Product description

Review

"Nom Nom Paleo Food for Humans clearly describes what the Paleo diet is all about and why it makes sense. As a cook who embraces all diets, and therefore no particular diet beyond fresh cooked food, I love this book for its sound techniques, flavorful pairings, and innovative dishes. There’s also a contagious joyousness about the way Michelle presents food that makes you want to cook along with her. I want to cook Paleo because she makes it look so fun!" (Michael Ruhlman, James Beard Award-winning author of numerous books about food and cooking)

This is a delightful read-playful, irreverent, fun-from beginning to end, with easy-to-follow recipes that will inspire anyone wanting to eat a more healthy diet. Thank you, Michelle and Henry, for showing us that eating Paleo doesn’t have to mean eating steak and broccoli every day!" (Elise Bauer, award-winning creator of SimplyRecipes.com)

"I do appreciate cooks who are able to plunge headfirst into the culinary unknown." (Christopher Kimball, Wall Street Journal)

"I don’t care if you’re a discriminating foodie or a picky tot: If you’re a human who eats food, you need this book. Nom Nom Paleo’s lip-smacking recipes, zany humor, and eye-popping style will prove to you that Paleo won’t just make you look, feel, and perform better - you’ll eat better, too." (Robb Wolf, New York Times bestselling author The Paleo Solution)

"In the playful book, brimming with lighthearted humor and comics, Tam and Fong offer insight into the Paleo lifestyle, reveal tips on how to get started, and share a plethora of tasty, and Paleo-approved recipes." (Lauren Rubin, Relish)

“Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans” (Andrews McMeel, $35), an accessible, adorably illustrated guide to eating Paleo, with his wife, Michelle Tam. (Vicki Hyman, New Jersey Star-Ledger)

"What’s for dinner?” is no longer a stress-inducing conundrum, as Nom Nom Paleo proves that cooking for your family can be easy, healthy, and fun. Featuring delicious recipes and lots of kitchen self-help, this book details step-by-step instructions perfect for the stovetop-challenged, and enough variations to inspire the budding chef. And the photos...oh, the PHOTOS! Worthy of their very own coffee table, the pictures and original illustrations make this unique cookbook perfect for the visual learner." (Melissa Hartwig, New York Times bestselling author It Starts with Food)

I'm new to a paleo diet and this is the first book I have bought. It's not quite what I expected, but having said that I'm not sure exactly what my expectations were. It's very detailed with lots of recipes with easy to follow instructions.

It's a lovely quality book with lots of great photos.

Recipes are delicious and rich. The only problem is if you have little time to cook, many of the recipes takes time to cook.

This is a great book; beautiful photos and inspiring words and, of course, fab recipes. I have been waiting for the book as, not having an ipad, I couldn't get the cooking app. Michelle has a brilliant blog and this is a great accompaniment to it. She's so wonderfully enthusiastic! There are usually problems with getting a few of the ingredients here in the UK (when cooking from US paleo recipe books...) but actually the only thing that I can't seem to get in Ocado are coconut aminos! I'm very happy with this book :-)

I have enjoyed Michelle's blog for some time and it was one of the motivators for my initial dive in to Paleo eating. The recipes in this book are familiar both in terms of content and presentation; cute cartoons and delicious photographs with well written and easy to comprehend recipes. This is an American book so expect the usual kitchen translations (cups, Fahrenheit etc.) but helpfully there is a set of conversion tables covering all of the number crunching you are likely to need.

The content is quite conversational and there might be too much anecdote for some people - have a read of the blog first to get a flavour.

Contents:

A good introduction to the Paleo Diet - foods to avoid, ration and enjoy freely are outlined.
An overview of some of the kitchen gizmos you might employ - nothing too weird here and none of it mandatory.
Stocking your kitchen/cupboards.

Building blocks - an overview of some staple things you can make e.g. Ghee, Paleo Mayonnaise, Salsas and sauces.
Nibbles - snacks and quick bites e.g. Apple Chips, Kale Chips, Roasted nuts
Salads & Soups e.g. Madras Chicken Salad, Coleslaw, Bone Broth
Eggs - lots of variations of classic egg based snacks and meals
Plants - Veggie sides/mains e.g. Courgette Noodles, Roasted Mushrooms, Sweet Potato Hash
Seafood - e.g. Spicy Coconut Shrimp, Mussels in Curry Broth.
Poultry - e.g. Chicken Nuggets, Slow Roasted Duck Legs.
Meat - e.g. Korean Short Ribs, Yankee Pot Roast
Treats - e.g. Cinnamon Apple Scones, Whipped Coconut Cream, Summer Berry Soup.

In summary, I use many of the recipes weekly and honestly the recipes are so easy to follow its difficult not to flick through and find something impressive sounding that is a doddle to make.

This is a super recipe book with a twist. It is easy to read and follow the recipes. The only down side for me is that Michelle Fong adds too much salt to each recipe for me. I have tried many recipes and adjusted the salt to my taste and they are superb.Thank you for taking the time to write this book.

If you are new to eating Paleo, or just in need of some new ideas, this is the book for you. It is fair to say that this is not just a recipe book - it is so much more. It is an A-Z guide of cooking, from the the most basic to the sublime and I guarantee it will have you in the kitchen eager to cook up a storm! It is charming, beautifully photographed, witty and informative, all without being too 'sciency'.

The step-by-step, clear photos for every recipe and funky illustrations throughout make this so easy to use. It seems they have combined fonts, photos and pictures perfectly, so that each page plays out its recipe without you having to laboriously pore over it. The recommendations for kitchen tools/utensils, supplies, sauces and spices and advice on how and when to use them is invaluable and a definite read if, like me, you have been debating on which essentials you really should have to help in the kitchen. There is plenty of nutritional advice in a nice, easy-to-read format and lots of tips on how to stay on track if you are trying to eat Paleo.

I have been eating Paleo for nearly two years and although my family are supportive, getting this book has been the catalyst to getting them to change their eating habits. My husband and daughter have finally ditched their cereal in favour of Maple Sausage Patties and we have had Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup 3 weeks running. We served it to our local greengrocer across the road (as she was intrigued by the mix of ingredients used) and she loved it too!

There is not a week that goes by now, without consulting and cooking from this book at least twice. My daughter loves the little cartoons in it and likes to read out the little captions on various pages when she's flicking through.

I have been eating paleo for about 18 months and have lost 4 1/2 stone and improved my health immensely. Until I bought this book I just got paleo recipes from the internet or adapted recipes from my other books. However I was tempted into buying this by the cute style of the book and the great reviews. I am so glad I bought it because it is lovely to look at and there is something more satisfying about reading a book rather than surfing the web.

I have made quite a few of the recipes and they have all been lovely. Basic paleo favourites like zoodles and cauliflower rice are included which makes it suitable for people who are new to paleo, but there are also more complex and unusual recipes for the more experienced. My absolute favourite is the peruvian chicken which is amazing. The instructions are easy to follow and there aren't too many wacky ingredients that are impossible to find. I love that the book has US and British measures and oven temp conversion chart at the back so that I can easily look up the info I need.

Overall I really love this book and I would highly recommend it.
