This week I'm reviewing a great ebook by Elviira Krebber, the very talented food blogger, photographer and creator of Low-Carb, So Simple. For several years, Elvira has been helping people follow a healthy low-carb diet. Her blog and recipes are unlike anything else: you won't need more than 5 ingredients to make any of them! Elviira also runs a popular Facebook page where she shares her delicious low-carb creations.

In the past, we have even exchanged a few recipes. I created these Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs for her blog which soon became viral over the social media. Also, Elviira created these two amazing sides for my blog: Taco Turnip Fries and Green Beans with Lemon & Almonds.

You can buy Low-carb, So Simple: Easy Everyday Recipes with 5 Ingredients or Less by Elviira Krebber on her website or on Amazon (kindle ebook).

What You'll Find in The eBook

Over 80 low-carb, gluten-free, sugar-free and sweetener-free recipes including:

Low-Carb, So Simple: Yellow Cauliflower Couscous

What I Like About The eBook

Elviira's ebook proves that low-carb cooking can be quick and affordable. As all of her recipes, ingredients used in this ebook are easy to find. You will be able to make delicious meals like Cheesy Meatloaf in a Mug, Eggstatic Egg Curry or Garlic & Herb Crackers in just a few minutes. All recipes are accompanied by beautiful photos and include nutrition facts to make it easy for you to meet your macronutrient targets.

There are no desserts - all recipes are savoury. This is great for those who either avoid all sweeteners or can't easily buy healthy low-carb substitutes.

Who Is This eBook For

This ebook is perfect for healthy-conscious busy moms and those who don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. All recipes are keto-friendly and several recipes are also paleo-friendly (some include dairy).

Over 80 Delicious Low-carb Recipes

From all the amazingly looking recipes I picked the Yellow Cauliflower Couscous which has become a staple in my house. It's incredibly easy to make, full of flavour and goes great with any meat and vegetable dishes. Last time I made this recipe, I tripled the batch and used it as a side with slow-cooked meat throughout the week.

What Elviira says about her Yellow Cauliflower Couscous: This side dish is smoothly accompanying the main dish, letting it shine. If you prefer more pronounced flavors with this healthier, cauliflower- based version of the classic couscous, you can add chopped fresh herbs on top of the ready dish. The possibilities for variations are endless.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

The math doesn't make sense.  So net carbs per serving (which seems to be 1/2 the recipe) is 7.7 but net carbs for the whole recipe is 3.9 carbs?  I think the math is backward?


Hi Polly, if you make 4 servings from the ingredients given, there will be 3.85 g net carbs (the small difference is caused by rounding). If you make 2 servings using the same amount of ingredients, it will be 7.7 g net carbs. Hope this helps.


Thank you, Martina, for reviewing my book! 😊


Thank you for your amazing recipes Elviira! 😊


This is so tasty!! I didn't have turmeric but used more curry powder instead and it was amazing. I also added some chicken and it was the perfect dinner!


Sounds delicious!


This looks good, throw a little shredded chicken in there and you have a full meal. Thanks for sharing!


It tastes amazing - I love the strong curry flavour and that goes great with chicken 😊
