Holiday Treats eBook + Smoked Salmon Omelet

Sorry it’s been a few weeks since I last posted…I’ve been busy working on my new eBook! It’s called Holiday Treats and it was really fun to write.

Use the discount code treatyourself during the checkout process and you can buy any or all of the eBooks for just 99 cents each.

Since the last two weeks in my kitchen have been all about making and sampling sweet treats, I have been taking care to make sure I am otherwise eating a balanced, calorie-appropriate, nutritious diet (I talk more about my “dessert philosophy” in the intro of Holiday Treats).

One meal I’ve enjoyed a few times recently is this Smoked Salmon Omelet, the recipe for which appears in my print book One Simple Change.

It’s quick to whip up, filling, and delicious. When I know I am going to “have to” eat some carbohydrate-rich cookies (I know…poor me…testing recipes really stinks…NOT), this is a perfect lunch. I’ve photographed the omelet atop a bed of baby arugula- the hot omelet cooked the greens just a bit, which I love!

Giving Myself a Break

I like to finish what I start: when I take on a task it’s pretty rare that I don’t complete it. This drive to finish things generally serves me well in life, yet there are times when I wish I was better at giving myself a break…I wish I could allow myself to stop doing … Read more

Dreams Do Come True

So…this is really happening!

One Simple Change | Healthy Green Kitchen

Three copies of my book arrived on my doorstep two weeks ago. Holding one in my hands for the first time was more than a little exciting, and proof positive that dreams do come true.

Years ago, I got it into my head that I wanted to write a book. My idea was to write about how small lifestyle changes can lead to big improvements in health and well being. I had a background in naturopathic medicine, but I had no writing experience (and I certainly did not have a “platform”).

I am very much rooted in reality, so I knew full well this was probably just a crazy dream. I knew the likelihood of ever being published was probably nonexistent. But I am determined, so I set about seeing if there was any way I could make my crazy dream come true.

In 2008, I started a website about health and wellness. Managing it for a year nearly sucked the life out of me and the website itself…IT sucked. I decided to give blogging a try and I shifted my focus to food and recipes. I did not give up on my dream to write a book but I decided it was a cookbook I wanted to write instead.

By the beginning of 2012, I was starting to think it was time to give up on the book writing dream. It’s just not going to happen, I told myself. Some things simply are not meant to be. Right around the same time, I decided to start a series here on the blog called One Simple Change. I figured it was a way for me to put those lifestyle change ideas I’d come up with years earlier to use.

I loved writing One Simple Change. The response from my readers was really positive, and about two months after my first post, I found myself in talks with an editor to write a book based on the series. The rest, as they say, is history. Now my dream has come true, and my book will be out in a couple of months.
