2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, 7 April 2014
It wasn't a book which inspired me to get cracking straight away. The idea of the superfood is just to add a difference. I like the traditional aspect of indian cuisine and I would not normally think of adding red cabbage to a curry or sea vegetables with star anise. I guess it is good to try something new.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much Dairy, 7 April 2014
This is fine if you can eat dairy. There is a lot of cream and cheese and only a few recipes so as an ideas book it falls short. It is an endorcement of the paleo theory, eating a good high protein breakfast and simple lunch followed by a low carb dinner with lots of vegetables. Blue cheese omelette would not set me up for the day neither would stuffed fish for lunch. Cool cucumber and avocado soup wouldn't float my boat either.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Asian Twist, 7 April 2014
I still wanted to follow a paleo diet as we eat a lot of Asian food so it was helpful to know how to overcome the high carb aspect of this cuisine. It is not an everyday cookery book for me but it gave me alternate ideas which was just the job. I am not sure about the cartoon aspect of the presentation but it is different. Recipes include sriracha sauce and mayonnaise the paleo way which compliment the various burger recipes and prawn dishes. There are so many nice tasty things to cook.
