Well, this was a lot harder than I thought it would be. But its finally done!
If any of you folks are interested, here is where you can download it 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.
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.
The search for inner peace continues...
some of that stuff looks pretty dang good!
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.
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.
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 :-)
great book! I'm very excited to put it to use.
i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
Of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories that are the most precious.
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 Arti! Let me know how it works out for you.Originally Posted by artifice
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.Originally Posted by Siu Blue Wind
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!
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.
Edited because I sounded like a d!ck
