Real Food Cookbooks You’ll Love (Paleo, Primal, Fermentation and More)
As you may know, I’ve recently fallen (hard) off the GAPS bandwagon.. but I am feeling the (terrible) effects and I am ready to jump back on. Maybe not legit GAPS, or legit Paleo with a CAPITAL P or whatever, but I feel the need to get back to a more intentional style of eating since I feel my best that way.
Since I’m gonna need some inspiration to climb out of this rut, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite new (or new to me) cookbooks to help me get back on the horse. This list will be helpful to anyone who is new to the Paleo/Primal/Traditional style of eating. Lots of great ideas and drool-worthy inspiration here!
Nothing adds to an already busy life like taking on Paleo. These time-saving books make it seem doable.
Paleo Lunches and Breakfasts on the Go- I’ve had my eye on this one for a while. I get into a scrambled egg rut with my breakfasts and often struggle with new ideas for lunch. This looks like it needs to hit my doorstep.
The Paleo Slow Cooker- The name says it all. Embrace the slow cooker, my friends.
Make Ahead Paleo- Any way to cut down on dinner time prep is good news for me. Now if I could only remember to start things ahead of time..
Paleo Power Lunch- More lunch time expertise. Needing it badly right now.
Beyond Bacon and Carnivore- For my protein-loving friends out there! Beyond Bacon has some killer looking recipes (not to mention great photos) and Carnivore is great if you want to branch out with new preparations or cuts of meat.
Primal Cravings- I love this resource- especially if you are missing foods from the ol’ Standard American Diet.
Gather- This book looks gorgeous and takes the stress out of planning for a gathering, whether you’re the Paleo eater or your guest is.
Los Paleo- You had me at ‘mexican.’ I love this idea!
The Nourished Metabolism- I know this isn’t a cookbook, but it looks like a good read so I wanted to include it. The food we eat and our overall health go hand in hand.
Have any of you tried one of these cookbooks? Any other favorite resources to share? I’m all ears.
Now, which one to read first…
