Review and GIVEAWAY: 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook & Banana Vanilla Bean N’Oatmeal Recipe

{This giveaway has ended}

Today, January 6, 2014, is the start of one of the largest groups ever for the 21 Day Sugar Detox. Most people who have been paleo for a while have heard of this detox, and many more have even tried a round themselves. If you are new and just joining us, the 21 Day Sugar Detox is a program created by Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites, designed to be a quick reset for your body and your palate to help you bust your sugar cravings. We have done a few successful rounds ourselves, and our boys have even participated with just a few modifications. You can check out our posts about the rounds we have done (here, here, here, and here) and our review of the 21 Day Sugar Detox book . Today, a new member of our review team, Joanna, will give you an assessment of the companion 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook, and share a recipe for Banana Vanilla Bean N’Oatmeal! Stacy, lover of all things chia pudding, is particularly excited about this sugar-detox recipe and will be trying it personally when the next craving hits!

Make sure to read to the end of the post for details about how to win a copy!

With the holidays behind me, I was ready to quit all the cheating and Paleo treating, and I wanted to start the New Year off right.  I wanted to go super squeaky-clean Paleo.  Diane Sanfilippo’s latest mouth-watering masterpiece hit bookshelves just in time. Over one week, I made six recipes out of The 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook, and spent countless hours drooling over even more gorgeous photographs and meticulously crafted recipes and meal plans.

 

Whether you are sugar detoxing or not, I highly recommend everyone pick up a copy of The 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook for guilt-free meals that are simple enough for weeknight cooking, but so tasty that each meal feels like a great delight.  Before purchasing, here are a few thoughts to consider.

Finally, a “strict” Paleo cookbook!

 

That’s right, people. No “Paleo-ish” recipes here. You can cook every single recipe cover-to-cover any night of the week and not feel guilty about too many Paleo treats, filled with honey, maple syrup, or other “Paleo” sweeteners.  (Although, Diane certainly does supply a fair amount of treats sweetened only with green apples—to my great delight.)

 

Similarly, I was delighted to find very few recipes laden with calorically-dense almond meal.  With Diane’s book, I’m able to rest easy, and fill up on wholesome, delicious food that will help me meet my fitness and aesthetic goals. It’s for this reason that The 21DSD Cookbook will be the first that I grab from now on.

This book is for Paleo-neophytes and Paleo-purists alike!

I have not yet read the companion book to this, The 21 Day Sugar Detox, but Diane does an excellent job recapping the important pieces. I was particularly pleased to read how she meets her readers where they are.  For those who are new to Paleo and are currently eating low fat dairy and wheat, she has food recommendations that they include limited legumes and gluten free grains, as well as full fat dairy.  A few years ago when I started going Paleo, dairy was the only thing that kept me feeling sane.  Essentially Diane recommends you try only a little bit harder than where you are today. No sense in setting yourself up to fail. I’m so glad to see a flexible approach like this.   Not to worry, you die-hard Paleo-enthusiasts, there are no grain, dairy, or legume recipes to be found.  Chill out. ;)

Just as a small caveat: You may want to watch out for pricy ingredients.

 Paleo gets a bad rap for being expensive, but that’s not really what I’m angling at here.  Some of Diane’s recipes are truly “treats,” with special ingredients that I wouldn’t normally buy for typical weeknight dining.  For example, the halibut dish  and the banana n’oatmeal featured some specialty ingredients that can be pricy depending on where you buy them. Don’t get me wrong, both the halibut and the banana n’oatmeal were delicious and special, but they did send my weekly food bill higher than I am used to.

I know, I know, health is priceless, but all I’m saying is that you should carefully examine your ingredients list before going shopping if you are on a budget. Also, take note of those more expensive ingredients and just have them as a special treat, rather than all the time. Usually the ingredients that are more expensive are the ones we should have more sparingly anyway!

And what you’ve been waiting for! A recap of the recipes I tried…

Banana Vanilla Bean N’oatmeal

Perhaps one of the best Paleo breakfast recipes I have tried recently, this actually reminds me of banana pudding, not oatmeal, (the kind with the ‘Nilla Wafers) that I have fond non-Paleo memories of.  Actually, it’s better. You need to make this now. It was great for nightly make-aheads, as I was able to toss the jars into my purse for breakfast-on-the-go. Diane was kind enough to let us share the recipe here!

