On the main page of this 60 day challenge I’ve given you links to the various websites I’ve used for information, recipes and encouragement during this Paleo / Primal experiment. But I thought I should turn the spotlight to my go-to Paleo / Primal library – the books that have really shaped the way I’ve thought about food during the challenge and also in the months leading up to it.
The Primal Blueprint – Mark Sisson
The first Paleo-ish book I read and the one that I’m most aligned with in my food thinking. I stumbled upon Mark’s website some time ago (Mark’s Daily Apple) and I really like the way this man thinks and lives.
It Starts With Food – Dallas & Melissa Hartwig
I loved this book. Easy to follow and a great chapter breakdown of the different food groups. The chapter ‘the guts of the matter’ was an interesting read too.
I Quit Sugar – Sarah Wilson
I’m a big fan of Sarah’s website and ebooks, so the printed version of her sugar free book was always going to end up on my bookshelf.
Make It Paleo – Bill Staley & Hayley Mason
My favourite Paleo recipe book. Nothing too complicated or fancy-schmancy. Just my kind of simple cooking.
Practical Paleo – Diane Sanfilippo
This isn’t just a recipe book but a comprehensive guide to following Paleo. A beautiful book and a lot of great recipes too.
OMG! I Can Eat That? and Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah – Jane Kennedy
While not officially Paleo or Primal, Jane Kennedy’s recipes follow the same principals. I’ve been a big fan of her books for a long time and I love that they’re still relevant while I’m practicing Paleo.
I have a serious weakness for books. I fantasise about living in a house with a dedicated study or library one day and my addiction to fishpond.com means that I’m well on my way to filling those library shelves. If you haven’t stumbled across this little gem of a website, be warned. Within seconds you can search for a book, hit checkout and wait for the parcel to arrive. Free shipping too! Very dangerous for us book lovers.
The challenge end is in sight – 11 days to go Paleo peeps!
