Description



Book Synopsis



An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from some form of autoimmune disease. If you're among them, you may know all too well how little modern medicine can do to alleviate your condition. But that's no reason to give up hope. In this companion cookbook to the groundbreaking book The Paleo Approach, Sarah D. Ballantyne, PhD, shows you just how easy and delicious regaining your health can be. The Paleo Approach Cookbook walks you through which foods you should eat to calm your immune system, reduce inflammation, and help your body heal itself. There's no need to worry that "going Paleo" will break the bank or require too much time in the kitchen preparing special foods. In The Paleo Approach Cookbook, Dr. Ballantyne provides expert tips on how to make the switch easily and economically. She explains how to stay within your food budget, how to make the best use of your time in the kitchen, and where to shop for what you need. Complete food lists, shopping guides, and meal plans take the guesswork out of eating to maximize healing. Don't know how to cook? Dr. Ballantyne walks you through essential kitchen techniques, from chopping vegetables to using a pressure cooker safely. Armed with more than 200 delicious recipes, from breakfast staples to decadent desserts, you can reverse your disease and love every bite!



About the Author



Sarah Ballantyne, PhD, earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics at the age of 26. She spent the next four years doing research on innate immunity and inflammation before becoming a stay-at-home mom. After her second daughter was born, she began to experiment with the Paleo lifestyle. It had an amazing effect on her health. Over time, she healed herself of a long laundry list of physical complaints including irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, and the autoimmune disorder Lichen Planus, an inflammatory skin condition. Inspired by her success, Dr. Ballantyne created the popular health blog www.ThePaleoMom.com and became co-host of a top-rated podcast, The Paleo View. Her passion for providing straightforward explanations of the science behind her diet and lifestyle recommendations for managing autoimmune disease, plus her love of food and cooking as well as her conviction that healing your body does not have to come at the expense of enjoying food, form the foundations of The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook.

