Review (and a Giveaway): Nom Nom Paleo – Food for Humans

19 Dec

Update: Congratulations to Christopher S., who won the giveaway!

A while back, I made the decision that I wasn’t going write single book reviews, and instead write book review roundups (check out my Summer and Fall roundups). But then I had a look at Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans, which came out on Tuesday. Here’s the deal: it’s so good that writing anything other than a single book review doesn’t do this piece of art justice. Don’t even read this review, just go buy the book. Not convinced? Well, then keep reading.

The book features over 100 recipes, half of which aren’t on their website or iPad app. It’s teeming with humor and love from Michelle, beautifully illustrated by Henry, and tailored for those who appreciate good food but don’t appreciate extended cooking times. The book focuses on fresh ingredients and simple preparations, but with surprising variety and depth of flavor. Some of the recipes are fairly challenging, but Michelle walks you through each step with ease. We’ve been cooking some of these recipes for years now and they never disappoint. This book is a best-of collection.

One of my favorite parts about this book is that it’s super light on desserts, and has only one (count it, one!) baked treat. It’s chock-full of vegetable and seafood recipes, both of which are woefully underrepresented in the Paleo community. Beyond the recipes, the book is a heartwarming tale of a family that seems incapable of doing anything but be creative and have fun, with little illustrations and jokes spread throughout the whole thing.

Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans is out in all major bookstores in hardcover, and on Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play. They’re also offering a 50-page preview of the book here if you’re interested. Seriously, get it.

I’m so convinced that you’ll love this book that I’m going to buy a copy of the book and ship it to one of you. Just leave a comment on the bottom this post and I’ll send it to the winner via Amazon. I’ll pick the winner Friday, December 20th 2013, at 11:59pm (EST) and email the winner immediately thereafter. With any luck, you’ll get it before Christmas! Giveaway limited to US and Canadian residents (I’m not made of money!).

  6. katytaylor December 19, 2013 at 11:10 am #

  8. Thomas December 19, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    I have her app and would welcome the chance to have the cookbook.

  9. Kasey December 19, 2013 at 11:11 am #

    I have not doubt it’s awesome her site was the first one I went to when I decided to go paleo…..mostly because I like the recipes and then I found out the family were Bay Area locals which meant I could easily find the ingredients used.

  10. natasharenee07 December 19, 2013 at 11:11 am #

    I want this book so much! It looks amazing. Especially for more ideas of what to do with vegetables…I always feel so bad when I can’t figure out what to do with them and they end up going bad.

  11. atomicpunk67 December 19, 2013 at 11:11 am #

    Love the recipes from her website…even better to have them compiled in a book!

  12. Jackie O'Brien December 19, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    This book looks so beautiful! I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

  13. maggielittle December 19, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    I would love to have this cookbook!

  14. Suzanne Barrett December 19, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    How interesting to find this giveaway. My son bought the book for his wife, so I was just looking at some of the recipes online and copied a couple to try. And here you are giving away a copy to a lucky commenter!

    Okay, I would LOVE to be entered in the contest. I’ve been Primal/Paleo just over a year since reading Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint and now am on a hunt for the best paleo recipes I can find.

  15. Ruth Hirsch December 19, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    Dear Russ,

    Many thanks for being generous. I am tickled when I get your emails, and would be so happy to be gifted NomNom!
    It would be just right: I would appreciate it very much, esp as you describe it: lots of seafood, little nut flour baking.
    that would be helpful

    I am so glad you’re health has improved so very much too.

    thank you,


  16. Anne B. December 19, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I just added this book to my Amazon wish list yesterday! Your positive review now makes it a certainty….though I do hope I win!!! Merry Christmas!

    I pre-ordered her book as soon as she posted it in her blog… received it 2 days ago and haven’t been able to put it down. Love Michelle’s snarky humor and the cook book is beautiful! I’ve already used many of her recipes from the iPad app and can’t wait to try some of the new ones from the cookbook. I have someone in mind that I would love to give a copy of the book to, so count me in!

