I use this cookbook quite often. I have never had a dish that I didn't like. Yes, it takes time to get used to a lifestyle change such as this. This cookbook will ease the transition. While your taste buds yearn for sugar, your body will thank you in the long run.If you're on the verge of developing type 2 diabetes, you've got a difficult question to ask yourself: Do you prefer sugar and carbohydrates to having your own feet, a healthy liver and both kidneys? I believe this question has an easy answer.
Which brings me to this book. I love food. Going Paleo can be tough, and in spite of it being much easier after seeing such amazing results within three days, I still yearned for some of my former favorites. This book gave many of those foods back to me. "Bread," tortillas, condiments, fried and "breaded" meats, soups, salads, and so many other wonderful recipes I'm eager to try out. And though I haven't had much opportunity to delve too deeply into trying all the recipes, those I have tried have been amazing. It helps so much for getting over those refined/processed carb and sugar withdrawals I still feel niggling at the back of my mind.
For those like me who aren't looking to live a reenactment of an ancient paleo lifestyle, this book will be, and is, a godsend. Paleo-fying modern foods--comfort foods at that--helps me continue my love affair with food. So many flavors, so many recipes, so many options...and one recipe can spawn so many other experiments and variations. This cookbook is like my gateway drug into Paleo eating. It's changed how I view my food and its ingredients. I pay a lot more attention now to, not just the ingredients, but to the source of those ingredients. In the course of this, I've learned about all sorts of "miracle foods," from the incredible health benefits of Yerba Mate (I prefer the loose leaf Guayaki brand) to the unique properties of raw honey to the beneficial power of saturated fats. I can finally embrace my inner butter-lover and feel good about it. I'm always grinning, with relish, as I slather my food in heavenly grass-fed butter ( Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter Foil 8.0 oz (pack of 20) is fantastic). My family shakes their heads at me, but I'll convert them one of these days, I tell you.
And I tell a lot of people about this amazingly simple solution to helping heal so many ails. I'm a living testament to how modern miracles can be found in the simplest of places and solutions: diet change. Some would say "never would work," but no matter how hard they try I'll still be standing here in silent defiance of their denial. The reality is, this diet has not just changed my life, it's saved my life...and this cookbook is an indispensable tool in that. I carry it everywhere and plan on trying literally every recipe within its pages--they look and sound that good. Everything I've tried so far has become a permanent staple in my diet because they're that tasty, versatile, and indispensable. Many food possibilities have opened for me because of this book. So I will urge you, whether you feel you are "healthy enough" or you are suffering (be it from disease, depression, or what modern conventional "wisdom" terms, "signs of aging"), you owe it to yourself to at least try this diet and pick up this cookbook. It might be tough breaking the addictions at first, but the benefits far exceed the initial struggle and this cookbook definitely helps strike a killing blow against the "old ways."
My only gripe with the book is that the Table of Contents only lists the chapter headings and the index lists every instance of an ingredient without indicating which are the main recipes. I was looking for a particular ingredient and it had 15 page numbers under it in the index, most just leading to a page where the word was mentioned. Also there is a heavy reliance on nuts and nut meals/flours as a replacement for wheat flour--especially in the desserts. Since nuts are a migraine trigger for me, that eliminates nearly half of the recipes for me, but I still the book is worthy of four stars.
Any cookbook is going to fall apart as some people are complaining about. Im kind of surprised ALL cookbooks dont come with a spiral binding (duh right?).. that is why I have cookbooks and i have a recipe box. If I make a recipe and its good enough that i want it again- it goes in the recipe box- which is where the two recipes ive used so far will be going. Im not a big fan of wondering what book that one recipe i made a while back was... right? :)
update: Ive had this book a few weeks and its my go-to recipe book before any others because everything turns out awesome! sure i tweak things here and there to my tastes but the recipes are still from this book and its made me excited about cooking. My favorite so far out of the many paleo cookbooks i have.

I am very pleased to say that this cookbook does exactly what I wanted it to do and much more. It is well laid out, colourful, informative and has importantly the recipes I wanted, including & I know I shouldn't but I was looking for a recipe for bread, and this book included a recipe for bread... I know what other paleo people are going to say but sometimes I just need a bit of bread for toast and I wanted a paleo alternative.
Anyway this book is great and that is why I have given it 5 stars because in my opinion it is worth it.
I am not much of a cook, or (particularly) a cook-book fan; but this book is superb and I cannot recommend it highly enough!
There is a great range of recipes covering all possible meal (and snack) occasions; including Christmas (which I had been a little anxious about coping with previously - having recently decided to 'go primal' in my diet and exercise.) No longer am I anxious - I can't wait to cook and to entertain with these recipes! My only problem now will be which to choose - they all look so good. (On that note - they genuinely do 'look' good too, as the accompanying photos are glossy and tempting).
I checked out many different Primal/ Paleo/ Gluten-free cookbooks before going with this one. I bought two others. Off everything I checked out and bought, this is by far the best. Simple, varied and tempting. Don't worry about potentially U.S. expressed units of measurements (Cups etc) - you get weight and volume given also, so it really is simple.
My advice would be - don't hesitate to buy it!
