Go Paleo with 5 ingredients or less!
The Paleo or Primal diet--known in some circles as the "Caveman Diet"--is an eating plan based on evolutionary biology and backed up by medical research. Unlike other diets which can incorporate fake, processed foods and artificial sweeteners, the Paleo diet is based on what our ancestors ate: meats and fish, nuts and seeds, and naturally grown fruits and vegetables.
While some cookbooks embrace the hunter-gatherer lifestyle, the modern Paleolithic family needs healthy and delicious recipes without all the actual hunting and gathering. Bestselling author Dana Carpender helps you remove the processed convenience foods like frozen entrees and takeout, but still make healthy, fast, easy meals that everyone loves.Enjoy a whole chapter on make-ahead foods that can be quickly put together and pulled out and served in no time when you come home from work. There's also a convenient chapter of slow cooker recipes that require a bare minimum of precious morning minutes and are ready to serve when you get home--even if your family gets home in shifts.
Paleo/Primal in 5 Ingredients or Less gives the modern caveman 200 recipes that can be made from 5 or fewer ingredients. All recipes are also sugar-free, grain-free, and gluten-free. This is just what today's caveman needs to cook fast and healthy meals.
Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say "You can't eat that way long-term." Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, "What's for supper?" To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor ofCarbSmart magazine at www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.
