Getting to Know You and Great Life Cookbook Giveaway

Happy new year! I hope your holidays were happy and healthy, and that you’re ready for some great new content on Veggie Quest in 2014.

But first, I need your help.

You see, I love writing Veggie Quest—sharing plant-based recipes, healthy eating tips, and exciting new research to keep you motivated. But sometimes, I feel like I’m sending my posts out into the ether. That is to say, aside from people who leave me comments (love you guys!), I don’t know my readers as well as I’d like.

That’s a problem, because while I do write for my own enjoyment, what really makes me happy is knowing that Veggie Quest is useful to you. So I’d like to know: Who are you? What diet style do you follow? What healthy-eating challenges do you struggle with? What would you like to see more of on Veggie Quest? So I’ve created a brief (10-question) survey, and I’d be over the moon if you’d take a moment to fill it out. (All responses are anonymous.)

Also, did I mention that a bribe is involved?

The Great Life Cookbook giveaway!

That’s right: Everyone who completes the survey AND leaves me a comment to let me know that they did will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of The Great Life Cookbook.

If you haven’t heard of it, The Great Life Cookbook is a whole-food, plant-based, gluten-free cookbook that solves one of the great conundrums of our time: what to bring to a potluck!

This gorgeously photographed cookbook is packed with healthy recipes that serve 20-24 people, along with tips for cooking for a crowd. (Or just stocking your freezer.) The cookbook provides a full 7+ course menu for each month of the year, so you can throw a sensational plant-based soiree every month, or just find your new go-to potluck dish. (I’m thinking that the apple plum bars may end up being my new favorite.)

As a caveat, some recipes contain oil, but the authors include options for making these recipes oil-free. Some salt is also used, but can potentially be reduced or eliminated in many of the recipes without too much impact.

I just got the cookbook myself, and so far it’s one of my favorite Christmas presents this year. (Thanks Mom and Dad!) I can’t wait to dig in and start cooking, and I’m thrilled to share it with you!

Still haven’t taken the survey? Click here to fill it out now!

Remember, the survey is anonymous, so you have to leave me a comment letting me know you did it to be entered into the drawing. I’ll notify the lucky reader in a post next week, so check back soon.

Note: The giveaway ends at 12 noon on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. Be sure to fill out the survey (and leave me a comment) before that! Please also note that this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents age 18+. (Even if you aren’t eligible for the giveaway, though, I’d love it if you took the survey.)

    I took the survey, but I think I goofed on one of the questions. It was something about the health condition(s) I am trying to prevent or reverse. I was supposed to give further details in the "Other" comment box but failed to. So, here's my cold, hard facts: I AM insulin resistant, but since I ate my way into this, I am TRYING to eat my way out of it and thereby completely (

    I took the survey, too.<br />I&#39;ve long wished for a cookbook that had whole-food, plant-based recipes for potlucks and social gatherings. Glad to know about this one.
