Giveaway: Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry

paleo cooking from elana's pantry

8/19/13: This giveaway ended at 6m MDT.

Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, my third cookbook, was released in June, and on July 7th hit the New York Times bestseller list.

The last couple of months have been filled with amazing reviews and numerous appearances. It’s been a whirlwind, and I’ve been enjoying every second. Soon I’ll be speaking at BookMarks, a huge one day book festival in Winston-Salem, NC that draws over 8,000 visitors. Please drop by and say hi if you’re in the area.

Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry has nearly 100 quick and easy Paleo recipes with everything from Flourless Brownies to kelp based Sesame Noodles, and it is available on amazon.com and barnes & noble.com as well as independent bookstores across the country.

Another feature of Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry that I’d like to share is that it is AIP friendly. What is AIP? The Auto-Immune Protocol. The book is completely free of nightshades (tomato, eggplant, bell pepper, etc.) and well as spices that contain nightshades (chili, chipotle, paprika, etc.). More than 60 of the nearly 100 recipes are nut-free, and 60 recipes are egg-free as well.

The reviews have been outstanding, reiterating my goal to serve up easy-to-make Paleo dishes with simple ingredients and minimal fuss. Numerous recipes in Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry have six ingredients or less.

To celebrate my impending trip to North Carolina for Bookmarks, I’m giving away a copy of Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry today. To be entered leave a comment below letting me know what you most enjoy about my recipes. The winner will be selected at random on August 19th at 6pm MDT.

  19. Aubrey

    Your recipes are fantastic thanks so much!!

  20. Samara Schreiner @ mysocalledstyle.blogspot.com

    Count me in, PLEASE. I think my favorite thing about your recipes is how you manage to take so many traditional Jewish foods and make them healthy yet still incredibly delicious. Because of your site, I’ve managed to convince my oh-so-stubborn mother that there IS such a thing as a delicious pareve dessert.

  21. Sheri

    I would LOVE this book! I was just diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and am entering my 2nd week of this really strict diet. I feel as though there are very limited options of what I can eat now, so this would be fabulous to help me adjust to a new way of cooking and eating and get back to health!

  22. Cheryl

    I love that your recipes are not only paleo, but allergy friendly and made from simple ingredients! Excited about this book!

  23. Darja Janovica-Marcenko

    What I enjoy the most about your recipes is that with a few simple ingredients you achieve an exquisite dish that tastes better than the ‘real’ thing!

  24. Audrey

    Love that your recipes are always nutritious and taste delicious!

  25. This has been on my list for too long.

  26. Danielle C

    I love that your recipes are so time and family friendly.

  27. KimberlyB

    The thing I love the most about your recipes is how accessible they are to those of us who are not great at cooking! Your recipes make me feel like a master chef!

  28. raj

    Your recipes make it easy to be on a restricted diet without forgoing on taste. Because of this i look forward to any new recipes you create.

  29. And I’ll put September 7th on my calendar Winston – Salem isn’t too far.

  30. Hallie Doyle

    I would LOVE to win this! Thanks!

  31. Katherine

    I love the variety of your recipes and the passion you have for cooking that shows throughout each new creation!!

    I enjoy the simplicity of your recipes and how tasty they are. This was helpful when I first started paleo eating.

  33. Hallie Doyle

    I love that your recipes are LOVED by my 10 year old boys (and husband)!

  34. Kimberly H.

    I love your recipes for SO many reasons: they are quick and easy to prepare, I generally keep the ingredients on hand (we have multiple food allergies/intolerances), they are DELICIOUS, and they don’t make me or my family feel sick after eating them!! It’s a win-win-win-win! Thank you so much for all you do, Elana!

  35. Stephanie

    Variety, though I love the baked goods it isn’t what I eat most. I like foods for every part of the day.

  36. Liz Mitchell

    My most favorite thing about all of your recipes is the variety among all the recipes and the interesting spin you take on sweets, while still making them gluten free and healthy!

  37. That’s easy! What I love most about your recipes??? DELICIOUS! : )

  38. renee

    I’d love this cookbook.

