Is there any money to be made from e-publishing, or is this just practice/ a labor of love?

I've got some Amazon affiliate links on there, but mostly it is promotion for future endeavors. Some people make a go at selling their ebooks, but I'm going to offer all of mine for free.

I just read the intro. Is that true? If so, major congratulations!


Wow. That looks awesome. I'm stoked to try some of this.

Yes, it is indeed true. That was a whole different person, a whole different life. I've been trying to find some decent before and after pics.

Thanks, UA! I hope you find the ebook helpful.

Looks good - the pictures add a lot to the overall appeal (and I mean pictures of the prepared food, just in case you might have the wrong idea). I might try it - except I already know I have trouble bringing myself to eat gazpacho. Would it be ok to repeat something from earlier in the week for that?

One other question - do you know of anyone who's done endurance training while on this diet? I'm wondering what adjustments might be appropriate.

Beautifully done, very inspiring (I too was a bit surprised by the back story, but then shouldn't have been - we all go through changes, don't we?), and I am sure it will be very helpful to many of us.

I think we all reach a point in our lives where we need to make some breaks from bad habits and heal ourselves. It's not always successful, of course, but inspiration like this is key to getting the ball rolling, and for providing much needed advice and reference.

Thank you for doing this, and for sharing it so generously.

You certainly can use recipes from wherever in the ebook that you like. This is meant to be a guide only. People can use it however they please.

I don't know of anyone personally, but I have read of people hiking the Great Divide completely raw. There is no way I could have eaten raw while on our bike trip. For one, it was just not possible. I would have had to make my life so much more complicated in order to get the foods I needed. But more power to the folks who can pull it off.

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, we all certainly do go through changes. Keeping in shape and staying healthy is one of my highest priorities in lifelong goals. Sometimes its hard to believe how drastically one's life can change. I'm trying to break some bad habits right now, that probably don't seem to bad to some folks, but still, I always want to be striving to be a better person.

Looks good. Some of the recipes look incredible. Might have to wait a bit more until spring. Might be a bit expensive to get some of that lot during winter here :-)

Heather, this is indeed a very good book and very generous of you to share it with us like this. Those recipes are very appetizing and your opening to the book is very inspiring. Thank you so much. I'm probably going to print it out later for future reference.

Thanks Casper! I was a bit lucky on my shopping trip today. I purchased some cheap food at the Asian market and then I had a lot of the more expensive items already at home. Thanks for the feedback.

Awe, thanks for your sweet words, Siu! I hope you enjoy the recipes. I'm sure the ebook is better now that I fixed all those typos I missed last night.

Wow -- I had no idea, Shadiyah. That is so awesome. Congratulations a thousand times over! A lot of this stuff is next to impossible for me to find, and I'm wary of pesticides on a lot of produce here ("organic" can often just be a word they slap on the label), but I'd love to try some of these... and a few look like things my sister would absolutely love. Thanks for sharing this!

Yeah, pesticides can be scary. I hope there's something in there that you can make, and definitely pass it on to your sis!

Right on! The more the word on living better is spread around, the better it gets.

20 years ago I remember not being able to find what little healthy food was commercially available without a lot of legwork. Today I am finding there is more variety, more choices, with better taste and it's readily available in more places.

I dunno if everyone is finding this all over the world but every little battle won is a step towards winning the war. I find it really encouraging over the long haul. Same with bike lanes and other provisions for cyclists that were unheard of ten or twenty years ago.

Change can come slowly but with patience and effort it will come.

Thanks again Shadiyah. This is good stuff and important stuff, too.
