The Paleo Cookbook: 90 Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes The Whole Family Will Love By A Chattanooga Chef

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

The popular paleo diet, which calls for going without grains and dairy, doesn’t make it easy to keep a variety. However, the 90 unique recipes featured in Chattanoogan Anna Conrad’s The Paleo Cookbook: 90 Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes the Whole Family Will Love (Skyhorse Publishing, January 2014) make committing to the paleo lifestyle easy.

Her meal plans are designed to "keep your stomach happy and your waistline shrinking."

Her publicist said, "Beginners will love Ms. Conrad’s 28-day paleo challenge, which lays out a month of meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She mixes and matches recipes so you don’t have to worry about keeping things interesting; all you need to do is follow the simple instructions. A chef and caterer, Ms. Conrad’s 28-day challenges are popular among fitness groups, and her book allows novices to follow her suggestions in their own homes."

Some of the recipes include:

·        Pumpkin spice muffins

·        Lime coconut candy

·        Basil pesto chicken stir-fry

·        Grab-n-go egg muffins

·        Baked fish with asparagus and roasted beets

·        Stuffed portobellos

·        And many more

Ms. Conrad explains the basic mechanics of the hunter-gatherer diet; how to inventory your fridge; the truth about saturated fats; and other tips and tricks. Using the concept of green, yellow, and red light foods (foods that are always okay to eat; foods that should be consumed in moderation; and foods to avoid), she makes it easy for readers to create recipes of their own as well. Finally, a special section by Dustin Mohr discusses the best exercise regimens to help increase weight loss and supplement the diet.

Anna Conrad grew up cooking with her Hispanic mother and has enjoyed multicultural culinary influences from her French grandmother, her Italian mother-in-law, and her formal culinary training in Thailand. She founded her catering business, Chef Anna, in 2010 and Ideal Mealz, a service designed to help home cooks prepare healthy meals affordably and efficiently, in 2011. She lives in Chattanooga.

Charles Siskin: Out And About At Lucky's Burgers And Brew Atlanta

Let’s face it; I’m a push over for most animals excluding snakes. Especially snakes. Recently on a trip to Atlanta to spend some quality face time with my two youngest granddaughters, one a bona fide teen ager and the other on the cusp but acting like one, my wife suggested we head out to Lucky’s Burgers and Brew. She’d actually heard about it down here at the Beach from Diane Geyer ... (click for more)

Bobby Stone, Is It Really A Win? - And Response

It brought a smile to my face this morning when I saw where the case was thrown out of court against Mr. Stone and the domestic violence charge.  I have supported his cause from the beginning, but I do feel heartbreak because his personal life had to be tossed out there for all of us to see.   I truly hope and pray things turn around for him and his wife, while I feel ...

Roy Exum: Kelly Could Win It

I am neither a sleuth nor an odds maker but I’d say there is about a one-in-three chance that Interim Hamilton County Department of Education Superintendent Kirk Kelly could become the permanent superintendent of our public schools next Thursday. I am assured something squirrelly is happening on our newly-seated school board. It has been seven months since the last superintendent ... (click for more)