  39. Clara

    I appreciate that you pick ingredients that are in the sweet spot in between chain groceries and high end health food stores. It’s nice to have decent, nutritional recipes with ingredients you can actually acquire. I love it especially because I’m sure you’ve so many crazy cool ingredients you like to try.

  40. Becky Day

    I love that your recipes are so easy and so tasty! So many favorites!

  41. Tina

    I love that your recipes are yummy! Oh, and that I can eat them without discomfort because they are allergy friendly :0) Oh, and they are easy to make, appeal to my child (and hubby), and so on.

  42. Pey-Jing Mehrinfar @ limehrinfar.com

    I love your recipes because they are actually delicious!!!

  43. Tammi Shamblin

    I love that I don’t feel sick! Your recipes are always a hit with non-gluten intolerant friends too.

  44. Regina

    I love the fact that your recipes are made with real food. They’re easy and delicious. My favourite is the chocolate cake in the Gluten-free Almond Flour cookbook. I’d love to win your cookbook.

  45. Irene

    Your recipes have allowed me to enjoy “bread” from time to time since starting paleo!! Your paleo bread is a staple in my paleo recipe box. I hope to enjoy your recipes in this new book!

  46. Katie Kobelinski


    I am pretty new to your site, but have enjoyed so many of your recipes already! My favorite is the flax bread, and my husband loves the bran muffins. He asks for them every week! And this is coming from a doughnut loving kind of man. Pretty awesome, I think!

    Thanks for all your recipes.

    Katie K

  47. Nellie

    My favorite thing about your recipes is that you use healthy sweetners and are gluten free.

  48. Heather Martin

    I’d love to win a copy!

  49. Nancy

    This is my go to blog. Not only are the recipes delicious, but they are so simple that even somebody that is scared of the kitchen (me) can turn out something simply divine.

  50. Normajean Rabideau

    I love all your recipes. My daughter, grand daughters and daughter in law are gluten free had to learn to cook a.ll over again.

  51. Elena, I was introduced to your website over a year ago. At the time “it was fun” but not a focus of mine. Since then I’ve shifted my focus to healthier eating and plant-based. It’s not only for feeling better today, it’s for feeling better tomorrow. I love the photos, easy meals and warmth with which they are presented.

  52. Amber


  53. Charles Albrecht

    This sounds like a wonderful cookbook.

  54. Jenn Grandlienard

    My favorite part is that you can make “normal” food out of healthy ingredients and not feel like you’re on a “diet!” Thanks for the amazing recipes!!

  55. You were a huge influence when converting to gluten-free protocols. Your coconut flour chocolate cake saved my skin when the first birthday party came around. The short list of ingredients is my favorite aspect of your recipes. I almostmalways have enough on hand to whip up something from your cookbooks.

  56. Barbara

    I love the simplicity in your recipes. I used to be a horrible cook, but now my boys appreciate me! Thank you!

  57. Emily Elise

    I love the simple recipes with few ingredients!

  58. Mandy Kinzett @ crossfitwired.com.au

    I love that your recipes taste so close to the version with the stuff in it that I can’t eat, and most times even better!!

  59. Josh Beaton

    Your recipes are so TASTY, even my picky boyfriend will still eat them and he hates healthy food!

  60. Jo

    I’ve always thought having food allergies or deciding to eat healthy meant giving up some of my favorite foods, but your easy to follow recipes have shown me that that is not the case! And thank you for your detailed explanations on the ingredients you use. That has been incredibly helpful.

  61. Trish

    I’d love to try these out!!

  62. Megan

    I’ll admit, every time I read a recipe I am so in love with it because it has all the ingredients that I can enjoy and then another one at the bottom catches my eye. Wonderful! So excited to start following your blog!

  63. Pat

    This is the book I would love to have…

  64. Brandi B.

    You were my first look into paleo living–I would love to have a cookbook (I don’t have any yet)

  65. Taryn

    You’ve created simple and friendly recipes! Thank you for writing them down for all of us to enjoy!

