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.
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.
Her first cookbook Well Fed appeared on the Wall Street Journal best sellers list, and Well Fed 2 was named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon.com and was a Washington Post best seller. Melissa is 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.
Melissa, her husband David, and their cat Smudge are all currently living in Prague, Czech Republic where they're learning to adapt Czech and European cuisine to fit the paleo framework.

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.
I bought this about five years ago, before I learned how to cook, before I did some world travel and before I lived in a big city. As a total novice in the kitchen, with a background from the American mid-west, I found the recipes quite foreign--not so much in the names, but what the flavors should be...and I didn't like many of them and was turned off to paleo in general because of it. Now, with a few years in the kitchen under my belt cooking up some delicious paleo/prmial meals for myself, family and friends, I feel pretty confident will my home-cook skills: having returned to Well Fed, I still don't like it all that much...but keep in mind, I'm just a home cook.
I think Melissa's recipes are a little intimidating to the uninitiated. I also feel they miss the mark and many of the flavors are unbalanced...for example, the sunshine sauce asks for 2 tablespoons of lime juice (!) and misses that balance between a little bit sweet and a little umami. The novice cook probably wouldn't know how to "fix" that recipe and still keep it paleo. (My suggestion: add only a splash of lime juice (plus more only to taste), some honey (start with a tablespoon and go from there, to taste), a touch more garlic and ginger and you have a pretty nice paleo sauce...maybe not exactly peanut sauce, but certainty inspired by. Almond butter, which you can find at most supermarkets now, is also a good substitute if you can't find sunflower seed butter.) But that's just me, you do your thing and adjust flavors as you see fit, like we all do with recipes. I think Melissa's ideas are a creative and an interesting spring board for those with experience in the kitchen with at least a basic palette to reference, but overall, they're off balance and challenging for the newbie. Plus, you can find many (most?) of her recipes in this book online now. Good Luck!
One of my favourite recipes in this book is the cumin roasted carrots one (page 115). For that one alone it's worth buying the book. I'm truly well fed now and if you're following a paleo/low carb lifestyle I'm sure you'll enjoy the delicious meals in this book as much as I do. Even if you're not following any special diet this book is still worth buying, because who doesn't enjoy good food (healthy or not?)? I could hardly tell the difference between a traditional cottage pie and her paleo version of it. If anything, I liked hers more. So go ahead and buy the book and never eat bland tasting food again!
