About the Author
Bill Staley, a landscape architect and life long artist, grew up with a passion for great food and creating things with his hands. Drawing upon a decade of experience in graphic design, photography, and various other artistic pursuits, Bill flexes his creativity in the kitchen behind the camera lens. Following their popular debut title, Make it Paleo, Bill and Hayley have blazed a unique trail for themselves in the cooking world. What started as a casual blogging hobby quickly grew into a bustling website, followed by a cookbook, and now has grown to an interactive website with a meal planner, customized user-created shopping lists, and even a companion app for smart phones.
Hayley Mason, a high definition makeup artist trained in Hollywood, never thought she would be applying her styling talents to grass fed beef and grain free desserts rather than the eyes and cheek bones of movie stars. Hayley was quick to become one of the most acclaimed culinary forces driving the grain free cooking movement. Her practical, efficient and methodical cooking style shows that delicious grain free eating can be easily attained by anyone and leave you feeling as if nothing is missing from your plate. Her holistic approach to health, wellness and nutrition is a common thread that weaves its way through every recipe she creates.

This book is a great addition to the series. Very easy to follow, amazing pictures that make your mouth water and simple easy to follow recipes.
The book is broken into three parts.
Part I - What is Paleo, is a great overview about Paleo. It answers all the main questions about what you can and shouldn't eat. It pretty much covers everything any beginner or long time Paleo eater needs to know.
Part II - Is the 30 day meal plan. It is very easy to follow, they give you a shopping list and a meal plan for each week of your thirty days. It is well planned out and super easy to follow. They don't use hard to find items or crazy grocery stores. Most markets will carry these items from my experience.
Part III - This is where it gets great. Each meal is described with easy to follow recipes accompanied by the most amazing food photography I have ever seen. What is so great is that they are easy to follow, I can make the dinners and not worry about having all the stuff or pans I may need.
This book has encouraged me to do another 30 day challenge. I consider myself approx 80/20 Paleo eating. But Bill and Hayley have encouraged me to get back to 100% Paleo.
I am an avid Crossfitter, I have encouraged my wife to eat clean and we also have our 16 month old child eating clean. No artificial puffs or sugars.
I highly suggest this this book to anyone interested in learning more about Paleo and giving it a try. You will not be disappointed and you will feel the difference in your body.
Bill and Hayley answer all of your FAQs about how to get started on eating Paleo, from shopping, to recipes, to how to make the best use of your leftovers in their 30 day meal plans. Everyday we get asked , "How do I get started? Is this Paleo? What do I do for breakfast?" With their new book, Hayley and Bill have answered those questions and more. You'd be hard pressed to find a more succinct and useful guide to getting yourself started towards a lifetime of good health through damn good eating.
1. Shopping list week 1 does not reconcile with week 1 meals
-list indicates 4 lbs ground pork, but recipes call for 4.5 lbs.
-list indicates one yellow squash but recipes call for 2
2. Recipes can be cryptic. Skillet chicken leg quarters step 1 asks you to preheat the oven, but then you don't use the oven!
3. Words spelled correctly but completely out of context in sentence. Not a big deal, but this book was not carefully finished off and this matters when you are using the shopping list and turning the oven on for no reason.
After giving up on this book I checked "primal blueprint quick and easy" out of the library and bought "500 paleo recipes" (this one is cheap on amazon, has a great intro with their paleo approach philosophy and how it may contrast, lots of options so you can find things you want to try, the author writes as if they are in the kitchen with you, but does not have pictures). I am facing my second week on paleo/primal with a refreshed outlook after wondering if I was going to make it on the book I'm reviewing.
Sorry... it just didn't work for me.
Hayley Mason and Bill Staley are quite skilled in the kitchen, but they break it down in a way that even novices can handle. With The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking, you can easily make delicious recipes without too much hassle. Each recipe is coded with a difficulty scale so you know right up front what you're getting yourself into. There's a great 30-day meal plan and easy to follow instructions for what's ok, not, and "grey" for paleo. I also love the "time savers" section in the back, full of quick, delicious, and healthy meals. The photos are really appetizing, taken by Bill himself. In short, anyone new to paleo needs this book.
