Holistic Moms Network just came out with their new cookbook. It is basically a theme of many paths to health and can be found on their website. It has a Vegetarian section, GF, Macrobiotic, and Traditional Foods chapter.

The Garden of Eating is a totally grain free, along w/ dairy free cookbook. Lots of yummy TF/paleo recipes.

The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook and the Spunky Coconut Cookbook are both gluten free, I believe, and pretty TF. (I do not have either, but I am pretty sure they are both gf.)

Also there is Bruce Fife's Cooking w/ Coconut Flour and The Gluten Free, Almond Flour Cookbook (all recipes can be made TF subbing honey for agave, etc.).

And Mother Necessity Gluten Free/Casein Free Recipes is another one--I am certain she soaks/sprouts grains b/4 cooking w/ them--I've looked through this book in the store and thought I would have loved it when first learning about gf/cf cooking. If you like baking w/ grains, this might be a good choice (along w/ the whole life nutrition cookbook and the spunky coconut). If you are more grainfree, the Garden of Eating, Coconut Flour and Almond Flour cookbooks will be more helpful.

Rick Bayless' Authentic Mexican cookbook ?

Is this recommendation for the new Anniversary edition? Or the older one?

Not a cookbook but Primal Body - Primal Mind by Nora T. Gedgaudas is a good book on eating primal (basically a grain-free, legume-free diet) from a TF perspective (she references WAPF/Sally Fallon/NT a fair bit, among many other sources).

What cookbook/eating plan is a good, quick overall guide???

I have to get a healthier diet going for my family. We don't follow any particular diet, but love international cuisine and actually eat vegan about half of the year. We aren't opposed to meat though... I'm a little cautious about dairy products, but do use them sparingly.

I appreciate any suggestions that come to mind!

You decide how much to pay. What she asks is that when the time is right, you submit a donation for what you think the experience is worth. You decide when, how often, and how much to donate.


I just signed up to review the class materials. It looks comprehensive and I love the 'pay what feels good' energy about the ecourse!

Just been reading _The Maker's Diet_, which is way tf (and an inpirational story of healing). I'm not religious (spiritual yes, but not in an 'organized' way), and the diet is based on the Bible, but it's been a fascinating and helpful read--I'd recommend it to religious and non-religious (TF) folks alike. I'm personally interested in it for the healing aspects. Also, not sure if this has been mentioned, but GAPS--Gut and Psychology Syndrome--is another book about healing that is actually recommended by WAPF (I'm pretty sure)--focusses on healing things like autism, ADHD, psychiatric issues and more...I found it very informative and helpful when reading it.

Also, _The Primal Blueprint Cookbook_ is a primal/paleo/grain free cookbook, that I'm certain emphasizes whole foods that our paleolithic anscetors would have eaten. I've seen tons of great reviews (and am anxiously awaiting recieving my copy in the mail!) I think it will be a great one to add to anyone's collection--sure to have lots of meat and veggies recipes full of good fats!

Pat--that sounds like a really cool course!!! I'd be interested in 'skillet dishes'--makes me think of my cast iron (which I cook everything in)...mmmmmmm...

I highly recommend Nigel Slaters Real Fast Food. Most of the recipes are TF and those which aren't are really easy to convert (just sub the bread or pasta out). Lots of cream, eggs, butter and olive oil and very few head slap moments (I still think frying potatos in walnut oil is a hanging offence but it's only one recipe!). All can be made in 30 minutes or less and there are quite a few recipes using tinned fish which are very handy for store cupboard meals. His eggs with parmesan and anchovies are my little girl's new favorite!

weekly menus?

I found a link six months ago to a weekly menu planner that used in season foods and gave you step by step instructions including shopping list. Does anyone know what I am referring to? I would love to find that resource again.

I have a neat book my mom gave me last year called "Milk, The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages, with 120 adventurous Recipes that Explore the riches of our First Food." Half history, half recipes. I've read the first part (very interesting) but not tried any recipes yet.
It's by Anne Mendelson
