    Michelle makes cooking fun with this cookbook. Cartoons and diagrams for illustrating. Easy to follow instructions. I've been waiting on this one for awhile. She brings Umami to every meal. I highly recommend this cookbook. I was not disappointed.

    I don't follow a paleo diet but a close friend of mine does and he loves it! Other than hearing it referred to as the “caveman diet”, I don't know a whole lot about it. This is exactly why I took advantage of the opportunity to read Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans. Food blogger, cookbook author, family chef (and former pharmacist): Michelle Tam provides an educational introduction for newbies about the what and why of paleo, along with 153 doa...

    Having switched to a primal/paleo lifestyle in 2012, I’m always looking for cookbooks that sup-port this eating plan and quite frankly, some have been better than others. After a family member recommended Nom Nom Paleo, I decided to visit author and food blogger Michelle tam’s web-site to check for myself. After reading her candid and often humorous blog and trying a couple of the recipes, I ordered her book from the publisher.Was I in for a ...

    It's quirky and fun. Full of real information without being too heady. Would be great for a beginning cook or someone with seasoned skills. She breaks it down for you and gives you real life. Photography and stories are great. I have never made a Nom Nom recipe that I didn't like... always packed with flavor. Even if you are not in need of a dairy or wheat free cook book... or have no intention to jump on the Paleo wagon this book is still a MUST...

    This is my new favorite cookbook. The graphics, photography, and organization make the book beautiful, entertaining, and easy to read. The authors, as on their blog, have a trustworthy yet down-to-earth writing style. Their humor keeps the tone light and healthy because - as you fellow real fooders know - preparing 21 meals a week is a lot of work!The book begins with an introduction to paleo eating, including the author's personal story and list...

    This is the first cookbook I have read cover to cover in one sitting. It is a quirky, funny, informative cookbook on eating Paleo. Although I don't plan on "going Paleo" any time soon, I am totally making my own mayo and kick ass bone broth!

    I'm the type of person who will repeatedly buy fresh produce and protein in a spurt of optimism, only to let them decay quietly in the fridge as my good intentions fade away. This cookbook has really helped me to get over this fatal flaw :) Every recipe I've made from Food for Humans has been a hit, which keeps me coming back to try more!I've recently returned to the Paleo lifestyle to support my husband, who is trying to commit to it for the fir...

    Having an allergy to soy, to most dairy by extension, and un-pinpointed issues with wheat/gluten type grains, I find paleo a very useful trend. Nomnompaleo.com was a site I ran across a couple years ago after my diagnosis and I've been following it ever since, so I'm familiar with the look and feel of Tam's writing style, which is both casual and generally informative; the kind of writing where I enjoy reading the latest post even if the recipe d...

    1) Easy to follow - Step by step pictures, detailed descriptions and/or explanations; makes the entire cooking process very easy.2) Many 1-step recipes - E.g. Ghee-coated kale/mushroom chips: just put them in the oven and you're done!3) Inspirational - I was struck by many how 'bout I do that to so-and-so food item moments while reading this.4) Some neat and novel ideas - E.g. Dicing mushrooms releases their aroma! Who'd have thought! And zucchin...

    Great recipes! Great intro to paleo with delicious recipes & pictures to prove it! I'm vegan but my husband isn't so this book was great for both of us!

    This is a book formatted for fun. Very visually appealing. I have tried one or two recipes from this book. They were good. Lots of Asian dishes which is great, but I need some variety.

    I made one recipe out of the books that I liked, but I really can’t see myself making a lot more. They look good and the photos in the book are great. Good instructions.

    A really great cookbook with delicious recipes, and easy to learn but necessary advanced kitchen skills. I love the spectrum of food you get with Michelle- Thai, Korean, French, Italian. It also shows you how great cooking with fresh foods can be (even if you aren't paleo, or refuse to pay for grassfed beef, there are good healthy recipes in here!), and her introduction on kitchen and weekly planning makes it all relatively easy.My only beef (hah...

