Review: The Paleo Recipe Book

Overall Impression:
Paleo Recipe Book probably has one of the most professional looking websites I’ve come across. There are many colorful images of amazing looking food on the website and I got instantly excited. The video on the website explains that the book contains over 370 recipes, spread across 18 categories. What I haven’t seen much on other cookbook websites is that the Paleo Recipe book also has a large proportion of auto-immune recipes, meaning that even if you have allergies to for instance, nuts, eggs or nightshades there are still a lot of ways to stick to the paleo diet using this book.

Overall the product looks very professional, and the book is put together incredibly well. I’m very impressed with how the recipes are put into logical categories and I find it easy to find what I’m looking for.

Most recipes seem easy enough, and the harder ones have very clear instructions. I would say that this recipe book would suit just about anyone, even if you have never been in a kitchen before.

Included when you buy the Paleo Recipe Book are:

  • The Paleo Recipe Book
  • 8 Week Meal plan
  • Paleo Desserts Book
  • Simple Paleo Meals
  • Herbs and Spices
  • Cheat Sheets
Chicken Curry

Recipes I Tried:

  • Lemon and Pepper Barbecued Chicken Fingers
  • Chicken and Zucchini Hot Salad
  • Pork Tenderloin with Caramelised Apples
  • Chicken Curry

Cooking From the Paleo Recipe Book:
As I said previously, all the recipes have very clear instructions. It is clearly states how long the prep time and cooking time is for each individual recipe, and the book also tells you exactly what is in the dish in terms of percentage of carbs, protein and fat. Not only does this mean that we get enough of everything, but for instance to sports enthusiasts this will make it a lot easier to monitor exactly what you eat.

The cheat sheet that comes with the book is very helpful indeed. I try to take my tablet computer with me whenever I do the groceries so that whenever I’m not sure about something, I can quickly look it up. I also love the desserts section. Being a big dessert fan myself, I am sometimes stumped on what to make, but the bonus desserts are all incredible. Especially for a sweet tooth like myself.

What Could Be Better:
I haven’t seen many options for breakfast or light lunches in this book. Maybe this wasn’t the point of the author, but personally I always like it when cookbook offer a wide veriety of different types of meals. That being said, there are recipes that could really easily be tweaked into a lighter meal by choosing smaller portions, or leave some ingredients out all together.

Final TakeAway:
Overall I am really impressed with this book. I think the quality of the recipes is incredible, and the images are a good representation of the end result. I have made about 4 to 5 dishes from this book now and they have all been incredible. I’m looking forward to trying more of them! The Paleo Recipe book is amongst the cheapest paleo book I’ve reviewed and it’s amazing value for money.

    i don’t purchase many cookbooks (though I’m working on making a significant portion of The Art of French Cooking paleo, so that’s fun!), but I might actually check this one out!

      I’m glad you found my review useful Lauren! I’m currently going through another couple of cookbooks to put on my website. (one review is almost done, and another I’m testing recipes from)

      I hadn’t heard of he Art of French Cooking Paleo before. I’ll check that one out myself as well.

      Hi Lauren,

      Would you mind sharing a link to that cookbook? I have the “French Paleo Cuisine” by Chef Alain Braux, but I’d be curious to learn more of “The Art of French Cooking Paleo”. :)

    You did such a great job with your review. I love recipes books, especially Paleo!! I’m working on a Paleo/gluten free/WPF type of a Middle Eastern cookbook :)

    • Katie

      Thank you very much! I’m glad it’s useful. When your book is finished, feel free to send me your link so I can review it!

    Katie, what a great review. I also think that out of the diets out there paleo is the most balanced. The only reason I couldn’t do it is I LOVE bread.

    • Katie

      Thank you very much, Analida.

      I think you should give this, or maybe one of the other books a try. I thought I could never give up bread either, but with lovely recipes that are include here, it wasn’t actually too hard. You just need to make the effort in finding alternatives! Good luck!
