Dr Sarah Ballantyne's new book, Paleo Principles, is the most comprehensive guide to the Paleo diet that you'll find on the shelves of any book store. It was created as a one-stop Paleo book so there's no need to cross refer to other publications for more clarification. It's all here. Getting your hands on Paleo Principles also means you don't need to buy any resistance training gear - at 6 lbs, carrying this around with you should tone your muscles in next to no time!
Paleo Principles is such an easy book to love, since it covers everything you could ever imagine wanting to know about the Paleo diet. By Dr Ballantyne's own admission, she is a science geek so expect a lot of great, in-depth information on the why, how and what now? This includes scientific validity to the entire Paleo movement, in relation to health! It is all extremely easy to understand, but readers who want to get straight to the point will be grateful for tools such as "Science Simplified" and "Health Quick Start" textboxes, as well as plenty of visual guides.
As a child who was forever asking my mother "why?", I like that we now know why some food choices are better than others, and why some are just plain wrong. Of course it isn't only about food, there is lots of information about lifestyle factors that are known to improve our health - such as being active, getting sleep, managing stress and connecting with nature and community. The book is also very much tailored to the bioindividual because, let's face it, we're all unique and require our own template for reaching and maintaining optimal health. So you'll find guides on customising food intake, navigating grey-area foods, troubleshooting chronic illnesses and food sensitivities, as well as advice on how to achieve balance for lifelong success.
Paleo Principles is a must-have for any Paleo fan, whether you spend the time to read it from cover to cover, or use it to dip in and out of as you gather information.

Paleo Principles isn't specifically about Autoimmune Disease, rather it covers the broader topic of health in general. Having said that, half of the 225+ recipes are either AIP-friendly or can be easily adapted. Sensitivities to common ingredients are clearly labelled, including FODMAPs and nightshades. There are also 20 meal plans (many of which are themed for various health goals and dietary needs), together with food lists, shopping guides and cooking how-tos.
All this and so much more is inside this epic publication - it's a perfect Paleo Present!
