We got a surprising surprise on Friday: Well Fed 2 is available for pre-order on Amazon!
In fact, there was a brief time over the weekend when the Top 20 cookbooks on Amazon included Well Fed at #18 and Well Fed 2 at #19! It looked like this, and it was nutso for us (in the very best way possible).
Yeah, that’s right! For a tiny moment in time, we were ranked higher than Paul Prudhomme!
What’s most shocking about this news is that Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat isn’t quite finished yet. Ssshhhhh…. let’s keep that our little secret. All of the recipes and food photos are finished, but there’s still editing and supplemental photography to be completed before the book hits stores on October 22.
But just in case you’re super excited — and I really hope you are — and you’d like to pre-order a copy now, here are some details about the new cookbook, so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.
There are almost 140 recipes, including ideas for non-standard paleo breakfasts; simple, “no recipe required” ideas for fast, delicious meals; and 15 totally kickass, international meatball recipes — plus plenty of “You Know How You Could Do That” suggestions.
Because I’m a stick in the mud (who only wants the best for you and for me), there are no paleo desserts, no added sweeteners, no overly-fatty cuts of meat or deep-fried things (no matter how much we all might love them). All but one of the recipes are Whole30 approved (I’m looking at you, Banana Pecan Ice Cream), and they all passed my very stringent guidelines for deliciousness that doesn’t compromise on good health. This list is just a sample of the yumminess we’ve got in store for you…

Some of the recipes are based on dishes I’ve already published here on my blog, but all of them have been re-tested and updated for Maximum Flavor Power™.
More Than Recipes
Just as the original Well Fed included information that went beyond the recipes, the front sections of Well Fed 2 offer helpful advice to make it easier to feed yourself and your family — without going nuts buying special ingredients or spending all your free time in the kitchen. I’ve also included more info about how my recipes fit into the Whole30, along with helpful advice for upgrading your eating habits for optimal health and happiness.
While this cookbook is not 100% compliant with the autoimmune protocol of paleo, I have included detailed information for how to modify the recipes to eliminate problematic ingredients without compromising the taste of the recipe. About 52 of the recipes can easily be modified to comply with the limitations of the AIP.
Melissa and Dallas reviewed every recipe and gave a big thumbs up to all of them for inclusion during a Whole30 except one: the Banana Pecan Ice Cream. That means for Whole30-ers — or people like me who eat Whole30 style at home most of the time — there are more than 140 recipes to (happily) get you through the month.
When we release the print version, a PDF version will be available, too — and Kindle is coming… probably in December or January. For a variety of reasons, we need to release the print version first, so you digital peeps will have to be a little patient (or make do with the PDF version for a while). And just like with the original Well Fed, you can get the PDF version for $1 when you buy the print book (and we’ll donate that $1 to a deserving charity). We’ll also donate $1 of every PDF sale to the charity, too.
Enough Talk. Photos!
Every recipe is accompanied by a full-page, full-color photo — and there are lots of other photos throughout, along with sidebars, illustrations, and other tasty tidbits to fill the pages and your imagination with mind-blowingly awesome ideas.
Official Release: October 22
Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat will be
