Cookbooks in Our Kitchen

I’ve been asked on a couple of occasions recently which cookbooks I have, or that I like; and by “I” I mean “We” and by “We” I mean my wife who does MOST of the recipe oriented cooking (she’s the mathematician, I’m the improvisor).  [ProTip] We frequently use the library if we are unsure about cookbooks, and if we find more than one or two meals that we like over the course of an average check out, we’ll by the book.  If not, we jot down the one or two that we might like and send it back. 

What follows is a list of the specifically Paleo cook books that we use the most or from which we’ve pulled inspiration:

  1. Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat (This book is Whole30 Approved)
  2. Make it Paleo: Over 200 Grain Free Recipes For Any Occasion
  3. Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle
  4. Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook: Real Food for Real Life
  5. The Paleo Diet Cookbook: More than 150 recipes for Paleo Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners, Snacks, and Beverages
  6. Paleo Slow Cooking: Gluten Free Recipes Made Simple
  7. Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook: Real Food for Real Life
  8. Paleo Comfort Foods: Homestyle Cooking for a Gluten-Free Kitchen

Also, not specifically Paleo, but with Recipes that are EASILY converted to Paleo, we recommend:

  1. The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook
  2. Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals: Delicious, Primal-approved meals you can make in under 30 minutes (Primal Blueprint Series)

I might get a chance to update these with feedback from the both of us on each one, but honestly, I encourage you to hit your local library and get them and try them each on for size.  What works for my family of four might not work for a single dude living in a dorm room (See my thoughts on THAT predicament here) or a newlywed couple trying to figure out dinners for two.
