Bestselling authors Jodi Bager and Jenny Lass met one day while on a trip to meet with the now-author Elaine Gottschall, creator of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and started talking recipes and food. They soon collaborated and found that their individual styles complimented each other perfectly, and the Everyday Grain-Free Gourmet Cookbook was born. Such a wonderful resource to have in one’s paleo kitchen.
Jodi says her style is simple and she’s a mom, and Janet is more scientific and a medical writer. They even like opposites. Jodi prefers family meals and recipes to serve her kids, while Jenny has a bit of a sweet tooth and loves ice cream—hence, the basis of a wonderful assortment to not only satisfy the palate, but an array to fill the many basic needs from breakfasts to dinners, desserts, and kitchen staples, all with a great homemade taste.
I use this book frequently and with just an occasional alteration on only a few recipes, all of them are paleo. Also, many of those on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) I find thrive on the Paleo diet. Interesting! Those on the SCD can benefit from the Paleo lifestyle, which is such a simple yet rewarding change to one’s life.
For anyone wanting to absorb the premise behind the SCD (of course besides the beans,the paleo diet), this is the book for any reader. You are presented with just what you need to grasp the concepts. I, for one, now understand Elaine’s original book as a result of Everyday Grain-Free Gourmet’s well-written explanations.
The recipes produce without a doubt top-of-the-line, high-quality foods. (Try the cashew butter cookies—with almond flour!) They are packed with nutrition thanks to Jodi’s interests and loaded with “yum” thanks to Jenny. Together they have created another soon-to-be-bestseller, Everyday Grain-Free.
