Anyone know of a beautiful, fun-to-read low-carb cookbook that does not feel gimmicky?

My doctor instructed me to eat low carb (for my blood sugar), and I can't stand the cookbooks that just scream "I'm a diet book!" or "Don't get diabetes!" I'd love something to display on my bookshelf, to read for leisure, and of course, to help me cook unique and delicious low-carb dishes. Thanks so much!

I'm not sure if you'd consider them gimmicky or not. They both speak of the benefits of eating Paleo, but they are also excellent cookbooks.

The book and wonderful people who got me started on Paleo in a very strict way for 30 days. I've since done Whole 100s when I really go off course.

Oh KTR, I have all my favorites on my Kindle. It's great to be able to pull them up anytime, anywhere.

I never thought about putting a cookbook on my iPad. I'd probably use it more often that way.

Melissa Joulwan has a new cookbook out for busy weeknights that I've been considering. https://www.amazon.com...
I find I use recipes on websites more than cookbooks though. With that being said, I enjoy the nomnompaleo site. There are many paleo blogs. What made it all seem simpler to me was to just focus on having a protein and a vegetable at each meal rather than try making something elaborate.

KTR, about to download the new one to my Kindle. I have Well Fed and Well Fed 2.

Kirsten, Melissa's website is www.clothesmakethegirl. Her recipes are awesome and she and NomNom both have great a sense of humor. They also both have weekly emails that include recipes if you like that sort of thing.

I would look at cookbooks of cuisines that focus on flavorful proteins and vegetables such as Brazilian, Latin America, and the Meditterean.
