By the #1 and critically-acclaimed Paleo food blogger, Nom Nom Paleo features over 100 flavor-packed, nutrient-dense recipes using real, whole ingredients for foodies, fitness buffs, and families, presented in a fun, fresh style complete with awesome cartoons and tons of 4-color photography. 

A New York Times cookbook best-seller.

Nom Nom Paleo is a visual feast, crackling with humor and packed with stunningly photographed step-by-step recipes free of gluten, soy, and added sugar. Designed to inspire the whole family to chow down on healthy, home-cooked meals, this cookbook compiles over 100 foolproof paleo recipes that demonstrate how fun and flavorful cooking with wholesome ingredients can be. And did we mention the cartoons?

Nom Nom Paleo kicks off with a fresh introduction to Paleo eating, taking readers on a guided tour of author Michelle Tam's real-food strategies for stocking the kitchen, saving time, and maximizing flavors while maintaining a Paleo lifestyle. Also, sprinkled throughout the book are enlightening features on feeding kids, packing nutritious lunches, boosting umami, and much more.

But the heart of this book are Michelle's award-winning primal Paleo recipes, 50 percent of which are brand-new --- even to diehard fans who own her bestselling iPad cookbook app. Readers can start by marrying their favorite ingredients with building blocks like Sriracha Mayonnaise, Louisiana Remoulade, and the infamous Magic Mushroom Powder. These basic recipes lay the foundation for many of the fabulous delights in the rest of the book including Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks, Crab Louie, and Devils on Horseback.

There's something for everyone in this cookbook, from small bites like Apple Chips and Kabalagala (Ugandan plantain fritters) to family-sized platters of Coconut Pineapple "Rice" and Siu Yoke (crispy roast pork belly). Crave exotic spices? You won't be able to resist the fragrant aromas of Fast Pho or Mulligatawny Soup. In the mood for down-home comforts? Make some Yankee Pot Roast or Chicken Nuggets drizzled with Lemon Honey Sauce. When a quick weeknight meal is in order, Nom Nom Paleo can show you how to make Crispy Smashed Chicken or Whole-Roasted Branzini in less than 30 minutes. And for a cold treat on a hot day, nothing beats Paleo-diet-friendly Mocha Popsicles or a two-minute Strawberry Banana Ice Cream.

Eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing flavor. This book gives you "Paleo with personality," and will make you excited to play in the kitchen again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice book! It is a very nice book with lots of great recipes. The style takes a bit to get used to, if you are not into comics I find but it is well written. My family loves the Cracklin' Chicken!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great photography, but didn't gravitate to the recipes I was a bit disappointed by this book. I've followed Michelle's blog and had success with her recipes there, so I had high expectations for her book. Overall, the photography is beautiful and Michelle's writing style and little characters are very engaging and entertaining. I just found that the recipes I tried either took a lot of time, special ingredients or were not quit flavoured correctly (ie the quick pickled veg). Despite this, I'm still interested in checking out her other book that is currently available for pre-order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Paleo Perfected I never read a cookbook from cover to cover but this book was not your typical cookbook layout. It was quirky and interesting and had beautiful pictures it makes you want to try everything. All the recipes work out and taste great. If you've embarked on a Paleo diet or even if you haven't this book is a great addition to your cookbook library.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect First Paleo Cookbook! I bought this a while ago just to decide if we wanted to go the paleo route and it has been amazing!! The recipes are simple i have had no troubles with any of them and they all come out amazing! I find myself reaching for it time and time again, which i did not expect to happen! I was prepared to love a few recipes but i have loved everyone we have made so far!! Some ingredients I had troubles finding but found it super easy to substitute with other variations(mushrooms and fats for exampl). Some of the best money I have spent on a cookbook!
