Although I was doubtful about the ability to combine the seemingly meat-centric paleo diet with veganism, these delicious recipes made me a believer. Even if you are not considering a paleo diet, this cookbook is a must have for its creative, nutritionally loaded recipes. --Ashley Robinson, All About Vegan Food

From the Author

Like my other books, "Paleo Vegan" tries to dispel myths about eating vegan. 
I've done tons of research using my investigative reporting, not-bought-by-anybody background to redefine what our paleo ancestors really did for food. Truth is, elk and buffalo just weren't available 3 times a day, and most of our ancient relatives were more gathering than hunting...maybe exclusively so. 
All the recipes are 100% vegan, not high protein (unless you want to eat that way) and delicious. I just placed in my 66th 5K race for my age group, so you get plenty of protein on a balanced, vegan diet. ;)
I wrote the book after ordering vegan with friends in a restaurant, and the waitress said, "I used to be vegan but I just lost 20 pounds going paleo." When I hear that, and as a personal trainer and running coach, I've heard this more than once, I always wonder, at what expense? I lost 25 pounds going vegan, after decades of trying many high protein diets. While they worked in the short term, I would regain the weight and then some, and my cholesterol shot up, as it does for many who eat a lot of meat. 
I wrote the book to give readers who want to give paleo a try, and do it while still remaining vegan. Or perhaps you'll understand as increasing numbers are these days, that eating vegan is so much better for your overall health, and especially the health of the planet.

I love this book for many reasons.

As a vegan chef myself (who is constantly testing my own recipes), I rarely feel driven to try other people's recipes. However, when I received a copy of this book recently, I was blown away by the pure genius of Alan's recipes. Wow! They are gorgeous. They are simple, yet flavorful and healthy. Color me impressed!

As for the rest of the book (the non-edible portion), it's equally brilliant. It's about time someone busted the myth of paleo VS. vegan and found a common ground. Ellen's enjoyable writing style draws you in and makes you want to keep reading. She's really packed a lot of research and thorough information in here, yet it's not overwhelming. It hits just the right note.

I would highly recommend picking up a copy of this well written, informative, and beautiful book. I think there's a little something in it for everyone!

I have a wheat allergy, so I have found that following a paleo/primal/PHD leaves me feeling much better and with a lot more energy. However, the devil is in the details. There have been so many great diets that people have taken to the extreme and it has, effectively, ruined their credibility. For example, both Paleo and low carb (such as Atkins) started with the right approach. Then someone came along and said that you could eat all the bacon that you want and the health aspects fall apart.
No matter what diet program you choose, it will only be healthy if you eat more fresh produce and healthy fats and reduce the amount of processed foods. There is just no way around it. So Paleo is an extremely healthy way to eat if you don't eat 10 lbs of meat and 1/2 lb of vegetables a day. That is why I love this book.
I just can not be totally vegan...I have tried and my body just does not do well on it. But I love vegetables and it is hard to find vegetable recipes that use healthy fats and no grains. This is the answer to my prayers. If I want to eat vegan, I can. If I want to add a piece of fish or an egg, that is the easy part. Either way, it is healthy and delicious.
The recipes are amazing and creative. I have so many that I want to try. Mixed berries with berry puree and lemon verbena; fruit salad with blueberry almond cream sauce; curried pumpkin soup, baby kale salad with balsamic-braised mushrooms; mustard greens with ginger blackberry vinaigrette; arugula with grapefruit reduction and hazelnuts; cauliflower tabouli; artichokes stuffed with quinoa, olives and capers; butternut squash with hazelnuts; stuffed acorn squash; ginger chocolate tart in a raw crust. YUM YUM YUM!!!
This book also has a short but thorough description of Paleo in the front that is also very good if you are new to the Paleo movement. All in all, a really great idea with solid execution. Thank you!!!!!

Format: Paperback
The paleo and vegan diets are often seen as opposites, so it’s noteworthy when a book like this makes an effort at melding the two philosophies. The point is made early on that cavemen couldn’t fell a mastadon every day, and likely a good portion of their diet was vegan-friendly foraging. From there, we explore what it would mean to be a paleo vegan, and how the paleo philosophy of food and exercise can be applied to a vegan audience.

The book is written in a very conversational style, and the first 23 pages, which discuss how to implement the diet, for example, discussing the eternal questions of how to get enough protein and iron, breeze on by. I would have liked references and an index, but most readers won’t miss it. This section would be great for someone interested in being vegan or paleo, and it does include discussion of health concerns with either. I wish she had some sample menus showing how to get adequate amounts of the nutrients she is concerned about people getting enough of. Her section on foraging for food is truly excellent, and taught me a lot. A rather amusing typo has the author participating in races “5000 kilometers and up” instead of “5000 METERS and up”.

My only real complaint is i wish this section was longer, and went more into depth about the issues raised. If you want a detailed comparison of paleo and vegan, and how to marry this two, this is really only a short introduction.

After this comes 104 pages of recipes, and they’re really great! A lot of cookbooks have recipes that call for 10,20, or more ingredients, and have laborious preparation instructions.

Ellen Jaffe Jones, a highly respected author, has done it yet again.

A fresh new look at what humans in the paleo period ate to remain healthy ... contrasted to the other proven unhealthy Paleo/Atkins remix.

The text is well researched & the "ancient" recipes are delicious & are uplifting to body, mind & spirit.

Thanks Ellen Jaffe Jones for another prized addition to our vegan/cookbook collection.

PS The one star rating should be considered INVALID due to the reviewer obviously NOT buying or reading your book ... it is disgusting & improper for people to review amazon items with only "troll-like" negative fact-less beliefs ... and ... NOT even giving the author at least a read or taste test drive.
