Michelle Tam is the sardonic foodie and working mom behind Nom Nom Paleo
, an award-winning food blog that receives over 1.5 million hits per month. Her daily posts are devoted to Paleo food porn, kitchen shortcuts, and recipes galore.
In 2012, Nom Nom Paleo won Saveur Magazine’s Best Food Blog Award in the Special Diets category, and Apartment Therapy & The Kitchn’s Homies Award for Best Food Photography on a Blog. Michelle also recently released the Nom Nom Paleo interactive cookbook app for the iPad®, which continues to be one of the App Store’s best-selling and top-grossing Food & Drink apps. Her cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans will be published by Andrews McMeel in December 2013.
Michelle has a degree in Nutrition & Food Science from Berkeley, and a Doctorate in Pharmacy from the University of California at San Francisco. When she’s not blogging, Michelle chases her two small boys around Palo Alto, holds down a full-time night shift hospital job, cooks like a fiend, and lifts heavy(ish) stuff at her CrossFit box.
