Michelle Tam of NomNomPaleo is this week's podcast guest! Her second cookbook, Ready or Not!, goes on sale starting today and I got to take a preview peek at it. It's great! In this interview, we talk about how Michelle started out as a pharmacist; how she became a paleo blogger; a little about what is paleo diet; what is resistant starch; and checking yourself before you wreck yourself (your blood sugar, silly!) and one of my new favorite quotes: Work with what works with you!

We’re back! Yeah, I know it’s been over two months since our last podcast, but we think you’ll really dig this hour-long episode packed with juicy details about my favorite Hawaiian-inspired summer dish, our exciting new Ready or Not! cookbook, volunteering with the family at the food bank, and my favorite green powder: Matcha! Download the episode and take us along with you on your next road trip, mountain hike, or traffic-packed slog to work!

At long last, our whole family is back with Season 2 of our podcast! Did you miss us? It’s been over a year(!) since we last released an episode of our podcast—and one of our voices now is unrecognizable! But we’ll try to make it up to you with this catch-up episode that’s crammed wall-to-wall with all our totally reasonable excuses for being radio silent. In this episode, we go over the trials and tribulations of developing a new recipe, Wonton Meatballs. Who knew that a seemingly innocuous ingredient would cause me so much agita? Also, we talk about everything that went down between episodes of our podcast—namely, our brand-spankin’ new cookbook, a wall calendar, a complete blog revamp, and moving to another state. Last but not least, I share two crushes of the week! For complete show notes, links, and recommendations, go to our podcast archive and read all about Episode 18.
