Chatting with Diana Rodgers on the Modern Farm Girls Podcast | The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook Review

-this post includes affiliate links-

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Diana Rodgers, host of The Modern Farm Girls Podcast and author of Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go and The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook and fellow chicken and duck keeper. We had fun talking about chickens, ducks, gardening and eating healthy. Of course we talked about Diana's new cookbook and a bit about my new book due out this fall. Just two farm girls chatting over cups of coffee. You can listen HERE

A few weeks later, Diana sent me a copy of her new book The Homegrown Paleo Cookbook as a thank you for appearing on her show. I was really excited to receive it because although I don't necessarily follow a Paleo diet - and honestly am not even sure about all the 'rules' of Paleo eating - after reading her book, I know that if Paleo means eating lots of fresh, nutritious foods while they're in season, without feeling like you're depriving yourself of anything, I'm all over that!

Her book is beautifully photographed. It includes tons of recipes using garden produce, fresh eggs and meat, but also includes growing and planting tips, tips on setting up a homestead whether you have 1/8 acre, 1/4 acre or more land to work with, and how to raise all kinds of animals from chickens to goats to bees. She shares tips on caring for your cast iron pans and making your own candles and soap.

Of course there are recipes, lots and lots of recipes arranged seasonally, and each accompanied by a gorgeous photograph and easy to follow instructions using everyday ingredients that you can easily grow yourself. It includes such delectable dishes as Cinnamon-Basil Breakfast Sausages, Grilled Eggplant Stacked with Indian-Spiced Beef, Cardamom-Ginger Pots de Creme, Sea Scallops with Ramps and Wilted Lamb's Quarters and my personal favorite Rhubarb Ginger Sauce.

But more than a cookbook, it's a true lifestyle book, meant to inspire and encourage us all to eat healthier, live better and try our hand at raising a few animals and vegetables! I highly recommend it. I know it has a permanent place on my kitchen counter.

  1. No rules really to the Paleo way of eating, just real whole unprocessed food. If possible make it organic, grass fed, pastured, how food was before we started messing with it.

  2. Oh that looks so pretty! I have Practical Paleo (sort of - it's my stepdaughter's) but I could definitely use this one too!

  3. I love it! Sounds so common sensical. If I were to 'diet', that would be how I would eat. Oh, wait, that IS how I eat!
