I like quick, easy, nutritious meals, However, I have had a hard time finding just the right recipes that fulfill my 30 minute time frame that I allow to prepare dinner.
Luckily, I am part of the Paleo/Whole 30 blogosphere and have some pretty bad- ass webby friends that are up to some cool shit, and yes, that was 2 curse words in one.
Recently I stumbled upon a great book that was released at just the right time in my journey towards learning to cook, uniquely titled, Weeknight Paleo by Amber Beam.
Below is a little snippet about the book:
Inspired by her love of real food and knack for short-cuts, Amber Beam, the face behind the Paleo Savvy blog, has created a foolproof way for cooks following a Paleo diet to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less. In her book, Week-night Paleo Amber gives readers the confidence and know-how to get fast and flavorful meals on the table in a hurry using several smart cook-ing practices, like batch cooking and using dou-ble-duty ingredients. Each of the nine weeks of satisfying din-ners includes a meal plan, a make ahead schedule, a shopping list, and recipes so readers can rest assured meal planning for the next 2 months is done.
Why I like this cookbook:
- The book caters to the Paleolithic/ Whole 30 Lifestyle.
- I have no patience for meals that take forever. I would rather be out with friends.
- The pictures are amazing. I am not going to try making something if it looks nasty, sorry, outdated cookbooks with no visuals.
- I love that this book has a grocery shopping list. It makes it fool- proof.
- 9 weeks of meals: offers a ton of variety so you can pick and choose the meals that YOU want to try.
- Melissa Joulwan wrote a forward for the book (author of Well Fed)
- Any recipes with avocado or sweet potato has got to be good.
- 30 minutes is do-able for anyone.
