OK, it's actually happening.... and I am CRAPPING my pants. I am both excited and hella nervous. My inner voices (don't pretend like you don't have them too) are screaming WHOOOP WHOOP and WHAT THE FUCK DUDES all at the same time. What am I talking about? I just hit PUBLISH AUTHORS COPY on my NEW COOKBOOK. That means that in just a couple days I will have a real life version of the cookbook I have wanted to make for DECADES IN MY HANDS!
I'm not joking when I say for DECADES I have been saying that ONE DAY I will publish a cookbook. I have always wanted to make a simple and fun book with recipes that reflect real life, that ANYONE could make, that would help people, especially women, find a path to better health and selfcare. The idea for this book came to me just 3 weeks ago, and it has bombarded my every waking thought since. When I wasn't working on it, I was thinking about it, when I wasn't thinking about it, I was dreaming about being in a bookstore signing copies, or doing cooking demos on live TV specials . It would not leave me alone. I would be at my computer every second I had rearranging the layout, writing recipes, creating. I spent time in the kitchen reviewing the recipes, perfecting them, seeing which ones needed a pinch more salt..... It has been all consuming. YET, I was afraid to really talk about it. The back of my mind was filled with "What if it doesn't take off?" "What if no one signed up for the course?' What if, What if, What if??" I hate to admit it, but for a while there the scared ego mind was driving the bus, and almost prevented me from posting that I needed some editors.
But, you know what? SCREW that NOISE! I really have had enough playing small, hiding away my knowledge, not sharing my story. I know that I faced years of hormonal problems, issues with my cycle, and countless failed interventions for a reason. I had to walk that path so I would learn from it. The last 3 years have been a whirlwind of education. I have learned that there are FOUR parts to our cycles (not just bleeding and no bleeding). I have learned that the interventions I was placed on to "regulate" me are more than likely the cause of the perimenopausal cluster fuck that caused 40 lbs of weight gain in less than 4 months. I have learned about the power of nutrition, seed cycling and plant medicines as frontline remedies for a lot of what ails me.
I am truly without words trying to describe how grateful I am for these lesson, these long hours writing and recording the lessons Course - The 28 - Day Strategy that led to the idea to make this cookbook. I am grateful for those people in my life, who had no idea about the book, that sent me little encouragements and reminders that I AM POWERFUL, and that I have an IMPORTANT message to share. It's a whirlwind, its crazy and it so FUCKING BEAUTIFUL.
The Cookbook will officially launch on Amazon January 22, 2024. Those signed up for The 28 - Day Strategy COURSE will receive a FREE Ebook copy January 15, 2024.
