After reading the incredible book, Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes (the best and most thoroughly researched book on nutrition I’ve ever read), over the summer I have been trying to seriously cut down on the old carbs.

The beauty of doing that is you can and should increase your fat intake, which means some really yummy sauces, including this Garlic Butter baby, which I’ve slightly adapted from the book New Atkins, New You (as recommended by Gary Taubes).
