The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooker by Natalie Perry (Cookbook Review)

*Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own.

About the book-

In The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooking, well-respected and widely read paleo blogger Natalie Perry focuses mostly on main courses for dinner, but there are breakfast, lunch, snack, and sweets/desserts ideas as well. The more than 200 recipes in the book include appetizers and snacks, soups and chilis, poultry, beef, pork and lamb, fish and seafood, vegetable sides, desserts, and pantry basics. The recipes are creative and new incorporating global flavors with roots in Asian, Latin, and Middle Eastern cuisines. Most of these recipes have never before appeared in print.

My thoughts-

I love cookbooks and having lots of options to reach for to keep a wide variety of healthy foods rotating through my kitchen on our daily menus. Slow cooker cookbooks are always nice because I love throwing something together in the morning and not having to worry about it as my day gets busy. I also love smelling the great aroma that only slow cooked food can produce. The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooking is great because it offers a variety of different foods from different places. I love  Middle Eastern food, and food with Asian and Latin influences, and they are all present here. There are also some fantastic appetizer recipes to be found. This is a cookbook you could reach for over and over and still have a wide variety of food represented in your meals. I highly recommend The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooking to anyone looking to make more home cooked meals, but who prefer the convenience of slow cooking.
