The Paleo Cookbook: 90 Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes the Whole Family Will Love (Skyhorse Publishing, January 2014) by Anna Conrad

Conrad explains the basic mechanics of the hunter-gatherer diet; how to inventory your fridge; the truth about saturated fats; and other tips and tricks to sticking with the paleo diet. Using the concept of green, yellow, and red light foods (foods that are always okay to eat; foods that should be consumed in moderation; and foods to avoid), she makes it easy for readers to create recipes of their own as well. Beginners will love Conrad’s twenty-eight-day paleo challenge, which lays out a month of meals.

Happy cooking!
