I did not even know about a free paleo book link. I also have found tons of free paleo books for the kindle. I have not had a chance to weed through them and take what I want/need from each but one of these days I will tackle that project. I think I am at the point where I want a little adventure in my cooking and not the normal pork chop or steak, same tired veggies and fruit. I want to kick it up a notch and that is what I am looking at in new books.

I got a link called "Free Paleo Books", but when I clicked on it was told there was no longer any such thread. Anyone know what happened to it?

I have found a whole lot of free Paleo books through my "free books" app on my kindle. And, there are lots more free ones if a person checks around the amazon site.

I love "It all starts with food"! emoticon Has anyone else noticed better sleep patterns/fewer allergies on the paleo diet? I have to admit, I do eat cheese once in a while:)

Diane is amazing. I stumbled on the Balanced Bites podcast (with Liz Wolfe too) and fell in love; they inspired me to finally go paleo. I would recommend her to anyone!!!

The Paleo Diet by Dr. Cordain is an excellent resource on Paleo eating. I read almost the entire book while I was have my hair done. I later purchased the Kindle edition and reread it and I continue to refer to it. I downloaded some free books from Kindle: Paleo Power and Top 40 Paleo Recipes. These books are okay, but the one of them contains too many recipes for "baked" goods. I have been debating with myself about purchasing the 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking. I could not decide if I wanted to spend the money for a hard copy or for the Kindle addition. I like that the book has an eating plan and guide that is very specific. Today however, I was in the book store and say Practical Paleo. It actually cost more than the other book, but I was very impressed with content and I made the purchase. I look forward to using it.

Read God's Word the Bible Daily.

My nutritional therapist suggested Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfillipo. It has menu plans and recipes as well as going over Paleo lifestyle. Out of all the books and blogs that I have or have read, this book is my go to. It also discusses health issues. It is not free but it is well worth the price.

Man- I wish I had found this thread a while ago. Our family is getting cookbooks for each other and I didn't know which to get. What is your favorite cookbook you actually use?
My story, if you don't mind... My husband is a grain farmer so we don't forbid all grain- I personally stay away from gluten but sometimes cook it for the family. I need good paleo/primal recipes that are tasty, somewhat quick and something my family will eat. Any suggestions - websites, cookbooks?

Hi everyone,

wanted to share beside where else you can find FREE Paleo books besides Amazon Kindle.

www.scribd.com/
I have been a member for years.

It's free to join ~ it also has smartphone apps. You can search for the FREE stuff - and I found alot when I searched on PALEO that people have uploaded to this site. You can add these to your library. You can download in .PDF and/or text or print but they require that you share (upload) a document that you created or maybe you downloaded a free PDF (like a cookbook or something) from another site. Anyway they have FAQs. I was able to download alot before they started the popups to ask for me to upload something.

For those of you who like to entertain, or just want to cook delicious food for your families, I cannot recommend 'Gather' enough. I love to cook, but most cookbooks are in no way geared towards a paleo/primal lifestyle, and sometimes it's nice to be able to follow a recipe for something interesting, rather than make substitutions to make something paleo/primal and not quite know how it will turn out. Gather has full menus for different types of, well, gatherings. Plus, it's beautifully shot, so just looking at the pictures makes me happy :)

Great book explaining why a paleo diet should work for weight loss and : Escape the Diet Trap by Dr. John Briffa from the UK. Has anyone read this?
I am gluten-free due to celiac. therefore, the big culprits, wheat, rye, and barley have been long eliminated. I am having trouble eliminating oats and rice and legumes.(It may be an ethnic thing). I have cut back, though. Briffa says it is OK to eat some of them if you keep your non-paleo consumption to under 20%. Can't do this though, without keeping a diary(Sparkpeople).

A while back there was a big sale on e-books by Paleo Authors for $39.
I got those, plus a few others.

It's great to have them electronically, but I also like to have physical books for the appeal of just sitting with them and reading them like any other book.

I have made many things from Civilized Caveman Book

I just got

Practical Paleo

and

Against all Grain

Unfortunately, I loaned the first one to someone, so I'll have to wait to jump into that with both feet.

Two of the books I ordered have arrived and I can start reading. I have received The Primal Blueprint and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Eating Paleo. I also picked up a couple of other books from a used book store.

