Nikki Young Paleo Cookbooks Review
What is it?
Paleo Cookbooks is a downloadable ebook by Nikki Young, containing hundreds of paleo recipes from snacks to main courses and desserts. Nikki asserts that the paleo diet is not another created fad diet but rather it is one ‘designed by nature’. The premise of the paleo diet, otherwise known as the caveman diet, goes back to basics eliminating the refined and processed food of the modern day in favour of consuming wholesome nutritious ingredients that are the natural diet of man. Nikki claims that by following a paleo diet, followers will not only lose weight but increase their energy levels, improve their immune system and enjoy clearer, smoother skin.
Many bloggers have cited Nikki Young’s Paleo Cookbooks as the best paleo recipe book on the market and looking to independent forums, followers of the diet also seem to agree. Compared to other paleo cookbooks on the market, customers appreciated the colour pictures in Nikki’s cookbook alongside a variety of easy and surprisingly tasty recipes. American rower and record breaker Ursula Grobler singled out the recipe for homemade focaccia bread as one of her favourites, which uses alternative flours in order to stay within the paleo diet guidelines. As well as featuring standard paleo recipes such as omelettes and traditional meat/fish vegetable dishes, customers really enjoyed the special recipe section which includes recipes for the modern hunter gather, incorporating favourites such as chocolate, noodles and the paleo friendly capsicum sandwich.
This recipe book seems to have attracted two groups of people. Firstly, there’s the converted paleo followers who are already used to the diet but are looking for some new recipes to add to their repertoire. These customers seemed to be very satisfied with the book. The second group buying this book are completely or relatively new to the paleo diet, and whilst they did not dispute that the meals were varied and tasty, many found that they craved the eliminated food groups such as dairy and grains. The customers that stuck with the diet said that they did start to see and feel the benefits in as little as one week, but for others eliminating favourites such as takeaways, pasta and cheese was just too extreme. Whilst Nikki advocates the paleo diet as part of your lifestyle, it is possible to use the recipes in this book as and when you desire. Some customers said that they tried to follow the paleo diet when they cooked at home but did not deprive themselves of the odd takeaway or eating out.
Is it a scam?
In 2001, Loren Cordain published The Paleo Diet, in which he explains that humans have not adapted to eat all the foods that have entered our diet within the last 10,000 years such as grains and processed food. He therefore asserts that humans should stick to the diet of prehistoric man, which consisted of meat, fish, seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Since Loren’s book, the paleo diet has become one of the most popular diets with new guides and recipe books appearing each year to keep up with the demand.
Despite it’s popularity however, nutritionists and scientists debate on how good the benefits really are. Whilst everyone seems to concur that eliminating refined sugars and processed food out of your diet is very beneficial to your overall health and weight loss, some experts have questioned the total elimination of dairy and grains from your diet that can cause calcium deficiency and constipation. It’s also important to note that nutritionists advise that people eat fruit and vegetables for three quarters of their diet and lean protein and healthy fats for the remaining quarter, guidance which is often ignored on the paleo diet where people interpret it as a green light to consume vast quantities of meat.
Whilst Nikki Young’s paleo cookbook is by no means a scam, those who wish to instil a paleo diet must actively ensure that they get the ratio of meat and fats to vegetables and fruit correct in order to truly reap the benefits. There are many dairy free foods that contain calcium such as almonds and kale, and by including plenty of crunchy vegetables and fruit you can be sure to get your daily fibre intake too.
In a nutshell, this is a thorough paleo recipe book with loads of ideas of how to cook simple and tasty dishes within paleo guidelines. Whether you choose to wholeheartedly follow the paleo diet or supplement it with the odd dairy or grain is completely up to you but if you’d like to lose weight and improve your health the main elimination from your diet should be processed and refined foods.
