What a great idea! While many of us wrestle with adding variety to our cooking at home, or are unhappy with local restaurant choices, Russ Crandall was busy figuring out how to re-create his favorite fast food and take-out recipes. At home. Paleo. Healthy. Paleo Takeout is the result, and it’s a winner!
I think this book is genius. Crandall keeps the recipe prep time under one hour, and he’s set them up to serve four people, with 8 ounces of protein each. Knowing this, I’m confident trying any recipe.
Crandall brags about how close in taste his fried chicken, burrito bowls, chicken nuggets and Italian meatballs are to the originals. I’m excited at how healthy and different in composition they are from the same-old fast food joints surrounding every town in America.
But there is so much more than making popular recipes tasty and healthy. That’s the loss-leader, really. Stay for his take on how to incorporate potatoes, dairy, rice and legumes in the Paleo world. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, all the noodle recipes in these pages. Yup, in a Paleo cookbook!
Paleo Takeout is fun. Russ Crandall is an interesting writer with a great attitude about food and health, and a mission to spread a realistic message about Paleo eating and food prep. I’ll be reading cover to cover, and dipping in to recipes on a regular basis. Oven Pork Adobo, here I come!
