Everyday (Super)food E-book Giveaway + Rutabaga Fries

EverydaySuperFoods Cover

Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to Danielle Dewar of the food blog, Baking Backwards, and recent self-published cookbook authoress! Congratulations, Danielle!  She and I go waaaay back to many Virtual Vegan Potlucks and I’m happy to be able to spread the news of her beautiful cookbook – but also to be able to share one of her gluten-free, simple and healthy recipes along with the chance for one person to win a free download of Everyday (Super)food: Affordable Superfood Recipes for Every Day of the Week.

A couple of things that I immediately liked about Danielle’s e-book:

  • It has a lot of style – from the format to the font to the colors – it’s visually interesting and engaging.  Just what a good cookbook should be!
  • The photos are fun, messy, eye-catching, and real.
  • The recipes are whole-food based, nutrient-dense, and use sugars of which I’m not afraid.
  • It has a heavy emphasis on two of my favorite meals: breakfast and dessert!

What impresses me most is that Danielle put this together herself – creating and developing the recipes, taking the photos, designing and formatting the e-book. Talk about a huge labor of love!  And her hard work pays off.  It’s just a really fun, really creative piece of work packed with tantalizing recipes.  Unfortunately, due to serious time constraints related to recipe-testing for Somer and developing and photographing the food for my own cookbook, I was not able to give Everyday (Super)food the attention it deserves.  I look forward to spending some serious time with Danielle’s e-book once I have those obligations behind me.  If you don’t want to wait to “pick up” a copy, visit Danielle’s site to purchase at only $4.99!  The Elvis French Toast recipe alone is worth the purchase price!  But now for a little something savory…

  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 40


  • 3 large rutabagas
  • 2 pinches sea salt
  • 2 tsp. – 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 425-degrees F.

  3. Spread out the wedges evenly on a large parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden and crispy, about 25-30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining salt and a bit of extra chile powder, if desired.
  5. Serve immediately with ketchup and Vegenaise (or other non-dairy mayo).

    I follow all the links and what not! 🙂

    As for the question – hmmm, spirulina really gets me buzzing! I’m not sure if it’s the colour or the energy boost but it’s a real treat to add to my smoothies and raw energy balls 🙂

    You are so right- that elvis toast looks killer! Matcha is my favourite “superfood”! It contains caffeine so gives me a buzz regardless 😉

      Of course!! Thanks, Ali! I can’t say I eat kale every day, but I do eat lots of greens every day :-).

    I love this question! The super fid that makes me feel likea super hero is chia seeds! They are so versatile and make me feel like I’m doing something so good for myself with very little effort.

    Even though most of the hype has died down, I am still on the kale wagon. Love it, can’t get enough of it! =]

    I was lucky enough to win a Nativas Naturals package that included a big bag of maca powder. At first I wasn’t crazy about it, but I have developed a liking for that malty flavor. Plus, I just feel better when I include it in my daily green smoothie!

      That’s a good one! I love maca powder and only “discovered” it recently myself. Thanks, Terri!