I have decided to follow the Paleo program, it will be hard, since my body craves the carbs. I'll be taking it one step at a time. Bought a few Robb Wolf's books.

Thanks for your post Birgit. Robb Wolf mentioned A1 and A2 actually in terms of the different types of cows on one of his podcast, but he didn't go into too much detail about it. Very interesting, I will be reading more about this.

I found it to be inspiring and a reality check for me. I'm not an alcohol or drug addict, but I do have food addiction issues and have come to accept that gluten is a trigger for me. A little bit of gluten containing food makes a whole list of other junk food SOO much more appealing.

I finally got the chance to look at this thread and it's wonderful. emoticon

I want to add "Devil in the milk" by Keith Woodford that talks about the difference between A1 and A2 dairy and this might mean that some people who thought they could not handle dairy can actually handle A2 but not A1.

I am starting all over again, with internet access to Spark people to help me food track and stay focused. This is a great thread. Just wanted to add that Elena Amsterdam has a Paleo cookbook coming out you can pre-order half price Amazon. I ordered it sight unseen because she is great. I also found a baking book thats Paleo for special ocassions- using nut flours, and low/no sugar. The Joy of Gluten Free Sugar Free Baking: 80 low carb recipes that offer solutions for Celiac Disease, Diabetes and Weight Loss. There are more like this on amazon using coconut flour, but thats not where my focus is.

I found nomnompaleo.com and theclothesmakethegirl.com to be such great websites I bought the Nom Nom cookbook app and Well Fed Paleo. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them both! I actually got Well Fed in a "kit" like this one that she is promoting now. Got the Paleo Crock Pot one as well and have enjoyed making a few of the dishes including his BBQ sauce which is fabulous.

Oh, and Paleo Magazine is a wonderful resource. It is included in this pack but wasn't in mine. Had to find that on my own! :)

If you haven't bought these books yet you might want to check out the link. Seems like they do this every few months. Got mine about 3 months back - different set of items but the main ones are the same.

Practical Paleo is one of my top fave books so far. Lots of delicious recipes and I love the various menu plans for different needs (ie, heart health, neurological, fat loss, etc). Great photos and its easy to understand.

I am new to Paleo lifestyle but I think this book is AWESOME -
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Dr. Mary Enig.

www.amazon.com/Nourishing-Traditions
-C
hallenges-Politically-Dictocrats/dp/R>0967089735


It breaks down principles of clean, back to basic living with the science behind it.
It has lots of recipes and tons of useful information in separate chapters and along the sides of the recipes. I haven't finished it yet but every time I pick it up, I see life differently, I see food differently. For me, hands down best book.

There is a companion book --

The Fourfold Path to Healing: Working with the Laws of Nutrition, Therapeutics, Movement and Meditation in the Art of Medicine

www.amazon.com/The-Fourfold-Path-Hea
li
ng-Therapeutics/dp/0967089794/ref=pdR>_bxgy_b_text_z


This is great because it gives you plans for specific illnesses/situations.

I also have Practical Paleo: It is a great book, lots of useful information in a colorful easy to reference presentable way.

I keep flipping back and forth between Practical Paleo, Nourishing Traditions, Primal Body, Primal Mind and, Eat Fat, Lose Fat. I am still learning but all of these books have changed my life.

Friends have recommended the paleo diet to me and I figured, why not - at this point, I want something that works for my weight loss! there are a number of great blogs out there (nom nom paleo for one) but they can be a bit overwhelming. To start with the basics about paleo and weightloss, I've found this to be a good "beginner's" guide to paleo that has some yummy recipes if you are interested:

A book I definitely want to re-read now is "Why You are Fat and What To Do About It." He had a lot of good info in there - a bit over written but now that we have been living paleo for 3 months want to re-visit and see what I missed

I agree Janet - Paleoista was a little boring but I felt like it was light enough for those who just want to try being Paleo without knowing the why of it.

And thanks Steph! I agree, sometimes I re-read my own reviews to recall things. I might even re-read the book Paleo Diet for Athletes since that was the first one and now I know much more about the whole lifestyle. It would probably make much more sense to me the second time around!

I didn't even know this thread was here! I've written reviews on a bunch of Paleo Books but just today, I wrote a review on Practical Paleo. It also has links to my reviews on It Starts With Food, The Paleo Solution, Paleoista, and The Paleo Diet for Athletes. Would love it if you checked it out and left some comments!!

