After a serious wakeup call about a lot of the foods that we eat from my current plan, "The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution," I have been trying to find different new recipes to help me maintain the 17 pounds that I lost over the summer using Hungry Chick. After leafing through the Grain Brain Cookbook, I decided to buy it. I can't get over how helpful these recipes are. There was a big expectation that these recipes would just rehash what we all knew already: eggs, avocados, breakfast shakes, grass-fed meat...but there's SO MUCH beyond that. There is something for everyone in this book. My favorite is probably Dr. Perlmutter's take on Eggs Benedict. It's a heavy duty recipe, but the pay-off is worth it! I had it for lunch and it was delicious and fulfilling.

A year ago I bought Grain Brain, started to follow the advice therein, and within days all my joint pain vanished, I stopped feeling sluggish in the afternoons, and I started losing weight. Within weeks my prediabetic blood sugars were in the normal range. I became a firm believer in a low carbohydrate, high healthful fat, modest protein diet, and I give Dr. Perlmutter credit for being the first one to teach me how to make these health gains. My husband also joined on board, and we are both reaping the benefits of his advice. We eagerly bought this cookbook, not knowing what it would contain, other than being low carb. Turns out it has many recipes I have not found online, or in my other books, and the vast majority of these recipes I would serve to company. The pictures are beautiful (I wish there were more of them!) and the instructions are easy to follow. Thus far, I have made the recipes for tomato sauce, spaghetti squash, tomato soup, coconut bursts, perfect roast chicken, green beans with walnuts, and salmon with almonds. My next project will be to make the roast chicken with pesto and ricotta cheese. Thank you, Dr. Perlmutter, for all your work! This is a book I plan on using and re-using, and it would make a great gift for the upcoming holiday season!

This book was more informative about how we should eat than just talking about grains. One thing I learned is that agave nectar is higher in fructose than high fructose corn syrup; what an eye opener as a lot of chefs use this instead of sugar.

There are tons of cookbooks out there.  This one combines some of the best science on health as the companion to Grain Brain and it is loaded with its own science and information right in the cookbook!  So far, this has been a great resource in my kitchen to whipping up something quick for me and my family for dinner and breakfast!  Thanks Dr Perlmutter.

Wonderful cookbook!  I was concerned that it would have voting recipes.  But, I was pleasantly surprised by the variety and flavor profiles. After a while of being grain free I really don't miss it too much.  I haven't tried the recipes yet, but I am excited to give them a try.
