Cookbook Review: Ditch the Wheat by Carol Lovett (+ Exclusive Recipe!) // deliciousobsessions.com

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!

In this new cookbook, you will get:

  • An introduction to the why, what and how of paleo
  • Common paleo ingredients
  • Kitchen tools and equipment
  • Tips and tricks
  • Basic paleo information
  • Learn about fermented foods and drinks
  • And gobs of recipes from breakfast, lunch and dinner to starters, snacks and desserts!

With over 120 recipes, there’s definitely something for everyone in this book. All recipes use simple ingredients and techniques that will take the intimidation out of preparing allergy-free recipes from scratch and won’t break the bank.

Sample recipes include:

  • Chicken Enchilada Soup
  • Cilantro Maple Sriracha Chicken Wings
  • Buffalo Chicken Fingers
  • Ginger Beef Stir-Fry
  • Loaded Mashed Cauliflower with Bacon & Green Onions
  • Grain-Free Sandwich Bread
  • Salted Mexican Chocolate Clusters
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Cinnamon Buns
  • Dairy-Free Strawberry Swirl Ice Cream

I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Ditch the Wheat. Click here to learn more about Carol’s new book and how to order one for yourself or your loved ones.

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.
