About the Book
The Paleo diet and style of eating is sweeping the nation. But one of the biggest concerns of those following this food trend is not the lack of variety but the price of food. Blogger Ciarra Hannah, creator of, has created 100 easy, wallet-friendly Paleo recipes that will feed the entire family. Her new book, THE FRUGAL PALEO COOKBOOK [Page Street Publishing, December 2014, $19.99 US] is a bountiful collection of delicious, easy, and affordable paleo recipes. By following Ciarra’s principles such as keeping it simple, focusing on sides, avoiding costly premium products, and being informed, home cooks can create delicious meals, save money and enjoy tasty, grain-free and healthy meals.

“Since there are plenty of folks out there far more qualified to tell you why the Paleo diet is so effective, I’m going to show you how to eat great Paleo food while maintaining a reasonable budget,” Ciarra states.

Insde Ciarra offers an incredible and practical selection of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, as well as kitchen basics such as spice mixes and poached chicken to keep on hand in the refrigerator, basic bone broth and homemade mayonnaise. Some of the fabulous recipes in the book include:

  • Cauliflower Lasagna
  • Beef Tips in Rosemary Balsamic Glaze
  • Vegetable Beef Curry
  • Summer Strawberry Salad with Chocolate Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Blueberry Peach Popovers
  • Crab Cake Frittata
  • Creole Baked Cod
  • Paleo Pork Normandy
  • Zesty Turkey Meatballs

THE FRUGAL PALEO COOKBOOK has one hundred Paleo recipes that feature grass-fed meat and naturally-raised whole-food ingredients, but are also light on the wallet. Ciarra Hannah creates a strong selection of Paleo dishes for everyday eating the whole family will love.
