Healthy Paleo Cookbooks?

I love the ideas in Paleo cookbooks - a lot of the substitutions are super-healthy.  But many of the cookbooks have stunningly unhealthy recipes; it's as if the authors stick within the rules of the Paleo diet but then make the recipes as unhealthy as possible in order to keep readers happy.  I care about finding recipes that are really healthy.  What are some Paleo cookbooks with very healthy recipes?  (My favourite at the moment is "Well-Fed".)

This is a pretty good recipe book. It has a few recipes at the back for times when you can't be paleo (you'll see what i mean if you get it), but otherwise they recipes are all excellent and pretty tasty. The best suggestion is cauliflower rice. Same consistency as normal rice, but it's cauliflower:

Steaks with mushrooms and red wine reduction recipe

Serves 2-4

Ingredients
  • 2 large T-bone steaks;
  • About 3 tbsp cooking fat;
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms, chopped (I used Shiitake and button mushrooms combined, but whatever you prefer will work just fine);
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped;
  • ¾ cup red wine;
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;
Preparation
  1. Take your steaks out of the refrigerator for an hour or two prior to cooking to bring them as close to room temperature as possible.
  2. With your steaks at room temperature, sprinkle them with salt and pepper on both side. Also rub the steaks with some of the cooking fat.
  3. Place a large skillet over a medium-high heat and add the steaks when the skillet is really hot.
  4. Cook on both sides for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until desired doneness. Once the steaks are cooked to the desired doneness, remove them from the skillet and set aside.
  5. Using the same skillet (without cleaning it) add another tablespoon of cooking fat. Add the mushrooms and green onion and saute for a few minutes. I like to cook the mushrooms long enough so that any moisture that was released from them has evaporated so that it does not dilute the richness of the sauce. This will take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the size and type of mushrooms. Add the wine and thyme and bring the sauce to a simmer. Allow it to cook this way for about 3 to 4 minutes, until the wine has reduced somewhat.
  6. Place your steaks on a generous sized plate and pour the delicious mushroom and red wine sauce over them. Enjoy!

Not too sure about red wine in the paleo diet though, but the steaks are definitely a winner!

I have found Sarah Fragoso's Everyday Paleo to be helpful.  :)  And yes, Nom Nom Paleo is a great resource as well. Check out FastPaleo.com also.

I was wondering if it's possible to follow a primarily plant-based diet and still be paleo.  It looks like many of the recipes are meat based.  A friend of mine is on this diet and has done very well, has lost over 20 pounds already.

It is possible, but its a little tricky. I was vegetarian for 15 years until earlier this year. I started paleo while i was still veggo, it was do-able but i felt i was livng off eggs for my protein! My body started craving meat, and so i decided to give it a try, and haven't looked back. Keeping if plant based is alright if you are ok with nightshades, but if you are trying to avoid them, it might get a bit monotenous. Give it a shot!

Thanks Amy! I'm going to give it some thought. I don't eat eggs and quinoa can only go so far lol! Thanks for the input :-)
