Editorial Reviews


“Diana is one of the most important people in the burgeoning sustainable food story and greater Paleo food movement.” —Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution

“Working mom. Busy practitioner. Grad student. Writer. Diana is all of these things and more - so if you're looking for someone who understands a go-go-go lifestyle, the buck stops here. Busy people need the right tools to stay healthy, and this book puts those tools all in one place. (And it's NEVER boring or bland - these recipes are yummy and fun!) Finally - someone who understands how to make life easy; food delicious; and healthy living as rewarding and simple as it's meant to be!” —Liz Wolfe, author of Modern Cave Girl

“One of the biggest challenges I see patients face when adopting a Paleo diet is incorporating it into their daily life. It can be daunting for a busy professional or a mother to cook breakfast and lunch on top of dinner every day, but Diana's book offers 100 delicious yet simple recipes to make this as easy as possible. It's an excellent resource for anyone following a Paleo diet that doesn't have time to be in the kitchen all day. ” —Chris Kresser M.S., L.Ac

"Diana's inventive breakfast and lunch ideas are a gift -- especially for those of us with busy schedules. Not only are her recipes bursting with flavor, but they can be quickly assembled as you barrel out the
door in the morning. Trust me: You won't be able to wait to dig into your lunchbox." —Michelle Tam, creator of popular blog, Nom Nom Paleo

"Diana is a mother of two, leads her own successful nutrition practice, works on a farm with her family, and is studying to become a registered dietitian. It is rare to find an individual with such nutrition-related experience who also possesses remarkable talent in the kitchen." —Mathieu Lalonde, Ph.D. Organic Chemistry, Harvard University

"If you have to eat on the run and want to keep it healthy and paleo then this book is mandatory! -Amy Kubal, MS, RD, LN

Disclosures: I am a paleo author/blogger and own pretty much every Paleo-oriented book ever written. I received a copy of this book to review. I'm also a busy mom, gym owner, and a terrible green thumb (though my other half is not). Now that we have that out of the way...

Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts On the Go is a fantastic book for those new to the Paleo way of life, or those looking for creative takes on what to eat for breakfast and lunch. The fact that Diana holds her NTP designation (and is furthering her nutrition education in a Masters program), is a mom of 2 active kids, has been living with Celiac disease for years, and manages an organic farm operation with her husband adds something to this book that you won't find in others out there. It's her personal experiences and practice of not only what she feeds her own family but what has worked with her nutrition clients that translates beautifully into simple yet delicious recipes that are incredibly accessible to just about everyone.

Given, there are a lot more Paleo books on the market today than say when Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution book came out in 2010 - and this is a great thing in that I think it now means there is something for just about everyone. Diana's book is focused solely on breakfasts and lunches and how to eat those on the run, with a busy family going 8 different directions and/or when time is not on your side.

Early in the book Diana explains her history, her definition of Paleo, tips for staying the Paleo path, and more.

And then of course there are the recipes, which are fantastic. The first recipe I tried was her Winter Beet Salad. I hate beets...usually (and fennel, another ingredient called for).

I bought this book along with 3 other paleo books and this is the only one that I just really don't like. If you don't mind spending a lot of time preparing for your breakfasts or lunches and using a lot of ingredients, then you will like this book a lot more than I do. Most of the breakfasts are pork and a few lamb and I don't eat or like either so that was another downside for me. I am new to paleo, so thus far I have accepted spending more time preparing some of my dinner meals but I'm not ready to spend 20-30 minutes making my breakfast and additional 20-30 for each lunch during the week. Majority of recipes in this book require a lot of different ingredients and spices and I guess I was looking for the healthy, quick ideas. I'm the person that wants and needs my breakfast to be ready in 10minutes or less during the week. I did take the time to make one of the breakfasts on the weekend and I didn't like it at all, which worsened my feelings on this book. I gave it a 3/5 because it does have a lot of ideas, if you don't mind spending the time then I think you'd really like this book and there are a few quick breakfast ideas (its just that those ideas do not appeal to me personally).

I am a busy mother of two young children, including an exclusively breastfed infant. I have done several Whole30s and am looking to return to eating paleo for a number of reasons. I try to do as much food prep and cooking as possible on the weekend, particularly as I am about to return to work and have very little time for meal preparation on weeknights. I am not new to paleo eating, but do need quick-to-prepare meals that will appeal to my starch-and-carb loving husband and 3 year old without breaking the budget, so I was optimistic about Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go.

I made and enjoyed several of the wrap recipes, including the Chicken and Peach Firecracker Wrap, Roast Beef and Beets Wrap, and Avocado, Orange, and Herb Chicken Wrap. None of them took TOO long to prepare (although I admit I used a precooked chicken and bought precooked beets among other shortcuts) and all could easily have been reworked as salads rather than wraps. I'm looking forward to trying some of the "cook and run" wraps and salads, too.

Most of the soups/chilis appear to take a lot of effort and time to prepare. The author specifically says that she doesn't like slow cookers, and a quick survey of the recipes in this section indicate that many can't really be modified for the crock pot. While this portion of the cookbook doesn't meet my needs, the recipes do sound and look appealing.

The Sweet Potato Apple Cinnamon pancakes were quite nice, although took an excessive amount of time to prepare. I made a double batch and between grating the apples and mashing the cooked sweet potato, then cooking the pancakes in a 10" skillet on the stove, it took well over an hour for one recipe.

Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go offers a good combination of concise information and practical recipes for situations where you don't have a lot of time. The book begins with a very brief overview of the rationale behind Paleo dieting, as well as some basic rules. It also tells the author's personal story and experiences, although one thing to note is that the author choose this diet because of health considerations, not because she wanted to lose weight. The introductory material is pretty good, and is probably enough to serve as a basic introduction if you have haven't already read other Paleo diet books.

There are about 100 recipes divided into wraps (either prepared on the go, or in advance), salads, soups and stews, breakfasts, sides and dressings. Each recipe includes basic nutritional information (protein, calories, etc). The book is printed in full color and has some very nice photos of the prepared dishes. The instructions for the recipes are clear and easy to follow, and the dishes that I have tried so far are delicious.

Overall, this is an excellent addition to any Paleo dieter's bookshelf. For even faster meals, I'd also suggest The Protein Express Diet: Rapid Weight Loss with a Simplified Low Carb, High Protein Diet which fits perfectly with a Paleo strategy.
