Have you bought yours yet? If you haven't, there's still time to make your purchase.
If you've already bought your eBundle, I know there are a lot of eBooks to look through and I haven't even looked through half of the Healthy eBundle which I bought a couple of months ago! Speaking of the Healthy eBundle, I saw that Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS answered a question about how many books were similar in the two bundles. She said there was an overlap of just 7.
At any rate, I wanted to point out to you which eBooks I would recommend looking at sooner than later. 🙂
Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat by Melissa Joulwan from Clothes Make the Girl Value $15
I first learned about Melissa Joulwan's blog Clothes Make the Girl when one of my friends posted a link to her recipe for Pad Thai. I have never eaten Pad Thai, but it just looked delicious. I tweaked it just a bit and loved it so much I made it for dinner two nights in a row. I spent some time on Melissa's blog and found she used to be in roller derby and wrote a book called Rollergirl: Totally True Tales from the Track. I admire women that engage in rough and tumble sports like roller derby although I can't even stay upright on skates. LOL. I bought Rollergirl and found it fascinating. And I love Melissa's cookbook. Lots of GAPS legal recipes. I have just gone through the entire book and of the 75 recipes, I found only 7 that are not GAPS legal. I also have drool on my chin, thank you very much. There are a lot of Chinese food recipes in here like Egg Foo Yong and Chinese BBQ Pork and the aforementioned Pad Thai also makes an appearance. The book is stunning.
Lacto-Fermentation by Wardeh from GNOWFGLINS. Value $20
Wardeh is one of the kindest bloggers I know. You can just feel that coming through in her posts and words. This eBook is a companion book to the online courses provided by Wardeh when you are a member, but here's the good news. You do not need to be a member in order to get full benefit from this book. Wardeh says, “There’s something to be said for watching someone demonstrate a technique, and you’re always welcome to become a member of our online classes. But, the bottom line is: yes, you can use this book on its own.” This book contains information on how to ferment nearly everything with 23 lessons, a suggested schedule, information on cultures and supplies at a discount, and the what, why and how of each topic.
Have you been looking for more ways to get coconut oil
into your diet? Jennifer shares 68 recipes in this eBook for adding coconut oil into the foods you eat. If you are doing GAPS, 30 of the 68 recipes are already GAPS legal as written. Several others are easily altered to be GAPS legal. So far I've tried the Baba Ganoush – I've never had this before. Jennifer's rendition was so yummy I was eating it with a spoon!
Okay, this eCookbook as written has 23 GAPS legal recipes (out of 70 total) due to a couple of illegal ingredients. I have been chatting with Carol by email and I am planning to do a review on her book and I can get into more details at that time about which recipes are easily converted. The most important thing is these desserts are already grain-free, so that is huge. The illegal ingredients are arrowroot powder, cream of tartar, coconut palm sugar and maple syrup. The maple syrup can be subbed for honey
, and for some of the recipes it may be possible to simply omit the illegal ingredient. For example, Carol says the meringues would likely do well without the cream of tartar. The raspberry jam calls for arrowroot powder and I know for a fact it's easy peasy to thicken jam by simply cooking a bit longer to reduce the liquids. Here is a photo – I've indicated of these which are GAPS legal with an asterisk (*) and which are easily adapted with the hash sign (#). These are gorgeous and look so delicious!
Toadally Primal Smoothies by Todd Dosenberry from Primal Toad Value $10
This eBook has a ton of smoothies in it, although I did see that some have whey and protein powder there are dozens that do not. At any rate, if you are looking for ideas for smoothies, this is a huge collection (over 150). Every smoothie has a photo, and there is nutritional information on each one as well.
Oh, of course I have to mention my own eCookbook, Beyond Grain & Dairy. Every recipe is GAPS legal, and there are color photos for every recipe. I really enjoyed putting this book together and I am really enjoying having my recipes printed out for easy access. I just printed mine on my laser printer (black and white), used the three hole punch and put the pages into a binder. If I get enough interest, I will consider a paperback version. So far my mom and my boss have requested a paper copy but we'll probably just do the notebook deal for their copies. The other thing I wanted to point out is that if you have a Kindle, my book looks great on Kindle (even though it is not proper Kindle format). Just email the PDF to your Kindle (feel free to ask me if you don't know how to do that).
Paleo Ice Cream by Ben Hirshberg from BenHirshberg.com Value $10
Last but not least, this book on making your own homemade ice cream. 24 as written are GAPS legal. Some flavors that caught my eye: Banana Almond Butter
, Papaya, Pumpkin
Pie, Watermelon, Avocado, Banana Walnut and of course, Classic Chocolate.
