The line that really snagged my attention was (I'm paraphrasing here) ' The evolutionary process of our bodies hasn't had time to catch up to the way we are currently eating.', which basically means that our bodies literally are not capable of digesting all of the preservatives and processed junk that you find in foods nowadays. Think about it- 200 years ago, they weren't adding Red Dye #14 to their cookies or whatever to make them a fun Valentines color and they surely weren't adding chemical preservatives to make sure the food could last on a shelf for 10 years like you find in canned goods today.
This book outlines pretty specifically what foods are "approved" for this type of diet and even explains what the "Paleo Purists" would and wouldn't do. Also, they give the reasons why this diet is believed to be so "healthful" for your body. They even explain what they have left out of the book as far as certain types of foods in the recipes they have in the back of the book. I was thinking that this book would be a general, glossed over version of how the paleo diet works and that I probably wouldn't get much information out of it. I WAS WRONG! I feel like even if I don't start the Paleo diet, I am at least pretty well informed of what it is and what the guidelines include.
Like I said in the title of this review, it seems to be very cooking intensive, so if you hate cooking, don't know how (and don't want to try) then this diet and book aren't for you.
HOWEVER if you don't mind cooking and are interested in a diet that will get your body back to the basics, then you should really spend the money for this book. At the very least, they have some pretty awesome sounding recipes that I skimmed through and they look fairly easy to make. I think I'm an 'advanced' level cook and most of these recipes look easy enough that even a beginner can handle them.
Like I said, I don't know if I'm ready to commit to the Paleo diet, but I will CERTAINLY be trying a lot of the recipes in the back of the book!! I hope you find what you are looking for in this book, I did!
I do need to note that I did not pay for this ebook and I did receive it for free.
Although the nutritionally conscious 4 week-plan meals and recipes, coupled with the inferred testimony and endorsements from outside health authorities, are truly titillating and trustworthy, the Paleo method seems rather archaic, both literally and figuratively. Most notably, the prehistoric labeling and connotations alone conjure an all-natural, primitive ideology that caters to those seeking to experiment with alternative health strategies. More specifically, the Paleo title implies that espousing some form of uncharted, ancestral wisdom (as embodied in the Paleo diet) will unlock unprecedented health benefits – when really, this diet imitates some of the most generic health principles practiced by millions, and the only element differentiating it from others like it is the way that it is marketed (i.e. – branding it as a “Paleo” regimen). The book is a reiteration of some of the most basic knowledge and practical approaches to smart dieting (good fats vs. bad fats, expulsion of processed/refined foods, increased fruits/veggies, incorporating more Omega 3 fatty acids, etc.)
Paleo is a decent read with a commendable (albeit trite) approach to healthy eating. “HonorarYummy” Recipe Mentions: Chicken, Mushroom and Sage Omelet, Maple Glazed Porkchops, Fried Cauliflower “Rice” with Shrimp, Chocolate Coconut Truffles, Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream and Paleo “Cheesecake”.
