I don’t even know where to begin with how much I love Practical Paleo. I’ve read through it twice now and I open it daily to reference something or make one of the recipes from it. It’s pretty much everything you’ll ever need for starting out with Paleo and a whole-foods lifestyle.
The first part of the book covers what Paleo is all about and why some of what we’ve been taught about good nutrition is wrong. It includes lots of information about the digestive system (i.e. leaky gut, gluten, anti-nutrients) as well as 120 delicious Paleo recipes and tear-out guides for easy access. It also provides a bunch of 30-day meal plans designed specifically to support a number of conditions, including:
- immune health (autoimmune conditions)
- blood sugar regulation (diabetes 1 & 2, hypoglycemia)
- digestive health (leaky gut, IBS & IBD)
- multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue
- heart health (cholesterol & blood pressure)
- neurological health (Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s)
- cancer recovery
- fat loss
- athletic performance
Each section offers specific diet and lifestyle recommendations as well as nutritional supplements and herbs to consider. It’s really interesting and definitely something to consider.
