Natural Contents “Good Food For Everyone” Cookbook Review & Giveaway

You may remember how much I loved the food from a small business called Natural Contents Kitchen. Now simply Natural Contents, duo Danielle and Jennifer have released a cookbook! I am beyond thrilled that I can now make their delicious, healthy creations in my own kitchen.

Good Food For Everyone: Farm Fresh Clean Eating is entirely gluten free, grain free, soy free, mostly paleo, dairy-free friendly and vegan friendly. Once self-proclaimed fast food junkies, Danielle and Jennifer made a total food and lifestyle switch in an effort to change the health of their family. They embraced their local farmers market and everything changed for the better. They are now on a mission to inspire others on their journey to a clean and healthy lifestyle.

What I love about the book:

  • It is visually stunning. Flipping through the pages you’ll be transported to a rustic country house. Just looking at the pictures makes me feel incredibly relaxed and at peace. 
  • The recipes are very healthy and include lots of fresh produce. Even traditional desserts like apple tarts are made with healthier ingredients like almond flour and natural sugars.
  • All of the recipes are made with REAL food. No crazy fillers or junk items. Just nutritious food.
  • The book has a very personal flair – as if Danielle is a friend and made this book just for you.
  • It includes a list of handy pantry staples and recommended kitchen equipment.
  • The recipes are easy to follow and most recipes have a “Quick Tips” section to help you along. Cooking/baking healthy recipes from scratch does not have to be hard!

There are over 80 recipes including:

  • Rosemary Sweet Potato Quiche
  • Kale & Onion Fritata
  • Curried Kuri Squash, Apple & Pear Soup
  • Sweet Potato Rutabaga Casserole
  • Italian, Tex-Mex or Teriyaki Meatballs
  • Slow Cooker Short Ribs
  • Roasted Lemon Cauliflower No Bean Hummus
  • Rosemary Roasted Nuts
  • Coconut Chia Parfaits with Fresh Berries
  • Blueberry Coffee Cake
  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Chocolate Beet Mini Muffins
  • Pumpkin Panna Cotta
  • Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls
  • Watermelon Honey Shrub

I dived into the book and immediately baked the gluten/grain free Cheese Crackers. Made with almond and tapioca flours, I agree with Danielle when she wrote they are “crazy addictive”. She warns you that even thought the crackers have a shelf life of 14+ days, they will definitely be eaten much faster. Kris and I love them, and I’ve already baked them several times. And they are incredibly easy to make! I’m never buying store bought crackers again.

I can’t wait to cook my way through the entire book.

Perfectly Free Review & Giveaway

One of my current intentions is to eat less sugar. However, I’ve found that when I have an overwhelming craving, it is important for me to have a not-so-bad-for-you option so I don’t binge on a pint of GF chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. That is where Perfectly Free comes in.

Perfectly Free from Incredible Foods are bite sized non-dairy frozen treats. With a coconut cream-based vanilla center, each ball is wrapped in a layer of real blueberry, cherry, salted caramel or cocoa. Each ball only contains 25-30 calories and 5g of sugar. Having just one gives me the sweet kick I crave, yet doesn’t destroy all of the healthy eating that I did throughout the day.

Perfectly Free treats are free from:

  • Gluten/wheat
  • Dairy/lactose
  • Soy
  • Peanuts
  • Egg
  • Fish
  • Shellfish
  • Tree nuts (Note: they do contain coconut)

They are also

  • Certified Gluten Free
  • Kosher
  • Vegan Friendly
  • Non GMO
  • Made in a facility that is free of the top 8 allergens (Note: coconut is on site and in the products)

Blueberry was my favorite flavor. I found that the natural flavor of the blueberry really came through and was highly complimented by the vanilla center. I also really enjoyed the salted caramel – I’m a big fan of caramel and found that this treat wasn’t overly sweet, but satisfied my sweet tooth and caramel cravings.

Perfectly Free products are available at stores around the country. Visit www.perfectlyfree.com for more info and a store locator.

GIVEAWAY!! One winner will receive $50 worth of Perfectly Free products! Enter via the rafflecopter link below. Continental US only. Giveaway ends Thursday February 9th at 11:59pm EST.
