Garden of Eating & Ice Dream Cookbook Giveaways!!!

Wow, could there be a more comprehensive, and truly natural cookbook than The Garden of Eating. I couldn’t believe how many amazing recipes there were that consisted of truly nutrient rich foods. I loved how good I felt eating these great tasting recipes!

I grew up in a family that was very much a part of the healthful living movement. Our family uses coconut oil, Real Salt and other earth-made (instead of man-made) ingredients in our cooking. I love the Chef Rachel captured that type of cooking when she wrote this cookbook. Recently at on of our local CDF support group meetings we had Chef Rachel come and discuss her books and her views on eating a more produce dominated diet. She brought in some of her foods for us to sample and WOW!!! Let me just tell you, her nut butter dips are an amazing accompaniment to her delicious veggies. The gluten-free chocolate brownie/cake dessert she brought in was the topper to the evening. It couldn’t have been more delicious and I didn’t feel bad eating it knowing what high-quality ingredients were used to make it. Now that is a good feeling! :)

Chef Rachel also has another great cookbook that is perfect for enjoying those sweets and treats but not wanting ALL the quilt that comes with it. The Ice Dream Cookbook uses such products as coconut milk and natural sweeteners to make delicious dairy-free ice creams and gluten-free cookies. This is an excellent cookbook for anyone!

    I find her cookbooks to be so interesting because they take a different approach to healthy eating. I especially like cookbook featuring fresh fruit and vegetables with pasture fed meats. This is the type of diet that most appeals to me.

    I tried to leave a comment on Kella's column for all her St. Patrick's Day “green” ideas… but it wouldn't let me (wanted a “profile” but I didn't know what that was — I don't have a blog).

    Anyway, loved all the green ideas. Thanks for sharing, Kella!!
