About the author

Jan Wassenberg is partly fueled by chocolate. 14 years ago at the age of 18, he realized that moving to university would require another food source. His mother wrote a starter cookbook, leading to many sociable gatherings in the student dorm kitchen. A tasty demo convinced the group to invest in an ice cream maker. Happy years of plentiful frozen desserts, baking, Frisbee, and dancing ensued. After moving out, finishing an algorithm engineering PhD and one too many visits to the dentist, he shifted focus to healthier desserts. A keen interest in nutrition, stoked by hundreds of research articles, led to major changes. Motivated by a desire for continual improvement, Jan tested and tweaked each recipe at weekly cooking get-togethers. He is eager to share the delightful results and hopes this book adequately communicates the why and how.

Jan is joined in his passion for cooking by his wife Jaya. With a combined 30 years of kitchen experience, they bring together the best of East and West.

Book 1
A New York Times cookbook best-seller.

Nom Nom Paleo is a visual feast, crackling with humor and packed with stunningly photographed step-by-step recipes free of gluten, soy, and added sugar. Designed to inspire the whole family to chow down on healthy, home-cooked meals, this cookbook compiles over 100 foolproof paleo recipes that demonstrate how fun and flavorful cooking with wholesome ingredients can be. And did we mention the cartoons?

Nom Nom Paleo kicks off with a fresh introduction to Paleo eating, taking readers on a guided tour of author Michelle Tam's real-food strategies for stocking the kitchen, saving time, and maximizing flavors while maintaining a Paleo lifestyle. Also, sprinkled throughout the book are enlightening features on feeding kids, packing nutritious lunches, boosting umami, and much more.

But the heart of this book are Michelle's award-winning primal Paleo recipes, 50 percent of which are brand-new --- even to diehard fans who own her bestselling iPad cookbook app. Readers can start by marrying their favorite ingredients with building blocks like Sriracha Mayonnaise, Louisiana Remoulade, and the infamous Magic Mushroom Powder. These basic recipes lay the foundation for many of the fabulous delights in the rest of the book including Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks, Crab Louie, and Devils on Horseback.

There's something for everyone in this cookbook, from small bites like Apple Chips and Kabalagala (Ugandan plantain fritters) to family-sized platters of Coconut Pineapple "Rice" and Siu Yoke (crispy roast pork belly). Crave exotic spices? You won't be able to resist the fragrant aromas of Fast Pho or Mulligatawny Soup. In the mood for down-home comforts? Make some Yankee Pot Roast or Chicken Nuggets drizzled with Lemon Honey Sauce. When a quick weeknight meal is in order, Nom Nom Paleo can show you how to make Crispy Smashed Chicken or Whole-Roasted Branzini in less than 30 minutes. And for a cold treat on a hot day, nothing beats Paleo-diet-friendly Mocha Popsicles or a two-minute Strawberry Banana Ice Cream.

Eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing flavor. This book gives you "Paleo with personality," and will make you excited to play in the kitchen again.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Lose up to 16 Pounds in 14 Days with Zero Belly Smoothies!
 
Watch the pounds disappear—with the press of a button! That’s all it takes to blend up a Zero Belly Smoothie, a unique mix of supernutrients that will flatten your gut, boost your metabolism, heal your digestive system, and turn off your fat genes for good.
 
With fat-burning proteins and a specially selected array of high-powered fruits and vegetables, Zero Belly Smoothies—based on the New York Times bestseller Zero Belly Diet—are the fastest and most delicious ways ever created to sip off the pounds!
 
Inside you’ll find a complete shopping guide, a bonus cleanse program, and more than 100 intensely flavorful recipes, including tasty green drinks, fresh and fruity smoothies, nutty, chocolatey shakes, and savory surprises.
 
Zero Belly Smoothies will help you
• Lose up to 16 pounds in 14 days.
• Melt away stubborn fat, from your belly first.
• Put an end to bloating and discomfort.
• Detox from unhealthy foods so you enjoy all-day energy.
• Turn off your fat storage genes and make long-term weight loss effortless.
• Look and feel younger and healthier than ever!
 
You’ll be stunned and inspired by the results of an amazing 500-person test panel—men and women who lost weight quickly, and with ease, following the original Zero Belly diet, which included many of these Zero Belly Smoothies. In just the first 14 days
Bob McMicken, 51, lost 16.3 pounds.
Kyle Cambridge, 28, lost 15 pounds.
Martha Chesler, 54, lost 11 pounds.
Matt Brunner, 43, lost 14 pounds.
 
Focusing your weight-loss efforts on drinks will help you quickly strip away flab in a number of ways. Here’s what makes Zero Belly Smoothies so effective:
 
1. They take the stress out of cooking and eating well.
Studies have shown that the more diverse your diet, the more likely you are to experience weight gain. In fact, those who ate the widest range of foods showed a 120 percent greater increase in waist circumference compared with those who had the least diversity. In other words, people who have the best success at weight loss pick a set number of foods and tend to stick to them. Zero Belly Smoothies allow you to do exactly that.
 
2. They crowd out the junk in your diet.
Zero Belly Smoothies come in all different flavors—chocolatey, fruity, green, and even savory—but they all have one thing in common: no added sugars. In a 2015 study in Sweden, researchers followed 42,400 men over the course of 12 years. They found that men who consumed at least two servings per day of sweetened beverages had a 23 percent higher risk of heart failure compared with those who did not.
 
3. They battle food allergies and reduce inflammation.
What’s also unique about Zero Belly Smoothies is that they are vegan: no milk, no yogurt, no whey protein. Plant-based protein powders are a low-sugar, high-fiber alternative to popular dairy-based supplements. A study by the University of Tampa that compared plant protein with whey found it to be equally as effective at changing body composition and boosting muscle recovery and growth!
 
4. They make you feel fuller longer!
Studies show that high-protein smoothies are highly effective at rushing nutrients to your muscles and that blended fruit drinks, which include all the fiber, will actually keep you fuller longer than fruit juices.
