Paleo cookbooks - which is your favorite?

I've only read one, so I can't offer any advice as to favorite... However, I read Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook by Sarah Fragoso, and I thought it was pretty good. I made a couple of recipes and thought they worked well. My favorite was acorn squash stuffed with a ground meat/pear/thyme mixture. Really delicious, if a bit time consuming.


I'm relatively new to the primal/paleo way of eating. It was a shock to see their recommended weekly shopping list in the first chapter of the book. It would cost a MINT to buy all of those ingredients, and I would feel totally overwhelmed. I don't know how one family could consume that much food in a week. But she had some good suggestions on planning ahead and making ahead to save time. Also, a lot of her recipes build on basic recipes (the homemade mayo recipe comes to mind, but there were others I just can't think of) so if you're not interested in doing the initial recipe, you're out of luck for some of the later recipes.


Also, I agree that I'm not interested in using alternative ingredients for baked goods. This book didn't include a bunch of recipes that substitute almond flour, etc. so I thought that was a plus in favor of this book.
