If you read any of the forums online that discuss paleo cookbook recommendations, you’ll quickly discover that the most commonly mentioned book is The Primal Diet by Mark Sisson.
There’s a good reason for this. Mark Sisson created more than just a diet when he wrote it; he created a lifestyle, and for most paleo dieters, that what it is, a lifestyle choice. It’s not something that they do for a few weeks or even a few months. When they see the benefits of paleo eating, it becomes a permanent lifestyle choice.
He based his diet on the evolutionary habits of both historical and contemporary hunter-gatherers, and applies those diets to our modern lives. What you eat in nature, you eat in his diet, and it’s not as hard as you’d think to do.
In The Primal Blueprint, Mark advocates eating meats (even organs), seafood, eggs, nuts, lots of vegetables and fruit. He suggests avoiding grains, legumes, dairy, all processed foods and limiting carbohydrates to less than 150 grams per day.
He also gives advice for nutritional supplementation, exercise, sleep and stress management.
After publishing The Primal Blueprint, Mark followed up with the incredibly handy The Primal Blueprint Cookbook, which is a must-have for anyone following a paleo-esque diet. Not only does it have a section on primal substitutes for your favorite non-paleo recipes (which is awesome), but there are sections for beverage recipes, dessert recipes and even a section on offal! For those non-foodies, offal are animal organs -liver, kidneys, brains etc.
Whether you’re new to primal dieting or a seasoned vet and just looking for some new paleo cookbooks, definitely check out The Primal Blueprint series by Mark Sisson, which is available in both book and Kindle form from Amazon. You can get the links below.
