Enhance your purchase
Nom Nom Paleo is a visual feast, crackling with humor and packed with stunningly photographed step-by-step recipes free of gluten, soy, and added sugar. Designed to inspire the whole family to chow down on healthy, home-cooked meals, this cookbook compiles over 100 foolproof paleo recipes that demonstrate how fun and flavorful cooking with wholesome ingredients can be. And did we mention the cartoons?
Nom Nom Paleo kicks off with a fresh introduction to Paleo eating, taking readers on a guided tour of author Michelle Tam's real-food strategies for stocking the kitchen, saving time, and maximizing flavors while maintaining a Paleo lifestyle. Also, sprinkled throughout the book are enlightening features on feeding kids, packing nutritious lunches, boosting umami, and much more.
- The heart of this book are Michelle's award-winning primal Paleo recipes, 50 percent of which are brand-new --- even to diehard fans who own her bestselling iPad cookbook app.
- Readers can start by marrying their favorite ingredients with building blocks like Sriracha Mayonnaise, Louisiana Remoulade, and the infamous Magic Mushroom Powder.
- These basic recipes lay the foundation for many of the fabulous delights in the rest of the book including Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks, Crab Louie, and Devils on Horseback.
Eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing flavor. This book gives you "Paleo with personality," and will make you excited to play in the kitchen again.

We all know some so and so idiotic chef who spoiled the word paleo for most. This is not that chef. This is a genuine tried and tested cook book that’s got some great recipie if your on a paleo preference diet.
This is a true labour of love infused with humour, common sense and a commitment to make paleo cooking something that everyone can do. I've only just downloaded it after months of waiting and it's been worth the wait.
All busy families can access these great ideas and tips and know that they are putting great food on the table, even if they work nights or in busy law practices like Michelle and Henry.

I'll be honest, in a post-Christmas rush, I decided I was going to dive head-first into a Paleo diet without really investigating too much beforehand. While I was already eating a lot of fresh food, I didn't know where to start so I bought about five cookbooks - all of which I'll review soon.
This is by far the best book. As a cook book, it's super simple - there a photo's of a lot of the steps in the cooking process (why don't all cookbooks have this!!) and there are helpful tips throughout on how to change-up the recipes. For example, how to mix-and-match things such as what to do if you have too much egg left over from making schnitzel (use it for Paleo mayonnaise) OR maybe how to take Cauliflower Mash (the greatest recipe ever created) a little bit further.
The book has a visual appeal that is missing from contemporary cooking culture and stands out. It will be the first cookbook you'll pick up for its looks and the only one you'll end up cooking from.
Michelle provides a detailed and easy to understand narrative for each recipe I've read. My favourites so far are the Guacamole, Tomato Salso, Paleo Chili and Crispy Smashed Chicken. The recipes have also acted as guidelines for creating my own Paleo dishes.
The book is illustrated with vibrant photographs and fun cartoons, it's nice to even just have a read.
As a Paleo newcomer I can also say this text is a great companion for those new to the diet or even those who wish to learn more about it and try some recipes.
I understand that this kind of diet is now recommended by British doctors for those seeking to lose weight. Recommended if you're looking for your first book on Paleo eating
