I believe there comes a certain point in everyone's career (in their life, really) that they have an ah ha moment in realizing this is what I want to do. I love this! Whatever your this may be. I had one of those moments recently, and it came at the most unexpected time. It was one quiet evening at home, after long day of work when I was preparing a simple kale salad. I massaged the kale with olive oil, sprinkled sea salt on top, and then added chunks of avocado, some cucumber and sunflower seeds... I felt a sense of ease that I had the evening to myself, and no responsibility to cook for anyone else. I also knew, deep down, a perfect salad would make for a perfect evening.
Suddenly, it hit me. Salad is my thing. I love salad! I love eating salads. I love styling salads. I love preparing salads for others - showing them salad can be hearty and delicious. A night all to myself and what do I want? Salad.
Secretly declared to myself, I'm PASSIONATE about salad!
That may sound odd to some of you but the point is what you do with that passion, right? What are you supposed to do about something you LOVE so much? I think you're supposed to nurture it, create it, share it, expound upon it... and that's exactly what I'm doing with Salad Club, the ebook -- nurturing my love for salad and finding a way to share it with the world!

I've been talking about this book for awhile now; it's been on my goal list for several months, but it wasn't until this last week that I really buckled down and made some major headway in actually finishing the book. Here's a sneak peak you may have seen on Instagram.
Seeing it finally come together makes me SO excited to share it. We're so close now, I can taste it! Of course, the book still needs a few finishing touches, but the bulk of the writing and formatting is done (what a relief!), and I hope to release it sometime in December (or at the very latest, January).
Even though it's taken me awhile to finish, I can't help but think this is the perfect time of year for the release. Salad Club is a great way to combat the overload of holiday goodies around the office, and a great way to incorporate vegetables during carb-loaded family feasts.
The book comes with shopping lists and schedule templates to make explaining the concept to your officemates really easy! I also included sample shopping lists for big and small groups, which is something I'm very happy to offer. (I know a few of you struggled to get started with just 3 participants - I got you covered!) And of course, a few salad recipes and fun facts about salad!
This announcement is to ask those of you who are interested in purchasing the ebook to go ahead and sign-up to be the first alerted when it's ready. You can sign-up right here!
