And when I opened this book, I did something I don’t normally do. I went straight into the kitchen to cook. That is quite something.

I made and cleaned up three recipes (I made a dozen scotch eggs!) in a couple of hours, quite possibly a personal record. If you’re like me, a straight-forward, simple minded cook, you will like this book.

It is small and light. It is not a dumb bell masquerading as a cookbook, nor will your bookstand topple over mid-recipe when your hands are full of sticky goo. You

This was a fantastic no-nonsense beginner's guide to the paleo lifestyle. I enjoyed the way they explained the science behind paleo as well as how it affects our bodies in layman's terms. This included lots of great recipes to get you started and I think I'm going to be buying my own copy to keep around the house as I borrowed this one from the library.

Eh. This ended up not being my thing at all. I was hoping to find some inspiration to pass along to my mom (she's supposed to be on a high-protein, low-carb diet), but this eating plan mostly relies on foods she's allergic to or doesn't like.

My daughter is allergic to wheat and my husband wanted to eat paleo so we got this book. It's wonderful! Simple to read...and then so much fun to cook! I usually hate cooking but my little ones and I have been busy enjoying these recipes :)

Simple recipes. I loved how you can make "spaghetti" made from veggies. Will try that next!
