Book Reviews,Books,Chicken,Contests & Giveaways

How would you like to win a copy of a super-fun, kid-friendly cookbook and nutrition guide? Earlier this week I posted a review of Eat Like A Dinosaur: Recipe & Guidebook for Gluten-Free Kids written by The Paleo Parents. The book contains more then 100 kid-approved recipes and projects free of grain, dairy, and legumes, eye appealing illustrations, photographs, and stories that educate and inspire. Matt and Stacy and their three kids experienced phenomenal improvements in health after adopting a paleo diet. You can read my review of their book here.

6a00e552ad01da88340163057378fe970d-300wiI’ve posted my favorite recipe from their book so far, below: Fool’s Gold (Chicken Nuggets).  

This big kid (me) really enjoyed reading the book and trying recipes. So even if you don’t have kids or grand kids, you’ll find delicious, easy to make recipes made from fresh, wholesome real foods here, along with tips for procuring more fresh, organic, and locally sourced foods and presenting it in a fun way. I included their Chicken Nugget recipe in a Baking with Almond Flour class last night at Desert Botanical  Garden and my students and assistants loved it. I plan to make more of their recipes.

Prep: about 30 minutes        Cooking: 15 to 20 minutes        Serves: 4

“One of the things our boys always want and miss is chicken nuggets. We went into our kitchen laboratory and came up with this fun way to make chicken nuggets with healthy ingredients so that their daydreams about nuggets could some true.

“We like to keep a cooked batch in the freezer so that Uncle Andrew has something easy to heat up for the bodys when he babysits. We love these with our Southwestern Pineapple Salsa (page 149” of Eat Like A Dinosaur: Recipe & Guidebook for Gluten-Free Kids written by the Paleo Parents).

3 chicken breasts, deboned and skinned (I use 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken)
2 cups blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
2 teaspoons finely ground unrefined sea salt
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup olive oil (Note: I found 1/2 cup oil worked well; I also replace olive oil with avocado oil, which has a higher smoke point and is therfore more stable in cooking at the required temp)

1.    Cut chicken into 1-inch by 1-inch chunks.
2.    Mix flour, arrowroot powder, and spices together in bowl with a fork or whisk.
3.     Pour olive oil into a separate bowl.
4.    Dip each chicken piece in the oil and then roll in the flour mixture.
5.    Place nuggets on baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees, flipping     halfway through.
6.    When done, the crust will be golden brown and juices will run clear (same color     inside and out).

    I would like to win this book because it will help me cook meals that my son can eat. He is on a GFCFSF diet. I am in a rut on meals to cook for him. This book would be so helpful! A funny kid story is about my sister. When we were kids, she ate too many carrots and her nose turned a yellow/orange color. True story!

    I’d like to win this bc it looks so cute. A funny kid food story? This is not really funny, but my sisters and I used to collect the Chiquita banana stickers and put them in our sticker book

    I would love to win this for my mother, who has a new baby (we’re 20 years apart). I already follow the Paleo/Primal lifestyle and my mom is getting interested in it, and I think this would be perfect for them both! Funny kid story? Hmm…there are so many, but everyeverytimetime my little sister (15 months) just sees the trailer for the Disney Chimpanzee movie she freaks out! Like full blown screaming and hollering…but not because she is scared. I think its fascination. You just have to see her face, its so funny/adorable. Thanks Chef Rachel for all of these giveaways!

    My daughter Mia doesn’t believe that there are 6 food groups to eat from. Her pyramid only includes hamburgers, pizza and steak. Help! I’m on a gluten free, dairy free diet and I end up making 3 different dinners each night. I would love to open up Eat Like a Dinosaur and find a healthy meal that the whole family would to eat together.

    Funny food story. When I was a child my Mother took us to the Phoenix Zoo. At the monkey exhibit they asked for volunteers to race a monkey eating a banana. I raise my hand and rushed up on stage. At the count of three we were off, stuffing our faces with a banana. I looked over at my brother and he was jumping up and down like a monkey and making a funny face at me and I laughed. Well, the banana I was swallowing only had one place to go…up my nasal cavity. Yes, up my nose. The moral of this story, don’t volunteer to race a monkey eating, he will win and never laugh while eating a banana.
