Low Carb Free Kindle Books 8-9-13

PLEASE. Do everyone a favor and write an Amazon review if you end up reading a book (or trying to and giving up in disgust). It does not have to be much. Just tell what you think of the book. By the way, many times I have found the 1 and 2 star reviews on self published works to be far more revealing about the book than the more stellar reviews. Reviewers need gratification too, so if a review is helpful to you, please click on the voting button to indicate it was helpful.

Most times these books are only free for a day or two, so you have to grab them while you can. Worry about whether you really want to read it later if it seems interesting. And be careful, they can change from free to not free at any time. I have also decided to list books for no more than 3 days in a row to avoid cluttering up the posts, unless there is some reason I think the book deserves extra attention.

Paleo Recipes: Paleo Recipes for Busy People. Quick and Easy Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Desserts Recipe Book
This book includes a selection of my favorite Paleo recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinners and desserts. The main meals include an assortment of chicken, beef, pork and fish. There are also some favorite paleo soups, desserts and paleo smoothie recipes too.
Paleo recipes can be quick and easy while still being delicious. As we know this is possible because there is such a variety of foods to eat on this "diet". Paleo isn't so much a "diet" but more a lifestyle and change in eating habits to reduce processed foods and include healthy, natural foods. Preservatives and additives can often have an adverse effect on our health, so going back to foods straight from nature can be beneficial for weight loss and general well being. Low carbohydrate, natural foods are better for all of us and quick and easy paleo comfort foods hit the spot for nutrition too.

"Paleo Recipes" is a recipe book designed for busy people that want time to prepare a meal without too much fuss. Food preparation time and how easy recipes are to make can play a major role in whether or not we stick to a diet or food plan.
The Paleo recipes are many of my favorites when I'm busy getting home from work, but still want a nutritious meal to eat for my family and myself.This handful of healthy recipes can be used throughout the week. Paleo meals don't need to be complex, just delicious and easy! When the weekend comes and you get your time off from your busy life that is a time you can make the more involved recipes for eating paleo.
As you know the "caveman diet" includes eating meats, so these are featured. I've included a variety of meals for different times of the day so you use some of these as your favorites too, cooking them time and time again without having to get a large Paleo cookbook out and go through a million and one paleo recipes! These are my favorites so I hope you like them too. Here is an idea of what is in the book
- What Is The Paleo Diet?
- Building a Healthy Paleo Diet
- Paleo Recipes for Busy People
- Paleo Breakfast Recipes
- Paleo Soup Recipes
