    I want to offer a different perspective than some I have read. I have been AIP for nearly four years and have to keep to it religiously - no nuts, fruit, sugar, wheat, dairy, on and on and on. It gets boring. And very limiting. Often overwhelming. I SO appreciate being able to take a cookbook and pick out the recipes I want to try without having to change things up or get disappointed when I realize it has ingredients I can't eat.

I have been AIP for nearly four years and have to keep to it religiously - no nuts, fruit, sugar, wheat, dairy, on and on and on. It gets boring. And very limiting. Often overwhelming. I SO appreciate being able to take a cookbook and pick out the recipes I want to try without having to change things up or get disappointed when I realize it has ingredients I can't eat. I have tried recipes from the book and they are delicious! One did not sound particularly appetizing (a dessert with no sugar, come on) and it was awesome! Even my non-AIP teens wanted me to make it again. I would have bought the book for that recipe alone. Some of these recipes I won't make for various reasons but that is no different from any other recipe book and some are too complicated for those who are sick (I remember those days). But for those who have felt relief and have more energy, this book is fantastic addition to your cookbook shelf. And for those who do eat offal, here is a place that combines both taste and healing benefits you won't find elsewhere. The AIP is a challenging diet modality and Sarah is the one who has the depth of knowledge and willingness to share like no one else in the space. She has created recipes that are unique in their creativity and taken the AIP to a whole new level. I applaud her for that.

    I want to love this book, I really do. I love Sarah Ballantyne, but this book is ridiculous to use unless you have a huge kitchen that is stocked with all sorts of gadgets (dehydrators, spiralizers, slow cookers, etc) and you live in an upscale hip urban area where you can find plantain flour, kudzu, umeboshi, etc. The recipes look amazing and delicious, but I don't want to have to visit three grocery stores AND place an order on Amazon.com just to get dinner on the table.

    I received The Paleo Approach Cookbook: a Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul a few days ago and I’ve been thumbing through the pages, marking the recipes I have to try. As the title suggests, this is a detailed guide, much more than a cookbook. Written by Sarah Ballantyne, a PhD with a doctorate in medical biophysics. Sarah spent several years studying innate immunity and the causes of inflammation in the body before retiring to become a stay-at-home mom. Much of her research I received The Paleo Approach Cookbook: a Detailed Guide to Heal Your Body and Nourish Your Soul a few days ago and I’ve been thumbing through the pages, marking the recipes I have to try. As the title suggests, this is a detailed guide, much more than a cookbook. Written by Sarah Ballantyne, a PhD with a doctorate in medical biophysics. Sarah spent several years studying innate immunity and the causes of inflammation in the body before retiring to become a stay-at-home mom. Much of her research was predicated on finding cures for her own autoimmune disorder. After her second daughter was born, she experimented with a Paleo lifestyle and being a cooking enthusiast, she created her immensely popular blog The Paleo Mom. The Paleo Approach follows her acclaimed The Paleo Approach, and in this more than 400-page cookbook she has 12 chapters covering The Basics, In the Kitchen, Meal Plans and Shopping Lists, Kitchen Staples and the recipes. In the first five chapters she provides a wealth of information about wise food choices, gray areas, even how to store foods for better shelf/refrigerator life. There’s a section on the essential cooking tools and on managing your time in the kitchen, extremely helpful since the Paleo journey often means spending more time preparing and cooking your Real Food. I was particularly interested in her section on simple cooking substitutions, especially helpful for adapting favorite non-Paleo recipes to a Paleo format. Sarah’s approach to cooking is to insure a variety of tasty recipes that make the healing process enjoyable. She offers recipes for each course, accompanied by beautiful photos and a sidebar of nutritional facts where you can find information on which food might bring on flare-ups of a specific condition so you’ll know what to avoid. The Crab-stuffed Mushroom Caps (p. 158) in the Appetizers, Snacks and Salads chapter are especially good with their combination of crabmeat, diced avocado and green onion stuffing. I also enjoyed the Guacamole (p. 171) with a hint of truffle salt to heighten the umami flavor. In Meats and Poultry I loved the Leg of Lamb with Mint Vinegar (p. 206), a reminder of my British heritage. I admit to not being enamored of offal, save tongue and sweetbreads, but if you like beef heart, there’s a Stuffed Heart Roast (p. 276) with a mélange of diced onion, mushrooms and spinach. In the Sweet Treats and Beverages chapter, I have earmarked Honeydew Ice “Cream” (p. 340)to try as soon as I finish my Whole30 challenge. Following the more than 200 recipes is a must-read resources section, easily showing the science behind Dr. Ballantyne’s research. The photos are enticing and the cooking instructions easy to follow. Make this one of your “must-have” cookbooks.

    If you're just beginning the Paleo diet, this book is the perfect way to start becoming more confident - and a bit more adventurous - in your cooking. I'm actually on my way to the Westside Market to buy various internal organs - which I never thought I'd do. That said, I didn't rate this book with 5 stars, because it managed to get me excited about eating cow heart - although that's definitely noteworthy.

