Sarah Britton's "My New Roots" Book Launch at Good Egg | April 12, 2015

Hi everyone! I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. Today's weather was absolutely wonderful and I spent the morning/early afternoon downtown Toronto at Kensington Market for Sarah Britton's My New Roots Book Launch at Good Egg.

Sarah Britton signing copies of My New Roots
Britton's My New Roots is a cookbook comprised of everyday recipes that are plant-based. Britton is a nutritionist and a blogger (yay fellow blogger love) and this book is her first release ever. Britton inspires her readers to make healthy choices everyday and she actually catalogues many recipes on her blog, which you can check out over at http://www.mynewroots.org/ - The recipe book includes 100 seasonal recipes and encourages a diet based on whole foods. All of the recipes include organic fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lentils, nuts and seeds. Each recipe has nutritional and health information so you are aware of the benefits for each recipe! There is something for everyone in this book! 
Michele and me with Troian! 
The launch for the book was held at the very lovely bookshop Good Egg right in the heart of Kensington on Augusta. Good Egg primarily features cookbooks and kitchenware stuff, but they also carry a wide range of books. It is such a cute and quirky little shop and I definitely recommend visiting if you are ever in the area! It was a full house with many lining up to buy their book and get it signed.  We literally couldn't move at some point - so that is saying something of how busy the launch was! Sarah even made and brought in some homemade sesame brittle for everyone, which was DELICIOUS! While we were in the bookshop chatting about the book, we saw some familiar faces: Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams, who came out to support their friend Sarah Britton. Michele from JustALilLost and my bestfriend, Nikki from nikkitheknack were able to chat with Troian for a bit and say hi to Patrick which was a cool moment! 

Overall it was a lovely Sunday afternoon spent with my bestfriend and fellow bookish bloggers AND the lovely gals at Random House! I can't wait to start cooking some recipes from the book and many congratulations to Sarah for such a wonderful achievement! I will be posting a full review of the book on the blog soon and I will include my attempt at a recipe or two (with photos included). So be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that to go up later this month! 

The book is now available for purchase at Chapters/Indigo and/or Book Depository!
