pre-released book recipes plus a little sneak peek

TOC

 

My book is finally officially off to the printers! I will be receiving the first copies in my hands in about a month and they will start arriving on shelves and your doorstep if you preordered on July 30th! I am so excited to finally get to share all of these recipes with you. The first part of the book details my health struggles and journey to recovery which I will be doing a separate post on with some exclusive photos in a couple of weeks. But what I am sure you are all dying to see is the recipe lineup! So here’s a little sneak peek at the many chapters that makeup my book!

If you have been following my blog for a long time, you will see some of the reader favorites like the Sandwich Bread or Real-Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies amongst the recipes. I included a handful that you all make frequently so you can have it in print and all in one place. 80% of the recipes are brand new, so there will still be plenty of new exciting recipes for you! I labeled all of the recipes with whether they are SCD | Nut-Free | Egg-Free | or Vegan. All of the recipes in the book are grain & dairy free, making them suitable for the Paleo diet, but I wanted to decipher the recipes for those that have other dietary needs. If you do follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), rest assured that you can pretty much eat everything in the book besides the chocolate! There are over 150 recipes, so you will have plenty to chose from. And because I know this book has been a long time in the making and you have all waited ever-so-patiently-

I wanted to give you some of the recipes from the book before everyone else gets them!

You just need to be signed up for my mailing list so I can email you 1 new recipe a week until the book is out! If you’re not signed up, or are not sure if you are signed up, make sure to enter your email address in the form to the upper right (or by clicking here) so you can begin receiving the recipes on Monday!

    I am thinking about getting your cookbook but I am allergic to nuts. Do the majority of the recipes use almond / cashews (flour) or just some of them? Will I have a hard time using this cookbook because of the nut allergy?

    Hello Danielle

    First, I love your book, I have already sent you a post about it, but from reading it, I can not help but wonder about some of your qualified SCD friendly recipes. After checking the site Breaking Vicious The Circle, I noticed that sesame seeds, flax seeds, sweet potatoes, cocoa, jicama and balsamic vinegar are classified as illegal for scd diet. I am also suspicious about coconut crystals, but I could not verify this latest information. Maybe you have information I do not know about this diet…

    Thank you again for sharing.
    Merci !

      Hi Nathalie- thanks for your patience on the delayed response! I am inundated with emails these days. You may have missed my announcement when the book came out on this matter. The second printing has already been fixed, but as with any printed book, there were a few errors that fell through the cracks. Even the Great Gatsby is still being printed with typos after all of these years! Hopefully we caught them all though in the first run. :-)

      As I mentioned in my announcement, a few things were accidentally mislabeled when the book was being processed. I give butternut squash a substitute for most the recipes that use sweet potatoes, but a few were missed. Sesame seeds are legal but are cautioned to be added after 3 months. Yes, flax is not legal and there was 1 recipe for no’oatmeal raisin cookies where there was supposed to be a note to omit them. That has also been fixed. Cocoa is never labeled as SCD legal, at least it shouldn’t be, so let me know if you found otherwise. Jicama was also a mistake, as I was not aware that it was not SCD legal. Balsamic vinegar is legal as long as you purchase one that does not have additives and is pure balsamic vinegar. As for the coconut crystals (and also coconut aminos) the verdict is out. As you know, BTVC has not been updated in many years and these products are fairly new. Both are unprocessed and have a very low glycemic index as well as low carb count so many in the SCD community find them to be acceptable, although I always give an alternative for the crystals in the book just in case someone prefers not to use it.

      Hope that helps.

    sorry for double posting, but the earlier post was missing a whole part!? o.O

    hello danielle,

    i’ve bought your book last week and i looooove it dietary fiber 30,5g
    protein 36,8g

    honeyville (per 100g):
    fat 50g
    total carbohydrate 21g
    -> dietary fiber 10,7g
    and protein 21g

    any suggestions besides throwing it all away and try to get american almond flour!??? would be really sad to throw 6 lb away :(( in germany paleo isn’t that big, so i need to use 90% american recipes…

    the german coconut flour is different too, but it isn’t that different, so most coconut recipes still work out!

    sorry for my english ;)

    hello danielle,

    i’ve bought your book last week and i looooove it <3!!! i am a graphic designer and i love that it is so beautiful made apart from all those great recipes! i've spend three whole hours just reading an watching all the fantastic recipes when it arrived :D
    but after a few really messed up tries to bake with almond flour, i came to the conclusion that my almond flour has to be different than american almond flour. i am from germany and the organic almond flour that i've bought is partly de-oiled so the nutritions facts are totally different to the honeyville almond flour that you recommend…

  • casia

    my german almond flour contains (per 100g):
    fat 15g
    total carbohydrate 37,5g
    -> dietary fiber 30,5g
    protein 36,8g

    honeyville (per 100g):
    fat 50g
    total carbohydrate 21g
    -> dietary fiber 10,7g
    and protein 21g

    any suggestions besides throwing it all away and try to get american almond flour!??? would be really sad to throw 6 lb away :(( in germany paleo isn’t that big, so i need to use 90% american recipes…

    the german coconut flour is different too, but it isn’t that different, so most coconut recipes still work out!

    sorry for my english ;)

      Oh wow! That is quite different. You could possibly add some additional fat like an extra egg or coconut oil if your baked goods are too dry. Or try reducing the coconut flour which is typically used to help absorb some of the oils from the almond flour. It may be a little process of trial and error for you! Ill post this question on my FB and see if anyone responds.

      • casia

        thanks a lot for the quick answer, i think i will try to add some additional fat :) and reduce the amount of almond flour as well!? if i do the math right instead of using 100g from my almond flour i would take 60g almond flour, so i would have 22,5g carbohydrate and 22g protein and 9g fat and i would add 40g coconut oil so i would have 49g fat altogether… sounds good on paper ;) lets see what it will do to a recipe :D

        luckely i found another german brand which is almost identical with the honeyville almond , so next time i buy that one!!!
