Book ~ "OMG That's Paleo?" (2013) Juli Bauer

From Goodreads ~ OMG That's Paleo? features 30 new recipes never seen before on author Juli Bauer's blog, as well as a selection of her best blog recipes.

Sections include poultry, beef, pork, fish/seafood, slow cooker, sweet and savory breakfasts, baked goods, 5-ingredient meals, side dishes, snacks and desserts; and each recipe features a color photo.

Juli also writes about the paleo diet in general and why it works for her, suggestions for keeping a kitchen well stocked, and recommended resources for further reading. And just like her blog, you can expect plenty of funny stories and awkward moments.

This is the second paleo recipe book I've come across in the last week or so.  Paleo is eating a diet that is similar to that of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, eating food that is as close to its nature state as possible.

The author begins by telling us what paleo and why she eats this way.  It is written in a very conversational manner.

There are 100 recipes with great pictures.  I am a fairly fussy eater and the recipes sound and look delicious!  Here's an example for Brazilian Curry Chicken ...

1.5-2 lbs chicken (whatever suits your fancy)
¾ cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons tomato paste
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon ground ginger
4-6 tablespoons curry powder
2 bell peppers (yellow and red), chopped into 1 cubes
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup chicken broth

  1. Grab your slow cooker
  2. Add in the coconut milk, tomato paste, garlic, ginger, curry powder, salt and pepper and whisk together.
  3. Add in peppers and onions.
  4. Next, add in chicken and pour broth over the chicken.
  5. Mix all ingredients together to completely cover the chicken in the curry mixture.
  6. Cover and cook at low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
  7. Then eat it in a cute Tupperware bowl. Or on a plate.  Whatever suits your fancy.

I know a couple of people that swear by Paleo - I'm not convinced, though.

I like that the ingredients are fresh and there is lots of protein.
