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.
