Since starting this journey into grain-free cooking, I have found a whole community of people who believe in a more natural way of eating. The idea is to eat the way our ancestors did hundreds of thousands of years ago. Our digestive systems haven’t changed much since then but our food has. It’s far more processed, pumped full of chemicals, crops have been hybridized out of all recognition from what we used to eat and many of the animals we eat no longer run free across the land.
My family has never eaten too much processed food because I have always been wary of those ingredient lists which are designed to confuse you. I tell my son, if you don’t know where the food came from, don’t buy or eat it. But now I have also eliminated grain, refined sugar, legumes and hydrogenated oils in line with the Paleo way of eating. One of the many blogs I have discovered is Civilized Caveman, a wonderful resource of Paleo recipes. George has now written this amazing cookbook of over 200 Paleo recipes. These are recipes that work whether you are Paleo or not because they are based on good healthy, natural, non-processed eating.
Tonight I cooked one of the recipes from his cookbook. It was simple to prepare and delicious. Because Adriano has a mountain biking race on Sunday, he is carb loading so I boiled a plate of rice for him and Dario but I didn’t need the extra food.
If you are interested in having a look at the cookbook, it has been reduced from $47 to just $19.95. Click on the book below for more information and the direct chance to buy it at this discounted price.
