LowCarbUSA® and Society of Metabolic Health founder Doug Reynolds has often talked about the importance of making therapeutic carbohydrate restriction available to as wide an audience as possible, in spite of any cultural, religious, ethical, or other differences.  “We don’t want to exclude anyone from reaping the benefits of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, regardless of their differences,” Doug said. “We are enthusiastic to learn that there is a book like this that provides recipes that are healthy and delicious, while meeting the needs of those who choose to follow a vegetarian way of eating.”

In Episode 101 of the LowCarbUSA® Podcast, Doug talks with Vasudha Viswanath, a lifelong vegetarian and passionate home cook, whose new book, The Vegetarian Reset: 75 Low-Carb, Plant-Forward Recipes from Around the World, will hit bookshelves January 17, 2023.  “In The Vegetarian Reset, we take a little trip around the world to draw inspiration from an array of traditional cuisines. Learn to cook creative and flavorful vegetarian meals that are low-carb and high-protein, such as recipes for zucchini bread from scratch, paella with cauliflower rice, or paneer transformed into gnocchi!”  Whether you already follow a low-carb lifestyle, or simply want to add more healthy dishes into your diet, discover the tools to reset your plant-forward palate with these 75 recipes.

Vasudha is not only the author of The Vegetarian Reset, she is the founder of We Ate Well (, a community for vegetarian foodies that puts nutrition back in focus. She has been a lifelong vegetarian and passionate home cook. Her journey into eating healthy started after the results of a physical revealed that her A1C level identified her as pre-diabetic.  “I had always thought of myself as fit and healthy,” Vasudha said. “I never thought I could get a diagnosis like that. I found myself asking, ‘What am I supposed to eat?’”  She subsequently transformed the way she cooks to cut out excessive starch and sugar and has never felt better.  “The world is running in this plant-based direction,” she said, “but the focus is on highly processed products like fake meat and refined grains. Eating plant-based doesn’t automatically make you healthy. For any diet to be sustainable long-term, you need to get the right nutrients.”

You can order The Vegetarian Reset on Amazon.
