Giveaway: Everyday Paleo

Today I’m giving away one copy of the book Everyday Paleo by Sarah Fragoso.  It’s a fantastic book for those that wish to learn more about Paleo living, and just as good for people that want to embrace the Paleo lifestyle more deeply.

This is more than a cookbook, it is a manual for living and contains an abundance of information on food, exercise, sleeping, and family life.

Fragoso kicks off the book with inspiring photos of herself that demonstrate what she has achieved by utilizing Paleo diet and exercise.

The before and after pictures of her in a skimpy athletic top demonstrate her impressive results.  After 6 months of Paleo living she looks fit, healthy and her skin glows.  Quite a testament to this way of life.

The exercise section is key to Everyday Paleo and it is one of my favorite parts of the book.  Fragoso provides step by step instructions for how to safely accomplish a pull up (something I have struggled with and plan to refer to in the very near future). Her advice is inspiring, level headed and well organized.

And then there are the recipes, of which I am a big fan.  Everyday Paleo has staples such as Cauliflower Rice, Egg Cupcakes (basically crustless gluten free mini quiche), Chicken Piccata and so much more.  Fragoso also provides a very nice dessert section with super healthy fruit sweetened gluten free desserts to satisfy any Paleo palette.

I highly recommend this book and plan to refer to it often as it has great recipes and many inspiring ideas.

  1. Kristy says

    Everyday Paleo and your website are the only two blogs (on the whole internet!) that I check daily! I’m so glad you got a copy of her book… You two complement each other in so many ways… I come here for all my baking needs and recipes for delicious, delightful treats, and I head over to her site for dinner ideas! (Sometime in that order ;))

    My favorite paleo dish changes at least every other day. Currently it’s celery and almond butter. Yum!

  2. Jamie says

    My favorite paleo recipe is crackers that I make in my dehydrator. They are made out of soaked sunflower seeds, flax seeds and sesame seeds that are put in a food processor with celery, onion, garlic, cilantro, celery seed, Spike seasoning and salt. Then you roll the batter between wax paper and then dehydrate.

  3. scott buss says

    Love your simple and delicious chicken liver recipe. Would love to explore the paleo diet more and it sounds like this cookbook would be a great motivator.

  4. Gwen says

    I’ve just recently learned about the Paleo diet and don’t have a favorite recipe yet. In January, I found out that I have candida. I’ve been on a strict diet ever since. My situation has made me very conscientious of what I feed my husband and two children now as well.

  5. says

    Gluten, soy & dairy free in our house leaves a lot of room for foods that fall into the paleo category. I would love to learn more about paleo as a lifestyle however so that I can claim to have a fave paleo recipe!

  6. Angie says

    Just learning about the paleo lifestyle…I have discovered I can’t digest any grains and now seem to react to nuts as well. I make a pancake in an 8 inch skillet that is two eggs, 1/4 cup applesauce or diced apple, and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I also love avocado pudding ;-) My husband is a celiac as are both “homegrown boys”. Our six adopted kids all show varying degrees of gluten intolerance so the gluten free lifestyle was easy to do. Now with me not able to do any grains it is getting a little more complicated! Thank you for your encouraging recipes and posts!

  7. Brenda Miller says

    I’m not well acquainted with this area of cooking/eating, but sounds very interesting and something I need to investigate further. This book would be much appreciated as a good place to start.

  8. LJEddy says

    I have an autoimmune disease and Fibro. I don’t want my little one to end up like me in her 30s so I’m looking for a new way to eat/live that is healthy, yummy and cleansing. The Paleo lifestyle sounds like what I’m looking for!

  9. jacque gerlach says

    Hope you pick me! Here’s my paleo recipe:

    2 pounds of diced chicken breast
    1 bunch of asparagus cut in 2 inch lines
    2 zuchinni squash sliced
    2 yellow squash sliced
    Olive oil
    Sea salt
    Herbs de provence
    2 lemons
    1 cup Chicken broth

    Put diced chicken in a pan with chicken broth, 3 tbsps lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste in the oven on 400 for 20 minutes. When it’s done add 2 tablespoons lemon zest. Cook asparagus, zuchinni and squash on the stove with olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, salt and pepper for 5 minutes. Try to cook them where they still have a bite to them. Put all food in a casserole dish and add remaining lemon zest from the 2 lemons. You can even garnish with slivered almonds. Enjoy!

  10. says

    My favourite paleo recipe is one I made up myself. I call it Lamb chuck-in-a-pot ;) It is pretty self descriptive. I get about 1kg of cheap lamb chops, throw it in a casarole pot with some random diced vegetables (like carrot and mushrooms) and 1 onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic. Pour 1 jar of passatta (tomoato puree) over the top and about a cup of red wine. Cook in the oven (low-moderate temp) with a lid on for 2-3 hours. The meat just falls off the bones. Sometimes I serve it with a mash of some kind (like sweet potato and pumpkin with lots of butter and sour cream!). Yummy! :)

  11. Holly Chapman says

    OOhh! Favorite paleo recipe? That’s hard. Elana’s Pantry and Everyday Paleo are the sites I visit most for these types of recipes. My family LOVES the sundried tomatoes and chicken off of Everyday Paleo.

  12. Lani says

    I love the Paleo way of life and after 22 years as a vegetarian I feel cured of ailments brought on by a diet high on grain and dairy!

  13. Megan says

    My favorite paleo meal right now is a pickle wrapped in bacon and then wrapped in a piece of organic turkey. I like it because it travels well and I feel good after I eat it. I am very new to paleo and have two kids who are struggling to jump on board with mom’s new way of eating.

  14. Emily says

    I love that so many people are checking out the paleo diet. It has been life changing for me. I have many favorite paleo dishes – but two that I can recommend are turkey burgers (almond flour, eggs, salt, fresh herbs like cilantro or parsley) and the pistachio chicken recipe from Elana’s amazing book.

  15. says

    Having just started embracing the paleo lifestyle this site has been a blessing for me. I found it from following Mark’s Daily Apple. One of the recipes I came across was the cauliflower pizza crust. It is so helpful to have a standard food so we can feel like we are having mainstream food.

  16. says

    Been gluten free for 10 years. love your blog!
    Have a 6 year old with allergies, would be great to have a book as
    a guide for both food and exercise!
    Thank you!!!

  17. Tamra says

    Your Paleo bread is the best. My Dr. had suggested paleo living, you have made it easy and encouraging!

  18. says

    My son’s favorite paleo ish recipe is pancakes, he needs to pack in the calories and can handle some dairy so I altered Pioneer Woman Cooks Sour Cream pancake to be made with coconut flour and flax meal and every pancake has a blueberry face just like Curious George Makes Pancakes. To go with it we love homemade sausage with good clean pork and Penzy’s Mural of Flavor with some salt and nutmeg added. I’ve tried a lot of your recipes, Elana, and love many of them, thanks so much for sharing such great food!

  19. Sarah says

    I love, love, love paleo pad thai made with Kelp Noodle- which is just the inside of kelp and almond butter and cayenne for the sauce. Toss in cucumber, hot chilis, chicken and put on top of field greens… yum…

  20. Sara says

    I honestly still feel a little in the dark about the Paleo diet and would love to dig into the book. I do love your recipe for the Christmas Chocolate Bark, and even gave it as presents to friends last year.

  21. Lara says

    I’ve been following a similar diet and it has been working very well for me. Of your Paleo recipes, I’m torn. I love chai, but also really like the braised greens.

  22. Gabrielle says

    I love Everyday Paleo – both the blog and the podcast. Desperate to get a copy of the book for my own and haven’t been able to find it in any of the local bookstores yet. My favourite paleo recipe is probably Paleo Pad Thai which was shared on melissa’s blog (http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/05/08/paleo-pad-thai/). I never imagined I would be able to enjoy the usually gluten and sodium laden delight that is Pad Thai but this really showed me. Sooo tasty and I think I like it even more than the regular version.

  23. Sara Jean says

    I would LOVE this book! I have to be on a paleo diet for medical reasons so it would be a huge help. Thanks for all you do Elana!

  24. MANDA says

    i dont know that i have a favorite paleo recipe to share;( it sounds as if the paleo diet is very similar to low carb…i notice that cheese is missing though;) i eat very similar to this! i looked through your recipe list elana and i would love to try the chicken ‘noodle’ soup!!!

  25. Diane says

    My favorite recipe is almond pancakes 2 c ground almonds
    1 t baking powder
    1/2 t salt
    1 c cream of of coconut
    1 T honey
    2 cage free eggs
    1 t vanilla
    pinch cinnamon
    bllueberries for mixing into batter
    Combine all ingredients stir in blueberries an cook on hot cast iron griddle. This recipe is adapted from Mercola No grain diet Awesome with real maple syrup

  26. Kathleen says

    Egg Cupcakes sound wonderful. I make pancakes that I use as bread by mixing eggs with coconut flour, a pinch of Himalayan sea salt, a little stevia and vanilla.

  27. Sara says

    I love herby salads with dried or fresh fruit, nuts & cheese with balsamic vinaigrette. My current fave is organic herb salad mix with dried cherries, blue cheese & tamari almonds. Yum!

  28. Helen Holder says

    I found this recipe on Primal Parent:

    Coconut chicken nuggets:

    2 chicken breasts cubed
    ¼ cup beef tallow
    ¼ cup coconut flour (or just enough to coat the chicken)
    2 tsp honey
    Dust of turmeric for color
    Salt to taste

    Cube the chicken. In a bowl, add the honey, turmeric, salt, and flour. Coat the chicken with flour mixture, making sure to thoroughly cover all areas. Heat tallow in a deep saute pan. Add coated chicken when hot. Make sure the chicken gets thoroughly coated with oil. If not, add a little more tallow. You don’t want dry bits of flour. This is a fried recipe! Turn frequently so as not to burn the honey. Serve and enjoy!

  29. Sharon says

    My second day of paleo diet! Exploring new ways to eat and prepare foods. My 1st recipe sautéed boneless chicken in olive oil on top of a mesclun & spinach salad with tomatoes and sunflower seeds. My chaser was lots of H2O.

  30. Julie Liukkonen says

  32. kathy scott says

    All of your recipes are incredible. Just made the paleo bread recipe. Its definately a keeper in this household. Keep up the great recipes.

    Thanks, Kathy S.

  33. Carol says

    My doctor has encouraged me to read the Paleo diet book. It is great to know there is a cookbook out that you recommend…great to have recipes to help us eat healthy. Thanks for sharing

  34. sommer says

    pina colada ice cream has to be my favorite. I have heard a lot about paleo, but haven’t had a chance to read about it. I’d love to read this book and try it out.


  35. Tarrie says

    Dear Elana,
    My favorite is the stuffed green pepper recipe which i will be fixing tomorrow. I bought some great peeppers from my local farmer’s market. They were 3 for $1 and they were all bigger than softballs ! I got 12.

    I’ve only been gluten free for a year, but your website has been a great help to me.


  36. Pinkie Pinkham says

    Elana, I’ve been living Paleo/Primal lifestyle for more than a year now. I have these books:”Primal Blueprint” & “The Paleo Diet Cookbook” in my collection and use their recipe daily. I would be most grateful to be considered for “Everyday Paleo” by Sarah Fragoso.
    Elana, your recipes continully inspire me to prepare better foods for me and my family – many thanks.

  37. lynette says

    Love stuffed zuchinni and paleo tacos stuffed with seasoned grass feed beef. Would love to check this book out :) been low carb/gluten free since 2002. Ready to go primal/paleo.

  38. Sabrina says

    My husband and I struggled with this- he says his favorite paleo recipe is stuffed zucchini . He didn’t know he was referring to a modified recipe of Fragoso’s I made a few weeks ago! The recipe is here: http://everydaypaleo.com/2011/07/21/stuffed-zucchini/ . However, because we live in southern New Mexico and I’m trying to limit the oven use, we sauteed the stuffing and grilled the prepared squash. The results were fantastic, I highly recommend it! My personal favorite recipe is almond flour pancakes- I’m a Sunday morning pancake kind of girl.

  39. Andrea says

    I haven’t tried your Paleo bread yet, but it may well become my favorite because it is so easy! So many GF bread recipes are complicated and that one is so simple.

  40. Tara says

    Would love to win this book. Just started crossfit, we are doing a Paleo 30 day food challenge starting on the 10th. So far I don’t have a favorite paleo recipe but would love to try the gluten free porridge… I really miss my steel cut oats and cracked wheat cereal.

  41. Carissa says

    I love lots of paleo recipes, but my favorite is probably turkey tacos using a romaine leaf as a shell instead of a tortilla. After cutting out many grains and starches I have found that I don’t really miss them!

  42. Rachel N says

    I have to say my favorite recipe so far is the Paleo bread. Very addictive and highly recommended!

  43. Andrea says

    My favorite Paleo recipes are on the blog “The Clothes Make the Girl.” My favorite is either her Meatza Pie or the EZ curry.

  44. Ryan says

    Just found out the girl I’ve been seeing is gluten free, and now we’re recently trying the paleo regimen. Luckily, I can still make her my signature dish, chicken breast stuffed with home grown Anaheim pepper.

    Just pound the meat out and wrap around the pepper and stuffing with toothpicks. Bake in a glass dish and cover with some green chile. My mom would make it stuffed with some cream cheese sauce but I,ve gone the paleo route before making a homemade stuffing to go inside the chicken with some corn, beans, and chorizo (or not). Serve with a side of Quinoa or some fresh tomatoes and avocados.

    I’m getting so hungry. Who has a stash of Anaheim peppers?

