Best cookbook / website for Paleo meals

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 14, 2011 at 2:54 PM

I wanted to know if there was a good website to plan out a week's worth of meals. We usually do our grocery shopping on the weekend, so it'd be really nice to go in with a plan rather than aimlessly buy food.

I've checked out www.thefoodee.co, but the interface isn't as user friendly as I'd like it.

Jan, the food pics on your site are gorgeous! I'm a cook and I always try to photograph my stuff and it never turns out (because I'm not a great photographer)...nice work :)

When that movie came out my daughter and I tried to cook as many of the recipes as possible, I wasn't paleo then so I got really really fat. I'm afraid to go near the sets of books! But, knowing what I know now, and not eating all the grains and flours....it might be worth trying again!! thanks!!!

Along the same line, I've found that our old Betty Crocker cookbook is pretty paleo friendly. It has recipes for things like liver and tongue.

Ooooo - both of those are great! Please let me know how you and your husband like them. If you enjoy the green beans, there's a recipe on my site for balsamic-glazed brussels sprouts with pancetta. It'll make you cry.

I don't know of any sites that plan out you shopping for you, but there are loads of helpful sites to go recipe hunting. I LOVE hunting recipes here are some of my fave sites/blogs for recipes:

http://everydaypaleo.com/

http://www.primal-palate.com/ - this one to me is like food porn :) I've made dozens of these recipes and they all turn out amazing!!

http://paleoblocks.blogspot.com/

http://www.livingpaleo.com/category/paleo-recipes/

http://www.janssushibar.com/ - just found this one and am making one of jan's recipes tonight!

I have Sissons cookbook and it's great - if you sign up on his website (marks daily apple) you can download the reader submitted cookbook for free and it has some great recipes too

Have fun and buy a binder to put all your new recipes in!!!

This may seem an unusual choice, but check out Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." Julia never met a hunk of butter, cream or meat she didn't like. Lots of Paleo-compatible recipies.

Well, this site is not exactly Paleo (although I find it funny to say this since the guy hunts down a lot of his food), but I thought I'd add it here because it's such a great resource for lots of things (caught a salmon fishing and it has eggs in it? Want to know how to preserve the roe? come here) that aren't available at other sites. Also I have super respect for the author because he is as his blog is named a Hunter Angler Gardner Cook. If you skip over the grain stuff and whatnot, there's a lot of technique to be learned here when it comes to wild game, cured and cooked meats and such.

I am a big fan of Sisson's blog: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/

And his two cookbooks are FULL of awesome recipes:

http://www.amazon.com/Primal-Blueprint-Cookbook-Grain-Free-Gluten-Free/dp/0982207727/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b

http://www.amazon.com/Primal-Blueprint-Quick-Easy-Meals/dp/0982207743/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b

I've made many of these recipes and so far, not a bum in the bunch.

The nourishing traditions cookbook has a lot of paleo friendly recipes. I reference it frequently. I also like my standard joy of cooking. I just stay in the meat, eggs, and veggies section and sub animal or coconut fat any time a recipe calls for oil.

Check out paleoplan.com. For $10/month they send you a shopping list and meal plan for the week. Be careful though, some of the items can be paleo-controversial, so it depends on how comfortable you are with eating those things. All of the recipes on there are free, though. I used it for the first month that I went paleo, just to keep me on track, but since then I've developed a few staple meals that I cook every week.

Also check out everydaypaleo.com. Great yummy recipes and she has a cookbook coming out within a month. From a lot of these blogs, you can find other paleo links... it's endless.

Hi Dirtdiver,

I did a post a while ago for a sample "meals for the week." My hope was to provide people with a framework so that they could then plan future weeks of theirs in a somewhat similar fashion.

I know there was also a posting on Robb Wolf's site a while ago about preparing for the week...
