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!

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

Fit n Fifty

Megan – so happy to hear you are embarking on this adventure. I would really like to see recipes that are quick and easy to prepare. (My definition of easy is not HAVING to use a lot of kitchen appliances – I just don’t own them)and ingredients that are easily accessible and common kitchen staples. (especially during a midwest winter)and low sodium. Best of luck to you!

Michelle

This is awesome news! You really do have some of the best recipes out there and I am constantly letting my friends and family know about your blog. Make sure to include your almond cookies, they are my personal favorites to make.

Yes Life Love

Congrats! I’ve been reading your blog for years and have made lots and lots of your recipes. Sort of related question: After your baby was born, did you decide to just do health coaching/blogging/writing/cook book writing, etc, and leave your full time job? Just curious (I’m pregnant with my first and due in May, and just trying to figure it all out!)

    Megan

    Thanks! I actually still work full-time, so it’s kinda crazy around here! I just love my day job too much to leave it.

      sara

      what do you do full-time?

Katrin

Served your raw chocolate swirl cheesecake at a part of dessert at x-mas. Wow!

Bronwyn

Hi Megan!
I am so happy for you, this is great news! I love your website, it’s a very precious source of information for me and it’s also very user-friendly, which I think unconsciously is the reason why I keep coming back to your blog and never lose interest. If you ask me, I would love your cookbook to reflect that. For example, I’d love a cookbook that stays on the right page when you lay it on the counter to cook or use a bookholder. I find most cookbooks nowadays look more like coffee table books. I fall for their look at the store but gradually lose interest (even though I love the content!) because I do not find them practical. Recipe-wise, I’d love a clear indication of what food category each recipe falls into and whether they could be frozen or not (your freezer-meal section is such a life-saver for me!!). And since I’m still new to food combining, I would love a cookbook that’s organized in a way that makes it easy for me to quickly prepare a three-course meal respecting food-combining principles on a week-night ๐Ÿ™‚ More grain-free recipes would be awesome, too ๐Ÿ™‚ And a section of “copy-cat meals” for each type of cuisine (Asian, Italian, Indian, Mediterranean, etc.) would be a great resource when my hubby and I are tempted to order take-out!
Thank you so much for allowing us to make suggestions ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to see the final result! Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

Nancy

Good for you!

Erica

Congratulations! I am a student of IIN. Happy to see your success!
I honestly don’t buy or use recipe books unless there are pictures. I need that visual motivation! Also, fewer ingredients and suggestions for alternatives if I don’t have something on hand.
Good luck to you!

Jillian

SO excited about this!! I’d love to see LOTS of healthy easy raw kale salads and other yummy salads and dishes that keep well for a few days :). Good luck!! Can’t wait!!

Chef Amber Shea

Congrats, Megan!!

yonderkat

I love your site and tell everyone about it all the time. It makes me feel smart and informed on conscious eating : ) It has become my go-to for every day inspiration. I love the what-i-ate-wednesday. you have a way of making me realize how easy it really is to make healthy things, just a matter of getting in habit. I agree with the suggestions to keep it well organized & more practical for planning actual meals throughout the day/week, rather than just a pretty book (although your photos are always amazing so you have to keep some in there). you might need to write more than one book! eventually… what, i cannot believe you do all this and have a day job. amazing!

Maureen

This is wonderful news. Your cauliflower pizza crust was my first introduction to your site over a year ago and I’ve been back most days ever since. I’d like to see a good share of the recipes devoted to mains (soups, salads, stews, etc.). Congratulations on a well-deserved opportunity.

Rebekah

Wonderful and exciting news! I have been wondering when this would happen. I’m looking forward to bringing more of you in to my kitchen. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations!

Rosemary Erickson

Awesome, that’s wonderful news! I love getting your postings, and routinely check your site when I’m seeking a healthy recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Cortney

Congratulations!!! So excited for you! I will definitely be a supporter!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Teresa

I’m so happy for you! Plus, I’m excited for the future birthday/Christmas gifts I’ll be able to give people! Please include your detox blonde macaroons, paleo chocolate chip cookies and chocolate coconut ice cream. Oh, we also loved the flourless peanut butter cookies with the TJ’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups in them. Can’t wait to see your book!

Lisa

Congratulations! I love your website and your yummy recipes. I’m sure your book will be amazing, I would love to see a PDF version since i have so many paper cookbooks and not really room for anymore but would still love all the recipes!

Maegen

This is wonderful news! I look forward to purchasing your cook book. Congratulations! I’ve enjoyed your recipes and recommend your website to my friends/family.

Angie

Congratulations! I would love to see more dinner recipies that are quick and easy to prepare. Your website and recipes are amazing, and I can’t wait to see what is in store.

Tasha L.

Your website is honestly one of my very favorites – you have a way of motivating me to eat right. I like all your recipes, and your style of eating. I was hoping you’d do a cookbook sometime! That is exciting.

brianna latham

i am soooo excited!

Sarah

that’s great news! i will definitely buy your cookbook! it will save me from adding to my “detoxinista recipes” printout collection ๐Ÿ™‚

Jane

Congrats! I love your website and recipes.

Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl

That is huge!!! So happy for you!

Julie H.

Megan! I’m really excited for you. I would like to see some recipes that are interchangeable with ingredients. Make suggestions or side notes that give variations. For example, swap zucchini noodles for rutabaga noodles, spaghetti squash noodles, etc. Swap real meat for “mushroom meat”. Include fun, optional toppings like your “Parmesan cheese”, “sweet potato cheese”, cauliflower Alfredo. The best of luck! And congrats!

Andrea

Yay!! So happy for you!! Megan you coached me a few years back for a few months and we met at Juicy Ladies for a juice. I’ve been meaning to contact you to let you know how much I still love your recipes ๐Ÿ™‚ It is awesome to have have such clean, easy recipes to have for my home and being that I have 3 kiddos with my youngest being 10 months I don’t have ANY time in the kitchen. I think you have a bright future in the kitchen and next up you should have your own cooking show! Congrats on your beautiful baby boy, they are little treasures ๐Ÿ™‚ All the best to you and hope we can connect again!
