    Disclosure here: I was given this book for free to review. If you're anyone who's interested in the Paleo Diet, this is one of the best books out there. It provides concise information about what the Paleo diet is about. In a nutshell, the Western diet is not good for our health, and certainly not what our ancestors are presumed to have eaten. The Paleo diet aims to correct these wrongs, and put things in balance. What's included is a list of Paleo-friendly foods, and those that are not-so-friendly. They then include delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts. The list is extensive, but recipes are easy to do. Would recommend this book!

    I thought that this book was a great and informative read. I learned many things about my diet that was limiting my weight loss success. The history and origin of the agriculture diet was described and explained. The ill effects of gluten were thoroughly explained  and even describes what is happening to your body when this substance is immersed into your body. Many ailments affect people and they have no idea that the cause is from the things that they  are eating everyday. Paleo for Beginners shows you how to transition your kitchen into a healthy place meant for a healthy lifestyle. I recommend this book for anyone that wants to make a dietary change and improve their overall health

    This cookbook covers the Paleo lifestyle and diet.  While this book includes recipes, I think the most important thing is the information concerning the type of Paleo you might be looking for.  The many types of food that are included cover different types of meals of the day like Breakfast, Lunch and Snacks.  This book could be helpful to someone who wants a different type of foods to eat.

    “Paleo for Beginners” is outstanding. I gained immense knowledge about bodies, health, and our lifestyles.
    It is very thorough, with more than enough ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The diet doesn’t deprive you of desserts, but instead teaches a healthy approach to sugars.

    This book includes everything you need to know about the history of Paleo and benefits of the diet for your health.  The information is easy to understand and apply.  I loved the 10 Steps for Success included in this book.  Very realistic ways to help integrate the healthier elements of the diet into daily life, and keep motivated!  It also offers plenty of healthy recipes and even a grocery list guide to get you started.  Definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their diets and health!

    Admittedly so, the 30 day diet not only looks good, but is probably quite delicious. What is difficult for me to digest are the facts brought to light in regards to disases of the affluent. A small amount of possible facts, but the remaining seems more like old wives tales.

    This book briefly explains the Paleo diet and then jumps into specific ways to shift your diet to Paleo, including meal plans, recipes, changes for special dietary needs, and how to eat Paleo outside the home. Its biggest flaws are the lack of consistent scientific evidence backing the diet and the failure to address the sustainability of the diet.

    Now that I have read Paleo for Beginners, it seems much more feasible to tackle a dietary change. This book is both informative and through, explaining why this style of eating works and how to make it family friendly. The Spiced Banana Coconut waffles and the pad Thai with zucchini and carrot noodles sound easy to make and will appeal to a wide audience. Can’t wait to try the Mango Almond custard!

    This book is a great introduction to a Paleo lifestyle - from what the diet is to how to achieve the diet with recipes. It guides the reader step by step through the transition process to living a Paleo life. It provides tips on groceries to buy, what NOT to buy and kitchen equipment to buy that will make your Paleo life a bit easier. Personally, I'm not sure I believe that gluten/grains are bad for all people, but I do know a significant amount of people that are affected by gluten. To get you started, there are 150 recipes included in the book - I was especially excited about the dessert recipes!

    Before opening up this book, I saw the Paleo Diet as involving the eating of rocks or pebbles or maybe just bowls of Fruity Pebbles.  Luckily, I was sorted out with this book's helpful setup of what foods are allowed as part of the diet (almond flour, fresh fruit) and others that are not (couscous, products high in processed sugars), how to seamlessly integrate Paleo foods in your life, and delicious, fresh recipes to try (I was especially surprised at the inclusion of Paleo-friendly Molten Lava Chocolate Cake).

    African Sweet Potato Soup! Pasta made from zucchini ribbons in a luscious fresh tomato sauce! Chicken, pistachio, and fig salad! After reading PALEO FOR BEGINNERS, I realized that I could eat deliciously and well by exchanging my 21st century diet for one "as old as time". You can still enjoy luscious desserts (chocolate mousse! coconut sorbet!) but feel healthy, not heavy, after a meal.  With Paleo for Beginners, anyone can learn the best way to nourish the body and get truly healthy. Loads of great recipes, menus, and shopping lists make this transition much easier than you would think. The reward for eating the Paleo way: feeling and looking really good!

Mimicking the diet by mankind’s pre-processed food forebears, the Paleo diet blasts the follower full of the essential nutrients necessary for a healthy mind and body without the inane chemical additives to increase shelf life. The 150 recipes are a veritable bonus.

    Paleo for Beginners (Sonoma Press) 30-day menus would have drawn Paleolithic man and woman from their caves even in the face of lions and tigers. This book has 150 scrumptious recipes - although you will need time to prepare them. Clear the cooking area of lions. Utilize menus for athletes, special health needs, Shopping Lists and Nutritional Value of Paleo Foods. Gluten is forbidden. There are Ten Steps for Success, a large Glossary and 26 source citations at the end. It's a winner!
