''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
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.

Well Fed 2 was named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon.com and was a Washington Post best seller. Her first cookbook Well Fed appeared on the Wall Street Journal best sellers list, and she's the author of the recipes in the New York Times bestselling book It Starts With Food by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig. She writes a column for Paleo Magazine, is a Community Ambassador for Experience Life magazine, and has been a featured chef for U.S. Wellness Meats and Lava Lake Lamb, as well as an instructor at Whole Foods.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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:
Sesame Cucumber Noodles
Coconut Cauliflower Rice
Tod Mun Chicken Cakes
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
