Paleo Coconut Cinnamon Cereal.
Does paleo cereal even exist?
Yes, yes it does and I am here today to show you how to make it, thanks to the brand new Paleo Eats cookbook!
If there has been one book that I have been the most excited about this year, it has been Paleo Eats.
You see, it was written by one of my dearest friends, Kelly Bejelly of the A Girl Worth Saving website. Kelly and I have been friends for awhile now and I have seen her develop this masterpiece from concept to completion.
And it is AMAZING.
Thank you, Kelly, for sending me a copy to review! <3
Why You Need Paleo Eats
Transitioning to a Paleo-friendly diet can be intimidating. You may wind up buying new
ingredients that you have never even heard of before, let alone used– some of which can be pretty darn expensive.
Enter Kelly's new amazing cookbook, Paleo Eats: 111 Comforting Gluten-Free, Grain-Free and Dairy-Free Recipes for the Foodie in You.
Paleo Eats is way more than your average paleo cookbook! Kelly knows firsthand how tough going Paleo can seem at first, especially when bringing your family along.
To help you navigate these waters and smoothly transition your family to this diet, Kelly has included a few special sections in Paleo Eats, including how to:
- Go Paleo without breaking the bank
- Find the freshest, “cleanest” veggies
- Work with new-to-you Paleo ingredients
- Rescue a culinary disaster
- Stock your Paleo pantry
- Recreate your own family-favorite recipes
Kelly takes the scary out of this healthy, delicious eating plan to give you confidence in your kitchen again.
Only 6 short months after starting the paleo diet , Kelly knew she would eat this way for life. Her health issues were under control for the first time ever, but she found that after awhile, she got bored with all the usual paleo fare.
She was missing some of her favorite comfort foods. Foods from her childhood that were no longer allowed on the paleo diet. So in her usual fashion, she rolled up her sleeves and re-created some of her favorite foods, Paleo-style (including the amazing paleo coconut cinnamon cereal recipe below).
And now, you get to reap the benefits of her time in the kitchen.
She has done all of the hard work for you so that you don’t have to try to figure out how to eat a wide variety of mouth-watering, nourishing Paleo meals. Paleo no longer means “boring!”
