I was not expecting this book to be so big. I'm sorry the publisher did not have the faith to go hardback on this - it really deserved it. It is packed with recipes and information. It is, by far, the best paleo-cookbook I have seen. It proves that so called 'restricted diets' are not harmful as we are often led to believe. Sometimes your body just needs to be listened to, with both ears. Danielle is living proof that you can reach optimum health through diet. This book is the result of her personal experience.
You'll find over 150 gluten-free recipes that are also grain-free and dairy free. It is not vegetarian, like all paleo cooking - there is a lot of meat. Read about why Danielle had to adopt a new lifestyle, the ingredients and equipment she uses. There are many sections in the book - start your morning, small bites, soups, salads and sides, the main event, for the kid in all of us, muffins, loaves and cakes, sweets and treats, basics, sip on this plus menu suggestions, resources, conversions (it's American with American cup sizes etc, so use the conversions if you are not American).
I love all the non-meat recipes. The most tempting in my opinion are Pear-berry crisp, Allergy free breakfast cookies, Rosemary-raisin crackers, Asian mango slaw, Not-a-grain bars, Banana Mousse pancakes, Cinnamon applesauce, Almond crisps, Sandwich bread, Zucchini bread, Peach streusel coffee cake, Chocolate fudge sauce, oh ok everything in the sweet section and most important - finding out how to make my sweet potato fries crispy.
You can read the success stories at the back of the book and I love the recipe index with mini photos to jog your memory. Great book, very highly recommended.
