About the Author
Alaena Haber, MS, OTR makes her cookbook debut with The Healing Kitchen, showcasing her dedication towards nourishing and fresh meals in a modern, budget-conscious kitchen. Alaena's no stranger to cooking – she runs a popular blog Grazed and Enthused. She started preparing meals for her family as a child and many of her techniques and flavor pairings are inspired by the aromatic family-style meals that made her Lebanese grandmother Teta a legend. But unlike Teta, you won't be spending all day at the stove complaining about sore feet with this collection of recipes. Alaena pursues a holistic approach to happiness and wellbeing and truly believes health starts on your plate. She passionately uses a grain-free, anti-inflammatory diet to successfully manage her own chronic illness and wants to bring these healing recipes to your dinner table. Alaena also recently received her master's degree in occupational therapy, which allows her to help adults and children pursue and achieve meaningful lives. Alaena, her husband, and their dog have lived in 4 cities in the past 2 years and enjoy traveling the country by foot, bike, and kayak.
Sarah Ballantyne, Ph.D. is the creator of the award-winning online resource ThePaleoMom.com; cohost of the syndicated top-rated The Paleo View podcast; and New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook. Sarah earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics at the age of 26 and spent the next four years doing research on critical care medicine, innate immunity, gene therapy and cell biology, earning a variety of awards for research excellence along the way. Sarah's transition from academic researcher to stay-at-home mom to award-winning and internationally-recognized health advocate and educator was driven by her own health journey, which included losing 120 pounds and using both diet and lifestyle to mitigate and reverse a dozen diagnosed health conditions. As a scientist both by training and by nature, Sarah is deeply interested in understanding how the foods we eat interact with our gut barriers, immune systems, and hormones to influence health. Sarah's innate curiosity goes further than just understanding diet and she is also deeply interested in the impact of lifestyle factors like sleep, stress and activity. Her passion for scientific literacy and her talent for distilling scientific concepts into straightforward and accessible explanations form the foundation of her work and her dedication to improving public health. Sarah also emphasizes a theory-to-practice approach in all of her work through her focus on recipe creation and everyday solutions.

Here are some highlights:
-Almost 200 recipes that are actually things you'd make on a regular basis--like the Vibrant Healing Soup Base on p. 150, the Sweet and Savory Shepherd's Pie on p. 192, and the Island Roasted Pork on p.202.
-Graphics indicating which recipes have 5 ingredients or less, take less than 30 minutes to cook, or are one-pot
-All recipes compliant with the strictest phase of the Autoimmune Protocol
-Recipes that take nutrient density into consideration--often a missing piece in AIP cookbooks. Try the Anti-Inflammatory Meatballs on p. 194 or the Wild Salmon with Roasted Raspberries on p. 234.
-Twelve (yes, twelve!) weeks of meal plans, including those for busy folks, those incorporating one-pot dishes, and those using a minimum of ingredients.
If you are looking for a practical resource for starting the Autoimmune Protocol or just eat healthier, this is the one for you!
So far, in addition to the brussels sprouts recipe Alaena and Sarah so generously allowed me to share with you in this post, we have made and loved the Avocado Mayo, the Mojo Pulled Chicken, the Spicy African Kale, and the Garlic Roasted Broccoli. I’m looking forward to trying the Bacon-Date Crusted Salmon, the BBQ Pulled Pork, the Rosemary and Prosciutto Stromboli, and Cherry Pie Bars – all of which I have heard fantastic things about from some of the other bloggers who got preview copies.
I’m also thrilled to say that the recipes in The Healing Kitchen pass the “easy” test, which is why I’m not only excited to have this book for myself, but why I’m happily recommending it to all my readers, whether you are a kitchen newbie or an experienced cook. One of my favorite features of the recipes is that all of them include tips for storage and when relevant, reheating as well. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another cookbook that does that and it is highly appreciated, especially since eating paleo means giving up convenience foods and batch cooking and relying on leftovers helps fill that void for busy people.
This is still my favorite cookbook, although I use the Against All Grain books, too. Our favorite main dish recipes are Sweet & Savory Shepherd's Pie, Teriyaki Chicken & Fried (cauliflower) Rice, Garlic & Rosemary Crusted Pork Loin, Ham & Pineapple Pizza, Bacon Date Crusted Salmon, and Beef Pot Pie. I make double batches of some of these to freeze for lunch at work. I have liked every recipe I have tried, and I enjoy trying new recipes because I know I will probably like them. *I have to leave onion out of my recipes, and everything still tastes fantastic.
OK - Just made the Plantain Wraps and my daughter and I were very impressed. Bought the green plantains at an asian market, used a Cuisinart to blend ingredients together and they cooked up just as the recipe described. We made a sandwich with one, ate one plain with salt and pepper and another with cinnamon and honey. Good job Sarah and Alaena!!
