PORTFOLIO UPDATE: Paleo Reset with Lizzy Marsh, Book Give-Away and Recipe Sneak Peeks!


Hooray! It’s nearly here and I am so excited to share it all with you.

As you know, earlier this year I was commissioned to shoot Lizzy Marsh’s first Paleo book from front to back, 55 recipes in 5 weeks. The book will be available for limited released here in Australia, the UK, Canada and the US from 1st September.

This was a very special project for me for a number of reasons. Besides the fact it was my first front to back book shoot, I got to work with ingredients and recipes that I was not familiar with, and learn a lot about the Paleo movement. By default Matt and I were on the Paleo diet train for the 5 weeks, as we ate our way through the book. We loved the recipes so much that quite a few of them have ended up into our regular meal rotation. I am so blessed that Lizzy gave me the opportunity to have complete creative control in capturing a new essence and style to this movement.

Also on board is celebrity chef and Paleo legend, Pete Evans, who was excited by what Lizzy is trying to create, he wrote the forward for the book.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Paleo, the Paleo lifestyle refers to the diet consumed by our ancestors starting some 2.5 million years ago and ending with the start of the agricultural revolution about 10,000 years ago. However, it isn’t about re-enacting human life as a caveman, it’s about exploring real food and a holistic approach to life without the processed and refined foods of the modern world that can be linked to marked increases in disease, as well as supporting your local communities and knowing the individuals who provide and supply your food’.

The book will be released 1st September 2014 here in Australia, a day before in the UK and a day after in the US and Canada. It is a limited release so don’t miss out and get your copy straight from Lizzy herself at Primal Junction or through Amazon or Fishpond. It is available for pre-sale now.

Counting down the coming weeks until Paleo’s release date, I will be sharing three recipes from the book; Skin Food Smoothie, Shepherd’s Pie Pots and Watermelon & Basil Granite.

To get you inspired about just how mouth watering food from Paleo can be, here is a little portfolio update from the work I did for the book to get you in the mood!
