Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans clearly describes what the Paleo diet is all about and why it makes sense. As a cook who embraces all diets, and therefore no particular diet beyond fresh cooked food, I love this book for its sound techniques, flavorful pairings, and innovative dishes. There's also a contagious joyousness about the way Michelle presents food that makes you want to cook along with her. I want to cook Paleo because she makes it look so fun!
-Michael Ruhlman, James Beard Award-winning author of numerous books about food and cooking, including Ruhlman's Twenty and Charcuterie
I don't care if you're a discriminating foodie or a picky tot: If you're a human who eats food, you need this book. Nom Nom Paleo's lip-smacking recipes, zany humor, and eye-popping style will prove to you that Paleo won't just make you look, feel, and perform better--you'll eat better, too.
-Robb Wolf, New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Solution
This book is just plain fun--packed with creative cartoon graphics, tasty photos, and yummy recipes that appeal not only to committed Paleo dieters, but to anyone who loves good food.
-Bruce Aidells, IACP Award-winning author of The Great Meat Cookbook
A delightful read--playful, irreverent, fun--from beginning to end, with easy-to-follow recipes that will inspire anyone wanting to eat a more healthy diet. Thank you, Michelle and Henry, for showing us that eating Paleo doesn't have to mean eating steak and broccoli every day!
-Elise Bauer, award-winning creator of SimplyRecipes.com
"What's for dinner?" is no longer a stress-inducing conundrum, as Nom Nom Paleo proves that cooking for your family can be easy, healthy, and fun. Featuring delicious recipes and lots of kitchen self-help, this book details step-by-step instructions perfect for the stovetop-challenged, and enough variations to inspire the budding chef. And the photos... oh, the photos! Worthy of their very own coffee table, the pictures and original illustrations make this unique cookbook perfect for the visual learner.

My expectations were way beyond exceeded. The cookbook itself is absolutely gorgeous--it has a big, solid cover, easily turnable pages, and beautiful pictures that really make you hungry! You'd never guess that this was a "paleo" cookbook: it looks (and is) very professional.
Whether you are an experienced chef or a newbie home cook, you'll find a recipe that's just right for you. There are simple dishes, like shrimp and watermelon skewers, that are perfect for quick weeknight dinners, and more complex dishes, like the Southwest Cowboy Chili, that are great projects for weekend culinary adventures. So far, I have made the Spicy Coconut Shrimp, Peruvian Spatchcocked Chicken, Slow-Cooker Kahlua Pig, Polpette di Vitello, and Egg Fo Young--all five have been tasty, easy to prepare, and really pretty on the plate. (My favorite so far? Hands-down the Peruvian Spatchcocked Chicken.) I'm also looking forward to trying the Slow-Cooker Korean Short Ribs, Devils on Horseback, Pistachio Apple Salad, and Crispy Gizzard Confit, among many others...I know I'll keep turning back to this cookbook for months to come.
One other review complained that the recipes were "too simple." In my opinion, we sometimes get so wrapped up in fancy, complicated preparations that we forget what tastes best: things like a warm baked sweet potato, slow-cooked roast beef, or a perfect hardboiled egg. Michelle's recipes have really inspired me to get back to basics and just enjoy the taste of simply prepared vegetables and protein.
I'd highly recommend this cookbook for anyone who is passionate about healthy food, from those just exploring paleo to old-time pros. I promise you won't be disappointed.
I love Michelle's blog and she is my go-to for delicious paleo recipes. No question - knew I would love this cookbook. There is no shortage of beautiful photography or mouth watering meals. She is truly an artist on both sides of the camera. While her recipes do require a little more prep and sometimes special ingredients it has always been worth the extra effort in my opinion. She is a talented writer with great wit but also a smart instructor. So much so I know I can refer my husband to one of her recipes and he is able to prepare it without incident. This is saying a lot!
I love the layout of the book and enjoyed reading her intros, etc. I always learn something new - a lot of hidden gems. I haven't had an issue finding my way around the book. I like how she designed the chapters - there is a definite flow. And the book mark ribbon is genius! Why don't all cookbooks have these built in?
I would recommend this book to any human who eats food! I do not own many cookbooks at all. The few I do have sit and collect dust. Since I opened "nom nom paleo" I have not shut it. I plan my weekly menu around these recipes and I couldn't be more satisfied. I make the Thai omelet at least twice a week. Other favorites include prosciutto-wrapped frittata muffins; Fiona's green chicken with coconut pineapple "rice" and slow cooker chicken + (best ever) gray.
BUY THIS BOOK!
I've been slowly trying to incorporate Primal/Paleo ideals into my family's lifestyle. While I'll never be 100% anything but myself, I love to add amazing recipes to my collection. If it doesn't taste good, I don't care how healthy it is, I'm not going to eat it.
I'm a food addict and this most definitely is one of my fixes.
I suggest starting with something quick and simple so you have an idea of just how amazing this woman is. Something the whole family will love, that only takes a little prep and a handful of ingredients, like the chicken nuggets. Trust me, make them and you'll be hooked. You'll never eat mcdonalds again. Why would you when you can have fast, amazing, and healthy at home?
Trust me, you'll be glad you bought this, a cookbook collection is just not complete without it.
