Exciting News To Share

When I began blogging a few years ago, I never dreamed that my little recipe blog would develop into the interactive and supportive community it has become today.

This website was originally intended to be my own personal recipe resource (a way to avoid storing hard-copies of my favorite recipes when we moved into a teeny-tiny Los Angeles apartment), but it also became an easy way to share healthy recipe ideas with my long-distance friends and family. Over the years, the number of friends and family has grown, and now includes all of you reading here today!

Which is why I’m so excited to share my news with you all, my virtual family.

I’m writing a cookbook!

I spoke with several publishers last year, and finally found the perfect home for my cookbook at Ten Speed Press, a division of Random House. It will feature loads of all-natural recipes that are family-friendly and easy to incorporate into an overall healthy lifestyle.

You may have noticed that I’ve posted a few pictures of recipes over the past few months, which I haven’t been able to share with you quite yet. It’s terribly difficult to keep them to myself, but I’m saving half of the recipes I develop for my book, and the other half for the blog.

Needless to say, things have been pretty busy over here!

SONY DSCWhile I finish writing the manuscript, I’d love to hear from YOU in the meantime. What recipes would you like to see in a healthy cookbook? Any other suggestions you’d like to share?

I look forward to sharing more of this journey with you as it progresses!

    Congratulations! I look forward to its release.

  • Mary B.

    YAY!!!!!!
    I’m so excited and will buy the book, for sure!
    Every recipe of yours have been awesome.
    I eat a plant-based diet only (vegan) so would love
    those kind of recipes or at least ones that can sub with vegan ingredients.
    Best of luck to you and thanks so much for your wonderful website. :)

    So exciting. I also eat a plant-based vegan diet. I find that most vegan cookbooks unfortunately do not include natural sugar substitutes in their desert recipes. I would like to discover creative, healthy ways to add that sweet factor. (I am a fan of using maple syrup, brown rice syrup, coconut nectar, and liquid stevia, like you). I think you have done amazing things with sweet potatoes alone! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Really, I love EVERYTHING you do, I wanted to say that! :) I am actually fonder of the sweet treats. Too bad some ingredients are hard to find here in Germany (I’m a Brazilian living near Hamburg & new in the raw food thing). Whatever the cookcbook is, you got a customer already :)

  • Raquel

    Congratulations!!! I have not tried anything yet that I dislike, but what I like the most is that your recipes don’t call for many ingredients like everyone else and yet they’re beyond delicious and healthy. I would love to see them all in your book, but I think the raw cheesecake it’s a bomb!!! I have made it several times and it really doesn’t last long in my house and the cookies, don’t even go there :) I wish you the best on your new project!!

  • Rose Whitt

    So exciting! Cannot wait!! I have printed out almost your entire blog of recipes and they are sitting on my kitchen counter in sections LOL.

  • Erica

    Yay congratulations I’m so happy for you and can’t wait for the cookbook!!!

  • Miss Jem

    Congratulations Megan! That is exciting news!

    I would really appreciate recipes that are protein-and nourishing/healing to the body but also flavorful and easy. I have a hard time figuring out quick and easy meals without getting overwhelmed. And because I am seeking to heal my body quick, stress-free, and nutritious meals are very important.

    Also, the format you use with your recipes on the blog is concise (i.e. not overwhelming)and clear so I would really like to see something similar in your cookbook.
    Thanks :) Miss Jem

  • Carla

    Can’t wait!!! Your recipes are all amazing. Congratulations!
