Hope you are all well and that you are as happy as I am that the weekend is here again!
To celebrate the Friday feeling I have a fantastic competition to launch!
Sarah of The Paleo Mom has kindly sent me a signed copy of her latest book "The Paleo Approach Cookbook" to giveaway to one lucky winner.
This book is amazing and is the follow up cookbook to accompany her wonderful resource filled book "The Paleo Approach"
Sarah is a scientist with a degree in Physics and a PhD in Biophysics. She is the blogger behind the award winning blog "The Paleo Mom"
Both books are MUST HAVES if you have an autoimmune condition and want to see improvements through food. While the original title book has a wealth of information on the benefits of the Autoimmune Paleo diet for helping to heal the body and reverse symptoms of Autoimmune conditions, this book is jammed full of healthy and delicious recipes which are sure to keep you and your family happy!
While the cookbook does not go into too much detail on the benefits of the Paleo Approach it does focus on taking the diet into the kitchen easily and efficiently by explaining what types of foods are allowed and not allowed, providing detailed meal plans and shopping lists as well as tips on what equipment you need for your kitchen.
The book is beautifully put together with fantastic photography and attention to detail but what really impresses me is the helpful tips Sarah adds to each recipe (such as telling you which components can be made ahead of time or telling you which cuts of meats would work best for each dish) These tips can be invaluable for someone who is new to cooking or may just be overwhelmed by all the changes they have to make. She also provides nutritional facts to each dish in the side bars including each amino acid and micronutrient present in the food. She also adds in notes for those who may be following a low FODMAP diet too (this displays the scientist in Sarah I think!)
I think this book is amazing and I really think it is an essential addition to your paleo bookcase, particularly if you have an autoimmune disorder or someone in your family has.
If you wish to be in with a chance of winning this cool book, please like the post on facebook and leave a comment below outlining why you should win it.
