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)

(Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint)

About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is divided into eight sections: breakfast, poultry, meat, seafood, soups/stews, vegetables, desserts/sweets, and sauces/dressings/dips. Meats, vegetables, and seafood make up the majority of this book. Recipes range from dead simple and easy (Prosciutto Egg Cups) to fairly involved (Herbed Pork Loin) but I don't think any of the recipes are difficult enough to scare away any semi-confident home chef. The recipes do not include a cooking time up front so I would read through them in their entirety before deciding what to tackle - luckily, each recipe is well-crafted, concise, and approachable, so it shouldn't be an issue.
Like many books currently entering the Paleo scene, The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook is testing the limits of what constitutes "Paleo", siding with the camp that believes individuals should make their own minds up about what to eat and what to avoid. In his cookbook, Weissman embraces some forms of dairy (butter, ghee, cream, yogurt) to delicious effect, with substitutions for non-dairy products when appropriate.
The book is gorgeous - peppered with stunning photography across a simple, clean layout. It's very impressive and encourages you to flip through and earmark many of the recipes.Read more ›
This is a new book by Victory Belt Publishing, a press that supports a Real Food diet and the Primal/Paleo lifestyle. The cookbook is a large-size quality publication, 271 pages of delectable, but surprisingly easy-to-prepare recipes and filled with photos by the author. What's even more amazing is that Mr. Weissman is eighteen years old! He tells a story of becoming a foodie at a young age, then abandoning it for a fast-food lifestyle. Over the years he gained weight. Lots of it. Then, tired of the ridicule over his size, he decided to do something about it. His research led him to the Primal/Paleo style of eating. Soon he was losing weight and feeling better, and he started a blog with the purpose of helping others. People took notice and encouraged him to write a cookbook. Enter The Slim Palate, named after his popular blog and featuring not only recipes but lots of helpful information on charting a course to success.
Weissman's writing style is warm and informative, and displays a wisdom beyond his years. Also, unlike many Paleo books, Joshua offers substitutions such as the addition or omission of cheese, sweetening with stevia or honey, thus making a book that you can tailor to your preferred choices.
Each recipe is accompanied by a lovely color photo. I appreciate that the photos aren't the House Beautiful or Martha Stewart idea of perfection, but rather dishes plated in an earthenware bowl atop a length of folded burlap and with a fork your Great Aunt Emily might have used at her table.Read more ›
