Our First Paleo Book: Make it Paleo
Reposted from our sister blog, Helpful Hints For Living…
OK folks many of you have been clamoring for for info on the Paleo diet ever since that post yesterday on the bacon wrapped hot dogs (oh, so, good – and BTW make sure to use nitrate and gluten free bacon and dogs) so here is the first post in a series on the books we got to help us move to this way of eating.
This is not a clinical book with lots of reasons on why to switch – this is a great book with ideas, food and recipes which will inspire you. If you want a more scientific reasoning of why you should switch you need The Paleo Solution. But Make It Paleo is much more inspirational and the source of most of our recipes. Highly recommend the print book over the Kindle edition, great big imagery of food, food and more food.
Transitioning from conventional foods to a grain-free Paleo lifestyle can be a daunting proposition to most people. Hayley Mason and Bill Staley, authors of The Food Lovers Primal Palate, show you how easy it is to take any dish and Make it Paleo! Adapted from Chinese, French, Mexican and classic American meals, the over 200 mouthwatering recipes are each accompanied by vibrant photos and thoughtful notes to ensure you recreate each dish with ease.
Beyond its wealth of recipes, Make it Paleo describes fundamental cooking techniques, includes tips for selecting the best ingredients, and chronicles a variety of menus for holidays and special occasions. Hayley and Bill demonstrate how to make cooking gourmet Paleo meals a carefree affair for everyone, from a kitchen rookie to a seasoned chef. Make it Paleo is filled with meals that all lovers of great food will enjoy, whether they follow a grain-free lifestyle or not.
