These chorizo meatballs from Melissa Joulwan of The Clothes Make The Girl are amazing. I made them last weekend and intended to take a photo — but they were so good we ended up eating them all! Fortunately, Melissa was kind enough let me share the incredible recipe and photo from her new cookbook, Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat. And provide a copy of Well Fed 2 to give away!
Well Fed 2 is more than just great recipes. It starts with helpful information sections including the basics of paleo, 30 reasons to do a Whole30, and tips for socializing. Then it goes into paleo versions of just about any food you're craving. My favorite chapter is Burgers, Balls and Bangers. It has recipes for 15 international flavors, instructions on how to make them into patties, meatballs or sausages — and how to cook them in the oven, on the grill, or on the stovetop. All with meat variations and suggested go-alongs. I think this one chapter will keep me supplied with dinner ideas for a long time.
I love that there are so many international recipes throughout the book — from Deconstructed Gyro to Thai Basil Beef. There are paleo versions of dishes inspired by Mexican, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines. If you're following an Autoimmune Protocol version of the paleo diet, over 100 of the recipes have AIP adaptations. And if you're doing a Whole30, all but two of the recipes in Well Fed 2 are Whole 30 compliant. With over 200 recipes and quick meal ideas, this book is a great paleo resource.
