Pete Evans Family Food
Scrolling through Facebook last night, I came across a post on Pete Evans Paleo Food cook book by Chef Pete Evans, who is a strong advocate of the Paleo lifestyle, not to mention a brilliantly successful and passionate chef whose focus in recent years has turned to creating recipes which are pro-health, not to mention creative, achievable to replicate at home (always very important!) and overall super healthy and absolutely amazing!
In his post, Pete wrote:
“Hey guys, I am super excited to share with you all our next book “Family Food” – 130 paleo inspired recipes that are budget and time friendly for the whole family. My team and I have taken on board what you have requested on this page, and made this book super easy, accessible and even more delicious with a section on kids lunches too”.
Wow! Because, after buying and cooking from Pete’s Healthy Every Day book, I can’t begin to explain my excitement for the release of his second Paleo inspired book, which will be available for shipping from early November.
From Healthy Every Day I’ve made recipes such as:
- Chia Seed Pudding
- Cinnamon Braised Short Ribs
- Lamb Harira Soup
- Cacao & Carob Bites
- Quinoa and Berry Porridge
- Middle Eastern Sausages with Coriander Sauce
- Seed Crackers
- Coconut and Spirulina Balls
- Chocolate Smoothie
- Kiddy YumYum Smoothie
- My Favourite Tea
- Cauliflower Rice
The best part about all of these recipes is that our toddler (who is super fussy) will try it all. There’s nothing unhealthy or unsafe for children, or adults in any of Pete’s recipes. Our little Mr R loves the Seed Crackers which are made with linseeds and the lamb harira is a big hit, not to mention the smoothies too.
Not yet convinced? No worries – let me trial some of the recipes and write a review – after that, I’m sure you’ll be just has hooked as me!
