This is the cookbook to get if you want to eat all your favorites but without using grains. The author does all the work for you! Easy to understand explanations of why cooking without grain is a more healthy alternative to traditional ingredients. The recipes are easy to understand, organized well, and beautifully photographed. I was very please with the variety of recipes in this Paleo cookbook. As previously stated, most of the recipes are of common meals remade to be grain free. The book has a good variety of breads that I am in the process of trying (to some degree of success!) Breads are the toughest for me to give up! The several that I have already tried were beyond delicious. Do yourself a favor and go for a grain free and healthier lifestyle; let this cookbook be a good start.\
