Do The Thing, with Whole30's Melissa Urban - June 25, 2019 - 37:15

Michelle Tam (she/her) is the creator of the Saveur Award winning food blog Nom Nom Paleo. After leaving her job as a night shift pharmacist to found her blog, Michelle went on to author two New York Times best-selling cookbooks and produced a Webby-award winning cooking app with her husband, Henry Fong. She’s also been a friend since 2009, when Paleo meant eating like a caveman and making your own mayo was a regular occurrence. Today, we’ll talk about how she got into Paleo and her time on the night shift, the rise of Paleo desserts (and other ways Paleo has evolved since the early days), her secret weapon for flavorful cooking, how she got her stubborn 3-year-old off the mac and cheese, and what food freedom looks like for her kids now that they’re older.Continue the conversation with me @melissa_hartwig on Instagram.
