New Vegan Cookbook: Eat Awesomeby
Several times a day you can look at a blog, Twitter stream, Facebook post or Pinterest and find photos of food — but it’s not often that these posts turn into a full 70+ page e-book. For Paul Jarvis however, it was a natural progression. The Tofino-based web designer, musician, and vegan has just launched Eat Awesome A regular person’s guide to eating plant-based whole foods.
Paul Jarvis, whom I first met when I interviewed his band Mojave back in 2008, posts simple and colourful images of his food – with ingredients like almond milk, quinoa, cashew cream, and hemp seeds – to his Instagram account.
“Dozens of friends, family members, and social media buddies have been asking me how to cook like I cook, eat like I eat,” says Paul who ended up typing up recipes by email to all those who inquired. “It occurred to me that I ought to save myself (and my friends) some serious time, and just write a book.”
Eat Awesome is available for download right now for just $5 and is splashed with taste-bud tingling photos courtesy of Marnie Recker. Chapters include dressings and sauces, meals, desserts and drinks. Once you’ve read the book Paul even offers up some Twitter updates that you can copy and paste to help spread the word.
The e-book asks, “If you are what you eat, why not eat awesome?” and Paul hopes that you’ll do just that. “I don’t know everything. But food is my life, and my life is pretty awesome.” If you would like to check out the book, you can leave a comment on this post to enter to win 1 of 5 copies.
