Well Fed 30-Minute Paleo Recipes Magazine
Yesterday was the official launch day of a project we’ve been working on since last spring: It’s another special edition of Well Fed in magazine form!
It’s a “greatest hits” compilation of 30-minute meals from all three Well Fed cookbooks, including easy, crazy-good recipes like Ginger-Lime Shrimp, Velvet Stir-Fry, Pizza Noodles, Korean Beef with Kimchi Relish, Moroccan Cabbage Sauté, Crispy Chicken Livers with Cauliflower Rice, Sunrise Scramble, Pan-Fried Sardines, and dozens more — plus there’s paleo how-to information and other informative essays, all pulled from the Well Fed trilogy.
The magazine is on sale now—in the checkout lane!—of every Whole Foods store in the United States. How exciting is that?!
Plus it’s in other food-lovers’ grocers like Sprouts, Mrs. Green’s, Balducci’s, Fresh Market, Natural Grocers, Earth Fare, and indie co-ops, as well as Barnes & Noble, Sam’s, and Costco.
I’m about 4000 miles from being able to buy a copy, so if you spot the magazine in a local store, please take a photo and tag me! I’m @meljoulwan on both Twitter and Instagram, and I’d love to see our magazine in its natural habitat.
Heads up! If you already own the Well Fed cookbooks, you probably don’t want to buy this magazine because you already have the all of the recipes and info. But… I did hear from one of my followers who already owns all three Well Fed cookbooks— she bought a copy because it’s so convenient to have all the really fast recipes in one place!
The magazine is also a fun, inexpensive way to introduce friends and family to paleo concepts and recipes without the gravity of handing them a big book. Dave and I agreed to produce this magazine because it seems like such a good way to connect with people who aren’t paleo yet, but are looking for a delicious, easy way to improve their health. What better way to reach people than the grocery store checkout lane?!
Here are a few photos of what’s inside:
I must give a loving shout-out to our design partner Michel Vrana—talented, patient, good-natured, and super detail-oriented (which I love love love), and a badass cook. By day, he’s primarily a book cover designer—see his powerful designs here. Michel has been an integral member of our team for years; he designed our first magazine back in 2015, Well Fed Weeknights, and now Well Fed 30-Minute Paleo Recipes. I would be lost without his excellent taste and eagle eyes.

Pulled pork. I know you can speed it up in a pressure cooker but still…
Salisbury Steak .
While I make it Paleo, it is very time consuming.
Pot roast! I have found the key to making delicious melt in your mouth roast is to bake in the oven for 2-3 hours. It is so flavorful and all the juices comes together but it takes so long.
Ok maybe I’m sucking up here, but your Citrus Carnitas! They are a huge hit in my house!
I wish I could make my own grain-free pizza in 30 mins!
I wish any kind of tender roast was done in 30 mins.
I wish I could make tandoori chicken in half an hour!
Pork, steak, fancy shrimp!!!
I wish I could make Latin American Chicken in 30 minutes (instead of allowing time to marinade). They’re so good but allowing the time to marinade is hard! Worth it in the end, though. 🙂
Shepherds Pie or Cottage Pie from the First Well Fed cookbook,. I love it, but it takes so long to prepare! Especially with the addition of the cauliflower mash on top.
Wow What to pick. Your meatball recipes have really inspired me! The Italian Meatballs are staple in my house also love the turkey/cranberry ones. The Nigerian Beef is also a hit and so good. I love your sauces a well. Your cookbooks made our whole 30 adventure a reality. I lost 62 lbs and am still going strong. Thank you
Roast beef! Now that it finally feels like fall here, I want a beef roast like an hour ago! 😉
Pulled pork or meat loaf.
Pulled pork! I can make it in my pressure cooker quickly, but it is just “ok”. Soooo much better when it spends hours in the crockpot.
Chicken Marsala or chicken pot pie.
Definetly the Pad Thai
I wish Piña Colada Chicken took 30 minutes. I guess it cam but when trying to prep and cook while having a 3 year old run around, it takes longer.
chicken curry 🙂
Mmmm…chicken pot pie. Definitely!
