Arriving home yesterday to postage from Shield Crest was exciting. As I knew immediately it was the proof copy of my book.
After 5 weeks of working together over email to make the changes needed to improve my book it's so nice to see it in the flesh. Now it is just the time to go through it and highlight and make any extra changes before commissioning my book and having it sent to the publishers to be published and be released. Exciting times.
Although it is a long process hopefully it will all be worth it in the end.
I simply can't wait for it to be released and to create more amazing recipes for everyone.
I received a message this morning from my best friend saying after talking to my friend Jacob, seeing my diet and recipes she is going vegan for a month and plant-based.
After hearing the benefits and changes Jacob has gone through and has found after cutting out meat and dairy has given her motivation to try.
This has truly shocked me as she lives on a farm and her family's career is farming.
But I am so pleased she is being open-minded and is willing to try this way of eating and living to help her feel better.
When everyone comes home it is going to be so fun to have everyone over and simply indulge on plant-based foods and recipes.
I am going to have to start creating some amazing recipes for everyone to try. (I like this challenge). We will end up having our own little plant-based crew - that would be amazing. Eating out would be so much more fun and stress free.
I know that my friends are going plant-based for health reasons more than anything but I appreciate their support and listening to my blogs, seeing my pictures and getting inspiration from my own journey to help them in their lives. This was my own goal and aim and this makes me so happy.
I know Jacob has felt so MANY benefits from this way of living and eating and health wise it helps him so much with his intolerance's without him feeling he is missing out on food.
People turn their nose up at this lifestyle, but after trying and eating the foods, feeling the benefits they completely change their outlooks and understand why they used to suffer so badly with digestive issues, skin problems and much more.
I hope that Laura can stick with it for a month and see the benefits for herself, maybe persuading her to make the life change and eat this way all of the time.
Best wishes for the weekend.
I hope you all have a lovely one, spending it with friends and family doing what you enjoy most.
