Hi everyone, my friends at ButcherBox are offering a special promotion this month and I thought you’d want to hear about it.

All new customers who sign up via this link during the month of September will receive 2 lbs of their 100% grass-fed ground beef for the lifetime of their subscription.

I’ve mentioned ButcherBox several times before on my site, and they’re one of my favorite sources of quality meat. They deliver grass-fed beef (free of hormones and antibiotics), heritage breed pork, and free-range organic chicken directly to your door each month through curated or customizable boxes (complete with recipe cards). Their service is very economical, rounding out to less than $6 a meal. And by taking advantage of this promotion, two extra pounds of ground beef in every box is a pretty sweet bonus.

You may be wondering what to do with yourself, since you’ll be swimming in free ground beef for the rest of your life (well, the life of your subscription). Never fear – here are my eight favorite recipes that use ground beef:

Sukuma Wiki (Kenyan Braised Collard Greens with Ground Beef)
Beef Tinaktak (Chamorro Coconut Beef)
Spaghetti and Meatballs
Keema Matar (South Asian Spiced Mincemeat with Peas)
Picadillo Cubano (Cuban Beef Hash)
Bobotie (South African Mincemeat and Custard)
K├Âttbullar (Swedish Meatballs)
Shepherd’s Pie

Click here to take advantage of this offer, which expires at midnight PST on September 31st, 2018. Enjoy!

UPDATE: This eBook is now available, check it out!

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a great holiday! We decided at the last minute to spend our Christmas at Disney World (one of the perks of relocating to Florida). I’m in a giving mood, and so I wanted to share some news with you folks: I’m proud to announce that I am releasing a new eBook soon, called The Safe Starch Cookbook.

Along with compiling over 60 of my favorite carb-centered recipes, I used the eBook as an opportunity to put together all of my thoughts concerning this grossly misunderstood macronutrient. I discuss the historical precedence for starch consumption, the cost-effectiveness of mindfully incorporating starches into your diet, and some ideas concerning portion sizes and food timing. Not just a big carb-fest, I designed The Safe Starch Cookbook to teach you about the judicious use of starch to increase meal satisfaction and balance macronutrients to overcome cravings.

The recipes are divided into four main categories: rice, potatoes, noodles, and other starches (starch flours and starchy vegetables). The eBook is an interactive PDF, and will work on any PC, tablet, or smart phone. I wrote and designed the whole book from scratch, and I’m really proud of it; to get an idea of the design, here is a sample recipe for Bangers and Kale Mash.

The Safe Starch Cookbook will be released through this site on February 1st, but it is available right now as part of a really cool package called The Family Resolution Revolution Bundle.

This bundle features a ton of resources to help your family kickstart their health, including cookbooks, meal plans, eGuides, and annual digital subscriptions to Paleo Magazine and Paleo Living Magazine. It also comes with over $200 in discounts for Paleo-friendly products, too. All told, the $39 bundle comes with more than $1,000 worth of content. If you’re looking to grab some great resources for the New Year (and get early access to The Safe Starch Cookbook), this is a great way to do it. The Family Resolution Revolution Bundle only runs until January 4th, so be sure to check it out!

Please note that by clicking on the above link I receive a commission of the bundle sale.

I have another project in the works, but I’m not quite ready to share it yet – but soon! For now, let me know what you think of The Safe Starch Cookbook, and enjoy this time with family and friends.

Great news! The Kindle version of my cookbook is part of a one-day sale next week, for only $.99 (normally $9.99)! If you’ve ever wanted to have a portable version of The Ancestral Table handy, this will be a great time to grab it; for example, I think it would be really convenient for you to have access to my recipes while grocery shopping. That’s worth a dollar, right? Nothing beats the feeling of flipping trhough a paper book, and truth be told navigating a Kindle cookbook takes a bit of effort, but you can’t argue with the price! (Also note that there is a “Give as a Gift” button on the Amazon site – hint hint.)

Bear in mind that most smart phones have a Kindle app which will allow you to access the book, so you don’t need an actual Kindle to enjoy my book while on the go. There are even Kindle desktop apps for those of you without smart phones. I actually don’t make any money off the book when it’s sold at this price – I’m just happy to get it into your hands and spread the word about delicious food.

This sale is part of a community-wide event, with plenty of other great eBooks on sale at the same time:

Note that some of the books above will be on sale for $1.99 vice $.99 because of length, but we don’t know which books (if any) will be at the higher (outrageous! ridiculous!) price.
