PALEO LUNCHES & BREAKFASTS ON THE GO

Lunch and breakfast are often the hardest meals to eat without busting your Paleo, gluten-free diet, especially when most recipes call for gluten, processed oils, sliced bread or sandwich buns.

Diana Rodgers, a nutritional therapist and Paleo community activist, solves the problem with Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go. Containing 100 easy and delicious packable meals without bread, the book takes the confusion out of how to make hand-friendly and fast Paleo meals. Recipes include her Chicken Salad with Fennel and Cranberries perfectly cradled by a leaf of romaine lettuce, the to-die for Cherry Tarragon Breakfast Sausages and even a Paleo-friendly Bubble and Squeak. From lettuce-wrap sandwiches to egg muffins to creative uses for toothpicks and packaging, the book’s mouthwatering ideas make for perfect portable meals that are as healthy and easy to make as they are gourmet.

JENI'S SPLENDED ICE CREAM DESSERTS

In Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts, ice creams deliciously melt into hot brown Bettys, berry cobblers, sweet empanadas and corn fritters. Jeni Britton Bauer’s one-of-a-kind cakes and cookies are not only served with ice cream, they get crumbled on top of and incorporated into the ice cream base itself.

Sundae combinations dazzle with bold and inspired sauces, such as Whiskey Caramel and Honey Spiked with Chilies. And Bauer’s crunchy “gravels” (crumbly sundae toppings, such as Salty Graham Gravel and Everything Bagel Gravel) are unlike toppings anyone has ever seen before.

Store-bought ice cream can be used for all the desserts in the book, but it will be hard to resist Bauer’s breakthrough recipes for dairy-free ice cream, frozen custard, and soft-serve. Brand-new flavors (30 in all, including Cumin and Honey Butterscotch, and Extra-Strength Root Beer Ice Cream) attest to the magic of this unique and alluring collection.
