The comfortable kitchen

105 laid-back, healthy, and wholesome recipes

My second New York Times Bestselling cookbook, The Comfortable Kitchen, is filled with 105 wholesome recipes you’ll feel comfortable making and comfortable feeding your family. Similar to my first book, many of the meals are fully Paleo compliant — or at the very least Paleo-ish — and there are plenty of recipes with simple ingredient swaps for a nutritious meal that everyone will love, making it perfect for people who are enjoying their “food freedom” stage of their health journey

Throughout this book, I wanted to continue to bring back the joy of being in the kitchen provide food for every occasion, with soups, salads, pasta, vegetarian and non-vegetarian mains while also introducing, apps, sides, cocktails, and desserts — something my first book did not include.

Recipes in this book include:

  • Cajun Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
  • Green Curry Poached Halibut with Herbs
  • Texas Style Brisket Tacos
  • Herby Green Olive Pasta with Feta
  • Sheet Pan Honey-Sesame Cauliflower
  • Clayton’s Margarita
  • 7-Ingredient Almond Butter Cookies

The Defined Dish

Healthy and Wholesome Weeknight Recipes

My first New York Times Bestselling cookbook, The Defined Dish, is a cookbook that all levels of cooks can enjoy. Throughout the book, each dish is clearly marked to show if it is Whole30 compliant, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, and more. It is perfect for anyone who has completed a Whole30 and is looking to reintroduce healthful ingredients like tortillas, yogurt, beans, and legumes back into their diet.

Recipes like Chipotle Chicken Tostadas with Pineapple Salsa or my Black Pepper Chicken Stir-Fry are easy to prepare even after a busy day at work. At least 60 of the recipes are Whole30 compliant, or include delicious modifications to make when Whole30, such as using lettuce wraps instead of taco shells.
