We’re thisclose to having a design for the cover of the cookbook, and I can’t wait to show that to you! Since we’re not quite ready for the big reveal, now seems like a fine time to share the cookbook title and a few sample photos to whet your appetite.
We held a title brainstorm with some of our smarty-pants friends last month. Fueled by sample recipes from the cookbook and maybe a little red wine, we covered giant post-its with ideas that ranged from silly to serious. As the night wore on, we culled down the possibilities. Then we chewed on them for a few days. And then we decided.
Well Fed: Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat
I’m very fortunate to have so many talented people working with me on this project! The foreward is being written by the always fabulous Melissa & Dallas Hartwig of Whole9Life. As I mentioned earlier this summer, the ridiculously-talented Kathleen Shannon is doing our design, and my husband Dave is the master behind the camera. Smudge is my writing assistant and often, despite my objections, helps with the food styling.
So what’s inside?
Well Fed is packed with recipes for food you can eat every day, along with easy tips to make sure it takes as little time as possible to get you from “What the *$&^@ am I going to eat?” to stuffing paleo food into your well-deserving mouth.
If you count meals and snacks, we feed ourselves about 28 times each week. All of the recipes – made with no grains, legumes, soy, sugar, dairy, or alcohol – were created so you can enjoy your food every time. Calorie-dense ingredients like dried fruit and nuts show up as flavoring, instead of primary ingredients, and there’s a balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats, so you don’t have to worry about that stuff – you can just eat.
I know the true way to your stomach is by tempting your eyes, so here are a few sample photos; every recipe will accompanied by a full-page pic. Click the images if you’re hungry for the expanded view.
We’re pushing hard to hit our October 1 deadline for writing and photography – thanks in advance for your patience if I don’t update my blog as frequently as usual. To make it up to you, there will be all kinds of fun give-aways and sneak peeks this fall. And Well Fed will be released – as a printed book and an ebook (PDF) – the first week of December. Thanks for your supportive comments and enthusiasm throughout this process – you’re helping me more than you know.
