Cavelady Cooking: 50 Fun Recipes for Paleo, Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Diets [Kindle Edition] 3.5 stars - 19 reviews
Whether you're new to a paleo or gluten-free lifestyle, or just looking for some new ideas, this book has you covered: breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. If you're seeking for new recipes that are free of grains and gluten - this is the perfect book for you.
If you’re familiar with Hilah Cooking, you know I don’t focus my show recipes on any particular diet – I just like to keep things simple, good, and pretty much Texas by default – but my cookbooks can be something else. I know this one won’t automatically appeal to everyone who watches the show and uses my recipes, but I think it will appeal to anyone who’s following the gluten-free, low-carb, or Paleo diets, as well as anyone who just wants some new ways to cook vegetables and meat!
Cavelady Cooking covers breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides, snacks and desserts.
Some breakfast highlights are: Crabcakes Benedict; Potato-free hash; Counterfeit Lara bars; plus several more recipes, not even including 6 funky smoothies!
For lunch, I got real. Real life. So we’re talking lots of make-ahead soups and salads and re-purposing leftovers into deliciousness! Plus some pretty brilliant ideas on making sushi rolls sans rice and tuna salad sans mayonnaise.
The chapter on dinner is ten brand-new recipes including easy homemade Italian sausage (so you can avoid added sugar and preservatives), Cuban chicken, Indian kofta, and pesto-olive roasted chicken. Each main dish recipe offers serving suggestions from the side dishes chapter, which is my personal favorite of all the chapters!
These side dishes are anything but pedestrian. Simple but unusual ways to prepare familiar vegetables like chard, cabbage, spinach, and okra will brighten up your plate and then your face! I even included a recipe for mushroom-stuffed acorn squash that could double as a vegetarian main-dish, should you ever need one.
I also offer a quick chapter on snacks and desserts. From no-cooking-snacks to baba ganoush, I got your snacking needs covered. For dessert, how about some plantain fritters or a peach crumble!
All of the recipes offer shortcuts and substitutions when possible to keep it as easy as possible on you, the cook!

49 Slow Cooker Paleo Recipes for the Caveman Diet [Kindle Edition]
The author lost 100 pounds with the caveman paleolithic diet. What is the caveman diet? No, don't flinch, it's not another worthless weight loss plan. It's a diet plan for paleo food that isn't just about low calorie recipes. This paleo cookbook is chock full of recipes for healthy meals that actively promote healthy eating habits, but they're also slow-cooking recipes for convenience in a busy world.
The caveman crockpot revolution is about listening to the primal nutrition needs of our millions of years of evolution while taking advantage of modern conveniences. Crockpot meals too often mean unhealthy eating patterns. This collection of slow cooker recipes is largely gluten-free but still innovative and resourceful. If you're tired of the same dull beef and veggies (though we have some of the best crockpot recipes for those, too), you'll find a little bit of everything in this collection -- literally from soup to nuts. Paleo adherents will know that some say paleo people can eat wild rice -- and that wine isn't off the diet.
Paleo cookbook recipes aren't hard to find. What's hard to find are recipes that add variety to our lives. Nothing is more boring than a dull Neanderthal diet. These are not only great hunter-gatherer recipes, they're also some of the best crockpot recipes available.
Since they're not the same old, boring fare, there are some extra work steps with a few of them, but most are pretty cut-and-dried for a hard-to-please family. So party with your family like it's 1999 BC. You will lose weight with this plan – you will succeed. You're falling back on millions of years of the wisdom of the human species to support your efforts.
If you thought paleo recipes reduced you to crappy-tasting bread and a future with no rice, think again! Paleo is a very adaptable plan. Here are some of the recipes within:
* Chicken Vegetable and Nut Butter Soup
* Primal Vegetable Wild Rice Soup
* Easy Caveman Breakfast Torte
* Yowza Wayleo Paleo Nut Pot
* Crockpot Antelope Steak
* Chicken and Shrimp à la Neanderthal
* Paleo Slow Cooker Squash with Cinnamon, Cranberries and Apples
* Barbecuus Neanderthalus
and many more.
So join the caveman diet evolution revolution. Cavemen ate many more things than we think! Paleo recipes and the Paleolithic diet plans don't have to be hum-drum any longer. These recipes for the paleo slow cooker nutrition plan constitute one way to build healthy meals around a busy lifestyle. The paleolithic diet lends itself well to the crockpot since the appliance harkens back to the campfire of our most ancient ancestors. Paleo cookbooks that involve the slow cooker in them allow the future and the past to wrap around and meet each other.
No matter what we choose to call it – the caveman diet, the paleo diet plan, the caveman paleolithic Stone Age diet or the hunter gatherer recipes, it doesn't have to be a hunger-gatherer diet! Satisfy your inner caveman with these fun and innovative recipes.
If you're new to paleolithic, the good news is that hearty meat-eaters will love this diet. Weight loss plans and healthy meals used to mean green veggies and fruits plus a little lean meat but very little else. We now know a lot more about human physiology, about the capacity for people to incorporate foods humans have eaten for centuries, such as fatty meats, in a healthy eating way, so long as the meats are carefully chosen and prepared. But vegetarians are welcome, too. The emphasis is always on raw and unprocessed foods.
This isn't just any other gluten free or low carbohydrate diet. It's a very special one that was designed to meet the evolved needs of our species. Recipes for healthy meals no longer need to filch food out of a rabbit's hutch. This paleo cookbook provides paleo breakfast recipes for the slow cooker, along with caveman approved complete meats, paleolithic ethnic recipes, and many more.
We've tried to create the best paleo slowcooker cookbook that we can.
