Primal Low Carb Kitchen Cookbook Review
You know what I love? Recipes that taste amazing and are healthy. You know what I love more? Recipes that my children love that taste amazing and are healthy. The Primal Low Carb Kitchen cookbook provides exactly what I love.
Kyndra of Peace, Love and Low Carb has long been one of my favorite real food bloggers. Her story is inspiring and her recipes are delectable. Recently, Kyndra so kindly sent me a copy of her latest creative masterpiece — The Primal Low Carb Kitchen cookbook. When it arrived in the mail, I wasted no time planning the next week’s menu. The only problem was narrowing it down to which of the beautiful recipes I would try first.
Primal Party Food
When I opened the cookbook, it fell immediately to the Loaded Sweet Potato Bites. Now, I have made sweet potatoes every way from Sunday, but I have never thought to make them like this. They looked like happiness on a plate. When I made them the next day, they did not disappoint.
I mean look at that photo! The flavors are all there: the sweetness of the sweet potato, the creamy tangy-ness of the cheese and sour cream, the rich, saltiness of the bacon, the bite of the green onion — it’s all right there in one mouthful of heavenly, primal, low carb goodness.
These sweet potato bites make perfect primal party food. I made two trays of them and left them on the counter for my little grazers to grab. I mean, with three boys, I already feel like I live in a frat house, so why not eat party food as much as possible?
Primal Homestyle Food
The next recipe I tried was the Country-Fried Steak with Country Sausage Gravy. Now, I’m a southern girl, born and raised, so when I see country-fried I get all Pavlovian. Unfortunately, I don’t feel so great when I eat the carb-rich, polyunsaturated fat laden, country-fried southern dishes. That’s why I got a little excited when I saw that Kyndra’s recipe for Country-Fried Steak was gluten-free!
Southern, home style food that’s gluten free? What?!
So, it doesn’t sound country enough for you? Guess what the crispy, delectable breading is made of?
Pork Rinds. Yep. That’s right. Isn’t that brilliant? Nix the carbs without nixing the flavor.
Primal Comfort Food
When the cookbook arrived, my youngest son and I sat down to look at it. When he saw the Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto “Mac” and Cheese he begged me to make it. This recipe has quickly become a family favorite.
Instead of high-carb pasta, The Primal Low Carb Kitchen recipe for mac and cheese uses cauliflower. Now, if you’ve never used cauliflower in place of your high-carb favorites, you need to know that it is great at absorbing the flavors of the dish that it’s in. That means even if your children hate cauliflower by itself, they are likely to love it in this creamy, comforting dish.
Just a note: I forgot to buy the prosciutto the first time I made this recipe, but had some bacon from breakfast that I used instead. It was delicious.
The Primal Low Carb Kitchen Make Primal Food Easy
Busy moms like you and me don’t need a cookbook with complicated recipes. We need easy recipes for busy weeknights. The Primal Low Carb Kitchen delivers just that. These recipes are comforting, tasty and don’t require exotic, expensive ingredients.
I had many of the ingredients on hand already and I keep a pretty simple real food kitchen. There was no need to shop for pricey, difficult-to-find ingredients for these recipes. Planning my weekly menu was a snap.
In addition to the down-to-earth recipes, there was a kitchen tool list included in the book. Don’t you hate when you want to make a recipe and you don’t have some critical piece of equipment needed? I was happy to see that I already had every single kitchen tool on the list in my kitchen. With the possible exception of a vegetable spiralizer, your kitchen is likely already set for prepping and cooking each of these recipes, as well.
Kid-Friendly Primal Recipes
My kids are automatically suspicious of any new recipe that I make. The fact that they were picking out their favorite recipes from The Primal Low Carb Kitchen based solely on the gorgeous photos, was a good sign. When they asked for seconds (and thirds) of the recipes I made from the cookbook, I knew I had a winner.
The recipes in The Primal Low Carb Kitchen will be a part of our dinner rotation for years to come. In fact, the recipes are so kid-friendly and uncomplicated that my children were able to help me make them. Did you know that children who participate in cooking are more likely to eat the food they make?
