There are certain people that God places into our lives that – just like a ray of sunshine – warm our hearts and bring a smile to our face each time we speak with them. My friend Kelly Bejelly is exactly that kind of friend, which is why I couldn’t be more excited to share her new cookbook with you.
Kelly’s kindness, wisdom and culinary talents have served to inspire and encourage so many people who are seeking to improve their health and wellness through following a grain-free lifestyle (myself included). As part of her mission to help others live healthier, she recently released a collection of her best recipes in a beautiful new cookbook – Paleo Eats.
One of the things I enjoy most about her book is that it’s far more than just a collection of grain-free, dairy-free recipes, Kelly has compiled so many helpful resources into Paleo Eats, including:
• Helpful budget tips and resources
• Recommendations for substitutions
• How to stock your pantry and successfully use ingredients
• How to rescue a culinary disaster and other troubleshooting tips
• How to recreate healthier versions of your family-favorite recipes
But of course, Kelly has also made sure to include a ton of delicious recipes too – 111 to be exact! She covers everything from main dishes like breakfast, lunch and dinner, to side dishes, dessert and drinks. And she also includes a section on how to make basics like mayo, sauces and gravies.
In fact, there are so many wonderful family-friendly recipes, I can tell you it was no easy task to select one to share with you. So … I asked my boys what they wanted me to make? And it was absolutely no contest – when they caught a glimpse of Kelly’s crunchy cinnamony cereal, they were begging me to get out the baking sheets NOW!
The first thing I noticed about the recipe is that it has just a few ingredients and that it’s super easy to make – that is definitely a plus for busy mommas! The second thing I discovered is that you’d better seriously make a double-batch. My boys could barely contain their excitement as they waited for the cereal to cool. I honestly think the cereal squares were still slightly warm when they tossed a couple of handfuls into a bowl and doused them with cold almond milk.
It was hard to get too many words out of them … other than the satisfying sounds of “Mmm!” in between crunching. So, suffice it to say, this recipe was a hands-down winner!
That’s why I highly recommend taking a look inside Paleo Eats here to see for yourself what a wonderful resource it is for anyone living a gluten-free or grain-free lifestyle. And of course, this tasty recipe will provide you with just one example of the 100+ delicious recipes featured in Kelly’s Paleo Eats Cookbook.
