Paleo-friendly meets family-friendly in this beautiful, full-color how-to guide and cookbook that teaches readers how to cut all grains out of their diets without giving up flavorful, delicious food.
When Carrie Vitt was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, she was put on an elimination diet to cleanse her system that forbid gluten and grains. Failing to find recipes that followed her strict diet guidelines and still were delicious, she began experimenting in her own kitchen. Her organic, grain-free creations not only satisfied her own palate, but pleased friends and family as well. While she eventually reversed her thyroid disease, she continues to champion eating grain free.
In this beautiful full-color cookbook, she provides delicious dishes for a workable organic, grain-free lifestyle. Included are a diverse range of recipes for everything from pie crust and homemade nut butter to Pork Carnitas Breakfast Crepe Tacos and Grain-Free Biscuits, Avocado with Mango-Shrimp Salsa, Roasted Garlic Alfredo with Chicken and Vegetables, and Cauliflower “Fried Rice.” Here, too, are kid-friendly recipes such as Squash Macaroni and Cheese, Slice-and-Bake Cookies, and a Classic Birthday Cake with Buttercream Frosting.
In addition to sources for healthy ingredients, time-saving ideas, health tips, and 125 easy grain-free recipes, there are also simple dairy-free and Paleo adaptations for each recipe (it’s as simple as choosing coconut oil in place 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.
