The Paleo or Caveman Diet, with the idea to create cookbooks to help families wanting to eat healthier and follow a no-gluten, no-grain, no-dairy, and no-processed sugar regiment.

Little Pearl Publishing, founded by New Mexican Julie Schoen, is always on the hunt for the next digital books destined to become bestsellers. So when Little Pearl was approached by sister-in-law Lauren Pope, an enthusiast of the popular “new” diet commonly known as The Paleo or Caveman Diet, with the idea to create cookbooks to help families wanting to eat healthier and follow a no-gluten, no-grain, no-dairy, and no-processed sugar regiment, a deal was struck.
“Lauren contacted my company with a stellar idea and years of experience with a trend that many people are just now discovering,” states Schoen. “She wanted to fill a void in the market, one she personally struggled with when trying to follow a strict diet and cook for her family simultaneously.”
Pope explains that it was easy to cook for herself, a health and fitness junkie who didn’t mind cutting out everyday comforts like refined sugar and breads. “But when it came to trying to create three meals a day for my hungry boy, cold turkey cuts and eggs just weren’t going to cut it.” Pope admits to wanting to throw the towel in on the Paleolithic style of eating a few times, not because she didn’t like it (in fact, she is obsessed with it), but simply because it became too hard.
“I’m a working mom and after a long day, coming home to a whiny kid who only wants to eat pizza… well, it gets tough.”
But Pope didn’t give up. Instead, she committed hours of time in the kitchen each weekend, testing new ideas that were “Paleofied”, as she calls them, and ones that her son would not only down, but ones that he actually would ask for again and again.
The result of Pope’s commitment is a new series of “Paleofied” cookbooks, The Caveman Family Favorites, six in total, covering every meal of the day, desserts, slow cookers, and her favorite, a holiday edition. Little Pearl Publishing is launching this series today on Amazon and they will be free all weekend and possibly Monday.
“I just really want to help other moms and families like me,” says Pope. “I know that cooking something healthy and something that people love can be incredibly tough, and that is why I wanted to make these cookbooks available to the whole world. I know these recipes and ideas will help a lot of people eat healthier and feel better – they did for me.”
