Primal Blueprint Cookbook – a review

primal blueprint cookbook

UPDATE: September 2practical paleo

I’ve “looked through” Practical Paleo (pictured below). I LOVE this book. The resource lists are amazing. While writing my notes I wished that some of the information sheets were “pull-outs”. Guess what, this book has them. There in the back and completely perforated. You will not be disappointed in this book and will probably learn a thing or two.

In fact, I’m looking into FODMAPs and this book shows which foods in their recipes include FODMAPs!

Practical Paleo includes 30-day meal plans designed to support…
* autoimmune conditions
* digestive health
* blood-sugar regulation
* thyroid health,
* cancer recover
* heart health
* parkinson’s ^ alzheimer’s”
* fat loss
* athletic performance and
* general health & more…

———— NOW, getting on with the Primal Blueprint Cookbook Review———–

From the inside Practical Paleo cookbook

The popularity of the low carb/paleo/Primal lifestyles has exploded as people discover an appealing and sustainable alternative to the restrictive diets and flawed conventional wisdom that lead to burnout and failed weight loss efforts.

I am not investigating this way of eating to lose weight…I’m trying to eat healthier…especially in light of my intestinal distress and chronic fatigue. Primal Blueprint seems to be part of a reasonable solution for me.

I really like this cookbook. It has lots of pictures and doesn’t put on “aires”. There are several recipes I cannot make for myself because of my IBS-restricted guidelines. But looking at all the little slips of paper sticking out of the book (marking recipes I want to make) tells me that this book is a keeper. It even has sauce recipes like ranch dressing, mayonnaise, ketchup and BBQ sauce!

I just looked through the Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals cookbook. You’re supposed to be able to make these recipes in under 30 minutes. This cookbook doesn’t make my mouth water like the Primal Blueprint Blueprint did. I scanned this book in a flash, marking very few recipes. Who knows, you might feel differently. Just because I’m a meat and potatoes kinda gal, doesn’t mean you are.

primal cravingspractical paleoI am so glad I can “preview” cookbooks by getting them through my local library. I also go into Barnes & Noble and look at their books if I cannot get them through the library. That’s how I found two cookbooks I cannot wait to open up and cook from. They are Primal Cravings: Your favorite foods made paleo by Keatley (approved by Sisson Publishing! and Practical Paleo by Sanfilippo (Nutritionist).

Some may believe these cookbooks are better than the Primal Blueprint Cookbook. That’s okay. You’re entitled to be wrong πŸ™‚

Happy cooking :0

    have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually
    it’s triggered by the fire communicated in the article
    I looked at. And after this post Primal Blueprint Cookbook –
    a review | Padme’s Cupboard. I was actually excited enough to drop a comment :
    -P I do hhave a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.

    Is it only me or do a few of the comments appear like coming from brain dead visitors?
