Here's what you won't find in a new Paleo cookbook: Recipes requiring grains, legumes, soy, sugar, dairy and alcohol. Here's what you will get: More than 200 recipes and ideas that are high protein, low carb and Paleo-perfect for pleasing your palate! Melissa Joulwan has produced a gotta-get-it guide to creating healthy meals in "Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat" (click for ordering information).
In addition to recipes, Melissa provides guidance on understanding the non-physical reasons why so many of us eat, tips on enjoying a healthy social life and even international cuisine.
For those who think of a Paleo diet as too restrictive, Melissa proves you deliciously wrong with recipes ranging from ice cream to noodles. Got kids in the house? Fear not: The traditional burgers will have them beaming, as will the assorted snacks that are perfect for that "Hey, I'm hungry" after-school panic.
And for those new to the Paleo life, we highly recommend Melissa's first book: "Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat" (click for ordering details). It features more than 115 recipes full of flavor. All are grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, sugar-free and oh-so-delicious.
