How’s your week going so far? Mine has been busy, but good. My cookbook designer and I have been working hard to get the interior of the book completely finished (have I ever told you guys that I’m a perfectionist with OCD?), and the covers are currently in production. I can’t wait to see the whole thing all put together!
Preorder pricing on my cookbook will only be available through the end of October, so grab your copy now!
The weather is just lovely here in upstate South Carolina. We’re 5 hours from the coast so we didn’t feel the affect of Hurricane Matthew very strongly (although we did get some much-needed rain). The temperatures have cooled off so nicely, and we’ve been enjoying soup frequently. There’s nothing my mom loves more than having soup leftovers for lunches throughout the week!
If you’re new here, these “What’s on My Plate?” posts are meant to give you inspiration and show you just how easy healthy eating can be! They are not professionally-styled photo shoots, nor do they necessarily catalogue everything I ate in a week’s time. These posts aren’t meant to be guides for serving size or anything like that. I don’t always have everything on my plate at the beginning of the meal when I get my camera out (and I don’t always get my camera out, period). Please just use these posts as inspiration for what to eat, not how much to eat.
