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. Having EverdayPaleo.com, and now the book, I am able to take a deep breath and relax, knowing there is always a dinner or snack idea at my fingertips"—Aimee Anaya Everett, National Champion Olympic Weightlifter, co-owner Catalyst Athletics and The Performance Menu
"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. We are hooked for life!"—Laura Sullivan Top 100 Artist, New Age Reporter, Sentient Spirit Records
"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
"Working with athletes of all levels...pain at some point may be a reality, and where there is inflammation there is usually loss of function. It is nice for me to be able to send my patients to Everyday Paleo to find quick, easy and delicious Paleo recipes that they can easily prepare and fit into their busy schedules, and more importantly help aid in a quicker recovery by reducing inflammation."—Dr. Dustin Glass, DC, ART; Member of the Sports Medicine Team for the USA Volleyball, National Teams.

A friend of mine sent me a few recipes from Ms. Fragoso's other book, Everyday Paleo and I loved them. They were exactly the kind of things I wanted to see, and could work my own magic on.
Imagine my delight when this book showed up and was from the same author!
This weekend, I made three dishes and all three have turned out fantastic!
A word: This probably isn't very good for Whole30. Unless you want to make all the ingredients from scratch (which she does supply instructions for) you are going to end up with SOME sugar or soy. But, not very much. I'm comfortable with that. She also offers some twists if you are more open in your paleo regimen.
I highly recommend this book!
THIS BOOK IS THREE HUNDRED AND THREE PAGES. THE AUTHOR SPENT SEVENTY ONE PAGES DESCRIBING PHYSICAL FITNESS - AND NO WHERE, NOT ONE PAGE IS THERE A LIST OF THE RECIPES IN THIS BOOK. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
There is a recipe index. It lists every ingredient in the book. Get ready to work to find something to cook. Why? Let's say it's two hours before dinner, you look in the fridge to see what vegetable you have to cook with your steak that is marinating - you find spinach. Since THE RECIPES ARE NOT LISTED ANYWHERE!!! - you go to the handy index. It tells you Spinach is on 55,79,105,113,131,183,185,190-191,201,222-223,225-226. Raw Spinach 201 - Spinach leaves 105,113,115,113. Get to work!!! You can narrow it down a bit since Veggies and Salads are between 118-148. However Soups, Stews and Sauces are between 149-176. Since Beef, Pork and Lamb is between 58-95, you might want to check out the recipe 79 just to be sure. Now multiply that by infinity, take that to the depth of forever, and you will have a glimpse of what I'm talking about. So this book is all but useless for planning a meal from your fridge unless you want to read each recipe one by one.
There are inconsistencies and annoying errors - I am listing just some examples.
Incomplete or missing info:
Puerto Rican Beef Recipe - basically a beef stir fry - does not tell you how many servings. Most of the other recipes do - but for something like a stir fry I really need to know. Guess her proofreaders failed her.
Unrealistic prep times:
Butternut Squash Soup - Prep time 20 minutes, cook time 15 minutes. However, the recipe states to cook the squash in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes. Later I bring water to a boil and cook for 15 minutes. Then remove and let sit for 5 minutes - see what I am getting at? The prep and cook times are probably off by 10 minutes a piece - could be significant if you are time constrained.
Lack of options:
Butternut Squash Soup - The recipe states to cook the squash in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes - but what if I don't have one? Some of the recipes tell you what to do, others don't. Seems this author loves the pressure cooker, and I admit she does tell you to get one in her equipment section. Shame on you if you didn't.
Oprah Style Encouragement and Life Change Message:
Maybe others need this type of motivation and encouragement, but I'd be more motivated by getting the pertinent info I paid for and not all of this other spiritual and mental gobbledygook.
I get it - our Paleolithic ancestors were more physically active than we are today. When I want an exercise book, I will buy one. I bought this to show me what and how to cook. The extra 71 pages I have to skip past and deal with while I am cooking is annoying.
Pages 15-24 and Pages 35-38 outlining what it means in both material, equipment and organizational skills to switch to the Paleo Diet. The food and equipment charts are good, along with the expected shopping changes and food substitutions. Although I have found this in other books her presentation is concise and relatively thorough. The smoothie section was ok, and the thirty day meal planner and school lunch section are also helpful. I have only had the book a week, and the five recipes I cooked turned out just okay. They will be better the second time around when I adjust for their weakness. I did not take off a star for this as I find recipes from many books need tweaking, but these seem to be a good base to start from.
From what I could bear to read about the author and her family - they are top notch people whom I would absolutely love to be my neighbors. Their intentions and ambitions are good but at the end of the day I need to feed my family and this book makes that much more difficult than it has to be... The author is an everyday Mom who has powered her family to Paleo greatness. This does not mean she is proficient at helping others to have the same success. This can be a decent book if you are Paleo, have a repertoire already and don't mind seeing if this book adds a couple of new recipes to your stable. In that case I would buy it used but there are much better options for beginners.
