Sample recipe: Paleo Grilled Lamb Chops
If you're looking for something different to throw on the grill, why not try lamb chops?
Lamb chops are a great alternative to the usual chicken breasts or steaks. This version, with a simple garlic and lemon marinade, is easy to make and super delicious.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, shallot, and oregano. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Stir to combine well.
Put the lamb chops and the marinade in a gallon-size freezer bag and shake. Chill for at least an hour, and up to 24.
When ready to cook, preheat grill to high heat. Grill the chops for about 5 minutes per side. Allow to rest for 10 minutes and serve.
- 6 lamb chops
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cups lemon juice
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small shallot, minced
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
"What really drew me to this book was how literally down to earth it is. Chatham sets up a really simple plan to follow that has its roots in how the early cavemen ate ... This diet isn't unrealistic or complicated, and requires no exotic ingredients or crazy exercise routines. While this is more of a life-style change than a crash diet, it will eventually eliminate your cravings for all the bad food that causes so many health problems."
"Here is a great and simple book to get you started on Paleo eating. It is easy with straight forward advice and it is full of practical tips and almost 100 recipes. It has a seven day step-by-step program and a shopping guide to get you started."

The gluten free recipes didn't solve my problem. I was still getting worse, and every week something else would start hurting my stomach, giving me bloody diarrhea, cramping and bloating. My family doctor told me all tests were normal, and suggested a whole30 or paleo type of diet.
I bought this book. I love to cook, but hate to follow directions, so everything usually turns out nasty when I cook. But I'm really trying.
The introduction had me wondering if I was up to a diet so strict, but it seemed very interesting that all the things on the restricted list were the ones that were hurting me.
To make a long story short, I'm not better, but thanks to this book, I can now eat recipes that don't hurt me.
The recipes are simple and the setup makes me want to try them. The introduction had me convinced that those gluten free books were a waste of money.
I'm slowly sneaking paleo recipes into my family's life, and my toddlers love it.
All I know is that when I stick to this book, I feel completely fine. I think I am hooked.
I initially lost 10 pounds in 2.5 weeks while starting, but then went on a 2 week vacation to visit family and gained 6 back. Grandma and mom won't here of you refusing their mashed potatoes and gravy. I did notice while on eating "regular" food again that I was much more fatigued and sluggish. I am back from vacation and eating according to the paleo diet and have lost 4 of the 6 pounds I gained. I feel more energetic and much better.
The Paleo diet has certain restrictions (no grains, dairy or refined sugars), but the recipes are structured so that you wouldn't miss them. The breakfast recipes are where I would most miss the restricted ingredients, but lunch and dinner recipes would be no problem for me. And I would be delighted to try the desserts. Paleo for Beginners is a delightful book for anyone curious about the Paleo diet, and good for a cookbook enthusiast as well.

I skipped the scientific part and went straight to the food list.
seems easy enough to follow and I will be giving it a go. for me, low carb has always been the only diet that worked, the Paleo isn't as restrictive in some ways as traditional LCHF as it allows more fruit, but then you are not supposed to eat any dairy.
the recipes are American so its all in cups, my own fault as I did see a British version but still bought this one!!.
some of the ingredients are hard to obtain in a weekly shop, Almond Butter, Coconut flour etc.. ( coconut Aminos, wth is that??) so not good on a budget.
some nice slow cooker recipes that I will definitely be trying. Though some seemed a little contradictory with the ingredients and what was allowed on the food list , for example, ALL potatoes are forbidden in any way shape or form yet a couple of the recipes include sweet potatoes ( not allowed on the list). similarly some use tapioca to thicken - another no no on the food list.
just remains to be seen if it actually works ;) think its one to ease into.....
