There are lots of recipes in the “Eat Rich, Live Long” book and each is accompanied by wonderful full page color pictures. However, the book isn’t written for ApoE4s, but for general population, so you would have to modify them. But that’s true with all cookbooks and websites. But the reason I’m a fan of the book is the content, it’s the only one I’ve run across that takes the insulin resistance spectrum into account.
There is the Plant Paradox Recipe sharing facebook group and Vegan keto facebook groups (low saturated fat), have you looked into those?

What is low saturated fat? Good question. I’m guessing the 14 grams a day by the American Heart Association is a “spitball” there’s still so much we don’t know about saturated fats. For the general population, I don’t think it’s the big, bad monster it’s been portrayed to be, but because of studies that show that’s not entirely true for ε4s, I go the conservative route and moderate my saturated fat intake: no cheese, no meat except fish and only small portions of that, and basically the only oil I consume is olive oil (in generous quantities) and every 6 months I get my blood tested and my oxidized LDL (oxLDL) levels are good. But I don’t obsess over saturated fats. If it’s a choice between low glycemic or low saturated fat, remember the advice in the Primer, glycemic control trumps lipids every time.