  24. jessicaisbaking December 19, 2013 at 11:25 am #

    This book looks so awesome!!!

    Had not heard of this cookbook previously, but I cannot bear to delete any of your blog posts when they arrive in my inbox. So glad I clicked!

    The photos look divine.

  29. ryan December 19, 2013 at 11:38 am #

    would definitely love that book, along with yours of course!

  30. Janelle December 19, 2013 at 11:44 am #

    I put this book on my Christmas list, but I already know I didn’t get it. Haha. I’ll just have to buy it if I don’t win it! :)

  31. Ted lambert December 19, 2013 at 11:46 am #

    Nom Nom is such a great blog that her cookbook must be just as good. If I don’t win I’ll buy one anyway! Or I’ll buy one and give one to a friend who really needs to go primal/paleo! Been working on him for awhile he’s given up corn chips but can’t get him to go all the way.

  32. Morgan December 19, 2013 at 11:47 am #

    I would love to have this! What a great way to start the New Year!

  33. Jess December 19, 2013 at 11:47 am #

    I have just been learning about Paleo cooking, and eyeing this book. Hope I win! :)

  34. Katie December 19, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    Have heard nothing but rave reviews about this cookbook! Would love to add it to my collection!

  35. Barbara December 19, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    It is wonderful to actually TASTE food again! NomNomPaleo is one of my favorite web sites and the recipes are terrific. She sure knows how to combine flavors for their umami taste. Makes cooking a joy again!

  36. Jamie December 19, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    I love nom nom paleo, and would love her cookbook! Thank you for the opportunity! :)

  37. Brian Dews December 19, 2013 at 11:53 am #

    I’ve been adding to my Paleo cookbooks, including pre-ordering yours. Would love to have this one as well. I use the app. -Brian

  38. cathyo December 19, 2013 at 11:55 am #

  39. Katherine Briganti Cobb December 19, 2013 at 11:57 am #

    Me want Nom Nom!! Sounding rather caveman there aren’t I? Seriously Russ, I’d love her cookbook and I’m feeling lucky so I’ rolling the dice here rather than putting it on my Christmas list! Glad you’re digging it. Yours and hers are long-awaited right here in the Casa Cobb!

  40. Dennis December 19, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    I’d love to add this book to my collection. I have a lot of brewing books, but not nearly enough cook books! This one definitely looks interesting.

    help. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

  44. Lois December 19, 2013 at 12:03 pm #

    I am sure it is great and anybody and everybody would love to have this, especially me!!

  45. Brittany December 19, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    This book looks awesome!! I do like the idea of a paleo book with fewer dessert/treats because it’s SO EASY to find those online and honestly I am way toooooo lazy to make about 99% of those treats. Thanks for the giveaway!

  46. Anita December 19, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    Sounds like a perfect match for me….I rarely eat sweets and love healthy food! Hope you have a happy and joyous holiday season! :)

  47. Estelle C December 19, 2013 at 12:07 pm #

    Love Nom Nom Paleo! She was the first blog I found when I started eating Paleo and she introduced me to your blog :) Thanks for the opportunity.

  48. Samantha Sellers December 19, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    Would love this book! I have a ton of meat recipes but I need a lot more veggie and seafood. Thanks!

  49. Alex December 19, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    Would love to win this; have only made Nom Nom’s sweet potato tuna cakes and chili lime chicken but am sold!

    Love your blog.

  55. Jody December 19, 2013 at 12:50 pm #

    This book would def help me!
    Please and thank you!

  68. ErinK December 19, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    This sounds like a really good one!! May just have to sneak over to Amazon and snag one!

  69. Joanne Oberle December 19, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    You got me at crab louie. Got me to think about San Francisco in the early 60’s and every restaurant had it on their menu. Love a cookbook with lots of pictures and instructions, this looks like a beautiful book. P.S. I love your recipes, keep them coming.

