Why I love Well Fed 2

Why I love Well Fed 2

Why I love Well Fed 2 My friend, Melissa Joulwan, has outdone herself again with her latest cookbook Well Fed 2. This follow up to 2011’s Well Fed has something for everyone. I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy and I want to share my favorite parts of the book with you. Some of my friends have already tested the delicious recipes and blogged about the experience. See NomNom’s review here. While I’m earmarking recipes to make, I wanted to get my review out there before the launch date for the book, which is October 22nd. http://hospitalitybusiness.broad.msu.edu/Account/files/ First, some background. Mel and I have not actually met in real life yet. I stumbled across her blog several years ago, when I first set out on my Paleo journey. I immediately fell in love with her, spending time reading through her blog and learning about how she utilized the principles of ancestral nutrition to address her thyroid issues. As many of you know, I started on my Paleo journey to address my autoimmune thyroid illness, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Over the past few years, Mel and I have exchanged emails about everything from thyroid woes (starting the #FUthyroid on Twitter) to book recommendations to a 30 day gratitude practice via email. I am so happy for Mel and proud of her for the beautiful cookbook she is ready to launch. The book covers everything from sauces and seasonings to protein to fruits. Each page is beautifully laid out with a photo of the recipe (taken by Mel’s husband, Dave) and complete directions for creating the recipe at home. I especially appreciate that Mel lists the prep time, marinating time, and cook time – I’m sure I’m not the only person to come home from work ready to make a recipe only […]

Perfect “Hard Boiled” Eggs

Happy New Year! I know that many of you are doing a Whole 30 right now to kick off the new year right. The question I’m most frequently asked when I work with a new consulting client is: “What will I eat for breakfast?” (Usually said like “BUUUTT, Whaaaaaaaaat will I eat for breeeeaaaaakfast?!?!) As I made my breakfast this morning, I thought it might be a good idea to share how we make perfect “hard boiled” eggs. Since great minds think alike, my friend, Michelle (AKA NomNom), did a post on hard boiled eggs this morning too! I have quotes on the title of this post because to get a perfect result, you don’t boil the eggs at all! The perfect egg is steamed, not boiled. That’s right – you heard it here first! I only know this because my husband went to culinary school (i.e. I am totally spoiled). Here is our “recipe” for perfect hard boiled eggs: Step 1: Start with high quality eggs.   percent   faxless payday cash loans               Payday Loan Direct Lenders 100 Acceptance Step 2: Place the eggs in a steamer basket while you boil a small amount of water in the bottom pot of the steamer.               Step 3: Once the water is boiling, place the steamer basket with the eggs on top of the pot of water. Place the lid on top.                   Step 4: Set timer for 15 min. Step 5: When timer goes off, take steamer basket out, place eggs in a bowl of very cold water.                   Step 6: Tap each egg on the counter to crack the shell. […]

The Whole 30, Days 14-28

First, I have to apologize that my posting has been so sporadic for the past 2 weeks! I got a bit busy with this: http://bit.ly/y8eOVh And this: http://bit.ly/zNQ07f Followed by this: http://bit.ly/xIgP5V Well, and then this: http://bit.ly/w0O1Jq inaccurate credit Then I was mentioned here: http://bit.ly/yzi5NO And by the end of this past week I was like this: Click Here! So, after chilling out yesterday and getting a good night’s sleep, I’m ready to carry on with the regularly scheduled programming! I took lots of pictures of meals that I will share with you; but, many are repeats of the past meals so they are not that exciting. What is exciting is that The Whole 30 no longer feels like this strange science experiment I’m doing; it just feels like part of my life. I would venture to guess that making these changes feel like part of your life is part of the goal of doing The Whole 30 (Dallas and Melissa are so smart, and so sneaky). They snuck right into my brain and convinced it that it doesn’t NEED anything! It just WANTS everything. I would have told you that by age 41 I knew the difference between needs and wants (and in most areas I do); but, when it comes to food and drink, I think we are all a bit confused. We are confused because we take something that is a true biological need (food and drink) and layer all sorts of wants over top of it (Paleo chocolate cake, NorCal Margaritas, Organic creamer, a bit of sugar in the coffee, a glass of wine (or three) with dinner, lots of good cheese on the big healthy salad). And we feel really justified in our reasoning behind consuming these items (I had a stressful day and I need a glass of wine […]

The Whole 30, Days 9-13

Hi everyone! This week kind of got away from me, and I wasn’t as good about posting meals every day; but, I did take some photos, and I had a breakthrough in my understanding of why I am doing The Whole 30. Breakfasts this week were a bit easier, thanks to some planning ahead. The Nutty Blueberry Protein Balls from Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals were a fast, tasty way to start off the day with my coffee (funny, maybe I am adapting to not having sugar because my coffee doesn’t taste as bad as it did the first week). The other amazing food item that has made my week easier is Primal Pacs. If you haven’t tried these, stop reading this and go order some right now! I have been eating beef jerky for the past 7-8 months; but, I never really loved it before. This beef jerky is so good! The Primal Pacs have Organic Grass Fed/Grass Finished beef jerky, mango, macadamia nuts, Marcona Almonds, cranberries and spices. They have The Whole 30 blessing, they travel well and they rock! You can tell I love them (I even lick the bag!) I have begged the indoor climbing gym (Sportrock) to sell these at the front desk for the gluten free Paleo crowd and they are looking into it – they got in touch with the Paleo Pacs peeps yesterday. Yea, networking! My other breakfasts this week included eggs and sausages Banana, avocado with olive oil, macadamias and sausages Lunches were either Primal Pacs or leftovers from dinner the night before with the random baked sweet potato or butternut squash on the side. On to dinners! Burgers with butternut squash and lettuce buns (no photo). Beef with carrots, celery, onions, demi glace and rosemary (heaven!) poor […]
