"Joshua Weissman’s The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is a lovely volume, with fine recipes for any level of cook and exceptional photography by the author. But embedded within it is a philosophy of food that I hope more people will embrace, one of common sense and a full-on bear hug of excellent food cooked at home with abandon. Even more important, this book is an extraordinary story of a young man who transformed himself through food and cooking and is thus a living emblem of the power of food to transform our lives." (Michael Ruhlman, James Beard Award-winning author of Ruhlman'sTwenty, Charcuterie, The Soul of a Chef, and numerous other books on food and cooking)
"Joshua Weissman, the teenage dynamo behind the remarkable Slim Palate blog, has figured out at the tender age of 17 that the secret to a healthy life is eating nourishing home-cooked meals. With his sophisticated palate and discerning eye, Joshua’s recipes and enticing photos will inspire young and old to take charge of their wellness by getting in the kitchen." (Michelle Tam, author of Nom Nom Paleo)
"One of Joshua Weissman’s strengths in The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is the way he impressively balances his youthfulness with maturity. At only 17, Joshua has created a cookbook filled with sophisticated recipes that people of all ages can appreciate, all while keeping the recipes easy enough for the inexperienced cook to follow.With exceptional photography, delicious recipes, and a unique point of view, The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is an entertaining read and a worthy resource!" (Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint)
"I am a big fan of Josh’s food and so happy that he has come out with this cookbook full of healthy, delicious recipes!" (Elana Amsterdam, New York Times best-selling author of Paleo Cooking from Elana's Pantry)
About the Author
Teenager Joshua Weissman is an accomplished real-food advocate and food blogger who writes and photographs for the increasingly popular blog Slim Palate (slimpalate.com). At a young age he began to struggle with weight problems, and his health began to decline. Even simple tasks such as walking up stairs grew difficult for him. He was physically and verbally harassed at school, causing frequent bouts of depression. Wanting to change his life and his eating habits, Joshua did extensive research and found a way to use whole, natural foods to create elegant, palate-pleasing recipes that helped him lose weight without sacrificing flavor. He lost more than 100 pounds and is now fit and happy. His affinity for food and cooking compels him to share his kitchen tips and tempting, nourishing recipes with the world. Joshua focuses on the use of whole foods and grass-fed/pastured meats in his cooking and makes note of the empowering benefits of buying locally. He feels that food is a powerful expression of love and relationship that is enriched by knowing where your food comes from and knowing that it’s properly raised.

He's a kid (18) who's overcome obesity by eating clean, whole foods, and I think sharing his work online and with the publication of a book will do wonders for young kids and adults who may not know where to begin in their health journeys.
This book is gorgeous from cover to cover. So far, I've made the prosciutto egg cups (another win) and look forward to making the pumpkin blondies. Seriously, everything in here looks amazing, and I can't wait to hopefully try all the recipes.
Congrats, Josh, on the win and continued success to you!
I got it yesterday, and I was so, so, so impressed! I loved how he explained Paleo and also what worked for him in his path to healthy eating for a healthy body. Lots of very good advice and information to begin. Then....the recipes. Very well written, easy to understand and carry out. And unlike a recent Paleo dessert cookbook I read that required this one, very expensive ingredient in EVERY recipe, all of Josh's recipes are accessible to the average cook. He promotes eating real food, and although the best quality is preferred, it won't kill the recipe (and the purchase of the book overall) if you substitute some items (say, a regular cut of beef vs. grain-fed if you can't afford/find it). He explains this all. And the PHOTOS. Each recipe (with the exception of sauces - totally understandable) is paired with beautifully staged shots of mouth watering dishes. My mouth was literally watering after reading the descriptions and ogling the pics.
This book is totally worth adding to your kitchen. Notice I didn't say bookshelf. We have all made a cookbook purchase that just wasn't what we hoped it would be. We may have perused the pages and not been really struck to try any of the recipes. And then it just sits and gets the occasional "Oh yeah...I've been meaning to try something outta there". But....we never do. And by "we" I mean me. With "The Slim Palate Cookbook" - the exact opposite. I have already planned on picking up a few things for the recipe for short ribs to make tonight. And the Moroccan Chicken tomorrow. And the Paleo pancakes this weekend.
Josh - job VERY well done! I am proud of you, and you have inspired me.
