Melissa Joulwan: Well-Fed, That Pesky Thyroid, and Colossal Kitchen Fails

melissa joulwan

Melissa Joulwan, the author of Well-Fed, blogs at The Clothes Make The Girl about her triumphs and failures in the kitchen, the gym, and in life. In her own words she’s “on a mission to be a superfit, well-fed, dressed-to-kill, glossy-haired, rock-n-roll, tart-tongued detective.”

That’s pretty sweet.

Melissa lives in Austin, TX (holla) and is a former Roller Girl with Austin’s famous Texas Rollergirls, the original flat track roller derby that spread worldwide. She has appeared on the Today Show and Good Morning America and her blog won the 2012 Homie Award for “Best Healthy Cooking Blog.” She’ll be speaking at PaleoFx in March.

In today’s show we cover:

  • Why Melissa has a no treats policy in her books
  • What it’s like to do a Whole30
  • Why soy oil is not, in fact, healthy
  • What not to eat if you have thyroid issues
  • Colossal fails in the kitchen
  • And tons more…

Here’s the show.

  1. I heard you say on this pod cast that you roasted your own coffee beans. Do you have any information on this subject. I love coffee and I love to cook and everyone I know makes fun for making almost everything I ingest from scratch. I eat a pretty strict paleoish diet(everyone has their own version). This is the only I say to contact you from your web site.
