Overview

A well seasoned steak, eggs, dark chocolate, and apples can really hit the spot. But sometimes, we could really go for Chili Pie, Benedict Deviled Eggs, Thin Mint Cookies, and Apple Pie. Even the most disciplined and willful among us can become bored and wayward on a routine of bland, repetitive meals. Humans naturally crave delicious food, interesting cuisine and variety.

 

Primal Cravings sets out to provide the best of both worlds – the food to satiate our deep seated, visceral urges made with ingredients that satisfy our ancient, genetic needs for good health. This cookbook contains 125 Primal/Paleo recipes, and also includes bonus features that detail the authors’ thoughts of the tenets of a Primal/Paleo diet and the mentality of a flexible, healthy eating lifestyle to show you how vibrant health can be found without sacrificing great taste.

 

Based in South Carolina, authors Brandon and Megan Keatley created Primal Cravings on the momentum of their popular Health-Bent.com website – a treasure trove of Primal/Paleo recipes, workout tips and motivational messages. These kitchen whizzes and expert-level fitness coaches present Primal Cravings after several years of research, experimentation and perfecting recipes in their home kitchen. Primal Cravings presents the recipes in a simple, clear, easy-to-navigate format, and offers a detailed macronutrient analysis of each preparation. Knowing time is the most valuable resource, they also provide primers on ingredients, tools, and stocking your kitchen, and offer menu suggestions for a variety of occasions and considerations (quick, budget, feeding a crowd).

 

With Primal Cravings, you can enjoy assorted breakfasts, meat and main dishes, sides and salads, snacks, sweets and basics like bread, sauces, and dressings that adhere to Primal/Paleo guidelines. Inside you’ll find 100% low-sugar, grain-free, gluten-free, industrial oil-free recipes all accompanied by full color photos. Pioneering new gluten/grain free baking techniques for Primal Cravings, the Keatleys show you how to make the best Primal treats you’ve ever had. If you’ve been missing or looking for healthy, innovative ways to make things from All-American fare like breakfast egg dishes, waffles and pancakes, muffins, burgers, chili, pizza, chips, baked goods (cakes, pies, cookies, crackers, brownies) and frozen desserts to global cuisine like gyros, spanakopita, moo shu, barbacoa, tacos, tikka masala and other favorites – then this is the book for you.

Great recipes, every day stuff. I give content 5 stars but nook formatting is bad on salad dressing page. I expect more from Nook.

One of the only Paleo books I found worth spending my money on.  I am a true lover of cook books, and this book has beautiful pictures included with all the recipes.  The hard cover book was what sold me.  I ended up buying the nook version, and each recipe I have prepared has come out great.  It's a great cookbook with easy to use/find ingredients.  I agree with their philosophy toward eating, as we all have to find what works for us as individuals.  The one recipe that didn't last longer than 5 minutes in my household full of kids ranging from 10-18 was the deviled eggs made with butter .  They got devoured, and everyone was happy!

My favorite Cookbook! The recipes in this cookbook are easy to follow with great results. My family has liked everything I have made and we have found some new favorites. The ingredients are easy to find and don't require a trip to amazon or some other site, Thank You!

I have tried several of the recipes in this book and they are Awesome!!! To those who will argue that it is not *true* paleo due to the inclusion of tapioca and potato flours: adapt the recipes using coconut and almond flour. It's about making better choices. Excellent, excellent book. Try the no bake granola bars and the coconut shrimp cakes. Yum!!!

A great guide for those new to paleo, or experienced with a primal/paleo lifestyle. The introduction is a great how to guide, including a helpful outline on meats, produces and even what to stock your pantry with. The recipes are easy, and most of all tasty. I've been following the Keatly's blog and this book outshines what's on their website. For those new to paleo or those already on board, I have to say this is a great book that would be a great first addition to your paleo library, even just for the All American Burger on the cover.
