May 12, 2017 – Seeking a healthy life balance doesn’t have to be arduous, as proven in two books publishing this month: The Wellness Project: How I Learned to Do Right by My Body, Without Giving Up My Life by Phoebe Lapine (May 16, 2017) and PNW Veg: 100 Vegetable Recipes Inspired by the Local Bounty of the Pacific Northwest (May 9, 2017) by Kim O’Donnel. In The Wellness Project, Phoebe talks of finding what truly made her well as a woman living with an autoimmune disease, while PNW Veg tackles the bounty of vegetables the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

After she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in her early twenties, Phoebe Lapine felt overwhelmed by her doctor’s strict protocols and confused when they directly conflicted with information on the bestseller list. After experiencing mixed results and a life of deprivation that seemed unsustainable at best, she adopted 12 of her own wellness directives—including eliminating sugar, switching to all-natural beauty products, and getting in touch with her spiritual side—to find out which lifestyle changes truly impacted her health for the better. The Wellness Project is the insightful and hilarious result of that year of exploration—part memoir and part health and wellness primer (complete with 20 healthy recipes), it’s a must-read not just for those suffering from autoimmune disease, but for anyone looking for simple ways to improve their health without sacrificing life’s pleasures. For more information on The Wellness Project contact Casey Maloney, cmaloney@penguinrandomhouse.com

Simply delicious, healthy “vegetable-forward” recipes are at the heart of PNW Veg, a cookbook that celebrates the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. From simple weeknight meals to on-the-go snacks and sweet- tooth satisfying desserts, this book gives over 100 ways to celebrate seasonal produce, with recipes like Sweet Corn and Red Lentil Soup, Baked Pasta and Greens Casserole, Cherry Fro-Yo, and more. Vegetarians and omnivores alike will be eager to eat their vegetables, and the convenient gluten-free and dairy-free symbols make navigating the book a breeze for readers with dietary restrictions.  For more information on PNW Veg contact Corinna Scott, cscott@sasquatchbooks.com
