Caitlin Weeks is a certified nutrition consultant who runs the wellness blog: Grass Fed Girl. Caitlin spent years as personal trainer doing endurance exercise and eating diet food but in 2010 she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and looked for natural methods to heal. She went to nutrition school and started her health blog while beginning to follow a Paleo diet.
Nabil came to the USA from North Africa in 2004 bringing his love of food and his traditional recipes. He went to culinary school and worked for various mentors until landing a job at a 5 star international hotel in downtown San Francisco. Nabil went Paleo in 2011 to support his wife on her journey and noticed improvements in energy and focus.
Caitlin wanted to cook Nabil’s mother’s authentic Algerian recipes to make him feel at home, so they worked together to adapt them to fit Paleo guidelines. New York Times bestselling author and good friend of the couple Diane Sanfilippo loved their food so much that she collaborated with them on their new book: Mediterranean Paleo Cooking.
It took two years to bring this book to fruition and was a labor of love for all involved. The recipes are perfect for anyone who loves eating fresh, real, whole food with unique flavor profiles.
The 432 page tome incudes authentic recipes with modifications for special dietary restrictions including: egg free, nut free, autoimmune protocol (AIP), GAPS/ SCD and lower carb so it will can be appeal to even people who are not strict Paleo. Mediterranean Paleo Cooking will take your palate on a vacation with pizza, pasta, falafel, pitas and a healthy dose of traditional tajines over cauliflower couscous.
