It feels amazing to say and even more exciting to officially be a published author. When the idea for the book first came about I could never have imagined such a beautiful result. If you have been following me on my YouTube channel you will know that there are many stages that go into writing a book. First you have the idea, then you pitch it to a publisher. I was lucky enough to be taken on by Harper Collins, who believed in my vision for Eat Smart and made it a reality.

Then begins the research. Weeks spent in the kitchen going through old scrawls of recipes and experimenting with new ingredients. Once the recipes were finalised then I wanted to give each context so each recipe has a story and I have also included sections with my favourite superfoods, the health benefits of plant based ingredients and my fitness tips.

Then came the photography so you can see what each recipe looks like when I cook it. The final stage was choosing the cover, it’s the first thing that you see so it had to be perfect. After seeing several different colour palettes and shots from the photo shoot, I decided the combination of marble and copper looked so elegant and eye catching. The shot is me holding the pancakes with mango sauce, which is one of my many favourite recipes from the book. Each part of this book as been written with love and I just can’t wait to see everyone cooking my recipes in their kitchen.

So please share all your pictures with me using the #EatSmart, happy cooking! N x
