Book Description

Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat is the follow-up to the deliciously popular Well Fed -- by ''The Clothes Make The Girl'' blogger Melissa Joulwan -- and it's packed with even more internationally-inspired recipes, mouth-watering photos, and easy meal ideas.
All 200 recipes and Quick Meal ideas in Well Fed 2 are made with zero grains, legumes, soy, sugar, dairy, and alcohol -- without sacrificing fun and flavor. The recipes are easy to prepare and were tested extensively so they work every time -- and so you don't have to spend all your free time in the kitchen.

Includes 200 recipes, variations, and Quick Meal ideas
Well Fed 2 includes 110 original recipes, plus 45 of Melissa's popular ''You Know How You Could Do That'' variations. You'll also find 44 Quick Meal ideas (no recipe required!) and tips for turning individual dishes into multi-course meals.

More than recipes
The book opens with information to help readers manage their relationship with food, including ways to identify emotional appetite versus true hunger, 30 reasons to do a Whole30, tips for socializing while keeping good habits, and a call to action to develop the best version of themselves.

International cuisine made healthier
Paleo can seem restrictive, so a broad array of international recipes have been paleo-ized for delicious flavor without sacrificing good nutrition, including Deconstructed Gyro, Thai Basil Beef, Chinese Five-Spice Pork Ribs, Lemon Lamb Tagine, Tod Mun Chicken Cakes, Belly Dance Beet Salad, Garlic Creamed Spinach, Sesame Cucumber Noodles, and even Banana Pecan Ice Cream.

Burgers, Balls & Bangers
Inspired by international sausage flavors, these 15 meatball recipes can also be shaped into patties or sausages, then grilled, baked, or pan-fried. It's exponential meat goodness!

Quick Meals
Ideas for meals and snacks that don't require a recipe, but add zing to everyday eating for paleo newbies and veterans.

AIP Adaptations
More than 100 of the recipes and Quick Meal ideas in Well Fed 2 can easily and tastily be modified to comply with the autoimmune protocol of paleo. The book includes detailed instructions for adapting the recipes for people who need to take extra care.

Whole30 Approved
All of the recipes are approved for use during a Whole30 (whole9life.com/category/whole-30) except the Sweet Potato ''Waffle'' and the Banana Pecan Ice Cream.

Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
The PDF version of the book is available for $1 to everyone who buys a printed copy. Those dollars will be donated to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, an organization devoted to getting clean cooking methods into the kitchens of developing countries.

Well Fed 2 proves that the Paleo diet -- too often defined by what you give up -- is really about what you gain: good health, a light heart, and memorable meals to share with the people you love.


Editorial Reviews

Review

''Mel Joulwan has done it again: a beautifully designed, inspirational, educational cookbook filled not only with her trademark fantastic recipes, but also loaded with her wit and warmth. Mel inspires me to keep doing what I do. She fully lives -- and LOVES -- the Primal/paleo lifestyle.'' -- Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, publisher of MarksDailyApple.com

''Melissa's done the impossible: she managed to improve on Well Fed, the most dog-eared, sauce-splattered, well-loved resource in my kitchen. No matter if you're cooking to impress a crowd or just yourself, Well Fed 2 offers everything a real food lover could hope for in a cookbook: international flavors, inventive tips, vivid stories, and stunning photography that dances off the page. I could cook out of this extraordinary book every single day.'' -- Michelle Tam, author of Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans and the web site nomnompaleo.com

''For those of you who have already begun to live a better life thanks to the first Well Fed, welcome back! Here, you'll find enough recipe variations, inspiration, and excitement to propel you even further down your own individual path of health and happiness. For those who are starting with Well Fed 2, you are about to embark upon a journey. Trust us when we say these are not just recipes, and this is not just a cookbook. The information contained here ignites your spark -- and will change your life the way it's changed so many others.'' -- Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, authors of the New York Times best seller It Starts With Food