Compliant chicken tikka masala ?
Hey! CONGRATULATIONS, Meghan! You won the giveaway. I’m sending you email now. YAY!
Usually, I don’t go to Whole Foods very often because there is no one on my way or in my town, but I will for sure go now to get the magazine.
I’ am not sure I even cook anything that takes longer than 30 minutes to make – at least if we only count prep time, not cooking time.
Maybe oven roasted potatoes and veggies?
Pot roast. Thanks for the giveaway ✌?
I’m just about to make your Shepard’s Pie, and I guarantee it will take me longer than 30 min! I keep remembering that you say you’re pretty fast in the kitchen…well, I am quite the opposite! Ooohh…and your paleo pad thai. If all the steps were 30 min start to finish, I would probably eat it every day 😉
Roast pork, Sancocho (a latin stew), stuffed chicken or pork chops (any kind of stuffing), lasagna rolls.
Roast chicken! Maybe with an Insta Pot?
Chili! I love it, and it’s pretty easy; it just take so long for the flavors to really come together.
Thai anything…so many ingredients. *sigh*
I love pad Thai but a grain free version!
I wish carnitas could be made in 30 minutes or less!
I’d say your perfect mole meatballs (they’re under 45 now) or a butternut squash “noodle” lasagna!
Chicken pot pie or shepherds pie!
Hi – For how long will the magazine be available?
I believe it’s usually on the stands for three months—and it will eventually be available on Amazon, too, I think. We’re planning to add it to my online store, too.
King Ranch Casserole (can you please make it paleo too ?)
Your deconstructed gyro recipe! It’s super simple and hands off as is but it does take some time. I’d love to be able to whip it up in 30 minutes
Love love love!!!!!! can’t wait to get a copy of the magazine!
Id love to make beef bourguignon in less than 30 minutes!!!! Hah
Lasagna…..with prep and cook….smelling it for 30+ mins kills me!
Braised anything! Love the low and slow flavor development but the “slow” gets me sometimes 🙂
I wish your cinnamon beef stew with orange gremolata (my favorite!!) only took 30 minutes to make. It’s a labor of love. 🙂
Definatley Shephards pie…
Tiki masala . Thanks for all you do and a chance to win. I’m also a newsletter subscriber.
I wish your chocolate chili only took 30 minutes, but the long simmer is worth it!
Hey! CONGRATULATIONS, Kim! You won the giveaway. I’m sending you email now. YAY!
Chicken and dumplings. I miss these and wish I could find a 30 min paleo version. Thank you for all of your great recipes and cookup tips!
Giant delicious meatloaf.
Smoked, pulled pork
Wish tandoori chicken was doable in 30 min. — haven’t quite tried it yet but I know my family would love it.
Any baked goods, especially homemade bread!
Your Italian pork roast. It’s my absolute favorite meal, but the cooking time means I have to put it on the night before and then deal with it at breakfast time. That being said, I admit I have frequently eaten my breakfast straight out of the slow cooker without even bothering with a plate.
Wish tandoori chicken was doable in 30 min.
I would love be able to have Tandoori Chicken ready in 30 minutes. Thank you for the great giveaway ?
Pulled pork! And artichokes
I wish that roasted chicken only took 30 mins
A grain free pizza start to finish in less than 30 would be wonderful! Even more wonderful would be a complete kitchen clean up in under 30! 🙂 Would love have this magazine to share with friends!
Great idea! I will be buying these for a little something extra in my “favorite things” Christmas gifts!
Pulled pork for sure!
Asian pan fried dumplings would be great!
Braised cabbage – I always feel like it takes so much longer than it should!
WellFed’s Citrus Carnitas and Chocolate Chili – although it’s worth the wait! They are on high rotation in my household.
Anything worth eating is worth waiting for and preparing. However, I think a great big roasting chicken, roasted whole in the regular oven is a joy to behold and I wish it could be prepared in 30 minutes. I have all 3 of your cookbooks Melissa and love the design, the recipes and the fact that you can take any recipe and by substituting a few ingredients, have a completely different outcome so it is like having 5 or 6 recipes on one page. Brilliant!!!! It is what makes you stand out from the rest.