 

Banana Vanila Bean N'Oatmeal

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and set the bowl next to your stove.
  2. Slice the vanilla bean pod in half lengthwise, then using the tip of a paring knife, scrape out the seeds.
  3. Put the scraped out seeds, bean pod, coconut milk, and water in a saucepan and heat slowly over medium heat, stirring often.
  4. Once the mixture begins to simmer, stir more frequently. Continue to simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the vanilla bean pod and discard.
  6. Slowly pour a ladleful of the hot coconut milk mixture into the eggs as you whisk rapidly to incorporate. Then pour the coconut milk egg mixture back into the sauce pan while continuing to whisk.
  7. Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until spoon remains coated when dipped into the mixture.
  8. Pour the entire mixture into a blender, add the banana and blend until smooth, approximately 1 – 2 minutes.
  9. Add the cinnamon, salt and chia seeds and pulse a few times to disperse.
  10. Divide the mixture into 4 serving bowls, jars, or glasses; cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  11. Garnish with chopped nuts, bananas or more coconut milk poured over the top.
  12. To serve warm, reheat in a sauce pan over low heat until warmed though.

Notes

Need an Egg Free version? Omit the eggs and blend all the ingredients in a blender, adding the chia seeds at the very end. Can't have nuts? Just leave them out!

Apple Ginger Green Smoothie

The first words out of my husband’s mouth were “Oh, it’s a health smoothie!” I think that is beside the point.  It’s true that this smoothie is not sickie-sweet, but I found it refreshing and rich with coconut milk.  One word of caution—unless you have an ultra strong blender, you’ll be left with some flecks of spinach and ginger. It was not wholly unpleasant, but it just was not a perfectly creamy smoothie.

Fennel and Sage Meatballs

This was very easy to prepare, and the flavors were subtle. One note on the recipe—next time I’ll add less water too the sauce. Mine did not look quite as thick and lovely as Diane’s photo, so I spent extra time to reduce the sauce.

Portuguese Green Soup (Caldo Verde)

I doubled the recipe and served it for a dinner party, to rave reviews.  For some, this might be a little too spicy, but it hit all the right notes for me.

Cabbage-Wrapped Dumplings

Hmmm. How do I put this? I made this with double the shrimp and no pork, and it was delicious. BUT it was also a disaster when it came to wrapping into the steamed Napa cabbage. The cabbage was steamed, the shrimp were moist, and my fingers were pruny from all the fussing! This recipe is not to be missed, but it’s my personal preference to save yourself some trouble and serve this as a warm shrimp salad over sautéed cabbage or with cauli-rice.

Coconut Basil Halibut with Spinach

Yes, this recipe featured restaurant-level prices, but the flavor combinations were of the same caliber. With the richness of the coconut milk and the brightness of the lime juice I was sent to the moon with love. Even more, the simplicity of the recipes made it something anyone can recreate and enjoy the pleasures of Paleo restaurant dining. I cannot wait to make this again, perhaps in the summer time, with fresh garden basil.

 

With that, I highly recommend you try out The 21 Day Sugar Detox Cookbook for fresh, complaint, fast, and tasty meals that you will make again and again. I wish you all a healthy and happy New Year. Happy detoxing!

So is anybody out there thinking about taking the plunge and tackling that sugar monster?

We have had great results, and we love this detox because while it is a challenge, its a doable one. The restrictions are well thought out, and completely manageable. There are plenty of fun foods that are 21 Day Sugar Detox compliant, and we even have a 21DSD Pinterest board , as well as many recipes here on Paleo Parents with the 21DSD tag, like our crazy popular “Healthiest Ice Cream Ever” that is approved by Diane herself! 

The-Healthiest-Ice-Cream-Ever-by-PaleoParents

About Joanna Snead

Joanna Snead has written 4 post in this blog.