''Melissa Joulwan's second cookbook Well Fed 2 is a delight to read, to look at, and to cook from. Not only does it contain literally hundreds of new recipes and ideas for the paleo cook, it's also a straight-forward and honest composition about what it means to eat paleo and how you can be the healthiest and best version of yourself.
As anyone familiar with her writing or her home-cooked meals would tell you, Melissa goes hard or not at all, and Well Fed 2 is no exception. From tips on eating out to a heartfelt discussion on emotional eating, stocking your paleo pantry, homemade condiment recipes, proteins, vegetables and side salads, even a few fruit desserts, this book has all its bases covered. Melissa is a creative and daring cook and her recipes will inspire you; in fact, creating your own variations is strongly encouraged through the ''You know how you could do that?'' feature on almost every recipe.
With its delectable recipes, beautiful photos, clear instructions, and cooking tips galore, Well Fed 2 will be at home in any kitchen and will doubtless become a classic.'' -- Hilah Johnson, star of the internet TV show Hilah Cooking (hilahcooking.com)

''From the Cincinnati Chili to a wonderfully simple Banana Pecan Ice Cream, the recipes in Well Fed 2 are so tempting you'll want to make them whether you're committed to a Paleo diet or just want to incorporate more whole foods into your diet. (And probably even if you don't.)'' ---- Jennifer Reese, author of Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should and Shouldn't Cook from Scratch



''I think my favorite part about Melissa's new cookbook Well Fed 2 is that it's a paleo cookbook that's actually paleo. Wait, no! My favorite part is that her attitude is as spicy as her recipes. Wait, no! Really my favorite part is that the playlist on page 30 includes half my favorite songs from high school. I love this book for about a hundred different reasons, and I'm ridiculously excited that it exists. On a serious note, it's wonderful to see a paleo cookbook that isn't full of honey, maple syrup, and molasses. These are legit paleo recipes, and they are legitimately tasty too. Melissa's recipes are unique and so is her personality. --Becca Borawaski Jenkins, Managing Editor, BreakingMuscle.com

About the Author

Melissa Joulwan's favorite vegetable is cauliflower, and she has an abiding affection for Japanese sweet potatoes. Her favorite spice is cumin. Her favorite book is Jane Eyre. Her favorite city is Prague, and her favorite band is Social Distortion. You might have known all of that already if you follow her blog, The Clothes Make The Girl (theclothesmakethegirl.com).

She was shocked to realize recently that she's now the author of four books (!) and a contributor to a New York Times bestseller: It Starts With Food. (The ''Meal Map'' recipes in that book came straight from her kitchen.)

The Clothes Make the Girl is an unusual title for a blog that's about her tales of triumph and failure in the gym, in the kitchen, in life. She admits to being a sucker for the perfect little black dress and stompy black boots and sparkly what-whats. Her desire to be fit and healthy is almost matched by her love of punk fashion and high glamour.

After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting and food as the enemy, Melissa found the paleo diet in 2009 and has been happily, healthily following it ever since. That year, she also underwent a thyroidectomy. In the aftermath of the surgery and recovery, she became particularly interested in how diet affects hormones, body composition, mood, and motivation.

These days, her workouts are just as likely to include yoga and meditation as lifting heavy things and trying to stay ahead of the stopwatch. She lives in Austin with her husband and collaborator Dave, and their cat Smudge. They're all moving to Prague as soon as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars The bar has been raised! October 21, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Melissa Joulwan did it again!! Well Fed 2 somehow manages to rise above the excellence that is the first Well Fed. The recipes seem more diverse and the beginning of the book is packed full with all kinds of non-recipe meal ideas including lots of ways to dress up your eggs, burgers, and broccoli.

The book is also about 1/3 larger than the first one but still kept to a manageable size. I cannot stand big behemoth cookbooks with only a handful of recipes I want to actually make. I love that these books are light, portable, and they don't take up too much counter space.

Lately I've been kind of obsessed with making condiments. I was delighted to see that there is an entire section of condiments and every single one of them looks mouthwatering. Including quite a few ways to jazz up your basic mayo recipe.

Before I ever cooked a thing I read it front to back like a novel. The recipes are so full of interesting flavors that pop off the page and make your mouth water. Little personalized touches, stories, and anecdotes make each one even more special. The photos are stunning! Even better than the first book. They are more colorful, brighter, and they make you want to eat!! Like calorie and carb free appetizers! :)

You can also rest assured that no matter how mouthwatering and delectable these recipes are every single one of them is squeaky clean Paleo. Like W30 approved squeaky clean. Well, except for one or two treats. Now I'm totally down for the occasional Paleofied treat but I already have umpteen million recipes for them not to mention the internet is full of ideas for every single kind of Paleo brownie, cookie, pie, or cake you can think of.

