The Paleo Cookbook

Eating the food your body was designed to thrive on and stay healthy

This is not your average cook book. During my first glance through Sébastien's phenomenal new cooking guide I was blown away by the shear volume of helpful cooking information it contains. This isn't just a collection of delicious Paleo recipes (of which it contains well over 300!), it's also an indispensable guide on how to master the preparation of various complicated dishes.

Want to know how to cook the perfect steak? Check. Make your own homemade stock? Check. Curious about lacto-fermenting foods? Check. That doesn't even begin to crack the surface. The 8 week meal plan will help any paleo newbie stick to a healthy eating plan, while the comprehensive herb and spice guide will start you on your way to becoming a wiz in the kitchen.


I was pleasantly surprised by The Paleo Recipe Book, and I think you will be too. Do your mouth and stomach a favor, and check this out.

What is a Paleo Diet?

As humans, we have spent most of our time on this planet adapting to the food we ate before the Agricultural Revolution: animal foods, wild vegetables, fruits in season, along with limited amounts of nuts and seeds. Our bodies are built to consume these foods, but this is not what our diets look like today. Paleo is based on the idea that this mismatch between our bodies and our diet might be the reason for modern health problems like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Just like any other animal, humans suffer when we stray from our natural diet, but when we return to it, everything changes. Food stops making us sick, and starts making us strong, energetic, and vibrant with health.

1. Avoid toxic foodsToxic foods include:

  • Grains (wheat, rye, barley, oats, brown rice, …)
  • Legumes (soy beans, peanuts, chickpeas, kidney beans, …)
  • Vegetable seed oils (soybean oil, peanut oil, corn oil, canola oil, …)
  • Added sugar (sodas, candies, cakes, fruit juices, …). Some sugar from natural sources like fruits is perfectly fine.
  • Sources of dairy high in protein (casein) and sugar (lactose) and low in healthy butter-fat.



2. Eat nutrient-rich foods

You can eat a vast array of vegetables, (including root and starchy vegetables), meat, poultry, fish, seafood, healthy fats, eggs and fruits. Nuts and seeds are good too, but too many can be problematic. Focus on eating a variety of foods that are high in vitamins and minerals.These include:Organ meats (liver, kidney, bone marrow, heart, brain, …)

  • Leafy green vegetables (spinach, kale, swiss chard, arugula, …)
  • Meat from grass-fed ruminants (beef, bison, lamb, …)
  • Mollusks and other seafood (oysters, mussels, wild salmon, sardines, …)
  • Egg yolks;
  • Bone broth;
  • Fermented foods (sauerkraut, kimchi, …);


3. Optimize your Lifestyle

Evolutionary history can teach us about more than just food! Lifestyle changes can help keep your digestive system healthy, your body strong and resilient and your immune system primed to face down viruses and bacteria.
Get frequent sun exposure or supplement vitamin D when sun is not an option;

  • Reduce and manage stress in your life;
  • Implement healthy sleeping habits;
  • Get frequent and healthy exercise;


Sleep, stress management and exercise are the big three elements, other than diet, that are most important for optimal health.
