Hi guys! A few news tidbits to share today.
1) I gave this little plant-powered kitchen a reno! What do you think? I may tweak a couple of things, but overall it feels simpler and cleaner to me, hopefully you enjoy the new format and look as well.
With the new look, I’ve updated the page for my videos, with a link to my YouTube channel. Once the busy-ness of the PPF book release has passed, I promise I’ll be sharing more vids. Also, I have a permanent tab for the new plant-powered tees and other items. I’ve had quite a few requests for some men shirts. I will definitely be adding them. When we sought out designs, this style really clicked with me. Felt fresh and fun, energetic and positive. Yet, it felt best suited to women and kids, so I didn’t create tees for men. But, they will be coming, as well as other options for boys! Please keep bringing your feedback, it’s so helpful.
2) My first book signing for Plant-Powered Families will be at:
4288 Main Street (between 27th & 28th), Vancouver
10 am, May 16th
Our family loves MeeT! It’s a super fun spot, with a charming, relaxed atmosphere for singles and families alike. The food is a perfect mix of healthy-meets-indulgent! I also happen to love their Lemon Lavender Fizz cocktail… though I doubt I’ll be enjoying that at 10am. (then again, it IS really good.) 🙂
The restaurant opens at 11, so we’ll have time to chat and mingle before the doors open for lunch. I’ll have some samples from the book, plus a few door prizes including free cookbooks and a FAB gift basked from my friends at Hippie Foods (they are including all those goodies on their homepage)! If you think you’ll be at the signing, please leave a comment here! I’d love to meet some of my local plant-powered friends!
3) Finally, though Plant-Powered Families doesn’t officially release until May 12th, many of you have already received your preorders. Exciting! Thank you for sending along your cheer and positive feedback by email and on social media. It means the world to me to know you are enjoying this book so much, already. Truly, it does. It was my goal with this book to bring a collection of recipes that would be simple and relatively quick for families to make – but still deliver all the flavor. I included a selection of ‘oldies but goodies’ from my earlier books, made-over with healthier and allergenic modifications, and of course, many new recipes. For me, the heart of the book is beyond the recipes. It’s all the tips and insights I share from my years of vegan parenting. It was a dream for me to create a book to benefit other plant-powered families, and I’m so pleased to see it come to fruition. If you are enjoying the book, it would help immensely if you can share a positive review on amazon. Those reviews really help boost visibility of the book and share what YOU enjoy about the content. Thank you. <3
Now, help me out… what samples from the new book should I make for the signing?
