Can't wait to get my hands on this! I'm so inspired by fresh twists on old favorites, and I'm always looking for fun ways to use up my CSA bounty.

What inspires me is finding new and fun ways to fuel my body and power me through my day. I love finding new ways to use vegan food in a creative way to give me tons of energy! Kris Carr's book sounds awesome!

Cooking and eating vegetarian/vegan food and adopting a plant based lifestyle always been my way of life as my family is culturally vegetarian from birth. I gravitate towards books like Crazy Sexy Kitchen naturally as the recipes are innovative, inspirational and give more positive energy.

I've always loved baking and cooking, coming up with my own creations. For the past year and half my family has been totally plant-based. Creating lovely, delicious, beautiful meals has become almost an art form for me. The fact that these meals keep my family healthy and vibrant just inspires me more.

I am inspired by what's around me. In the summer, I get inspired to light up the BBQ and cook up meat and veggies with watermelon on the side. In the cooler months, I start roasting root vegetables and fire up my crockpot for all day cooking soups. I love to cook according to what is local and seasonal and also I love cooking for my family to keep them healthy and happy. I absolutely love the concept of your new book! It fits perfectly into my cooking and health interests and I'd be sure to let my friends and family benefit from these new recipes! :)

What get's me motivated to cook/bake are amazing and fresh seasonal ingredients! In fact, I think I'm going to go bake something with pumpkin right now!

My inspiration comes from visiting the farmer's market or local Whole Foods and finding a food I've never tried before. Often, especially at Whole Foods, there'll be some nearby ready to answer questions or offer suggestions on ways to make a fantastic meal with my new find.

I have been vegetarian for a few years and recently went vegan after being unable to ignore all of the health problems associated with eating animal-based products I read about. The health of my family inspires me to get in the kitchen and cook everyday, using whole, plant-based foods. I received a copy of CSK in the mail today and am so inspired to expand my cooking abilities and recipes!! Beautiful cookbook!

I'm inspired by the beautiful colors of plant based foods. Making dinner is like painting, composing a work of edible art even! But rather than something distant and outside yourself, it nourishes you and is the best way I know of to connect people and let them know you care.

I have fallen in love with cooking as I have become passionate about health and wellness! I love to make healthy meals for my boyfriend and I as I know they will keep us trim, energized, and feeling our best. We both live very active lives so it is important that we fuel our bodies with the best plant-based foods possible.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kris Carr, she is such an inspiration to us breast cancer patients. Being a stage 4 fighter I have taken so much away from her book.

I am SO excited about this book!! I have been a long time follower/fan of Kris Carr and now Chad Sarno! She played a large part in my transition from vegetarian to whole foods plant based vegan. Her energy and love I know will show through her recipes and whether I win this or not, I cannot wait to cook and share that love using their recipes!! Thank you for the opportunity!!

The cold weather and my eleven year's of age grandson, Sam "gets me cooking". The cold weather inspires me to cook comfort food which brings warmth to Sam and myself. So, in other words, "soup is on". I think up yummy soup recipies like different types of lentil soups, with an array of fresh vegetables or cauliflower soup with broccoli. Well, the list is endless. Sam and I like gourmet ( as Sam calls them) herbs and spices in the soups as well. The real joy comes when Sam comes home from school and we sit down at the table together to enjoy the soup in our little glass bowls with our place setting size soup spoons. Thank you for reading this and bye for now, Elynor

Yummy-sounding recipes featuring seasonal, healthful ingredients always inspire from me to get in the kitchen and get to work.

In my family, food equals love. Anytime there is an event or a new recipe to try we gather around the table. Three years ago I challenged myself to try one new recipe per week for a year; I'm still doing it! My inspiration comes from the healing power of foods I see everyday in my own family.

Lately, Pinterest and healthy living blogs have inspired my menu at home. I love to take ideas and make adjustments based on what I have at home.

A near-empty kitchen inspires me to (a) cook creatively with what's left and (b) meal plan and select recipes for a great grocery shopping list.

Recreating family recipes with a focus on whole foods inspires me, as does cooking plant-centered, delicious natural food for my family.
