I’m a 32 y/o woman and recently became interested in the paleo food plan, hoping to improve painful joint inflammation, autoimmune issues and diverticulitis. I find this book to be very helpful and informative. After two months of following the guidelines suggested for my specific conditions I do believe that certain foods were contributing to some of my discomfort. I feel much better – less pain, more energy, and have lost 20 lbs. I haven’t missed ditching the grain because reducing pain and losing weight feels better than the best whole grain product ever tasted!

I like to cook and have made many of the recipes. Right now I am cooking the Balsamic Braised Beef Short Ribs in my crockpot. Second time I’ve made them and they are delicious.- made them for company last time and got rave reviews. I served them with the Candied Carrots and Fauxtato (cauliflower) Mash.

Don’t be afraid to try something different. You might be pleasantly surprised. I certainly was.
