Hello to all the fans and friends of Glorious One-Pot Meals!

Yes, it has been a very long time between newsletters. If you have met me in person, I may have warned you that I send our newsletters very sporadically, though it has been longer than I had intended to go since our last contact. My only excuse is that the past five months have gone by at warp speed as I have bounced from interviews to book signings to conferences to speaking events, and I am finally getting a chance to slow down and catch up. Phew! Summer has arrived right in time. :)

Thanks to all of you who helped the new edition of Glorious One-Pot Meals sell nearly 15,000 copies during the first quarter it was available! You have contributed an amazing number of Amazon reviews, blog postings, articles in the media, and recommendations that have helped propel the book forward and spread the word. Hearing your Glorious One-Pot Meal stories and experiences remind me why I've already spent a decade teaching tens of thousands of home cooks this go-to cooking method for healthy, wholesome dinners.

In this issue:

• National Multiple Sclerosis Society connection
Amazon's new photo comment feature: Share your GOPM photos!
Links and coupons for Dutch ovens

• Glorious One-Pot Meal tip: Salad dressing
• Blog and Twitter
• Upcoming events

Happy new year and happy cooking! Hope to see you at a Glorious One-Pot Meal event!

Glorious One-Pot Meals Gives Back

I first became interested in nutrition when Multiple Sclerosis robbed me of sight in one eye when I was 29. The GOPM technique arose out of the conviction that changing my diet would change my future with the disease. I was right; I am stronger and healthier at forty than ever before.

I love sharing my story and cooking technique with MS patients and sufferers of other chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, because I know the impact a whole-foods diet can make in a life.

In May, the Arizona chapter of the National MS Society hosted me in Phoenix and Tucson to offer patient education programs to their membership. In September, the Colorado chapter will feature me as the keynote speaker at their Women On the Move for MS (WOM, previously WAM) luncheon in September.

While in Phoenix, I also stopped by the Fresh Start Women's Center to offer a free nutrition seminar and cooking demonstration to women finding themselves in a transitional stage in their lives.

"In just one hour, Elizabeth's powerful and compelling personal story combined with her instructive cooking demonstration helped every woman in the room feel confident in her ability to care for herself and provide for her family in ways that count most – through physical health, simple living, and quality time spent together."

Upload photos of your Glorious One-Pot Meals to Amazon!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and with food, especially, images can go a long way in helping to visualize a recipe. I, too, love photos in cookbooks, but when it comes to the Glorious One-Pot Meals cookbooks there was no way to produce a photo-filled cookbook and still keep the price under $20. Most important to me is that this cookbook is accessible to everyone (save your money to buy the Dutch oven!) because everyone can benefit from this technique no matter what your income level or previous cooking experience. Sadly, this meant no photos inside my books.

Fortunately, Amazon now allows you to upload your own food photos as part of a book review! Check out these fabulous Glorious One-Pot Meal photos from excited readers and consider uploading your own to share with those Amazon browsers who are not sure if they would like this cookbook.

Dutch Oven Deals

Speaking of Dutch ovens, I've started a new page on my blog where I'm compiling links and coupons to cast iron Dutch ovens. I've connected with CajunCastIron.com to offer my readers 2-quart enamel-coated cast iron Dutch ovens for -- dare I say it -- under $35?

A great find is a little 1-quart seasoned cast iron Dutch oven that is a perfect size for a GOPM for one. If your office has a toaster oven, pack your 1-quart pot with ingredients the night before, store it in the fridge until noon, and in 30 minutes your delicious, wholesome lunch could be the envy of all your coworkers. It's cheaper than eating lunch out, better for you, and sure beats a protein shake if you're trying to watch calories.

Glorious One-Pot Meal Tip: Salad dressing
I'm always on the lookout for easy ways to switch out flavors in my GOPMs. One of my favorite things to do is to browse the salad dressing/marinade aisle in the grocery store for interesting flavor combinations, and then drizzle them over chicken, fish, or meat in a veggie-packed Glorious One-Pot Meal.

Spectrum's Organic Pomegranate-Chipotle salad dressing has got me whipped. It’s a little bit tart and a little bit sweet with a little bit of fire to keep your mouth awake.

Try any salad dressing or marinade that is dairy-free for good results in Glorious One-Pot Meals.

Blog and Twitter

Did you know that diet and lifestyle changes can be more effective than angioplasty when dealing with cardiovascular disease? Have you tried Agave Nectar as a healthy, low-glycemic sugar substitute? Can you recommend a good, ammonia-free hair dye? What is the manufacturing industry doing about bisphenol-A in plastic water bottles and canned foods? These are just a few of the topics I've touched on recently at my Effortless Eating blog.
