Today is a very exciting episode, because I’m joined by the amazing and fabulous and wonderful Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo. She’s coming on the show today not only to introduce us to the brand new book that she and Henry are just releasing; it came out 6 days ago as this episode airs on August 1st. I wanted to go through all the A months; and there’s only one other A month. But I was going to say April! {laughs} It came out on August 1st, 2017. You guys, I have my hands on a copy, it’s absolutely wonderful. Michelle, thank you so much for coming on the show. And welcome to the Fed and Fit listeners!<br> <br> Michelle Tam: Oh, thank you! It’s my pleasure to be here. I’m so excited.<br> <br> Cassy Joy: Oh, me too! This is going to be fun. You can do a better job than anybody explaining the book. Could you please tell us a little bit about Ready or Not cookbook? What went into this idea. This is, I believe, book number two. The first one, Nom Nom Paleo, is a must have if you listeners don’t already have a copy of it. And after having flipped through Ready or Not, so much love and energy and attention and thought went into every single one of those pages. So it’s sure to be another great addition to your collection.<br> <br> Michelle, I’d love it if you could tell us a little bit in your own words about Ready or Not cookbook?<br> <br> Michelle Tam: So, Ready or Not cookbook is definitely a family affair. So, Henry, my husband, and I have been working on this I think 3 years. And if you see the book, it totally is 100%. So, Henry does all of the design, all the photos, all the cartoons, all the layout. And I do all the recipes and the snark. So the voice is me. And you see our kids kind of sprinkled throughout the book. <br> <br> But how this cookbook is different from our last cookbook, and I think from a lot of traditional cookbooks.
