Bought this book when I was just getting into Paleo / Whole30. The book's premise is that dinner won't take much more than 30 minutes - perfect for working people I thought. And the recipe titles sound yummy. Only problem is that about 75% of the recipes are for a slow cooker. I'm not sure how that makes them ready for dinner in half an hour unless you cook them all on the weekend and reheat during the week, which is NOT my style.
I think the author assumes you will leave the crock pot on all day and come home to a cooked meal, but it is unsafe to leave an electronic appliance on and unsupervised all day. She also proposes that you shop one day of the weekend, and spend time preparing and cooking the next. Nice idea if you have no other weekend commitments. Even so, you'd need more than one crock pot to make up sufficient meals for the week, and several different size ones at that based on her recipes. I wish the author had included alternate stove top cooking methods for most of the crock pot recipes; as an experienced cook, I can probably figure it out for myself but that's just more work for me. So, if you are home all day, and like to use your crock pot, I think these recipes would be great! Otherwise, choose a different cookbook. Beware also that several of the recipes call for dairy; in one case, almond yogurt. There was no explanation so I don't know if it referred to Paleo yogurt made from almonds, or almond flavored dairy yogurt. While I still plan to try some of the recipes, I was disappointed by the book overall.
