  • Would you buy *this* or *that*?

    I have been looking into the whole 30 program online and it seems very popular with many people here. I know that most of the information about it can be found online without buying the ebook but that there are many advantages to buying the book as well.

    I have been considering buying a cookbook like Everyday Paleo or something of the likes as well. However I can only afford at this time to focus on one product or the other. If any of you had the decision of which product to go with, what would YOU spend your money on?

      Honestly, neither. There are tons of recipe blogs out there. If money is tight enough that you're sweating the price of the books, then save your money for something else.

        Yeah, I suppose you are correct. I am just terrible at following through things without my hand held a little bit so I thought having a go-to manual of sorts may be helpful. Thank you for your opinions.

          I'm working on collecting recipes on here, mostly, but also elsewhere. Write them on index cards and keep them in a box or an old photo album. Voila- a manual.

          (Now to start using them. Burgers or just crumbled ground beef with veggie of choice is getting old)

            Download the free cookbook that Mark offers. You pay for it with your email address, but all he seems to do with it is send you periodic emails with links to his blog posts. I put the cookbook in my kindle and then can bring it with me to the kitchen (and my "kindle" is really my ipod.)

              I try to pirate as much material as possible and recommend you do the same.

              Isohunt.com is your friend, as is ebookee.com and other sites of that nature.

                      Everyday Paleo is a good starter cookbook if you like to use a book. I use it all the time, and I look up a lot of recipes online as well.

                        I just save all the recipes I find in Evernote. It's the same as having a cookbook except it's on my computer, phone, tablet, etc. It's quite convenient when I'm at the grocery store. Plus, it's shared with my husband. So if he's doing the shopping, he has all the information, too.

                          Check out paleo books from the library, mark what you want, make photocopies for a dime each.

                          Or go to Epicurious.com for thousands of recipes and primalize them -- usually pretty easy to do.

                              I love "Well Fed". She has some good tips for meal prep time savers in addition to a bunch of delicious and unique recipes.
