Paleo-friendly meets family-friendly in this beautiful, full-color how-to guide and cookbook that teaches readers how to cut all grains out of their diets without giving up flavorful, delicious food.
When Carrie Vitt was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, she was put on an elimination diet to cleanse her system that forbid gluten and grains. Failing to find recipes that followed her strict diet guidelines and still were delicious, she began experimenting in her own kitchen. Her organic, grain-free creations not only satisfied her own palate, but pleased friends and family as well. While she eventually reversed her thyroid disease, she continues to champion eating grain free.
In this beautiful full-color cookbook, she provides delicious dishes for a workable organic, grain-free lifestyle. Included are a diverse range of recipes for everything from pie crust and homemade nut butter to Pork Carnitas Breakfast Crepe Tacos and Grain-Free Biscuits, Avocado with Mango-Shrimp Salsa, Roasted Garlic Alfredo with Chicken and Vegetables, and Cauliflower “Fried Rice.” Here, too, are kid-friendly recipes such as Squash Macaroni and Cheese, Slice-and-Bake Cookies, and a Classic Birthday Cake with Buttercream Frosting.
In addition to sources for healthy ingredients, time-saving ideas, health tips, and 125 easy grain-free recipes, there are also simple dairy-free and Paleo adaptations for each recipe (it’s as simple as choosing coconut oil in place of butter!). Written in Carrie’s warm, inviting style, this helpful sourcebook is the perfect entrée to a healthy, nourishing diet that brings grain-free eating into the mainstream.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In 2011 I discovered Carrie Vitt’s website “Deliciously Organic ” and her first book Deliciously Organic. I admired her determination to improve her then current state of health by researching what she was eating and how she might be able to become healthier. I have been a fan ever since. November 18th was a big day for Carrie, her new cookbook; “The Grain-Free Family Table” was released. I received my copy last week and what I really like is that the recipes are clearly written, the photo’s are a beautiful blend of family, friends and need I mention the food…looks delicious! I felt like I was invited to join Carrie in the kitchen to chop veggies, prepare a meal then pull up a chair at her table and share a great meal. Warmth radiates from the pages and her journey to improve her health is encouraging and heartfelt. When I first started blogging my focus was on encouraging my family, friends and anyone who would listen to “just cook something” and avoid pre-packaged frozen meals and drive-thru. My focus is still about teaching children and parents to prepare home cooked meals however I am also working on converting my recipes to real food and organic products. After reading Carries story and The Grain-Free Family Table, I can think of a number of friends and family who have health issues and could benefit from Carrie’s experience and her book. The first recipe that I selected to cook was Eggplant and Zucchini Lasagna, my husband loved this meal! I had enough for two dinners and one lunch, and as most of us know anything with red sauce is usually even better the next day! This is a very kid’s friendly recipe; I might add sautéed onion next time. As I always say “make it your own” and just cook something! Next up Pork Carnitas in the crock pot, from The Grain-Free Family Table, of course. You will have to purchase the cook book for the recipe; however I will share with you that the seasoning has just enough kick to delight your taste buds and an added ingredient provides a citrus finish…Now you just have to purchase the book to find out what I am raving about. For the all the recipe’s click on the link and purchase your copy The Grain-Free Family Table, the perfect gift for yourself or someone you care about! Thank you Carrie for sharing your experience, knowledge and passion for cooking healthy meals. Cheers! Kary
I can't wait to try all these recipes - they look delicious. The cookbook is beautiful. Great job Carrie!