I've been waiting to write a review on The Paleo Approach Cookbook until I'd really used it. By that, I don't mean just made a few recipes, or even a lot of recipes. I mean, USED all of it and fully understood and felt the awesomeness of this book, even beyond the deliciousness it contains. Beyond? Yeah that's right, beyond. This book offers so much way, way, way beyond a cookbook. It's still difficult to fully grasp what a gem this book is and how it's going to change my life! You might think that's a high expectation or dream for a cookbook. Well it is a very high expectation and this book far exceeds that expectation and exceeds even what I could possibly dream of. Eating the way both The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach cookbook outlines has changed my life, and possibly saved my life. I can say the same for family members and friends of mine. I have a brutal autoimmune disease, and eating this way has given me a quality of life and remission I didn't know was possible. So, back to the book! Should you buy it? YES! Should you buy it because you have an autoimmune disease? YES! It's not even a question you should be asking yourself unless you have no desire at all to feel well again, and heal your body. Should you buy this book if you don't have an autoimmune disease? YES! The recipes are delicious and you'll love them, and as a nice little bonus you'll feel great. Also, there's definitely someone in your life with an autoimmune disease you can cook for, and introduce this book and it's predecessor to, and help them heal. What's so great? Here's my take: RECIPES: Well duh. That's why we all buy a cookbook, the recipes. I've made many of them and none have disappointed at all. In fact the were outstanding! My husband, who is as meat and potatoes and has no desire to try anything new as they come, also loved them! That's no small miracle. For those people fussing over the inclusion of recipes that have organ meat I ask you if you've actually tried just one recipe? How can you judge without actually trying them? If you are too squeamish to try, and I do get that, the percentage of recipes that have organ meat is so small, it would be silly to qualify that as a reason to not buy the book for the incredible amount of other recipes AND the huge volume of other information it includes. THE BASICS: The Paleo Approach is the book you really want to get if you fully want to understand the why's of foods and their correlation to autoimmune disease and healing. The cookbook does indeed include the basics of eating paleo, and if that's all you really want or can store in your brain, then you get that in the cookbook too. It's laid out beautifully with charts, pictures and easy checklists. It's very, very handy! I've come across foods that I'd like to try but are less common and have wondered if they are ok for me, and the charts have included such a huge variety of what's out there to try. So for those people who think the autoimmune protocol is very limiting, check out the very long lists of what we CAN eat! There's also a nice simple page of what to avoid. Great information on food quality and variety and why it matters, how to source foods and what to do if you can't find them, how to eat on a budget, and even a list in order or priority for what meats and produce are good/better/best. I found that really handy! FODMAP: What? Now I'm exceptionally happy about this part because in addition to the autoimmune protocol, I've discovered I also feel much better following a low-fodmap diet. Don't know what that is? Get the book. :) This is something that I would have dreamed about having included in this cookbook, but didn't know it would be! I thought that would be too much to hope for. This makes my life SO MUCH easier! There's a great list, and every single recipe has a FODMAP warning included!! There are substitutions if possible or just a straight up “don't eat this”. Excellent. I love this!! PANTRY/KITCHEN TIPS: There is an excellent chapter on what to include in your pantry. For so many people starting out on this journey, they look in their pantry and all they see is everything they can no longer include, which leaves the pantry empty. Having this included in the book is awesome! Fill your pantry up and get cooking! You won't have that “ugh I don't have that” moment when you want to start cooking. She even included how to store foods, a glossary of cooking terms (mind blown) which is so great for beginners in the kitchen. Again, she thought of everyone and everything! The cooking tools is also great. You can literally be the most beginner cook/chef and have everything you need to learn to get started. I think it would also save time and money for those that have a tendency to randomly buy utensils and find later you actually didn't need that really pretty doodad. TIME MANAGEMENT: Many people have criticized the time it takes to cook these recipes, or cooking in general. The beauty is that if you learn how to plan well, it really doesn't take long. Sarah also included these tips! Batch cooking is everything! Stock your pantry, get the tools, plan, batch cook, use leftover, learn to store and DONE! It's really there from A-Z. Take the time to read the beginning chapters as it's worth the read to really get the most from the book. GUIDES: I love that Sarah includes useful guides for cooking temps. Now when I say guides, in true Sarah fashion, she's gone above and beyond. There isn't just standard beef, chicken, pork etc. Nope. She included all the cuts of meat, the size of the portion, cooking method, time and temperature. A whole page on grilling! She also included measurement conversions which is really handy! No more Googling needed. I really love the list of cooking fats and oil and the smoke point. Again, this is something I used to need to google. SUBSTITUTIONS: So many people say things like “what do you eat instead of bread” or perhaps insert snacks, sandwich wraps, grains, spices etc. Yup, she did that too. MEAL PLANS: Hello?!!! These are amazing! So great!! The hard work of planning is just DONE! And again, in true Sarah fashion, she included meal plans for low FODMAP folks, like me. I think she actually wrote this book for me. I was NOT expecting this chapter, but oh so sweet! And there are also tear out guides for you! RECIPES: Ya ok, you thought I'd already done this highlight, and I did, but I just want to point out it's at this point in the book the recipes start. By this time you've been given a TON of information that is not given in most cookbooks. It's really mind blowing. Buy the book already. NUTRITIONAL INFO: So ya, some books are going to include calories, and the basic fat, protein, carbs and sugar. Maybe sodium. If you haven't figured it out yet, Sarah does it all, everything you could possibly hope for and more. Her attention to detail blows my mind. The nutiritonal information given for the recipes is not just the basics but every single dang vitamin, mineral, amino acid you could possibly think of. I just got some blood tests that said I'm low in sodium, iodine, and potassium. Hmmm, I ask myself. What do I need to include in my diet now to resolve this? Not only can I look at each recipe and see what the profile of it is, she ALSO has a reference in the back! Again, mind blown. I don't need to go through each recipe to see what has the higher amounts I need, she has the list of recipes included. So handy. Really Sarah? How do you think of this?! MINI's: So many of the recipes include variations that are actually like another recipe! The volume of recipes blows my mind. This includes spice blends! READING LABELS: I thought I could read labels like a rock star already. Apparently not. She has an incredible resource to spot gluten, corn, soy, dairy and sugar. Some of this you may know already, like I thought I did. What I didn't know is possible sources of contamination, cross reactors, foods derived from corn (huge huge list I had no idea). And again, tear out guides?!! YES/NO/MAY: Aside from the recipes this could be my favourite section. You want to know if a food is safe for you? Huge alphabetical list. Find it, and your good to go. Easy peasy. You think you already know them all? You're wrong. Huge, HUGE list. Get the book. INDEX: Seems basic. Nope. If you haven't figured it out by now, Sarah goes above and beyond in everything! The index starts with little squares of gorgeous photos of the recipes! It's quite a pretty sight to behold! And THEN is the usual text index, which still isn't basic. I wouldn't think to look in the recipe index for “wok” cause that's not a recipe, but there it is anyway! SHOPPING LIST: Ya that's done for you too. The meal plans come with the shopping lists AND they have tear out guides. Of course. DOWNLOADS: If you go to Sarah's website she has now made downloads, for free, that have increased the value even more. So may pages you'll think that you wish you could take with you when your shopping, and then she does a tear out guide. Maybe you think they are too pretty to scrunch up and put in the bottom of your purse (they are actually very pretty). Well, boom, download and print. Print as many as you need. The BEST download of all, and it's brilliant really, it the easy “quick and easy meals” download. Maybe you don't have time to go through and figure out which recipes you can make in less than 30 minutes. Now you have a list. Seriously? Do the bonuses ever stop? This was a long review. I'll keep my summary short. Get the book. Get more for your friends who want yummy food, get more for your friends with autoimmune, and get a few more if you have autoimmune and want your friends and family to be able to cook for you!

