No one is paying me to say this.  Shannon, an awesome 6am-er, let me borrow Well Fed.   It’s a Paleo Recipe Book by by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, creators of Whole9.

This is a great book for Paleo newbies and I’m going to tell you Why:

  • It includes tips on what you’ll need for the recipes like a list of spices, pantry essentials, what you should keep in the freezer, how to calculate how much meat you should buy at the beginning of the week, mixing tools, cooking with fats, and serving sizes.
  • The authors understand you have a busy life. They explain how to prep your food ahead of time, and I think they’re on to something when they call their prep day the “Cooking Wod.”  How fast can you prep your food for the week!? AH! Great Idea! (Once in a while I take the dishes out of the dishwasher for time!)
  • They have recipes called “hot plates.”  They are basically stir frys that take very little time, but you vary seasonings to switch up your cultural palate.  They tell you what you need to prep and what seasonings to have on hand so you can have meal on the table, pronto!
  • What I love most about the recipes is the authors give you options.  They suggest what vegetables or meats might taste good  with the recipe, or how you can use the recipe to make a totally different meal, or how you can change up the ingredients to taste mediterranean, tex-mex, and more.

Now. If I knew how to add pictures on my mac, I’d include photos.  But, we only have words for now.

    Meghan got this cookbook a couple weeks ago and LOVES it. I haven’t even looked at it, and I love it too. We’ve tried a few recipes out of it, and they’re amazing! Try the Pad Thai, if you decide to get it. You won’t be disappointed…