    This is a good beginner cookbook for those interested in the Paleo diet. It is a fun read with beautiful photography. If you expect challenging recipes or recipes that aren't already on the Nom Nom Paleo blog, you will be disappointed. One big gripe (and a reason for 3 stars instead of 4) is that there is no calculated nutritional content. It's a terrible oversight, considering that nutritional content would take the writer very little time to ca...

    Ever since I was officially diagnosed with celiac disease, started cross-fit training, and generally had to do a lifestyle overhaul, Michelle Tam's blog and now her amazing cookbook and iPad app, have been by my side. She's my go to gal for all things Paleo. She makes cooking fun and shows that it doesn't have to be very time consuming at all. Her recipes are easy to follow, look amazing, and taste delicious. I have even surprised guests. Don't t...

    I absolutely loved this book! Not so much for the recipes (but these are very good as well) but the humour in which Michelle writes about the everyday hurdles we face trying to feed our family "healthy". Her accounts had me laughing out loud. So we are not the only disfunctionial family at mealtimes. I actually forgot at times that it was a recipe book I was reading.

    This is a fun book, explaining the Paleo lifestyle and including easy recipes with all the tools you'll need for a Paleo kitchen. Although I'm not quite ready to go "full Paleo", I appreciate all the health benefits and love the delicious meals.

    I have pre ordered this book and can't wait till December! I just got the 80 page preview and I am so excited to get started with some of the recipes. The photos are fantastic, the cartoons are fun, and the food all looks yummy enough to eat right off the page! December needs to get here soon!

    I want to make every single thing in this book! I wish I weren't so lazy about cooking complicated food right now. Not everything is complicated, but some of the recipes have huge lists of ingredients. I can't wait to eat all this stuff. nom nom

    A substantial hardcover volume with heavy pages and incredibly gorgeous photographs, this cookbook makes you want to get up off the couch RIGHTNOW and make one of the enticing recipes inside. Buy this book if you love food.

    I cynic at this book. Cynic is now a verb. I'm sure the recipes are wonderful, but I am way too picky an eater for any of the suggestions to appeal to me...

    I was drooling while reading through this. ANd yes I did totally read a cookbook. I love her personality and writing style. The recipes sound and look delicious.

    Only 4 stars because I haven't made anything from it yet. But read it from cover to cover and everything looks delish!

    “In Cantonese – my parents’ native tongue – my mother, father, sister, and I can all be described as ‘wai sek’: we live to eat” (page 5).Ms. Michelle Tam euphemistically translates "wai sek" to mean "live to eat", but a more accurate translation would be gluttony. The term "wai sek" perfectly describes what is wrong with the modern western diet: from the foodie who seeks out the gourmet experiences from various cultures to the junk ...

    I loved this book! I usually skip the intro and flip straight to the recipes with photos, but I felt compelled to read the intro because I was curious to know why the book was filled with comics - very different from the common format other cookbooks offer.Turns out the author is a mother of two, a healthy eating enthusiast, and a busy hospital pharmacist with a lawyer husband! So the book not only had recipes and images catering to children, but...

    This book gets 5 stars not only for its unique approach to food, but also for being interesting enough to read from cover to cover just for fun. It's a cookbook, people. Think about it.No, I'm not going Paleo, at least not psycho-Paleo (it's the new vegan, don't you know). However, cutting back on gluten and processed foods and chemicals and yucky yuckness is always a good thing and I, with my age north of [decade redacted], need to take these th...

    My diet isn't Paleo right now (I'm on several different ones related to controlling inflammation and chronic illness), but there's some crossover, and I was desperate for recipes for things like offal, and also quick, everyday recipes that don't lean on dairy, sugar, or grains. I'm not sure Paleo would be a solution for my inflammation, but from these recipes I'd be willing to try it! I like how approachable/casual the author is, and how this boo...
