Our household isn't gluten-free, but I do experiment with flours, and love that the recipes in this book focus on ingredients that are wholesome and easy to find. Plus, the Pure Kitchen is a whole food cookbook that is 100% dairy-free! I definitely love being able to say that last part.

As I flipped through The Pure Kitchen, I found myself drawn into every single recipe. No exaggeration. Not only do they all sound great, but they also have these wonderfully simple, "everyday food" ingredient lists. In fact, I could make more than 50% of the recipes right now, without even having to go to the store. For the other 50%, just two more flours and some fresh ingredients, and I would be covered.

Of course, I couldn't literally make all of the recipes (not yet, anyways), so I started with a selection of recipes that caught my eye ...

First up was the Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies. They were definitely thick, chewy, delicious, and I will be making them again. However, this pb cookie version was different from most. This is a hearty, snack bar-like cookie that's sweetened with dates and maple syrup. I found them filling and energizing yet sweet enough to fix my husband's sugar cravings ... not an easy thing to do!

Next up was a double-whammy Pure Kitchen lunch. I went light with the Buckwheat & Olive Oil Flatbread and the Arugula & Fennel Salad. This was my first venture into baking with buckwheat, and we loved it. Though gluten-free, the bread had a wonderful texture and a simple earthy taste. I'm looking forward to experimenting with herbs and flavors in that recipe. The salad was brilliant in both appearance and taste. It was spiked with a double dose of orange, and paired with the bold flavors of balsamic and Dijon.

This book just recently arrived on my doorstep and I have to say I immediately read through every single recipe. I could not wait to get into the kitchen and start using it. Her recipes are designed exactly the way I cook. She uses whole grain gluten free flours in every one of the baking recipes. And all of the sides and main dish meals are packed with pure healthy ingredients. I have already made a few of the recipes in this book and they have been huge hits in my family (even with my little ones). I can see this as being a staple in my kitchen and have a feeling it is going to have that well-used, greasy finger-print covered look very soon.

When my Dr. told me I needed to cut gluten from my diet, she said "don't just substitute with gluten free versions, replace it with things that make you feel good how gluten makes you feel bad"
That's what this book does. The recipes don't replace once processed food with gluten free processed food, it changes your eating habits to eating things that make you feel good from the inside out. I recommend it to anyone trying to eat and feel better.

I found out about this book while doing a Google search for gluten and dairy-free cookbooks. They are not all the same as I found out. I was also changing my diet to significantly decrease my sugar intake and was switching to a whole foods approach to eating.

What sets this book apart was that the author takes a "pure" or whole foods approach to the recipes which is different than many other GFDF cookbooks.I also enjoyed that there is a lot of information packed into the book in addition to the recipes. For a novice cook, especially one embarking on such a radical new food plan, this is essential. There is information on how why eating like this is helpful, organizing your kitchen/pantry, etc.

I have made several of the recipes including Curried Turkey Noodle Stew, Kitchen Health Cookies,and Black Bean and Quinoa Pattiies. I have yet to be disappointed. I have had other family members and friends eat these recipes despite the fact that they are NOT on the same eating plan I am and they have been surprised how good the food was.

This is a must purchase cookbook.

The Pure Kitchen isn't just a cookbook containing 100 delicious gluten-free, dairy-free recipes. It's an incredible resource for healthy eating whether you are just starting off on your journey to wellness or you need some reminders and fine tuning. Hallie starts by answering the question "Why eat pure?", and if her answer doesn't convince you to clean up your eating, her lists of foods to avoid and foods to include will inspire you to make changes.

Hallie is very clear that healthy eating isn't about restricting, calorie counting, or dieting. Healthy eating is a way of properly nourishing our bodies, embracing the wide range of nutrient-dense fruits, vegetables, and other plant-based foods, and feeling fantastic in the process. It's about having a healthy relationship with food, making well-balanced choices, and living purely. Just reading Hallie's book makes you feel good!

There's an entire section on tips for stocking your pure kitchen, a tutorial on gluten-free flours, and all throughout the book she gives technique tips, ingredient tips, shopping tips, and health benefits of featured ingredients. Again, The Pure Kitchen isn't just another cookbook. It's a resource book for healthy living. With healthy intentions and New Year's Resolutions fresh on our minds, consider adding The Pure Kitchen to your resources for improving yourself from the inside out. Since purchasing this book, I've made at least one of the recipes each week. Every single recipe dish has been delicious, wholesome, and easy to make. I highly recommend The Pure Kitchen.
