How often have you wished you had paleo cookbooks of one sort or another to hand? Often, always, occasionally, or never? If you are like me and used to make dishes up from the ingredients that you had available at the time then you would not have had much use for cookbooks. Although of course I did use cookbooks in my early days of cooking. By not using paleo cookbooks when you are first starting out on the paleo trail you run the risk of using non paleo ingredients. When you do this you are unlikely to get the health and weight results that you were expecting to achieve.
It stands to reason that when you are trying a new style of cooking you may need some help initially. This is where cookbooks, and in particular paleo cookbooks, come into their own. For those that have been cooking paleo for some time they may not use their paleo cookbooks anymore, but they have always got them for reference when needed.
As you develop your paleo leanings you may feel like experimenting with foods for you and your family. Keep an eye on the ingredients you are using and just how paleo they are considered to be. With any luck you will come across a new flavor that you and your family like. Yes there are likely to be some disasters in the taste stakes but you can learn from your mistakes. As an example I like what is classed as an English curry. This is a normal curry, but with the addition of fruit to sweeten it up and in my opinion give it more flavor. You can also experiment with different flavorings to find something that you really like.
If you are a good cook or a chef well into the paleo phase you may like to try your hand at developing a paleo cookbook. There are many available but there is always room for more.
