FREE Well Fed 28-Day Paleo Meal Plan

If you’re like my husband David and me, you’ve been social distancing for somewhere between 30 days and FOREVER! (We’re on Day 42 as I type this.) I’m a professional food-making machine most of the time, but even I’m growing weary of figuring out our meals every day.

For the next two weeks, we’re making our ‘Well Fed 28-Day Paleo Meal Plan’ FREE to you in the hopes it will make your life a little easier and a lot more delicious.

Download your FREE copy right here — or keep reading for more details. (Our system only allows 1000 downloads per day, so if you run into trouble, try again the next day. Or email me a, and I’ll help you out.)

This is three weeks of meals with EVERYTHING figured out.

With this meal plan, you’ll eat irresistible food every day—breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. The plan includes three full weeks of recipes, shopping lists, and how-to instructions — and there’s info to teach you how to make your own meal plans using my template, so by the end, you’ll be able to continue on your own (or you can repeat the first three weeks as long as you like).

My approach starts with a once-a-week cooking session: The Weekly Cookup. That prepares you for several days of eating without cooking from scratch every time — which means you can relax and spend your time doing other stuff you enjoy.

The plan also includes recipes that come together in about 30 minutes. Leftovers can be transformed into something new for lunch later in the week. Because nothing kicks off the weekend like a leisurely breakfast, there are also brunch-worthy recipes to start your Saturdays and Sundays right.

Each week of the meal plan includes:
— menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—plus snack ideas
— detailed shopping lists arranged by grocery store section
— step-by-step how-to instructions for a Weekly Cookup
— recipes for every dish on the menu
— day-by-day eating and cooking reminders to keep the plan on track
— tips for packing lunches to go
— printable menus, shopping lists, and templates for your own meal plans

Let’s talk about the food.

With the recipes in this ebook, your taste buds will always be exploring. You’ll eat irresistible meals like Slow-Cooker Mississippi Beef, Sushi Bar Tuna Salad with Nori Chips, Hungarian Goulash, Italian Sausage Meatballs with Zucchini Noodles, Breakfast Tacos, Cashew Chicken, Thai Larb, BBQ Burgers with Ranch Potato Salad, Eggs Benedict, and so many more.

These recipes are anti-inflammatory, which means there are no grains (or gluten), dairy, legumes, soy, or added sugars. The recipes feature high-quality protein, a rainbow of fresh fruits and vegetables, a variety of luscious fats, and plenty of herbs and spices to… spice things up.

But… if you or other people in your household aren’t eating paleo, you can easily add grains and/or dairy to the meals as you like. There are no paleo police in quarantine.

Let’s look inside.

The ebook is organized into four weeks of menus, shopping lists, recipes, and the very-detailed, and kind-of magical, Day-By-Day Instructions. I’ve included a few of my most popular recipes in the meal plans, and there are dozens of new recipes, too.

Each week begins with a look at the menu and the Day-By-Day Instructions to keep you on track.

You’ll also get all the recipes you need to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day, including appetizing photos…

… mini recipes, and tips to take your lunch on the go.

There are also detailed instructions and forms you can download and print so you can create your own meal plans.

But you’re probably most curious about the food, right? Take a look at this:

These are just a few of the delicious recipes included in the meal plan: Cashew Chicken, Chocolate Chili, Steakhouse Salad, Banana Pancakes with Breakfast Sausage, Breakfast Pizza, and Joe’s Special Frittata.

And please, pass this offer along to your friends and family. We want everyone to be able to reduce their stress and eat great food. (Our system only allows 1000 downloads per day, so if you run into trouble, try again the next day. Or email me a, and I’ll help you out.)

    This is SO generous – thank you, grazie, gracias y merci! Best wishes for health for you and your loved ones!

  • Kris says:

    Downloaded my copy! I’ve been a subscriber for a few years. Once I specially gifted one of your cookbooks to my son. I enjoy your emails and I just think this is really neat. Very generous, thank you!

  • Megan says:

    This is so incredibly generous of you! Thank you for alleviating one of my greatest sources of anxiety during this strange and stressful time: eating healthy on a regular basis. I have a grocery shopping trip planned for this afternoon and will put this info to work immediately.

    Also, a couple of references from this week’s newsletter positively lit up my memory banks — Weeki Watchee and South of the Border. We used to decamp from Massachusetts to Florida every February when I was a child. Sure, there was always the magnificence of Disney World, but those other attractions felt more…exotic. Busch Gardens, anyone? So thank you for that, as well!

    • Enjoy these recipes! Hope it made shopping easier 🙂

      YES, Busch Gardens! We used to go there every year, too. The pretty girls in the big dresses! I LOVED them when I was eight. They were the height of perfection.

  • Dorothy says:

    Thank you for this, it is great! I own all of your books, and as with them, it is not just a bunch of recipes, but clear instructions on how to eat and cook healthy. Glad I was able to add this.

  • Bev says:

    Thank you so much for this! I’ve been stuck in a rut and really sick of cooking my usual meals. The family’s going to appreciate the change!

  • heide says:

    so timely! I have a paperback copy of this packed away in our storage unit in Houston, so it’s great to have a digital copy, since we’ve taken refuge in Australia from our travels around the world.

  • Michele says:

    Thank you Mel! I have been a follower of yours for a long long time (back in the clothes make the girl blog days) and I love your recipes and emails. Thanks for this free download.

  • Michele says:

    Thank you for the free download of you book! What a nice gift!

  • Sandra Truli says:

    What a wonderful gift! I purchased the 28-Day Meal Plan in the Whole Foods checkout on a whim. (I’m a sucker for nice paper & pretty pictures.) It has become literally my favorite cookbook. My husband loves the Hungarian Goulash recipe. I love how simple and smart the meals are!

  • Matilda says:

    Thank you, love your cookbooks and blog. Not great at planning, so thinking this might help. Wishes for being well and well fed in these most interesting of times.
