I can’t remember the last time I bought a cookbook. In my minimalist journey, I have been donating cookbooks and taking iPhone pictures or scanning only the few recipes I actually like. For the most part, just about any recipe can be found online. Shockingly, I bought a cookbook last week! Since January, I have been checking in on a couple of Paleo blogs I really like on a fairly consistent basis, including (but not limited to) Everyday Paleo and Robb Wolf’s blog. When EverydayPaleo.com and GrowingupPaleo.com launched their own Paleo Talk Podcast, I started listening and heard them mention Sarah Fragoso’s new cookbook Everyday Paleo. Sarah is a busy mother of three, so she totally “gets” how crazy my life can be.
Although the title of this post says “good for gluten-free and dairy-free,” I do realize the recipes use eggs. However, I also know (from my years as a vegan) that eggs are pretty easy to replace in many recipes. Now, obviously, the section titled eggs is one that should probably be skipped if you have an egg allergy (I can’t really think of a way to make the Egg Muffins without eggs!). However, even without the use of that section, this cookbook is still worth your money if you value your health and your time. Nothing too fancy-schmancy here; just darn good food.
I haven’t made used a ton of recipe’s just yet (we eat a lot of leftovers), but some things I’ve made and loved are:
- Paleo Pizza
- Garlic Beef Stew with Acorn Squash
- Paleo Meatloaf (made into meatloaf muffins)
So, why did I break my minimalist rule and buy a cookbook? This is more than a cookbook. It’s a pep-talk and fitness guide too. This one is a keeper!
As I continue to make recipes from Sarah’s cookbook, I’ll be sure to let you know!
