Have you ever found yourself wondering, “What’s for dinner tonight?”
And in all honesty, you gave in and went out to eat because the act of figuring out what to eat and all the details that goes along with it was just too much after a long day?
I had the incredible pleasure to meet a woman who has answered your prayers. Her name is Amber Beam and she realized that the steps between planning and cooking needed to be addressed when developing a practical cookbook for the “regular Jane.”
What came out of years of personal struggle to lose weight was a huge lightbulb moment, for Amber. She was introduced to the Paleo Diet (short-hand for a clean naturally Gluten-Free diet based on what human ancestors would eat that is free from all grains, legumes, refined sugars, soy and dairy) and her life did a total 180. The result was the cookbook “Weeknight Paleo” a year ago (this month actually marks the one year anniversary since the book was first published!!).
I met Amber at a conference in March called PaleoFX and almost immediately from flipping through her book, my jaw hit the ground. There are so few cookbook organized for those who actually need practical steps written out. Recipes? Yep. Weekly Shopping lists? Oh yeah! NINE weeks of dinners planned out for you? OMG, yes!!!!
“Weeknight Paleo” is one of the neatest cookbooks I’ve had the pleasure of checking out. Not only are all of the recipes gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free, but they focus heavily on practical meals that are both husband and kid-friendly. This book is unpretentious, informative and intelligently laid out. Amber literally thought of all the steps you’d need to do and let’s you know what preparations to do ahead of time (like on Sunday when you’ve got a bit more free time) to get certain key timesavers out of the way.
With nine weeks of restaurant-quality meals under your belt, you can then either start over to week one or perhaps begin to use Amber’s simple system to plan out your own. Truthfully, what Amber has done in “Weeknight Paleo” is to give you a food road map that will guarantee good food on the table.
And another plus, most of the ingredients in the recipes are spices and herbs (nothing too fancy or complicated to overwhelm a finicky palette) that properly season a handful of main ingredients. This isn’t just some other gluten-free cookbook with 25+ ingredient recipes. No laundry lists of hard-to-find ingredients!
Simple, to the point, and absolutely awesome, the “Weeknight Paleo” cookbook is a must have!
Because it’s the “Weeknight Paleo” Cookbook birthday…
