Paleo Eats + Against All Grain

After completing Whole30 the hubby and I started focusing on eating paleo as much as possible. We've had the occasional glass of wine and sweet treat on the weekend, but overall we're 95% paleo. With that said I've been on a mission to find new tasty and health paleo dishes.

While searching for new recipes I decided to buy Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great. I never thought I would love a cookbook as much as I do Against All Grain! Danielle Walker is a genius and food wizard!  

Danielle's recipes are simple, easy to make and delicious. Each dish I've made has been a hit in our house. Best part you don't even realize you're eating paleo!

Danielle created over 150 recipes and all of them are grain, legume and dairy free. Including a wide variety of baked goods, desert and even grain-free granola and breakfast recipes!

Let's get to good part! The food.


Hands down the best gluten/dairy free bread I've ever eaten. It's moist, dense and fluffy all at the same time -- the secret ingredient is cashew butter. I sliced it right up and made a chicken salad sandwich! This morning I enjoyed a slice with raspberries perseveres and fresh carrot orange juice.

Slow Cooked Chicken Tacos
I love mexican food. Chips & guacamole, street tacos and margaritas -- that's my jam. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. Instead of using a tortilla, the hubby and I enjoyed the chicken over shredded cabbage and topped it was avocado. Think of it as a taco salad.

Mexican Chicken Chowder (similar)
Our weekly cook-up includes some type of soup. During winter months soup is a filling easy on-the-go lunch. At first I wasn’t sure about the recipe, but was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The combination of sweet potato, spinach and  chili peppers was a little fiesta in my mouth.

Curry Chicken Salad
Chicken salad is another weekly staple, but I never thought about curry! Grab some leafy greens and top it with a scoop or two of the Curry Chicken salad and you have lunch! The flavor will keep you wanting more.

These are just a few of the items I've made from Against All Grain. I'm looking forward to diving into the desert section.  

There are a plethora of cookbooks geared towards the paleo lifestyle, but after a bit of research you can find one that's right for you. Whether you're a seasoned vet or new to the paleo lifestyle I would recommend adding
Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well & Feel Great to your kitchen shelf.
