Healthy, low-fat Italian comfort food? Yes, please!

If you're eager to adopt a gluten free lifestyle or follow the Paleo diet, you'll find it very easy to do with the authentic and traditional Italian recipes in this book—each with a Paleo twist. Written with nutrition and ease in mind, these Paleo recipes don't sacrifice any of the sumptuous flavor you expect to find in Italian cuisine.

Cookbook author and food blogger Cindy Barbieri (of the blog Cindy's Table) discovered that she didn't have to reject her love of authentic Italian food when she decided to adopt a Paleo approach to family dining. To her delight, she found that many of her favorite authentic Italian cuisine dishes were already Paleo. And those that aren't can be converted with a few simple and healthful substitutions—all without sacrificing the delicious flavors that she fell in love with as a child.

Cindy's husband and kids enthusiastically embraced her gluten-free recipes, including Italian soups, salads, appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts—and your family will too!

In Paleo Italian Cooking, Cindy shows you how to prepare delicious family-style Paleo Italian meals, like:
  • Flank Steak with Salsa Verde
  • Chicken Scaloppine in Lemon Caper Sauce
  • Pistachio-Crusted Cod with Roasted Pepper Sauce
  • Pan-Roasted Garlic Sage Quail
  • And over 85 other healthful dishes inspired by her grandmother's traditional Italian recipes
Lose weight and achieve better health without tedious calorie counting, purchasing expensive, bland diet foods or avoiding the foods you crave. By cutting out grains, legumes and pasteurized dairy, you'll be able to look and feel better while indulging your passion for classic Italian cuisine!
