I’m making you a present! Wanna know what it is?
Over the summer, you may recall me asking what food-related thing, if it appeared here on the interwebs, would make you jump for joy—a guide to planning crap-free, high-mileage meals on the reg? Pantry-stocking 101? A music fest survival cheat sheet?
Real, actual results from this summer’s ebook survey.
The responses from friends near and far, old and new, ranged anywhere from super-sweet and humbling to completely hysterical. Y’all really know how to make a lady smile. And to a certain Korean-with-a-Polish-last-name-computer-programming pal who suggested that I scrap the ebook idea entirely and pay you half a million bucks to develop an Eat Well. Party Hard. app instead…I can’t afford your amazing work yet. But someday, dude. Someday.
Beyond MAKING MY DAY, though, y’all’s responses were extremely helpful in determining which project to take on first; after all, Eat Well. Party Hard. may be written by me, but it’s not for me—it’s for you.
I plan to transform every one of the concepts from the survey into some form of useful guide or action plan as the months and years progress; however, to put my sparkliest, shiniest, grittiest, most sincere, most streamlined, most bullshit-free, most hardcore effort into each of them, I know I’ve gotta take ‘em on one at a time. Which is why I’m so, so, SOOO excited to share this news with you: the first Eat Well. Party Hard. ebook? It is on, guys. It is on like Donkey Kong.
Coming your way soon is a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ I like to call Party in the Kitchen: Equipping yourself with clean-eating staples for high-mileage meals on the reg & on the go.
Because this stupidly-wordy creation (the aforementioned name is only a working title) really boils down to taking control of your own body and what you put into it, I’m referring to it as Take the Power Back in my head; however, jury’s still out on whether using that name is a) copyright infringement, or b) only hilarious to me and really dumb to everyone else.
This book is most certainly gonna be for you if:
- You’re too consumed by the chaos of your lifestyle to invest time or energy into planning, shopping for and cooking nutrient-packed meals
- On the rare occasion that you do find time to plan + prepare some good food, you feel like you’re throwing spaghetti at the wall in hopes that a few strands stick—with no solid preparation system or knowledge of how to balance nutrients, you’re just making it up as you go
- You struggle to stick to your clean-eating goals when friends want to meet for burgers and beer, or when the only thing keeping you on your feet between work and an evening event is a $1 slice of pizza
There will be cheat sheets and customizable meal-planning templates.
There will be a “best resources to maintain sanity” guide.
There will be swear words and excitement and a celebration of the power you have (You! Right now!) to change your own life.
So THAT, y’all is most certainly happening.
