ABOUT THE BOOK:
Simply Real Eating is a not just a cookbook, it’s a true healthy lifestyle guidebook, all written with one goal in mind: to inspire you to eat better and take care of yourself (and those you love), but with more simplicity and joy, and in ways that work in the midst of a busy life. Weaved in and amongst the 125 stunningly beautiful, approachable real-food (and naturally gluten-free) recipes, is something much deeper: a conversation about the bigger picture of not just creating a healthy lifestyle, but creating a healthy lifestyle that lasts.
The book is broken down into Sarah’s 7 signature steps that make the real difference. Within each chapter, you’ll also find inspiring ideas on how to take these recipes and turn them into your own healthy daily rituals: throughout your days, weeks, and seasons, to help you create a healthy daily lifestyle that lasts.
Mornings sipping gorgeous superfood lattes or smoothies, bites of better-than-coffeeshop baked healthy treats, warm cozy bowls, and satisfying weekend brunches.
Afternoons made easy with make-ahead dishes, salads, quick healthy toasts, and bowls for #lunchladies on the go, and the realistic recipes you need to make your weekdays work with ease, no matter what else is going on.
When that late afternoon hunger pang hits? Your inspired snack game is now covered.
Your healthier happy hours, done.
Evenings filled with beautiful and simple meals to help you gather around the table with the people you love the most, for both weeknight magic and hosting with ease.
Your date nights, upgraded.
And, of course, free sweets and sips for every season and reason.
All of the recipes in this book are
Naturally gluten-free and food sensitivity friendly
5 ingredients or less (or close to it).
This book will change the game, your heart, your kitchen and your life.
It’s time for a better way to think about our food.
A more simple way. A more intentional way. A more delicious way. And a more calm and joyful way to be healthy that can actually last for the rest of your life, with ease.
Without the extremes.
Without the guilt.
Without the overwhelm.
Without all the stress.
Because this much I know is true: it doesn’t have to be so hard. We just have to make a change in how we’re approaching it.
For most of us, this means that we have to wipe the slate totally clean. To forget all the old programming, and outdated messages around food, and welcome in a new way of thinking about food that looks at our health in a much different and bigger picture way:
That it’s not just about the food. It’s about how deeply connected it is to the rest of our lives: physically, mentally, relationally, and emotionally too. It’s about learning how to live better in-between the black and white rules, in the beautiful land of gray, as I like to call it: with more ease, more freedom, more simplicity, and more grace.
In learning to embrace this, we can learn how to create a healthy lifestyle that actually lasts for our whole lives.
Why does that matter? So we can take back our time and energy to focus on what really matters in life: the people we love, our purpose and work in this world, and to be the best version of ourselves as possible. Because we’re only given a short time on this earth, so we might as well make it count.
So, welcome, my friend. To this way of life that I hope will simplify, encourage and uplift you, as you go about your daily life, no matter how busy you are, or the season of life you are in.
This book is my personal collection of the things—habits, foods and recipes—that have brought me back to good, over and over again, and the rituals behind them that have made a healthy lifestyle a lot more effortless, easy and long-lasting.
Learning how to honor and weave in these little daily acts of kindness for my body over time have nourished, sustained and filled me up physically, mentally and emotionally, through many seasons and ups and downs in my own life.
I wrote this book in hopes that these ideas will do the same for you.
I wrote this book because being healthy includes, but is so much more than, just the food you eat.
To remind you that we always have a choice in our mood, our energy, and what we choose to give to the world, starting with what we put in our mouths and on our tables. It’s all connected, always.
So whether you’re an entrepreneur, a leader, a parent or spouse, a student or seeker on a quest for your very best life, the equation is simple: eat real food most of the time, and you’ll feel better. Do it daily and with intention and you will be unstoppable.
The ultimate goal? That you feel calm, empowered and joyful around food, and in taking care of yourself too. To find the joy in eating and being well, as a lifestyle that can last. Because we all need new ideas. Ways to stay inspired and ways to remind ourselves to keep things simple and create more joy in our lives. And a way to always have those options and ideas at our fingertips in the moments that we need them most.
This book that you hold in your hands is just that. It isn’t just a cookbook.
It’s a life book.
I wrote this book for you.

*don’t forget, if you purchase any books in person at a independent book store or any retailer below, to thank them for carrying it (and thank them for supporting a small business!)
*so many of you have asked if there anything they can do that “helps” me in this process. Honestly? It’s this: taking 1 minute to leave a review on amazon. It seems so silly, but it’s soooooo very helpful, and helpful so that other people can find it and know what it’s really like!
