From the publisher – The Paleo Diet is an incredibly popular diet, but it’s also expensive, difficult to follow, and controversial due to the high consumption of red meat, pork, and animal fats that the diet demands. Idiot’s Guides: Mediterranean Paleo Cookbook combines the benefits of the Paleo Diet with the medically-proven health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet to give Paleo followers a new way to reap the benefits of two of the most popular diets on the planet. Anyone who is interested in taking a healthier approach to Paleo (traditional Paleo followers, vegan, or vegetarian-leaning eaters who need or want to eat meat for health reasons, and anyone with grain or inflammation issues) will be interested in this book. With over 100 fantastic, uber-healthy recipes, you will learn how to cook the Mediterranean Paleo way from an experienced Paleo chef who has developed recipes for several of the most popular Paleo sites on the Internet.

Chapters in this cookbook include

  • The Mediterranean Paleo Diet
  • Planning Ahead
  • Breakfasts
  • Antipasto
  • Salads
  • Paleo Pastas
  • Soups
  • Vegetables
  • Seafood
  • Poultry
  • Beef, Pork, and Lmb
  • Desserts

The recipes in this cookbook are clearly written and easy to follow. While I am not a big fan of the whole “Idiot’s” concept (it’s insulting), this cookbook does have a lot of features that I do like. Each recipe has a bright and attractive photo. The recipes also highlight prep and cooking time, items that I take into consideration when deciding which recipe I want to try. If you’re interested in the paleo diet and or Mediterranean cuisine, this cookbook is one that you might want to consider.

I really like these books because they’re so easy to follow. I eat paleo and it would be interesting to see how it combines the Mediterranean diet with it.

I really like this series of books. I love simple recipes to follow. I bet the pasta recipes are great in this book.

We follow a lot of the Mediterranean diet recommendations, although I found paleo hard to stick to. Would be curious to see what sort of recipes they offer.

Gee, I remember how when hubby gave me an idiot cookbook and I complained, you said I was no fun.

I don’t follow any particular diet, but do like Mediterranean foods. That dish on the cover looks delicious!
