More Fabulous Cookbooks!

There are a plethora of low carb and paleo cookbooks out there.  Here are a few more, but be sure to look at what is available as your tastes may be different from ours!

Low Carbing Among Friends  A bunch of Low Carb, Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free, and Sugar-Free recipes.  I like this one because I’ve met a few of the authors or I have heard them speak!

1001 Low Carb Recipes by Dana Carpender.  A low carb writing guru, this is a collection of her tastiest recipes.  If you can’t find a few favorites in here then I am not sure that you are trying!

The Primal Blueprint Cookbook by Mark Sisson.  Mark writes a wonderful book on Primal Living and this is one of his cookbooks using the paleo diet. 

Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals by Mark Sisson.  I use this one often to whip up some paleo dishes – quickly!

The Paleo Diet Cookbook by Loren Cordain, Ph.D. A cookbook from the Paleo Guru himself.  Dr. Cordain shares some very delicious recipes.

My Favorite Cookbooks So Far


Make It Paleo  I love this cookbook.  There is something here for everyone.  Over 100 recipes.  I use it all the time


Paleo Comfort Foods  Just like, Make It Paleo, you should only buy this if you love food.  Over 200 recipes.


Well Fed This takes cooking to the next level.  Will add a lot of diversity to the above books.

Cookbook review: “Eat Like a Dinosaur”


Eat Like a Dinosaur is a new cookbook just published by The Paleo Parents just a few weeks ago.  It is the first Paleo-oriented cookbook that is child-oriented.  Not just in the recipes themselves, but the authors include steps in each recipe that can be performed by your child.  I think this is WONDERFUL.  Not only are you preparing the right foods for your child, but you are TEACHING your child how to prepare these foods for themselves. Win-Win.  I met The Paleo Parents on the 2012 Low Carb Cruise.  They described the rationale behind the cookbook.  Their children were a bit overweight and they were also having behavioral problems (ADHD or out-of-control type symptoms).  The children were placed on gluten-free (wheat free) diets (if you’ve done your homework on wheat, you know what modern wheat can do – see my “Recommended Reading” section.)  Some of the recipes have small amounts of sugar and dairy.  The bottomline is this: I’ve been suggesting the book to the parents in my office for 2 weeks now and I’ve seen nothing but smiles on my parents faces – for all the right reasons.
