The holidays mean sharing food with family and friends and being with the ones you love. This year, give them the gift of good health. Chef Rachel’s books, The Garden Of Eating: A Produce-Dominated Diet & Cookbook, and, The Ice Dream Cookbook: Dairy-Free Ice Cream Alternatives with Gluten-Free Cookies, Compotes & Sauces, both educate readers on good nutrition and kitchen/pantry organization, and are filled with delicious and healthy recipes that your loved ones will truly enjoy for years to come.
You will find recipes that have not been presented in other paleo and primal cookbooks and nutrition and kitchen stocking information and prep tips that are incredibly helpful that are absent from most cookbooks. This was the first paleo cookbook to come out in the market before the paleo craze took off. It is like three books in one. You'll find so many family-friendly, user friendly recipes and features in this one-of-a-kind cookbook and nutrition resource that was modeled on the Joy of Cooking in many ways but with ancestral twist.

In the spirit of giving, between now and the end of the year, these books will discounted Garden Of Eating will be $30.00 ($9.95 off the cover price) and The Ice Dream Cookbook will be $20.00 ($10 off the cover price). My aim is to sell out my existing inventory so I can work on my new books in the new Year.
You can help. If you like the books, please consider buying extra copies to give as gifts or to save up for gifting people in the New Year. When The Garden of Eating is out of print, it will not be reprinted. The Ice Dream Cookbook will be modified (to remove the grain in the cookie and bar recipes that contain them, making it totally grain-free. It will reprinted as an e-book).

You can order the books from the links on my book page here or here. To skip the shipping fees for local orders, you can call Planetary Press to order and pick up copies at (602) 840-4556 or arrange to get them from Rachel at a farmers’ market. This is the perfect time to get great gifts for nutrition and health-conscious people in your life who eat or want to eat gluten-free and/or grain-free, whole foods, real foods, paleo, primal, produce- and protein-rich meals and snacks, and enjoy dairy-free, low-sugar, naturally sweetened and fruit-sweetened desserts.
