KetoFLEX™-Aligned Plant-Rich, Low-Carb, Whole-Food Recipe Books

As of early 2023, we don’t have an official KetoFLEX 12/3™ recipe book.  In the meantime, you can find KetoFLEX™-aligned principles and recipes in the following sources.  Be cautious of popular “keto” recipe books that may sustain nutritional ketosis but are full of processed fats, low in vegetables, and with heavier amounts of meat than Dr. Bredesen generally advises.

6 RecipesMy KetoFLEX-Friendly Kitchen produces recipes by yours truly, Jen Felix.  I like to share tasty whole-food recipes that are KetoFLEX™-compliant, gluten-free, and dairy-free.  I have modified chef recipes to require less time and a shorter list of ingredients while retaining most of the deliciousness.  I provide them to my patients, clients, and support group members.


The Grain Brain Whole Life Planby Dr. David Perlmutter.  Dr. Perlmutter’s “whole life plan” resembles the ReCODE Protocol™ and his recipes are grain-free, ketogenic, and KetoFLEX™-friendly for optimizing brain and whole body health.


The Plant Paradox CookbookandThe Plant Paradox Family Cookbookby Dr. Steven Gundry.  Dr. Gundry’s outlines both low carb and ketogenic meal plans of his recipes that focus on being high in nutrition and low in lectins.  These books are popular for the recipes in spite of the poor evidence for many exaggerated claims.


 “The Wahl’s Protocol: Cooking for Life” by Dr. Terry Wahls.  Dr. Wahl’s emphasizes nutritionally dense recipes for healing both neurodegeneration and autoimmunity, especially as it relates to multiple sclerosis.  She indicates how to adjust each recipe to a low carb and ketogenic version.


Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?” by Dr. Mark Hyman.   Dr. Hyman’s “pegan” fusion of paleo and vegan recipes align with a non-ketogenic version of KetoFLEX™ and are broadly appealing.


 “The 30-Day Ketogenic Cleanse” by Maria Emmerlich.  Some recipes need a simple adjustment to reduce the portion of animal protein to better align with Dr. Bredesen’s KetoFLEX™ recommendations.


Ketotarianby Dr. Will Cole.  Dr. Cole guides your way toward eating “keto” utilizing  vegetarian ketogenic recipes.  His ovo-pescatarian food planning provides more brain nutrients than his vegan options which are inherently poor in bioavailable nutrients crucial for brain health, including long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, bioavailable zinc, choline, vitamin B12, adequate complete protein, and more.
