Deliciously satisfying and visually stimulating, The Paleo Chocolate Lovers' Cookbook
will free you from ever feeling restricted by the Paleo lifestyle. This book features 80 gluten-, grain-, and dairy-free treats for the health-conscious chocolate lover.
Known to botanists as Theobroma cacao ("food of the gods"), cacao isn't just a flavor, it's an experience. It's no wonder that millions of people turn to chocolate for comfort and pleasure. Kelly Brozyna welcomes this heavenly treat into the Paleo diet with this innovative collection of recipes.
Choosing organic and ethically-sourced chocolate is equally as important as selecting sustainable meat. Addressing chocolate farming and production, Kelly and her husband present everyone's favorite indulgence in a global context.
The book concludes with a special bonus chapter — 10 savory recipes that incorporate chocolate. While mole is well-known for its delightful use of chocolate, other dishes such as Spicy Massaman Curry, Tomato and Cherry Chicken Cutlets, and Chili with Roasted Butternut Squash are equally complimented by chocolate.
Enjoy these recipes from breakfast to dinner, and especially for dessert.
