The all-new design features stunning photography, an overview education on primal eating, shopping and lifestyle elements, updated recipes with macronutrient breakdowns and metric conversions, do-it-yourself preparations for the popular Primal Kitchen brand salad dressings and mayonnaise's, and icon designations for recipes as gluten-free, vegetarian and keto-friendly (inspired by Mark Sisson’s 2017 New York Times bestseller, The Keto Reset Diet.)   The Primal Blueprint Cookbook has everything you need to get started with a primal-style diet, or get more creative with your primal meals. These recipes are free from refined sugars, grains, and vegetable oils, and honor the ancestral foods of meat, fish, fowl, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, and healthy modern foods such as high fat dairy and dark chocolate. You learn about the basics of primal cooking and living, source the best ingredients and kitchen items, and then be off and running with creative recipes in the following categories: Meat, Offal, Fowl, Seafood, Vegetables, Eggs, Primal Substitutes, Marinades, Sauces and Dressings, Desserts, Beverages, Primal Kitchen mayo and dressings, and Keto Recipes.   Even if you’re an enthusiastic meat eater, you’ll break through to the next level with the creative preparations of Offal (animal organ meats.) If you think dessert is only about sugar, you’ll be amazed at the array of primal-approved savory treats you can prepare. With the Substitute Recipe section, you can still enjoy your breads, crackers, muffins, pancakes, and rice, and will perhaps even agree that primal-style tastes even better.   This offering from Mark Sisson, New York Times bestselling author, publisher of the number one primal/paleo blog MarksDailyApple.com, and Jennifer Meier, with 2018 updates by Tracy Dunigan, and Dr. Lindsay Taylor and Layla McGowan (Mark’s co-authors on the bestselling Keto Reset Instant Pot Cookbook), contains over 100 recipes and hundreds of vibrant photos (all from McGowan) to help you dial in these fun and easy to understand recipes. Join the wildly popular primal/paleo movement, as millions are transforming their lives by ditching nutrient-deficient processed modern foods and eating the nutrient-dense foods that have nourished humans for 2.5 million years of evolution.   As you ditch refined sugars, grains and vegetable oils and start emphasizing primal foods, you’ll transition away from the disastrous state of carbohydrate dependency and chronically excessive insulin production that is agreed to be the number one public health problem in the developed world. Instead, you’ll become what Sisson calls a “fat burning beast.” This means you are able to burn fat as your primary fuel source instead of relying on regular high carbohydrate snacks and meals. You’ll enjoy stable energy, appetite, mood, and cognition all day long, and efficiently reduce excess body fat without struggling or suffering in the manner of a typical calorie-restrictive diet. By teaching your body to prefer fat for fuel, you can efficiently reach and maintain your ideal body composition for the rest of your life.   As you build momentum for Primal eating, you'll find that you won't even miss the bland, boring, low-fat foods that previously were the central focus of your diet. How can you argue with a menu that includes Roasted Leg of Lamb with Herbs and Garlic, Salmon Chowder with Coconut Milk, Tomatoes Stuffed with Ground Bison and Eggs, and Baked Chocolate Custard?   The Primal Blueprint isn’t a crash course diet. These and the other Primal recipes provide the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating, high energy and protection from common health problems that arise from eating SAD (Standard American Diet).

    I don't really need more meat recipes so I'm not sure why I picked this up at the library. I was hoping for some new grain-free, dairy-free ones...and this has a lot, but they are mostly meat-based. Like big hunks of meat-based. Which is fine. We eat meat. A lot. Maybe too much which is why I'm looking at cookbooks trying to find new recipes. So, this cookbook is lovely. Lots and lots of pictures and I think those are the best kinds of cookbooks.

If I see a picture that looks good, I want to eat it. It's harder for me to look at a list of ingredients and decide to try it or not. This also discusses a lot of Paleo/Primal basics so if you're new to the 'diet' it will be very helpful. I do feel that it's somewhat lacking in vegetable/side dishes, however, which made it of limited use to me.

    I read this because my husband decided to eat Primal, and bought this book to help him do so. Unfortunately, this is not the cookbook to use to convince someone to join you in a quest to eat Primal. It seems more concerned with achieving the goal of following the diet with 100% accuracy rather than to actually make the food taste good. Lest you think I exaggerate, be warned that there is an entire chapter actually designed to use offal for food.

