In Episode 740 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we’ve got a returning guest who is a bestselling Paleo cookbook author and blogger named Melissa Joulwan. With the huge influx of Paleo and low-carb books that have come on the market in the past few years, a handful of those authors have risen to the top of the heap with bestselling books penetrating our culture with the healthy real food message. People like Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf, Mark Sisson, Sarah Fragoso, Dr. William Davis, Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, and others are leading the way–but they’re not alone. If you look at the top of the bestselling Paleo books charts on Amazon one of the most surprising names is someone who doesn’t receive the kind of accolades for her work that she deserves. Her name is Melissa Joulwan from “The Clothes Make The Girl” blog (listen to my previous podcast interview with her in Episode 554) and her December 2011 self-published debut book release Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat has been a phenomenal success featuring Paleo-styled recipes with an international and ethnic flair. Now she’s back with a much-needed sequel book Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat (read my Amazon review) with more of the kind of recipes and information you’ve come to know and love from this awesome and fantabulous Paleo chef!
Listen in as Melissa and I talk about the surprising success of her first book, how she got the book into Costco stores, why she started her own publishing company named after her cat Smudge, whether she’s interested in signing other authors to her company, the negative reviews that make her laugh, how her original idea for a book sequel was rejected by her readers, her idea for her next cookbook will be recipes that are quick and easy, the quirky “Burgers, Balls and Bangers” section of her book, her Paleo-fied recreation of the “magical” sticky rice, the vegetable-based pancakes she makes on occasion, how these recipes are the food her family actually eats, all of the new recipes in the book were prepared at least five times before being included, the recipes are Whole30-approved, the ongoing issues in her health that required her to go on the autoimmune protocol of the Paleo diet, how she adapts the traditional international cuisine from old cookbooks into Paleo-friendly dishes, why over half of the recipes (over 100 of them) in this cookbook can be adapted for people on the autoimmune protocol, the culture of shame that we have put around food, the strong pull of hormones in driving people to eat, the distinctions she shares about between emotional appetite vs. true hunger, why you won’t find any Paleo treats in her books (why she describes herself as “a stick in the mud”), her belief that you don’t deserve a sweet treat everyday, the deserving charity Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves a portion of her book sales will go towards, and so much more!
