5.0 out of 5 stars A Must For Anybody That Follows The Paleo Diet!, September 27, 2012
This review is from: Paleo Slow Cooking: Gluten Free Recipes Made Simple (Paperback)
One of the biggest complaints of eating Paleo is that it's expensive and it takes forever to prep/cook food. As someone that doesn't really enjoy cooking, or cleaning up afterwards, it's nice to have a resource that provides recipes that are both easy and delicious. In addition, Robb Wolf, author of Paleo Solution, offered some interesting insight as to why slow cooking is healthier than alternative cooking methods. As it turns out slow cooking is the healthiest way to cook food. In a nutshell (at least how I understood it) slow cooking helps preserve the nutrient content of vegetables and meat, and because everything is mixed together you actually you end up ingesting a lot of the nutrients that are typically lost with conventional cooking methods.

From the book: Robb Wolf - "Unlike baking or fry- ing, which necessitate relatively high temperatures (making those nasty polycyclic thingies), slow cooking occurs at reasonably low temperatures so that you don't see the wacky kitchen chemistry that is common with other approaches."

The recipes are broken up into 5-categories:Breakfast, Soups and Stews, Main Dishes, Side Dishes, and Desserts.

The breakfast recipes consist of frittata dishes, which are easy, fast (2-hours), and taste great (much better than when I attempt them in the oven). The soups and stews include both traditional and unique dishes (I particularly like the Jalapeno Sweet Potato Chowder and Coconut Cream of Broccoli Soup), and the main courses include heartier meals like Boneless Pork Ribs, Beef Brisket, and Yellow Curry Chicken. The side dishes are simple, but great because it gives you ideas of what to with the slow cooker meals that are quick and easy, which is the whole point of the book. Gower even tells you what sides go with certain main dishes. The desserts is just a bonus. I didn't even know you could make a desert in the crock-pot, especially ones that are paleo.

Overall, the book is as exactly what I wanted: slow cooker meals that I can prep in the morning and eat when I get home after work. I struggled to find good options online, so this book is a great resource for anybody that follows the Paleo diet!
