Primal Cravings sets out to provide the best of both worlds—delicious food to satiate our deep seated, visceral urges, made with ingredients that satisfy our ancient genetic needs for good health. Thin mint cookies, strawberry shortcake waffles, carrot cake cream pies, All-American burgers with French fry buns, ten different flavored bacons... With Primal Cravings, you can enjoy all this and much more, and still stay aligned with the Primal/Paleo eating strategy. Inside you'll find assorted breakfasts, meat and main dishes, sides and salads, snacks, sweets and basics like bread, sauces, and dressings. All 125 innovative recipes are low-sugar, grain-free, gluten-free, and industrial oil-free. Unlike typical substitute recipes in other cookbooks, these new and original grain-free baking methods have almost exclusively eliminated the need for expensive nut flours and nut butters.

These kitchen whizzes and expert-level fitness coaches present Primal Cravings on the heels of several years of research, experimentation and perfecting recipes in their home kitchen. The recipes are presented in a simple, clear, easy-to-navigate format, with vibrant photos and detailed macronutrient analysis' of each preparation.
