  • Mmmm...the smell of a freshly printed book. Eat Drink Paleo Cookbook is back in stock kids!!! Thank you to my talented designer @carlahackett for making it even more awesome for the second edition. Few extra recipes in there as well ;-) Big thanks to everyone who's bought and enjoyed it so far. I love every recipe pic that you tag me in or is hash tagged with #eatdrinkpaleo. For a self-published author, your support means everything. The fact that we sold out of the last print run so quickly made me reassured me that I made the right career move. Get 'em from my website, Amazon.com and soon on Amazon.co.uk. And of course a few shops and cafes in Australia, check out my resources page for stockists. #paleo #eatdrinkpaleo #food #cooking #foodie #primal #jerf #paleouk #paleoaustralia #paleocook #cookbook
