OMG That’s Paleo? Book Review & Recipe

Book reports were never my favorite thing to do in school.  But had I known I’d be reviewing incredible Paleo cookbooks when I was grown-up I’d probably have shown more interest.  This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you ”Pork Satay” from the cookbook “OMG That’s Paleo?”  Pork, coconut oil, nut butter, raw honey, this recipe calls for some of my favorite items from my pantry…  No wonder why it came out so delicious!!!!  But this isn’t the only delicious meal that’s in this Paleo cookbook, it’s got a huge selection of tasty meals, desserts, even bars to satisfy each and every one of you Paleo Peeps out there.  Listen to some of these recipes; “Chocolate Coffee Caramel Bars”, “Cherry Jam Crepe Stack”, “Blackberry Glazed Grilled Pork Chops”, “Apple and Bacon Rosemary Pork Burgers”, and “Pumpkin Cashew Coconut Curry over Coconut Rice”.  OMG That’s Paleo???  Yup, it certainly is!

Juli Bauer starts off thanking the people that assisted her, talking about Paleo and why, about her blog, about the book, and then gets into the nitty gritty with her recipes.  I really love her style of writing, it reminds me a little of myself to be honest… Straightforward, not uppity, kind of funny (or at least I think so!); it makes it easier to read if you want my not-so-professional opinion. 

So Rachel, Alessia and I started putting this meal together tonight, checking the book out, getting out our Paleo ingredients, and just having fun.  Luckily we have an arsenal of Julian Bakery ingredients that take recipes to another level, so why not upgrade, right?
