The Paleo movement is one of the hottest diet and healthy-eating approaches, as people discover an appealing and sustainable alternative to the restrictive diets that lead to burnout and failed weight loss efforts. This modern-day take on an ancient diet--which excludes dairy, processed foods, and refined sugar--has helped thousands of people lose weight and keep it off. Now, "The Paleo Cookbook For Dummies" offers more than 100 simple and tasty Paleo recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, and even beverages.Includes an overview of the Paleo Diet, grocery shopping and pantry stocking tips, and kid-friendly Paleo recipes. Offers Paleo recipes for every meal of the day. All recipes are contributed by powerhouse Paleo chefs. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts:

This sounded interesting, both as a healthy way of eating and a possible weight-loss diet. Unfortunately, we must be really picky eaters as I couldn't find a single recipe in this book that my family would enjoy. Very disappointing.

Like most For Dummies guides, this book is laid out well. Part 1 explains the Paleo lifestyle, how to stock your kitchen, and how to start the diet. The rest of the book is full of recipes, broken down into soups, salads, snacks, main dishes, sides, and desserts. There's even a section for slow cookers and kid-friendly dishes! Too bad I couldn't find anything for my picky family.

While this wasn't the right book for us, I'm sure that others would benefit from the recipes and lifestyle suggestions!
