Practical Paleo Book Review!

Hey fellow Paleo followers. If you are anything like me, you struggle to keep your menus exciting while eating Paleo. Even as a creative recipe inventor myself, I still end up stumped on what to eat sometimes.  One of the perks of the book-writing process has been taking a minute to really look at many other Paleo cookbooks. At first I was scared to crack the covers and find recipes that were similar to mine, but I was soon freed of this fear and excited to share some of my new-found Paleo cookbook love. I am going to try to review them and share more often!

The first book I am reviewing is Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo. This is a New York Times best seller so I would be surprised if many of my followers haven't heard of it. Just because you have seen it on Amazon doesn't mean you have any idea about what's inside. One of the highlights of Diane's book is how she walks you through what Paleo is and all of the health conditions if can have a positive effect on, from autoimmune conditions to thyroid health. It is extremely informative, well organized, and creatively laid out with illustrations. This section is perfect for any Paleo person, or even someone that wants to be re-inspired to live a strictly Paleo life.

Now for the the food section of the book! It makes up about half of the book. The photos are nice and in many cases help show the steps of making the dish. The spice blend section is one of my favorites! Learning how to mix your own spices is essential on this diet and can be the key to getting creative in the kitchen. It also frees you of buying pre-mixed spices that can be loaded with sodium! I think a lot of the recipes are on the simpler side-- in a good way! They seem easy to prepare and good staples for daily life eating. I think the best way to review a book is to jump right in and get cooking! I decided to make the Lemon and Artichoke Chicken. I used chicken thighs since that is what I prefer, and the dish turned out delicious  The chicken was moist, and the flavor was tasty and subtle. I think you could serve the dish to picky eaters and children and still have them dig in. My favorite part is that I threw it together in minutes! I think the 10 minute of prep time was a generous estimate that I delighted in.

I think this book is a great resource for information as well as for basic recipes! Great job Diane and I look forward to seeing what she comes up with in the 21-Day-Sugar-Detox Cook Book!!!