    Ps. Poblanos are good too

  45. Robin Freeman says

    After learning more about the Paleo diet, I would love to pass along a favorite recipe. Right now I’m not entirely clear how it differs from what we already do: organic, locally grown (and processed) meat & vegetables & fish with some fruit/gluten-free additions. The book looks fantastic, however, Thanks again Elana for amazing resources!

  46. CJ Jenson says

    Whole Chicken – Crock Pot

    3 – 4 lb Whole Chicken

    Clean Chicken
    Salt and Pepper
    Place in Crock Pot
    Pat with Butter and Basil
    Cook on high for one hour
    Reduce heat to low and cook for 8 to 10 hours

  47. Dave says

    Here is a breakfast recipe I threw together with local ingredients while visiting St. Croix, VI. – Stir fry 2 sliced ripe (nearly black!) plantains in coconut oil or olive oil until golden with brown edges. Add 1 chopped up star fruit. Pineapple or orange can be used instead. Add a handful of raisins (or chopped prunes), and walnuts. Fry a little longer, then pour a shot of rum over it. Rum’s not quite paleo, but it mostly evaporates and just adds a touch of island sweetness. Serve while still hot. Some coconut milk can be added right at the end, or poured on top after serving.

  48. Sarah hart says

    My favorite paleo meal is chicken marabella. We hold the olives and add onion and sundried tomatoes. Put it in the crockpot and it is a great dinner!

  49. Janis S, says

    Wow, this sounds like a great book! Hard to choose one favorite paleo recipe…..probably a yeast free bread.

  50. Jennifer N. says

    Eeny, meeny, miny, moe…

    I love quiche and miss it as a staple brunch dish. so I will select the Cauliflower Rice, Egg Cupcakes because I think can use these for quick breakfast foods. I also think I can make a variety of these using different veggies. Cheers to Cauliflower Cupcakes!!!

  51. Sarah says

    My favorite paleo recipe is Almond pancakes!
    1 cup almond flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 Tbs coconut flour
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup water (consider soda water for slightly fluffier pancakes)
    1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    1/4 tsp sea salt
    coconut oil
    fresh berries

  52. cards by cara says

    I simply love the pizza crust recipe as it is super versatile! I often add herbs to it and it is fabulous. Thanks for the chance to win.

  53. Linda says

    Hello Elana,

    I love to tell you how much I love your site and books!!! I just started eating Paleo way and would love to win this book..

    Thanks again for your book and recipes,
    Linda Seibert

  54. Jen P says

    I’m interested in this book. I doubt it’s something I would adopt wholesale, but I would like to incorporate elements of it into my diet.

  55. says

    I am newly addicted to Chia Flour Bread, completely primal, it has a super texture, more like bread, sort of a cross between a croissant and angelfood cake, and so gloriously healthy! Finally sandwiches again, albeit it is nearly black “bread”. A real conversation starter.
    And Elana’s scones, I make them all the time and even my super picky grain eating mom loves them!

  56. Lili says

    I would absolutely LOVE this book! Well, I know my dear would be the happiest recipent of the goodies from this book ;)!!! Thanks for a very nice offer!

  57. Kristin says

    Favorite?? That is too hard! I made salisbury steak from the everyday paleo website tonight for dinner! YUMMMY! My husband and I have been eating paleo since our honeymoon. It’s going good so far. Coconut shrimp, Fish sticks, cauliflower mashed, frittatas, meatloaf… There are so many good recipes out there!! :)

  58. Julie says

    I do enjoy chewing my food, but I must say the Peanut Butter shake comes pretty darn close to one of my favs :). Easy and de-lish!

  59. Christina says

    Sarah’s Marvelous Meatballs is one of my favorite recipes! My husband and I pair them with spaghetti squash and a side of asparagus for a very filling dinner.

  60. GG Johnston says

    The Egg Cupcakes may be the answer to my breakfast dilemma! I can’t wait to try them. Your Almond Flour cookbook and blog have truly changed the lives of my gluten free/ casein free family. Thank you!

  61. AnnMarie Deis says

    The cauliflower rice is a-maz-ing!!!!!!!! YUM!!!!! I would LOVE to score a copy of this book. It sounds awesome. :)

  62. Sophie Pronovost says

    Can’t say I’ve tried all of your paleo recipes, but my favorite is the apricot power bars. They are nutritious, delicious and also busy-mommy-friendly.

  63. Donna says

    I would love to have a copy of this cookbook. My eight year old daughter has both Type 1 Diabetes as well as Celiac Disease and I have been wanting to try this diet! Thanks a million!

  64. Andrea says

    omg. I love the Peanut Butter Protien Shake(with almoond butter). So quick and easy. And I would love this book. I am just getting started on my Paleo adventure.

  65. Jessica says

    My husband and I love your roasted banana coconut milk ice cream. We love Paleo and hope to win the book. Thanks for your great recipes!

  66. Cheryl Simmerman says

    Flax seed crackers are my favorite recipe right now. Seeds, bit of sea salt, soaked in water until water is absorbed and seeds are sticky. Spread on parchment, bake in a low slow oven until crispy.

  67. Danielle Rafferty says

    I have so many Paleo favorites, it’s hard to pick just one! I think Puerto Rican beef form Sarah’s book is my top favorite. My kids’ love Paleo pancakes (almond or coconut flour) and my entire family loves your breakfast bars! Paleo never has to be complicated or boring!

  68. Dee says

    This is a great book, would love to get this book or one yours. Our library got this book,
    I checked it out so my daughter and I could see how Sarah took charge of her life, implementing healthy eating and exercise. We do a recipe similar to the egg cupcake recipe, very good. I will have to try your broccoli pizza in your book. :) Thanks!

  69. mindy says

    I love making zuchinni noodles, ground turkey (cooked in coco oil) and marinara sauce. I throw in some artichoke hearts and broccoli. Yum!!!

  70. says

    Paleo Bread! But I can’t wait to try the crustless egg cupcakes and cauli rice from the book. Thanks for the giveaway!

  71. Karen says

    I am new to this site and to gluten free cooking. I have made the breakfast bars and love them. I am going to try the cookies with coconut flour next. Thanks for all the great information.

My 1st year gluten free, must find a new recipe for prune cake.(I’m waiting for yours). I have the ingredients for the Paleo Bread, it will be my 1st gluten free Bread to try. Learning a new lifestyle is a challenge. Would love to have the Paleo book. Keeping my fingers crossed. This is a great giveaway. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

    Thanks Bunches… Sherry

  78. says

    Everyday Paleo is absolutely the BEST paleo recipe book, the pics are soo great also! If I had to pick the best recipe I would go with this one:
    http://everydaypaleo.com/2010/09/22/puerto-rican-beef/ because my husband saw this and was so excited to get home and make it. I had just borrowed the Everyday Paleo book from the library and he looked like a little kid reaching for the cookie jar when he saw it. The book is inspirational & is what keeps the paleo way of eating very do-able! If the food wasn’t delicious, we wouldn’t be able to sustain it! Thanks!!

  79. says

    I will submit last night’s dinner for cookbook giveaway:

    Ingredients: 6 boneless pork chops, 1/2 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup dessicated coconut, 1 T garlic powder, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 T onion powder, salt & pepper (if your version of paleo allows it), 4 small apples (peeled, cored and sliced), 1/4 cup ground cinnamon.

    Directions: Preheat toaster oven to 400. Pound and flatten the pork chops. Put the almond flour, coconut, garlic powder, olive oil and salt&pepper in one bowl. Put olive oil in another. Dip pork in olive oil and then into the flour mixture to coat both sides. Put apples in toaster oven and bake 10-15 minutes. While apples are cooking, pan fry the pork chops until golden brown on each side.

  80. Patti says

    I’m new to paleo and love this giveaway!

    My current favorite is a spinach salad with white nectarines, cucumbers, and walnuts. Followed by pan seared salmon with rosemary and zucchini, yellow squash, red peppers, garlic, and shallots sautéed in coconut oil. Yummo!

  81. Jayne says

    My whole family loves Elana’s Paleo Bread – we have it toasted with coconut oil drizzled on the top. Yum!

  82. Jackie says

    My favorite Paleo recipe has to be your Simple Braised Greens, Elena…..oh, how I love greens!!!

  83. Marikay Achen says

    Would love to win this book. I have looked at several times on Amazon, but just can’t spend any more $ yet. I am just starting the Paleo way of eating, so don’t have ANY recipes. Just eat meat and vegetables. Though I love your cupcake recipes, but I don’t think they fit in the Paleo diet? Or do they? So confused. But would love to learn.

  84. says

    I would love to win this book!! Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway!
    My favourite Paleo recipe currently is
    Paleo Chocolate Pudding
    2 ripe avocados, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, raw honey to taste (optional),2 Tblsp coconut oil, and 1 tsp pure vanilla.
    Blend in food processor. Spoon into bowls. Top with real cream and berries!

  85. Alta van Zyl says

  86. says

    Are you kidding??? I have to choose just one favourite?
    Iced ginger chai… chocolate mousse… peanut butter cookies… lemon biscotti… sesame salmon burgers…

  87. Jenni Irwin says

    My favorite paleo recipe is paleo guacamole with almond meal sticks to dip it in. cumin, avocados, chili powder, limes, garlic, cilantro (it calls for salt,but it really doesn’t need it) and then flattend almond meal and bake then cut into strips!
    My husband eats the whole batch so I don’t make it often!!!

  88. Courtney says

    So many that I love. Everyday Paleo’s Butter Chicken and Primal Blueprints Moroccan Chicken are my top two.

  89. Darlene says

    I love Paleo! This book would help me add some more recipes to my current collection, including Elana’s chocolate date balls! Yum Yum!

    I’ve been living the Paleo lifestyle for over a year now and find it has really helped with reducing inflammation and digestive upset. I’ve also lost significant weight on it, combined with Crossfit of course!

  90. Amanda Barkey says

    I have been on the Paleo diet for two months now and it all started when I went to visit a friend for a week and we cooked out of the Everyday Paleo book the WHOLE time.. my absolute fave is the Puerto Rican Beef. AMAZING. I would LOVE to win this book, Ive been dieing to have one for my own!!!

  91. Atour says

    I really love your recipes (the ones I have tried) Your bread recipe was great. I would love to win this book.

  92. says

    So many recipes I love, but my fav is Barbequed Alaskan Shrimp from the Paleo Diet Book by Loren Cordain. It’s easy, great hot or cold, fresh or frozen shrimp it doesn’t matter. Love them!

  93. caroline says

    I’m already doing Paleodiet, so more receipes will going to be helpful. Wish to grab this book!!!

  94. Shannon says

    Right now I am going to have to say Mashed Cauliflower. I have been GF/CF for 2 years and recently (less than a week) Paleo & am loving this one.

  95. says

    Your recipes have helped me so much with the low carb. I’m just starting to investigate the Paleo. Thanks and I’d love to get the book. Linda

  96. says

    Something close to the paleo diet is one of the few things that will work for me.
    And… I actually don’t think I’ve read that one…

  97. Lucretia says

    I love the cauliflower rice! I much prefer it to regular rice or potatoes! I would love to win your book!

  98. Sue says

    I love Everyday Paleo! Took it with me home to WA state for sisters wedding. Other sister, kidnapped book because she loved too!! She made sure to order on amazon and have shipped to me before I got home! One of my staples is the egg muffins, and want to try her Puerto Rican beef. Looks yummy!

  99. Linda Mazar says

    I want to learn more about Paleo living so I would LOVE to win this book! I have to be gluten-free and dairy-free due to health problems, so paleo looks to be the way I need to go. I am excited to hear about the exercise parts since I am into exercise. I want to see what she has to say.

  100. says

    I have just started Paleo after 2 months of being grain free. I love both yours and Sarah’s blogs! You guys have both saved me numerous times with amazing recipes!! Thanks Elana!

  101. Jen DeMoss says

    This is my absolutely favorite paleo recipe, though it’s not mine–I got it from the Paleo Diet Lifestyle website (I hope that’s ok). It’s for Green Chicken Masala, and it’s creamy and spicy:

    Green chicken masala recipe
    Serves 4


    2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces;
    1 cup full-fat coconut milk;
    1 onion, finely chopped;
    1/4 cup lemon juice;
    1/2 cup water or chicken stock;
    4 garlic cloves, minced;
    2 cups fresh cilantro leaves;
    1 cup fresh mint leaves;
    1 jalapeño pepper, chopped coarsely;
    1 1/2 tsp turmeric;
    1/2 tsp cinnamon;
    1/2 tsp ground cardamom;
    1/8 tsp ground cloves;
    3 tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter;
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;

    Heat a large skillet over a medium heat and add the onion with the cooking fat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until the onion starts to soften.
    Add the chicken thighs as well as the turmeric to the skillet and continue cooking, still while stirring occasionally, for about 7 minutes.
    Meanwhile, place the lemon juice, water or stock, cilantro, mint, jalapeño and garlic in a blender or food processor and process to obtain a smooth puree.
    After the chicken has cooked for about 7 minutes, add the cloves, cardamom and cinnamon. Cook for another minute.
    Pour in the coconut milk, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and add the herb puree.
    Bring to a simmer and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is well cooked and tender.


  102. Brandae says

    Awesome giveaway – thank you!
    From your recipes, I’ve made the lemon biscotti and enjoyed that. I want to adapt the vegan peanut butter cookies to an almond or cashew butter and suspect those will be great too!

  103. Erin Watts says

    My favorite recipe from Everyday Paleo is the Gluten Free Silver Dollar Pancakes! They are easy to make, always turn out good, and are delicious as well!! Thanks, Erin

  104. Davida says

    My most recent favorite is Sweet Potato Pancakes, they are delicious! This is an awesome giveaway!

