The paleo diet is way of eating that focuses on foods that existed before the agricultural revolution. This is consists primarily of meats, fish, vegetables and berries, in addition to some nuts and fruits. Make it Paleo offers a range of recipes that have been adapted to fit these requirements. Below is a list of some of the recipes found in this book. To avoid refined grains, this book often uses almond or coconut as substitutes.

  • Root vegetable hash and poached egg
  • Egg muffins
  • Pan-seared artichoke hearts
  • Chinese spiced ribs
  • Rosemary roasted turkey
  • Asian steak salad
  • Mashed turnips and parsnips
  • Coconut macaroons

It should be noted that the foods that should be included in a paleo diet differ from individual to individual. Some of these recipes may include ingredients that not everyone following a paleo diet eat, such as maple syrup, baking chocolate and gelatin. However, by far and wide these recipes will be suitable for everyone following a paleo lifestyle.

EXERCISE

CONCLUSION

Make it Paleo is first and foremost a cookbook, so anyone who is new to the paleo diet would do get a more compressive explanation of the diet elsewhere. The recipes themselves are easy to follow and beautifully illustrated, and the introduction does provide helpful information about choosing ingredients and setting up a plaeo kitchen. Make it Paleo a great place for anyone paleo or gluten-free to find fresh cooking inspiration.
