As mentioned in my previous post, the boyfriend picked up a copy of “Practical Paleo” by Diane Sanfilippo a few months ago, when we decided to give the Paleo diet a try.
We have looked through a few Paleo books, but always found ourselves referring back to Practical Paleo, because of how useful the book is. Even though it’s seriously exploding with information, the writing style and lay out of the book, makes the whole concept of the Paleo lifestyle a lot easier to understand.
The thing I love the most about this book is the tear out shopping guides available at the back of the book and online.
When I go on weekly grocery runs, I always find myself wandering around aimlessly, throwing random items into my shopping cart because I didn’t know what to get. I’m a smarter shopper now that I have this handy guide. I would always refer to the shopping guide when I make my grocery list to ensure I always buy enough of all my necessities for the week.
There are many drool worthy recipes in the book, but what really caught my eye was this one: Blueberry Lemon Muffins. I have to say I was pretty excited when I found out there was such a thing as paleo friendly muffins, because I thought the paleo diet meant I had to say good bye to these delicious treats forever!
I have made these muffins MANY times, and they have consistently turned out great!
Check out the blueberry goodness!
Did you guys pick up a copy of this amazing book yet? If so, what recipes have you tried?
Happy Baking! 🙂
I don’t like sweet potatoes.
When the boyfriend first picked up his copy of “Practical Paleo” by Diane Safilippo, he made such a huge batch of her sweet potato medallions, the thought of eating any more sweet potatoes made my stomach turn. However, lately, I have been trying hard to get back into clean eating again, so I decided to give sweet potatoes another chance. This is another super easy Practical Paleo recipe that involves a few basic ingredients: sweet potatoes (duh!), garlic powder, onion powder, cinnamon and a litte salt and pepper.
The result: DELICIOUS! I love the sweet and savory combination. The salt and garlic powder really brings out the sweetness of the sweet potato. Yum!
Maybe I am exaggerating, but I think this recipe may have changed my mind about sweet potatoes. Not entirely, as in I don’t think I can chow down sweet potatoes every day, but a little bit as a side dish to my lunch doesn’t seem so bad!
Happy Cooking! 🙂
