Two years ago in 2015, I founded Primal Kitchen® because I had a vision—a vision that extended the nutrition philosophy I’d honed with the help of this blog for (then) nearly decade. I wanted to make truly healthy—Primal—eating easier and more convenient. I wanted to create the kinds of products that I would use in my own kitchen—and offer them to others with the same health goals and the same love of amazing food.
Since then, I’ve introduced more than a dozen products that do just that—some of them (I’m very proud to say) award-winning. And I’ve had a tremendous team behind this vision the whole time, helping me offer the very best in taste and nutrition—and doing the work of making Primal Kitchen choices available literally nationwide. Today I get to announce a project that’s evolved within that Primal Kitchen endeavor—an incredible collaboration among my remarkable staff, long-time friends, and even my own children: The Primal Kitchen Cookbook.
In this collection, you’ll find recipes from more than 50 chefs, authors, and innovators within the Primal, paleo, and wellness communities (including a few from yours truly). It’s too many to list here, but—trust me—they’re all the best of the best, including Melissa Hartwig, Robb Wolf, Chris Kresser, Sarah Fragoso, Tony Horton, Laird Hamilton, Cassy Joy Garcia, Kelly Brozyna, Mary Shenouda, and many more. I’m grateful to every one of them for offering their talent to this project.
In the back of the book, there’s a full biography section so you can get to know each contributor and the websites and publications where you can connect with them further. I hope the list opens new doors for you. I swear, I’ve never been so inspired by a book’s appendix….
But let’s get to the real meat of the book, shall we—the 131 extraordinary recipes themselves. Here’s where it’s at, folks. I’m talking big breakfasts, Primal Kitchen Restaurant featured smoothies, nutrient-dense salads and lunches, succulent dinner entrees, rich desserts, tempting small bites, and various sauces and dressings.
I’d take up your entire day if I talked about all of the recipes and what I love about them, but let me throw just a few highlights out there….
Anyone ready to eat yet…?
Each recipe offers a macronutrient assessment and is labeled for specific dietary interests, including Autoimmune Protocol, dairy free, ketogentic, no sugar added, vegan, and Whole30®. All are low carb, gluten free, and hand-picked from my favorites. Want motivation for your Primal eating? These recipes deliver, no matter what your dietary interest or personal taste.
