I am super excited to announce that my new recipe book Upgraded Paleo for Food Lovers is now available!
As a Paleo coach who is passionate about food and empowering others to thrive through diet, I am very happy to be able to share my favourite recipes with you.
I’ll be honest, through my own journey to change my diet I found it tricky to find recipes that I loved. I was craving creative dishes that looked and tasted amazing. I was also looking for ways to get maximum vegetables and healthy fats into my day, and wanting recipes that were abundant in these, as opposed to being all about the meat. This prompted me to start creating my own recipes, based on the Paleo template and optimised in various ways designed to help my body and brain thrive.
Perhaps like me you are already eating the real food Paleo way and looking for some inspiration, new creative recipes, or to optimise your Paleo diet. Or maybe you are someone who simply wants to upgrade their existing diet. Either way, if you like me love food, then this book is for you.
Inside you will find 100 delicious recipes, each with an accurate ingredients list, clear instructions and a colour photograph (because lets face it, it’s just not quite the same when a recipe doesn’t have one). You will also find guidance on equipping your kitchen and getting the most out of the recipes, which are optimised in the following ways:
Vegetables galore: I have made vegetables the star of the show, packing in as many as possible.
Quality sources of animal protein: not all fish and meat is created equal. Upgraded Paleo recipes use wild fish and seafood, and grass fed, antibiotic and hormone free meat.
Plenty of healthy fats: to fill you up, aid nutrient absorption and fuel your body and brain.
Low in lectins, phytates and nightshades: Paleo food on the whole is relatively low in lectins and phytates, however I have made every effort to minimimise these in the recipes. All but a few of the recipes are nightshade free, or have options to be.
Low in sugar: sugar is sugar, even if natural. All of the recipes in this book are either sugar free, or very low in (natural) sugar.
Optimal cooking methods: gentle cooking at lower temperatures, using fats with a higher smoke point and non – toxic cookware ensures that foods retain their goodness and toxicity is minimised.
Fun, colourful and creative: because Paleo food can be just that.
I hope you enjoy eating these dishes as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them
