Not so long ago, Amber Beam was trapped in a vicious cycle of take-out meals and antacids. She followed the Standard American Diet complete with low-fat yogurt, whole-grain sandwiches, and pasta dinners. She became discouraged by her inability to lose weight, despite consistent workouts and calorie-cutting. Then her trainer turned her on to Paleo and a world filled with pork chops, omelets, and bacon. Needless to say, she didn’t look
An avid foodie and lover of all things epicurean, Amber had watched numerous cooking shows but rarely ventured into the kitchen to make a meal. Paleo changed her from a kitchen by-stander to a floundering cook. Refusing to give-in to sub-standard convenience foods, she taught herself to cook easy Paleo meals that tasted great. The meals had to be easy and satisfying for her and her (not yet Paleo) husband. After several months of intense recipe development and testing, she wrote and self-published Weeknight Paleo: 9 Weeks of Quick and Easy Gluten-free Meals, a cookbook that helps busy cooks (and novices) get quick, easy, and tasty Paleo meals on the table in 30 minutes or less.
Her blog, Paleo Savvy, highlights her culinary trials and tribulations, while giving readers the confidence and know-how to get in the kitchen and make a fantastic meal. The blog tackles tips and tricks for everything from slaying spaghetti squash to cooking the best bacon EVER! With a few culinary tricks and a solid recipe, Amber proves that even on your busiest weeknight, you can make a stress-free, delicious Paleo dinner the entire family will enjoy!
