Review: The Paleo Chef by Pete Evans

Acclaimed international chef and television personality Pete Evans takes a whole new approach to making gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free meals that are worthy of a restaurant but effortless to prepare.

More and more people are discovering the health benefits of the Paleo lifestyle by cutting out processed, sugary foods and instead eating quality proteins and fats, fresh vegetables and fruits, and nuts and seeds. However, following this way of eating doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor or spending a long time in the kitchen. In The Paleo Chef, Evans provides more than 100 recipes for gorgeous food that is satisfying, distinctive, and good for you, including Kale Hummus, Vietnamese Chicken Wings, and Key Lime Tart.

Each and every one of Evans’s innovative recipes pops with flavor and is brought to life with stunning, full-color photography. Living—and eating—the Paleo lifestyle has never been so effortless and so delicious.

Received for review.

I have to admit that I don’t follow the Paleo lifestyle for various reasons, but I’m never one to pass up a cookbook so I had to read this.

What I enjoyed most about this was that it was well organized and visually appealing. Each recipe has its own page and accompanying photograph of what it is supposed to look like which is incredibly helpful for home cooks.

The recipes themselves were interesting, and I really would like to try the Chocolate Brownies, but many of them called for hard to find ingredients. Sure, if you live in a big city they may be easier to find, but if you don’t you’d probably need to order them online.

Overall, if you enjoy the Paleo lifestyle you will probably find this incredibly informative and will enjoy the recipes but if you don’t do Paleo you may find it a bit overwhelming.
