The Paleo Chef By Pete Evans

Acclaimed international chef and television personality Pete Evans takes a whole new approach to making gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free meals that are worthy of a restaurant but effortless to prepare. More and more people are discovering the health benefits of the Paleo lifestyle by cutting out processed, sugary foods and instead eating quality proteins and fats, fresh vegetables and fruits, and nuts and seeds. However, following this way of eating doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor or spending a long time in the kitchen. In The Paleo Chef, Evans provides more than 100 recipes for gorgeous food that is satisfying, distinctive, and good for you, including Kale Hummus, Vietnamese Chicken Wings, and Key Lime Tart. Each and every one of Evans’s innovative recipes pops with flavor and is brought to life with stunning, full-color photography. Living—and eating—the Paleo lifestyle has never been so effortless and so delicious.

I could not wait to get this book, the recipes and the Introduction were what I was so excited about.
Sad to say that only a few of the recipes were ones I would want to cook. The Introduction was very informative and helpful, you will learn a little bit about Ghee and Raw honey. There is a page about the power of fermented foods.
The pictures were fantastic through out the whole book.
The ingredients were not always in my pantry that made it a little frustrating .
I would have to say that this was a disappointing 3.5 star book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.


  1. Thanks for your honest review! Not a book that would interest me.
