Overview of Book:
Caveman Feast features 200-pages of unique, inspired recipes that include virtually every cut of meat, a variety of side dishes and condiments, breakfast options and desserts. The recipes are simple and easily adapted for one or a group. Recipes range from grilling to crock pot cooking to oven and stove-top preparation ensuring whatever the season or your schedule there are options to try. Probably one of the most comprehensive Paleo recipe books I’ve seen, Caveman Feast uses simple ingredients to create everyday recipes and could become your kitchen ‘bible’ when it comes to meal ideas.
Who This Book is For:
This book is for anyone who understands the concept of the Paleo diet and, rather than looking for insights and an education, is simply craving new and tasty recipes and inspiration for everyday eating.
The book is divided by proteins and food categories so your own favorite chapter may depend on whether you’re a beef eater, have a sweet tooth or crave ideas for condiments and garnishes that will suit the Paleo lifestyle. For me breakfast is always the biggest challenge so my favorite chapter is definitely one that will help get the day off to a good start in new and creative ways. With recipes ranging from simple sausages and egg scrambles to more complex Eggs Benedict over Waffles, there is something for everyone and every day.
Top 3 Recipes:
As you browse the book, the first recipe you hit in the Beef Entrees section is the Avocado-Stuffed Burger. Brilliant! I make inside out burgers all the time, stuffed with garlic or little piles of sautéed onion but avocado had never occurred to me. Imagining that creamy avocado hidden inside that first bite of a juicy burger makes me want to fire up the grill. The prep time is minimal and given the health benefits of avocado this is an easy meal you could serve regularly and feel good about. Being breakfast challenged as I am, and admitting to a fondness for the occasional baked good, my next favorite recipe is the German Apple Pancakes which stand out as a real treat. The total prep time is a little long but totally worth it when you bite into these tasty, cinnamon and maple spiced bundles. This one definitely makes my list for brunch or a special weekend breakfast when I want to make sure I get everyone to the table without a fuss. Not every cookbook offers the kind of variety and selection in desserts as the Caveman Feast so my third pick comes from there. We all need a little sweet once in a while so for me the Paleo Crunch Fudge stands out as a treat. The satisfaction of chocolate combined with a nutty crunch will satisfy any sweet tooth and is worthy even of gift-giving if you want to share a little something special with friends.
About Heather Seftel-Kirk: Not a physician or nutritionist, Heather came to her understanding of food and health through parenting three children, now teens, who seemed not to fit the ‘norms’ of health and through questions…so many questions.
