1.0 out of 5 stars Not a Dairy-Free Cookbook!, March 18, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals: Delicious, Primal-approved meals you can make in under 30 minutes (Primal Blueprint Series) (Hardcover)
As I wrote on the other Primal Cookbook review, these recipes are NOT dairy-free as emblazoned on the cover. While the author sometimes lists ghee (a casein-free, whey-free, lactose-free solid with milk fats) as an alternative, many recipes call for butter, cream, etc. For instance, berry pancakes on page 7 calls for 3 tablespoons unsalted butter. Turkish eggs, page 15 calls for 1/4 cup full-fat yogurt. And so on.

For celiac sufferers seeking a true gluten-free, casein-free cookbook along the paleo diet lines, this isn't it...

Those sensitive to coconut should also be aware that this author relies heavily on coconut milk, flour and solids.

Is there another book you would recommend instead? I am very interested in paleo/primal but I DO NOT eat dairy so a cookbook laced with dairy ingredients would not work fo rme.

If you don't know the difference between Paleo and Primal you shouldn't be writing reviews. If you want a true Paleo cookbook then you shouldn't be buying a Primal cookbook.

All Paleo foods are Primal, but not all Primal foods are Paleo. Primal foods allow for dairy as long as you don't have a sensitivity. They are not one in the same.

And yet my review deals with the fact that blazoned in a blue banner across the top of the cover of this book are the words DAIRY-FREE.

It does definitely say "dairy-free" across the top of the cover, so you really can't blame the reviewer for not knowing the difference between primal and paleo. If some recipes are not dairy-free, the words should not appear on the cover. It's that simple.