The best source I have found for reintroduction of foods is the Whole30 website but, yes, there's a section of It Starts With Food that talks about life after your Whole30. It's a great book!!!

I am reading Practical Paleo now. I was able to borrow from the library. I have read The Paleo Diet, the Wheat Belly and Paleo Diet for Athletes but so far, Practical Paleo and Why you are Fat are my two favourites. I also saw Everyday Paleo at Costco and it looks to be good and may be worth buying as our library does not carry it.

I finished reading Practical Paleo today. What a great book! The first half is full of soo much information. Information on the Paleo diet, how our digestive system works and information on digestive issues. Then on top of that there are 30 day meal plans to start you out. The second half of the book is recipes. I haven't tried anything yet. Since I am new to Paleo I am going to try one of the meal plans provided in the book. I definitely recommend this book to anyone new to the Paleo diet.

Perfect Health Diet, 2nd Edition

Mark Sisson of Primal Blueprint wrote a fantastic Forward for the new book. Some are saying it is "Paleo Perfected" It is an updated, accessible, tastier version of Paleo, which hopes to play a big part in the continued migration of ancestral diets into the public consciousness.

I love the new book. It (well the first one and now the second one) has made a huge difference in my journey. emoticon

I got Everyday Paleo for Christmas a year ago, and I heartily recommend it. I've used it so much that the binding is coming loose!

Just recently I got Practical Paleo, and I love the information she gives in the first half of the book. I haven't tried many recipes from it yet, but what I have made turned out really good. It gets a thumbs up from me so far. Some of the recipes seem to be a little ambitious, at least to me, but worth a try.

I also like Paleo Comfort Foods. It has a great recipe for "Farmer's Pie" (think Shepherd's Pie minus the white potato topping) and mashed cauliflower.

Boyfriend got me a paleo crock pot book and a paleo desserts book for Christmas. Looking forward to trying those soon!

Check out the "Everythingbuttheclothes" website for a Tandoori chicken recipe.
Also love the Everyday Paleo cookbook ...great family recipes...just tried the Mexican slowcooker stew...phenomenal.

There are a few good GF/paleo-ish cookie recipes...unfortunately I lost my link to the recipe..arghh

It included almond meal for which I substituted ground Hazelnuts ..

I got Paleoista from the library - gad I didn't buy it~! Not a bad read but definitely written by a "Frist Shade of Paleo" as noted in Rob Wolf's piece http://robbwolf.com/2012/10/24/shades-pale
o. I really don't need to be told "Cage Free Omega 3 Eggs" everytime the word eggs is written. I found very holier than thou- I find on Paleo you must make changes and sometimes you do the best you can when selecting food. Can't always afford to buy the organic variety. Maybe write from the point of view of fixed incomes rather than cost is no object.

After reading the reviews here - looking forward to finding Well Fed and reading it. Seems like everyone here who read it loves it.
Has anyone read Paleoista. Only one review on Amazon and I hate to waste money if it is not a good book. I admit I have not read any of the Paleo books yet - just the book Why We Get Fat and What to do About It. A little boring as he seems to repeat and repeat to make his point but overall if you can get beyond that the principles make sense.

I have read both of Cordain's books. To be honest, I read them backwards. I read the answer first and found it to be pretty good. I do think Cordain is a bit dry in his writing style. Typical of academic writers. His second book, clears up some stuff he glossed over and has since changed his mind on based on the recent research.

My favorite book "for info" is The Paleo Solution, by Robb Wolf. It is by far the best written of all of ones I've read. Robb is honest, brutal and too the point.

The Complete Idiots Guide to Eating Paleo - bought on my Nook. Don't recall it being as expensive as other Idiots Guides.

I like it a lot. Uh- Wow. My book report skills have gone out the tubes..... The book seems thorough, practical, well organized, and reading it online/on Nook it's easy to jump to other sections via the table of contents or bookmarks. It's an easy-read, I've been moving through it easily and found it informative and a rational way of eating. It backs up claims with sound-sounding rationale. I don't know what else to say about it- I haven't finished it. But yes, I would readily recommend it.