  105. says

    I have to say that Simple Braised Greens is about my favorite addition to any meal, any time of day. Paleo might be my new experimental diet…it looks and sounds great!!! Thanks Elana

  106. Paula says

    This cookbook looks fantastic! I am moving whole-heartedly into the Paleo/Primal way of living. I love cookbooks – I read them like the NYTimes bestsellers! My boyfriend & I recently lost 20 & 15 lbs respectively, by following a more primal way of eating. I can’t wait to make your Paleo bread, Elana – I went gluten-free a year ago for health reasons, so giving up most all grains wasn’t a huge hurdle for me. But I still love to have a turkey or roast-beef panini now & then, and even a bread-pudding indulgence here & there – and now with your Paleo bread recipe, I can still enjoy these kinds of treats! Thanks for the your great recipes – I love your cookbooks – I am all about almond flour and coconut flour! Keep up the wonderful recipes and the inspirational ideas! :)

  107. Gerry Jones says

    We love this primal meatloaf from purelyprimal.com

    • 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef (or you can use any wild game)
    • 3/4 cup almond flour
    • 1 free-range egg
    • 1 med yellow onion
    • 1 small green bell pepper
    • 3 garlic cloves
    • 1-1/2 tsp Old Bay
    • 1 tsp Organic No-Salt Seasoning
    • 1/2 tsp dried sage
    • 1/2 tsp blended ground peppercorns (I’ve got a grinder with red, white, green, and black mixed)
    • 1/2 tsp ground mustard seed

    For the Glaze:
    • 1/4 cup ketchup (NO HFCS!)
    • 1/8 cup yellow mustard
    • 1-1/2 tsp honey
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • dash of Worcestershire sauce (again, no HFCS)
    • dash of hot pepper sauce

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Put the meat in a bowl large enough to leave you some room to work.  Then put the almond flour and all of the herbs and spices for the meatloaf in a small food processor.  Pulse to mix well, but not turn the almond flour into nut butter.  Dump it on top of the burger in the mixing bowl.

    Cut the pepper and onion up in to pieces small enough to fit in the same food processor.  The garlic cloves should fit in there whole.  Blend things up to mince everything so it will blend into the meatloaf well.

    Add the pepper, onions, and garlic to the burger and almond meal in the mixing bowl, along with the egg, and work everything with your hands to mix well.  Take your time – make sure you don’t have any pockets of almond meal not mixed in or you’ll have a very dry bite at that point.  When you’ve got it all mixed to your liking, press it into a loaf pan for shape.

    Now, run a knife along the sides to loosen it from the loaf pan, and turn it out into a 13×9 baking pan.  Insert a meat thermometer at an angle so that it reaches the center of the loaf (make sure it is NOT touching the pan).  In my case, I have a probe for my oven, so I simply use the probe.  Put the pan in the oven (which should be about pre-heated by now) and set the timer for 10 minutes.
    Once that is in the oven, take your glaze ingredients and mix them well in a bowl or cup.  When the timer goes off, spoon/spread the mix over the top of the meat loaf, which should just be starting to cook.  Close the oven back up and continue cooking until the meat thermometer reads 150~155 degrees (roughly another 30 to 40 minutes).
    Take it out of the oven and let it sit for five minutes or so.  Transfer to a cutting board if you are in to nice presentations (we rarely have time for such things around here), then slice and serve along side some fresh greens or steamed broccoli and cauliflower.  Enjoy!

    Pasted from

    This time 7/15/11, I sauted the onions and peppers in bacon grease and then put them into the blender and they blended up really well. And I omitted the glaze. (Rachel didn’t like the glaze)

  108. Kristin Walukas says

    I’d love the book! My current favorite is the Paleo bread you posted recently. I really love it with a kale salad and roasted chicken.

  109. says

    Already in love with most recent Paleo Bread recipe! The best!!! Easy to prepare, moist… Yummmm. Thank you, thank you.

  110. Christina Jensen says

    I am interested in this book to learn more about eating the Paleo way. I do not have a favorite paleo recipe since I’m unfamiliar with what it means. We have to eat gluten-free.

  111. says

    Hi Elana!!!! It’s me, Allie! This book sounds absolutely marvelous! :) I know there are similarities between the Paleo diet & the SCD diet so this book would be a great addition in my kitchen!! My favorite Paleo recipe would have to be your chicken soup with zucchini noodles. Nothing makes me feel more fabulous than chicken soup. To add zucchini makes its deliciousness go over the top!! :) Thanks for all you do, Elana!!! Keep up the good work!! -Allie

  112. Victoria says

    I would love to win a copy of Sarah Fragoso’s Everyday Paleo book!! After struggling with nutrient deficiencies (iron, B12, D), gastritis, and chronic fatigue, I decided to go paleo about 6 months ago. I follow Sarah’s blog and my favorite recipe is her shrimp, beet, kale and pecan salad. I’ve recently discovered your blog and that Paleo bread looks to die for. I bought almond and coconut flours today and am ready to try baking it! Thanks for your hard work!!

  113. says

    I’d love a copy of this book! I have on read of it on blogs like yours so far but would like to know more. The chicken meatballs you posted look great and I plan to try them soon.

  114. kristina foster says

    My favorite recipe is Civilized Caveman’s Crockpot Pulled Pork with Big Tim’s Beastly BBQ sauce!

  115. Kim Swalwell says

    I don’t know a lot about the paleo diet but I have several allergies and the recipes talked about would be okay for me to eat. I have tried cauliflower rice and loved it and am working on an acorn squash curry sauce to go with it right now. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas Elena!

  116. says

    My favorite is the berry cobbler. So healthy, it could be a dessert or for breakfast! I recently made it for a bunch of non-paleo friends and they all loved it and went back for seconds and thirds. :)

  117. says

    I don’t yet have a favorite recipe as I haven’t tried many. That said, the few I’ve tried (can’t remember which were and weren’t) were really good. I’d love to learn more about it and give the way of living and eating a try.

  118. Nicole says

    I love making salmon with asparagus, sundried tomatoes, organic nitrate free bacon, and snow peas sauteed in butter, lemon, and a splash of white wine :) Oh yum! I am a recent paleo convert and would really love to win a copy of this book!

  119. says

    I would love a copy of the Paleo book because I have just begun to suspect I need to find another way to eat. I eat healthy, but I think I am starting to experience some changes in my tolerance since entering perimenopause.

    I love your recipes and make your almond cookies for everyone I love. They always ask for the recipe.


  120. Janelle says

    I haven’t had a chance to really try any recipes, but I have created my own with grilled steak and carrots sauteed in bacon fat…yum:) I would love to have a copy of the book so my husband and I can really start down the Paleo road.

  121. Vanessa Sheets says

    My fav Paleo recipe is a the chicken “noodle” soup, made with julienned zucchini. So good!

  122. Liz M says

    I love mashed “fotatoes” (mashed cauliflower). I especially love bringing them to parties and not telling people that there are no potatoes in the dish :-)

  123. Colleen Hourigan says

    Do my own version of egg cupcakes my boys love them for breakfast or as a snack after school

  124. Carrie says

    How timely! We have just been discussing this book in our circle of friends. I would love to win this book! :)

  125. Julie says

    We are just learning about this Paleo lifestyle and am so excited about it! Can’t wait to read the book.

  126. Patty says

    Seventeen years ago I was diagnosed as gluten intolerant. I got used to it. Was ecstatic to find your blog a few years ago, then I got diagnosed with prediabetes and had to go low carb. It took me a while to stop craving treats but I am pretty happy with simple food. So my favorite Paleo recipe? I think something like blueberries with coconut milk or Bittman’s kale with tahini or caulirice or eggs poached on sauteed greens….Thanks. Patty

  127. says

    Hi Elana- I’m new to gluten-free eating and your site is a god-send. I’m 2 days into the Paleo lifestyle and hope to try out many of your recipes in the future! Thanks!!

  128. says

    I’m currently a big fan of your Paleo Bread! I’ve been switching it up with add-ins…my most recent is blueberries with orange rind…with some added stevia and cinnamon (is stevia paleo? don’t care, tastes good!) :-)

  129. Rebecca R. says

    A Paleo favorite of mine that I fix weekly is Egg “Muffins”. They are a great grab-and-go to get out of the door quickly in the morning. I saute a few random diced veggies (mushrooms, bell peppers, spinach or whatever I have around) in some cocunut oil and add some Paleo friendly sausage (also diced). Fill the bottom of muffin cups. Beat 10-12 eggs and fill the muffin cups. Cook at 400 for 20min and you have breakfast ready for the week!

  130. Brittany says

    My favorite paleo recipe is paleo pad thai, using spaghetti squash and homemade sunshine sauce (Whole 30 recipe!).

  131. Lucy says

    I loved your recipe for the savoury crust quiche. We made it the other night night and it was so much easier than regular pastry!

    Juicylu @ yahoo dot com

  132. Lori says

    I love a steak on the grill with grilled veggies on the side!

    Love your site – thanks for all the great recipes and give-aways!

  133. Harmony says

    my go-to paleo favorite is taco salad – ground beef with a variety of spices, over greens (I alternate mixed greens, arugula, romaine, kale – whatever is on hand) with avocado, olives, tomato, or whatever other veggies are in season and sound tasty. Frankly, this is something I can eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

  134. Kiki says

    When I discovered I had even more food allergies (aside from gluten and dairy), I heard about Paleo or Primal living. It has been a life saver for me. I would love to own this book to bring my children into my new way of living. They have been quite resistant, but I’m wearing them down slowly, but surely. :)

  135. Heather says

    Our family made the switch to the paleo/primal lifestyle back in January after witnessing the incredible health benefits the Specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) had for a relative suffering for years with Crohn’s disease. Our favorite recipe is roasted vegetables (brussel sprouts, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and beets) with olive oil and a bit of garlic paired with a marinated flank steak. Favorite marinade of the moment is #2 from: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-to-marinate-meat/

    Its always amazing to see your kids fighting over the last brussel sprout or cauliflower on their plates :)

  136. Jennifer Houle says

    My easy comfort food paleo go to is “sloppy sweets”. Basically homemade sloppy Joe mix pour over a baked sweet potato!

  137. Kathy Tully says

    Favorite recipe? Hmmm……love the mashed cauliflower BUT the pina coladas are DELISHHH……Thank you for all your yummy ideas.

  138. courtney says

    I love paleo pancakes with just almond butter, eggs, and bananas
    so simple and better than the flour alternative!

  139. Amy Hilton says

    Stuffed Zucchini! We are new to Paleo and it was a hit with my kids! :) Hope to get this book soon.

  140. RedDoll says

    I had never heard of the paleo diet until I came across your website while looking for gluten free baked goods… We have actually tried to go semi-paleo, just from what I’ve been reading about so this book would be fantastic! My favourite paelo recipe is lettuce cups with a ground beef stirfry inside, the kids love it (and the big kids too!).

  141. Gina says

    I’ve been Paleo for the past year and a half, and I must say, I really think it is the answer. It gives you everything those fake infomercial diets say they give you only for real: nice hair and skin, good sleep, great energy, perfect weight, etc, etc.

    Anyway. I would say my favorite Paleo “recipe” (if you can really call it a recipe) is plain and simple steak tartar. Of course from fresh, grass fed, organic, preferably local beef.

    And for any other Paleovores out there, make sure to make it out to the Ancestral Health Symposium 2012 at Harvard! I was lucky enough to make it to the first at UCLA, and I must say, in the words of Loren Cordain, it really was the “Woodstock of evolutionary medicine.” And Sarah Fragoso was there, and she does look as good in person and she does on the cover of her book.

  142. Terri Stankiewicz says

    I started eating Paleo about a year-and-a-half ago as part of a cleanse recommended by my nutritionist (though I did not know it was Paleo at the time). I am sticking with it because I feel so much better, but am bored with my recipes. I would love to get new recipes and lifestyle ideas!

  143. Candice Garcia says

    My favorite paleo recipe is coconut curry chicken served over cauliflower rice with sliced avacado on the side. Delish!
    I would love to have a copy of Sarah’s cookbook, her website has helped me so much.

  144. Megan Gabriel says

    My favorite paleo recipe are the coconut macaroons from Promal Women in the Kitchen. Amazing!

  145. Alix smith says

    My favourite paleo recipe is lamb rogan Josh from Zoe harcombe’s recipe book. Love a good curry!

    Thanks for the competition!

  146. Tiffany says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is grilled salmon seasoned with lime, sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper, with a side of grilled asparagus and quinoa! Almond butter and blueberries seasoned with cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg if hankering for dessert! :)

  147. Christine says

    I changed to Paleo in March 2011 and am not turning back. I feel great and have lost almost 40lbs. I laughingly find myself judging other people’s shopping carts full of junk in the grocery store. My favorite recipe from Sarah is the Paleo Mayo. I use it to make everything from tuna/chicken salad to using it as a flavored dip. Thanks to you both for providing such useful resources for us novice Paleo converts.

  148. Rachel says

    My favorite paleo meal is meatballs with lots of shredded veggies mixed in, served over spaghetti squash. I’ve been wanting to get this book!

  149. Marlo S. says

    My favorite recipe is Emergency Protein from Nom Nom Paleo, made with grassfed ground beef. Inexpensive, quick, easy, and delicious!

  150. Joanna says

    I’ve been eating Paleo for about a month now, and it’s going great, but I do find myself eating the same things over and over. I made your Paleo bread and it was amazing!! I had to sit on my hands to keep from eating the whole loaf! It was a bit raw in the middle, but I think that was because I took it out too early and used a small vintage Pyrex dish. I can’t wait to make it again!

  151. says

    I would love this book to read more about committing to a Paleo lifestyle. This book looks much more fun and user friendly than the book I have on it now.

