Mike here and you’re reading my uncensored review of what I really thought about The Paleo Recipe Book. You most likely are here because you are trying to figure out what foods are on the paleo diet.
Note that this a review though, if you’re looking for The Paleo Recipe Book’s website then click here.
Why am I writing this? Well, when I was thinking about buying The Paleo Recipe Book, a paleo cookbook, there weren’t many real reviews around and I didn’t even know if the foods included in the book were approved for the diet, so I thought I’d write up a quick review to help any of you who are in the same position I was. But be warned, I’ll be going into both the good and the bad points, so if that’s something you might not want to hear, then you may as well leave now.
There’s not really a lot of information out there about what foods fall under the paleo umbrella or the so-called “paleolithic caveman diet”, so I was skeptical right off the bat to try this paleo cookbook; in addition, there are other paleo cookbooks out there to choose from. But I figured for $27 I might as well give this one a try. First off, the book is an instant download which is absolutely wonderful. I didn’t have to wait to receive the book in the mail; I simply saved it to my computer and could reference it whenever I wanted. I even saved a copy onto my iPad so I can reference the book in the kitchen.
I never really enjoyed cooking much, but I also know that certain diet programs require you to spend hundreds of dollars a month on food, so I figured I’d better get to liking cooking or pay the price! The Paleo Recipe Book has a lot of REALLY simple recipes—even for a guy like me, I was able to understand and easily make the dishes.
Everything is laid out nicely and the book is basically idiot proof. It really is a great paleo diet cookbook.
Another thing that is great is that there are 370 unique recipes involving different ingredients and meats, so you’ll never get tired of eating the stuff in the book. I’ve had the book for a few months now and I haven’t even tried everything yet since there are so many recipes. Oh, and did I mention that the food is actually pretty darn tasty? I didn’t know that foods for the paleo diet could taste so good.
Now for the negatives: If you’re looking for an actual, physical book to hold in your hand, move on. This book is only available as an eBook. Also, everybody tends to react differently to different diets, so there’s really no guarantee that the book will work for you, although based on my experience and other reviews I’ve read you’ll end up losing weight and feeling healthier.
I could list some of the foods/recipes that are in this paleo cookbook here, but I’d rather not be sued by the creators of The Paleo Recipe Book. Instead, I’m just going to link you to their site—it worked well for me and, hey, if you don’t like it you can always return it for a full refund.
