Each month, we have one book that is featured. This means it only costs you $5! Take advantage of this great deal to add to your collection and try some delicious new recipes!
This month’s book is Against the Grain.If you need gluten or grain-free meals or are on GAPS — or just want something different — this is perfect! Salisbury steak, beef tips with portobello mushrooms, chicken in sun-dried tomato-cream sauce, white bean vanilla cake and more! Eat and enjoy!
Okay, I don’t normally publish a second post in the middle of the day. But I wanted to tell you all about this deal, because it expires tomorrow at 8 AM — too late for me to just tell you tomorrow morning!
When you’re new to real food, one of the major struggles you may face is you — or your family — missing those former favorite meals. You know…those casseroles created with stuffing mix, canned soups, spice packets, and so on. They were easy, they were yummy. And they were, unfortunately…junk.
It’s hard to tell yourself or your family “We’ll never have that meal again.” Who wants to eat real food if it’s all about deprivation?
But that’s where this book comes in: Better Than a Box. The entire goal of the book is to teach you how to “reverse engineer” your favorite processed recipes, all with real food! It contains 100 pages of information on how and why you can do this, plus several example recipes that show you step-by-step how the process works.
Later in the book, you’ll find a number of “remade” recipes that are ready-to-g0, as well as several recipes for favorite ingredients: “cream of” soup, salad dressing mixes, dry onion soup mix, bouillon cube substitute, stuffing mix, pie crust, “Bisquick” substitute, and more.
Basic Pepper Steak
Dad’s Cheeseburger Helper
Easy Chicken & Biscuits and Chicken Pot Pie
Grandma’s Tuna Noodle Casserole
Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
Simple Onion Pot Roast
Spicy Chicken Cheesy Dip
Southern Banana Pudding
…and lots more
It comes with printable versions of several recipes, as well.

What I Think
This book normally sells for $16.95. Would I pay that much for it? Honestly…no. I love to experiment in the kitchen and develop my own recipes, and I already have this skill set. I can “create” just about anything and don’t need a guide to do it. But…given that I have several of my own cookbooks for sale, you probably already knew that. I don’t think everyone, or even most people, are like me, though.
Most people need a guide of some sorts to help them get started, especially if they are new to real food or even new to cooking in general. Katie has a reputation for being very detailed. (In fact, to some newbies, this book may be a bit overwhelming. Luckily you can take it a step at a time, go back and read it another day, try a few recipes and worry about learning to actually reverse-engineer your own later, that sort of thing.)
However. Until tomorrow at 8 AM, Better Than a Box costs just $1.99. Is it worth it for that price? Absolutely. Even if you have the skill set and are just looking for a few new recipes, it’s worth it.
You can also choose to buy the Kindle version (which only works on Kindle; the PDF works on any device), which is just $0.99!
If you’re intrigued, even a little bit — buy it now. For $1 – $2 you can’t miss. If you wait, though, the price goes up to $16.95 and then it’s a much harder decision. Real foodies have to take advantage of good deals when they can!