  152. victoria zambaras says

    love the paleo bread recipe! thanks soooo much! would love to win the book! Appreciate all your hard work Elana! Much love- vicki

  153. Kathy Kilbourne says

    I am not familiar with the Paleo Diet, so the book would be a great introduction for me. I have suffered with candida for years so being gluten free is important for me. With any luck maybe I will get to find out what my favorite recipe would be with this book. I know I love your Almond flour cookbook. Thanks for the opportunity.

  154. Tiffany says

    My favorite meal is Zucchini Noodles and Meat Sauce…a paleo take on Spaghetti! We ate it with raw carrot sticks instead of the breadsticks.

  155. Katie Bennett says

    I don’t have a favourite yet as I don’t have a copy of the book but I’d love to win a copy so I can get a favourite. I need all the help I can get, my partner refuses to eat veges so I need some new ideas to get him eating them.

  156. Mandy says

    My favouite paleo recipe is “No Peanut Thai Sauce” on grilled chicken and stir-fry veggies. With grilled peaches topped with whipped coconut cream and cinnamon for dessert!

  157. Dana K says

    I’m new to Paleo (6 weeks in, 6 inches of belly fat gone & down 18lbs and way less knee pain!!) and I was struggling until I discovered Paleo Mayo!

  158. Kate says

    I would LOVE a copy of this book!! I’m on such a tight budget, that I haven’t been able to get it yet – but I am loving eating Paleo!

    One of my fav. recipe’s so far is to take raisins and almonds, put them in a food processor, and then roll them into little balls with my hands. They are perfect before a workout or to replace gu’s on a long-run.

    I also like the Peanut Butter Protein Shake (http://www.elanaspantry.com/peanut-butter-protein-shake/). It’s a perfect in-my-cooler lunch for when I’m in a rush!

  159. Cori says

    Definitely mashed cauliflower as a side. I found a recipe for cauliflower rice risotto that I’ve been meaning to try as well.

  160. Melissa Collins says

    My favorite paleo recipe is flank steak and veggies. I would love a copy of her book to have more variety!

  161. says

    I’m loving all these great paleo recipes. Time to get cooking.

    Tomorrow I’m making shredded chicken tacos in my crockpot.

    In crock: boneless breasts with seasonings (cumin, chili powder, corriander, s/p, paprika, zest and juice of lime. cook all day. At meal time, it’ll shred up beautifully.

    Meal time: saute zucchini, anaheim peppers, mushrooms, shallots and garlic in olive oil. (can use coconut oil)

    EAT: Wrap cooked ingredients with butter lettuce or make a salad with all the fixins–salsa, avos, tomatoes, fresh cilantro, etc.

  162. says

    My favorit paleo recipe is for almondbutter pancakes: 2 tbls almond butter, two eggs, 2 smashed bananas, 1 teaspoon baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and vanilla. YUM!

  163. says

    I follow your blog as well as Sarah’s. Our favorite weeknight recipe is the paleo tacos. I make them at least once a week. I made her ginger beef one time as well and thought I might eat the bowl. It was AMAZING.

  164. says

    Well, I’m just getting started on this Paleo lifestyle. HAving this book would really help me out! So far, though, I am LOVING cooking with Coconut oil! I baked Atlantic Salmon in it with Rosemary and Pecans. Delish! I also really liked the Bison burgers my husband and I made the other night. I love eating like this!

  165. Brittney says

    I LOVE making grassfed beef burgers with a huge dollop of avocado guac, caramelized onions all in a crisp lettuce ‘bun’. A favorite even for those who aren’t Paleo!

  166. Paula says

    I would love to win this book for my daughter, who is on the Paleo diet and is feeling great on it!

  167. Jill Hallam says

    I am just starting out on the paleo diet, so I don’t have any favourite recipes yet. One I want to try first is the Shepherds pie, made with cauliflower mash :-)

  168. Stephanie says

    Paleo Mayo! Obviously not alone, but after mastering the technique I finally feel adequate in the kitchen! :)

  169. Amy Watts says

    My favorite Paleo meal is a grassfed burger salad with pastured bacon, avocado, and tomatoes. I make a dressing with homemade mayo and homemade ketchup and mix in some bacon drippings. Simple but delicious!

  170. says

    One of my very favorite foods in the world is almond butter. Freshly made, still warm from the Vitamix. On its own, or with celery, or for a divine sweet treat, mash in a banana.

    For something slightly more involved, your vegan almond flour crackers are fantastic!

    Or a smooth mushroom soup: first make a shiitake mushroom broth. Then sautee crimini mushrooms until they release all their liquid. Add some shiitake broth and thyme to the sauteed shrooms. Puree in the Vitamix, and blend in just a bit of cashew creme to round it all out. Season to taste and dig in!

  171. Violet says

    Paleo banana pancakes – 2 bananas, 1 egg, 1 tbsp almond butter. Mix and cook like panacakes. That’s it.

  172. Kim says

    Would love to have this book. Too difficult to pick a favorite, but I’ll go with coconut lime shrimp simply because I hated shrimp my entire life until I went Paleo and my tastebuds changed.

  173. Eileen says

    The crustless quiche sounds fabulous. I have been wanting to get into Paleo, this sounds perfect!

  174. Anne says

    I have so many favorite recipes, many of them are yours! I have to say the banana-blueberry muffins from your cookbook is probably number one, Grandma’s BBQ pork and Pork Fried “Rice” from Mark Sisson’s Primal cookbooks are 2 and 3.

  175. Jenny says

    My favorite paleo recipe is one I made up myself. I love Tom Ka Gai soup at Thai restaurants, so I found some recipes and made it paleo. It’s pretty close to paleo to start so it was easy.

  176. Christine says

    I’m intrigued by the recipes even though I don’t do Paleo. I’m in it for being grain-free but we don’t do meat. I’m allergic and my spouse is vegetarian. I like all the ideas of veggies substituting for grains like the Cauliflower Rice. It seems though that most recipes call for some kitchen appliances that are expensive purchases: stand mixers, food processors, commercial grade blenders, juicers, etc. Not everybody can afford them. It would be nice think so in a more perfect world.

  177. Kristy Dygulski says

    My favorite recipe is paleo stuffed cabbage. What a great giveaway. I would love a copy of this book!

  178. says

    i’m going to try the paleo bread tonight. i’m celiac and would love to eat the paleo diet. this book would make it easier.hopely the book would help my son,whom has health issues. thank you!

  179. James says

    I love anything to do with sweet potatoes :)

    Cumin roasted sweet potatoes are by far my favorite recipe though.

  180. Michelle in Austin says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is a stuffed pepper recipe that I have adapted to make paleo. Instead of cooked rice in the stuffing, I use broccoli slaw. I find that it has the same texture and consistency as rice, and I can’t tell the difference (except I feel so much better after eating Paleo).

  181. Krystal says

    My favorite paleo recipe is definitely the mashed cauliflower from The Food Lover’s Primal palate. YUM!

  182. Jeni Stanley says

    I LOVE Cauliflower rice. I love making fried “rice” with it! Even my picky husband and kids can’t get enough!

  183. Diane says

    I love to make cauliflower ”potato” salad with mayo, onions and celery. It tastes just like potato salad but it is made with cauliflower instead.

  184. Karen says

    I love the meatloaf recipe from Sarah’s website. I also really liked her Puerto Rican beef recipe!

  185. says

    So far, my favorite is mayonnaise! I’m serious, it’s life-changing. I have made many, many of her dishes and all are great, but I use the mayo all the time.

  186. Kaye says

    I just tried the latest Paleo bread recipe and it had rocketed up to my absolute favorite. It’s brilliant. I used Trader Joe’s almond meal which isn’t blanched and it worked perfectly.

  187. Rin says

    My favorite paleo recipe is to peel zucchini noodles and then toss them with homemade pesto, cook through on the stove and serve. They are delicious! Even my Italian husband whose comfort food is white pasta loves this meal! Thanks for the giveaway—the cookbook would be a great one to add to our kitchen!

  188. anna eidson says

    The pina colada ice cream, of course! It’s genius! I am so grateful to all of you who dedicate your life to making it easier to live my life healthfully.

  189. Dodi says

    I must admit I’m not well-versed in the paleo lifestyle, but I’m an eager student–and this book would really help me. I recently bought some Caveman Cookies (I think they are paleo), and I really like them. I would hope to find a similar recipe. Thanks for the giveaway.

  190. Jessica says

    I’m a big soup lover! My favorite paleo soup is sweet potato and leek or sweet potato and chorizo! I like to make big batches of each and can them. :)

  191. Melinda Sauder says

    What a great giveaway…

    And our current favorite paleo food is Japanese Yams…baked all day like in a 225 degree oven…perfect firmness, but brings out the sweet too…

  192. Suzette says

    I am just a novice yet, but my body and I (and the family) have really been loving the paleo way. Cauliflower mash versus mashed potato, paleo bread, dairy free chocolate mousse… love it all! Cant wait to explore and learn more!

  193. Marie Davis says

    We eat “like cave people” here! :) Love everything coconut so would have to say my favorite paleo recipe is the Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Would love this book! Her website is great. thanks Elana!

  194. Melanie says

    Bunless burgers! Any kind, I love topping them with peppers, mushrooms and sweet onions sauteed in coconut oil, and a dollop of Paleo garlic mayo.

  195. Lindsey S. Tucker says

    I love grilled chicken with fresh tomatoes, basil and avocado over a bed of arugula sprinkled with olive oil and salt. Yum!

  196. Fran Danner says

    Sorry, know nothing about Paleo but would love to learn. I love your stuffed peppers so I guess I’ve been cooking paleo.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  197. zingara says

    what i know about a paleo diet is very sketchy…but i am assuming that the preparation of a paleo diet would not include the use of knives, nor other utensils, no stoves, running water, no means to butcher large animals, no blenders, etc. therefore, a favorite meal for a true paleo might be some young edible leaves from a tree, a few grubs dug [w/ a stick] from the ground, a soft root to gnaw on, a snared lizzard, & perhaps a chunk of honey comb, stolen from a wild bee hive. zingara

  198. Laura says

    Grass-fed burgers on the grill! We serve them in lettuce leaves with tomato and avo…so easy and good!!

  199. says

    Autumn Chili

    I would love to have a chance to win the Paleo book. I am very new to this way of eating and therefore have no favorite recipe.

    However, from some of the comments that came before mine, the roasted brussel sprouts sounds great, your almond flour pizza crust is definitely a must do for me, and I have been making cauliflower rice and mashed cauliflower (or faux potatoes) for quite a while and I love it.

    And last but not least, someone mentioned sweet potatoes with pecans and coconut oil which sounds yummy!


  201. Brooke S. says

    My fav is the Paleo Bread, b/c it it’s the closest thing to real bread I’ve tasted…..I miss bread.

  202. Katie says

    This looks like a great book! I was recently diagnosed with PCOS and am slowly learning more about the Paleo diet and why it would be beneficial for me and my battle with weight :)

  203. says

    My absolute favorite Paleo recipe is the Cauli Rice!! Not only is the particular recipe mentioned in your post tasty, but we also use just the plain cauli rice as a substitute in our house as we love our meat curries!

  204. says

    Tomato-cocnut soup with meatballs:\

    Slice tomtoes in dices, put them in a blender and pour the fluid in a pan.
    Add a can of coconut milk/cream and also the meatballs.
    Bring it to a boil while adding some fresh herbs to flavour to your taste.

    Buon appetito !

  205. Renee says

    Our favorite recipe is your Paleo Bread. Finally, I bread my gluten free daughter likes! Thank you!

  206. Mary says

    My favorite paleo recipe is elanas bran muffins. Bran muffins used to be my staple for breakfast during college and these hit the spot. I change them a little by adding .5 banana, 1-2 T more water and 1 T honey. This makes them more moist as they were too dry for me. I have also made them into apple cinnamon bran muffins by omitting the sunflower seeds and adding .5 banana, 1 T honey, 2 t vanilla extract, .5 chopped apple, 1 more T water and 1 T cinnamon. My whole family was surprised how good they were and are now addicted!

  207. emily says

    favorite paleo recipes/meals:
    Primal Energy Bars (from Marks Daily Apple)
    Chicken Cacciatore
    Zucchini Noodles
    Sausage with Peppers & Onions
    Grilled Steaks with Cauliflower Mash

  208. Ashley B. says

    We are just starting to eat Paleo (and my the changes are fast to feel and see), but my favorite treat is homemade almond butter on a warm banana–no recipe needed! We would be thrilled to have Sarah’s book to guide us on this food adventure!

  209. Tammy Holtzer says

    My favorite paleo recipe is wild salmon with braised kale and garlic cooked in coconut oil and then finished with crumbled cashews. Delish! thanks for all you do—love all the inspiration you give me for my daughter with Celiac!

  210. Celeste says

    I would have to say my favorite is the Apple Crisp! Nothing can beat a warm apple crisp in the fall–looking forward to making this soon!

  211. Jaz Mannion says

    My favorite Paleo Recipe comes from my brother Bill who is an inspiration to many. He runs Renaissance in Philadelphia and leads his family in taking care of themselves the Paleo way. I have dipped my toes into the Paleo way and liked it however always wondered how to “take it on”. The Paleo Everyday book looks like a great tool to support our family to step into A healthy lifestyle.

    2 favorite recipes-
    Sweet potatoe with pecans and coconut oil. Best eaten warm. Roast in oven add oil when done.

    Carob Fudge: Avocado, Maple syrup, carob. Mash together 2 avocadoes, maple syrup and carob powder to taste a bit of sea salt. top with Buckwheat or nuts. super yummy

  212. says

    I have not tried it yet, but I can’t wait to try the almond flour pizza crust. We are making slow (cost effective) changes. I am using up all the old food — and introducing new gluten-free foods slowly. I would love to have this book.

