All 200 recipes and Quick Meal ideas in Well Fed 2 are made with zero grains, legumes, soy, sugar, dairy, and alcohol -- without sacrificing fun and flavor. The recipes are easy to prepare and were tested extensively so they work every time -- and so you don't have to spend all your free time in the kitchen.
Includes 200 recipes, variations, and Quick Meal ideas
Well Fed 2 includes 110 original recipes, plus 45 of Melissa's popular ''You Know How You Could Do That'' variations. You'll also find 44 Quick Meal ideas (no recipe required!) and tips for turning individual dishes into multi-course meals.
More than recipes
The book opens with information to help readers manage their relationship with food, including ways to identify emotional appetite versus true hunger, 30 reasons to do a Whole30, tips for socializing while keeping good habits, and a call to action to develop the best version of themselves.
International cuisine made healthier
Paleo can seem restrictive, so a broad array of international recipes have been paleo-ized for delicious flavor without sacrificing good nutrition, including Deconstructed Gyro, Thai Basil Beef, Chinese Five-Spice Pork Ribs, Lemon Lamb Tagine, Tod Mun Chicken Cakes, Belly Dance Beet Salad, Garlic Creamed Spinach, Sesame Cucumber Noodles, and even Banana Pecan Ice Cream.
Burgers, Balls & Bangers
Inspired by international sausage flavors, these 15 meatball recipes can also be shaped into patties or sausages, then grilled, baked, or pan-fried. It's exponential meat goodness!
Ideas for meals and snacks that don't require a recipe, but add zing to everyday eating for paleo newbies and veterans.
More than 100 of the recipes and Quick Meal ideas in Well Fed 2 can easily and tastily be modified to comply with the autoimmune protocol of paleo. The book includes detailed instructions for adapting the recipes for people who need to take extra care.
All of the recipes are approved for use during a Whole30 (whole9life.com/category/whole-30) except the Sweet Potato ''Waffle'' and the Banana Pecan Ice Cream.
Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
The PDF version of the book is available for $1 to everyone who buys a printed copy. Those dollars will be donated to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, an organization devoted to getting clean cooking methods into the kitchens of developing countries.
Well Fed 2 proves that the Paleo diet -- too often defined by what you give up -- is really about what you gain: good health, a light heart, and memorable meals to share with the people you love.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
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.
