About the authors:
Sandra Dunbar and Meg Pell live on the Mornington Peninsula south of Melbourne, Australia. Both are successful business owners. The decision to create a partnership and publish a series of recipe books was made in 2013 when the idea of taking a fresh look at carbs took shape. This has evolved into recipe development sessions where high carb foods are substituted with natural ingredient combinations.
Their first book, carbs by numbers recipe options 15g carbs or less per serve arrived in bookstores in late July 2015 with their second book already in the pipeline and due for release in the next few months. Georgia McDermott was commissioned to do the food styling and photography.

With more than 1,200 followers on Instagram, carbs by numbers has gained a lot of fans over recent months. And it’s not hard to see why when you look at the wonderful photos of the meals that Sandra and Meg have created.