  213. Crystal Smith says

    Your Paleo bread is my new favorite. I can’t keep it around the house more than a few hours – everyone loves it.

  214. Lynne says

    Would love to have this book. Favorite paleo dish – any broiled vegetable (especially brussel sprouts!) and Chicken Puttenesca!

  215. Christie Ducote says

    I love Paleo Spanish Rice!

    1 head of fresh cauliflower
    1 TB butter
    1 large onion, diced
    1 large green pepper, diced
    10 large green spanish olives (stuffed with pimento), chopped
    1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes in juice
    1/2 cup chicken stock
    1/2 tsp granulated garlic (or 1 clove fresh chopped)
    1/2 tsp oregano
    1/8 tsp cayenne
    Juice of 1/2 lime.
    Salt and pepper

    In a large heavy bottomed pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and peppers and saute about 5 minutes until starting to soften. Add olives, tomatoes, chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and add spices. Simmer 30 minutes. While simmering, clean the head of cauliflower, and separate into smaller pieces. Place about 1/3 to 1/2 of the cauliflower in a food processor and process until very finely chopped, about the size of rice. Remove to a bowl, and process the remaining cauliflower. After the sauce has simmered (to thicken slightly and combine flavors), add the cauliflower to the pot along with the lime juice. Stir to combine. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes, just to warm the cauliflower through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  216. Melissa Jackson says

    I have been wanting to learn more about Paleo and try some of the recipes. I don’t have a favorite as of now, but I’m sure I can find one quickly in the book!

  217. says

    I love making cauliflower “mashed potatoes” and turkey
    chili (without the beans), yum!

    And from Elana’s website, any coconut flour muffins, more yum!

  218. Kristi says

    Ooooooh, I would love this! I am allergic to well, everything and am grain, dairy, yeast etc free and I LOVE your cookbooks and have been wanting to buy this one as well! Thanks for the chance to win it! I will be crossing my fingers!

  219. Kristine rosenberger says

    I have been trying different Paleo recipes and can’t say enough about the diet and tge way it makes you feel…

  220. denise says

    i’ve been wanting to learn more about the whole paleo thing, so this would be perfect. especially doing it on a tight budget.

  221. Rita Malkin says

    As a celiac, Type 2 diabetic, the paleo diet is the ideal diet for me. The foods listed look wonderful. How can anything with peanut butter be bad? ;-) Thanks for offering it.


  222. shirley says

    My “favorite” Paleo recipe is…I haven’t tried it yet, but I am making the bread soon! I’ve ordered the pan from Amazon and am waiting for it to arrive :-)

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  223. Kara says

    I was just looking at the Paleo books at my friend’s house on Monday! I would say that I’m looking forward to the Cauliflower rice!!

  224. Alicia :) says

    My favorite Paleo recipe would be your new bread recipe. AmAzInG!!! I would use this book everyday.

  225. says

    I’m still waiting for this book from my local library, so I’d love to win a copy for myself! One of my favorite Paleo treats is warm blueberries with a splash of coconut milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. So easy and delicious! Thanks for the chance to win!

  228. Sabrina says

    Have felt so much better since begininning the Paleo diet. Would love to win the book, as it appears to be very inspirational, as well as informative. One of my favorite paleo recipes are the roasted broccoli spears–they can become addicting.

  229. Lori Hogan says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is Bison Chili. I would LOVE to read this/better inform myself. I am pretty new to this and think she would have AWESOME tips for converting one’s family!

  230. Sarah says

    My favorite paleo recipe is Elana’s Paleo Bread. Healthy eating, without feeling deprived! I am enjoying this way of life!

  231. Jennifer says

    Haven’t tried the recipes yet but just discovered my family follows this eating style. Can’t wait to try some recipes!

  232. says

    Choose just one, really!?! Ok, dessert first, Strawberry Sorbet! Smoothie, the PB protein smoothie. And main course would probably be the raspberry spinach salad :)

  233. Jackie Davis says

    I am very interested in this type of diet. I have printed out the GF grain free chicken noodle soup recipe and the cauliflower rice as they sound perfect for my diet. I use your almond flour pizza crust out of your book but have yet to try it with the broccoli….wasn’t up to a garden year. The book would be a great resource to help me in applying the Paleo diet for the bettering my health.

  234. says

    Never enough GF ideas. My husband keeps talking about going Paleo–this book would be a great start for him and more recipes for us.
    Yeah!! Love your daily/weekly notes Thanks, YG

  235. Diana says

    I am not ashamed to be called a foodie, cookbook freak, etc….
    I am still excited about all the things I can do with Almond Flour, Coconut Flour…..but hey, let’s learn some Everyday Paleo recipes!!

  236. Jill says

    I’ve been eating almost Paleo for a few months now, and it’s completely changed my life! Although some days it’s hard to figure out what to make for dinner… :) Also, it’s been tough some days because I still have some dietary issues that I’m trying to figure out, but I love learning about the Paleo lifestyle!

  237. says

    I love the salmon pattie recipe from Mark Sisson’s The Primal Blueprint.
    Following your blog and love your recipes. Would love to have a new paleo book for my collection.

  238. Danielle says

    My favorite Paleo friendly recipe is waffles… I think I originally found the recipe on Mark’s Daily Apple: it is one egg, one banana, and one heaping spoon of almond butter I throw it in the waffle iron on a low setting. They’re perfect for a paleo friendly weekend breakfast.

  239. says

    I just checked this book out from the library to start reading yesterday! My favorite paleo recipe is bacon with blueberries mixed together!

  240. says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is anything having to do with a paleo egg muffin.

    Mix several eggs with chopped onions, green peppers and any type of meat.
    Pour into greased muffin cups and back for 30-40 mins.


  241. Jody Engstrom says

    I absolutely love a good green Thai curry with chicken and lots of veggies, served with cauliflower “rice”…knim!

  242. Meredith says

    My (and my 5 year old’s) favorite Paleo recipe is:

    6 eggs
    1 c. Frozen chopped spinach
    1/2 c. chopped vidalia onion
    1/2 c. diced tomatoes
    pinch of salt
    pinch of pepper

    mix all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender, then pour into greased mini-muffin tins (2/3 full) and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

    These are great for on the go breakfast on school mornings.

  243. says

    We’re SCD, so I’m always excited about a cookbook with recipes I can use. I have been sick today, so right now I would have to say my favorite Paleo dish is homemade chicken soup.

  244. says

    I have recently begun the journey of low carb/paleo. My favorite thing so far was a recipe my sister emailed me for cauliflower fried rice. It was delish!

  245. Kelley Owens says

    Looks wonderful! My husband and I are trying to do the P90X! Ha! Eating this way might be easier than the exercises!

  246. Kathleen says

    I have to be honest, I don’t know much about the Paleo way of eating. I am very interested tho, and would love to win this book to find out more!

  247. Elaine says

    1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, browned in 1 Tbsp coconut oil. Simmer for 30 minutes with 1 diced onion, 2 diced red bell peppers, 2 minced garlic cloves, 12 (or so) oz crushed tomatoes, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 2 tsp ground chili powder, 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro, 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.

  248. Jamee S says

    Cauliflower rice! I make that every week or so and change it up depending on the protein and veggies I want to use.

  249. says

    You almond flour pizza crust is one of my favorites so far, and once you have the crust down, pizza has endless possibilities!

  250. Holly Ellerton says

    My family loves cauliflower rice. We eat it quite often. I have my husband on a new eating regime and I think this would be great for new recipes for us to try. He’s lost 20# since July 27th! I would love to try her exercises too. I am always looking for new ones to add to my routines to keep from getting bored. This is very nice of you to offer a copy.

  251. Katherine says

    Gotta say that my favorite paleo recipe is actually your nettle pesto. I took a shine to nettles while living in Northern Ireland. I was walking and spied a pretty fuzzy leaf and touched it. Ow!! My friends laughed at me and showed me dock leaf for treating the sting. Soon after I harvested them from the woods and made them into soup. I love their flavor.

  252. Jaime Gilliam says

    My favorite paleo recipe is bacon. Not really a recipe but good in almost anything. I didn’t eat it for 5 years because pork used to give me headaches but I recently tested and it didn’t. So it’s my favorite! Would love Sarah’s book, I follow her blog too.

  253. Cindy says

    I am so glad I read about the Paleo diet & perused through Sarah’s blog because I think this is a great fit for my family. Amazing how you can read 1 article that can change your entire family! Thank you!

  254. Erin Tygart says

    My favorite Paleo meal is spaghetti squash with homemade marinara sauce and turkey meatballs. In fact, we’re having it tonight!

  255. Nora says

    I’ve been trying to “tempt” myself into eating Paleo — I know that carbs are an addiction for me and, even though I avoid gluten, it seems that almost ANY grain causes symptoms now. It seems that the “better” I am, the more sensitive my system is.

  256. Monica says

    I’m fairly newto grain free eating, but I have tried coconut flour bread several times with great results. I started with this recipe http://nourishedkitchen.com/coconut-flour-bread/
    and played around with it by adding an extra egg, making sure to whip the eggs until fluffy and adhusting the sweetness. I’ve added
    blueberries, cinnamon etc. to it depending on my mood.

  257. says

    I’m fairly new to Paleo eating and cooking and don’t have a favourite as yet but I’m so interested and excited about this whole concept of eating that I’m intending to do a lot more of it! I’m finding your website to be a great resource…thank you Elana.

  258. says

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for reviewing this book and the giveaway. This has been on my wish-list since before it came out! I am struggling to go 100% paleo, and could really use the assistance!

  259. Jenna says

    I love to make the salmon patties from your Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook. They are delicious!

  260. Eliana says

    coconut banana ice cream, made with just 2 ingredients! Or bone broth with zucchini noodles. I love it when you talk paleo on your blog!

  261. Kristi Neitman says

    Wow – thanks for the opportunity! I can’t wait to try your paleo bread – looks wonderful! My favorite (so far) has to be a simple Beet and Walnut Salad. …Simple, incredibly delicious – two super-foods in one with a protein punch – yum!

  262. brenda kidd says

    bacon wrapped sweet potato fries and bacon wrapped asparagus!! doesn’t get any better than this!

  263. Kara says

    My favorite recipe is Pumpkin pecan pancakes. I love anything that combines pumpkin and almond butter. It may just be the best combination ever.
    Here’s the recipe:
    Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes

    •1/2 cup pumpkin canned puree, (make sure it’s not pie filling)
    •1/2 cup almond butter
    •1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
    •2 eggs
    •2 tablespoon honey
    •1 tablespoon vanilla
    •1 teaspoon cinnamon
    •1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    1.Preheat a nonstick skillet on medium high heat.
    2.Combine all ingredients and mix well.
    3.Pour small round pancakes into skillet.
    4.Let them cook for about 2-3 minutes; pancakes will start to bubble and cook on the edges when they’re ready to flip, flip and cook another minute or two.

  264. Tracy W says

    I’ve just discovered the cauliflower rice! My kids devour it. And I’m loving the raw tapioca! I would love to have this book, as I’m in the midst of taking the family grain free and can use all of the help and inspiration that I can get! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your web site!

  265. says

    paleo tastes good! steak tips with bacon and onion, sweet potato fries and a big mixed salad would be a mightly fine meal any time.
    I’ve been wanting this book for ages!

  266. Neva says

    I have heard of this way of eating, but do not know much about it. A book would be wonderful. Already gluten free, so another step along the way. Thanks

  267. Farrah says

    I love eating the paleo way. My hubby and son are also fans. We live the strawberry sorbet and the chicken lettuce wraps!! I would love this book :)

  268. Danielle Heinlein says

    I frequent her website. I have the eating down and need to get more on track with exercise. My favorite recipe on her website is SO simple but amazingly flavorful! Its the bacon wrapped basil chicken! I LOVE IT! When I refer people to eating grain free, I refer them to your website, everyday paleo and home, health, happiness. xoxox.

  269. Cristina B says

    Hands down, our favourite Paleo recipe is cauliflower rice! Even our kids love it – I’ve caught one licking her plate :)

  270. Leonora Suglio says

    My favorite recipe so far so the Paleo Bread. But I admit I’m new to grain free cooking and have gotten stuck using just a few recipes so far. Looking forward to trying more.

  271. Martha York says

    I am not sure what paleo diets include. Since I have recently been reading your
    newsletters and preparing a few recipes , i have returned my body to a more
    balanced condition . Surgery and radiation had taken its toll on this 81 year old….

    MOTTO: Real food cooked in a real kitchen, which I have, for real people……

  272. Heidi Sloan says

    My favorite paleo recipes are Egg Cupcakes and Paleo pumpkin muffins. Would love to win the book!

  273. Tina B says

    We love zuchinni lasagna. I make a regular meat version, and substitute thin slices of zuchinni for the noodles

  274. says

    Thank you so much for this giveaway!!I love that this book is a manual for living the Paleo life.I am new to this and would love to have this to use as my guide getting started.

    My favorite recipe is the Chocolate Power Bar Balls. I will be soon trying the Paleo Bread as soon as I get the almond flour in.Thank you so much for your wonderful website.A great resource!!!

  275. Michele says

    I am not doing the Paleo diet but my husband has been doing it for over a year now. His favorite “invention” is his version of a pizza crust. The base is baked cauliflower, mashed with pureed mushrooms, leeks, and parm cheese. Then he spreads out the mixture and puts it all in the dehydrator for hours. He also uses the crusts as crackers or in place of tortilla chips.

  276. Peggy says

    My favorite recipe is Paleo Pizza! I was recently diagnosed with Celiac, so eating Paleo is even more impactful/important to me than it was in the past – I would love this book!

