The Caveman Diet seems very simple, and in many ways it is. It relies on the traditional foods that early humans ate, in the belief that those remain the healthiest fuel for modern man.
But it’s easy to get the mistaken impression that this means you’re doomed to a lifetime of boring meals as soon as you sign up, like a plain hunk of meat or a raw carrot freshly-yanked from the ground.
If you’re going to follow the Caveman Diet in a satisfying way, it helps to have a blueprint to follow. Here are three Paleo cookbooks that are must-reads for the options they offer those looking to follow the eating plans of their Stone Age ancestors.
This Paleo Recipe Book is the best way of getting a comprehensive picture of the plentiful options available to those looking for more Stone Age meals. When all the special offers are included, we’re talking more than 400 recipes in every category you can think of, plus the reference information that will allow the chef to improvise with panache. It’s more than capable of replacing that folder of recipes you currently store on your hard drive. Our full review can be found here.
The Caveman Diet is a natural friend of those interested in cutting gluten out of their diet, because their bodies have problems processing it or for other health reasons. The Gluten Free Cookbook here has enough recipes to make the diet one that features both simplicity and variety. It’s also a great bridge volume for anyone who’s unfamiliar with the concept of the Caveman lifestyle but is interested in a gluten free diet. Check the the full review here.
Finally, the Paleo Diet Smoothies Recipe Book is essential reading for those who rely on the fruit and vegetable beverages in a diet that can make those off-limits. It tells how to incorporate smoothies into the Caveman Diet eating plan, a boon to any breakfast and an area where it is easy to make mistakes if you’re not careful. Read more about the book here.
In addition, you get more than the books themselves when you order. Each volume usually comes with some bonus offers, like extra recipes or other publications. These four books, in some combination, can form the essential volumes in the Caveman Diet Kitchen Library.

Since you’re here …
… we’ve got a small favour to ask. More people are reading CAVEMENWORLD than ever, but few are paying for it. Advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike some othe organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our articles open to all. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. CAVEMENWORLD’s independent, investigative journalism and graphics take a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure.
