This is a great cookbook for those making the transition to a Paleo lifestyle. While the author does offer a 4 week menu plan, this isn’t a diet book. She just offers recipes of tasty food that follows the Paleo lifestyle and encourages clean, processed-free eating. I like many things about this cookbook including way it is organized, the mouthwatering photographs of the finished meal, and the meal plans and shopping lists to make your transition to the Paleo lifestyle easier. Amy also has an extensive section on herbs and spices that I found very enlightening. I think this is a perfect cookbook for Paleo novices and their families. The recipes are appetizing and aren’t too “out there”, which is great when cooking for kids or non-Paleo eating spouses. Yet it also has recipes that even the seasoned Paleo cook will find refreshing. It is a must-have for your cookbook collection!
