  • Lauren says:

    OMG, literally JUST received my copy of Well Fed 2 about five minutes ago, and I’m already counting down the hours and minutes until I can leave work and start cooking!

    • Mel says:

      That’s so awesome! What are making first?!

    • telly says:

      Me too! It’s beautiful. I feel like I’m 9 & just went shopping for school supplies. 🙂 I can’t wait to play with Well Fed 2!

      BTW, I tried to access the link to order the ebook for $1 but the link didn’t work for me (page not found).

      • Mel says:

        That’s on our to-do list for today! Amazon started shipping books early and we didn’t have everything quite ready on the web site 🙂

        Give us a day or two, and it should be working.

        • telly says:

          No problem – I figured as much. Just glad to have my copy early (even if it means a little more work for you ;)).

  • Erin says:

    Hi Mel! I am a recent convert to clean eating Paleo-style, inspired and encouraged by some of the fantastic people at my CrossFit gym. I am so glad I found your blog and Well Fed and I’m SUPER excited to get my copy of Well Fed 2. You make me feel like it’s within my reach to cook healthy clean food on a regular basis. “No big deal.” 🙂 Thanks for your blog and all you share. Big fan.

    • Mel says:

      Thank YOU for stopping by to let me know you’re enjoying Well Fed. Wait ’til you see WF2! Congratulations on making the switch to paleo. YAY!

  • Carmen Vela says:

    October 17th marked a month since I started preparing foods from Well Fed. I weighed myself on that day and I’ve lost 10 lbs. since the last time I was weighed at the doctor’s on July 24th. I believe that Well Fed recipes speeded up the weight loss. I’ve been doing DVD workouts and yoga since August. Since I’m 57 years old, it takes more dedication to get the weight off. Most importantly, I’m hoping my cholesterol and A1C numbers have improved. Don’t want to be on diabetes medication. The food is delicious and savory.

    • Mel says:

      Congratulations on your new eating habits and weight loss. That’s AWESOME! Hope you’re feeling great… and yes, I hear you: I’m 45 and it’s much tougher to see results now then when I was younger, but it is possible, so GOOD FOR YOU for going after it.
