Oh my goodness, this has been a whirlwind of a weekend so far. About a month ago I entered a contest to celebrate the release of a new cookbook by some of my favorite bloggers with the hopes of winning a chance to hang out with George of Civilized Caveman, Julie of PaleOMG, and Pete of Pete’s Paleo in San Diego. And guess what guys? I won! There was a lot of dancing around and maybe just a little celebratory giggling.
So to celebrate this awesome experience coming my way, I purchased the rights to http://www.littlespoonblog.com and made this whole blogging thing officially official. Also, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite Victory Belt books because if you don’t already know what awesome works these guys have published, you need to know!
Preordering this awesome cookbook entered me to win the contest, and it will come out on June 10th and you should go reserve your copy now if you haven’t already. Juli was the first paleo blog I ever subscribed to, and her slow cooker recipes have saved me more than once. If you miss some of your pre-paleo grain filled favorites, you need this cookbook because George has gotten paleo baking down to a art form!
The Paleo Coach
Jason Seib is just an all around amazing guy. If you’ve gotten all the information you need about diet and nutrition, but can’t seem to act on it, this is the book you need. Jason dives into the science of why the standard American diet isn’t working for us, and the psychology behind making real change in your life. He presents everything in a super easy to understand voice so don’t worry, you don’t need a MS in Nutrition to get all of the information you need.
If you’re just starting with a paleo lifestyle, this is book I recommend you pick up. Most of Diane’s recipes can either be precooked ahead of time, or are easy to put together on a weeknight after work (trust me, I’ve followed her digestive health meal plan!). She starts by breaking down the nuts and bolts of nutrition with a TON of great visuals, and then you get a whole cookbook attached to it too! It’s seriously two books in one. I love it!
Are you looking to take your whole food or canning game to the next level? Pick up a copy of Fermented by Jill Ciciarelli and you’ll be transported to a whole new world of preserving and improving your favorite foods. I have always struggled with digestive health, and especially after having to be on some pretty serious antibiotics at the beginning of the year, and a little bit of super flavorful fermented foods can really go a long way in getting me back on track.
So that’s what is sitting on my bookshelf from my friends at Victory Belt. Do you have some cookbooks you’re looking forward to, or have read so often they automatically open to your favorite pages? Tell me all about them in the comments!
