Paleo Chef And Author Anna Conrad Named New York Times Best Selling Author

Monday, August 11, 2014

The New York Times on Sunday listed The Paleo Cookbook, authored by Anna Conrad, on the Advice, How To and Miscellaneous Best Selling Books list.  In The Paleo Cookbook, 90 Grain-Free and Dairy-Free Recipes the Whole Family will Love, 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.

Of the recent Best Seller Listing, Ms. Conrad said, “I’m elated the book is gaining a following making the paleo lifestyle accessible to a wide range of people. It’s my sincere hope that many more people will read the book and gain a modern view of our ancestral culinary heritage.”

When Ms. Conrad first tried the paleo lifestyle, she lost eight pounds in two weeks without feeling hungry, and her blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol all stayed within healthy limits. A personal chef and caterer, she provides paleo menus as part of her services to her clients. 

Ms. Conrad’s 28-day paleo challenge lays out a month of meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She mixes and matches recipes so participants don’t have to worry about keeping things interesting. Ms. Conrad’s 28-day challenges are popular among fitness groups, and her book enables novices to follow her suggestions for their families and friends.

Ms. Conrad grew up cooking with her Hispanic mother and has enjoyed multicultural culinary influences from her French grandmother, her Italian mother-in-law, as well as, 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.
