Top 5 Traditional Cooking Cookbooks Of 2015
Not in any particular order…
Nourishing No-Bake Treats by Lindsey Dietz
- a simple 3-ingredient base formula
- one appliance
- very easy!
- healthy ingredients and unrefined sweeteners
DIY Herbal Coffee Substitutes by Jessica Espinoza
- save $$$ on the coffee blend itself and on the coffee drinks you can make at home
- healthier than store-bought coffee alternatives because its fresher and better for allergies
- contains a handful of base herbal coffee recipes
- contains a bunch of “coffee shop” recipes (using your base herbal coffee) and then dressed up to be salted caramel, white chocolate peppermint, buttered maple cream, and more
- allergy-friendly because you can use whatever dairy or non-dairy, whatever sweetener, etc.
- get the herbs at Mountain Rose Herbs
Eat Beautiful by Megan Stevens
- Eat Beautiful instead of being deprived on a gut-healing diet
- the non-grain, soaked nut bread method yields healthy, moist, and non-rancid breads — you won't miss real bread!
- beautiful treats for your gut-healing diet
- no grains or refined sweeteners
Einkorn Cookbook by Carla Bartolucci
- beautiful no-knead artisan loaf (I make it several times a week)
- it's absolutely beautiful
- easily adapted to traditional methods using sprouted einkorn flour or sourdough (see my Einkorn Baking eCourse for more)
Trim Healthy Mama — (New) Plan and Cookbook by Pearl Barrett & Serene Allison
- I lost more than 30 pounds doing Trim Healthy Mama with 100% traditional foods
- the “old” plan book contains recipes that are harder to follow; the new cookbook is so easy to use and contains hundreds of recipes!
- the “old” plan book could seem overwhelming — the new plan book is easy to follow and understand
- one of the sisters is a Traditional Foodie so traditional foods play a major role in the recipes and methods; as well as nutrient-dense whole foods
- in January, watch my blog for a “Tips for Doing Trim Healthy Mama with Traditional Foods” that I'll be putting up
- Cooking Outside by me! (newly released)
- All my other Traditional Cooking School eBooks
- Nourishing Traditions for Kids by Suzanne Gross (she was a guest on my podcast here)
- The Nourished Kitchen by Jennifer McGruther (free recipe for Baked Oats with Pistachios, Dried Figs, and Honey is here)
