Happy Monday, you beautiful souls! Are you pissed it’s not a Weekly Workouts post today? I apologize ahead of time, but I’m not really sorry because ONLY ONE MORE DAY UNTIL JULI BAUER’S PALEO COOKBOOK RELEASES! If you haven’t heard me talk about it yet, well where the hell have you been?! For the last year, I’ve been creating, cooking, baking, traveling, eating, drinking, crying, laughing, sleeping, and dreaming about this book. It was truly my life for the past year because I wanted this book to be the best book I’ve ever made. I’ve wanted to make a book like this from the beginning, but I just didn’t have the knowledge, the confidence or the ability to create it. Until this year, when I finally found my vision, found the photographers I wanted to work with, and found the happiness in my own life to help guide you to happiness in your own.
Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook talks all about figuring out what form of paleo works for you. Maybe strict paleo, no “cheat days” no-nothing works for you. Maybe eating paleo with some dairy keeps you sane. Or maybe you’re like me with more of a 80/20 approach with eating paleo 80% of the time and enjoying some gluten free foods the rest of the time. My point is, you gotta figure out what works for you and do that. Do what makes you feel good. I want you to eat the foods that feel right for your body and make you feel best so you can show that best you on the outside. That’s why my subtitle is all about recipes that help you shine from within. Because I literally want you to glow because of the food you are eating. Food is medicine and if you’re eating the right stuff, it’s going to show on the outside.
If you haven’t heard me talk about it yet, this is the last day to preorder a copy of Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook by midnight tonight on August 17, my publisher will donate 100 percent of their profit from those preorders to an animal charity of my choice! I’ve been looking into different charities and I’m still trying to figure out which one would be the perfect fit but I will definitely keep you updated. So lucky to have such an amazing publisher!
In Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, you’ll find over 100 gluten free and paleo recipes that range from savory and sweet breakfasts, entrees, tons of side dishes, snacks, desserts, cocktails and shakes. Oh yeah duh, and condiments! My favorite recipes in my book include:
- The Perfect Pizza – I also give you 3 other ways to create a delicious pizza
- Moo Shu Pork – For those Chinese food cravings
- Flourless Chocolate Layered Cake – This cake changed my life
- Samoa Cupcakes – Because, samoa.
- Breakfast Tacos AND Breakfast Pizzas – I know that’s two separate recipes, but both are equally as good
- Carne Mechada – Venezuelan shredded beef that will change your life
- Lechon Asado – Cuban pork that is so easy
- “Peanut” Butter Cream Pie (I’ll be sharing the recipe on the blog this week!!)
- Cream of Mushroom Soup – Reminds me of childhood
- Winter Squash Salad – And I hate salads, so that says a lot
