I’m so proud and excited to share the very first Cookies to Kale E-book with you all! My favorite part about the E-Book, is that it’s not a diet, cleanse or detox. It is a “re-introduction” to healthy eating. We don’t eliminate any food groups, and provide lots of options that support various eating habits (i.e.. vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, omnivore). Essentially, we created a plan that is for everyone!
We wanted the name of our E-Book to reflect our theory about healthy eating. We believe in using real wholesome ingredients that best nourish the body, and encourage a healthy relationship with food. There are 7 days of meals and 3 meals a day which means 21 meticulously planned recipes that are fast, easy, and accessible for any cooking level.
Here is a sample page of what you might expect when you look at a recipe. Each page will have a similar format and include a gorgeous picture!
What’s an Ebook?
An E-Book is exactly like a regular book, just electronic! You simply purchase, download, and it is immediately on your computer, template, or phone! We love the idea of an E-Book because it is convenient and immediate!
I keep referring to “we”. That’s because I didn’t do this alone! I have been so lucky to collaborate with my good friend and partner in foodie crime, the gorgeous Jane Jourdan over at www.FitforBroadway.com!! We have had such a blast creating and eating our way through the development of our book, and are so incredibly excited to share it with everyone! (You can tell we have way too much fun together!!)

How much does it cost?
The E-Book will be $20.00 per person. As I am a holistic nutritionist, I designed each recipe to be perfectly portioned, and nutritionally complimentary. This means that you are eating balanced meals and snacks through out your week. Jane has worked tirelessly to design the visual layout of the book to be beautiful, inspiring and user-friendly. We combined out knowledge of food and healthy eating to ensure that your energy levels and overall health were changing in a positive way! We like to treat food as fuel, and wanted to create a program that would enable your body to perform at its peak! We wanted to charge a reasonable price that reflected how much work, time, and energy we’ve put in to this Ebook to make it helpful for each of you!
Why Choose this 7-day recipe guide?
Sustainability. There are so many crash diets, cleanses, and detoxes out there that leave you feeling good for a week, and then lost afterwards. Often times, these diets can actually make you GAIN weight, and can lead to poor food choices once it’s over. People can feel deprived or restricted during these sorts of programs. The Wholesome 21 is the exact opposite. We believe that after the 7 days, you will feel revitalized and inspired. You won’t want to make those un-ideal choices because you will know how amazing your body feels when you are nourishing it with real food. The 7 days will allow you to feel empowered by your discovery that healthy eating doesn’t have to be limited and that a balanced diet is the best approach!
We also provide about eating out which in our opinion, is crucial. Restaurant dining, or eating on the run can often sabotage our efforts to make positive choices. We want to help you prevent that!
Cleanses and diets are often created with weight loss in mind and can leave you with results that don’t last. If weight loss is your goal, then that’s great, but the only way you are going to achieve those goals is through dedicated and persistent eating choices. The Wholesome 21 re-introduces a method of eating instead of restricting yourself. This makes your transition to healthy eating a positive and lasting one!
We also wanted to give a sneak peek at our photoshoot for The Wholesome 21!! We had an incredible photo shoot with the talented Justin Patterson. His work is absolutely incredible and we were honored to collaborate with him on a vision for our cover. He is such a joy to work with, and I am thrilled to announce that he has offered an amazing deal to Cookies To Kale readers!!! Whether you are a performer who needs head shots, a trainer who wants fitness shots, or a fellow food blogger that would like to spruce up their blog with some unique and fun photographs, he is the guy to go to. SERIOUSLY. (check out his website to see the various sorts of photographs he takes!)
