Not Only Carrots - Plant-Based Cookbook
I'm hoping to print my plant-based cookbook with 50+ delicious, healthy, vegan recipes & 40 bonus Thermomix procedures.
Hi! I'm Leah and this is my vegan cookbook 'No, We Don't Only Eat Carrots! Plant-Based Food For Humans.'
Twelve years ago, my husband and I were inspired by the books 'The China Study' and 'The Eat To Live Diet' to switch to a plant-based diet. In the beginning we struggled and couldn't find any tasty recipes. Basically we became sick and tired of restaurants serving us over-priced bowls of gourmet fancy lettuce. It was as though 'vegan' was a code-word for 'flavourless, disgusting and blah'. A friend even commented one night, "I don't know what to feed you. I have carrots!" Thus my cookbook 'No, We Don't Only Eat Carrots! Plant-Based Food For Humans' was born (13 years in the making!)
Most people (ourselves included back in the day) have NO IDEA what to cook a vegetarian or a vegan. I wanted to show the world that cooking for veggos wasn't scary but was in fact easy and fun.
All of the recipes in my cookbook are 'normal', everyday favourites like lasagne, tacos and sausages (see photograph below). They are also healthy and 100% plant-based (vegan friendly) with zero compromise on taste. There are over 50 recipes each with a 2-page, full-colour photograph and they are all delicious and easy to prepare with Step-By-Step procedures, icons for gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free recipes, kilojoule (calorie) counts, the number of servings, preparation and cooking times, alternatives, tips and serving suggestions. 40 of the recipes also contain bonus Thermomix procedures!
So far I have received much encouragement and help from family, friends and professionals alike, but now I need your help to make the printing of my cookbook a reality. I am seeking $15,000 to cover my initial printing and warehousing costs (including storage, postage and handling) and website design costs. I have a printing and fulfillment company waiting for the go-ahead.
For more beautiful screen shots from the cookbook be sure to check out my official website, Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like too. Thanking you in advance!
Risks and challenges
If I'm unsuccessful with this Kickstarter campaign then I won't be able to keep the US postage costs down. So please support me and grab a copy for a friend too!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