Stacy and I met at a previous job, and bonded over our love of Cosi’s Tomato Basil Soup -though neither of us eat it any more! Our love of food has been a bond that has outlasted jobs, wholesale lifestyle changes, and the birth of TWO of Stacy and Matt’s paleo kids! I am a CrossFitter, backcountry skiier, cycle-tourist, white water kayaker, traveller, cook, baker, and digital product manager. I first started CrossFit three years ago as an accidental New Year’s resolution– probably the only one I’ve ever kept! I absolutely love snatches and squats, and hate toes-to-bar and double unders. I’ve been paleo (and paleo-ish) for two years and happily married to a vegetarian for even longer. ♥ As such, I am the master at turn one dish into two to please us both. As a recovering grain-aholic, when I went paleo, I lost weight, gained muscle, learned how to stop my constant tummy trouble, and learned how to stop feeling terrible after a workout. My current goal is knee injury recovery. (Don’t worry, it wasn’t from CrossFit!)

    Thank you for posting such wonderful pics using Diana’s 21 DSD. I recently purchased her book and created an FB event to get all my friends to try it out. And thus far, they are enjoying the great recipes. I never thought I would like to cook. And your picture of the banana smoothie has me wanting to make it tomorrow morning for breakfast. Can’t wait to try it! Thanks again for sharing.

    I am doing my first round of the 21dsd! I’m on D3/L2! I’m really excited to try out the Banana Vanilla Bean N’Oatmeal! I will have to ask Diane a question about the Vanilla – Have you or anyone not used a vanilla bean pod and just used vanilla extract? I want to make this tonight for tomorrow morning before my run! Thanks :)

  • Bethany

    I am in awe of how much the n’oatmeal is like the real thing! Excellent, thank you for sharing.

  • Stephanie S.

    Do you think almond milk could be used in place of the coconut milk, or would it throw the consistency off?

    • http://PaleoParents.com Stacy & Matt

      Almond milk is generally a lot thinner than coconut milk, so the end result might not be as pudding like, or thick. You might need to add one or two more egg yolks to achieve the same consistency. Let us know if you try it and if it works so that we can edit the recipe with that substitution idea!

  • Nicole L. Benoit

    do you know why I may have problems with the egg/coconut milk mixture ‘breaking’. The egg seems to cook a little and separate. So when the milk mixture is done it’s not smooth. What am I doing wrong?

    • http://PaleoParents.com Stacy & Matt

      In step #6 it says:
      “Slowly pour a ladleful of the hot coconut milk mixture into the eggs as you whisk rapidly to incorporate. Then pour the coconut milk egg mixture back into the sauce pan while continuing to whisk.”
      This is called “tempering” the egg. It’s important to do this step slowly and not to skip it. Basically, you bring the coconut milk mixture up to a hot temperature on the stove, and so to incorporate the colder egg yolks into the hot coconut mixture without them scrambling, you need to slowly ladle in some of the hot coconut milk into the bowl with your whisked egg yolks. I’m talking very slowly, in a small stream while constantly whisking. You slowly add more ladle-fulls of the hot coconut mixture, and you slowly bring the temperature of the egg yolks up. Then when you add the whole mixture back into the pan, it doesn’t break when you continue to cook it, and the yolks thicken the custard. Hope this explanation helps!

      • Nicole L. Benoit

        I seem to be following these instructions to the letter. A very slow stream and constant, fast whisking. Should I check the egg mixture to see if the temp is hot? Do I want the milk to cool some? Once I tried two or three ladles of milk. But assumed ‘a ladleful’ means one ladle. I use a large soup ladle. But it doesn’t ‘scramble’ until I mix the eggs back into pot with all the milk and heat for the second time. During the 5-10 minute thickening is when it progressively scrambles. Then I also slowly incorporate the egg mixture back into the milk as well. Should this be fast pouring? It seems to be just some intuitive piece of the puzzle I’m missing.

        • http://PaleoParents.com Stacy & Matt

          Honestly, if you are doing what I suggested, not quite sure why it isn’t working for you. :( This recipe has been tested by many people and they haven’t had that problem so I’m not sure what the issue could be. So sorry I couldn’t help.

          • Nicole L. Benoit

            oh well, thanks. I’ll keep trying. The end product doesn’t end up lumpy so I still love the recipe. Maybe I’ll figure it out eventually.
