As you’d know, we’re not much into fad diets. Healthy eating is all about munching on a wide variety of whole, unprocessed foods that, ideally, have arrived at your table with minimal harm to the planet. So why feature a recipe book that refers to the paleo diet, a way of eating that focuses on foods that were around in hunter-gatherer days rather than agriculture-based staples? Well, take away the paleo label and these recipes by blogging foodie Irena Macri are as healthy (and tasty) as all get-out. Macri isn’t didactic (she eats paleo 80 per cent of the time, indulging in morsels like gelato, rice and cheese for the balance) and her cookbook emphasises real food and natural ingredients. All her recipes are free from grains, gluten, legumes, processed sugar, artificial ingredients and chemicals. Best of all, though, she makes cooking fun.