  66. Kathleen Zehender @ none

    I have your Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook, and it’s one of my favorites. I’d love this one, too!

  67. Jen

    Looks awesome!

  68. Pat

    I so enjoy the recipes that Elana shares with us on facebook and would love to have her cookbook.

  69. cindy

    I enjoy the simplicity of your recipes. I enjoy the incredible taste and satisfaction of eating healthy after eliminating ingredients I’ve thought all my life were essential to good eating and cooking. I appreciate the encouragement of being able to go to your facebook account and your website and find new recipes when I run dry of ideas and know that I am sticking to a new lifestyle that is turning my health around. You are a blessing, Elana.

  70. Amy

    What I love most about your recipes is that I can make them and FEEL GOOD! No more processed, sugar and gluten filled stuff for me!

  71. Sebette

  74. Cheryl

    I love that your recipes song used weird ingredients. They are real food. Real food. Real real food.

  75. Inese

    I love the simplicity of the recipes.

  76. Suzanne

    I’d love to receive this cookbook, as my local library does not have it yet!!

  77. Jacob

    Your website saved me when I decided to try living a paleo lifestyle. Mainly i needed to figure out how I could continue supplying my sweet tooth! Thankfully I looked into your other recipes as well and keep coming back for more. :)

  78. Sheryl Barto @ ocommunications.net

    I just made your Paleo bread. Cannot tell you how excited I am to have bread again after starting the Paleo diet 1 1/2 years ago. Thank you! It’s delicious and easy to make.

  79. Nicole

    I love although very healthy, your ingredients and recipes are so accessible! I’m a graduate student but still feel like I can make your dishes without being freaked out about time or money being wasted! Love them!!

  80. Vitoria

    I love that the recipes are easy. I also really love that they are ” gluten free” (for me), and “dairy free” ( for my daughter). It was a little discouraging trying to cook gluten free and dairy free till I found Elana’s Pantry! Love the recipes!!

  81. Andrea

    I love that they’re easy to follow, use healthy, allergy-friendly ingredients and taste delicious. My kids love whatever I make – two favourites are the Snickerdoodles and Peach Blueberry Crumble from the Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. It was one of the first cookbooks I bought when my son was had to go GF and I still use it regularly.

  82. Meghan H.

    You have some of the most amazing recipes ever! Thank you so much for sharing them with us!

  83. Amy in Austin

  87. Honey W

    I love that your recipes taste so close to the SAD that even my picky family has never tried one they didn’t like. :)

  88. Hi Elana! I adore your recipes for their no-fuss-but-delicious flavor, but I have to say that what I love even more is often the context and stories behind them! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know a bit about your family along the way. Congrats on your success!

  89. I love that your recipes make eating grain free tastier and not too involved to cook them. :)

  90. Jessica Grant

    Love cook books!

  95. Kymber

    YUMMY, easy recipes that are allergy friendly!!!

  99. Saritha Nord

    Your recipes are simple, straightforward, well-tested = they work and are delicious! Thank you!

  101. Lynette Shearer

  103. Kim

    Every one of your recipes I’ve ever tried has turned out great. You’re one of the few bloggers I trust when making something for the first time that needs to satisfy “regular” people. Didn’t realize this book was so AIP-friendly. If I don’t win, I’ll have to check it out!

  104. Amanda

    I love that you cook with whole, natural ingredients! While I don’t eat strict paleo all the time, I do love having good tasting, grain free recipes!

  105. Jennifer

    I love your recipes because they are written in a way that i can make for my hubby without having to change any of the ingredients. He has a lot of allergies, so it makes it hard to follow a lot of recipes in other books! I would love to add this one to my collection!

  106. Britt

    Oooh, I’ve been wanting your cookbook!

