About

Recipes for a Zesty Life

A stunning 8.5x11” coffee table book, bursting with over 350 pages of inspiration, practical guidance, and beautiful photography; Recipes for a Zesty Life is a soulful book that will help you unearth the torch for finding your way in life, health, love, relationships and career. A unique blend of healthy plant-based recipes, nutrition, short stories, practices and habits for realizing your potential and harnessing your power to change your life—and the world. 

My funding goal is $15,000. These funds will help with the cost for printing 1000 books from a well-established Canadian printer using FSC® Certified, responsibly-sourced paper. With your help, we can spread a positive message and encourage a world of compassion, love, wellness, self-acceptance and inner fullness. 

Hi, I'm Rachelle Hynes

I've always had bit of an untamable spirit for risk-taking and adventure. This innate desire is partly what thrust me deep into life's arduous classroom fairly early in life. By the time I hit 30, I'd been through an unusual measure of adversity, successes and failures. 

I believe people are craving inspiration from every day human beings—not just superhuman athletes or wealthy media personalities. And that’s what I’m offering. The book is a heart-felt expression of the lessons I've learned, and am still learning; and the components I feel have allowed me to live a zestier, happier and more meaningful life. Each component is covered within each chapter, and the book takes a 360 degree approach to wellness; incorporating mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being. 

Why It's Needed

In today’s society, many of us are struggling with anxiety, health, and finding purpose. Everywhere you turn, you're constantly bombarded with messages on how to “look better”, "obtain more stuff,"  and "be perfect". This is not healthy.

My book aims to help you uncover your inner greatness, and teach you skills to show up in the world authentic, confident and brave; with healthy tools for your journey. 

Amusing and inspirational stories & delicious recipes—Rachelle writes with a sense of humour you’ll thoroughly enjoy!

Target Market

The customer who will buy this book is looking for guidance on their journey. They don’t want to be overwhelmed with facts, complicated recipes and diets. They want to be nurtured, and they want simplicity.

Specifically, people who are thinking about exercise, self-worth and their bodies; exploring meditation, self-awareness and taking care of their minds; who are concerned about nutrition, finding purpose and motivation; and those who want to get back in touch with their body, manage the anxiety of aging and navigate the changes in their bodies with grace.  

Why you'll love it

People are grasping for ways to be healthier, happier and more fulfilled. This is an approachable and captivating coffee table book to reach for when you need inspiration and guidance; whether it’s strengthening your mind-body connection, uncovering your purpose and potential, getting through life’s struggles, or cultivating habits for lifelong health, wellness and happiness—this is the your handbook.

Book Q&A

What’s in it for me? 
You lead a busy life, and you want new meals that taste amazing, are  easy to prepare, and leave you feeling great after. I put a lot of time  into creating, testing and getting feedback on a variety of plant-based  recipes that are both tasty and satisfying!

You’ll also discover a healthy dose of inspirational content, from  short stories to easy to digest tips and tools. This book is something  to keep handy for when you need a quick pick-me-up, a last minute recipe idea, or you simply want to flip through some pretty awesome photography!

Do I have to be a vegan to buy your book? 
Heck no! These meals taste great and just happen to be vegan. Try them out and see how they make you feel. They can be a nice addition to your weekly meals, or a bridge to consuming less animal based foods in your regimen.

What’s in it for you?
Through writing and designing this book I have learned more about myself, and been able to delve deep into a heartfelt passion for  helping others. My aim is to share my experiences, insights, stories and  practices so that you can feel more vibrant, healthy and happy in your life. I hope that people enjoy this book so I can keep creating more zesty content.

Are your ingredients hard to find?
Not at all! You’ll be able to create quick and healthy meals, and have FUN doing it! These recipes have unique and complex flavours with some pretty basic ingredients that anyone can put together!

If I buy one cookbook this year why should this be the one?
This book is so much more than recipes, it’s a vulnerable expression of my own journey and I would like it to light the path in a potent way for as many people as possible, with respect to not only how they think about food and health, but to really propel them to understand that we’re all capable of so much more and have an important ingredient to offer this world. Recipes for a Zesty Life is about believing in and feeding your untapped potential. In my book you will find a 360 degree approach to life, with  insightful stories, worksheets for uncovering more of who you are,  inspirational content, nutrition and cooking tips and tools, and so much more!

Risks and challenges

As a professional designer and branding expert, there is no cost or risk or challenge associated with design or marketing of the book. The book has been fully designed and is completed.

The challenge will be gaining enough funds to cover minimum quantity printing fees, and retailer/distributor fees.
