It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! Today is the day that The Paleo Approach Cookbook is finally available in stores and from online retailers!!! Happy Release Day!!!!
This has been a very long labor of love. I started working on both books in October, 2012… yes, the creation of the New York Times Bestselling The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook have occupied the last nearly two years of my life. So, today is a very special day. I get to celebrate a massive project finally seen to fruition. I get to celebrate the accomplishment that is these two enormous and invaluable resources for the autoimmune disease community.
And boy, do I plan to celebrate! If you live in the Atlanta area and don’t mind last minute plans, come out to my Release Party tonight!!! All the details here.

Reviews of The Paleo Approach Cookbook
But, you don’t need to take my word for it! Here are quotes from and links to reviews which have been posted so far!!!!
|“If The Paleo Approach is the autoimmune bible, its sequel is the food bible. Not only does Sarah provide a complete list of foods to eat if you’re out to bring balance to your immune system, hormones, and gut flora and then explain where to find them and how to afford them, she also provides more than 200 recipes to get those foods onto your table and into your belly. I cannot speak highly enough of this cookbook. Get ready for some of the best food of your life!” – A Clean Plate|
|“Sarah has crafted a masterpiece. 400 pages of AIP Basics, kitchen tips, recipes, nutrient profiles, and beautiful photography. Whether you have mastered the AIP diet or are a newbie, this is a must buy. Cancel your standing appointments. Order this book. Overnight ship it and call in sick tomorrow, so you can spend the entire day reading and cooking and eating and reading and cooking and eating.”- Grazed and Enthused|
|“The beginning of the cookbook is full of helpful charts like meat cuts and cooking times, measurement conversions, grilling tips, oil smoke points, and alcohol burn-off times. It’s information helpful to any cook, Paleo or not… [The book] contains over 200 autoimmune-friendly recipes. [Sarah] will be the first to tell you that she writes BIG BOOKS! And they’re beautiful.” – Phoenix Helix|
|“This is more than a traditional Paleo cookbook. Consider this volume to be as much a resource (shopping, Fodmap alerts, meal plans, and over 100 pages of basic research and near-encyclopedic Paleo information) as it is a cookbook. For most Paleo people, or those who appreciate the Paleo attitude, this is a winner..” – John Koenig|
|“You can dive right into this book and get started, even if you haven’t read the first book or if you have little cooking experience. My favorite feature of all is that every recipe includes detailed nutritional information, right on the same page! And I don’t mean just basic information like how many calories or grams of fat. No, this is nutritional science for true nutrition geeks!” – Gutsy by Nature|
|“I was absolutely overjoyed to have received a [The Paleo Approach Cookbook], and am loving it! I cooked a bunch of the recipes [and] we ate well this weekend! And we feel amazing, also! Thanks so much Sarah Ballantyne (and her crew!) for your lovely and delicious cookbook! We loved it!” – Simple and Merry|
|“The recipes are nutritious, budget friendly, and well explained with an emphasis on nutrient dense, quality foods – all within the confines of the Paleo AIP. Quite an accomplishment! Beyond all the real food recipes in this book are also some snacks and treats that anyone will enjoy! Take these Plantain and Apple Fritters that I just made – they were devoured before I could say The Paleo Approach Cookbook is awesome!” – Real Food Forager|
|“I love the meal plans and shopping guides. Sometimes the grocery store can seem overwhelming especially when you are on a restrictive diet. Sarah breaks it down to make AIP a manageable lifestyle.” – Plaid and Paleo|
|“This book gives the perfect amount of information and application, allowing you to follow the diet and be successful even if you aren’t ready to dive into the whys’ behind every element. You no longer have to wonder if there will be anything left for you to eat because there are over 200 recipes staring you in the face, there is even a section of treats for events like birthdays and holidays.” – Sweet Potatoes and Social Change|
|Sarah’s recipes are written so that anyone can follow the steps simply and correctly, and end up with a delicious meal. Some recipes are a bit divergent from mainstream cooking (fritters that may replace pancakes, for example–awesome, btw), but the bulk of the recipes are simply good old-fashioned protein and vegetable combinations, stepped up with appetizing flavor combinations and subtle substitutions to keep autoimmune flares at bay. -Dare You To Blog|
|Sarah is an incredibly meticulous researcher & writer & that style applies to her cookbook too. Using a dietary & lifestyle protocol as restrictive as this one can feel isolating, but with yet another incredible resource from Sarah I am again reminded that I can find health & still eat scrumptious food. –Alt-Ternative Autoimmune|
|Sarah’s book truly gives you all you need to start (or continue on) your AIP journey. I was most impressed by the extreme range of foods offered in her book. If you are in a rut with your meals, this book will certainly force you out! –He Won’t Know It’s Paleo|
|While The Paleo Approach was masterfully put together with an incredible amount of information, made easily understandable by Sarah’s own diagrams and illustrations, the companion cookbook is equally the treasure trove of gourmet recipes. –Bedrock Living|
