So if you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, I’m sure you will have guessed by now that I’ve been working on a little plant-based lifestyle guidebook for most of this year. Finally, after months and months and months of writing, recipe testing, shooting, editing, design and layout, more editing and editing yet again, the files are currently at the printers and the guidebook will be ready in tangible, page-turning format at the end of this month!
I’m so excited to let this little baby project out into the world! It really all began when my brothers started asking me for my vegan recipes and any tips and advice I had on cooking plant-based food. I set about writing an email that included a list for South African plant-based pantry items, as well as nutritional tips and recipes on making super easy (and trust me, if it’s easy enough for my brothers, it’s easy enough for you!) vegan food. As that email became longer and longer, friends and family members began encouraging me to put my recipes and tips into a book. When my friend, photographer and designer Kate van Onselen, got wind of my plan, she was on board faster than a labrador on a peanut butter woof treat! It is actually thanks to Kate that the guidebook was finished this year – I’m a bit of a procrastinator by nature, but with her encouragement, advice and deadlines for photo shoots and layouts, the book was done by the end of September.
So if you’re keen to get a copy (or three) sign up for the newsletter by clicking here and receive a discount code for your first purchase. This code will be available until the 15th of November, so be sure to make use of it before then! You can also pre-order your copy now to ensure that you get your grubby paws on the guide as soon as it ready for delivery at the end of October. The guidebook is the size of a standard magazine and contains 120 pages of good vegan vibes! It will look beautiful on your coffee table or book shelf, but I’m reaaaaally hoping it’s going to be a permanent feature on your kitchen cookbook stand and that you use it often. I’m super excited to help everyone eat more compassionately and live in line with their values! I cannot wait to show you guys more of the book – I’m counting down the hours until I hold the shiny finished product in my hands.
Thanks to everyone near and far for all the words of encouragement throughout the production of this little project. I hope you all get yourself a copy because I spent my entire life savings on it and am now broke AF. A-hem. YOLO?
