Are you "Well Fed"??
There's a new kid on the Paleo Cookbook block and you're definitely going to want to make this one your friend! The latest and greatest debut will help make sure you are "Well Fed" into the New Year. So, who is this 'new kid'? It's "Well Fed - Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat", (and who doesn't??). This one comes from Melissa Joulwan - you may know her from the awesome blog 'The Clothes Make the Girl' (and if you don't, I highly recommend you head over and check it out!). Melissa has put together a super - grain, sugar, legume and dairy free recipe collection that even the most culinarily (I made that word up...) challenged folks can successfully make and enjoy.
There's no fancy techniques or ingredients and it's not an intimidating 500 page tome that requires a magnifying glass and french dictionary to read. Nope, Melissa definitely employed the KISS principal - and that's a good thing! So, what do you get? Well, there's the option of a 175 page soft cover book OR a PDF ebook - your choice!! And you can even download a FREE, 30 page PDF preview to check it out - it's a 'try before you buy' bonus!! Once you decide to make "Well Fed" part of your kitchen cookbook collection (and you will...), prepare to be 'Well Fed' for life!
The forward was written by none other than Dallas and Melissa from over at the Whole9, so be prepared to be entertained and if that's not enough - every single recipe is Whole30 friendly!! No modifications, omissions or guess work! PERFECT! If you're a 'cook once eat all week' kind of chef (welcome to my world...), Melissa helps you set up your one-day 'Cooking WOD' - and there's a 60 minute cut-off time... 3,2,1, GO!!! You also find out how to stock your Paleo pantry and what kitchen equipment you'll need to be successful.
I know - get to the important stuff already... You're all thinking, "what about the recipes?" and "are there pictures?" Um, AWESOME, simple, and delicious!!! The pictures are great! The recipes - Meat and Spinach Muffins, Cocoa Toasted Cauliflower, Jicama Home Fries, Meatza Pie (no special 'flours' needed!!), Caramelized Coconut Chips... I've only had this book for four days and those are the ones I've made so far - all very simple and so good!!!
Even if you don't think you need another Paleo Cookbook (this is not even a possible thought in my world), check out the FREE, 30 page sampler - you won't be sorry!!! And, if you still have some 'last minute' holiday shopping to do - here's your solution, no trip to the mall required!!
Are you hungry? Get "Well Fed".