If that's your thing, and/or you drink the Mark's Daily Apple kool-aid, you'll probably like this book. But my husband is quite gung-ho about following the Primal lifestyle, and even he didn't use most of these recipes beyond the initial cooking trials. If you are interested in Primal eating, but are also still interested in your food tasting good, I would recommend the "Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook" by Sarah Fragoso, and I would not recommend this one at all.

    More like 3.5 stars. In terms of the actual meals some of recipes are a little bland... and a lot of common sense. I mean really, I just paid for a cookbook that tells me how to cook a steak and make bacon in the oven? REALLY?! Once you get past that though, you get to the more valuable recipes, the fowl, fish, veg and egg recipes are great. And the best chapters are the substitutions and deserts! Low carb, dairy, gluten free substitutions to satisfy any cravings. Honestly, I wish the whole book More like 3.5 stars.

Overall I've found it a great introduction book to Paleo cooking, but it still leaves a bit to be desired. Also, this is my first cookbook on the kindle, I love the way the navigation is set up, should make picking out a recipe on the T and then shopping very easy!

    Basically, it's pretty basic. Most of the recipes are variations of "cook protein and vegetable together with some seasoning." Well...yeah. There are some interesting ideas towards the end but I don't think it's worth the price. If you're online reading this, you're better off just googling some recipes. On top of which, most of the pictures of the food don't look very good. Everything looks kind of steamed/boiled/bland.

    Love this cookbook! So delicious. So practical. So healthy. I've got it out in my kitchen all the time... there are often splotches and splashes on the pages... signs of much use and love :) I just saw a follow-up was released this year (2011) called Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals which I am eager to get my hands on. Yum :)

    I've made about half of the recipes in this book and all have been delicious (even the Transylvania stockpot whose name was simply something handed down in the family who had created the recipe and has nothing to do with the dish). I love that he includes a recipe for making one's own deli style roast beef - it is so easy to do that you may never want to buy deli meat again. I wish he had included a recipe for beef jerky, which is similarly easy - however he has a great variety of meals in there I've made about half of the recipes in this book and all have been delicious (even the Transylvania stockpot whose name was simply something handed down in the family who had created the recipe and has nothing to do with the dish).

I wish he had included a recipe for beef jerky, which is similarly easy - however he has a great variety of meals in there. Every recipe has a picture of the ingredients, a pic in process, and a picture of the final product. That is a nice touch. There are a variety of recipes for breakfast beyond the usual variations on scrambled eggs, and that alone for me makes the book worth it. I like the section on primal comfort foods and on snacks. I do like that he covered some basics, such as making bacon or steak, because some people have never been taught the basics. I wish he had included an index; it seems a glaring oversight. Also, I would like to see the prep time and cook time included in the serving information, as is usual for recipes. That too seems like a basic element that any editor should have ensured was included. Beyond those two flaws, though, this is a solid resource for those following a primal template.

    This essentially "return to basics" eating plan is worth checking out if you're really interested in how the clarion call of the "eat more whole grain and low fat" diet/health industry has not worked. Take a look at the people around you! We are, as a nation, fatter and sicker than ever; suffering from higher incidences of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux and all types of cancers to mention just a few problems, than ever before.

If eating more whole grin and less fat was supposed to solve the problem...what's wring with this picture? Could the message that's been preached be backfiring? I highly recommend checking out Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint books and another book called Wheat Belly, by cardiologist Dr. William Davis.

    I was a little surprised at the low-budget feel of this book. The recipes, however, were pretty good. Not much in the revolutionary department, but solid nonetheless. I found the photographs of the different stages in the cooking process to be a little off-putting, but I can see how cooks with less cooking experience might find them useful. My big take-away from this cookbook was the hot cocoa.

It was delicious! And it finally got rid of that chocolate craving I hadn't been able to kick for weeks! Thank you!

    I love these recipes and the concept behind it. I just had to take off one star because there are very few dishes that I can prepare everyday. A lot of these, especially the ones I like takes effort to prepare so it's kinda hard to follow for a daily diet. Just got this eBook but I've already tried some of the recipes in it before. I have to say, all (and I mean ALL) of those that I've tried are great so I'm pretty excited about trying out the rest.

