Paleo Eats by Kelly Bejelly of African American and Filipino descent is the first Paleo cookbook by a person of color.
In Paleo Eats, Kelly Bejelly focuses on Paleo cooking from the heart with recipes that make beloved traditional dishes Paleo-friendly. If you miss chocolate chip cookies hot from the oven, fried chicken on family picnics, the sweet-and-sour meatballs from your favorite Chinese restaurant, or your grandmother’s peach cobbler, this book is for you.
The wellness industry has a major diversity problem. As a woman of color working within the wellness industry trying to influence both credible and inclusive content, the lack of diversity is stark. As well as leading the change in bringing regulation and content standards to the sector, having difficult conversations is part of the territory. These are made even harder when your audience doesn’t think you fit into their world.
It’s frustrating to feel alienated in a space you hope to be a part of for personal growth. And that is why Kelly Bejelly is committed to making a change. Kelly finds motivation in knowing that faith requires action. She is optimistic about the future of the wellness industry; that it can and must become a better, more egalitarian and accepting place for all, particularly for POC (People of Color).
Kelly believes POC, especially black and brown women, will continue to rise and pave the way for inclusive and accessible health and wellness, and they will be better for it. She is committed to inspiring others to improve by not only sharing information that empowers people to live more mindfully, but also makes doing so more accessible.
Paleo Eats is jam-packed with over 100 tempting sweet and savory recipes, from condiments to desserts, all inspired by classic comfort foods. Delicious dishes like Coconut Cinnamon Cereal, Southern Fried Chicken, Lamb Gyro Burgers, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, and Devil’s Food Cake prove that eating Paleo is as fun and delicious as it is healthy. You’ll find something for everyone, even picky eaters, with recipes that are easy to make and even easier to love.