  107. Julie Besaha

    Elana, I love that your recipes are innovative and delicious. Your coconut bars remain one of my absolute favorite desserts, pleasing to special diet and mainstream diet folks alike! :)

Everything I have made has turned out great and now I’m trying to get my mom on board with eating a paleo diet. :)

    Fingers crossed I get to win a copy of your latest book xxxx

  156. For me, one of the major things I’ve enjoyed about your recipes (besides the fact that it was one of the first Paleo-friendly recipe sites I ever found!) are the simplicity but tastefulness of your recipes. Many of my friends’ favorite vegetable dishes that I make come from your site, and I always feel comfortable serving anything I find on here, even if it’s my first time trying it out! I know it’ll be good!

  157. O Haider

    The simplicity : )

  158. Kathy

  163. Kaye

    I love your food photography, but the simplicity of many of the recipes is another bonus!

  164. Mar’cia Schrock

    I am so thrilled to have found your books. They changed my life. My husband and children are very grateful, also. We can now eat meals together that are delicious, healthy, grain and gluten-free. A must for my food sensitivities and allergies. Please keep writing! We will sure keep reading.

    Mar’cia Schrock

You also turned me on to the honeyville almond flour, which is an awesome paleo treasure. I’m sure your new book is wonderful.

  173. Becky Campbell

    Gluten free, nutritious ingredients and all the family enjoys!

  174. Michele

    Your recipes– and perhaps more importantly, your story– have totally transformed the way I cook and the way I think about diet after being diagnosed with MS. Would love a copy of the cookbook!!

  175. Heather

    I’m relatively new to GF baking, and since it’s usually only something I venture into for friends or relatives who are diagnosed with Celiac disease, it’s great to have a source of tried and tested, delicious recipes to choose from!

  176. Rosie

    I love that your recipes are a cinch to follow!

  203. Kathy Kilbourne

    I love your recipes for the variety you give us from fixing a dinner meal to desserts or even just a snack. You have given us all something to look forward to everyday in trying out your recipes!! Thanks so much!!!

  204. I’ve made your paleo bread – numerous times! It’s just so good! I can’t wait until it’s cooler to bake another loaf.

    Yeah, no eggplant in your book (gawd, I despise that purple vegetable .. .lol).


  205. Lisa

    I love that your recipes are always simple and tasty. My copy of the Almond Flour Cookbook is stained and beat up from constant use. Thank you for all you do!

  206. Daisy

    I actually found your recipes when I first went gluten-free due to endometriosis. I’ve since become paleo and continue to love your easy, healthy recipes!

  207. Yanyra

    This book looks awesome !! And I really need it !

  208. Debbie Rowand

    I would sooooo much love to have your book. I have two auto-immune diseases (3 if you count my diabetes). Your recipes would be so awesome to keep those in check.

    Crossing fingers, toes, arms, legs and eyes.

  209. Elizabeth

    I’d love this for my mom.

  210. Katie

    I love you recipes for two reasons:
    1) They are easy to follow yet taste like you slaved for hours on them :)
    2) They taste better than their “normal” counterparts. For example I made normal Irish Soda Bread and then your version for St. Pattys day with friends….People went back for more of your version and left said the normal tasted dull after having yours.

  211. Kelsey Heathers

    I enjoy that your recipes are simple and utterly delicious. I have numerous food allergies and so I have a very difficult time finding things I can eat. Your almond-flour cookbook has been a mainstay for me, and I would be so excited to receive your paleo cookbook and expand my recipe repertoire. I am so thankful for the work you are doing :)

  212. Sally Meyer

    I have made a number of recipes Elana has given us over the last couple of years. They are tasty and easy to make – just the way I like them! Thank you Elana for all the time you have spent putting recipes together and for having to eat the non-successes along the way.

  213. Stacy Gervais

    Love that there is a ton of Love that goes into each and every one of your recipes:)
    Delicious yet accommodating to ones allergic needs when it is so far and few between to find such truly delicious recipes that are attainable:)
    Your a magic woman:) keep up the good work and thanks a bunch for sharing your talent!

    Elana, the thing that I find most wonderful about your recipes is that you have tested them first so they are well thought out and easy to use. Also they are tasty and easy to digest.

    Thank you for ALL you do for those of us who follow a paleo/gluten free diet.