Looks like Paleo Indulgences may have to be my next cookbook! I won't make the mistake of getting it on my Kindle though. I much prefer a beautiful cookbook. I just got the Paleo Crock Pot Cooking and plan on making some stuff from it this week. I would love to try those onion rings!

I find that Indian food is gluten free except for a few obvious exceptions. When I go to a buffet, the Tandoori chicken seems like the best option. Wish I had a home recipe. If I rub cuury on a chicken and crockpot it, it doesn't come close. Any ideas. There was a recipe for Tandoori Turkey that uses a cooking bag, has anyone tried that?

I am making the Well Fed Moroccan Spice rub on page 47 and my cook up will be the chicken over cauliflower rice with onions and lemon peel..and I take a mini red potato and dice it up in there, maybe add an egg to it.

I may also try the chocolate cauliflower. Waiting for a cold day to turn on the oven.

I love when I open a cookbook and realize, the ingredients are in my fridge!

I have have some gluten free books that are Paleo too- Elana Amsterdam uses almond flour and coconut flour in her baked goods. Paleo Comfort foods is my first real Paleo cookbook. I have another on my notebook "kindle" , but I never look at it. Hate kindle. I just ordered Well Fed. There is a version of Weight Watchers that kinda sorta resembles Paleo. You don't really need a cookbook for it although since I LOVE cookbooks, I had to have one.

Well Fed is amazing! I bought it a few weeks ago for my Kindle. My boyfriend, who rarely says he "loves" any food, could not get enough of the Moroccan Meatballs. I absolutely love the Eggplant Strata.

This week, I ordered a copy of Practical Paleo. It is by far the best Paleo book/cookbook I have read. The information at the beginning on how food affects our bodies is amazing. My boyfriend, who also is a Paleo skeptic, read a bit of the intro and said that he now gets why I believe in Paleo and paying more for our food. I also sent a copy to my mom, who called me immediately to say she was blown away by the book. It's on sale on Amazon now and worth every last penny.

I just finished a Whole30 and it was pretty much a non-experience. No problems cutting out the sweeteners, dairy and bit of soy I usually eat. No bad detoxing problems. No change for the worse or the better throughout the whole 33 days. Little change in weight or inches. Then I went on vacation, and while I stayed Whole30 as best I could, I had little control over what might have been in restaurant food (things cooked in canola oil, sugar in the bacon, etc.). I'm back on Whole30 for a couple of weeks and then I'll try adding back the dairy and sweeteners and see whether I see a difference that way.

A Whole30 is a great place to start. I did one in April and had no problems but then started another 8/1 and ended up ending it around 8/20. I was moving my son off to college, business got crazy and I was visiting my brother's family who eats Paleo but not Whole30 so it just seemed a bit much. Honestly, for me it wasn't that different than how I usually eat other than I do eat cottage cheese and full fat greek yogurt. I do love an occasional small glass of red wine with a couple squares of dark chocolate. Other than that I am pretty Whole30 at least 95% of the time (those listed being the 5%). You might be surprised what you find out about yourself. To me, that's the biggest plus of a Whole30. All of a sudden, you think you had been feeling pretty good and you realize how amazing you CAN feel. Good luck!

I attempted a Whole 30 at the beginning of the year, the first week I felt AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tired, super cranky, just plain out of it. The second week I felt as good as I had felt bad the previous week. Sadly, I wasn't as committed as I should have been-at the end of the second week I caved and ate something I shouldn't have. It was not easy and looking back, I didn't plan well. But, considering how awesome I felt for that week, I definitely feel it's worth it.

I'm looking forward to doing another one soon. "It Starts with Food" is a great resource, I'm completely convinced that following the guidelines in there would help anyone be successful at it.

I'll make it to the moon if I have to crawl.

I picked up Everyday Paleo at Costco yesterday - I really like her site. I ordered Practical Paleo online - it should be here any day now. I've been on this diet for one week and am loving it so far. I have more energy and I feel better. I'm thinking I may have some sort of gluten sensitivity. My son is Celiac.

Picked up Practical Paleo yesterday. While I'm a little miffed that ALL of the recipes are available for free in her blog (the nutrition info has the breakdown of each ingredient)....the pictures, and the other information make the book worth it.

The photos of the food and the other information about different types of ailments with tailored plans is great. I'm very pleased with the purchase all in all!

And as said in many reviews...the poop pageant is hilarious!
