Paleo Foods for Busy People, The 30-day Paleo Diet Challenge

Diet is a 4-letter word. Especially to author Emma Powell. Her goal in writing the cookbook was to “redefine the word ‘diet,’ returning to Imagea more traditional definition and use of the word.”

Diets are not simply a method to shed unwanted weight. They are not about restriction. The word Diet, to Ms. Powell, is all about lifestyle and the type of food.

The Paleolithic diet, she asserts is the one that humans are most attuned to—one of whole, unprocessed foods. The list of unrestricted foods and those allowed in moderation (including caffeinated beverages) is longer than the foods excluded from the Paleo diet.

The book comes complete with a 30-day meal plan—recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two or more including pancakes (using coconut and almond flour), pulled pork, stir fry, salads and smoothies galore.

I have not yet used an e-cookbook, and was interested to see how it worked. It’s going to be more difficult to flip through the pages, but as the recipes are part of a meal plan rather than a collection of recipes, I am not anticipating a problem.

The pictures included in the book, which are of high-quality and professionally-produced are enticing in black and white on the Kindle and simply mouth-watering in color on the Kindle app on my tablet.

Don’t get me wrong, I love me my pasta, rice, and bread, but the 30 days of recipes included in the book sound good enough to at least give the Paleo diet a try.

Now, I just need to go out and get a good blender.