Thank you for buying all of our cookbooks! I’m really glad you like the variations—that part is always super fun for me.
Kalua Pork in 30 minutes would be awesome! I do make it in my instant pot so do save some time.
Pork Chile Verde. I know, Instapot…but I like the way it tastes out of my cast iron Dutch oven so much better.
I have 2 of your cookbooks and love them both! So many recipes I have tried and loved, but my favorite is “Greens with Potatoes and Sausage! Yummm!! it’s one of my husbands favs too!!! It’s easy to prepare and a great one for my food prep days to have later in the week!!!
roasted chicken with crispitty cruchitty skin!
PS: I read your post about bahn mi bowls and was making my own within seconds of getting home from work. total hit. LOVE!
Definitely the West African Chicken in Well Fed 2!
All-American Meatloaf. The cook time of one hour alone (not including prep!) makes it difficult to enjoy more than a few times a year.
Definitely Pad Thai.
Thank you for helping make my mom’s and my journey to paleo so easy and delicious!
Hey! CONGRATULATIONS, Carolyn! You won the giveaway. I’m sending you email now. YAY!
Chicken Fried rice
Pot roast with carrots and potatoes!
I would like your citrus carnitas…just dreaming here.
I wish Farmhouse Potato Bread was something I could eat-and that it was easy to make! Miss it!
Hey! CONGRATULATIONS, Vickie! You won the giveaway. I’m sending you email now. YAY!
Would love a roasted chicken in 30 minutes! But crockpot or oven is fine. The aromas they create are intoxicating. Meatballs are so good, labor intensive, but worth the effort.
I wish bone broth only took 30 minutes! I’m roasting bones now for Golden Cauliflower Soup next week
Pork carnitas! love them, trouble waiting 🙂
I love your bllog! I have been looking for a way to keep my family healthy and not be a slave to the kitchen. Thank you so…much for sharing ! We love lasagna and ratatouille . I’m not sure if those count?
pulled pork or roast
I wish I could roast a turkey in 30 minutes
I wish my Hungarian gramma’s handmade streusel only took 30 minutes to make.
It always took her most of the day. She would hand pull the dough until you could read through it. Best Streusel ever!
I am really excited about this collection of recipes!
Pad Thai. We would eat it weekly.
CARNITAS!! I’ve taken your recipe to the pressure cooker but I think it needs adjustment to the liquids.
Brisket or chicken-fried steak. I know I need to use my pressure cooker more!
Hmmm.. I wish a delicious, paleo casserole only took 30 minutes!! 🙂 Love all of your recipes BTW.
Congrats on your magazine “baby” ! What a great idea. Since I have all 3 cookbook, I immediately thought of friends that I could introduce to your recipes. My magic 30 minute recipe would be prime rib or any French recipe that usually takes hours.
Probably have to say shredded pork or pulled pork. I do it in the crockpot and it’s delicious but it’s an all day, albeit easy way to cook it.
Your pad Thai recipe….I’m slow in the kitchen but that dish is worth the effort! I have all 3 of your books, but I’d love to give a copy of the magazine to my Paleo curious coworker.
Looks like there is a lot of good stuff there.
If only croissants took only 30 minutes!
I wish I could make paleo lasagna in 15 minutes
The weekly cook up would be even better if it only took thirty minutes!
Not sure its possible with the need for simmer time, but the Chocolate Chili. Gotta win this since I live where there are none of the stores selling this!
Just got my Well Fed 30-Minute Recipes at Natural Grocers in Lakewood Co. GREAT store, love the Moroccan steak salad! I have all your cookbooks, but love this selection!
Thank you so much for buying the magazine AND our cookbooks! I’m glad you like the Moroccan Steak Salad… that’s a favorite of mine, too! Happy cooking to you.
When will this new magazine be available online – either in your store or amazon? Thanks!
I have it on my to-do list to add to our store; maybe by the end of next week? I’m not sure when it will be available on Amazon, but I’ll announce on my blog when it’s in my store. Thanks for asking!
