Now a registered holistic nutritionist living in Winnipeg, Buck channels those hunter-gatherer instincts in “Buck Naked Kitchen” — a blog and now, a cookbook, where she bares her dietary struggles along with delectable solutions inspired by the seasons. The cookbook is the latest of a list of titles by popular young bloggers endorsed by the Whole30 diet program, which she credits with jump-starting her success.
Buck’s simple, free-spirited recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free, mostly Paleo, often vegetarian, and labeled accordingly. But you don’t have to be on a restricted diet to appreciate them. I’d make her creamy, warmly spiced Vegetable Chicken Curry again in a heartbeat (Get the recipe at ajc.com/cookbooks.). And I’d happily start my day with Apricot Chai Pudding Parfait, or end it with Vietnamese Charred-Pork Salad Bowls as the weather warms up.
