This book is a handbook for anyone thinking about transitioning their family to a more real food, paleo approach -- and it's ideal for parents dealing with kids' allergy issues.

It's the illustrated opening story, however - told by Cole - which truly moved me the most. It ends with the most innocent and sweet statement, "Now we enjoy going out and doing fun stuff instead of feeling sad inside our house." This is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

About the Blog
With 3 children now unable to eat "normal" foods, Matt & Stacy began creating recipes for children with food allergies in mind. Both Eat Like a Dinosaur and Real Life Paleo highlight the top allergens and offer ideas on how to further eliminate tree nuts and eggs from their grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, legume-free recipes. Most recipes are appropriate for those with nearly any food allergies, including those following the Paleo, Primal, SCD, GAPS, and gluten-free lifestyles.

There are over 100 reviews here that will tell you the wonderful parts with this book so I don't feel the need to repeat them all. Since this is a review, I feel the need to be honest with some criticism.
There were two parts of this book that I did not like. First, they recommend transitioning your kids quickly. I don't necessarily agree with this approach for kids age 4+ who are going through a picky stage already. Our child became malnourished from his refusal to eat a few months ago and as much as everyone tells you that they will eat what you feed them, that is not always the case. Although my son is an extreme exception, I know there are other kids out there like him. My other two children are transitioning nicely. I feel it is better to empower the child to make the right choice. Read Cole's story in the book and talk about how processed food, grains and legumes make your child ill.Read more ›
Then I stared reading/researching healthy eating for families. Kids I especially wanted to read about their nutrition and it was at this time I found Paleo and Eat Like A Dinosaur. We quickly cleaned out our pantry, fridge, and freezer of ALL processed foods. I explained to my four year old what we were doing and we went to the market and ordered our copy of ELaD.
Today we are 3-4 months into Paleo and we have never felt better. We reference this book daily and my four year old is excited to pick-out recipes to help create. The children's story in this book was helpful in explaining our new lifestyle and we've even read it to some of our friends children.
Without a doubt you will love this book and live better after practicing these techniques to healthy living with your family.
Eat Like a Dinosaur is the newest addition to the growing collection of paleo cookbooks and how-to guides, and it was clearly made with love. The Paleo Parents (be sure to visit their impressive and helpful blog) have transformed themselves. Yes, they lost a lot of weight (200 pounds) following the paleo diet, but they've also created a new lifestyle for themselves that goes far beyond weight loss to really living. As they say in the (not at all) "Boring Chapter for Parents," they wrote their book for "ordinary families who want to start cooking and eating together with their children in a healthful way."
This book is a handbook for anyone thinking about transitioning their family to a more real food, paleo approach -- and it's ideal for parents dealing with kids' allergy issues. For your consideration...
5 Cool Things About Eat Like A Dinosaur
1. It's more than a collection of recipes.
If you're looking for paleo-compliant recipes and replacements for non-paleo favorites, Eat Like a Dinosaur has got you covered. With more than 100 recipes, there are plenty of ideas to make sure no one complains that eating healthy is boring. But Eat Like a Dinosaur goes beyond that to include helpful tips on two really big challenges: how to transition the family and how to pack kid-pleasing paleo lunches.Read more ›
I really wanted to like the book. But our family it didn't click. The story was great but the recipes themselves just didn't inspire my kids nor me.