  226. Jessica

  230. Jennifer

    I really enjoy how all your recipes are satisfying. You don’t feel like you are going without or that anything is missing. They’re simply delicious & better for ones health by removing the unnecessary but still so tasty. I also enjoy the array of recipes you offer!

  231. Gail Cookson

    I love how simple and real you keep these recipes (and the hyperlinks to ingredients!)

  232. Tracy

    I love the simplicity, reliability and delicious results of your recipes. As well as the great variety of all kinds of foods. I keep coming back to your website again and again!

  233. Sharon A

    What I most enjoy about your recipes is that I know they have been truly tested, that I can make them as written and they will taste great. I know that all sounds obvious, but there are many cookbooks published by people who really aren’t cooks, with poor directions and/or poor results.

  234. Jennifer

    I love your recipes (and recommend them to all my health-conscious friends.) my fav part: you have many recipes that I can download during the holidays – the HIGH holidays – that directly support my eating habits (I don’t have to alter.) THANK YOU!

  235. april

    I love that I can find nut-free paleo recipes. But what I most enjoy is that every recipe I’ve tried of yours has been so delicious!

  236. Shari from NC

    Thanks, Elana, for another amazing cookbook! Where in NC are you going?

    • Shari from NC


      I’m confused; the posting says Raleigh, NC and the Bookmarks link says Winston-Salem, NC (3 hours away) on Sat, Sept. 7th. Could you please clarify?


  237. Anna

    I love that these recipes help me feed my family healthy and great tasting foods.

    I love the diversity of your recipes – and that it’s easy to prepare meals that don’t make us feel like we’re doing without or missing anything! Thank you for making it easier on all of us who have had to alter our food choices!

  247. sue breshears

    thank you so much for the chance to win your book.

  248. I am a new follower and have not tried your recipes…yet, but what attracts me to them are you’re overwhelmingly positive reviews from other bloggers and the fact that they are allergy free.

  249. I love that I don’t have to modify any of your recipes to fit my diet!

  250. Emily

    Yummy, simple and healthy! Thank you!!!

  251. Maire Sullivan

    I love that your recipes are so tasty that they pass the test with teenaged boys!

  252. Elayne

    I love how accessible your recipes make the grain-free lifestyle! With just a few key ingredients, anyone can go gluten-free and still enjoy the same foods we’ve always loved.

  253. Karen Morrison

    Elana’s pantry has opened my eyes to a delicious and healthy way of eating, and learned that you do not have to sacrifice flavor when you make healthier choices and eat cleanly.

  254. Julie Bernhardt

    I love that I don’t have to modify your recipe for my daughter’s allergies

  255. Kim

    That they are always good and safe for me to eat!

  256. Dawn Tarbox

    I love the fact that the recipes are simple and easy, but taste fantastic. I had to go gluten-free three years ago, which then I went paleo, and everyday for dinner I go to your site for dinner ideas.

  257. Denise

    Quick and simple recipes!

  258. Jenn

    I love that your recipes are simple and don’t require a million steps and/or a bunch of special equipment or ingredients.

  259. Carolyn

    I love the fact that they are gluten free and the ingredients are easy to shop for.

  260. Vannessa

    I love that you suggest specific brands for some recipes. Being new to a Paleo lifestyle finding the ingredients I need for recipes like Paleo Pancakes, I’m always left wondering if I’m buying the right brand. It makes it so much easier to have brand suggestions, it takes a lot of the guesswork out of it. Especially when you are new to a product.

  261. stacey

    I love that most of then are either SCD or easily adaptable to it!

  262. Jammie

    I love that you now have a Paleo cookbook!

  265. Suzanne Burnell @ burnellacupuncture.com

    Love your simple delicious and healthy recipes.

  266. Adrienne ODonnell

    This looks like a wonderful book! I am interested in having a starch-free or low starch diet (not carbohydrate free). So, the Paleo diet is intriguing. I have enjoyed Elana’s recipes (almond flour and coconut flour), so I am looking forward to trying more recipes!

  267. Barb

    Would love to try these recipes.

  268. Feiga
