Want to follow a protein-based diet but can't find enough recipes? One Newell author could have the tastes you desire.
One cookbook by a Newell woman is advocating a return to protein. In her newest book, Barbara Doyen follows up on the low-carb, protein-based diet movement and provides over 450 tasty meals.
Doyen, who is a literary agent, has noticed the increase in protein-based diets over the past few years, and in 1995 she and her husband, Bob, started following Dr. Robert Atkins' low-carbohydrate diet.
However, after they started the Atkins' diet, Doyen noticed that there was a limited variety of recipes, with Atkins' book listing only 150 meals.
So Doyen decided to develop her own cookbook to compliment Atkins' program. She points out that her "Back to Protein - The Low Carb, No Carb Meat Cookbook," is the most complete protein cookbook available.
"This is the book I tried to buy, but couldn't find," she said.
Doyen said her cookbook is aimed at anyone interested in a protein diet, though she added that the book doesn't instruct someone on how to start a diet - she just gives them a healthy variety from which to choose.
"This book has 450 recipes and variations and the widest range," she said.
