About the Author

Russ Crandall is the talented home chef behind The Domestic Man, a leading food blog in the Paleo, gluten-free, and whole foods communities. In his 20s he suffered a number of life-threatening illnesses, was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune condition—and was sent home with a lifetime's worth of medications. Disenchanted with modern medicine, Russ started searching for his own answers and quickly discovered that eating a gluten-free, nutrient-rich diet instantly alleviated most of the medical issues that had plagued him for years.

Taking cues from his undergraduate studies in history and his travels around the world, Russ quickly discovered that traditional dishes—those that people ate just a few generations ago—inherently embody healthy principles because they were created at a time before processed foods existed. During the day he serves as a Russian translator in the U.S. Navy, and in the evening he can be found tinkering with traditional recipes. He and his family live in Baltimore but consider Hawaii home.

AWESOME!!! Easy to read & understand, and won't make you run out to get a bunch of stuff that you may not have in your pantry! Gorgeous pictures also....wish it was a,"scratch & sniff", book!!

Not your typical Paleo cookbook.  Loaded with good food prepared from easy to find or already on-hand ingredients.

I have made several recipes from this book during the few weeks I have owned it. I have learned a lot and loved everything I have made. This book makes it easy to stick to my "perfect health diet" and enjoy every minute of it. I would recommend this book to EVERYONE who likes to cook!
