BLE Cookbook Announcement

This week, I’m coming to you from Maui during a writer’s retreat to tell you all about the new book I’m working on—the Official Bright Line Eating Cookbook. Watch the vlog to hear all about it.

    Hi Susan. I love the idea of your book as I am not a big cook and find I rotate the same foods over and over again until boredom hits and I crave change. Sometimes that craving causes dips in my performance and off BLE foods to creep I’m. Something new and approved is right up my alley. I am currently in Rezoom and reading a chapter a night from your first book and LOVE the personal stories and pictures at the end of each chapter. Each one of these success stories is like my reward for completing a chapter. Could you continue these success stories in your next book and perhaps reach out to these BLE’rs for a couple sample food plans they go to regularly, that may include, or not, some of your suggested recipes? Also I am a carnivore so completely vegan recipes would be a bit of a disappointment.
    Blessings and good luck with the book.

    Great idea about how the BLE Cookbook will be simple and different in terms of non-“sexy” recipes.
    I hope your next step won’t be to offer a BLE catalogue of packaged foods (dressings, soups, herb mixes, vitamins) for sale online?

    Looking forward to it and I am glad it isn’t your typical cook book. It can’t be if it is for Bright Line Eating. Ideas we all need, when to eat the foods, like what starchy veges not to eat at dinner all the time and what to change it up to be. The science behind it always helps me understand things like the set point you were talking about.

    I do see a couple of poseur BLE cookbooks already in Amazon. Perhaps you could help us distinguish the official one from the fakes by showing us the cover when it’s been finalized and approved. Looking forward to it! Best always and gratitude from another Yvonne

    Excited about this cookbook. Please make it user friendly and don’t just cater to USA and ensure the measurements, temperatures etc., are metric so that those of us in other countries don’t have to do the whole conversion thing.

    Like many others, I suffer from food boredom so am looking forward to the OFFICIAL BLE COOKBOOK. BUT I’m also Hashi’s and insulin resistant and have modified my food plan to eliminate the grains altogether from my weight loss phase. So PLEASE include some recipes that dont require grains. I eschew LEGUMES as well because they are so high in carbohydrates. I’m particularly looking for innovative vegetable combos with BLE-approved spices or sauces. Getting really tired of two salads a day!

      You might, might, might want to check out MasteringDiabetes.org. Cyrus and Robbie are brilliant about insulin resistance! I first heard about Susan through them…

    I am so excited for this release in October ! Hopefully the recipes will include we carnivores in the recipe selections ? Will you be doing a Reboot, Rezoom book also ? If not, please consider doing so ! Your plan is the ONLY one that I have found to be a sustainable lifestyle. I’ve been doing BLE the past four months and am down the first 22 pounds. Oh, and I am 74 years old ! Since beginning eating the BLE way, the insatiable hunger and chocolate cravings have now become history ! While I am not yet thin, I am feeling happy and free ! There is no way to truly express my deep appreciation for making BLE available to the public — you are literally a life saver !

    I look forward to the cook book. One of the reasons I stopped BLE was because it all became to hard onwhat to eat. I found the breakfast the hardest, but was just eating the same thing for lunch and dinner over and over again.
    Can’t wait !
    Thank you

    The cookbook is a great idea. I have a Paleo cookbook I love and use quite a bit. Thanks, Susan. I know I might be jumping the gun here but I think it would be a good idea to have a huge retreat for all of us BLE members. A cruise!! I would sign up in a heartbeat. It would consist of all BLE eating on the ship as well. I can dream.
    Keep the fabulous work. You are so cute!!

    Thank goodness! Definitely need this resource-coming from someone who isn’t friends with veggies or salads and not well versed in cooking healthy in general. Thank you!

  24. Mette

    Yaihhh cannot wait…….
    I love cooking and friends say i do it well. I have tried to be creative with my BLE meals but it will be great to get some new ideas. Some of my favorite meals have been “by accident” having to be creative on the road or “last minute” with no time to shop. Asian cooking has helped me a lot and fresh herbs and spices from my garden just puts the “dot above the I”. I am blessed with no food allergies and access to organic and free range foods.
    So looking forward to this book.
    129 days BLE and released 18kg.

    Thank you! I come from a long line of southern cooks, which means a lot of flour, butter, and sugar in the typical things I cook. It’s hard to think of menus and recipes that are BLE compliant. My brain gets scrambled when I try to decide what to plan to eat the next day. I want to achieve automaticity but I struggle with the meal planning so an official and atypical cookbook would be very helpful!

    Can’t wait for this! I so love your reasons, too. Your willingness to reconsider a previous decision in the light of new data/ new conditions is such a beautiful aspect of your leadership.

    Hallelujah. I’m one of those constantly wondering “what do I eat?” and fleeing from even the thought of vegetables and salads. Having “official” vegetable dishes on the printed page in front of me will help me, I believe. Thanks for the timely message about non-sexy food. It’s gonna have to be something I need to accept for the rest of my life as I’ve already spent years resisting it and paying the unhappy price for that.

    Yaaay! So excited. I’m a 10, Day 452, and 110 on maintenance and have been successfully using recipes since my first week of 14 Day Challenge. I LOVE LOVE Katie’s Bright Kitchen book and recipes and the way she specifies the F, Pr, Gr and Fr portions. Looking forward to more recipes like Katie’s that are truly BLE compliant. Thank YOU!

