The BEST Whole30 & Paleo Cookbooks for Busy People
The title is so right, you’ll learn to cook EVERYTHING in this cookbook. For those interested in expanding their cooking skillset, I recommend this one (note: there aren’t any photos, just simple step-by-step instructions) and if you’re just starting out, get the How to Cook Everying: The Basics book (this one is FULL of photos!). Recipes aren’t strictly Whole30 or Paleo, but many are or can be very easily adapted. Check it out on Amazon Amazon.
This is both a cookbook and resource guide, that combines the Paleo approach with the low-carb/ketogenic diet. You’ll find all the tools you need to be successful on a ketogenic diet, along with advice and how-tos for using the keto template to eat intuitively. It also helps you create a personalized nutrition plan based. Get it on Amazon!
Don’t mind me tooting my own horn, but I’m a featured contributor in this Whole30 cookbook!! I have to say, it’s SO cool to see my face and two of my recipes inside a NYT Best Seller! Every Whole30 compliant recipe in this cookbook is unbelievably delicious and can be made in about 30 minutes. I think it’d make a great gift! Check it out on Amazon.
Coming in hot from Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo, this cookbook instantly became one of my all-time favorites. It’s filled with simple and delicious recipes, a lot of which can be made ahead of time. My favorite thing about it is her signature step-by-step follow-along instructions! Check it out on Amazon.
I really love the philosophy of the authors (one is an MD), and they include a ton of information, so there’s a lot to read in this cookbook besides the recipes. A great cookbook if you’re interested in learning a bit of the science behind Paleo living. Check it out on Amazon Amazon.
