From the Back Cover
Go grain-free—it’s gluten-free that’s paleo-friendly!
When Carrie Vitt was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, she was able to reverse it after being put on an elimination diet that cut out gluten and grains. Failing to find recipes that followed her strict diet guidelines but didn’t sacrifice flavor and variety, she began experimenting at home, creating grain-free meals and snacks that not only satisfied her own palate but pleased friends and family as well—including her two young daughters.
In this beautiful full-color cookbook, Carrie provides delicious, family-friendly recipes for a workable unprocessed, grain-free lifestyle. Included is a diverse range of recipes for everything from piecrust and homemade nut butter to Pork Carnitas Breakfast Crepe Tacos and Grain-Free Biscuits, Avocado with Mango-Shrimp Salsa, Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Alfredo with Chicken and Vegetables, and Cauliflower “Fried Rice.” Here, too, are kid-friendly recipes such as Kids’ Squash and Cheese, Cut-Out or Slice-and-Bake Cookies, and Classic Yellow Cake with Buttercream Frosting.
In addition to sources for healthy ingredients, time-saving ideas, health tips, and 125 easy grain-free recipes, Carrie offers simple variations on every recipe to make each follow more restrictive paleo and primal guidelines (it can be as simple as using coconut oil instead of butter!). Written in Carrie’s warm, inviting style, this helpful sourcebook is the perfect entrée to a healthy, nourishing diet that brings grain-free eating into the mainstream.

I am a huge fan of Carrie's website. She has an awesome section on kid friendly lunch ideas that are simple and d-lish and also a great section on her picks for natural beauty & household products. But let's be real...her dessert section is THE BEST!!!!
In comparison to her health challenges, my feel very minor. Yet, this book seems to meet everyone where they are. She shares what her path to healing has looked like and then teaches about pantry items, cooking equipment, how to adapt recipes, and how to eat out. She also includes recipes, such as Grain-Free Baking Powder, Chicken Stock, Bacon Mayonnaise, Grain-Free Pie Crust, Nut Milk, and Homemade Ketchup, that will take me back to some key cooking foundations and will also enable me to go beyond simply following her recipes!
With each category intro and recipe, Carrie continues to teach and give suggestions. I have been a part of the Grain-Free/Paleo/Non-Processed world for a while, yet, I have already gleaned new nuggets from her cookbook that I did not previously know.
She gives clear step-by-step directions that are effortless to follow, include nutrient dense foods, and come with the Paleo/Dairy-Free adaptation, which I really appreciate! Some of the recipes that I have already prepared from the book are: Coconut/Berry/Spinach Smoothie, Grain Free Stuffing, Cauliflower “Fried” Rice, Creamy Chicken/Vegetable/Tomato Soup, and Bacon-Wrapped Meat Loaf. Each one is a regular in my meal plan options and is well loved by those that get to share! Some of the recipes I can’t wait to try are: Cinnamon Rolls, No-Sugar Added Margarita, Garlicky Bone Marrow, Sausage Cheese Balls, Sautéed Bell Peppers with Chimichurri Sauce, Zucchini Fritters, Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pie, and Frozen Key Lime Pie.
As a whole, The Grain-Free Family Table delivers what it says it will deliver…and it actually blows it out of the water! It is user friendly, realistic in regular application, and offers hope to heal! And even though I am one that likes a clutter-free kitchen, this cookbook will be a kitchen counter dweller for quite some time! Thanks so much, Carrie Vitt!! Wonderful, wonderful job!!
First and foremost, my favorite part is the beginning of the book. In the cookbook she goes into specifics about what led to her thyroid disease, her symptoms that left her house bound for months on end with no hope in site, her final diagnosis and her path to healing. As we work our way towards a total healing for our son, it has been such an encouragement to read her story and know we are on the right path to accomplish that.
Living grain-free is a big jump for most of us and when we first started this journey at the end of September I was overwhelmed and not sure what was left to cook with or how to convert a traditional recipe into a grain-free dish. I am so glad I have this cookbook now, all in one place I can find all the grains to avoid and sneaky places they add it. At a glance I can see the types of flours that are healthy to cook with and why fats aren't all bad. I learned that lard is actually a good thing. Yes you read that right, lard has gotten a lot of unjustified bad press all these years. Lookout, it's staging a comeback folks.
Other things you'll find are helpful tips on kitchen equipment, how to get your kiddos to embrace grain-free, and a super helpful conversion chart for converting your old favorite recipes.
As I flipped through the book, I couldn't believe how delicious everything looks. I cannot wait to try each of these recipes. I'm especially excited that the holidays are coming up giving me plenty of chances to try out all the desserts.
I have two small children and they both asked for seconds when I made the Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pies and the Cauliflower Fried Rice. Instant hits!
I would highly recommend this cookbook if you live a grain-free lifestyle or even if you don't. Your stomach will thank you!