    THANK YOU for this. I can’t wait. I will pre-order, if that opportunity arises. Please include a LARGE section on WFPB recipes, or ideas. I have learned to love just steaming the vast majority of my vegetables; add a little salt and they’re wonderful. But, it gets old doing that. And salads are awesome, but they get old. I’m also finding protein ideas getting hard to come up with, as I do WFPB… but I can’t eat tofu eggs , beans, and hummus day-in-day-out (or can I?). So, I am very anxious and excited for this cookbook. Did I say THANK YOU!?

    1. Kima

      Linda, I eat tofu, eggs, beans or/and hummus every lunch and dinner, haha! Different beans for lunch (monday lentils, tuesday chickpeas, wednesday white beans, thursday black beans and so on) and dinner is always tofu, eggs, cottage cheese (I eat dairy) or hummus. Breakfast protein is usually yoghourt, sometimes eggs. I do´t find it boring… legumes can be eaten in salad, soup or stew, eggs in a thousand ways… Hugs.

      Hi Linda! You can eat tofu, eggs, beans, and hummus daily if you’d like! Totally up to you! 😉

    I am an everyday cook but I too have struggled to get my head around eating the BLE way and this will really help. I have Susans first book but this seems to be the perfect companion. Looking forward to October!

    If there is early ordering available will I be able to obtain one? I am in the UK.

    Many thanks.

    I’m so excited about your cookbook! When I started the boot camp back in June 2016 the first thing I did was turn to the cookbook that was included on your website. It really helped me get started. Yeah, I loved vegetables, but eating the same foods every day is just not my thing. I like variety. I love to cook and I love to try different recipes and that cookbook really helped get me through. 65 pounds later and at goal weight I am really happy about this new cookbook! I can’t wait to try something new that is on the plan to top it off. Can’t wait!

    So happy that you are planning a BLE cookbook as I struggle with finding creative meals ideas.

  38. Daria

    Thank you! I joined the boot camp specifically to see if I could figure out the food more. I have been struggling to figure out what to eat on BLE. I don’t naturally love vegetables and I don’t specifically eat plant based so it has been a struggle. I will try to wait patiently until October. That is right around the time of my birthday, so I guess that will be Susan’s birthday present to me. I look forward to it.

    Although I am excited about this cookbook, I am just starting BLE and wish there was a cookbook out already. I think you mentioned one that was in line with BLE in an earlier vlog, could you please let me know the name & author of that one while I wait for yours? Also, could you share a recipe once in a while between now and publication?

    Thanks!

    Hi Susan, I’m looking forward to the new book. It would be really helpful for the people who use metric measure if grams could be added next to ounces (maybe in a bracket). Thank you

  45. James Mennitt

    Dear god Susan please please please let there be photographs. I don”t need or want recipes or food porn but I need to see what this way of eating LOOKS like. I’m a visual artist and need to SEE what these different types of plain food look like in combinations. I can tell you’re verbally orientated and are probably walking around with a vocabulary of over a million ways to do this in your head while I have a vocabulary of about 10 ways to do BLE. Please show us what vegan combination of meals LOOKS like, what vegetarian combinations of a meal LOOKS like and what more traditional combinations of one meal LOOKS like. If all photos of meal combinations were photographed on the same size plate that would be truly helpful. I hope my entry is not to late to find your eyes…

    Exciting news about the cookbook! But please put metric measurements into the book along with the US Imperial measurements as the majority of the world is on Metric and to convert from one to the other is time consuming. This cookbook would have been so helpful when I finished boot-camp so I am looking forward to October.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I’ve been hoping you would change your mind ever since I saw that vlog. I could really use the extra support. All the recipes, cookbooks, etc. are “food porn”. All these recipes designed to “disguise” the good stuff, especially for kids. No, I want my family to learn to enjoy the simple goodness of real food. I have had times in my life where my eating was healthy, but it was usually fancied up (or sexed up to stick with the earlier analogy). I found all that work I put into “making the food taste better” was lost on my family, made me resent cooking, and ultimately lead me to fancy looking “convenience” foods. This has killed my budget and sacrificed our health. I have gained lots of weight and feel trapped in my bad habits. I love your scientific approach paired with your real life experience. I’ve danced around starting Brightline Eating, but it has already helped me get the simple veggies back. Thank you again. Good Luck finishing the cookbook. I’m excited to have it in my toolbelt.

    Hi Susan, I am excited about a BLE cook book! I bought one of those rogue supposed BLE cook books from Amazon and quickly realized it was a waste of $6 because it clearly wasn’t BLE. I heard what you’d said about knowing how to cook and not needing a cookbook when you began BLE, and I feel that. The problem for me is that I have what I call “food ADD”. I can’t stand eating the same thing over and over again. I get completely bored. And I love to eat. I love the flavours and the textures and everything. On BLE there is the opportunity for so much variety – simple meals of a protein, veg, fat and a salad can run the gamut from a poached salmon fillet with asparagus and avocado puree with a romaine salad to pho with flank steak, and seaweed salad. I also am the primary cook for my family of five, so I need flexible recipes that can accommodate a variety of preferences. And I work, so I often rely on my slow cooker (and am hoping to get an instant pot). I need the inspiration I get from cookbooks and recipe websites. I would love to see a BLE section on Allrecipes.com. So, thank you for creating the cookbook! I can’t wait to read it!

    I can’t tell you how excited I am about this! I’m a stay at home mom who cooks just about every meal for the household. I can’t wait to have a book dedicated to no sugar/no flour that isn’t filled with complicated recipes trying to make food taste close to sugar & flour. Simple, real food made simply. Thank you! Yay! Yay! Yay!
