Last October, I tried WHOLE30 eating plan. I was fairly successful at losing weight on the WHOLE30 plan. However, the menu got boring really quickly. I was looking for a book that would give me some ideas. Even though I'm no longer on WHOLE30, I still like to make WHOLE30 recipes. I decided to get The Paleo Chef because the principles are fairly close to WHOLE30.
The Paleo Chef by Pete Evans is absolutely beautifully put together. There are pictures for every recipe. However, I was very disappointed by the actual recipes. They required too many ingredients I don't have in the house. I don't foresee myself making many of the recipes because of the ingredients list. I will do some substitutions here and there, but if I had seen the recipes for the book prior, I would not have purchased this book.
If you enjoy using unique ingredients and are looking to expand your paleo menu, this might be the book for you... but for our family, this cookbook was not what our taste buds were looking for.
I received this book for review from Blogging For Books.
