Dear joyous reader,
As I write this blog smiling and feeling joyously tearful at the same time (more on that in a moment), all I keep thinking about is my all-time fave book “Oh The Places You’ll Go” and this quote in particular:
It was about a decade ago that Dr. Seuss’ classic made it’s way into my life. I was going through some challenging times and this superbly wonderful book gave me much needed comfort and inspiration.
So here we are! Today is the day and I’m joyously tearful, smiling ear to ear as my dream of writing a book has come true!! I have not only been looking forward to this day since I first signed my contract with Penguin Canada (my publisher) nearly two years ago, but have been anticipating this moment for a lifetime. Now my book is making it’s way to book store shelves across Canada, and when the Spring flowers pop up in a couple of months it will be making it’s joyful way to book stores across the U.S.A as well.
Thanks be to you my joyous reader! Thank you for allowing my joyous blog, recipes, ramblings and sometimes rants into your life. I truly hope that everything you learn here and within my book sets you on a path to joyous health! Many people see my book as a cookbook but it is so much more than that! In fact the entire first half is devoted to natural health and tips to help you live joyously well. Not only will you learn what your gut (digestive system) is trying to tell you, but you’ll also learn what foods/supplements/habits to embrace to feed your brain (aka put you in a joyous mood), aid your body in daily detoxification, how to stock a joyous kitchen, plus a 10-day meal plan and so much more!!
90% of the recipes are gluten-free, many of them are vegan and they are all healthy, flavourful and easy to create.
Last but not least, part of living a joyous healthy life is manifesting it. Food aside, you’ve got to manifest the crap out of what you want! So I’ve created this series of inspiring and thoughtful joyous health affirmations to set you on the path to manifesting joyous health. Click through the slide to see them all. You can also find them all on pinterest HERE and on instagram at #joyoushealthhabit
Have a joyous day!
