As fans of the Whole30 know, it can be challenging to figure out how to eat for the other 335 days of the year. Michelle Smith, creator of the blog The Whole Smiths, has the answers. This cookbook, the first ever fully endorsed and supported by Whole30, offers a collection of 150 recipes to keep Whole30 devotees going strong. Many recipes like Spaghetti Squash Chicken Alfredo are fully Whole30-compliant, and all are gluten-free, but you’ll also find recipes with a careful reintroduction of grains, like the tortillas in the Chile Enchilada Bake. Some recipes include beans and legumes, so there are plenty of vegetarian options. There are even desserts like Chocolate Chip and Sea Salt Cookies! Throughout the book, icons help readers identify which recipes fit their dietary constraints (and which are easily adaptable), but perhaps most important of all, the recipes are a delicious way to help anyone achieve a long-term approach to good health.
About the Author
Michelle Smith is the blogger behind the popular food blog, the Whole Smiths. She resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two young daughters. When Michelle's children were born, she started paying close attention to the foods they were eating and quickly realized how much processed food had become "normal" food in so many households, hers included. After dabbling in the paleo diet she quickly saw improvement in her family's overall health and wellness and was hooked. Shortly thereafter, she decided to start a food blog called the Whole Smiths and share the recipes that she was creating for her family. Michelle is passionate about creating healthy dishes the entire family will enjoy and doesn’t feel that clean eating should feel pretentious, but accessible and fun for everybody. When she’s not tinkering around in the kitchen she enjoys hiking, yoga and live music.
“Michelle’s food ticks all my boxes: healthy, realistic, delicious, and fun. There are lots of Whole30-compliant recipes, but plenty of variety for your food freedom. And it’s stuff I can actually pull off on a richly scheduled day; whole-food, nutritious meals that also taste fantastic.”
