While it contains a lot of useful tips and ideas to eat Paleo, only a handful of recipes will be going into my arsenal.

Okay, some of these recipes seem super-obvious to me, like the soups and the wraps. The breakfast section looked the most interesting, and there's a recipe for rosemary crackers I will try soon. The color photos on glossy paper were lovely and the book opens easily to middle pages, nice and flat, thanks to a sewn binding. Most of the flour replacements use coconut flour and tapioca starch, which I like since I'm not a fan of rice flour.

This book has some pretty delicious-looking recipes. The lunch options seem both easy and unique.

The author does a good job of making this way of eating seem approachable-- she explains her work history and her current family situation, so it does seem like she's a "real person" and not some independently wealthy individual who can spend 6 hours a day on cooking. She contradicts herself, however, in trying to make the book the one-stop-shop for too many different kinds of Paleo eater

This book has suddenly inspired me out of my cooking rut, which is no small feat. Most cookbooks really turn me off by seeming too fussy, too 'hip,' or too wordy without enough pictures. (I need to SEE the end result of what I am trying to make - I really do.) By no means am I a part of this paleo lifestyle the kids are talking about these days, but I do aim to avoid sugar and starches when I cook at home. Vegan, vegetarian, and "classic" cookbooks have historically been my main sources of food ...more

This book has some clear strong points, and a few areas that left me disappointed. It contains some delicious sounding recipes (I can’t wait to try to unique sausage recipes in particular), covers the basics (such as mayonnaise and salad dressing), and clearly addresses the portability, re-heat-ability, etc. of each recipe (appropriate, considering that they’re all intended to be feasible for work and school days).

It’s worth noting that that author is okay with using the microwave, something I

So, my husband has decided that he wants to go Paleo. He picked this book out, knowing that we didn't have many lunch and breakfast options for him. But guess who gets to create these recipes for him? Yup, your's truly. So I read the book.

Overall, I dunno if I would describe a lot of the recipes as quick. A lot of the lunch items call for your own homemade Paleo mayo or salad dressing, on top of cooking a whole chicken, something as a Paleo starter, we're not used to doing. For me, i

there was nothing that i wanted to make and giving it two stars i being nice. Ok so I got this again because I have an auto immune disease and I have read that Paleo can help. At the front of the book the author talks about her paleo experience and different aspects of the diet. That is what the extra 2 stars is for. I did find one or two things that I would attempt to make. There were a few things that maybe I would not make but I would eat if it was made for me. I did like that it made me more ...more

From Heidi K.:

I have used this cookbook the longest and can vouch for the deliciousness of many recipes herein! I love the egg muffin recipe for making ahead for quick breakfasts. My favorite salad recipe in this book is the Wild Tuna, Orange, and Parsley Salad. Runner up favorite recipe is the simple and amazing Chicken, Celeriac, and Mustard Salad Wrap. I had never previously eaten celeriac (celery root), and now I consider it my favorite slaw veggie! The coconut crepe recipe in th

This is a great cookbook! Like any Paleo diet cookbook, the introduction can be a little preachy with the "why you should be eating Paleo", and while all natural, pasture raised eggs & meat are more humane than factory farmed, I can't help but assume it's simply not affordable for everyone all the time. However, the recipes in this cookbook are great, and the photos look amazing. I bought it on sale at Powell's, and it was well worth what I paid.

The recipes got a little to fancy for me. I mean, I'm not afraid of herbs and exotic vegetables, but seriously...there's nothing in this book that I can make with the items I keep in my kitchen. I just want a wrap...That being said, it did give me some ideas of where to go with my own creations. And the pictures are pretty sweet.

I wasn't abundantly impressed by the recipes in this book. I was looking for portable, but few were actually simple grab and go meal ideas. If you're into the paleo thing, this might be more your speed. It's just not mine.
Another paleo cookbook with only a few new recipes to try. It seems like there are a lot of repeat dishes in paleo cooking. That being said, I have some new breakfasts to try out, so I'm happy for that.

Mostly uninspired, plain jane recipes. Many of the wraps were especially boring and obvious with nothing new or interesting to add to the many "classics" it included, (e.g. turkey club, honey mustard chicken). I flipped through it and didn't see anything I was interested in making.

I did not think anything Paleo would interest me. Too much tomato sauce in everything. However, this book was full of interesting and tasty breakfast and lunch ideas that were gluten free and delicious.
Jan 05, 2014 rated it liked it
Some of the recipes are quite good. However, most of the recipes take some decent prep and/or cook time. There is also use of many ingredients I did not have on hand as they are not called for in most of the rest of my paleo collection. The chicken fennel salad is to die for, FYI!

Waiting until I try some of the recipes to give this a star rating, but since all of the recipes look absolutely stellar, I'm sure my rating will be no less than 5 stars.

The recipes are super simple and gave me some fresh ideas for flavor combinations I hadn't thought of. It's good to have more easily portable options for paleo lunches.

Would be more useful for someone who can eat raw vegetables but still had good ideas and things to spark creativity about what to bring for lunches.

I don't follow a paleo diet, but checked this out of the library for the gluten-free recipes. The wrap recipes and the sauce recipes sound wonderful and I plan to buy a copy to keep at home.

This is in my top 5 favorite Paleo cookbooks that I have read to date. The text is engaging and the recipes are delectable. Eating a paleo diet has reversed my autoimmune disease.
A great book, especially for packing lunches for my husband!!! Easy recipes, great instruction, and overall fun!
