Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry | Triumph Dining Book Review

paleoElana Amsterdam is a friend to Triumph Dining. The longtime author and food blogger is best known for her commitment to the gluten-free lifestyle.

The gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free recipes in this book are simple and for the most part, easy to make and delicious. They’re innovative without being weird. And they are family friendly. While there are a lot of Paleo cookbooks out there, this was an easy one to like because Elana is a proven resource. Readers don’t have to wonder about the quality of her recipes – she has a long, reliable track record.

The Triumph Dining testers really liked the Cauliflower Rice and Ice Cream. However, they’re still working their way through the more than 90 other recipes in the book. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the beautiful photography that accompanies some of the recipes.

There are chapters for Breakfast, Breads and Crackers, Vegetables, Entrees, Condiments, Pies, Ice Cream, Cookies and Beverages. This is a good book to pull out when you need to contribute something to a dinner party, picnic at the park, etc. Something this working mom of three appreciates is that it’s easy to substitute what you have in your pantry or freezer for common ingredients suggested in the recipes.

Friends with allergies, you will find lots of inspiration here!

  1. I’ve enjoyed Elana’s blog for quite some time and would love to win a copy of this book. The photos on the cover have my mouth watering already!

  2. It would have been even nicer had you spelled her name correctly on the title! I have two of her books and use them often. I am getting really tired of seeing misspellings everywhere, on tv, in newspapers, in ads, in signs. Hello- spell check!

  3. One of the struggles with eating gluten free is the boredom. I get tired of eating the same things all the time. This beautiful book would hopefully provide some new flavors and ideas.

  4. I’m allergic to gluten, dairy, and soy.
    I would love to have this cookbook, as I find it difficult to find recipes appropriate for my diet all in one book!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful cookbook! I could use some new recipes especially for dinner parties. I tend to stick to the same old recipes because I know they are safe.

  6. Trying to go Paleo but I’m also allergic to eggs, fish, and nightshade veggies. Hard to find a variety of recipes that will work for me. Hope this book gives options.

  7. I love Elana’s recipes and website. Having been diagnosed two years ago, I was so lucky to find her early on in my journey. I especially love her because she is totally grain free, which gluten intolerant folks should be as all grains contain gluten. The best thing about her recipes is the ease to make them.

  8. I have to eat paleo due to the combination of celiac disease and a long list of other food allergies and intolerances. Would love to win the book!

  9. I was just diagnosed with Celiac and am also lactose intolerant. This book would be a huge help right now as I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I love to cook and bake and very willing to try new recipes.

  10. Love all you do for those of us who can’t eat gluten! This book would be a huge blessing to me as I am dairy free too. So many GF cookbooks have dairy in the recipes.

  11. Bought the book and find it invaluable. The recipes are easy to follow and, more importantly, taste good. Thanks, Elana.

  12. This book sounds like something I need – Simple and easy for the full time working mom. I would be lucky to win.

  13. We are a family of Celiacs (all born into our family… Starting with my mom, 2 sisters and their 4 kids as well as myself and my 2 kids) and we all dabble with Paleo eating. This book would be shared among many and help all. We love cooking and eating healthfully! Family friendly Paleo meals would be great to know to aid in getting the kids on board too.

  14. I would love a copy. Anything to spice up the routine – which can get a bit boring at times when eating gluten free. Thanks for the chance!

  15. I have just started a paleo diet and would love to learn some new dinners to make for myself and my family that won’t gross them out with weird ingredients :)

  16. Looks like a good cook book, especially for those of us who have other things they cannot tolerate beyond celiac. I can’t have milk or rice, so this looks like the perfect book for me.

  17. Discovering that I am gluten intolerant and also suffering from other food allergies at the age of 61, has proven to be a difficult challenge to adjust my diet. I was fortunate to find Triumph Dining when I first began this new journey and used its guides and dining cards to help me and my family through this learning process. It is so exciting to find new cookbooks and new ideas from Triumph Dining every time I get the newsletter! Winning a copy of another great idea, Paleo Cooking, would be a thrill!

  18. I am on a fixed income trying to balance the higher cost of eating gluten-free because of Celiac Disease and staying on a budget. I’ve really enjoyed doing more cooking from scratch and creativity helps! My doctor highly recommends a paleo diet, something she relies on herself. This book would be great to win! Thank you!

  19. My family is fairly new to this way of eating due to my dad’s celiac diagnosis. We welcome new ideas to broaden the best gluten free food source for him.
