If you’re participating in the gym’s Whole30+1 (a.k.a. Whole May) this month — or even if you’re not — you should check out the Nom Nom Paleo iPad app.
CFPA’s own Michelle Tam (also known as Nom Nom Paleo, and a member of our Women’s Class) is responsible for this engaging and interactive cookbook for the iPad. Packed with Whole30-approved recipes and more than 1,500 step-by-step photos, this is an excellent resource for Paleo eaters on the lookout for delicious, healthy, and nutrient-dense dishes. For $4.99, you get 53 Paleo recipes (with 60 more recipes available for in-app purchase), along with a “Paleo 101” primer that explains why we eat whole, unprocessed, real foods (like meat, seafood, vegetables, fruits, and nuts) and avoid highly-processed and pro-inflammatory foods (like grains, legumes, and added sugar). You’ll also find an in-depth shopping guide, a 30-day meal planner, an interactive grocery list you can email, and much, much more.
The app is not yet compatible with first-generation iPads (a fix is on the way, and should be approved by Apple this week), but if you have an iPad 2 or 3, this is a fantastic tool that’ll help kickstart your month (or more!) of clean eats.