I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone that has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I've made a recipe just about every day since it arrived; I already follow the autoimmune protocol and consider myself "in my element" in the kitchen, but I love trying new recipes. While I'm no novice with liver, kidneys, heart, or tongue; I do enjoy branching out and trying new things; so I bought tripe and trotters! Yes, Sarah is backing up my opinion that offal ain't awful! I love that she breaks down the nutrients quite specifically, offers thorough notes on FODMAP modifications, and gives a fantastic meal plan to help those that are just starting their healing journey or for those of us that could use a little inspiration. ~ Erin at Enjoying this Journey

An Autoimmune Foodie's Guide to Good Livin'

I consider myself to be somewhat of a foodie. As an avid cook, I am not one to use cookbooks, but now that I am not eating like I used to, having a resource of over 200 recipes that I know are within my guidelines is priceless. It has been hard to give up so many of the foods I love, but the Paleo Approach Cookbook has helped me realize there is a whole other world of food to be discovered. Knowing I needed to do the autoimmune protocol was very daunting. The amazing recipes in this book have made it possible for me to not cheat and stick with the program, which builds confidence and motivation to keep going. As you may know snacking on the AIP diet can be hard, the plantain crackers are amazing and don't require a dehydrator to make. I love treats and the Carob Ganache Mini Tort was a hit when having guests for dinner. Paired with the raspberries, is was just the right combination of sweet with no added sweeteners, and deep rich flavor. My favorite so far is the Sweet and Sour Beef Heart Jerky. My awesome butcher sliced the meat for me on the deli slicer. While it can be challenging to get offal into the diet this was a yummy way to add those super nutrients and have a great snack. Next up, the pancakes with the super protein packed cricket flour. What? Yep, insects. Gotta love this adventurous Dr. Ballantyne! I have wanted to improve my health and change my lifestyle habits for the last few years and kind of had an idea of what to do but was lacking motivation. I was experiencing a range of symptoms including joint/muscle pain, extreme fatigue, chronic infections, hair loss, digestive upset, skin rashes/hives, and weight gain. My doctor couldn't offer me any real support. I wasn't sure exactly what I should be eating, but I knew I needed to change my diet for good. Well, it's working! Overall health and energy has greatly improved and it has been less than 30 days so far. I am so thankful for this cookbook and all the great ideas.

