I LOVE this NEW cookbook by my friend Carol Lovett over at Ditch the Wheat. Not only are the pictures beautiful (and mouth-watering) and the recipes are delicious, but it includes gobs of information about being paleo. Perfect for the beginner and seasoned cook alike!

Ditch the Wheat: 120 Paleo Recipes for a Gluten-Free Lifestyle (Thanks for sending me a copy, Carol!) goes beyond the average cookbook. It is packed with useful step-by-step tutorials that will help you in navigating your grain-free kitchen and teach you how to make food from scratch using the finest quality and nourishing ingredients.

Having battled with her own health problems, Carol found relief through eating a grain-free diet and steering clear of many other foods with inflammatory properties, such as dairy, legumes, and highly-processed foods – the catch, she didn’t want to sacrifice any of her favorite dishes. Carol creatively adapted everyday meals such as pizza, pasta, doughnuts and cake, yes cake, to her grain-free life and now is sharing her best kept secrets!

Sweet Potato Nacho Dip {Exclusive Recipe}

Now let’s get to the good stuff! This Sweet Potato Nacho Dip is a perfect alternative for those who don’t digest dairy very well. The pureed sweet potato is amazingly creamy and dippable. I assure you, it does not taste like mashed sweet potatoes; it tastes like an addictive nacho-flavored dip that I can’t stop scooping with cassava chips.
