Hey guys, it’s Mike again, and welcome to the Paleo Recipe Book Review, a certified weight loss coach’s honest and unbiased take on Sebastien Noel’s paleo cookbook: The Paleo Recipe Book. If you’re interested in the paleo diet, primal diet, a low-carb lifestyle, or even just to move away from processed and unhealthy ingredients that saturate most cookbooks, I firmly believe that there is no better paleo cookbook out there. It contains hundreds of delicious and innovative recipes including my favorite: paleo meatballs. The Paleo Recipe Book review is below.

The review you are about to read contains the ESSENTIAL details you need to know before grabbing a copy of the recipe book yourself. I’ve purchased and used several similar cookbooks over the years but as you’ll soon see, most of them fall short. This is the one I recommend and use myself when I’m cooking paleo recipes.
So what exactly is The Paleo Recipe Book?
The Paleo Recipe Book Review is for a monstrous 409-page recipe book or cookbook that is chock-full of delicious and easy paleo meals for all occasions. It’s very comprehensive and organized so you can effortlessly browse through the recipes whether you’re looking for a specific dish or you just want to try something new.
When you download and open the recipe book, one of the first things you’ll see is the conveniently organized table of contents that splits the recipes into sections (which a whole recipe for a new dish on each page):
Pg. 15 \ Red Meat
Pg. 57 \ Pork
Pg. 76 \ Poultry
Pg. 103 \ Stews & curries
Pg. 132 \ Fish
Pg. 149 \ Shellfish & Seafood
Pg. 167 \ Vegetables & sides
Pg. 186 \ Salads
Pg. 223 \ Eggs & omelets
Pg. 210 \ Stir fries
Pg. 249 \ Snacks
Pg. 284 \ Soups & stocks
Pg. 265 \ Offal / Organs
Pg. 342 \ Dips & condiments
Pg. 300 \ Vinaigrettes, marinades & sauces
Pg. 395 \ Lacto-fermented vegetables
Pg.367 \ Breakfast & dessert
Pg.384 \ Smoothies
PLUS sections on conversion tables, doneness temperatures & roasting times, food list, finding food online, good fats, making clarified butter (ghee), rendering animal fat, and more! For a small sample of how to cook the perfect steak, which Sebastien goes over in the recipe book, check out my last post.
What are the BAD things about The Paleo Recipe Book?
Just like every book and product I have reviewed, nothing is perfect. Here are a few of the flaws and/or minor gripes I have with this product:
- If you are strict paleo and use no forms of dairy products, legumes, etc. there are a couple recipes in there that call for peas (technically a legume) and butter (dairy product, although one of the most digestively tolerated ones.) This really isn’t that big of a deal, as you can easily substitute them, but in defense of the hardcore paleo eaters out there, I thought I’d voice my disapproval for you.
What are the GOOD things about The Paleo Recipe Book?
- Its organization and aesthetic appeal are the best out of all the competitors I’ve reviewed. Almost every recipe has a beautiful picture, simple ingredient list, and detailed, step-by-step preparation and cooking instructions. Everything you’d expect from a top-notch cookbook.
- It has just under 400 recipes! That may seem intimidating at first, but since using the search feature on the top of the PDF makes finding the recipe you want a breeze. Or, if you know what ingredients you want to use, you can search them and discover all kinds of new and interesting recipes that contain those ingredients.
- Contains and Offal / Organ meats section. A lot of people don’t know this, but these are some of the most nutritious parts of the animal and are WAY cheaper to boot! Having a way to cook them in a savory recipe can add a ton of nutritional value to your diet as well as a ton of money back into your pocket. The sections on paleo snacks, smoothies, and desserts are really a treat as well
- There is a ton of variety with the recipes. Some have long lists of ingredients and instructions that more accomplished chefs and foodies will really enjoy, while others are short and sweet that are great for those with less experience in the kitchen or who are simply in a hurry. There really is something in this book for everyone
- It’s comprehensive. It doesn’t just have recipes like many other cookbooks. There are also sections on recommended foods to buy, how to cook the perfect steak, which fats are recommended to use, rendering animal fat and clarifying butter, which temperatures to cook meats until to achieve desired tenderness, etc. Sebastien gives you the tools and targeted information to become a more capable and knowledgeable force in the kitchen.
Overall, what do I think?
The Paleo Recipe Book is, in my opinion, the best paleo cookbook available to date. It’s beautiful, comprehensive, easy to use, and the recipes are absolutely delightful.
Paleo has never tasted so good! As a weight loss coach, I’ve learnt a lot from this recipe book and never tire of some of the recipes (especially the different kinds of paleo meatballs, my favorite!) There are some other good paleo cookbooks out there, but this one is head and shoulders above the rest and I recommend it to clients and those interested in the paleo diet, primal diet, a low-carb lifestyle, or eliminating the junk, processed, and genetically altered foods. It is also sold through ClickBank, a service with which I’ve had nothing but good experiences, and they offer an unconditional no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. So if you decide to buy a paleo recipe book, this one is well-worth considering.
