My Favorite Paleo Cookbook
This has quickly become one of my favorite cookbooks. The photography is amazing and the book reads like a good story. You’ll get to know Michelle and her family more and more as you cook with her. With every page and recipe, she invites you into her kitchen and life. She shares witty stories from her childhood, and adorable pictures of the young boys, eating her delicious creations. By the time you’ve read through the book, and delighted in cooking a handful of recipes, you’ll feel like Michelle is one of your besties.
Michelle also has a beautiful blog, where she’s always cooking up something delicious. I am a huge fan of all her work and highly recommend both her blog and her book to everyone.
My absolute Favorite Recipes from Nom Nom Paleo
Alrighty, this was tough…I mean I had a hard time picking just a few! There are so many amazing recipes in this book that I just love! But I made myself pick my top 2 just to give you an idea of what’s in store for you here.
Fiona’s Green Chicken
Michelle gives full credit to her sister for this delicious one of a kind chicken recipe. I’ve made this for so many friends and loved ones. Not only does everyone love it, but they ask for it over and over again. The chicken marinates in a super flavorful green sauce that is full of bright herb flavors and is perfectly balanced with notes of sweetness and a touch of sour. It is without a doubt the star of this book. It’s my favorite summer recipe; cause that’s when I have a garden full of fresh herbs begging to be used for green chicken.
Are you looking for a delicious healthy breakfast item that moves out of the everyday oatmeal or scrambled eggs? Michelle’s Egg Foo Young is it! They’re basically savory egg pancakes with spinach and ham (or bacon….mmm bacon). When I make these I make a very big batch. You can store them in the fridge and they reheat beautifully in the toaster oven for a quick healthy breakfast midweek.
I’d recommend this to…
You do not need to be hardcore Paleo or even baby paleo to enjoy Nom Nom Paleo. It’s really for anyone who enjoys some healthy dishes that focus mainly on vegetables and meats. What I especially love is that I can trust that all the recipes are ‘clean eating’, meaning there’s no sugars, unnecessary ingredients, or preservatives.
