I used to work in an ice cream parlor.
It was one of those places with loads of great flavors and cut up candy bars to put on top.

This book looks wonderful. All the recipes are nutrient-dense, gluten-free, and use no refined sweeteners. There are 49 GAPS-legal recipes and 58 grain-free recipes, suitable for primal eating.
Sarah has experience with the GAPS diet and with modifying it afterwards to include some grains and beans. I love her story (included in the book) and love her approach to healing–thoughtful and realistic.
Nourished Cooking has over 60 nutrient-dense, gluten-free, and yummy (:)) recipes. It's perfect for those who eat whole foods, as well as those on grain-free diets such as GAPS, primal/paleo,and SCD.
So many of the recipes look wonderful, but some of the ones that really caught my eye are:
- Lemon Coconut Muffins
- Spring Rolls with Sesame Lime Sauce (I have a real thing for spring rolls)
- Pizza Toasts
- Fried Green Tomatoes (this is what I am going to do with any tomatoes that don't make it from our garden :)!)
In all, you get:
- 8 Breakfasts, including Lemon Coconut Muffins and Mushroom & Cheddar Crustless Quiche,

Beyond Grain and Dairy by Starlene Stewart
This wonderful book is a compilation of 113 delicious and special-diet-friendly recipes that look simply delish.
Her recipes are made with no gluten, grains, dairy, gums, corn, soy, or processed sugar. What's left you ask? Plenty!
I love this book and can't wait to make:
- Her hubby's Best Chili
- Her hubby's Chicken Soup that apparently tastes like it came out of a can–but of course, is MUCH better for you
- Polka-Dot Chocolate Cake
- Pumpkin Poppers (donut holes made with pumpkin! These look truly Ahmazing!)
- Loads of Frosting recipes
- Coconut Peanut Butter Balls
Tons of people find that their health issues are caused by gluten and/or dairy. In fact, we've moved our whole family to a gluten-free diet. And beyond that, many find that either reducing or eliminating grains from their diet makes great improvements in health as well.
There are also a number of diets (GAPS and SCD, for example) that are used either lifelong or for a period of time to allow the body's gut to heal. We are considering trying GAPS for my son and/or myself, in fact. The recipes in this book would be invaluable for folks on such diets.
Photos are included for every recipe (this means a TON to me–I love seeing what I am going to be making), and there is a clickable Table of Contents plus an Ingredients Index so you can easily find recipes that work for what you have in your pantry–regardless of how well-stocked or not you are :)!
