Staying focused on my Paleo lifestyle is important to me, and thanks to Everyday Paleo, I am never short on easy, quick, and delicious meal ideas for me and my family.

"As a busy mom, composer and recording artist, preparing healthy meals used to seem incredibly challenging until Sarah showed me how it's done. Her recipes are simple to prepare, even for myself as a newbie to Paleo. With her help, I'm now healthier and more fit than I've ever been in my life, and my entire family as well. And the best thing is, her recipes are delicious and even my young daughter, who is a picky eater, has favorites that she absolutely loves from Sarah's recipe collection.

"Since I've been involved in CrossFit, there have been numerous things I've become introduced to that have really helped me become physically and mentally stronger; as well as insight I've gained on how to live healthier once I step outside the gym, for both me and my family. Among them has been my introduction to Everyday Paleo. Sarah has an informative blog, with wonderful pictures and AMAZINGLY easy recipes!! I am by no means a good cook, I never have been. However, Sarah has made these recipes so easy, quick, and so delicious that my children (ages: 7 and 3) not only eat them, but they ask for MORE!! Sarah, I am so thankful for you and for Everyday Paleo. For making it simple, quick, and delicious. And, for helping us to live so much healthier, inside and out!!"—Linda Leipper, 2008 Crossfit Games Finalist

Also, YAY for photos! Most paleo cookbooks out right now have zero photos, so I loved that I could actually see what the finished meal looked like. It just makes it so much more appealing.
If you're looking for more simple paleo recipe books, here are a couple that are equally good:
Cave Wraps: 40 Fast & Easy Paleo Recipes for the Best Damn Wraps Ever
Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat
If you're looking for more confirmation that the paleo diet works, I'm living proof! I've lost over 20 pounds and have the energy of a ten year old. Paleo works.
Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook picks up where the author's first book, Everyday Paleo, left off. While her first book was an excellent introduction to the the paleo lifestyle, this one provides busy homemakers a practical set of recipies for keeping the dinner table full. It starts, however, with a quick introduction to Paleo for those who haven't read Everyday Paleo. The basic outline is given right away -- foods to avoid, and foods to eat.
Here's the table of contents, to let you know what's inside the book:
-Basic Food Guide
-The Lunch Box for Kids and Grownups Too
-Quick and Simple Meal Ideas
-What Sarah Wants You to Have and Where to Find It
-One Week Meal Plan
---Sauces and Dips
---Slow Cooker Recipies
---Soups and Stews
---Sides, Salads and Small Plates
---Fruity Creations and Treats
As you can see, this book is definitely family oriented, and it's really meant to get you up and running quickly with Paleo eating and cooking. So there's helpful information about making the transition to Paleo -- especially for when you meet kids' resistance.
A couple things set this book apart.Read more ›
Sarah is incredibly talented and inventive with her cooking, and I was so excited to try out her new recipes in Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook. I have tried a few so far and they are all excellent. One of the best things about Sarah's recipes is that they are simple but delicious - usually not too many ingredients and easy to follow directions. This is the only kind of cooking that I can do with two little kids. Also, this new book is so much more than just a cookbook. It is packed with information and guidelines to help you bring your children on board too. We are still working on transitioning our 3- and 5-year-olds to eating full-time paleo too, and Sarah's tips have been tremendously helpful.
If you are considering trying to go paleo, you must have Sarah's books. I am an evolutionary biologist, so I am completely on board with the whole adaptation argument for eating paleo. But, even if the science doesn't convince you, you will be a believer if you just try eating this way for a month. I felt like a different person almost immediately. I used to nearly pass out if I didn't eat every 2-3 hours, and I had a persistent sweet tooth. I feel so much more in control of eating now, I never go hungry, and I definitely see major physical differences as well. I am always trying to convert friends and family to paleo eating, and the Everyday Paleo books are the first things that I recommend to get started.
I have cooked six of the recipes in this book so far. I have a fairly picky family- they don't like things to be outside their comfort zone. They have enjoyed everything so far. They LOVED the hash recipe- I know they will request that again and again and it is very easy and tasty. The nice thing about that recipe, and many of the recipes in this book, is that they are really several recipes in one. There are different ideas for substitutions that can be made depending on the season or for different tastes. My family won't get tired of eating that hash because I can make it so many different ways- and none of them would require more planning or a different skill set.
One thing about the book is it is a very easy cookbook. You really can get a sit-down meal quickly and easily made. It doesn't require hours of labor. It also has great packable recipes and ideas, which is so helpful for lunches.
I would recommend this book to people who are busy and trying to maintain their paleo eating without stressing about what to make with little time.
