Review, Giveaway & Frittatta Muffins from Nom Nom Paleo’s Food For Humans

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. Do you love Nom Nom Paleo like we do? When the talented dynamic duo at Nom Bomb Industries announced a new cookbook, I don’t believe we have ever gotten so excited about a new paleo book. And we want you to get excited too! Stay tuned to the end of the post because we are GIVING AWAY a copy of Food for Humans!

Are you ready for a change from your typical, boring paleo cookbook? Do you crave a fun and creative book, including crude humor, that isn’t just for children? Well, have no fear! Nom Nom Paleo is here! Michelle and Henry, your red paleo superheroes have created the awesome sauciest (#awesomesauce) cookbook yet released!

Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans

All of the delightful whimsy of the Nom Team is here, with their cartoons and comics and humor, but in a handheld, incredibly high-quality paper version. As we noted in our review of their app, we love NNP’s recipes. And trying out 3 separate recipes from Food for Humans did not change our minds!

Walnut Prawns with Easy Cauli-Rice

Walnut Prawns from Nom Nom Paleo Food For Humans on PaleoParents.com

A week or so back, it was snowing in Virginia and we were so tired from shoveling and chasing stir crazy children that Aunt Jackie declared that she would be the one making dinner. Luckily for all of us, Food for Humans was sitting on the counter! What she prepared was simply divine. Walnut shrimp transforms simple sauteed shrimp into an absolute treat. The crunchy sweet walnut shrimp paired with NNP’s unique and tasty spin on creamy cauliflower rice makes a tremendous meal.

And it took so short a time and was so simple to prepare that Jackie declared that this would be her go to quick and easy meal the next time she was stuck in the kitchen with our children who wear PJs all-day every-day, if given the opportunity. We look forward to eating these more often!

Prosciutto Wrapped Frittata Muffins

But we didn’t stop there, later that week we made her frittata muffins too… well, kinda. When we set out the prosciutto on the counter with plans to make them (as we prepped the other dishes) the children absconded with the entire bag and ate all the prosciutto! So, we subbed bacon and it was still quite delicious!

  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, rotating the tray from back-to-front halfway through the cooking process. The muffins are done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Cool the muffins in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

You’ll notice in this photo that we also made Brittany Angell’s Coffee and Cookie Brownie Bars and a new recipe from us for Holiday Hash (coming soon) to go with the frittatas. DELIGHTFUL MEAL. Boys ate 2nds and 3rds. Highly recommended!
