Feeling Positive. Support. Plan. Publisher - Shield Crest UK. Friendships.

September 5, 2016

Feeling very positive this Monday! After talking to my friend Jourdan Kenny yesterday I am full of new ideas and now have more of a clear plan to move forward.

She has settled lots of my doubts and thinks like my publisher that the message I am spreading is a good message and she would like to help. With her skills in business and marketing I would be most grateful to her for any advice and help she has to offer. 

 

Though its really boosted me having people be so positive about this lifestyle and willing to invest in me and support me. 

I think this is the start of a new chapter.

 

This is where the real work will begin and after yesterday I am really ready to take it on. I am very hard on myself and do doubt and get embarrassed about showing my books to people etc and having people come to me and say they are good really builds my confidence and does so much for me.

I haven't seen Jourdan is so long as our lives have been so busy but I strongly believe we have come back into eachother's lives again for a reason and that we can really spread the word and educate more and more people whilst creating more recipes and books. 

 

Thank you Jourdan, she really gave me some personal confidence too which I am grateful for and it has helped me believe in myself more. 

 

So on the whole an extremely positive weekend - and hopefully a good week ahead.

 

I am looking forward to Croatia now - at first I was a little nervous. But with my Mum's idea of translating what I can eat and what they need to avoid and not put in my dishes, it may say embarrassment and dishes coming out incorrect. And I have been given the challenge of finding some restaurants ( which I enjoy doing) that will be suitable and can cater for me. 

I am just going to soak up all the experiences I can - Jourdan also showed me her 'happy journal' ( I AM GOING TO ORDER ONE TODAY AS I NEED ONE) it was brilliant, it was set out for each day with objectives for the day so you could write 2 or 3 things, then you could make comments on the day, what problems you faced and how you coped etc. Such a good idea, so investing in one of those and taking it to Croatia to help me keep focus but also to remind me to listen to myself. Because I get so wrapped up in things I am involved in - am I doing enough? I need to do this? Are they happy? I only did 3 hours today of editing not 5. I get lost in those questions and neglect myself - and I need to remember to take 'me' time and totally switch off and be proud of what I am doing. 

 

 

So feeling fresh and ready to go.

 

Everything is sorted and set in place with my publisher which I can now reveal is Shield Crest UK - they are the number one online publisher, so I am super excited as I really hoped they would take my book on.  Eeeek.

If nothing is edited to much then the book will take 4-6 weeks to be published and distributed from now. However if I wish to make some bigger changes this adds on 2-3 weeks.

 

So I can't give you an exact time-scale at the moment. I am going to take my time and make sure it is right! Cant wait for you all to see it though and enjoying American - plant-based, allergy-free recipes.

 

Exciting times ahead. 

 

:)

Love and Peace xo.

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
