''In addition to the beautiful photographs and delicious recipes, this cookbook does something unique in the genre of food preparation - woven throughout the book is the theme of how to put fantastic meals on the table in the least amount of time.'' -- My Athletic Life
''This is a cookbook for people who like to eat. Do you enjoy food? (You do.) Do you enjoy delicious, easy to prepare dishes? (You do.) Then I'd call Well-Fed the only Paleo-oriented cookbook you need.'' -- Three New Leaves
''[S]he turned her system into a cookbook full of mouthwatering recipes. But it's more than just a collection of recipes. It's a guide -- a how-to manual geared at helping the laziest among us run our kitchens and feed our families... Like Melissa, this book has attitude, and the recipes have spunk.'' -- Food Renegade
''Melissa's sassy and fun attitude also comes through in the design and text of the book. I'm not sure I've ever laughed out loud reading a cookbook before.'' ---- Breaking Muscle
Melissa has been following a 90% strict paleo diet since 2009 when she 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.
Well Fed is her second book. Her first is Rollergirl: Totally True Tales from the Track, a memoir of her experiences as one of the founders of the Texas Rollergirls, the original Flat Track Roller Derby league. She has appeared on the Today Show and Good Morning America in her roller skates and fishnets. These days, she's hung up her skates, and her workouts are just as likely to include yoga and meditation, as lifting heavy things and trying to stay ahead of the CrossFit stopwatch.
In 2012, Melissa's blog won the Homie Award from The Kitchen for ''Best Healthy Cooking Blog'' -- and Well Fed was the winner the 2012 ''Best Cookbook'' Award at the San Francisco Book Festival. She is also a Community Ambassador for Experience Life magazine and has been a featured chef for U.S. Wellness Meats.
She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband Dave and their cat Smudge.
I was pretty disappointed in the Well Fed books. The recipes were way too fancy for my taste. I'm a full time working mother and college student. I don't have time for all that.Published 2 days ago by TattooGurlie

I love you Melissa! I've made ever page of this book, it's spilled on, sticky and crackled from how often we use it. A Paleo must have! Check out the sequel too!Published 10 days ago by Shauna McDaniel