I'm actually on my way to the Westside Market to buy various internal organs - which I never thought I'd do. That said, I didn't rate this book with 5 stars, because it managed to get me excited about eating cow heart - although that's definitely noteworthy. It's actually the smaller elements that made it successful. I do want to point out, however, that I'm reading the ebook version. I'll admit that some of the formatting is a bit wonky, and it's also a really lengthy book. I can see how it could get a bit cumbersome if you have a printed version. In the ebook format, everything is hyperlinked, so it's probably a lot easier to navigate and to find what you're looking for. The book in general is like your one-stop shop for paleo cooking. Every recipe includes nutrition facts, substitution methods and helpful tips & tricks for ensuring success. There are even meal plans, shopping lists and guides for how best to utilize your local farmers' markets, grocery stores, butchers and everything in between. You'll also learn a lot about how your body processes nutrients, how to properly store produce, and how to "trick" your kids into eating liver. If you're looking for a book that will teach you not only how to cook, but how to cook in a way that's exciting, nutritious and new, pick this up. And don't be surprised if your family starts getting jazzed about cricket flour pancakes and deep fried fish heads. Unorthodox? Maybe. But if those are just a bit too daring at first, you can always start with a more traditional dish like succulent honey-garlic slow roasted pork shoulder. Read it, and eat.

    I've never had a cookbook that gave you so much nutritional detail as Sarah's. I love all the recipes she has for offal. As a child, we use to eat much more of that in my house but as I grew older, that seemed to fall out of favor. Her hidden liver meatloaf is one of my favorites. It's tasty and nutritious and you'd never guess there was liver in it. She has also introduced me to all the ways you can use plantains. I never realized what a versatile fruit this is.

    I read the author's huge first book that detailed the science behind the Autoimmune protocol and the reasoning behind all of the food eliminations. I'm glad she wrote a cookbook to go along with that to help us follow the AIP guidelines. The first part of the book gives a mini-lesson on what foods to include and avoid on the AIP.

I realize the author is trying to give complete food lists and apparently insects have lots of protein and nutrients, but I really could have done without seeing edible insects in print. That said, I'm planning to try several of the recipes in this book (lots of the recipes seem reasonable and not too weird or allow you to swap in "normal" ingredients instead).

    I let all the bad reviews of this cookbook stop me from buying it at first. I read The Paleo Approach: Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body and started the protocol a few weeks ago. It was easy enough to make stews and have salads for most meals, but I needed more ideas. Because this cookbook had so many bad reviews and complaints about specialty ingredients, I ended up buying The Healing Kitchen: 175+ Quick & Easy Paleo Recipes to Help You Thrive instead.

Because this cookbook had so many bad reviews and complaints about specialty ingredients, I ended up buying The Healing Kitchen: 175+ Quick & Easy Paleo Recipes to Help You Thrive instead. That one had the "easy" recipes that looked good, and I spent a week or two making a bunch of the recipes. Then I realized that The Healing Kitchen was really lacking in ideas for offal and seafood. We were eating mostly sweet potatoes and chicken... and chicken is supposed to be limited on AIP. So I went back and bought this book. And I was surprised by how wonderfully it's laid out! Each recipe has nutritional information, modification ideas, and FODMAP adjustments. Since we are also avoiding fodmaps right now, that was incredibly helpful. My husband had trouble getting through the entire Paleo Approach book. It can be way too overwhelming for someone who hasn't cooked much before. But he really wanted to be on board and be able to make a few meals. This book has a thorough introduction that reviews the major points of the AIP, includes definitions of cooking terms for new cooks, and gives lots of tips and ideas for people who might be new to cooking from scratch. You could easily read ONLY this book, and still have all the major points of AIP and the meal plans and recipes. I regret that I didn't just buy this one first! But I'm also happy to have both books on my shelves, as they both have a lot of excellent recipes and ideas.

    I consider myself to be somewhat of a foodie. As an avid cook, I am not one to use cookbooks, but now that I am not eating like I used to, having a resource of over 200 recipes that I know are within my guidelines is priceless.

It has been hard to give up so many of the foods I love, but the Paleo Approach Cookbook has helped me realize there is a whole other world of food to be discovered. Knowing I needed to do the autoimmune protocol was very daunting. The amazing recipes in this book have made it possible for me to not cheat and stick with the program, which builds confidence and motivation to keep going. As you may know snacking on the AIP diet can be hard, the plantain crackers are amazing and don't require a dehydrator to make. I love treats and the Carob Ganache Mini Tort was a hit when having guests for dinner. Paired with the raspberries, is was just the right combination of sweet with no added sweeteners, and deep rich flavor. My favorite so far is the Sweet and Sour Beef Heart Jerky. My awesome butcher sliced the meat for me on the deli slicer. While it can be challenging to get offal into the diet this was a yummy way to add those super nutrients and have a great snack. Next up, the pancakes with the super protein packed cricket flour. What? Yep, insects. Gotta love this adventurous Dr. Ballantyne! I have wanted to improve my health and change my lifestyle habits for the last few years and kind of had an idea of what to do but was lacking motivation. I was experiencing a range of symptoms including joint/muscle pain, extreme fatigue, chronic infections, hair loss, digestive upset, skin rashes/hives, and weight gain. My doctor couldn't offer me any real support. I wasn't sure exactly what I should be eating, but I knew I needed to change my diet for good. Well, it's working! Overall health and energy has greatly improved and it has been less than 30 days so far. I am so thankful for this cookbook and all the great ideas.