  70. Gelfo December 19, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

  114. Stephanie KL December 19, 2013 at 7:12 pm #

    I am a fan of Michelle’s and would very much love to own her book!

  115. Gidds December 19, 2013 at 7:12 pm #

    This sounds like a great book if it focuses on
    short cooking times plus seafood & veg. I’m always looking for these kinds of recipes. BUT I don’t eat sweet potato and it seems like 75% of all paleo recipes involve sweet potato. Is this a sweet potato-heavy tome?

    • Russ Crandall December 19, 2013 at 7:21 pm #

      Gidds, sweet potatoes only appear twice in the book. Cool fact: they also only appear twice in my book (once in the form of sweet potato noodles)!

  116. James December 19, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

    What’s a guy gotta do to get some Nom Nom over here?

  117. Callie / Flour and Fancy December 19, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

    That book does look fantastic – I can see why you were convinced! :)

  118. Alexa December 19, 2013 at 7:46 pm #

    I would love this!

  122. Lora December 19, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

    I love the Nom Nom Paleo site and the iPad app. This cookbook would be amazing to add to the collection! It’s nice to see a paleo cookbook that isn’t loaded with desserts.

  123. Allison December 19, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

    I love Michelle’s blog. Like this blog, the recipes are adventurous (for me) yet simple and easy to make. Good food and good for you. I’d love to win this.

  124. Jeannie Sloop December 19, 2013 at 8:43 pm #

    I want this book so badly. I love her blog and have tried so many of her recipes. What a great Christmas giveaway.

  125. Mel December 19, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

    Would love a copy — I would read it and then gift it to my Mom!

  126. Chelsea Wipf December 19, 2013 at 8:48 pm #

    I would love this cookbook!

  127. Jeffrey Turpin December 19, 2013 at 9:10 pm #

    I wonder if she’ll do a Nom Nom 2 just like there is now a 2nd Well Fed book. This book seems to be of that tier of quality. I just wish Paleo books would add more dairy especially milk and cheese =)

  128. Allison December 19, 2013 at 9:30 pm #

    I would love to have this cookbook. :)

  129. Heather December 19, 2013 at 9:32 pm #

    oh man a cookbook big on veggies and meat dishes – that’s just what our family needs. hopefully you ship to APO-AE addresses (military overseas) – it will cost you the same. Merry Christmas to you!

  138. Helen Lew December 20, 2013 at 3:58 am #

    I would like to win this book.

  139. Jake December 20, 2013 at 5:18 am #

    Talk about nom noms in yo’ tum tums! This Paleo thing’s gettin’ to be pleasin’… the proof of it’s in book like these, not to mention blogs like yours. My lips get to smacking… getting healthy should involve taste reward. Us simpletons need simple guidance. Tell us like we’re four years old and we’ll lay out some fine platters of delicious food. Thank you, sweet recipe thinkers.

    This book would be awesome to have! Love your blog! :)

    This book looks amazing! Im betting that it is even better than her blog:)

    Just starting out Paleo with my whole family on board…this would be perfect.

    Ironically, I was just looking at Nom Nom Paleo on Amazon earlier and wishing for a copy for Christmas until I stumbled upon your blog. I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts.

  151. Patrick L December 20, 2013 at 3:40 pm #

    What a great cookbook. Her blog is fantastic and yes fish and veggie recipes are too often over looked. Thanks for giveaway!

    I want this book so badly! I’ve tried to hint to my sweetie, but he isn’t getting the clue. My kids are ignoring it too, lol. If you pick me, you will have my everlasting gratitude. I will even name my next-born after you….. my next chicken, that is. High praise, I promise. We love our chickens dearly, and put a lot of thought into their names!!!

    • Russ Crandall December 20, 2013 at 8:29 pm #

      Jen, I totally want to pick you for the name thing alone! But I use a random number generator to pick the winner, so the odds are stacked against little Russ Jr. :(
