Which are the best Paleo cookbooks/recipe books? I don't have a lot of money to spend, so I would appreciate recommendations. Thanks!!
I am building my own recipe notebook from recipes I have mostly found on the net. There are many sites with recipes that are specifically paleo, but you can adapt others with substitutions...use butter, etc. The absolute best recipes come from old cookbooks (pre 1960 or earlier). They were using the animal head to tail, not afraid of butter, no processed ingredients, many recipes for game. Shocking difference. Even Joy of Cooking shows you how to skin a squirrel! I pick these up cheap at flea markets when I can. Calf fries anyone?
If you're on a budget, there is a wealth of recipes on the internet to be had for nothing. Start with the following:
www.janssushibar.com (yes, this is a shameless plug for my blog)
There are tons of other excellent paleo/primal/real food blogs out there, and the first two sites will lead you to a great many of them.
I really love Mark Sissons Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals. http://www.amazon.com/Primal-Blueprint-Quick-Easy-Meals/dp/0982207743/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1311731706&sr=1-2
Tons of yummy meals and snacks!
Did I mention they have crap tons of information and recipes that are FREE?
I liked Well Fed, by Melissa Joulwan. The recipes were decent, but her meal planning section was amazing and kind of changed my life. 2 hours of cooking on Sunday to have ten minutes meals all week long? Yes, please!
My library system had a few that I was able to check out. That was a nice way to preview which ones I would most. Or you could take some time at your local Barnes and Noble and browse them. I think B&N will order books in for you without obligation to purchase if it's something they do not normally stock. I've done that before.
I can't believe nobody has mentioned Practical Paleo, Make it Paleo, or Paleo comfort foods? Great resources. Gather looks like it is also pretty good. I haven't bought it yet, but will be soon! Webiste you should have a look at would be nomnompaleo, PaleOMG, Fast Paleo. I have listed my suggested resources here:
I like @Nancy64 am building my own book from screen shots I've taken over a ton of different sites. I also have ones that need converting (those that are good ideas, close to paleo and just need a few tweaks).
Evenutally I'd like to print them out and bind them but for now I have over 700 items from a ton of sites.
Just google 'paleo recipes' 'primal recipes' gluten free, sugar free recipes and you'll get tons! you can subscribe to them and get daily updates of new stuff they've invented!
I love the internet!!
If you are in a budget then you must try this paleo recipe book
This is the best Paleo Diet Cookbook: More than 150 recipes for Paleo Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners, Snacks, and Beverages :)
Hope this will help you.