I've never had a cookbook that gave you so much nutritional detail as Sarah's. I love all the recipes she has for offal. As a child, we use to eat much more of that in my house but as I grew older, that seemed to fall out of favor. Her hidden liver meatloaf is one of my favorites. It's tasty and nutritious and you'd never guess there was liver in it. She has also introduced me to all the ways you can use plantains. I never realized what a versatile fruit this is.

I've been going through The Paleo Approach Cookbook since it arrived. I pre-ordered it as soon as I bought the first book, The Paleo Approach. I have been very excited to get it after reading the first book. I wanted a cookbook that would give me some ideas since this way of cooking is new and different. It certainly does give lots of ideas. I love to cook, and I love food! So, I knew that I would have to make recipes that are both delicious and nutritious. It's nice to know I can. Also, if you are creative with your cooking like me, you will find that you don't always have to rely on these recipes, but you can alter them as you like as long as you are staying within the bounds of the paleo approach recommendations. So, it's kind of been like a whole new adventure cooking with new and different things and learning how it will turn out. I'll admit that like another reader, I've not been brave enough to seek out cricket flour or make it, but as Sarah says, you don't have to make everything if you don't like it. I still have some searching to do to find sources for things like lard, or unrendered pastured pork fat so I can make it. I have found some pastured lard online, but I want to see if I can't find some that I can render myself through our farmer's market or perhaps online. Also, I'll say that the staples, shopping lists, snacks etc from this book are really nice to have. I look at a lot of recipes online, but having a real book with pictures and lots of info and detail at my fingertips really suits me. I can't wait to make some more recipes from this book. I've already made three of them, and was pleasantly surprised with the results.

If you're just beginning the Paleo diet, this book is the perfect way to start becoming more confident - and a bit more adventurous - in your cooking. I'm actually on my way to the market to buy various internal organs - which I never thought I'd do. That said, I didn't rate this book with 5 stars, because it managed to get me excited about eating cow heart - although that's definitely noteworthy. It's actually the smaller elements that made it successful. I do want to point out, however, that I'm reading the ebook version. I'll admit that some of the formatting is a bit wonky, and it's also a really lengthy book. I can see how it could get a bit cumbersome if you have a printed version. In the ebook format, everything is hyperlinked, so it's probably a lot easier to navigate and to find what you're looking for. The book in general is like your one-stop shop for paleo cooking. Every recipe includes nutrition facts, substitution methods and helpful tips & tricks for ensuring success. There are even meal plans, shopping lists and guides for how best to utilize your local farmers' markets, grocery stores, butchers and everything in between. You'll also learn a lot about how your body processes nutrients, how to properly store produce, and how to "trick" your kids into eating liver. If you're looking for a book that will teach you not only how to cook, but how to cook in a way that's exciting, nutritious and new, pick this up. And don't be surprised if your family starts getting jazzed about cricket flour pancakes and deep fried fish heads. Unorthodox? Maybe. But if those are just a bit too daring at first, you can always start with a more traditional dish like succulent honey-garlic slow roasted pork shoulder. Read it, and eat.

I have been anticipating this book for a while and I am so excited to have received it! The Paleo approach cookbook is awesome. I love Part 1: The Basics that goes over everything from what to eat or avoid, several guides and charts for how to cook meat, choose produce, etc. The meal plans and shopping lists are so helpful. The book is very well organized with incredibly vibrant and illustrative pictures and tips. I can't wait to get cooking!

This cookbook is an encyclopedia of information about how to eat on the autoimmune diet. It has beautiful pictures on every page in full color. Each recipe has clear instructions and ways to adapt it if need be. There are many pages explaining some of the ingredients for special treats using the specialty flours and oils and how to interchange. In the back of the book are several l pages detailing how to read labels that might be hiding gluten, soy dairy and corn which are foods I have to watch out for. I also like that Sarah has a FODMAP explanation and lists of substitutions that would work to make that recipe FODMAP compatible. This is all aside from all the wonderful recipes that would expect

The meal plans with shopping lists and suggestions on prep-ahead are wonderful time savers. I adore the recipe index with thumbnails of all the food. The recipes are clear and tempting. I recommend this for every kitchen!
