About the Author
When Kelly Bejelly was told that she was prediabetic in 2009, she tried the Paleo diet in a last-ditch effort to cure herself. Within six months, she lost sixty-five pounds, normalized her blood sugar lev-els, and won her battle with anxiety and depression. She then began experiment-ing with grain-free recipes in an attempt to convince her picky-eater husband that giving up gluten was not a life sentence to a tasteless existence. Now Kelly shares Paleo comfort food recipes on her web-site, A Girl Worth Saving, and proves that you can still enjoy your favorite recipes without grains, gluten, or dairy.
Kelly lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and son.

I have been (was) an avid baker for more than 50 years, and have a deep appreciation for the effort Kelly and Danielle have put into creating new recipes for baked goods using healthy, grain-free alternative flours. Some traditional dishes are easy to convert to Paleo without a specific recipe - it's easy to figure out what to omit or substitute. HOWEVER, baked goods are quite another story. I can only imagine how many expensive ingredients they tossed out in developing these wonderful baked goods recipes, and I am grateful for their hard work.
Kelly's "Paleo Eats" is a treasure trove of great recipes. I've made many and liked them all. But for me, the stand-out winner in this cookbook is her "Grain Free Wraps," on page 78. Trying to eat grain-free isn't easy when you've eaten wheat flour bread/pasta/baked goods for 67 years. I've tried countless grain-free wrap recipes, and most were so dry they'd stick in my throat, or crumble when trying to use them. But Kelly's recipe for wraps is a winner.
AND I DISCOVERED SOMETHING ELSE ==> I follow Kelly's recipe with few minor changes - I use a heaping 1/4-teaspoon of salt (just a personal preference), and I use melted ghee (for the added flavor) instead of coconut oil. I also cook them in a non-stick pan and rotate the pan to spread the batter into 8-inch circles instead of 5-inch - this makes them a little thinner. The wraps are not dry or crumbly, and even though they're thinner, they are still sturdy and pliable enough to wrap around all sorts of good things without falling apart . . . and they are good for something else . . .
PRETEND PASTA ==> When the wraps are cool, I roll them up tightly, then with a sharp knife cut them (thick or thin) into "noodles" just like an Italian grandmother. Pour your favorite Paleo Spaghetti/Bolognese/whatever sauce on top, and dig in - you'll be amazed! They also hold up well in soup without falling apart. Do you miss Top Ramen? - well, add some "wrap-noodles" to homemade chicken bone broth and you'll miss it no more. Or use them in your own chicken noodle soup. And finally, take one or more of the cooled wraps, tear it into quarters, drop it into you food processor and pulse until it looks like RICE or COUSCOUS❗ I don't mind "zoodles" made from zucchini or other vegetables, but I like these wrap-noodles a lot more because they are closer to traditional pasta, more substantial/filling, and they hold up better.
I am one happy, grain-free camper.
The photos are beautiful, and the instructions are clear. I appreciate that, if one is already following Paleo food prep, no additional shopping is required for specialty items. But if I *did* need a pantry item, she's got me covered with a listing of suggested sources. Extras to help us better incorporate the recipes into our plans are: (1) on the recipe page, mentions of other dishes in the cookbook that would go well with this dish; (2) a graphic element at the bottom of the recipe page identifies which menu category the dish fits into, and sometimes there is also a special notation that the recipe fits into a special event category such as birthday/holiday. To easily find a recipe, there is a section toward the back of the book where each recipe in a menu category is listed using a small photo - for those of us with visual memories. I use an index a lot to find recipes and I have found a few issues with this index. So I will either write in missing entries or perhaps use the visual index of recipe categories, or maybe even turn to the Table of Contents.
This is a "comfort food" cookbook, and I'm looking forward to trying many of the recipes. "Food from the Heart." The Honey Ginger Carrots were a hit yesterday. I've been making the Sweet Bread, but have had to make some adjustments. I've read elsewhere, though, that the brand of coconut flour one uses can make a huge difference in how the baked goods turn out. I'm not quite satisfied yet, but DH asks for me to make it when we run out, so it's enough of a success.
I'm pretty sure this is going to be one of my "go-to" books among my Paleo cookbooks. I'm looking forward to many delicious meals incorporating these recipes. Am especially looking forward to the No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry 'Cheesecake.' (Valentine's Day is coming up soon, and it's going to be on the menu!)
The book is very well laid-out and organized. There is an entire "baking tutorial" in the back to help you succeed at making the dessert and bread options. There is also a handy reference index with small snapshots to find recipes quickly, and a detailed references / resources section. Great for Paleo newbies as well as those like myself who have been eating clean for a while now. Well done, Kelly!
