EAT BEAUTIFUL: Grain-free, Sugar-free and Loving It is a cookbook for feasting, even while on a healing or refined-sugar-free diet. With GAPS, Paleo, AIP, Anti-candida and Weston A. Price diets as inspiration, this cookbook is about enjoying the beauty of whole foods, not feeling deprived. After all, local fruit grown in season, fair trade cocoa, raw honey, pure maple syrup, sprouted nuts~ these are beautiful foods! Serving up a new grain-free baking technique as well as encouragement, Megan loves baked goods and other treats that round out the healing qualities of bone broth soup and fermented foods. This cookbook is also for any cook who'd like healthier versions of classic baked goods-- maple syrup chocolate ganache, honey-sweetened ice cream, stevia-sweetened waffles (that don't taste like stevia) and more. Enjoy: feasting and healthy whole foods go together!
One of the things that I have more and more trouble with is providing foods that all of my friends can eat. I have many who are not able to eat gluten and others who can't have sugar. I also have many who are vegetarians & even some vegans. So I would usually bring along a huge bowl of vegetables or fruit to various functions.
With this cookbook, I can bring many more items. There are so many great recipes that opened me up to a whole wide world of healthier eating. And they all tasted really great. Well, at least the ones I have tried. I haven't made them all yet.
Seriously though. Homemade carrot cinnamon yougurt!! Need I say more? It was scrumptious!
The slow-cooked pork cobbler may not be vegan or vegetarian, but it was to die for! And now I know another way to prepare rutabagas. I had only known 1 way which is the way my family has made it for as long as I can remember. They were chopped up and put in the pork cobbler. Ooohhh!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
So if you have dietary restrictions or have friends that do (or even if you just want to eat a little healthier) then you must get this cookbook!
