DIET and NUTRITION

The paleo diet consists primarily of foods that have existed before the agricultural revolution. This includes meats, vegetables, fruits, berries, nuts and fish. Paleo Comfort Foods provides paleo versions of classic American dishes that are not typically seen as "caveman" foods. Here are some examples of recipes found in this book:

  • Country curry
  • Spicy chicken wings
  • Sausage balls
  • Chunky guacamole
  • Paleo mayonnaise
  • Coconut flour tortillas
  • Melon gazpacho
  • Fried okra
  • Sweet potato casserole
  • Shrimp and grits
  • Decadent chocolate cake with a kick
  • Peachberry cobbler

It should be noted that the foods that should be included in a paleo diet differ from person to person. Some of these recipes may include ingredients that not all people following a paleo diet eat, such as dark chocolate and honey. However, the majority of the recipes will be suitable for all people following a paleo lifestyle.

EXERCISE

Paleo Comfort Foods is a cookbook and does not focus on fitness recommendations. However, the authors do discuss their personal fitness regimens in the book's introduction. Like many people leading a paleo lifestyle, the Mayfields participate in CrossFit.

CONCLUSION

Paleo Comfort Foods can be a great for anyone who wants to follow a paleo or gluten-free diet without giving up their favorite Southern and American dishes. The instructions are clear and the dishes are fully illustrated with high-quality photography. This book is not a comprehensive guide to the paleo lifestyle, but rather provides creative meal ideas for those who have made the commitment to going paleo.
