About the Author
Melissa Joulwan is the author of the best-selling Well Fed cookbook series and the award-winning blog MelJoulwan.com, where she writes about her triumphs and failures in the gym, in the kitchen, and in life. Her newest cookbook is Well Fed Weeknights: Complete Paleo Meals in 45 Minutes Or Less (November 1, 2016).
After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting and food as the enemy, Melissa found the paleo diet in 2009 and has been happily 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, Melissa's workouts are just as likely to include yoga and meditation as lifting heavy things and sprinting to stay ahead of the stopwatch.
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 and her recipes have been featured in print in Low Sugar Living, Inspire Health, and Where Women Cook, and online at Buzzfeed.com, FoodNetwork.com, Nylon.com, PopSugar.com, and Men's Journal. She has been a featured chef for U.S. Wellness Meats and Lava Lake Lamb, as well as an instructor at Whole Foods.

Top Customer Reviews
I have never before cooked every recipe in a cookbook. I am committing that I will be making every single recipe in this book before the end of 2012. Yes - it is that good. In fact, I have never reviewed any of the many books I have purchased from Amazon, but this author deserves a shout out. Her writing style is authentic and engaging, and the information she shares is fresh and useful (did I mention fun and edgy as well?). I will be buying multiple copies today so I can gift them to some very lucky people. Thank you for your hard work in putting this lovely book together, Melissa Joulwan. You are a kitchen goddess.
The cookbook offers so much good information too, not just great recipes. There is info about how to make a week's worth of meals on one day, easy snacks ideas for the Paleo diet, and ways to tweak the recipes to compliment different ethnic dishes. The pictures are fabulous. I highly recommend!
A word about the binding that everyone is complaining about... maybe the pages won't fall out if you learn how to use a bookmark instead of mashing it flat on your kitchen counter and breaking the binding so it stays open to the page you're on? It's common sense, people. If you manhandle a thin glue-bound book, it will probably fall apart.
The main reason I feel this book is the answer to all my cooking method questions is because of her simple food amounts-to-buy calculator based on family size (I have always bought either too much or too little) and "You know how you could do that?" section for almost every recipe which gives the cook an opportunity to customize the recipe to her/his heart's content. You are literally INVITED to mess with the recipes and make it your own. I have 8 cookbooks (which I've used about 1% of each before allowing them to succumb to hibernation on the high shelf) and have read countless food blogs and none of them ever made me as comfortable with changing it up as Well Fed. Last but not least, it is worth the time investment to learning and practicing her Weekly Cookup method as it will really build a good habit of efficiently meal planning and cooking in your life. It has been a long time goal of mine to cook weekly and this book was the #1 factor in getting me to that goal.
As far as recipes go... I would recommend making every one of the 20 I made so far. I am on day 11 of my official whole 30 (having already done a 17 day trial run leading up to thanksgiving 2015) and planning on trying her homemade mayo, moroccan meatballs, tuna waldorf salad, best chicken ever and char siu recipes in the next two weeks. Favorite recipes so far: Pad Thai, Chocolate Chili, Cocoa Cauliflower and that spicy/creamy Butternut Squash bake, but I would make all of them again! Additionally, I have a family member with Type 1 diabetes and can say that they have had a great time adapting to all of these recipes with no crazy glucose spikes.
Where I'm coming from: I LOVE FOOD. I work a full time corporate job and I would consider myself a wannabe cook, among other things. I have always loved baking sweets, but cooking real food... not so much. I also love trying different international cuisines, especially Chinese, but sadly I never feel like I can make them at home because I don't understand the major ingredient players that differentiate a French dish from a Moroccan dish all that well, etc. I also was overwhelmed by the large, 200+ page cookbooks. I believe that Well Fed has helped me overcome this aversion to trying to make all the different foods I love eating so much because I can trust each recipe will come out delicious if I follow her main directions. Thank you so much Melissa!