5.0 out of 5 stars How following a Paleo Life Style Changed my Life! November 29, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in May 2013. Was told by my family Doctor to drop 60 lbs (minimum) by end of October! He also recommended to join Weight Watchers. I had followed Weight Watchers lost some weight only to gain it all back...with extra weight :( So I went to see a Naturopath; who recommended to follow a Paleo Life Style. Read only good reviews about Fed 2, so I decided to give it a try. Love everything about this book. It is organized. Easy to follow. Recipes taste good. My son and husband were a little worried when I told them I would start cooking Paleo......but I have only gotten raves over the recipes I have cooked from this book. Thank you so much "Melissa Joulwan". You have inspired me to cook and try new recipes; and I look forward to trying them ALL out! Thanks once again you are definitely God sent. Bless you.
By the way....it is now November 29, 2013. I have lost a total of 47lbs to date. My numbers for my Triglycerides are back to normal. My HDL (good) cholesterol is up! Which is good. My LDL (bad) cholesterol is down.....which is great! The good news is that I am NO longer Type 2 Diabetic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doing Whole30? This is A Must-Have Cookbook! November 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All but two recipes in it are Whole30 approved. And you will never, ever feel deprived. The flavors sing!

Recipes I've made so far:

Casablanca Carrots - wonderful cold salad to eat alone or atop greens.
Merguez Sausage Seasoning and Meatballs - an instant favorite.
Italian Bangers
Oven-Fried Salmon Cakes - so delicious, and penny-wise.
Fiesta Pork Chops - bye bye bland pork chops.
Pan-Fried Plantains - perfect for breakfast.
Green Beans with Sizzled Garlic - so flavorful - a huge hit!
Silky Gingered Zucchini Soup - a "hug in a bowl" indeed.
Crispy Chicken Livers - surprisingly delicious.
Mashed Cauliflower - Less "heavy" than mashed potatoes, and so much faster. No peeling, boiling or mashing!
Basic Cauliflower Rice - especially great with a curry, saucy dish or soup.
Steam-sauteed Veggies - a weekly staple.
Roasted Spaghetti Squash - always have some on hand!
Roasted Cabbage Roses - surprisingly delicious.
Olive Oil Mayo & Garlic Mayo - these are always in my fridge.
Tahini Dressing - so tasty drizzled

On my "Try Next" list:

Hoisin Sauce
Mulligatawny Stew
Sesame Cucumber Noodles
Coconut Cauliflower Rice
Plantain Nachos
Tod Mun Chicken Cakes
Better Butter
Zingy Ginger Dressing

She has extremely simple yet helpful sections titled "Stuff to Put on Eggs", "Flavor Boosters" that will jazz up any food, How to Dress up Broccoli, Burger Toppings, and suggestions on combinations to try. Great when you are speed-cooking a basic meal!

The original Well Fed struck a perfect balance of simple, fast recipes and dishes that took a bit more time and effort but yielded many meals. All of her recipes have been incredibly delicious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful follow up to the indispensable Well Fed October 18, 2013
By RoninTG
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well Fed remains one of my favorite Paleo cookbooks and one of my top three recommendations when people ask me about "must have" books for the Paleo kitchen. Well Fed 2 takes everything that Well Fed did right and remarkably improves upon an already fantastic formula. There are accompanying pictures for the recipes, not just tiny little photos taken as an aside but full page food porn that serve to entice both the mind and the palate of the reader. It's hard not to get hungry while reading this book. All of the recipes except one, are Whole 30 compliant which is something that is amazing for people who follow that idea for 30 days at a time or continually. Personally I would have bought the book solely for the Burgers, Balls & Bangers section which breaks down the prep and cooking required to prepare these items a few different ways from stovetop to grill to inside the oven. I find meatballs are just as good cold as when hot and are easy to both transport to and consume when out in the field and away from any way to reheat my food come chow time. Each section of the book has numerous delicious recipes that I can't wait to try.

The author's "you know how you could do that" notes at the end of the recipes serve to add additional dishes that the recipe could be transformed into with a simple swap of some ingredients. In my mind this accomplishes two things. Firstly it turns one recipe into many more and improves the value and scope of the book, and secondly it challenges you to think and consider how the ingredients work together and how you could alter the listed ingredients and create something uniquely your own. It's not just telling you how to cook, but teaching you.
