Simple hands-on healthy cooking classes, workshops, retreats and events with holistic nutrition tips to holistic practitioners, yoga students, former NFL players, and office professionals. Teach simple culinary skills with organic real whole foods, focus on local farmers market shopping. 90% plant-based with addition of wild cold-water fish. Goal of book is additional speaking engagements / hands-on cooking events with holisitic / wellness / yoga conferences, retreats, organizations. Consumers are healthy, interested in holistic way of living, practice yoga, get massages. But consumers do not know how to cook simple healthy meals. More women than men, 30-65 years old. Many self-employed / entrepreneurs.

Title: A New View of Healthy Eating Subtitle: Simple Intuitive Cooking with Real Whole Foods. Design direction based on winning 99designs Book Cover. Design direction for 4 spreads: Chapter Breaks, Content with Photos, Recipes (2 types) Book size: 8 x 10 Approximately 200 pages First print run with Createspace Look and feel: Impactful, colorful, inviting, welcoming, approachable, friendly. Positive, uplifting energy The book teaches simple culinary techniques, includes simple recipes, and the readers will learn to create their own beautiful dishes using local, seasonal farmers market-fresh. There will be alot of food photography and color blocking in the book. More magazine-like / lifestyle than a traditional cookbook. Would like layout direction /format of pages that can be extended to the remainder of the book for consistency in layout for the entire book. The book includes 6 basic types of information. Each of these needs to stand out differently in the book layout, AND must also have consistent format of each in the book 1. Chapter Breaks 2. Recipes (Black font) 3.

I have loved working with Suzena on all my creative projects for two years, with my cookbook, "A New View of Healthy Eating," business cards, posters, and new 7 Day Plant-Based Challenge. Her work is very creative, clean, and always right on the strategic direction for my company and brand. I will continue to work with Suzena and totally recommend her to my entrepreneurial friends.
