The paleo cookbook Bubba Yum Yum: The Paleo Way was due for release last week, but was postponed by publisher Pan MacMillan in NZ and Australia amid health concerns over a recipe for babies.
But co-author Pete Evans, who penned the book with blogger and actress Charlotte Carr, appears unperturbed by the news, taking to Facebook to announce: "Our nurturing new book 'Bubba Yum Yum' will also being [sic] released in the next week or two, so we'll keep you updated [sic]."
Enthused about the project, which he wrote with Wes Carr's wife Charlotte and naturopath Helen Padarin, he ended the post with: "We surly [sic] all are part of something very, very special... good things are coming! Good things are here!"

Charlotte followed Pete's lead, posting to Bubbayumyum's account: "Everything is exactly how it's meant to be. Wonderful news coming soon about our beautiful book."
Pete's post comes after last week's announcement the release of the Paleo cookbook for children had been delayed due to grave concerns about the nutritional value of recipes in the book.
The Public Health Association of Australia said that one of the recipes- a do-it-yourself baby formula made from liver and bone broth- had the potential to stunt the growth of babies and impair development due to the high levels of Vitamin A.
"In my view, there's a very real possibility that a baby may die if this book goes ahead," said Professor Heather Yeatman, president of the PHAA.
Fresh off filming the sixth season of My Kitchen Rules, Pete is currently busy touring his Paleo Way cooking class through the country.
The tour is an offshoot his Pete's TV show of the same name, which the Daily Telegraph reported has been green-lit for a second season.
