Preparing quality food is among the most caring things we can do for ourselves and the people we love. That’s why Well Fed: Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat is packed with recipes for food that you can eat every day, along with easy tips to make sure it takes as little time as possible to get healthy, delicious food into your well-deserving mouth. If you count meals and snacks, we feed ourselves about 28 times each week. All of the Well Fed recipes — made with zero grains, legumes, soy, sugar, dairy, or alcohol — were created so you can enjoy your food every time.
The two essential tricks for happy, healthy eating are being prepared and avoiding boredom. Well Fed explains how to get in the habit of a Weekly Cookup so that you have ready-to-go food for snacks and meals every day. It will also show you how to make Hot Plates, a mix-and-match approach to combining basic ingredients with spices and seasonings to take your taste buds on a world tour. The recipes are as simple as possible, without compromising taste, and they’ve been tested extensively to minimize work and maximize flavor.
With 115+ original recipes and variations, this book will help you see that paleo eating, too often defined by what you give up, is really about what you’ll gain: health, vitality, a light heart, and memorable meals to be shared with the people you love.

”[S]he turned her system into a cookbook full of mouthwatering recipes. But it’s more than just a collection of recipes. It’s a guide — a how-to manual geared at helping the laziest among us run our kitchens and feed our families… Like Melissa, this book has attitude, and the recipes have spunk.” — Food Renegade
”Melissa’s sassy and fun attitude also comes through in the design and text of the book. I’m not sure I’ve ever laughed out loud reading a cookbook before.” —- Breaking Muscle
Melissa has been following a 90% strict paleo diet since 2009 when she 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.
Well Fed is her second book. Her first is Rollergirl: Totally True Tales from the Track, a memoir of her experiences as one of the founders of the Texas Rollergirls, the original Flat Track Roller Derby league. She has appeared on the Today Show and Good Morning America in her roller skates and fishnets. These days, she’s hung up her skates, and her workouts are just as likely to include yoga and meditation, as lifting heavy things and trying to stay ahead of the CrossFit stopwatch.
In 2012, Melissa’s blog won the Homie Award from The Kitchen for ”Best Healthy Cooking Blog” — and Well Fed was the winner the 2012 ”Best Cookbook” Award at the San Francisco Book Festival. She is also a Community Ambassador for Experience Life magazine and has been a featured chef for U.S. Wellness Meats.
She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband Dave and their cat Smudge.