    Very basic recipes that give a good primer on how to cook (mostly) Paleo. It's nice that the recipes don't have heavily processed/hard to find Paleo ingredient substitutes like coconut aminos. On the other hand, the book follows Mark Sisson's version of Paleo, which allows for some diary and uses his "10% rule" (if your daily intake of "off-Paleo" foods is less than 10% it's ok. That means some recipes will call for soy sauce or peas but only in very small amounts. He does give alternatives for Very basic recipes that give a good primer on how to cook (mostly) Paleo.

    Got this and the Primal Blueprint at the same time. The recipes here mesh with what we're doing already, so most everything sounded appealing. The blessing and curse of a Primal cookbook is that the Primal diet is pretty simple, so every dish tends to be "get meat, get veges, cook, eat". :D There wasn't a lot that jumped out at me as a must-make dish. Some of the sides and desserts looked pretty good tho.

    Not the greatest pictures. The recipe instructions need to be more organized as they can be somewhat confusing, but the recipes themselves are really good. Great for anyone eating a primal or paleo diet. This is not a strictly dairy-free cookbook as it states. There is a small amount of dairy used in some recipes, but substitutions can easily be made.

    Logophile (Heather)

    I'm not exactly adopting a primal/paleo diet so my appreciation for the content of this book is somewhat limited. Great photos and interesting recipes (some look quite yummy). There was a great intro of the whys and hows of the primal diet and some good ideas to incorporate in healthier eating in general. Worth checking out.

    Casey

    I read this book earlier this year because I was going through a lot of dietary restrictions. Although it has some creative ideas and a healthy approach to cooking some of the recipes were unattainable and unrealistic for someone who likes too cook. These recipes take a lot of time, most are very good but certainly not convenient.

    A basic grain-free cookbook. Helpful, but not quite as good as I'd hoped. The Egg Casserole with zucchini has become a favorite in our house, as long as I substitute some kind of squash that isn't green. ;-)

    Sommer Marsden

    Easy to read, easy to use. I love this book because 99% of the recipes are doable and edible for me and my newly super sensitive system. Lots of yummy stuff. We've probably prepared about half the book by now! Highly recommended for brand new celiacs and/or grain sensitive folks.

    Matt

    Preachy at times, this book has a vast scope of information and it a great scientific approach to the paleo lifestyle. Take it with a grain of salt, though, as the way one person chooses to eat has been the subject of great debate and malice for many pseudo-celebrities.

    Connie Nelson schuler

    Good source for those new to primal-paleo diets; however, some of the recipes are just too strong tasting for my palette. Especially the Spinach Bread. The Cracked Cardiff and Moroccan Chicken are awesome!

    Kate Arms

    Several of my family's favourite meals are built on recipes from this cookbook, the coconut pancakes, fish patties, salmon chowder, nut butter bars, jambalaya, and shrimp cakes are all in my regular meal rotation. I have used this book so much that it is falling apart.

  24. 4 out of 5

    Mary Hoag

    No Pasta, no bread, no rice, no beans, no kidding. Great recipes with options for the above. I'm celiac, so this works for me although I am working through my cupboards for foods I will not replace. Chocolate is good.

    Laura

    The recipes in this book are true to the Paleo diet, but often not as tasty as I would like. However, after adding one's one twist, the meals are delicious. My favorite is the cauliflower "fried-rice."

    Alison

    This book is really a ‘Paleo’ cookbook, and instead calls it ‘Primal blueprint’. The introduction is short and sweet and reads like a Paleo book. The recipes are easy and simple for the most part, but they also have good cooking tips and instructions.

    Beverly

    I'm not going to rate this one. I don't know if I go along with with all the ideas behind this way of eating, but making crepe-like "tortillas" for enchiladas (to avoid the corn) sounds like something I'd like to try.

  28. 5 out of 5

    Shiv

    yet another cookbook with a few good recipes and a lot of stuff i never try. i'll borrow it again and try some more, but most of our great recipes these days come from blogs.

    This book is worth the money for the deli style roast beef recipe alone.
