    Great Book for those starting out with a paleo lifestyle!

    The front cover had my 3 year old son enticed from the moment I opened the box. I loved reading the introduction and how the transition played a role Stacy and Matt's household. Chapter 1 "The Boring Chapter for Parents" was very amusing and very informative, especially with useful tidbits on how to get your household transitioned to a Paleo stocked household. We have already tried two of the recipes: "Grain-Free Granola" on page 175 is absolutely delicious and the perfect fix for the cereal loving folks out there. "Anytime Cookies" on page 171 was the perfect treat. My husband could not believe that I did not add sugar to the mix. The banana, apple, and almond butter naturally sweetens these cookie treats. This is a must have, especially for those with children. I love how the book has useful icons to let you know steps your children can be involved in and the little sticky notes with helpful reminders or tips on the sidebar. Love this book and can't wait to cook some more recipes!

    I’m going to begin this review with a confession: I am not

    I’m going to begin this review with a confession: I am not an aspiring paleo parent. In fact, I’m not a parent at all. I am a single, urban 20-something who for the last 6 months has been making the transition from subsisting on a sad diet of frozen meals and protein bars to eating real, whole foods without grains, dairy, legumes or refined/artificial sugar. I read every popular book on the paleo/primal lifestyle, followed countless recipe blogs, and even tracked down annoyingly obscure studies on food allergies and analyses of omega-3:6 ratios. As you can imagine, I felt like I was drowning in information and struggling to make paleo work for me.

    When “Eat Like a Dinosaur” found it’s way into my life a couple of weeks ago (thanks to a friend), I briefly skimmed through it assuming it wouldn’t apply to my life.

    But I was distracted by the beautiful, appetizing photos. I slowed my skimming to read the simple, easy-to-follow recipes. And I finally flipped back to read the story of the lovely family that created the book. I learned how Stacy and Matt lost more than 200 pounds combined. And how their children no longer have asthma, eczema, allergies or behavioral issues. Curled up in bed that night, I devoured “Eat Like a Dinosaur,” and it felt like a light-bulb went on in my head.

    The Paleo Parents story reminded me of the original reason I decided to try paleo: Because I wanted to be free of a cycle of failed diets. Because I wanted to find physical health and emotional well-being. Because I didn’t want to hate my body anymore. That’s a message that’s important for children, parents, and all of us who fall in between.

    “Eat Like a Dinosaur” may seem like just another cookbook for families, piggy-backing on an extension of the gluten-free trend. But for me, personally, it is so much more. It’s an inspiration to take care of myself and proof that taking the time to treat your body with respect, with foods that nourish/fuel it, is absolutely worth it.

    I know the paleo/primal eating isn’t for everybody. But I truly believe “Eat Like a Dinosaur” is.
