Book Description

July 15 2010 Primal Blueprint Series
The popularity of the low carb/paleo/Primal way of eating has exploded, as people discover an appealing and sustainable alternative to the restrictive diets and flawed conventional wisdom that lead to burnout and failed weight loss efforts. Until now, high-quality cookbooks written for this growing community simply haven't existed. The dream of eating satisfying meals--even on a budget--controlling weight and feeling great has now become a reality. Make your transition to Primal eating easy and fun with this innovative cookbook from Primal Blueprint author Mark Sisson, and acclaimed chef/food writer/photographer Jennifer Meier. Included are over 100 mouth-watering recipes with easy-to-follow instructions and nearly 400 brilliant, glossy, full-color photographs to guide and inspire you to cooking and eating Primally.  Save time with intuitive recipe steps, easy navigation, and great visual support. Find recipes quickly in the following categories: Meat, Offal, Fowl, Seafood, Vegetables, Eggs, Primal Substitutes, Marinades, Sauces and Dressings, Desserts, Beverages.  As detailed in the Primal Blueprint, losing excess body fat is all about insulin. Regulate insulin production by eliminating grains and sugars and you will lose weight, even if you don't exercise much or are cursed with the fat gene. Easier said than done, right? Well, the Primal Blueprint cookbook shows you how to transition from great American grain-based diet to a Primal Blueprint diet featuring meat, seafood, fowl, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. All of these Primal recipes have a naturally low glycemic impact, keeping your insulin levels--and thus your waistline--in check.  As you build momentum for Primal eating, you'll find that you won't even miss the bland, boring, low-fat foods that previously were the central focus of your diet. How can you argue with a menu that includes Roasted Leg of Lamb with Herbs and Garlic, Salmon Chowder with Coconut Milk, Tomatoes Stuffed with Ground Bison and Eggs, and Baked Chocolate Custard? This isn't a crash course diet. These and the other Primal recipes provide the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating, high energy and protection from common health problems that arise from eating SAD (Standard American Diet).

4.0 out of 5 stars some new ideas, a bit of a mix of everything Aug. 1 2010
By C. Mack
I've been primal for 2 months now and bought the cookbook to get some new ideas for meals and I'm glad I've bought it - there are some interesting recipes in there. I'm a little disappointed - the recipes seem to be a total mix from all sorts of different contributors, so there's no real consistency in the quality of the recipes. Some are just plain bland and bad. If you're already handy in the kitchen you might be better off just using a regular cookbook and substituting.

Where this book does come in really handy is the primal substitute category and dessert category - there are things in there I would never have thought of making in a hundred years. I've only tried a couple, they were both good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start for a Primal Cook Book July 11 2010
By Lucy001
I have made a few recipes from this book already and really enjoyed them. At times, they recommend getting meat or products that are not available in my region or grocery stores, but most of the recipes are fairly easy. I would like more variety for vegetables and salads, but overall it is a good book and hopefully one day it will be expanded.

I recommend this book to anyone who has special diet needs, that fact that I lost 12Lbs in a month without even trying surprised me. My energy levels and general well being has improved as well.

This is the first paleo/primal cookbook I ever bought when I was first transitioning into this way of eating, about three years ago. I've bought many paleo cookbooks since, but this is by far the one that has been the most useful to me. I hardly knew how to cook when I first started the primal way of eating (at 19 years old), and this book was extremely useful for learning some basics about cooking meats, roasts, and vegetables. To me, this cookbook is worth it for the pot roast recipe alone; it is my absolute favourite way to eat cheap chuck roast. The chili recipe is really great, too; I've cooked it several times, changing it as time goes on. Even the simple creamed kale recipe was quite valuable to a beginner like me, as I had never even heard of kale before going paleo; now, I love it. Same goes for the mashed parsnips.

It's not as slick and beautifully photographed as many of the newer paleo cookbooks, but it makes up for that by having a lot of solid recipes that work; it is also nice that there is a photo for every recipe, which is a big deal to me for cookbooks. I haven't made some of the baked goods/substitutes that are featured in the cookbook (pancakes, bars, etc), so I can't really comment on those. That section isn't very big anyway, so I wouldn't get this cookbook hoping for a lot of substitutes for grain-based treats like bread and cupcakes; there are other paleo and grain-free cookbooks that focus on those things.

Overall, I recommend this cookbook to those just starting out with paleo/primal, and especially those that don't have very much cooking experience; for a beginner cook, it's hard to beat the simplicity of a lot of the recipes, as well as the detailed instructions and tasty results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously Delicious! Sept. 23 2013
By Tabatha
Format:Kindle Edition
We have tried at least a dozen recipes in this cookbook, each and everyone have turned out ridiculously delicious! This evening we had the Transylvanian Stockpot which was out of this world -- no salt added or needed even though I put it on the table. The Pumpkin Nut Muffins are easy to make and fantastic! I wish we could procure bison but it's just not available in our area. The Coconut Curry is also highly recommended as is the Zucchini Egg Bake. Seriously the recipes in this book turn out perfect every time!!

This cookbook had lots of new and interesting recipes to try when stuck for meal ideas. It also gave me ideas to use when changing my own favourite meals. Really helped me when beginning the Primal eating.
