5.0 out of 5 stars Honest, Accessible & Genuinely Looks Delicious! July 12, 2014
I must confess, as someone who counts nurses and dieticians as part of her immediate family, I am weary of diet books and the eating/exercise industry in general. As a result, I approached Elizabeth Gordon’s PALEO DIET with some trepidation: this couldn’t actually tell me anything I didn’t already know, packaged up as a supposed amazing new discovery, could it?? Yet this accessible, interesting book really changed my mind!

The Paleo Diet book sets itself up as a guideline, not a bible which I really appreciate – I hate the standard, mocking “do this or you’re an idiot” of so many similar books. Gordon’s conversational tone is like a trusted friend, taking you through every element of the so-called “Caveman diet”. She talks about the history of food and what changing your mindset and lifestyle can do for you in terms of health benefits. As a cancer survivor myself, this is obviously on my mind a lot both for me and my family, so this was especially welcome. Gordon is also honest, saying that in the short term The Paleo Diet will NOT make your life easier, but then I think things worth doing never are. The costs of following a Paleo Diet do concern me, but the recommendation of another book at the end of this one for those who are “cash strapped” (as we are) gives me hope that we can find a good compromise on this.

There are celebrity endorsements of the Paleo Diet and whilst not a pull for me, I can appreciate why some people would be interested in these. I personally enjoyed Gordon’s references to the “dupermarket” – I believe supermarkets and big businesses are in the habit of manipulation re: commerce and particular products being good for us (when they’re not) too. I agree with Gordon that consumerism and a reliance on sugars, processed foods and wheat is not good for us, yet I’ve felt powerless to do anything but merely limit my family’s intake and make basic switches, like olive oil instead of vegetable oil.

This book is packed with tasty looking recipes that genuinely look delicious and are not just the same-old, same-old I’ve seen before – I was particularly intrigued by the Zucchini (courgette) fries. I feel like my eyes have been opened to the possibilities of a radically different diet, which does not include “rabbit food”, but a real enjoyment of tasty foods, even including desserts (and given as a family we ALL have a sweet tooth, this is VERY important!). Thanks, Elizabeth Gordon!

This review is from: PALEO DIET – Get Started, Get Motivated, Feel Great (Kindle Edition)
I am an Aries and before I do anything I want to know WHY? That is probably why I enjoyed this book; the author gave me more than enough good reasons to take a long hard look at what I am eating and to make changes. I mean we all know sugar is bad for us, but why, is it just because it makes us fat? NO, I found out. Gordon explains why milk, sugar and certain fats are doing our long and also short term health no good. OK, I admit, I have not gone cold turkey on all dairy and wheat, but I see now that my diet revolved around those foods, at the expense of far more nutritious foods.
I am incorporating the recipes into my weekly routine and weeding out some of the nasty health damaging foods listed. This book was really educational
5.0 out of 5 stars Complete guide to paleo, October 15, 2014
This review is from: PALEO DIET – Get Started, Get Motivated, Feel Great (Kindle Edition)
Wow, just wow! This complete is the ONLY complete guide to Paleo anyone needs!! The author really covers every aspect! The introduction is great as the author gives a brief outline of herself and why she east paleo. I really like her style of writing and I was interested straight away!

Excellent information from the get go…facts and studies are included and I have to say the section on milk was an eye opener for me. I had a ‘ah ha’ moment and it confused me as to why I had never thought this way before!

Great section on the history of paleo as well as an section including the 10 most famous paleo celebrities, this includes a piece about each star too.

There are 7 days of recipes which includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack and Desserts for EVERY day. I made the hamburgers over the weekend and they were delicious. We have decided we are going to follow the full weeks meals next week to see how we feel.

An excellent book on paleo and I cannot recommend it highly enough…one of the best out there in my honest opinion (I have a few paleo cookbooks!)



REVIEWS for DELICIOUS NUTRITIOUS RECIPES: Lose weight, save money and get your five-a-day with these healthy and easy recipes.

Food combining for flavor is an art form and Lisa is gifted. Six (sometimes more, sometimes less) ingredients and you can have a meal for your family, or yourself and a few house guests, that didn’t cost you an arm and a leg but isn’t standard fare. Although I have been cooking for over 30 years I found many ideas in this book. Last night we had the Haddock and Cheese Sauce – delicious and on the table in less than 30 minutes without a lot of fuss. I’ll make that one again but there are many others from the book to try first. If you get this book, be sure to skim through all the recipes because there are quite a few hidden gems within the recipes – especially about prepared salad dressings and spice blends. The author must be from the UK because in a few recipes she mentions a “vegetable marrow” – I had to google it. I can’t say I’ve ever seen these in our grocery stores, but I believe any summer squash would be a decent substitution. Every other term or ingredient was standard fare and easy to find in the grocery store. Great book for ideas, but also for new cooks not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen for every meal.


What a compelling introduction! Lisa shows WHY it is so much better to home-cook your meals than buy pre-prepared foods from the supermarket. Low fat means high sugar. And lots more reasons to get busy in the kitchen.

The index of recipes is over 3 pages long so you get tons of good ideas here for all kinds of dishes, both mains and desserts.

Options? Indeed. Lisa even gives vegetarian options such as replacing chicken breast with cashew nuts. And coconut milk as a lower fat option to coconut cream.

Measurements are provided in tablespoons/teaspoons and millilitres (mls). Temperatures are given in degree F.

Recommended. Your family will love you for it.

Recipes Even I Can’t Mess Up. Delightful recipes reminiscent of my youth but with added sparkle. These recipes are simple enough I can make them and the use ingredients I can get at our local store. What is more, they fit with some self-imposed dietary restrictions for some health and weight issues. Even the ones with foods I am limiting for now have such good things in them that as I relax the restrictions and again have “reward meals” I will explore those recipes because they have good, healthy ingredients. No more fast food treats for me.
