FAST FOOD FOR BUSY FAMILIES
Who ever said that busy people couldn’t cook savoury, healthy meals for themselves? Award-winning chef and TV personality Pete Evans stepped in to dispel this widely held bias, gathering over 100 easy paleo recipes that can be made within 30 minutes.
Broken up into chapters, Evans’ book focuses on the idea that preparing nourishing meals doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive or time-consuming – it’s all about getting organised, investing in the right equipment and making the most of simple ingredients, with a preference for ethically farmed meats, sustainable seafood and organic vegetables.
Each recipe is accompanied by heaps of practical tips, guiding the readers by hand on a discovery journey through the paleo diet. “Eating the paleo way,” the author writes, “is about embracing real foods and eliminating any foods that may cause inflammation in our bodies,” with gluten, dairy, toxic oils and refined sugars being the most infamous culprits.
Since preparing meals can also be a highly rewarding family activity, Evans encourages parents to get their kids involved. Because eating healthy means cooking wisely or, as Evan put it, “cooking with love and laughter.”
