Jessica Pack decided to “start where she was,” and share her true self as the first step in a journey to self acceptance and rejection of low self esteem. To her great surprise, her Instagram selfie posts and blog made her a social media star with followers praising her revelatory approach to becoming whole by accepting every part of herself. She has inspired a throng of fans and readers to follow her example of self love, self expression, and self empowerment and her writing, photos, and honest posts are an inspiration sensation. As a result, "Planking for Pizza" went on to become a series of valuable life lessons on: • avoiding the perfectionism trap • overcoming low self esteem • building a feeling of self empowerment • getting body positive • improving physical health • building self confidence • and, creating super mental strength BUILDING SELF CONFIDENCE ─ FINDING SELF EMPOWERMENT ─ GETTING BODY POSITIVE In Planking for Pizza, Jessica teaches us how to avoid the trap of perfectionism and that exercise is 10% physical and 90% mental.

With Jess’s encouraging voice cheering you along (and convincing you to become your own cheerleader, too) you’ll discover what ignites your inner being and what creates mental strength and emotional balance. As you banish low self esteem you will step onto a pathway to building self confidence ─ onto a road to self empowerment. TOOLS FOR SELF EMPOWERMENT Author Jessica Pack’s audience expands far beyond her fellow millennials; she is inspiring people from all walks of life, age groups, shapes and sizes. "Planking for Pizza" is an exploration into how to live life with meaning and mental strength. What is so winning about Jess is her regular girl relatability; the book reads like she is your new best friend and, as she says, “If I can do it, you can do it!” She also goes deep into a conversation with you on how to deal with wobbly, low self-esteem and offers tools to ditch negative self-talk and replace it with tools for self empowerment. She shares tips, influences, motivation, advice, and ruminations she developed on her journey to fitness and physical health. Jess approaches serous topics with a sense of fun and the belief that what worked for her can help you to live a life of: • mental strength • physical health • happiness • and, self empowerment

How many of us would love to have a psychology of eating expert to explain why we head for the cheese doodles every time we get stressed? Well, now you do with Pamela Wasabi who not only helps us understand favorite food habits, urges and cravings but also the underlying reasons for it all in Nourished. Decades ago, Jon Robbins started the vegetarian food revolution with Diet For a New America, outlining the negative impacts of meat and sugar and the ethical issues of industrial food. While Robbins incited millions to become vegetarian and vegan in his polemic, the mind, body, spirit connection was left out. Picking up where Jon Robbins left off, Wasabi’s Nourished supplies the missing link with a thorough understanding of the spiritual aspect of food and how it impacts every aspect of wellness, both physical and emotional.

In her debut book, renowned farm-to-table chef Pamela Wasabi invites readers to discover a new love for cooking. For her, this isn’t about following recipes or some restrictive diet. It’s about appreciating the beauty of creating something to nourish yourself from the best nature has to offer. Anyone who’s ever felt frustrated in the kitchen or who relies on the microwave or daily takeout will learn how to easy it is to choose ingredients and make a satisfying meal all on your own. Pamela shows readers how learning to cook helped her to overcome medical challenges and put her on the path to becoming a plant-based chef. Organized in accordance with the life-cycle of a plant, from seed to plant to the nourishment on the table, Wasabi shares her passion for cooking healthy meals for loved ones. In the Roots section of the book, she explains what her life was like before she learned to cook or even knew what it meant to be vegan, and how getting pregnant and contending with a medical issue led her to educate herself about nutrition and change careers. The Kitchen section details about her decision to become a chef. She also explains the importance of cooking with quality ingredients. The Table portion examines the psychology of eating, why we like what we like and all the benefits we gain from cooking for ourselves. Finally, the Harmony section provides an overview of the role of cooking serves in family life and in our society, in general. What is the effect of losing our culinary traditions, and how can we restore them?

If you have ever dreamed of having a personal chef to provide you and your loved ones with hearty healthy food paced with ingredients for an optimal diet, look no further. Noted natural foods chef has created an inspirational guide that will please any palate and improve every reader’s health and wellbeing.

From the Author: "Over the past four years I have been interviewing and filming medical marijuana patients and key stakeholders in the industry throughout the 25 states that have legalized marijuana as a medicine. This manuscript will feature those stories with important background material on the historical use of marijuana as a medicine, it’s demonization and current renaissance. Stories include patients from age 6 through 93, who have struggled with cancer, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s, AIDs and HIV, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, seizure disorders, autism, PTSD, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, depression, sleep disorders, anorexia, opioid abuse, alcoholism, psoriasis, and glaucoma. It also features an interview with co-author of California proposition 215, the compassionate use act that passed in 1996, with images and stories about the first medical marijuana dispensary in the U.S. the “San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club.” Additional stories will include physicians, pharmacists, cultivators, formulary medicine makers, dispensary owners, and nonprofit agencies advocating for their patients."
