Description:

A little paleo goes a long way . . .

 

‘Happy Go Paleo is exactly what the name suggests: an easy-going, relaxed approach to the paleo diet. I love paleo as a lifestyle, a diet focused on whole foods, a simpler way of living, spending more time outdoors and getting fit through functional movement. I want other people to discover my 80/20 paleo philosophy and how fantastic it can make you feel.’

 

In this book, internationally renowned blogger Irena Macri creates complete paleo meals to show how accessible healthy eating can be. Here are over 100 of Irena’s best recipes of whole foods, good-quality protein, nuts and seeds. Fun to make, delicious to eat and using everyday ingredients, all recipes are gluten free and refined sugar free to help you craft your own paleo and healthy eating journey!

  1. This sounds like a very flexible kind of cookbook, Carol, and I think that’s great. People are more likely to eat wisely and well if it’s affordable and relatively easy to do. And some of those recipes sound delicious!