  277. Haley N says

    My favorite paleo would have to be your paleo bread recipe. I love bread but it’s so hard not being able to eat it. That’s why your recipe is great!

  278. says

    Would love to do more paleo. I tried this bread from brokeassgourmet.com
    It was far and away the easiest bread I ever made. It’s very tasty too.

    5 eggs (if you use jumbo-sized eggs, only use 4)
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 cup water
    2 cups flax seed meal
    1 tbsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 1/2″ x 11* or other large baking pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, oil and water together until light and fluffy (1-2 minutes). Add the flax seed meal, baking powder and salt and stir just until well-combined. Let sit to thicken for 3 minutes.
    Scrape batter into the center of the prepared pan and let it spread out (it likely won’t reach the edges).
    Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the top of the bread springs back when touched.
    Let cool before cutting into squares (or whatever shape you want.
    Serves 4-6.

  279. says

    One of my favorite side dishes is fennel bulb/apple slaw. So yummy and good for digestion, too!
    I also love making all manner of creamy soups and chowders using cauliflower as the base (I add homemade chicken stock and coconut milk if I’m doing a Paleo soup or grass-fed cream if I’m doing a Primal soup:)

  280. deb shepardson says

    Love the chicken soup with zucchini noodles!1 Delicious! I often use almond milk to replace the rich cream in soup recipes. Seeing all these great recipes makes me realize that I am not alone with my celiac disease.

  281. Joan Snyder says

    Have loved the carbo. recipes that you have provided. Am trying to eat more paleo as it is good for me and the environment.

  282. Susan R says

    I like a meatloaf with shredded veggies in it. (And I am heading over to look at this wonderful-sounding paleo bread recipe RIGHT NOW!)

  283. karla diaz says

    My favorite Paleo recipe so far is the paleo cookies on the Paleo Magazine website: orange almond paleo cookies. I am new to this lifestyle and am so happy to be able to have baked goods. I also love so many of your almond and coconut flour muffins/cupcakes! Yum! I would LOVE to win this cookbook to get some more fantastic ideas for this new adventure I am on!

  284. Kim says

    I was just getting to buy myself a copy. I checked a copy out of our local library and decided I had to have it.

    Pick me!

  285. Sirpa Kaajakari says

    Correction to the recipe too (sorry!): oil the oven dishes before putting the casserole in them to avoid sticking.

  286. Dena says

    My favorite paleo recipe is one we have for meatloaf :) it is delish and its from Everyday Paleo :)

    I also am in love with your Pancake’s and Pumpkin muffins! They are a staple at my house when we are craving something sweet!

  287. says

    I love mashed cauliflower as a substitute for mashed potatoes. Had it last night w/ your garlic-ginger bok choy and a nice ginger-marinated pork roast. Have really cut grains way back in my diet (not entirely going paleo, but close). Amazing how much better I feel! Your almond flour recipes are a life-saver!

  288. Jane M says

    This cookbook looks fabulous. I’m going to stop at the market and get some ground turkey right after work as I have about a dozen green peppers in my garden ready to be picked. This Stuffed Pepper recipe will be a perfect way to use some of them up.

    Thank you for your great blog; it is my first go-to place now for gluten free recipes (especially dessert!

  289. Carolina D. says

    Hard to pick a favorite, though we love cauliflower rice, coconut flour pancakes and homemade turkey meatballs with fresh marinara and zucchini noodles. Ok, that’s three, but eating this way is making such a difference in my life, and I love food! If I don’t win the cookbook, I will buy it; it looks fantastic! Thanks for another great giveaway, Elana!

  290. Linda says

    The Chicken ‘noodle’ soup was a great addition to Soup season… which is right around the corner! :) The book sounds fantastic, I’ve been curious to learn more about eating a paleo diet, sounds like a great book.

  291. Heylen says

    This sounds like a great book to add to any Mom’s library! Thank you for highlighting it Ms. Elana.

  292. Sandra Morris says

    Knowledge is power… especially when it comes to learning about a healthy way of life and eating.

  293. Jody says

    I am in love with your paleo bread. I just made it for the first time today and my whole family went nuts (almonds)! I am new to paleo and am trying to gather recipes my entire family will enjoy. This looks like just the ticket! Thank you!

  294. wendy w says

    simple braised greens,i though sometimes i change things up and saute onion then add mustard and honey. thanks elana for all you do, you’re our #1 go to for baking especially!

  295. Sirpa Kaajakari says

    My favorite paleo style recipe would be an adaptation from a Finnish traditional cabbage casserole.

    1 head of cabbage
    1 lb ground meat/and or a bunch of wild mushrooms
    1 carrot
    olive oil
    sea salt to taste
    (pepper to taste)
    Lingonberries or cranberries mashed with a fork

    fry the thinly chopped cabbage in olive oil in a frying pan. Move the cabbage to a pot with boiling water with sea salt for 20 minutes or until the cabbage ja softened. Fry the meat and/or mushrooms in the pan as well, add pepper, salt to taste.
    Drain te cabbage, save the water you boiled it in. Mix the ingredients together and move to glass or ceramic baking dish/dishes. Pour a little bit of the saved water (1 cupful or so) on top and bake for an hour in 400 degrees. If it gets too dry youbcan add water in between. Serve with crushed lingonberries or cranberries.

  296. Tonya Adams says

    Oh my I would love this so much. I have hashimoto’s and just started eating paleo and have had this cookbook on my amazon wish list since the beginning! My favorite Paleo recipe came from Sarah’s website. It is green chicken chili soup! I’ve got a batch in the freezer right now and I actually wilt some kale in there just for fun!

    Tonya :)


  297. Lindsay Cowley says

    Still learning about Paleo so looking forward to trying your recipes and hopefully the ones in the book too.

    : )

  298. Jan Bostic says

    one of our favorite paleo recipes is bison chili (or can use turkey or grass-fed beef). found it on a paleo blog but now can’t remember where…

    1 tbsp oil
    1 3/4 lb bison
    1/2 onion chopped
    2 1/2 cups celery chopped
    2 garlic cloves
    12oz salsa (i usually make a salsa)
    1 8oz can tomatoes
    2 tsp cumin
    2 tsp chili powder
    2 tsp thyme leaves
    2 tsp salt
    green chiles

    saute over medium heat the onion, celery, and garlic until onion is translucent. Add meat, cumin, thyme, and chili powder and stir until bison is cooked. Pour salsa, tomatoes, and salt on top. Add 1/4 cup of mild green chilis. Let simmer an hour.

    One of my staples is Mark Sisson’s primal breakfast hash… with beets and turnips and a fried egg on top. Yummo!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win the book. I’ve been eyeing it up on Amazon!

  300. says

    I tried slow-cooked tongue tacos a couple of weeks ago. The recipe was on Food Lovers’ Primal Palate (I think, anyway). I’d love a copy of this book!

  301. Kimberley King says

    Mine has to be some sort of meaty frittata… it goes with anything that may be growing in the garden or lingering in the fridge. With some sort of ferment on the side! Versatile.

  302. Sally Nance says

    Speaking of cauliflower rice, I also love mashed cauliflower! Just steam cauliflower in boiling water a few minutes until fork tender. Drain excess water, add a little butter or grapeseed oil, salt and pepper and blend with handheld mixer. Really yummy!

  303. Lori says

    My favorite paleo recipe is a ground meat hash with kale, onion, garlic, winter squash, broccoli, any fresh herbs and sea salt.

  304. Sandi says

    Steamed mussels in a white wine dill sauce, served beside mushroom stuffed tomatoes. So delicious!

    I know a lot of people say it, but going paleo was one of the best decisions I’ve made. And the food is great!

  305. Tonya says

    I have recently started eating Paleo and my two favorite recipes are Paleo Spaghetti(grass feed ground beef, spaghetti sauce (sugar free) and zucchini or spaghetti squash)and Paleo Fudge (dates, cocoa, and pecans chopped in a food processor then rolled into balls or bars). Yummy!

  306. Lily Hill says

    Thank you, Elana for your recipes for healthy eating and gluten-free recipes. I especially appreciate the use of almond and coconut flours.

  307. Nora says

    My favorite paleo recipe is coconut milk ice cream. (ok, I know they didn’t have ice cream makers back then but…)

  308. Lily Hill says

    Thank you, Elana, for promoting healthy eating and gluten-free recipes. I especially appreciate the emphasis on almond and coconut flours as substitutes for other gluten flours.

  309. Peggy Parsons says

    I have “The Paleo Diet” book, but I have not
    heard of the Everyday Paleo book. I am looking
    forward to learning more of this book.

  310. Monique says

    My fav is chicken cauli fried rice. Tastes like the real thing!! So yummy!
    Thanks for the chance. Would love to get this book. Always need new inspiration.


  311. says

    This book looks fantastic, and I am going straight away to look it up in my library in case I don’t win;) I am loving the new Paleo bread recipe you have shared with us. Thank you again for a fabulous giveaway.

  312. Kerry says

    I am excited to try your recently posted Paleo Bread recipe – I am completely new to the Paleo diet, so excited to try some things out! I have been off gluten and dairy for 3 months now, and have lost over 25 pounds – so I’m excited to keep up the good work and good eating!

  313. Janie Starr says

    I love cauliflower and am always looking for new ways to indulge in its very own rich buttery flavor. Hurray for the Paleo cauliflower recipe.

  314. deb shepardson says

    Love the chicken soup with zucchini noodles in the soup. I would love to get this book to improve my lifestyle.

  315. PAT says

    I found that the paleo concepts of healthy eating greatly resembles the same premise of EATING RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE. I am blood type O and have found that many disorders/health isuues I have are because of the wrong foods I eat based on my ancestry. Many doctors disagree with the premise of the paleo diet, but there are truly many benefits. I would love to have this book to use in conjunction with EATING RIGHT 4 YOUR TYPE.

  316. ChandraT says

    My favorite paleo recipe is Paleo shepherd’s pie! I make this about once a week in the Fall and Winter.

  317. Tara says

    I love the Pumpkin Cake recipe. It is so delicious. It tastes like pumpkin pie without the slimy pumpkin pie texture. It’s a moist and fluffy cake.

  318. Barbara Lagan says

    my journey into Paleo eating has just begun, about a month ago, tho I am scattered in what I need to eat, I am feeling better, a bit more energy, sleeping better, I am a senior and have tried many eating regimines, mostly to loose weight, that is second to what I want with this, and that is to feel better, less allergies, better complexion, all around being happier and satisfied with what I eat. that is a hard one, always being hungry, this diet is helping that.

  319. says

    It’s been surprisingly easy to live Paleo in the land of vegetarians. We are posted in India with the foreign service. Coconut abounds and we were able to find an atheist meat vendor who will sell us pork and beef.
    I’m a recovering sugar junkie, so I am slowly, but enthusiastically, embracing the Paleo life. My husband has lost 70 lbs. I am Celiac so I am already tiny; it’s just the next step to move away from coke and rice.
    My favorite Paleo recipe to date has been the orange carrot cake I made for my husband’s birthday.
    I am allergic to eggs, so I would be really excited to have a Paleo cookbook to give me ideas that I might be able to revise egg free.

  320. Pamela Kurtz says

    I adore both the Eggplant Parmesan and Chicken Parmesan recipes. BETTER than the originals which I would never have dreamed could be replaced. I also love the tart crusts, crackers and the absolutely necessary shortbread cookies!

  321. Michelle says

    I have been reading about the Paleo diet and I think it would be great for me giving my health issues. I don’t have a favorite recipe yet.

  322. Sherri says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is braised greens. I crave them and fix them at least once a week (sometimes twice)! I would LOVE to win this book!

  323. Tami Jo Eaton says

    I love the broccoli pizza. Once I tried roasted broccoli, I never looked back and then to combine it with pizza is Yum!!

  324. says

    I’m new to the Paleo Diet but desire a better way of living for myself and my entire family. I’m looking forward to finding kid friendly recipes and taking the next step to a healthier lifestyle.

    ALL FOR!!

    I would love

  325. says

    i haven’t had pizza in YEARS and last weekend i made myself a pizza with your recipe from your book Elana and it was DELICIOUS!!
    i felt like a real human eating some really good and naughty food, i have to tell ya.
    And today i’m making your peppermint patty recipe. i’m a happy camper!

  326. alain says

    thanks for holding this awesome giveaway! My fav paleo recipe is coconut macaroons made with almond flour, coconut butter and stevia!

  327. Lavendar says

    I’m just getting into learning about Paleo. I have Mark’s book and cookbook and I would love to have this one. I’m not sure if it’s Paleo, but my absolute favorite recipe is your Black and White Cake. It makes the best brownies ever and has significantly helped to decrease mine and hubby’s sugar intake. I tell everyone about it!

  328. Linda says

    I finally have all of the ingredients to make your Paleo bread recipe and plan to do that tonight. I’m also a big fan of cauliflower rice.

  329. Anita says

    Definitely would love, love, love a book! Elana, I follow sooooo many of your suggestions and recipes. Thank you! -justme Anita

  330. Jenny Haller says

    My fav Paleo recipe is simply: Grass Fed beef burgers with grilled red onions and a huge scoop of homemade guacamole!

  331. Sarah says

    Fave dinner…. ground beef fried with onions and bacon fat smothered with hot sauce and yellow mustard, buttered thyme rutabaga and buttered broccoli. Mmmmmmm.

  332. natalie,lmt says

    I would live to learn mhow to cook more paleo meals! I just learned, after years of nausea and unexplained illnesses, that I am sensitive to gluten. This would be tremendous! Thanks!