    This is about the Autoimmune Protocol, as it's called, which grew out of the Paleo world. Despite the title, it's not the same as the Paleo diet.

As far as I currently know, I don't have an autoimmune disease (unless I have arthritis, waiting for test results, but in any case it isn't severe), but I do know that I have leaky gut, which she says is proven to be often the cause (and if not the cause, then part of the vicious cycle) of autoimmune disease. Also AIP guidelines are similar to what I have discovered for myself over the years, with elimination diets and panel tests and so on. GAPS and SCD both include eggs and dairy, despite a few warnings here and there about them, and I think that's foolhardy; for people with these problems, highly reactive foods should either be removed or be only present as an occasional treat. Anyway, I know for sure I can't normally eat eggs and dairy, tomatoes or soy. And it's such a relief to find sources of recipes where they aren't even present. Of course sometimes one can make substitutions, but these diets already stress your willpower, so the fewer instances of willpower stress the better. One thing AIP lacks is a way to address gut dysbiosis, microbe overgrowth, including candida. Probiotics are not enough on their own, when someone has a problem the excess microbes must be starved out. This book does have a lot of low-FODMAP recipes and two weeks worth of low-FODMAP meal plans, so that goes pretty far. They don't address ease of digestion the way SCD/GAPS does, so it can be worthwhile to layer diets if one can stand it. The most important thing about this cookbook--as far as I have tried them so far, the recipes are great! Also check out Mickey Trescott's AIP cookbook. I'm very happy to have come across these resources.

    Sarah Ballantyne is my new hero. It is amazing what she has put together between this and The Paleo Approach. She is incredibly thorough, and she leaves no stone unturned. Her science background gives me confidence, and her willingness to go the whole nine yards with animal protein calls me to be brave and adventurous in the kitchen. I really appreciate the many notes about fodmaps and variations. On the one hand I think it's too daunting for a beginner coming from the SAD diet. On the other han Sarah Ballantyne is my new hero.

It is similar to Nourishing Traditions in its promotion of traditional cooking, but strategically tailored to be more appropriate for those with gut and autoimmune disorders. I would describe her contributions to the nutrition world as groundbreaking.

    I haven't tried everything in this book yet, but the intro material explains a lot about leaky gut and how to heal it with food choices. Autoimmune paleo eating is so much more complicated than plain paleo eating, and cutting out nightshades means making things from scratch. There was a good substitute for many of our favorites including sausage without seed spices or peppers, salad dressings without seeds and peppers, BBQ sauce without tomato, carob instead of chocolate, and onward.

There's a companion book to this with even more background in it, which is also excellent. But this book is a great way to take theory into practice.

    For me, cooking isn’t just a hobby it’s a way to life. Getting and staying healthy with autoimmune disease isn’t easy. The Paleo Approach Cookbook is a must have for people like me. The layout is not only beautiful but you will find all the information needed to get on with your life. Stop wasting time trying to figure everything out on your own; Sarah Ballantyne has already done the hard work for you! The Paleo Approach Cookbook is truly a tool for success.

    Absolutely love this cookbook. The layout is wonderful, the photos colorful, and the recipes are delicious. After following the Auto Immune Protocol for over a year, I was definitely ready for new, more in depth, flavor recipes, and Sarah did not fail. Her recipes vary from every day ingredients in some recipes to the very unique in others. I've already put several recipes to the test and have not been disappointed. This is definitely going to be a cookbook I go to often.

    This book is Beautiful! It is excellent for beginners (cooking or AIP) as it is filled with clear explanations of techniques and science. The meal plans with shopping lists and suggestions on prep-ahead are wonderful time savers. I adore the recipe index with thumbnails of all the food. The recipes are clear and tempting. I recommend this for every kitchen!

    This book is EXTREMELY helpful! Many of the recipes are somewhat complicated, but many more work for someone with limited time. I can't thank Sarah enough for getting this cookbook out to those struggling with autoimmune issues...it's a lifesaver - maybe literally! Personally, even the more difficult recipes may be possible for me to try in the future - eating well should be life-long!

    The recipes in this book are wonderful. I love trying new, healthy, clean foods and this book doesn't disappoint. I'm new to the Autoimmune world and I couldn't survive w/o Sarah (The Paleo Mom). The wonton soup alone is totally worth this book.

    An excellent autoimmune recipe book that complements the in-depth information found in the author's first book. The first book explains the reason behind all the guide lines. In the recipe book there are quick, short explanations, good to get reminded as the food is being cooked up.
