So a month ago I was invited to celebrate Leigh Drew’s new cookbook, Greenlicious, 101 Ways to Love Your Greens. It was awesome! I was able to eat ALL of the food, it’s crazy.
You see, I get invited to launches and food events a fair bit, but 8 out 10 times it is usually a non-vegan event. I’d often get a special meal and most times people are very accommodating of my dietary needs but there’s nothing like the freedom of being able to eat everything on the table. Anyway, I shared some photos from that event in my weekly recap video – you can check it out here.
Now back to this cookbook. Greenlicious shows all the different ways you can eat more greens and show just how versatile and delicious veggies can be. It was so awesome to meet Leigh in person, she is so warm and friendly and passionate about her food. The book is also co-authored by Amanda Benham, an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist, which is really good, especially if you have a lot of questions surrounding plant-based nutrition.
Anyway, I bought the book, got it signed, and I felt healthier already. I braved myself and asked Leigh and her publisher (Arbon Publishing) if I could interview her. She said YES! I went WOOT. Here’s how it went down.