  333. Miranda says

    I’ve been following Paleo for about 5 weeks now and love it. I love to make homemade almond butter and mayo. I also like the cauliflower “mashed potato” trick! I would love to try some recipes out of her book.

  334. Aura says

    Oh, I would love to win her book…I am a fan! I love your chicken soup with zucchini noodles, though it’s hard to pick an all time favorite with all the fabulous paleo recipes out there!

  335. Sandra Lee says

    Looks like a very interesting book. I’ve been a healthy eater all my life and I’m trying to incorporate good eating habits for my family. I would love to win this book.

  336. says

    Well, we often eat pretty close to paleo at my house, since we’re gluten-free and avoid processed foods. I guess my favorite Paleo-ish thing is massaged kale salads, with plenty of avocado, nuts or seeds, and citrus.

  337. Heidi says

    Ohhh, the Meat Candy is to-die-for, except I use ground turkey in place of pork due to allergy.

    Try it!

  338. says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is not a recipe at all, but rather, just a formula for putting together a great, satisfying, healthy meal whilst using my hunter-gatherer instincts. We’ve got chickens so many of our meals focus around eggs. The other night, here is what got served, and man, was it good.

    Bacon (mmmm! who doesn’t love bacon!)
    Broccoli cooked up in the leftover bacon fat
    Soft boiled eggs
    Cherry tomatoes, my favorite, somehow they still taste like fruit
    Sea salt

    If I’d had lettuce on hand, this would have been a salad, tossed with a bit of lemon juice, horse radish and Stevia. This hunter gather had apparently already gathered all her lettuce so it was served as is. Other yummy additions include almonds, raisins, perhaps a bit of cubed raw cheddar cheese, and anything on hand, really. Yum!!!!

  339. says

    I’ve been reading about the paleo diet and want to learn more about it. I would love reading this book and applying to my way of life. I love to try the paleo bread by Elana plus our family really enjoys cauliflower rice. Thanks Elana for offering this book.

  340. Petra says

    I’ve been eating Paleo for a little over a year and love it. One of my favorites are the egg cupcakes!

  341. April Rose says

    My favorite recipe so far is Elana’s Pumpkin Bars. They are so tasty and full of good stuff.

    I am partial to grilled chicken with grilled veggies, but that’s not much of a recipe. lol.

  342. Heather Obrien says

    I have recently was told by my doctor to be gluten free. I have been trying recipes and adapting other recipes. I’d love to really eat “clean” and paleo in conjunction with the new g-f regime!

  343. alicia says

    I love the walnut date balls.

    5 dates, pits removed
    1 cup walnuts or pecans
    1/2 cup macadamia nuts
    2 table spoons coconut oil
    1/4 shredded coconut

    Mix all above in food processor.

    Put batter into bowl.

    Form into round balls.

    Roll balls in more shredded coconut.



  344. Shannessy says

    I love the paleo bread! It’s my favorite GF bread recipe!! And I’m sure I would LOVE the book!!! :)

  345. Kathy says

    I would love to have this new book on the Paleo Lifestyle. I recently read Nora Gesdgaudas’ book Primal Body, Primal Mind. I was vegan for a year and a half and my body did not feel right. Also, my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis was worse. Now that I am gluten free and eating meat I am regaining my health. Thanks for offering this book on your Giveaway. If I don’t win it, I will definately purchase it! Thanks Elana. ( By the Way, I love your new improved bread recipe).

  346. Kathy says

    Hi Elana……found your website thru “The Pioneer Woman” and have started cooking from your recipes. I love everything and never thought I would. I am 60 and have lost 22lbs. already and I can out exercise some of my much younger friends…….great food, great sleep and great exercise!!!! Thank you so much for all you post.

  347. Alexia Olson says

    Two years ago, after spending a few long years as a progressively unhealthy vegetarian, I began transitioning intuitively towards a paleo diet. While I am by no means all the way there, I aim to be, and I am watching a return of my health the closer I follow a paleo diet.
    My son has also benefiited from a diet that is most-of-the-way paleo, and I have watched his health/neurological issues become much less pronounced.
    Everyday Paleo would be a much loved and well used cookbook in my home. I follow Sarah online, but would love to have a hard copy of her recipes and health advice.

    Alexia Olson

  348. Alicia says

    Oh I would love, love, love this book! My favorite paleo recipe is my moak cauliflower mashed potatoes.

    Steam 1 head of cauliflower
    Process in a food processor with the juice of 1 lemon and leaves from 2 sprigs if rosemary and sea salt to taste.

    This is comfort food to me!

  349. Suzanne Rossignol says

    I’ve enjoyed your recipes and web site for years and would love to win this giveaway! I run a home based daycare and have come to your web site for several Gluten Free recipes as I have a child in my group that has to live with this allergy. His Mom sends him every morning with a smoothie and Mom shared the site she had found the recipe from and I”ve been enjoying them ever since. Here’s the link to my fave Paleo Smoothie Recipe ever since I was given it!


    Hope I win :)

  350. Sherry says

    I have been Paleo since Jan 2011. I will never go back to the old way of eating. My all time favorite Paleo/Primal recipe is a slightly modified version of Elana’s Breakfast Bars. Everyone I have served them to has loved them.

    4. Mix in coconut, sunflower seeds, almond slivers, chocolate chips and raisins
    5. Grease an 8×8 baking dish with coconut oil
    6. Press the dough into the baking dish, wetting your hands with water to help pat the dough down evenly
    7. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes

  351. Alana says

    My favorite is the paleo bread, I actually just made it last night and it turned out awesome, thanks for the recipe!

  352. Alyssa says

    I love the Butternut Squash Soup recipe! So warm and cozy for the fall .. and delicious too. I would love winning a copy of this book to learn more, what a great giveaway!!

  353. Jenny says

    My fave Paleo/primal recipe is definitely the cauliflower rice! I’ve been making it in my cast iron pan with that morning’s leftover bacon fat and it is *divine*. This is one of those recipes where I don’t feel like I’m “missing out” on the “real” thing (rice), I find it to be a much tastier alternative and in no way miss rice!!! Bonus: you won’t feel bloated like you might from eating a rice-heavy dish. Love it!

  354. says

    I just made a really yummy beanless chili with pumpkin and grass-fed ground beef! Sauté one onion and some garlic in coconut oil or animal fat. Add ground beef and stir until cooked through. Add 1 chopped, small pumpkin (or other winter squash), 1 c homemade broth, and one large can of diced or crushed tomatoes. Simmer until squash is tender. Spices: chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder. Garnish with Avacado!

  355. Mary says

    I really love the Stuffed Peppers you have on here, Elana! You don’t even miss the rice or other grain! YUM! I have blood sugar issues and would really love a good Paleo book for ideas and more creative recipes than I have tried. I would LOVE winning a copy of this book!

  356. Margie Nagle says

    I have been eating Paleo for one month now and two weeks ago I stumbled onto Sarah’s Everyday Paleo blog, which I thoroughly enjoy! My favorite Paleo recipe is her Caribbean Stew, which we are having for dinner this evening. I decided to pursue a Paleo lifestyle as I am gluten and dairy intolerant, so it just makes sense for me to eat this way. Of course, I have to give credit where credit is due. I had never heard of the Paleo diet until Elana mentioned it in one of her post a while back where she referenced Mark Sisson’s Daily Apple blog. It has taken me all this time to finally commit to a Paleo lifestyle, but now that I have, I know it is perfect for me.

  357. Tamzin Farmer says

    Elana you have really changed our lives around here! We are a much healthier happier family and we enjoy ALL of your recipes! Thank you so much for all of the hard work and effort you put into this blog and your books. My “go to” recipes are your protein bars and a simple omelet with saute kale, YUM!

  358. Deborah Leiendecker says

    Two of my favorites from this cookbook are the “nutty cookies” and they “egg cupcakes”, my kids even rave about the cookies being good & they are so healthy & guilt-free!
    The egg cupcakes I made a recipe batch on Monday & freeze them to eat all morning long before we head out the door for school:)

  359. Maggie says

    I have been wanting to buy this book for a while now! My favorite paleo recipe is your chicken picatta and spagetti squash as a main dish and chocolate biscotti for dessert. Yum!

  360. Laura says

    My favorite paleo recipe is beef stew- complete with simmering the beef bones in a pot all day. Add in some veggies and whatever spices I happen to have on hand, and I have a great, easy dinner!

  361. JANE MACRAE says

    I just want to say thank you for the amazing blog and well developed

    recipes. They are helping me keep my popularity with my grandchildren!

  362. says

    Sarah Fragoso was my first trainer at Cross Fit. I’m so happy you’re promoting her book. So I should have a book by now, right? I don’t. but would love one. She has so many good recipes but by far my favorite is the spinach and sweet potato salad. I’m actually not sure it’s in her book but it’s certainly on her blog. It is an amazing salad. My husband ate it the other night and said… “i think this is my new favorite salad” it’s that good!
    I hope I win!
    FYI – I just made the chocolate banana popsicles yesterday for the kids. They were a huge hit. I didn’t add the extra sweetner (was it stevia?) but I had super ripe bananas. They were sweet enough without.

  363. Sandy says

    This book is on my “Buy” list. My favorite Paleo recipe is pizza made with shredded eggplant for the crust. Top off with sauce, some onion and green peppers. Yum!

  364. Rachel says

    AGHHHH! I am so excited about learning more! I went to the library yesterday to find this exact book and guess what!? NO GO! I now have the sample on my nookbook but havent bought it yet. Ill keep my fingers crossed to be a winner before I buy it. I am making the Paleo bread this weekend also since this week is crammed with CE classes.

  365. Lorri says

    Hi there, Elana. Looks like a wonderful book to help me get started with Paleo. We need more books like this and stories of success for those of us new to Paleo. Thanks!

  366. Stacey Zoller says

    The Paleo bread you posted is on my list of recipes to try. I am just getting started on paleo. I would love to have Sarah’s book!

  367. says

    My favorite is simply grilled veggies and a lovely piece of meat. I’ve recently gone Paleo and it’s working well. sign me up for that book! Thanks for the giveaway.

  368. Katie says

    Hi Elana,

    I have been eating paleo for about 5 months and it has made a big difference both in my health and well being. I especially love your chicken strips w almond flour breading, your almond pulp herb crackers, and your basic almond flour biscuits, which can be flavored in so many ways! I would love this book for more recipe ideas and support.

  369. Wendy says

    I love the Chicken Meatballs. I’m new to the Paleo diet so I’m looking forward to all the new recipes and health!

  370. johanna says

    I am striving to be totally paleo, and this book sounds fantastic. I am going to get a copy and hope it helps me reach my goal. My fav recipe would have to be grilled veggies – asparagus, zucchini, onions, fennel, etc.

  371. Darci Hawxhurst says

    My favorite paleo recipe, and that of my family, is “cauliflower mash” – I take one head of cauliflower and steam it, then put it in the food processor with a stick of butter and blend until creamy. Top with salt, pepper, and a dash of parsley. This is a total winner with a beef roast and broth or with a roasted chicken!

  372. says

    I love the breads and muffins made with coconut flour, and I make a wonderful coconut oil candy that I eat every day with raw chocolate powder and hemp protein powder. Wonderful! And good for you.

  373. Christine says

    I’m not sure I have a favorite paleo recipe yet, as I’m just beginning to look into it (I can’t wait to make your paleo bread, hopefully this weekend.) One recipe I do like that I think might fit as paleo is a simple baked chicken nuggets, using an egg and almond flour to bread the tenders. Add steamed broccoli, and it makes a great comfort meal (at least for us.)

  374. Jessica says

    My favorite recipe is grilled butterflied whole chicken, sauteed kale, and baked sweet potatoes. YUM.

  375. says

    Right now my favorite recipe is your Apricot Power Bars, but I think that’s going to change as soon as I try the Paleo Bread!

  376. Diane M. says

    I actually just requested Everday Paleo through my library since I am eager to learn more about the Paleo diet. I am excited to try your Paleo bread recipe as well.

  377. Erron says

    My family loves stuffed peppers. I now make with eggplant, turkey, yellow squash, garlic, cayenne and homemade broth. Love the bread recipie too, I have made it several times now but have modified to balance the ‘flours’ and we don’t eat honey for now. Has come out fantastic. Thanks! You rock!

  378. Tori Eny says

    Yea I have within the week been catching up on Paleo eating. I just bought the last of the ingrredients for the Paleo Bread Yumm I can’t wait to have real bread for sandwiches and toast.

  379. says

    I’m just starting my paleo diet journey and the results are fantastic so far!

    I’d LOVE to win your cookbook to help me embrace this way of life and share it with others!

    Thanks for all you do!

  380. Anastasia says

    My favorite paleo recipe is your broccoli pizza with almond flour crust. I never thought of broccoli on a pizza until I read your cookbook. It’s fantastic and your crust is the best.

  381. Mona says

    I don’t have a favorite paleo recipe because i’ve only just heard about paleo. I am very interested in learning more about it. I’ve lost 250 lbs and want to learn more about the way I should be eating.

  382. Hannah says

    I was just searching on your site yesterday for resources for the paleo lifestyle. My naturopath is recommending I eat more along those lines so I am looking for more info and inspiration.. Not sure where to start. Eating gluten free, with other foods to avoid as well is not new to me, so I don’t necessarily want resources that are for the beginner healthy food eater, if you will. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book!

  383. Sarah Shaffer says

    We LOVE the chicken (sometimes ground turkey) meatballs!! I love that they can be put on spagetti squash one night and warmed up in the crockpot with homemade bbq sauce and served on paleo bread with broccoli slaw the next night. Uh oh, my tummy just rumbled! Hope I win, hope I win, hope I win…..

