About Keto Slow Cooker Cookbook: 100 Irresistible Low-Carb Recipes for Weight Loss and Improved Health by Vanessa Olsen:
Slow cook your way to better health!
Slow cookers have been around for decades and are a staple in most homes, but did you know just how good of a tool they are when it comes to cooking healthy food? This book walks you through how to use a slow cooker, how to find the best one for your family, and why its versatility and convenience can make the ketogenic diet easier.
What is the ketogenic diet? It’s the low-carb, high-fat diet of your dreams that lets you eat full-fat dairy, steak, vegetables, and more. This book will explore the science behind “ketosis,” which is when the body relies on ketones instead of protein or carbs for fuel, as well as how to power through rough patches of the journey. You’ll also find advice on grocery shopping and pantry stocking.
Substitutions like cauliflower rice, cauliflower mash, zoodles, and spaghetti squash make giving up grains, rice, and pasta much easier. When you’re traveling, there are also ways to stay on track, like by doing lots of research on local eateries, bringing your own food when you can, and finding a hotel with a kitchen. As for the recipes in the book, you’ll find 100 that cover breakfasts, sides and snacks, desserts, and all kinds of meals using poultry, seafood, beef, and more. There are keto-approved variations on classics like egg casseroles, pot roasts, chicken soup, and dips, as well as desserts for both chocolate or citrus lovers.
Some of those awesome dishes include: Mandarin chicken wings with a homemade orange sauce, bacon and Swiss chicken, cider-braised beef shanks, tilapia with chili- butter, vegetarian lasagna, homemade condiments like ketchup and Alfredo sauce, almond-fudge cake, and lime-cheesecake custard.
The ketogenic diet has been shown to boost a person’s energy, sharpen their mental clarity, protect against serious diseases, and lead to weight loss. With a tool like the slow cooker and a book like this, finding inspiration has never been easier!

In a typical work week, Vanessa works with up to 30 different athletic clients.
When Vanessa isn’t teaching athletes how to up their game, she can be found at the gym upping her own. Her protein powder collection is impressive – it’s usually the first thing she shows off when guests come to visit. This goes without saying that her favorite room in the house is the kitchen.
