Overview

Unlike other 'superfood' lists you may have seen that include things like soy, legumes, quinoa and goji, the Paleo community has a very different idea of what constitutes nutritional 'power foods'. With superfoods like grass-fed bison, bone broth, and coconut oil you are on your way to amazing health benefits including reduced incidence of diabetes, autoimmune illnesses, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases. Paleo expert Heather Connell will guide you through the top 50 Paleo superfoods from power proteins like salmon and locally farmed beef to super fats and Paleo-approved fruits and vegetables. Powerful Paleo Superfoods is your essential guide to getting the best out of your Paleolithic lifestyle.

LOVE this book! This is so much more than just a cookbook. There is so much valuable info on Paleo superfoods and a detailed list of "yes" and "no" Paleo foods - and the "why's" behind them! I gave a copy to my mom, who doesn't even follow the Paleo diet, because it is a great resource on why we should and shouldn't eat certain foods. We've tried a few of the recipes and they are amazing! Can't wait to try more.  Definitely recommend for everyone-not just Paleo!

My new favorite Paleo book that is both a cookbook and educational!! This book is so great because everything is explained in such a way that it is easy to understand. It also provides so many practical recipes that are simple to make from Avocado Tomato Tarts to Caribbean Citrus Roasted Sweet Potatoes. I love the great creative twists on our familiar foods/weekly staples. I highly recommend this book!!!
