  1. Paleo is an abbreviation for the Paleolithic, or the Stone Age. The food is also called primeval food and focuses on the original diet of the hunters and gatherers of that time. This means that grain products, legumes, industrially processed milk products, sugar and processed vegetable fats are on the 'prohibited' list.

Lifestyle diseases

  1. According to paleo theory, our primordial genes have not been able to adapt to these products in such a relatively short time, which is why modern nutrition literally makes us sick. Lifestyle diseases such as type 2 diabetes and obesity are the result.

The paleo principle

  1. The basic principle of paleo is that you feed yourself with natural and unprocessed foods in the form of meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits and natural fats. In this way, the body gets all the nutrients it needs to live a healthy life and to maintain or regain its natural fitness.

Prohibited foods

  1. The Complete Paleo Cookbook, written by Nico Richter, elaborates on the principles behind this diet. The first chapter explains in detail which foods you can eat in this diet and why. In addition, there is a clear explanation about the products that are not allowed and that is quite a lot. For example, all products with components of wheat, rye, barley, oats and millet are on that list. But pseudocereals such as quinoa, buckwheat or amaranth also belong to this group. According to the writer, this prevents, among other things, chronic intestinal inflammation, a fluctuating blood sugar level and obesity in the long term. Furthermore, legumes (including peanuts) and - initially - dairy products are prohibited.

Furthermore, legumes (including peanuts) and - in the beginning - dairy products are prohibited.

Typical paleo meal

  1. The explanation of the principles is clear and interspersed with examples. It clarifies what a typical paleo meal should look like on your plate and what the benefits are. This would give you a better skin and digestion and you get more energy. In addition, sleep, concentration and mood improve and menstrual pain and respiratory problems such as asthma would be prevented.

Thirty days paleo

  1. The second part of The Complete Paleo Cookbook examines the usefulness of a thirty-day paleo program. Richter admits that eating strictly paleo for a month may seem like an impossible task, but makes it clear that drastic changes usually have better results than a comfortable step-by-step switch. In addition, thirty days are needed to learn changes. Such a strict period therefore helps you to make a conscious choice for a healthier lifestyle. At the end of the month, much has become a habit and therefore easier to maintain and fit into daily life.

In addition, 30 days are required to learn changes. Such a strict period therefore helps you to make a conscious choice for a healthier lifestyle. At the end of the month, much has become a habit and therefore easier to maintain and fit into daily life.

Emergency Management

  1. The explanations in the book are supplemented with useful tips and advice. It tells you how best to prepare for those thirty days and when to start. Emergencies such as an unexpected birthday visit are addressed and the writer tells you what to drink at parties. Richter also discusses life after those thirty days, when you can add some foods (think of dairy products, alcohol and coffee) if you need them, although he does not recommend this. Finally, he discusses substitute products, pitfalls and the use of nutritional supplements.

Sustainability

  1. The last part of The Complete Paleo Cookbook is also the thickest part: over a hundred paleo recipes. In all recipes the emphasis is on the quality of the food and the use of seasonal and regional products. Sustainability is important in paleo theory. Furthermore, the book contains a list of the products that should always be in your pantry, it gives advice on the right cooking equipment and weekly schedules. The recipes are healthy and varied. Think of breakfasts of sweet pancakes (with linseed flour), warm apple cookies with plums or a breakfast pan with sweet potato. There is a section devoted to egg recipes, for snacks as well as breakfast or dinner. The vegetable recipes are also discussed separately. There are recipes for cauliflower 'rice', zucchini spaghetti and pizza with cauliflower crust. And of course the book also contains tasty meat and fish recipes. Good preparation is half the battle with paleo. Especially if you have limited time, good planning is required. For example, some breakfast recipes take half an hour. The writer recognizes this, which is why he also gives tips on paleo cooking for a week and tips for freezing. All in all, The Complete Paleo Cookbook is a suitable collection for the novice and the advanced paleo eater.
