A Little Bit of History

I began writing cookbooks in 2017 under the name Katie’s Bright Kitchen. I initially created those resources for readers who were looking to cut sugar and flour out of their diets without compromising on taste. Those cookbooks are no longer available, so I decided to create this volume as a sort of “mash up” of all of my best content from the past 5 years. Thanks to comments from my devoted readers over the years, I’ve tweaked and updated the crowd favorites, and added lots of sparkly new content. To me, this cookbook feels like the culmination of all those years of work, a sort of ‘greatest hits’ album with lots of fabulous new recipes that are sure to become favorites.

NEW! “Empty the Produce Drawer” Meal Templates!

Recipes are great, but sometimes the fussiness of a recipe is more of a hindrance than a help. In this edition, I’ve compiled a fun new section of versatile meal templates to help you feel more empowered in the kitchen. You’ll be able to use what you have, reduce waste, build flavor intuition, and be more creative in the kitchen. From “Pantry Purge Chili,” to “Whatever Bean Soup,” to “What’s in the Fridge Slaw,” or “Anything Green Pesto,” I hope you’ll have as much fun cooking from these templates as I had creating them! 😄

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: If I have your older cookbooks is this one worth buying?

A: Yes!! I’ve made sure to update this collection with lots of new recipes, tips and tricks, and new photographs to make it the crown jewel of your Katie collection. While there are some Katie classics in here, they’ve been given some polishing and updating based on feedback from readers over the years.

Q: I don’t eat sugar or flour. Will this cookbook be useful to me?

A: Absolutely! All the recipes are naturally free of sugar, sweeteners, and processed flours, with the exception of a little bit of optional honey added (for sweeter palettes), and a few recipes using coarsely ground oats and almond meal.

Q: I follow a food plan with weighed and measured meals. Will this cookbook be useful to me?

A: This cookbook doesn’t follow any particular food plan, but many recipes can easily be adapted to one. I provide measurements for most recipes and weights when more exact measurements are called for. When a recipe is looser in structure, you might see ingredients like “a few handfuls of salad greens” or “a sprinkle of seeds” which is easily adaptable to any style of eating.

Q: I’m not vegan. Will I still like these recipes?

A: Readers have often told me they’ve fed my meals to meat lovers and dairy lovers alike to rave reviews! Many recipes also easily lend themselves to the addition of your favorite animal proteins.

Book Reviews

Best Ideas Ever! Feeding Your Joy is the best cookbook I have ever purchased! The author provides templates for making just about everything, with loads of ideas for combinations of healthy foods you want for everyday meals. Perfect for singles who don't like cooking for one. Recipes are plant based, however, it is very simple to add in or substitute meat, poultry or fish for the plant proteins without messing with the idea of the recipe. The book is beautiful, well organized, and absolutely terrific! Read more
