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.
The quality of the book itself is not bad but it's not the greatest. A lot of reviewers were complaining that their book fell apart and while mine is holding together just fine, I would say that it's not the best quality of cover/material but that's minor and not the reason I'm giving it a 4 star.
My big annoyance with this book - which my friend who LOVES the book also agrees - is her prep times: 5 minutes!!! Whatever. The prep times are so off the charts that it's not even funny. Anything that says 5 minutes to prep, set aside a good 30 to 45 minutes IF you have help in the kitchen. And there's no 5 minute clean up with what you need to get these meals ready but the meals are delicious.
We used her spice mix and her sweet potato with pecans (well she uses squash but it's okay to replace it) and one of her meats. I also made the Waldorf Tuna salad today (I added some lemon juice too), it was all very delicious. The recipes ARE delicious, no doubt about it, and super healthy because, well, they are Paleo baby!
There are very few dessert recipes here so if you want to feed your sweet tooth with approved paleo desserts, look elsewhere. Overall, I like how she helps you prepare for your meals in advance, but we have yet to do the whole weekly cook-up.
