Sexy Delicious Healthy: cookbook

Sexy Delicious Healthy started as a private Facebook group and was created to share healthy recipes and fitness tips; however, it has grown to be so much more.

In fact, magical things are happening in this group. In just a short time, the dialogue went from "what's your favorite exercise for great abs" to "I can’t eat today, because I hate my body." It turned into a place where women felt safe enough to share. It gave women a place to recognize and discuss their relationship with food and a place to work on positive body image. The ladies in the group formed a sisterhood that became so very empowering for all involved.

Now, we are sharing this experience with the world by creating a therapeutic cookbook titled “Sexy Delicious Healthy: the Cookbook.”

Our cookbook features delicious recipes by the Sexy Delicious Healthy group members, genuine essays by women about their often complicated  relationship with food, and stunningly authentic portraits of the women sharing their stories and recipes.

It reads like a diary and gives like a cookbook.

This book allows all women to be involved. We hope, after connecting to another woman’s story, there is the opportunity to try her meal. We hope, after looking into her eyes, we strive for a little more loving kindness for other women and ourselves. We want to provide the opportunity to taste what she has after crying the way she has. It’s a way to inspire closeness among women, start a united front against deprivation, minimize the feelings of inadequacy, and, most of all, combat marginalization from one female to another.

Make a contribution to help the ladies of Sexy Delicious Healthy publish their cookbook; make a contribution to be part of a beautiful movement that celebrates the female body, deliciously healthy food, and connection.

Money will go toward marketing and publication. Our goal of $2,000.00 is a conservative one, because we are lucky to have many talented people including test cooks, graphic designers, photographers and more who are volunteering their resources and services simply because they believe in the project. How awesome is that?!

On behalf of women worldwide, we thank you.
