Bare Root Sweets:  Now Available in eBook or paperback!

The positive response I’ve received on Bare Root has motivated me to begin a collection of cookbooks that will serve as inspiration for others to unite a Paleo/Primal diet with modern, familiar flavors. 

Quality ingredients promote maximum flavor in every recipe included.  Everything form investigating the proper handling of raw ingredients to the precisely lowest amount of sweetener a recipe needs to be appealing were given a great deal of consideration.  And because food is truly beautiful, I tried to let the finished products shine in their natural beauty as much as possible.

It should be addressed that we know our ancestors weren’t munching on dark chocolate truffles or coconut milk cheesecakes.  But the approach I’ve taken with these recipes (and the ingredients they contain) reflects back on my personal approach to the lifestyle, which is focusing on the nutrient density of the ingredients

I’ve made an effort to include many sugar-free dessert options that will satiate your sweet tooth.  My go-to Date Paste recipe works as a great sweetener and is noted in the recipes where it works well as a replacement.  Additionally, there are a few recipes that can be made without any sweetener at all if you’re on a 21DSD or simply wanting a guilt-free weeknight treat! 

All recipes are 100% my original creations.  And as many of them took quite a number of attempts to perfect, I’m extremely excited for you to try them!

Beat those sugar cravings by feeding your body desserts that nourish and leave you feeling satisfied.  Many of the recipes in Bare Root Sweets are high in fiber or protein, helping to keep the impact on your blood sugar down while still filling that dessert craving.

Special modifications to substitute sugars or eliminate it completely:  a concentrated version of my favorite Date Paste recipe is included the book and recipes that can handle the swap are noted.  Plus some of the recipes can be made without any sweetener at all!

You don’t need to sacrifice familiar flavors and sweet indulgences to be healthy.
