Cons: Beginners may need more recipes in addition to this book to get started
"Living Paleo for Dummies" is a great book for the beginner who just read a Paleo book and wondered what the next step is. In very clear language full of food lists, helpful tips and a collection of recipes it offers Paleo newbies (and more advanced Paleo enthusiasts who need more food ideas) an excellent toolkit of recipe idea starters and reference. Included is a program outline for a 30-Day Reset, something I find particularly useful for a Paleo newbie needing a challenge to get started.
What I did found particularly unique about this book is its approach. Readers will get more than just a book of recipes, you will get a reference book of Paleo as a lifestyle. You'll learn why certain foods are better for you instead of just being told to eat them. You'll learn how to live more naturally and in tune with the principles of Paleo-natural, flexible, and adaptable in exercise, at home, and at work.
The one thing that is missing is a weekly plan or guide, which can be a downfall for newbies. While I understand why the author chose not to include a weekly plan (to get readers a chance at variety), this can be a stumbling block. In other words, if I throw all non-Paleo foods out like the book suggests, what should my first meal be? If you are a good cook, this shouldn't be a problem. If not, you may need a couple more recipe books first before you get started on something like a 30-Day Reset.
