With the cold weather approaching, slow cookers are a staple in many households. They make it a convenient, time-saving method to ...make just about anything. Simply put the ingredients in the pot, turn it on to simmer for the day. When you come home from a long day at work, you'll have dinner ready and waiting for you and your family. Just because you're following the Paleo diet doesn't mean you have to give up some of your favorite foods. These recipes are sure to be enjoyed by the whole family, even those picky eaters. They're both healthy and great tasting. They are low-carb, gluten-free and delicious. The biggest benefit of cooking in a crockpot is that you can make a large batch and freeze the leftovers. read more
Practical Paleo is more than just a recipe book. Instead, the book acts as a particularly effective introduction to the paleo diet, offering information and steps about what you can expect from the beginning all the way through. Some of this information may even be new to people who have been following paleo for a while, especially as there is a discussion about gut bacteria and various ways to live a paleo lifestyle effectively.

The author presented the facts logically and the book felt well researched. The recipes were varied and easy to execute. I've looked through a lot of Paleo cookbooks, so it's not often I come across much that is truly unique, but this cookbook had quite a few recipes I hadn't found versions of before! The meals look easy to make and the diet as a whole is presented in such a way that it doesn't feel intimidating. While I do not intend to adopt a complete paleo diet, I do intend to incorporate several of the concepts and make more of the recipes. And I would definitely recommend this book for anyone wanting to start eating paleo or who wants to add more recipes to their diet. I only wish this book came with beautiful color pictures. A cookbook without pictures or with very little pictures is kind of boring to me. First you eat with your eyes, then you eat with your stomach ;)
