The Paleo diet has become popular over the past few years but it can be overwhelming to sift through information found online and books. This book, Paleo for Unicorns: Eat the Patriarchy, helps the Paleo novice sort through the ins and outs of the lifestyle and helps make it less overwhelming for those just starting this change. Written in a relatable, irreverent, and downright hilarious style, author Amy Subach breaks down what’s important to keep in mind when following a paleo diet.

One of the best parts about the cookbook was the author’s emphasis on eating well most of the time, engaging in self-care, and acknowledging that perfection with the diet and life was not a realistic goal. The cookbook overall consists of basic concepts, general meal planning, and recipes. The recipes themselves are easy to follow and do not require many special ingredients or time. The recipes are broken down into breakfasts, main meals, sides, and desserts. The recipes that were tried by this writer were good and easy to follow – the cucumber and tomato salad was easy and tasteful and the chocolate chip cookies were excellent and husband-approved. This was an excellent and funny guide and cookbook to those who are starting out on the Paleo diet and who need some guidance for basic concepts and meals to get started. Paleo for Unicorns: Eat the Patriarchy is highly recommended.
