When you want to change your lifestyle to paleo she is a good person to start with, especially with kids.

I'm really enjoying the recipes I have made so far from this. Mayo, Ranch, Cauliflower Hummus. I like that the recipes are geared towards familiar flavors. I would have liked to see a bit more weekly meal planning a shopping lists broken down by week.

This is my favorite cookbook! Every single recipe has a full page color picture and the contents have small thumbnail pictures with the page numbers and name of the dish. It really is laid out beautifully. The recipes I've made so far have all been wonderful. Best Ever Chicken Wings? SO good...we're having more tonight! Slow Chicken Curry? Yuuuummmmm!

This is a cookbook, but the author does give a basic overview of Paleo and how she came to the lifestyle. If you want more in depth information yo

A few years ago, my husband read "The Primal Blueprint" and decided to follow a Primal lifestyle. He has bought several cookbooks to help you do this, and I have sampled various dishes from all of them. I never really liked any of them until now. Primal and Paleo are very similar in nature, so he recently bought this cookbook. Finally we have recipes which I would actually choose to eat again (and have). The book is geared towards busy moms with kids, as the recipes do not take long to prepare, ...more

This is a great book. My book is spilled on, warped and stained-- well loved and used. My favorite things about this book are the lunch suggestions and the quick dinner ideas. There is a 1 week meal plan, and lots and lots of basics and tips. I've used her homemade chicken/beef broth quite a bit and we really like it. There is a chili recipe called Everyday Paleo Chili Colorado that is beyond delicious and flavorful. It uses real chilis (3 types) to flavor the chili rather than relying on tomato ...more

The recipes in the Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook aren’t as closely tied to how we already eat as the ones I found in Well Fed, it gave me some great ideas for cooking with kids, establishing healthy eating habits in children, and making healthy foods that kids will like. For example, the book includes a very quick recipe for Ranch dressing that leaves out the chemical/icky stuff bottled dressing comes with, and several flavorful ways to present vegetable side dishes without a lot of tricky “jus ...more

This seemed like a good book for the Paleo novice. I've been doing paleo for a quite a while now though and the recipes didn't really seem to fit my criteria. Some were simple and didn't really require a recipe (might be nice though if you haven't done paleo for long) like cauli rice and roasted vegetables. The other recipes had too many ingredients for me to attempt them. They just didn't hit my sweet spot of not too time consuming (or expensive because of multiple ingredients), but something s ...more

I got this book from the library when I first decided to go Paleo. Which I am not 100% strict I have incorporate 90% of the time. This book was so good and manageable that I ended up buying it after I had to return the library version. The meatloaf was a really good staple to make and the homemade ketchup. I will be using this book a lot!!

I really enjoy this cookbook. I have made quite a few of the recipes and they have all been good. I keep remaking my favorites so I haven't gotten through as many as I would like. The slow cooker curry is fantastic! She does use chicken thighs a lot but I just substitue breasts.

This book has some good quick information about the paleo lifestyle and gives good suggestions for fast meals and boxed lunches. I wish there were more recipes though and some additional information on the lifestyle.

I like the recipes in this book. They don't seem that complicated and sound delicious. We tried one tonight with great success, and I look forward to trying more. I also found her meal planning ideas at the beginning of the book helpful.

The first Paleo cookbook I've looked at. This confirms it. Of all the stupid diet trends that have come out recently, this is...well, one of them.

A few good recipes. To serve over rice with loads of bread . Nom.

Learning how to incorporate a whole lifestyle to fit the palate of an entire family is challenging to say the least. Sarah does a fantastic job of giving us all the good stuff in easy peasy lemon squeezy form :)

A recipe book to help guide someone who is beginning to eat a paleo diet. Initially, I was skeptical that this way of living would be simple; however, I have realized that eating a simpler diet is a better solution for me. I feel better with this diet change and I will continue to eat this way.

This cookbook explains the Paleo diet and how it is oriented to the family. There are some wonderful recipes in it including a great slow cooking section. The recipes are not difficult to make and are easy to incorporate into your lifestyle.

Not just excellent recipes (which I've tried over a dozen) but and outstanding reminder to shut off the "screens", cook together, play together, and make a conscious effort to live intentionally as a family.

This book is both an informative text and a cookbook. The photographs are stunning. However, I found that I could not eat some of the recipes in the book due to food allergies. But a lot of them are very good.

Eh, recipes are okay, basic enough for the everyday cook. I did like the "something extra" on the recipes. Glad I checked this out from the library.

I liked the first book MUCH better, I don't see myself making a lot of the things in this book for some reason. It wasn't as helpful as others.

Great information, easy to understand. Not overly scientific, reducing confusion over what to eat and not to eat. Great recipes at the end.

I would make less than a handful of recipes from this book. I didn't particularly like the set-up/design... or the quality of the photographs. also, ms. fragoso's smile is a little insane.

I have tried 6 recipes maybe and all but 1 are wonderful. This is a great cookbook. So far I've had no trouble staying whole30 compliant either. Definitely a book to buy.

This cookbook was okay. Not my favourite. I didn't really see it as everyday food as the cover says. But I guess every family is different.

Although I would love to wholly adopt this lifestyle, I just don't think it is feasible for me at this moment. I was able to pick out a few recipes to try and hopefully mix into my rotation.

I made a few of the recipies so far and they were really good (the hungarian stew was the best). I liked the photography and layout, overall it's really pretty good.
