Talk about long overdue: I received the beautiful book from Sonia a pretty long time ago. I can’t even remember the exact date and I had meant to cook from it and write a review but as it turned out an accident kind of made the rest of my year obsolete and I totally forgot about the book. But now that we’re back on a whole30 the first thing I pulled out of the bookshelf was Sonia’s book. If you’re into Paleo cooking this is as good as they come. I have quite a few paleo cookbooks and this one is by far the prettiest. The photos are amazing and it makes you want to dive right in and start cooking the meal for yourself.
What’s more important even is that Sonia is the reason I started my very first whole30 all that time ago. If it weren’t for her I might still be suffering from a few things that I wrote about before (to make it short: backpain) and as we’re now on our 5th whole30 and finally at the stage where I am seriously contemplating moving over to the paleo camp all together this is a really good book to have.
The recipes are original and while not technically whole30, it is very easy to convert where needed and each recipe comes with very handy icons that tell you exactly what you want to know. If a recipe is squeaky clean it is whole30 approved, so you can just skip to those or you can take out the non approved parts of the not so squeaky clean recipes… 🙂 It’s easy to do.
Since I have just finished making my own cookbook with the help of a stylist I know how hard it is to do it on your own. And Sonia did it all. And the book is massive! Chocfull of delicious recipes plus it has some good side information too on certain paleo ingredients. in the back is a handy visual index which lets you easily pick what you want to eat.
And now if you’ll excuse me I need to browse the book further for dinner ideas! (we’re on day 2 of the whole30, so I always need some time to get into the swing of things.
