For those of you who have liked my Facebook page, you may have noticed a lot of posts relating to paleo. This is something that I have been looking into as a way to stave off autoimmune disease and help with my eczema. While in college, living paleo isn’t exactly an option. There are, what, two types of meat, 4-5 types of vegetables, and 3 types of fruit? However, I have been reading a lot, doing a lot of research, and finding books and recipes that look good. I would be doing the autoimmune protocol (this book has information, meal plans, and shopping lists for the AIP, so I have enjoyed reading that), which requires even more research.
To get a feel for what this may be like, when I visit home I have been trying to make at least one paleo, if not AIP, recipe. For example, two nights ago I made up some salmon with spaghetti squash. While a little light for what I wanted that night (steak and sweet potatoes would have been better!), it was still quite good.
Two cookbooks that I have been looking through and trying out are by Jill of Real Food Forager. She has one on grain-free baking and one filled with paleo soup recipes. Last weekend I made her chocolate pecan cookies. They were delicious and actually look like the ones in the picture (except my picture is awful):
Look good, right? Check out these other super yummy looking breads and desserts in the book:
Of course, we can’t all live on desserts. And with no nuts on an autoimmune protocol, many desserts are out for me. Luckily, Jill’s book of paleo soup recipes, Beyond Broth, is filled with easy, simple soup recipes that are healthy and nourishing. They are very good on their own, and also are easily adapted to the individual’s tastes.
Both of these books are on sale, but what’s really cool, this that Jill is also offering a class on grain-free cooking for people like me who have no idea what they are doing. This class, called “Go Grain Free,” will feature 12 lessons of kitchen basics and how to cook with various ingredients. It’s a great resource for those of us who may not be the most gifted, and want to use good quality foods without ruining them.
I graduated high school without being able to make much more than pasta and pancakes. In other words, I’m looking forward to these lessons.
Class and Book Bundle
And here’s the even better than delicious baked goods, soups, and cooking classes part: Go Grain Free costs $199. The class combined with the two books costs $239. But for a limited time, you can get all three of these for only $135 – a savings of over 40%!
You get lifetime access to:
- 12 lessons (80 video tutorials) and over 150 recipes

Pretty sweet deal, right?
