Diana Rodgers, a nutritional therapist and nutritional consultant to several Crossfit Gyms, is a Paleo community activist endorsed by Robb Wolf, Chris Kresser and other Paleo Diet leaders. In her practice, she identifies lunch and breakfast as the hardest meals to eat without busting your Paleo, gluten-free diet, especially when most recipes call for gluten, rice processed oils, sliced bread or sandwich buns. Diana solves the problem with 100 easy and delicious packable meals. From lettuce wrap sandwiches to egg muffins to creative uses for toothpicks and packaging, she takes the confusion out of how to make hand-friendly and fast meals without bread. Recipes include, her Chicken Salad with Fennel and Cranberries perfected cradled by a leaf of romaine lettuce, the Paleo Italian "Sub" with pesto and nestled in Boston lettuce, the to-die for Cherry Tarragon Breakfast Sausages and even a Paleo-friendly Bubble and Squeak. These mouth-watering creations are perfect portable meals that are as healthy and easy to make as they are gourmet. Her passion for Paleo nutrition stems from her lifelong battle with Celiac Disease plus her strong interest in sustainability issues.

"One of the biggest challenges I see patients face when adopting a Paleo diet is incorporating it into their daily life. It can be daunting for a busy professional or a mother to cook breakfast and lunch on top of dinner every day, but Diana's book offers 100 delicious yet simple recipes to make this as easy as possible. It's an excellent resource for anyone following a Paleo diet that doesn't have time to be in the kitchen all day. " --Chris Kresser M.S., L.Ac
"Diana's inventive breakfast and lunch ideas are a gift -- especially for those of us with busy schedules. Not only are her recipes bursting with flavor, but they can be quickly assembled as you barrel out the
door in the morning. Trust me: You won't be able to wait to dig into your lunchbox." --Michelle Tam, creator of popular blog, Nom Nom Paleo
