So what book do you recommend to get started with the food changes?

I need a guide as to what is a good paleo meal and whats not. I want simple foods not anything exotic like escargo, chicken livers or sushi for meal options. Which book is the best beginners book for eating changes with the best information without fancy recipes of unusual foods? I like the information I've gotten from several of Mark Sisson Books, but am not fond of the menu plans. I need something less exotic than several of his suggestions. I would also like to see a daily menu included for at least a week.
Thanks

Gosh, I think I've recommended this link like 4 times on this site already for newbies. Okay, here goes again. Robb Wolf has a beginners guide on his website for free. It helps you break out your food groups into proteins, veg, fat, etc so you can then mix and match. It doesn't have to be a complicated recipe.

Check the column on the right to navigate around to the different beginner info.

I also really enjoy Everyday Paleo cookbook. The recipes were somewhat simple and I found them easy to follow.

I thought EveryDayPaleo by Sarah Fragoso had nice, normal meals.

If you give us a daily menu for a week of the foods you're eating pre-paleo, I'd be happy to come up with a paleo-fied version of it (and others might, too). I think the key to making the change is to eat how you normally eat, with the foods you like, just cut out the grains, legumes, dairy (if you don't tolerate dairy), etc.

I've purchased a few 'paleo' cookbooks and honestly can't say any were really worth the cost. You can easily search the web, there are TONS of recipes, menus online free on paleo sites.

Unless you are interested in making paleo fried chicken or chicken liver pate, its really not necessary to spend money on these cookbooks (sorry to anyone out there who has published one!).

One person's exotic is another's everyday fare, so I'd go along with the suggestion above to let us know what you usually eat. Everyday Paleo may be a good choice, but it's so hard to tell. Chicken livers don't sound very exotic, but if you don't like them, they would not be an appetizing suggestion.

A better choice might be to read blogs and Facebook pages. They are full of all sorts of meal plans and recipes. That way you're not stuck with a bunch of foods that don't work for your family.
