Wow, I’m so glad to hear that you guys are as excited about the cookbook as I am! Thanks so much for your suggestions and support. I don’t have the official release date to share yet, but I will be sure to let you know as soon as I do.
In the meantime, I’ve been working on recipes like a madwoman! I’m getting ready to work with a test group that will be sampling a possible meal plan to be featured in the book, so things are extra-busy while I finish developing recipes for that particular section. Considering that I’m preparing most of these meals with a baby attached to my chest (thank goodness for the Ergo!), I’m hoping this situation will translate to recipes that are easy for everyone else to prepare, too!
Taste-testing recipes has thrown my days and meals for a loop, but the following is an example of what they’ve been looking like lately.
It seems that everyone around me is getting sick, so I’ve been making sure to drink plenty of green juice each morning to boost my vitamin intake. My favorite combo is a mix of romaine, kale, celery, carrots, lemon and ginger. When I feel hungry later in the day, I have individual servings of chia pudding ready to go in the fridge!
I like to make a big batch of one or two dressings over the weekend, to make my daily salads quick and easy to prepare. This week, I made my green goddess dressing, which I could eat straight with a spoon– but instead, I ate it over mixed greens with steamed beets. After my salad, I treated myself to a slice of raw cheesecake.
When my workday is over, I get busy recipe testing. By the time I’ve sampled various dishes, I’m not necessarily in the mood for a traditional dinner, but I try to make sure I eat some salad along with whatever else I’m sampling– which ensures my dinner doesn’t end up being an assortment of grain-free desserts!
On this particular night, I had made seven trial batches of dressing to get it “just right,” so eating salad was definitely called for! I followed that with a slice of leftover frittata– which I ate standing, as if it were a slice of pizza. Sitting down for dinner seems to be a thing of the past, at least until our little guy can sit up on his own and join us at the dinner table.
For those of you who can sit down to enjoy a meal this week, I hope you appreciate it!
