Beautiful and delicious gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free recipes, fully endorsed by Whole30.

As millions of people know, one of the toughest things about completing the Whole30 is figuring out what to eat the other 335 days of the year. Kirsten Buck, creator of Buck Naked Kitchen, struggled with her weight and chronic eczema for years before she transformed her life through food. She adopted a mostly paleo way of eating—gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, healthy fats, no refined sugars—and experienced dramatic weight loss. Soon after she went on to win the first-ever “Next Whole30 Star” competition and is now a certified holistic nutritionist, sharing delicious and beautiful recipes on her blog and Instagram with thousands of fans. From her Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwich for lunch, to Moroccan Lamb Stew for dinner, to the stunning Summer Berry Galette to satisfy your sweet tooth, there is something for every taste. In addition, there are recipe basics for making your own mayo, yogurt, salad dressings, tahini, and more, which prove that healthy eating doesn’t have to break the bank.

WHOLE30 ENDORSED: Our second Whole30 endorsed cookbook with a logo burst on the cover, a foreword by Melissa Hartwig, and extensive marketing support from Whole30.

INCREDIBLE TRANSFORMATION STORY: The author experienced dramatic weight loss and remedied a lifetime of health issues such as chronic eczema by adopting the paleo lifestyle.

CANADIAN AUTHOR’S GROWING PLATFORM: The author was the first-ever winner of “The Next Whole30 Star” competition, chosen by W30 fans as their favorite. Now she is a certified holistic nutritionist with 76,000 Instagram followers, and she is in the early stages of developing video content for a Canadian TV production company.

PUBLISHING PARTNER: We will publish simultaneously with HMH in the US.
