While Sophie's cooking is deeply rooted in tradition and family history, it has all of the elements that I love--simple, practical, flavorful, and fresh. One of the biggest lessons I've learned from Sophie is the art of enjoying food. I urge you, as you flip through the pages of this book and mark the recipes that are sure to become family favorites, to not only look to the task of feeding yourself, but of nourishing your spirit and creativity with these incredible recipes Sophie has created. Embarking on the Autoimmune Protocol has never been so enjoyable!

I love European food culture. I've been enamored by the beauty of the food and the joy people take in sitting down to eat together since I first traveled there at 19 years old. As you can imagine, from the first time I opened Simple French Paleo, I was transported. Sophie's incredible cookbook reminded me that the most beautiful, joyful things are also usually the most simple and uncomplicated. With her love of Provence and her Belgian roots, she shows us that enchanting European food culture can easily be a part of a healing AIP journey. While you are preparing one of her incredible recipes, you can also browse the quaint French country-side photos ... delighting all your senses and helping rejuvenate your body.

When Americans think of French food, we often think of complicated gourmet meals that are beyond our ability to prepare. Sophie breaks this stereotype with Simple French Paleo. Built on the Provençal tradition of honest and simple cooking, these flavorful dishes will bring new inspiration to your healing kitchen. From Lavender and Honey Pork Medallions, to No Nightshade Ratatouille, each recipe is approachable and enticing at the same time. And for those of us who "eat with our eyes", this book doesn't disappoint! You will find mouthwatering food photography alongside evocative photos of Provence that will make you want to book a trip to France yourself.
