Savor Traditional Tropical Cuisine the Paleo Way
Take a culinary trip to the Caribbean with Althea Brown’s lick-your-bowl-good dishes that are free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Althea highlights favorite dishes from her childhood in Guyana as well as recipes from Jamaica, Trinidad and more—all of which are full of bold flavors and fresh ingredients.
What could beat mouthwatering Jerk Chicken Under a Brick, Oven-Braised Oxtail or Brown Stew Fish? Perhaps only Althea’s Nutty Farine Pilaf, Salt Fish Cakes or craveable Coconut Sweet Bread! Recipes such as Shrimp Chow Mein, Cassava Couscous Salad and Pepper Steak swap out noodles and rice for nutrient-dense—and delicious!—ingredients like squash, cassava and cauliflower rice, resulting in wholesome Paleo-friendly meals that pack a big punch of flavor.
Whether you are reconnecting with family roots or looking to re-create your favorite dishes from a trip to the Caribbean, this collection is the only guide you’ll need to incorporate flavor-packed authentic dishes into your gluten-free or Paleo kitchen.
