I read exclusively on my Kindle these days.
With one exception.
I cannot function with an eBook. It just does not work for me.
Which is a problem when you are re-learning how to cook/bake in a grainfree-sugarfree-paleo-primal kind of way.
This has led to a major cookbook collection for me over the past year. I wrote about some of my new books about a year ago. You can view that here. But a lot of things have changed in a year.
I wandered into Barnes and Nobles with Lulu who had some gift cards burning in her little new purse. While I left her in the ‘teen’ section I sought this out.
I am particular about what books I will buy. It’s kind of like inviting a new friend into your home. It feels like a commitment. Am I willing to try things out of my comfort zone, are there really good pictures, what makes this book different from the last I purchased, will my family even consider trying it?
I mainly purchase my cookbooks on Amazon where I can read hundreds of reviews before I select one.
But when you see them all in person – woah – that’s a LOT of Paleo books. I am impressed. And pleased that my way of eating is becoming a two shelf subject at a store.
These are the ones I am cooking from these days and the ones I will reference with most of my posts. Some are primal, some are paleo, some use sugar, some don’t. But I am learning to adapt my needs from a recipe and that is the point right?! (most images from Amazon)
And while gluten free books usually don’t fit with my way of eating I did see this on the shelf at B&N!
And was excited as I follow most of the blogs of the books I posted but I especially love Jo-Lynn Shane’s blog for her food, fashion and family journey she shares!
I look forward to adding to my collection. Do you have a favorite book that it is not in my list?!
