About the Author

Elizabeth Nyland, creator of the popular blog guiltykitchen.com, had been cooking with coconut oil for years before she discovered it was the next new thing. Following in the footsteps her parents,who grew, hunted, or fished a large portion of their food, Nyland raises her own chickens for meat and eggs, grows her own produce in the summer months in her huge backyard garden, and buys the rest from local farmers.

Format: Paperback
The book includes 77 gluten-free, grain-free recipes divided into sections for Breakfast, Salads & Dressings, Sides, Mains, Snacks & Starters, and Desserts & Baked Goods.

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.

Poor coconut oil. It's been put through the wringer and back regarding whether it is a healthy or unhealthy food for people to be consuming. In case you've missed it, the latest research is showing that saturated fat is not the grand villain it has been made out to be in our culture. I know that will be a difficult thing for so many people to convince themselves of. But Elizabeth Nyland makes a convincing argument in her book Cooking With Coconut Oil.

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.

This book is fantastic, especially for those with diet restrictions or those who eat paleo. Beautiful pictures, and very approachable recipes. I wrote a review for the book on my blog: [...]

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 hands down one of my favorite cookbooks of all time now. If you haven't gotten on the Coconut Oil kick, do it now, and start with this book. Easy, delicious recipes that are extremely healthy.

I have had the chance to review this cookbook early on and I am impressed. My daughter is on a grain free diet and she can have most of these recipes. (A few have starch in them and she can't have starch although some grain free folks can.) There is a lovely photo for each recipe which is important to me because then I want to try things more.
This is worth your money; a nice sized book to have on hand as you make changes in your diet.

one of those slim recipe books that will be well worn by the end of the year. Has as its basic tenent the use of coconut oil or coconut manna but is really about how one approaches preparing foods. Lovely photographs and a very interesting selection of recipes to explore.

Format: Paperback
this is an excellent cookbook in my favorite format: 1 recipe per page followed by a full color picture.
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.
