Those who are new to a grain-free lifestyle will be happy to see gluten-free versions of several classics and fan favorites, like pancakes, waffles, cauliflower-crusted pizza (one of the few recipes in the book that calls for dairy), creamy almond butter pork pad thai, primal chili, and coconut oil mayonnaise. There are also a few fancier, bistro-style dishes, like salt-roasted beet salad with honey-lemon-vanilla dressing and grilled skirt steak with chimichurri.
I have already tried the Caveman Porridge, Primal Chili, and Pork Chops with Apple Compote, and all three were fabulous! I have a bunch of other recipes bookmarked to try. This book is a great choice for anyone looking to cook healthier meals with whole foods, whether or not you follow a specific set of dietary restrictions.
With the rise in popularity of Paleo, primal, low-carb and ketogenic diets, this book is the PERFECT companion to all of those nutritional choices. I personally eat a ketogenic Paleo diet nixing grains, sugar and starch from my diet and adding in a lot more sources of dietary fat like butter, full-fat meats and cheeses, eggs, and, yes, even coconut oil. When you switch your body from being fueled by carbohydrates (glucose) to one being fueled by fat (ketones), the saturated fat you consume becomes your energy. So you need to eat a lot more of it for running your body, keeping your hunger under control, and making your food taste so incredibly good in the process. If people would end their fat-phobia, then our weight and health would improve dramatically.
In this book, you get a visual demonstration of how to incorporate this amazing fat into every meal in your diet. Elizabeth does an incredible job of offering up variety so you're never bored eating the same thing over and over again. And if you're worried about all of your food tasting like coconut, worry not. The oil complements the foods you consume and doesn't take away from the flavors you know and love. GET THIS BOOK and discover what you're missing out on.
PS: If you don't already cook grain/gluten free, you will find the ingredient lists to be a little pricey. Many recipes call for coconut flour and/or arrowroot flour. It's not a criticism of the book; buying specialty items like that comes with the paleo territory.
This is worth your money; a nice sized book to have on hand as you make changes in your diet.
For more details and a review I wrote you can go to my blog. [...]
the author shows her kitchen skills by keeping the number of ingredients fairly short.
her instructions are simple and to the point.
the recipes are not fussy in prep work. no particular fancy tools, although a food processor helps.
i am an avid cookbook reader.
i am also a food scientist and researching health care issues has become a necessary hobby.
my husband is gluten intolerant, does not process corn properly and should avoid a high carb/grain diet.
i am also looking for more vegetable oriented recipes for my own health and to use up all the produce from my garden.
i checked out this book from the library and tried these recipes first.
i tried the chocolate mousse out on my family christmas day and they could not figure out the secret ingredient was avocado.
i used the leftover avocado in the un-hollandaise sauce for the eggs benedict, my standard christmas breakfast. the mushroom was a satisfying substitute for the english muffin.
made the quiche as a spinach/kale pie with the sweet potato crust. my husband gobbled it up.
i used the leftover grated sweet potatoes in the meat balls. again, husband loved them.
made the cauliflower crusted pizza. i will take more care in drying out the cauliflower the next time to crisp it up. it is more like a layered lasagna, but again, it was eaten in a flash.
i had heard of mashed cauliflower and cauliflower rice. enjoyed the mashed cauliflower, but not wild about the rice, but i have an asian bias.
fried my first plaintains, although a neighbor had been serving them to me for a couple of years.
the only recipe that did not work for me was the layered bars.Read more ›
