Synopses & Reviews
A family-friendly collection of simple paleo recipes that emphasize protein and produce, from breakfasts to entrees to treats, from the popular gluten-free blogger of Elana's Pantry.
Elana Amsterdam has established herself as an extremely successful gluten-free author and blogger; her simple recipes offer busy cooks streamlined techniques and short ingredients lists. While her first two books emphasized gluten-free recipes, Elana has eaten a grain-free diet since 2001. Her paleo recipes have become the most popular on her site, embraced by readers looking to not only eliminate gluten--but also dairy and grains--whether because of allergies or to generally improve their health. Paleo Cooking from Elana's Pantry offers nearly 100 recipes featuring lean proteins and simple vegetable dishes, plus classic desserts--all free from grain, gluten, and dairy, and made with natural sweeteners.
"Food blogger Amsterdam's latest cookbook is aimed firmly at the growing Paleo diet market, noting that 'a plant-based diet with small amounts of lean animal protein feel less inflated and more energetic.' There is a wealth of options for those looking to eliminate gluten, diary, and grains but be forewarned she also avoids tomatoes, potatoes, peppers and eggplant. Nevertheless the recipes are worth a try. She uses a great deal of coconut in various forms: coconut flour in Apricot Muffins, coconut oil in Paleo 'Potato' Leek Soup cauliflower replaces the potato, and coconut milk in a diary-free whipped cream. For those less keen on coconut, Amsterdam's Honey Lemon Chicken and Avocado Kale Salad will surely please. Unfortunately, all the recipes feel limited by the diet's strict protocols, so only the most restrictive eaters will find the bite worth the buy. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
