BE MINDFUL TO USE 8SAFE INGREDIENTS when re-creating these recipes.For example: some recipes call for oats, so you'll need to use gluten free oats to keep it 8safe.

Super Natural Every Day

If you were to ask me which cookbooks are my favorite — this one would definitely make the list.

My copy of Super Natural Every Day is well worn (to say the least). The cover is torn, pages dog-eared & bookmarked, and the contents are lovingly splattered with food particles and hand-written notes. This cookbook has some mileage on it!

This cookbook turned me on to the incredible flavors and easy style of cooking when using whole foods. For me, it beautifully marries the flavor found in simple foods while sparking my creativity and sense of adventure. I've found a lot of the recipes throughout the cookbook can be adapted to be 8SAFE (with a little creativity). Heidi gives you lots of advice and the confidence to experiment with the recipes on your own — and I totally appreciate that! And with so many great recipes it would be a valuable resource beyond the 8SAFE Program.

Below is a list of recipes found in Super Natural Every Day that can easily be made 8SAFE as written (using ingredients that are free of gluten and the top eight allergens). Following the first list you'll find other recipes that can be made 8SAFE simply by leaving out the specified ingredient. 

And later in the week I'll show you how easy it can be to convert the Macaroon Tart recipe (from the cookbook) into an 8SAFE option!

Cuba!

Written as a love letter to a country that captured the hearts of the authors, this cookbook can transport you to the streets of Cuba. The colorful photos and engaging stories give a glimpse into the culture and traditions surrounding Cuban food, and is a wonderful way to cure an afternoon of wanderlust.

I'm all fired up for a cuban feast this weekend — maybe Ribs with Guava BBQ Sauce or Braised Garlic Chicken with Yellow Rice? Some Picadillo and Yuca Fries. I don't know about you, but my mouth is definitely watering. Mojito anyone? 

Vegetable oil is used extensively throughout the recipes in this cookbook. Be mindful to use an 8SAFE cooking oil (such as canola oil) and not soy oil or a vegetable oil containing soy. Alternately, you can try substituting with 100% pure olive oil.

Inspiralize Everything

It's time to dust off your spiralizer!

This cookbook will give your spiralizer a workout — that's for sure! It's a great reference for creating dishes that make the most of this unique kitchen gadget, and it's organized really well too. I love that the chapters are broken down according to which fruit or vegetable is highlighted in the recipe — which is really great when you have a lonely head of cabbage in the fridge that you don't know what to do with! There's also a handy chart in the back of the book that lists the recipes by categories, such as gluten-free, paleo, vegan, etc.

The following recipes from the cookbook Inspiralize Everything by Ali Maffucci can easily be made 8SAFE following the original recipe.
