WMC PR promotes two new ‘carbs by numbers’ recipe books



Boutique Melbourne PR agency, WMC Public Relations < www.wmcpr.com.au > has just completed the successful launch of two new recipe books written by Sandra Dunbar and Meg Pell who live on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne.

Both women are successful business owners and have partnered together to publish a series of cook books where high carb foods are substituted with natural ingredient combinations. 

Their first book, carbs by numbers recipe options - 15g carbs or less per serve was published in mid 2015. A second book, carbs by numbers - low carb recipe options - Christmas was published in December and a third book is already in the pipeline and due for release in a few months. 

A feature of the beautifully presented and easy to use cook books is an extended nutritional panel for every recipe that covers energy ─ kilojoules and calories, protein, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, carbohydrate, sugars, dietary fibre, vitamin C, total vitamin A, sodium, potassium, calcium and iron.

The book makes carb-conscious meal planning easy. For example, four seed crackers (1g) with guacamole (1g) followed by pork and sage rounds with cauliflower mash (4g) and finishing with tiramisu (7g), adds up to a meal of just 13g of carbohydrates.

The books comes with a full colour photograph per recipe and includes options that many low-carb followers may not expect to find such as crunchy granola, Japanese pancakes, tiramisu, pizza and chocolate cake. The recipes are also gluten free.

There’s a good cross section of hot and cold recipes, vegetarian and non vegetarian, and all are family-friendly. All the ingredients are readily available at supermarkets.

The wonderful food styling and photography was by Georgia McDermott.

The books are available from all good bookstores and from the online store at www.carbsbynumbers.com
