Featured Recipe: Asian Stir-Fry with Cauliflower Rice

This family-friendly collection of simple Paleo recipes emphasizes protein and produce — including breakfasts, entrees, and treats — from the popular gluten-free blogger of Elana’s Pantry. If you’re looking to eliminate gluten, dairy, grains, or processed foods from your diet, many believe that Paleo cooking is the perfect solution for food allergy relief and better all-around health. Naturally based on the foods our Paleolithic ancestors ate for generations, the Paleo diet emphasizes meat and seafood, vegetables, fruit, and nuts.

Author and beloved food blogger Elana Amsterdam has been living grain-free for over ten years. In Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, Amsterdam offers up her streamlined techniques and recipes with minimal ingredients for busy cooks on the run. She transforms simple, classic family favorites such as pancakes and ice cream with Paleo-friendly ingredients like almond flour and coconut milk. Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry includes nearly 100 recipes featuring the Paleo mainstays of lean proteins and simple vegetable dishes, plus wholesome sweet treats — all free from grains, gluten, and dairy, and made with natural sweeteners.

Cooks&Books&Recipes Editors, on Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry:

I don’t eat gluten-free or grain-free or dairy-free or processed-sugar-free. But I’ve heard a lot about this type of diet from my sister. As a result of health issues experienced by two of her daughters, my sister, Debbie Phillips, dove head-first into this eating plan, for the whole family. When I asked her about Elana, she wrote: “We are thankful to have discovered Elana’s Pantry two years ago when our teenaged daughter was diagnosed with MS. Even though she is thin, she LOVES sugar . . . and food in general . . . so starting on a gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free diet seemed overwhelming. We all joined her in the endeavor, and recipes from Elana literally saved us and made it SO much easier to stick to the new healthy-eating lifestyle. Elana’s recipes for brownies and chocolate chip cookies are the best!”

The author of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook and Gluten-Free Cupcakes, Elana explores Paleo cooking in her latest cookbook. What’s included? Just about everything. Chapters feature: Breakfast; Breads and Crackers; Vegetables; Entrées; Condiments, Spreads, and Toppings; Pies, Pastries, and Crusts; Ice Cream; Cookies and Bars; Beverages. The first chapter is The Paleo Pantry, with very helpful tips on what you need to stock up on — and why. Even if you’re not eating a strictly Paleo diet, the beautiful color photos will have you wanting to try every recipe. That’s what happened to me . . .

Paperback (6.9 x 7.8 inches); Kindle edition
