A New York Times cookbook best-seller. Nom Nom Paleo is a visual feast, crackling with humor and packed with stunningly photographed step-by-step recipes free of gluten, soy, and added sugar. Designed to inspire the whole family to chow down on healthy, home-cooked meals, this cookbook compiles over 100 foolproof recipes that demonstrate how fun and flavorful cooking with wholesome ingredients can be. And did we mention the cartoons? Nom Nom Paleo kicks off with a fresh introduction to Paleo eating, taking readers on a guided tour of author Michelle Tam's real-food strategies for stocking the kitchen, saving time, and maximizing flavors. Also, sprinkled throughout the book are enlightening features on feeding kids, packing nutritious lunches, boosting umami, and much more. But the heart of this book is Michelle's award-winning recipes, 50 percent of which are brand-new --- even to diehard fans who own her bestselling iPad cookbook app. Readers can start by marrying their favorite ingredients with building blocks like Sriracha Mayonnaise, Louisiana Remoulade, and the infamous Magic Mushroom Powder. These basic recipes lay the foundation for many of the fabulous delights in the rest of the book including Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks, Crab Louie, and Devils on Horseback. There's something for everyone in this cookbook, from small bites like Apple Chips and Kabalagala (Ugandan plantain fritters) to family-sized platters of Coconut Pineapple "Rice" and Siu Yoke (crispy roast pork belly). Crave exotic spices? You won't be able to resist the fragrant aromas of Fast Pho or Mulligatawny Soup. In the mood for down-home comforts? Make some Yankee Pot Roast or Chicken Nuggets drizzled with Lemon Honey Sauce. When a quick weeknight meal is in order, Nom Nom Paleo can show you how to make Crispy Smashed Chicken or Whole-Roasted Branzini in less than 30 minutes. And for a cold treat on a hot day, nothing beats Mocha Popsicles or a two-minute Strawberry Banana Ice Cream. Healthy cooking doesn't mean sacrificing flavor. This book gives you "Paleo with personality," and will make you excited to play in the kitchen again.

My diet isn't Paleo right now (I'm on several different ones related to controlling inflammation and chronic illness), but there's some crossover, and I was desperate for recipes for things like offal, and also quick, everyday recipes that don't lean on dairy, sugar, or grains. I'm not sure Paleo would be a solution for my inflammation, but from these recipes I'd be willing to try it! I like how approachable/casual the author is, and how this book is not at all proselytizing Paleo. Most of the recipes look like you can make them on a busy weeknight, which is my current #2 priority for recipes. They also look and sound delicious! The food photographer here is great- very clean, clear, and approachable- not moody or overly stylized. I can't wait to try most of the recipes in this one!

Love the down to earth writing style, photos, and anecdotes. It makes "Paleo" appealing when the author isn't shoving it down your throat. Pun intended. I feel more drawn to it than proselytised while reading this.

One of my go-to, dog-eared paleo cookbooks in the kitchen. So many great (and tasty) recipes!

This cookbook has some great recipes, whether you follow the paleo lifestyle or not. Great pictures, thorough explanations, adorable cartoons, and the cheerful, down-to-earth writing style of Michelle Tam, which has made her Nom Nom Paleo blog such a big success.

I'm not a paleo purist, but just looking to do away with grains. I thought Michelle Tam's recipes were pretty simple and non-complicated, which is great for people who are pressed for time and can't spend half a day cooking and prepping!

Mostly is NOT Paleolithic.

Please read NeanderThin (bad title as our Paleo ancestors were CroMagnon while Neanderthals were a side branch) for a book that has it 90+% right.

Not making the switch to a paleo diet yet but this book has made it more appealing. While there are many complicated recipes with obscure ingredients there are just as many simple recipes with ingredients that I already have. I have saved a bunch of the recipes to try. I can't wait to taste them!
