  • gluten-free
  • grain-free

I am so thankful for the feedback you all left me in my Is a Cookbook Missing from Your Shelf post –it was such a tremendous help in writing this (gluten-free, grain-free) cookbook and selecting the recipes for Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. Stay tuned for more information on my new book.

Here’s a new book for a new year and a new you!


  1. Jennifer Robbins says

    I’m so excited for your next book! I love that the recipes are also nightshade free since I recently discovered that nightshade are likely a problem for me as well as having celiac disease. I have both of your other books and I so love them. Especially your first book which changed the way I cook and bake. Thanks so much for creating these wonderful recipes!

  2. Shelley says

    Oh man! I have to wait until June to get it!!! So excited to get this. I have your other two books and use them all the time.

  3. Cathy says


    I have your other books. I cannot wait to get this new cookbook! I have pre-ordered it, and I usually don’t do things like that. Is there any special equipment needed for these recipes? (Like the special size bread pan.) I want to have them on hand when I receive the book so I can get cooking right away. I still cannot get over the bagels on the cover!

    You have been a tremendous help to so many people with food issues. This is really the only site that I go to for recipes because you have everything I need.

    And, to think that when I first visited, I had never heard of Paleo.

    Thank you so much for all of your hard work.

    WOW! I was so excited to see that your new book will be nightshade -free! Thank you for making that special effort. I love night shades, but they do not love me back. :( not even for Valentines Day….. A one sided relationship. Can’t wait for this book! Good Luck and congrats!

  9. Liz N. says

    Elana, I am so, so excited for the release of this book! June can’t come fast enough. I’ve used your cookbooks and blog for gluten-free recipes but once I started seeing Paleo recipes on your blog, I was ecstatic! The Paleo diet complements my physical activity (CrossFit, running) and I am always searching for new recipes to try out. Thank you for sharing this bit of great news. I’m going to pre-order the book today!

  10. Carol Nathan says

    I just pre-ordered. I am so excited. I am very intrigued (along with a lot of other people) by what appears to be bagels on the cover. Elana can you tell those are?

  11. Tressa says

    Preordered mine and I can’t wait! I’m doing a 90 day challenge right now at Crossfit and I’m hoping to stick with it. Hurry up June!

  12. Heather says

    Nightshade free too!!! I am avoiding gluten for my joint pain and my youngest daughter is allergic to dairy and tomatoes. We definitely need this. It’s so easy to find gf and df but add in the tomato thing and we always have trouble finding good recipes.

  13. says

    Awesome! My wife has been using your writings as a resource since we went gluten free two years ago. We’re about to make the Paleo jump – right on time, I guess!

  14. Saundra says

    I’m so excited for you and me both! So glad to see the recipes are nightshade free as well!!! Most recipes I find call for peppers and tomatoes. Thanks for all your hard work. Can’t wait to own your 3rd book to add to my cookbook shelf along with your other two books.

  15. Hope says

    I love the blog and have cooked a few recipes this past year from the paleo selection and they’ve all been keepers. Now I’m really excited by the thought of a whole cookbook of paleo recipes that are nightshade free, definitely on my to buy list! So wonderful that Eleana’s really listened to the responses to her question about what cookbook is missing from our shelves. Lovely to hear that many of them are nut and egg free too since I can’t eat either. Also wanted to thank Eleana for her part in making my husband’s Christmas a really special one this year. He tried out baking for the first time in 50 years with your Christmas Cake recipe and also your Honey Cake and your Pecan Pie Crust for homemade mince pies. He was astonished to find he can bake! Everything rose like it should and tasted heavenly apparently. Knowing how wonderful and trustworthy your recipes are I was a lot less surprised ;-). Next weekend he plans on making the honey cake again for a church social…

  16. says

    I have both of your other books and I probably would have purchased your third… until I saw night-shade free and now I can guarantee that I will be buying your book! Can’t wait. And dairy-free thank you!!!

  17. says

    Wonderful cover! Congratulations, Elana. Can’t wait to integrate these recipes into my cooking too. I always feel I’m doing my body good when eating your delicious food. Thanks for all your hard work.


  18. Cindy says

    Congratulations on the new book. I have pre-ordered it and can’t wait! You have made my transition to Paleo so smooth and I look forward to even more delicious recipes!

    • Hope says

      There’s a link in the article to pre-order it. I assumed that was to the USA site so I logged into Amazon for my own country – UK – and can pre-order it there.

  24. Yael says

    Is your new book contain carbohydrate RECEPICES ? I am still on SCD. I purchased your first two books, and using them all the time , but not all the RECEPICES. Yael

  25. staci says

    Oh my gosh!
    This is great news! I only wish it was available now. This is the perfect cookbook! I use so many of your paleo recipes already now I cookbook!!!

  26. Katie Hunt says

    Yahoo!! I have been waiting for you to publish a Paleo book!! I love your Paleo recipes on the blog-I’m making your stuffed peppers this week. Thanks, Elana! :)

  27. says

    I look forward to getting this new cookbook. I follow paleo dieting and this will expand my choices. You have such wonderful recipes. I also like the added information you give as to which product is best and where to get them from.

  28. Caroline says

    Is the recipes are all with nuts? Because paleo frequently use nuts instead of wheat… I’m intolerant to nuts …

  29. says

    The cover is gorgeous. Your cookbooks never disappoint and I will be happy to buy this new one to keep your other books company on my kitchen book shelf. :-)

  30. Kimberly says

    Ohhhhh, I can’t wait!! The first Paleo recipes I ever prepared were yours; and I’ve been a faithful follower ever since! Congrats!
