If you’d like to see a full 31 page flip book, including sample recipe to the following, click here!


Included are some sample recipes, which you can find more information on within blog posts on our site:

This recipe is currently on our site, but it’s called Spaghetti Squash with Offal Meat Sauce – this variation offers a kid-friendly favorite, meatballs, as well as an option to avoid offal if you find it awful!

Shakey Pork BBQ is currently on our site, although we updated the photos for the book. It’s one of our favorite recipes though, one we make often because the kids beg to dip their meat in it. The kids love to help with the rub, it’s what we made in our promo video with the kids (notice Wes licking his lips!)

One of our most popular recipes on the site are Pumpkin Pucks, which helped “launch” our site into being a recipe index for gluten-free and paleo families! The updated layout in ELaD makes it even more fun for a kids to pick this as a treat to make with you!

But we’re not just repeating the site; 75% of the book is NEW! At over 100 recipes & food projects, that’s a LOT of new recipes to enjoy! Check out some of them in our video preview!




In addition to the allergen icons on each page, the book also offers an Allergen Index at the back of the book by chapter; if you’re looking for a nut- & egg-free snack, all you need do is look at a simple chart! We promise, it’s pretty simple! And remember, ALL recipes are grain-, dairy-, legume- and refined-sugar free: so no recipes include wheat, corn, soy or casein.

    Thanks for the preview! I finally got around to pre-ordering my copy! I really like the layout and all the bright colors!

    I am looking forward to handing this over to my kids and telling them they can pick ANYTHING they want me to make.

    Thank you for the hard work making a kid friendly cookbook that features actual REAL food that is good for all of us. Imagine a kids cookbook featuring just REAL food! We don’t have anything like that at home which is just sad when you think about it. We will definitely be throwing away one of our lame kid cook books to make room for this on our shelf.

    Is it March yet?

    This looks great! I love pumpkin pucks. Are you going to fifer the book in a ebook version?

      It’s being published by a legit publisher who usually always offers books on kindle and other similar apps/products – just takes a few extra weeks, I think. Thanks!