  384. Becca says

    I made quick and creamy chicken stew a week or two ago. It was delicious. One of my favorite recipes right now. :)

  385. Holly S. says

    I made the paleo bread just this past week and I love it! I did not have a food processor or the size loaf pan that was suggested in the recipe. I just did it all by hand in a bowl and just used a glass loaf pan and it came out so good! I would love to win the Paleo cookbook manual give away!Thankyou Elana for everything you do !!!

  386. may says

    sea salt and vinegar kale chips are my favorite my recipe. i make a whole head of kale, eat the whole thing myself, and still crave more!

  387. Heather Cramer says

    I borrowed this book from the library and loved it!!! Her meatloaf recipe is very easy and sneaks in a lot of other veggies my kids don’t even notice.

    I really try to follow the paleo diet. I am not perfect, but this book makes family cooking a little easier. Would love to win this great book!!

    Heather Cramer

  388. Alison says

    I am interested to know more about living that kind of lifestyle. I hope I win the book, but I’ll be checking it out either way.

  389. Robin says

    I made your Paleo Bread the other day and we are VERY happy! My family cannot have yeast so we really missed GF bread. I was able to send a sunbutter and jelly sandwich on paleo bread for his lunch today at school. He’s happy!

    Thanks Elana!

  390. Tanya Sheldon says

    I have followed Sarah’s blog since I found out about through doing Crossfit! NONE of her recipes have ever done me wrong. They have all been simply delicious!!
    One of our favorites are the Chicken & Pesto Stacks! So easy, sooo yummy and so fully of nutrition!
    Thanks for sharing your healhty lifestyle with us Sarah!

  391. Yulia says

    My family likes chicken “noodle” soup from your site.
    I would LOVE to have this book, as I’d like to learn more about Paleo diet and lifestyle. Very interesting!

  392. Breanna says

    My fav paleo treat is a juicy bison burger on a bed of mixed greens topped with avocado and tomato! yum!

  393. says

    I went GRAIN-FREE several months ago after my naturopath suggested going gluten free. My FAVORITE Paleo recipe, is Elana’s Paleo Bread. I even posted a link to this site with the bread recipe in my latest post.
    The Paleo bread is the BEST bread I’ve ever eaten. Wheat or no wheat. It ROCKS!!!

  394. says

    Oooh, what a great looking book! Our favorite Paleo recipe is the energy bars with almond butter and coconut oil from Mark’s Daily Apple. Yum!

  395. Maria Sievert says

    Love the Sarah’s Thai “No Peanut” Sauce as well as her meatloaf and pot roast rub…so many!

  396. Kathy says

    My favorite recipe is going to be your paleo bread. The description of it was wonderful. Your work with gluten-free bread item replacements is so useful. I can see how to easily cut way back on bread. Done. Not even too hard. But much harder is to see how to completely eliminate it, or to even want to completely eliminate it. There are a few times where bread and bread-related items just hit the spot, or there is no substitute for them. Anyhow, this bread is my favorite recipe, and I haven’t even had a chance to try it yet. I can tell just by your photo.

  397. says

    hi elana…i am just trying to make the transition to a paleo diet and could use a guide..unemployed right now so not buying books much….i would LOVE to have that book….so far my favorite paleo recipe is your paleo bread! soooooo good! thanks for the opportunity, here ;-)

  398. Kim says

    I added 1/2 lb. of crispy cooked nitrate free bacon to your gluten free chocolate chip cookies recipe. WOW! They were amazing! It’s been repeated several times. :)

  399. Julia says

    Today we are making zucchini bread! It is so yummy with coconut oil spread on it while it’s still hot from the oven. I am trying to eat healthier and would love a copy of this book, thanks!

  400. Megan Doherty says

    I would love to read the Everyday Paleo! The more I follow a paleo diet, the better I feel overall. The exercise information would be brilliant to read about as well. I have a few favorite paleo recipes…I really enjoyed your paleo bread recipe last week as well as zucchini noodles (instead of pasta noodles) for paleo spaghetti. I’m a frequent visitor to Mark’s Daily Apple and I’ve tested a few of his condiments and by far, the ketchup is the best! It’s a great alternative to the sugar/hfcs stuff you get at the grocery store!

  401. Robin Brawn says

    Chicken meatballs sound absolutely yummy! I am finishing a 21 day cleanse on The Clean Program and will be looking forward to trying some new gluten free recipes.

  402. darkhorse says

    Mmmm…going to have to try the Paleo Bread…a great quick & easy Paleo meal is a stir fry…yum! Thanks Elana!

  403. Meredith says

    I love the DF chocolate mousse! Will be trying the stuffed pepper recipe as well as the chicken soup with zucchini noodles. Yummy!! Thank you for the generous giveaway!

  404. says

    I really want to try Elana’s Paleo Bread recipe! I love bread and am having trouble finding bread that doesn’t bother me (too many gf refined flours).

    I am getting a new oven in a couple weeks and this recipe will be one of the first I try. I also love Elana’s scones!

    I recently discovered Sarah’s website and her cookbook is on my list to buy!

  405. Cindy says

    I’ve been making the Peleo Bread since you posted it a few weeks ago and we’re enjoying that. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love the Paleo pizza crust with your almond flour.
    Sticking to a gluten free diet is manageable if I can get a pizza fix periodically as it allows me to “really chew” something subtantive! Hooray for that recipe. I’d love to read the Paleo book for all it’s guidance.

  407. gail rosenfeld says

    I love the broccoli pizza, but prefer to add soft and hard goat cheeses instead of the cheddar and mozzarella (easier to digest than cows milk for me). Also, good with fresh herbs (basil or oregano)….

  408. Terry says

    I have never personally made anything on the Paleo diet. I would love this cookbook so that I can delve deeper into this lifesyle.

  409. Lisa DeSimone says

    I’ve just started reading about Paleo/Primal eating on the advice of my trainer. I’d love to get a book full of recipes. One of my favorites so far is flounder baked/steamed in foil — so tender and easy, with no clean up required!

  410. Jennifer Stephenson says

    favorite paleo dish- chicken curry served over roasted slivered red cabbage (as noodles)

  411. says

    One of two of my favorite paleo meals is: Pre-cooked chicken strips from Trader Joes tossed in a pan with artichoke, sundried tomatoes, and roasted peppers. I make enough for 2 lunches. I also make a mixture with ground turkey, asperagas, smashed tomatoes, and peppers. Just brown the turkey and add other ingredients toss in pan. That also makes a good lunch to heat up.

  412. says

    another favorite recipe is paleo pancakes-
    2 mashed up bananas, 1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter and 1 cage free egg…. mix the 3 ingredients together and drop the batter onto a skillet and flip like regular pancakes. serve with fresh berry puree… delish!

  413. Maranda F. says

    Love your site and would love to try out some new paleo recipes. My fav paleo recipe would probably be simple Wild Salmon Basil Burgers.

  414. Jamie says

    I would love to have a copy of that! I’m very interested in the Paleo diet, as I have found out I have numerous food allergies in the last few years and it is a struggle to eat healthy and feel good. Cooking is my passion, so I’m always searching for recipes that are new, health and okay for me to eat.

  415. September says

    Elana’s Pantry is a great resource for recipes, and this book would be a wonderful addition to my kitchen library!

  416. Dominika says

    Growing up I ate a lot of potatoes so using cauliflower is a wonderful replacement for me and my family. I also love Elana’s Caluiflower Rice!

  417. Maria says

    I love to make homemade spaghetti sauce with grassfed ground beef served over either sauteed zucchini or spaghetti squash.

  418. Kelly says

    My favorite paleo recipe is Sarah’s pecan crusted chicken…oh and the bacon with brussel sprouts….both are incredible!

  419. Betty says

    One of my favorite paleo recipes is just an egg bake or crustless quiche. I make these weekly with whatever I have on hand, eggs, veggies, cream or coconut milk. Prep time is so minimal and with a salad, it makes a great meal! My whole family of 6 (and one on the way) is striving to be paleo. I would love this book!

    • Concetta says

      Agreed! Crustless quiches are a must on Sundays in our household.

      I have been reading Elana’s blog to feed my curiousity with the Paleo lifestyle. I have been gluten-free since July and a lot of the natural inclination is to find “substitutes” for everything, but I like the way the Paleo lifestyle embraces the difference.

  420. Penny says

    Looks great. I rely on your recipes and the info over at Marksdailyapple.com as my go-to diet and cooking resources, along with a few other blogs. It would be great to have another book to consult. Please include me in the giveaway!

  421. Stephanie KL says

    Elana — I tried your Paleo Bread recipe and it is now a must make. We have avoided other bread recipes because they crumbled when making a sandwich. The Paleo Bread holds together well. An occasional sandwich is now in our future. Thanks.

  422. says

    My favorite paleo recipe is:
    chicken breasts cut into strips, layered with with a few pieces of fresh basil (green or purple) and sauteed spinach (with EVOO & garlic), a few sun dried tomatoes and wrapped in bacon. bake until the chicken is cooked (varies depending on oven and sizes of chicken) and broil to make bacon crisp. serve with cauliflower rice. yum!

  423. Kathie says

    I’ve had the Paleo Bread every morning this week for breakfast. YUM. It’s a great pre-run snack as well!

  424. Quinlyn says

    I loved the Paleo bread. I felt less guilty eating this than I did with the arrowroot-based version! Thanks Elana!

  425. Jenny says

    I am trying to make the move to primal. I am going to try Ashley’s bean-less chili from these comments. (Thank you Ashley) I have found no legumes to be one of the hardest things to replace in going primal.

  426. Stacy says

    I don’t have any recipes. I would love to learn more about eating a Paleo diet and that is why I am interested in getting the book. On my list to try is the bread recipe that you gave a week ago but I haven’t had a chance to make it yet.

  427. Jane H says

    My family and I love the stuffed peppers. They are so easy to make and super tasty.

    My husband and I are wanting to start on the Paleo Diet and would love to learn more about it.

  428. Isi says

    I would love to win the Everyday Paleo to learn more about it. I don’t have a favorite receipe as I am not that familar with it. My daughter has been doing Paleo from a different author, I think. (funds are limited so have not bought a book) I do ask her lots of questions regarding Paleo, so winning this book would be perfect. Always looking for more ways to eat better and exercise, sooooo please pick me.

  429. Cathy K says

    I have been curious about the Paleo Diet. I have seen your discussions about it and how it has made a difference in your life. I would love to see her take on the Paleo Diet.
    Thanks for all you do for me and my family. Cathy

  430. Julia says

    Your almond flour crackers, in every incarnation! They provide the crunch that I miss the most being mostly paleo/grain-free.

  431. Natasha says

    Let’s see.. I’d have to say your Paleo Bread… it was a close one though, since I absolutely love your Apricot Power Bars, it’s just, some days… I really miss bread heh.

    Thanks :D

  432. says

    one of my favorite paleo desserts are fruit sorbets!
    I’ve heard a lot about that dieat, but don’t really know much about it.
    The book will be a great tool to learn more about it!!
    Thanks for the giveaway!


  433. Barb says

    my favorite Paleo recipe is your Pina colda ice cream – tried it and it was delish…my kids LOVED it!

  434. Vivian says

    I actually have this book and love it. Every recipe is a keeper. I would love to win one for my daughter!

    • Andrea says

      I have also purchased the book….so many great recipies to still try. Yesterday I made the egg cupcakes (fabulous!!!) and tonight I am trying the Salmon Cakes.

  435. Angela says

    I drool over your site all the time! I’m so glad I found it :)

    My favorite recipe so far has been Mark’s Primal Meatballs (as I have yet to try any of yours!)

  436. Jenna says

    I’ve been curious about the paleo diet, so this sounds like a great resources to find out more about it.

  437. Daniela Tanner says

    It seems with the coming of fall, I will be ready to do some more cooking. This would be a great asset!

  438. Beth says

    I have to say that my favourite Paleo recipe is your Paleo bread.
    We made it last weekend and it was a huge hit. Will definitely have to make 2 loaves next time.

  439. Kendra s. says

    I love using mashed cauliflower as a side instead os potatoes, it is a great fake out for those who swear they hate cauliflower.

  440. says

    This is a tough one, because I have not tried your paleo bread yet, and I am thinking that would be a favorite! But since I haven’t tried it yet, I am going to have to go with any of your power bars. They are great for a portable workout snack. Thanks for the giveaway!

  441. Amy says

    My favorite – super simple – Paleo recipe is to put four chicken thighs – with skin and bones – into my cast iron skillet. I brush them with olive oil, and liberally coat two with Penzey’s Northwoods Fire Seasoning and two with Penzey’s Northwoods Seasoning.

    Bake in 425 degree oven for 42-45 minutes.

    That’s the same temp/time for me to roast broccoli on a baking sheet at the same time.

    We eat this meal at least three times a week.

  442. Ashley says

    My favorite Paleo recipe is beanless chili: grass fed ground beef, zucchini, onion, Serrano pepper, crushed tomatoes, cumin, chili powder, cayenne and salt and pepper. Brown the meat, chop up the veggies, dump it all in a slow cooker and cook for 2-4 hours.

    As I’ve leaned more and more toward Paleo living, I’m loving all the food experiments that come up. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to just have some recipes on hand so you can whip something up and eat it without anxiety and wasted food.

  443. Michelle says

    I just printed out Sarah’s Thai green curry recipe, and I’m hoping it will be one of our new favorite paleo meals. Our overall favorite paleo meal is turkey burgers fried in coconut oil with kale sauteed in the leftover oil and browned bits.

  444. Sarah M says

    My favorite paleo recipe is meatza. Love me some meat.
    And would love to have that book! Great giveaway!

      I am already using some of your gluten free recipes. this sparked yet another avenue of “good eats”.
