DIET and NUTRITION

Eat Like a Dinosaur is based on the paleo diet and is written in a way that the youngest members of your family will understand. The recipes for main dishes, side dishes, dips and sauces, snacks, and special treats provide healthful family-friendly meals that even your kids can help prepare. One of the most popular recipes are the Eat Like a Dinosaur Waffles!

You will be surprised what all can still be eaten with a few alterations in preparation. The book is very allergy-friendly, and alerts readers to where allergens may be included in the recipe, but does stay away from the four most common allergies, which are dairy, wheat, peanuts, and soy.

Finally, the book includes chapters on packing lunch and fun food projects.

EXERCISE

Fitness is not addressed in this book, but it is mentioned on their blog at PaleoParents.com.

CONCLUSION

Some people can be quite skeptical about the transition to a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. This book is a fun read that you'll easily want to flip through in a day and you'll be left eager to both try some of the recipes and to use the story with kids. We appreciate the idea of eating like a dinosaur as a way to explain food choices to children. This could easily become a frequently sourced book for families and that will easily be recommended often. Eat Like a Dinosaur is a user-friendly book with appealing illustrations and helpful resources for families going gluten-free, paleo, or managing food allergies.
