What other people say about Paleo Wired books!
"This is another short but to the point book from Paleo Wired. In it, Jasmine Wood presents a quick overview and description of the five skin types (normal skin, oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, combination skin). This is followed by a brief description of the essential ingredients in homemade all-natural creams (honey and beeswax being the most important). Then come the recipes for DIY lotions and cream. These include: Body lotion, body cream, autumn cream, anti-wrinkle cream, hand lotion, face creams (for the different skin types), lip chap, and all natural toothpaste.
Each recipe gives a list of ingredients, followed by directions on how to make the lotion or cream. The ingredients are readily available in health food stores or online. Most of the creams and lotions are quite easy to make, and the directions are clear and easy to follow.
This is a great little book for anyone looking for an all-natural way to keep their skin smooth and youthful looking."
"This is a quick no-frills book on how to make homemade hand and facial creams. That will take care of dry or cracked hands feet and faces you will also learn that honey and beeswax are one of the most important parts of any hand cream, and why store-bought variations are so expensive (because it takes a fair amount of honey and natural beeswax to make a decent cream). I was very interested to learn the difference between a lotion and cream. The major difference is that lotion contains more water or other natural language, whereas the cream has far less water and is of a thicker consistency. I was interested in this book because I am outside a lot during the winter, and therefore end up with severely chapped lips and hands on a regular basis. And sadly, there aren't very many manly versions of protective hand creams available on the market that do not come with a fairly hefty price tag attached for what you get. So I decided to do some research and see if I could make my own natural-based creams to protect my hands and lips and save a little bit of money in the process.
I stumbled across this book, and I must say I'm very pleased with the results. It explains the five major skin types and how to configure cream for let's say very dry skin versus skin and contains a lot of oil, as compared with what is considered to be normal skin. This one definitely has no-frills, and no gimmicks and his relatively short, but that is okay by me, because there is nothing in these pages that I don't absolutely need to know to make a usable. 100% natural, organic cream, when I need it. Of course there are creams in this book such as anti-aging and face creams. As I imagine, the primary market for such a publication is of course going to be women however as I say restorative and dry skin protective creams do wonders for my hands and face in the cold winter weather. And I'm very pleased with the results. And not only that but, the book also includes a recipe for organic homemade toothpaste as well, which I will be trying, very shortly."
"I must say a wonderful book that i bought. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book as this is loaded with some amazing information about making organic lotions that can be made at home which is useful for all types of skin. The book is written very well. Organic and natural products are always healthy for skin the author has suggested many tips to keep our skin hydrated and glowing.Overall a great read and highly recommended one!!!!!"
"I bought this to get started eating Paleo, and it seemed like an easy way to start.
I made the banana bread first - it was amazing! And we are baked good snobs in our house, too! Very moist and not too sweet - it was fantastic. Well, it is fantastic, because I made more.
This book has really easy recipes, not too exotic on the ingredients, which is perfect for us, because that way my husband will eat the recipes too! The Mexican Rice recipe is fantastic, and I thought we would have to give that up (and that’s been a staple around here!).
I also love that there are time estimates for preparing each recipe, because I am not an expert cook yet. These are quite quick recipes for the most part, and easy to double if you want to cook ahead."
"This Paleo Recipe guide is loaded with creative healthy meals to help you get your good health on track for life. The recipes are easy to follow, clear, and use simple foods.
The author has a good knowledge of Paleo eating. However I would have liked to see some more personalty - maybe a bit of a write up- or if just recipes then the nutritional information would have been a great addition! Maybe next time Cuz I can see and hope there are many more recipe books to come!
Great use of keyword crossing too that'll help hopefully get this recipe guide in front of as many readers as possible! Good pics too.
Bottom line is I recommend this Paleo style recipe guide if you're looking to improve your eating habits - Good Stuff!"
"I love Paleo cookbooks as I am not a big fan of most carbs and get bored of eating the same old thing. Paleo books always have awesome twists on classics that make them healthier than ever. I actually just had the Prosciutto Stuffed Pancakes this morning and I was surprised at how ewell the ingredients combined for flavor. I am excited to try some more."
"This cookbook is awesome if you want to implement a healthier lifestyle. For me, eating paleo can sometimes be a bit boring and it's recipes like this that can spice it up! This cookbook has simple recipes like "Paleo Traditional Bacon and Eggs" to slightly more complex like "Fried Squid with Veggies on Mediterranean". I'd definitely recommend it!"
