A New Way of Eating

If you train at a Cross Fit gym, you are usually encouraged to give Paleo a try. The Paleo way of eating can be a bit restrictive as it emphasizes whole, natural foods. Meats, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit and nuts are delicious by themselves, but it’s great to read some cookbooks that show how to combine these foods to add variety to your meals. Here a few of the books in the Library’s collection and we have many more…come check them out!

The Paleo Diet Cookbook is written by Dr. Loren Cordain, whose book, The Paleo Diet, began the whole movement. It includes 150 simple recipes for delicious and Paleo-friendly breakfasts, brunches, lunches, dinners, snacks, and beverages.

Sarah Fragoso’s new title, Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook: RealFood for Real Life, features recipes that she cooks for her entire family. Since it has to be yummy or the kids won’t touch the food, the reader is assured some great tasting meals.

Mark Sisson’s two cookbooks, The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and The Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals:Delicious Primal-Approved Meals You Can Make in Under 30 Minutes, are filled with well thought out primal recipes that can easily be adapted to pure paleo.

For something really different try Melissa Joulwen’s Well Fed. She shows how to make a basic recipe and then gives further tips on how to spice each dish up in several other ways. She goes beyond standard American cooking and incorporates international ingredients in her fare. She is also the author of the newest Paleo title, Living Paleo for Dummies.
