All about the E-Book.. feedback needed please!
So, I need your input. You can either comment here or on my Facebook page..
As most of you know, I was going to be releasing an E-Book, but my recovery from foot surgery has been difficult and emotional and I almost took down my blog/facebook for good.
I am feeling much better emotionally and beginning to feel like I can actually stand long enough to do some cooking, so I figured I'd finish testing the recipes for the book...
...but when I look back at the recipes, I am not inspired. I think part of it is that the season has changed, and I want to focus on hearty soups. stews and one pot meals... I always do this time of year, but the other issue is that I am looking at a lot of the recipes, and pictures of the food and it just reminds me of being in pain and feeling out of control with my foot issue. I have been struggling so much the last almost YEAR really with health issues. Before my foot surgery, I was very ill with C - Diff for months and ended up having a surgery in March... and even though the food and recipes I have created since January are awesome, I look back on them and remember how I was too sick to even eat the awesome Mole, or how I was in so much pain standing while cooking.. and I just feel like I can't use those recipes.
So.. I am thinking of starting fresh. A whole foods, vegan (or with vegan options) book with 50 recipes that are mostly one pot meals based on legumes, veggies and whole grains. It would be very similar to what I've been doing, but with a focus on making things a little easier and simplifying ingredients a bit.
HERE is the link to my Pinterest page with the recipes that were going in the old E-book.. there are definitely SOME in there that I will put in the new book like my Lebanese Eggplant Moussaka with Millet - Lentil Tabouli:
and Moroccan Cabbage Rolls with Lentils and Mint, and Roasted Red Pepper Harissa Sauce
... frankly, I can't do something if I don't feel passionate and excited about it and I really DO want to put my e-book out... but I want it to be MY BABY... and something I feel so happy about..
... so, If YOU are planning on buying my E-book and have your heart set on a recipe I was going to include, could you please let me know which one, so I can include it?

... thanks for bearing with me and the support...
