About the Author

Megan and Brandon Keatley are certified Crossfit coaches and teach numerous classes each week in Columbia, South Carolina. They also provide ongoing nutrition counseling and workshops aligned with Primal/paleo diet principles to personal clients and gym members. In 2012, competing together in the team competition, they took 7th in the CrossFit Games Southeast Regional. Brandon is a lifelong athlete who has long been fascinated by diet and nutrition. In his extensive research of the role food plays in health, fitness, and peak performance, he discovered the principles of the Primal/paleo eating strategy in 2006 - and hasn't looked back since! Megan has cooked at home since age seven, and worked in restaurants since the age of 15. She's waited tables, washed dishes and prepared meals - sometimes all in the same day! She has completed training with the Culinary Institute of America chefs and worked as an executive pastry chef at one of Columbia's best known eateries. Since meeting while earning their degrees at the University of South Carolina, the Keatleys' founded their food blog, Health-Bent.com, on the premise that eating within seemingly strict guidelines can be much easier and tastier than imagined. Their recipes are inventive, but always feel approachable, without the unnecessary fuss of expensive ingredients and hours of prep. Health-Bent.com has been lauded as a premier resource for the most delicious Primal/paleo recipes and down to earth lifestyle advice.

Seriously. I have quite a few paleo/primal cookbooks. I like most of them and find recipes in all that are good...aaannnd, some not-so-good. Primal Cravings is the first cookbook that I've LOVED every recipe I've tried. And let's see, that's 13 recipes. So far. I've followed the Health Bent blog for about a year and have tried many of Megan and Brandon's recipes. Not only were they good for Primal recipes, they were GOOD, period. I was hoping their cookbook would be the same and boy was I not disappointed! And for those of you thinking they are the same recipes as on their blog...definitely not. There are a few repeats but by far the majority of the recipes are brand new.

Not only is Primal Cravings a beautiful book to look at, with gorgeous photos of food and just a well-made and thought out design of a book, the information contained in it is invaluable. Sources to get specific foods, why they don't include nut flours (thank you!) and why to eat this way. It's simple and concise and easy to understand.

But the recipes. Oh the recipes! They are the reason to get this book. As I sit here typing this I am munching on Sloppy Joe Meatballs (the second time I've made them) and wow, they are delicious. Meaty and just a little bit sweet, with a great tomato tang. This past weekend I made the Cuban burgers (complete with plantain 'buns') and Best Ever Pulled Pork (and ya know what? It is the best ever!). I've made the Gyro Taco Salad with Tzatziki guacamole, the Thai Chicken Meatballs, the Curry Turkey Burgers with Mango Slow. And more. Salads and sides? They're in there too...and so, so good. Snacks and desserts too. It's just a different spin on Primal Cooking and one that I will be definitely add to my cooking rotation.

First off, this cookbook is so pretty. The pictures, the illustrations and even the texture of the paper is beautiful. I appreciate the attention to detail. It's also very well organized by categories. The table of contents in each section makes it easy and quick to find what you're looking for. This seems like common sense, but I have a few paleo cookbooks that are horribly organized and such a pain to navigate so I was really pleased with Primal Cravings in this aspect.
Second, the recipes are delicious. I've made at least a dozen recipes so far and everything has been delicious. There is no almond flour used for any of the baking which is really nice as I try to stay away from so much nut flour in my cooking. Their new baking method, which I haven't seen anywhere else creates amazing pastries, biscuits, empanadas, bread & pizza crust that you will not believe is paleo once you taste it! I had stopped make paleo pizza completely because all the methods create a soggy crust with a heavy nut flavor. Not anymore. This one bakes up crispy and with no mealy textures or flavors from nut flours.
In addition to all the tasty baked goods, there are great breakfast recipes for on the go and delicious, easy to make entrees for dinner. They also have some great charts for easy lunch ideas. This book is really well rounded and makes a great addition to a paleo kitchen. You will not regret buying it!

I have been paleo for almost two years now and when I decided to make the switch, I bought all the cookbooks that were on the market at the time. They've given me so many awesome meals and ideas over the years that I kind of got hooked on them. Each time a new book comes out, I buy it. I've got a pretty massive stack now!

When I originally saw this book, I almost didn't buy it. The word 'cravings' threw me. I have spent the last two years getting rid of my cravings...not feeding them...why would I want a book that would change that? Plus, what could this book possibly have that my huge stack on my counter doesn't? Then I saw the recipe for the gyro inspired salad on Mark's Daily Apple and thought that I'd give it a shot.

What a wonderful surprise!! Not only is the book hardcover and absolutely gorgeous (somehow, I was expecting it to be paperback), but on my first flip-through, I saw at least 10 non-desert recipes that I wanted to try. That means 10 recipes totally different than I've been making for the last 2 years! I've now made 12 - 15 things from the book and all of them have been delicious. And the baked goods sans almond flour? Again, I was shocked. I have steered clear of most recipes containing coconut flour because with a lot of coconut flour, they don't agree with me (and they taste weird) but the ones in this book are fabulous. I started with the gingerbread muffins and I had to put half in the freezer so that my husband and I wouldn't gobble them all up in one sitting! (they freeze beautifully, by the way) I've been searching for a good waffle recipe since I went paleo and the strawberry ones in this book are heads and tails above anything else we've tried. The salads are wonderful too!

This is a great cookbook for those leading a Primal/Paleo lifestyle and/or have problems with gluten and other typical desert or baking ingredients. Everything we have tried so far has been either great or very good. We have also had success altering recipes slightly to accommodate our tastes (less or different sweeteners, add-ins, etc.). (Oh, and as you read this, keep in mind that I am focussing on the desert recipes more than the savory ones.)

Don't get me wrong - these are still "healthy" alternatives, and you won't find yourself mistaking them for something from your favorite patisserie. But often, that is a good thing: while many of the recipes in this book are intended to mimic traditional sweets, in some cases what you're getting is something completely new. Sure, it might look like a cookie or blondie, but it tastes quite different, and is excellent in its own right - as a new creation.

The carrot-cake sandwich cookies are truly incredible (a hint: use the honey in the cookie and the maple syrup in the filling, and try cutting the "shortening" in half), as are the dirty blondies (try adding a few chunks of 85% chocolate and/or some chopped macadamias).

As for the savory items, many of them are quite good. The pulled pork recipe is actually one of the best we've had. And many of them (the empanadas, for example) are quite excellent without the "bread" component.

Weaknesses? A few. In general, we've found most of the desert recipes a tad sweet for our strict primal diet. However, that is an issue that effects every primal cookbook we've tried. The beauty of these gluten-free recipes is that you can typically omit quite a bit of the sweetener from a recipe without adversely affecting the consistency of the finished product.
