The New Wellness Mama Cookbook Is HERE…

Wellness Mama Cookbook cover

Guess what? My brand-new updated Wellness Mama cookbook with over 100 new recipes is now available everywhere books are sold today! Despite all of the literary comparisons of writing a book to birthing a baby, it turns out that the books do in fact take longer!

The NEW Wellness Mama Cookbook…

If you’ve been a reader for a few years (many thanks to you!), you may remember my original Wellness Mama Cookbook that I self-published a couple of years ago. What you may not have known about that cookbook is that I saved up for months to be able to afford to print copies in large enough quantities to make them a reasonable price to sell.

I love Amazon for all things shopping, but almost had a nervous breakdown trying to put it all together, so I decided not to reprint additional copies when the original print run sold out.

Old Wellness Mama Cookbook – Just $248?!

I was happy with my decision to never print more cookbooks until I got a few angry emails from wonderful readers who found my cookbook on Amazon and wanted to buy it. Except it cost over $200!

Since I hadn’t printed more copies, Amazon only had used copies left and they were expensive! I also got a lot of emails asking for me to re-release the cookbook.

A Win:Win:Win

I’m so excited to announce that I’m finally re-releasing the cookbook and this time I have the help of an incredible editor and publisher!

In fact, you can order it from any of these places (or anywhere books are sold!):

Amazon | Target | Barnes and Noble | Books A Million | Indie Bound

If you’re more of a digital person, it is also available on:

KindleiBooks | Google Play | Kobo

I’ve added over 100 new recipes that aren’t on the blog or in the original cookbook and they’ve helped make the design and photos beautiful.

The Best Part?

The cookbook is SOOOO much better and it’s so much cheaper too! You can order right now at a heavily discounted price (as low as 30% off!)

(Also- The publishing team has people who specialize in dealing with the retailers to make everything happen… I’ll be sending them a gift basket and perhaps a hand-painted mural showing my gratitude!)

A Peek Inside…

The majority of the recipes in the new and improved cookbook are fast, easy and made with all-natural ingredients. Many are slow-cooker, Instant Pot or one-pot meals that come together quickly. From the more eloquent words in the official description:

With six kids, a popular blog, and no free time, Katie, creator of the incredibly popular Wellness Mama website, knows firsthand how difficult it is to cook a healthy, homemade dinner every night. Faced with her own health challenges, and also concerned about the frightening statistics on the future health of her children’s generation, Katie began to evaluate the foods she was eating and feeding to her family.

She became determined to find a way to create and serve meals that were wholesome, easy to prepare, budget-friendly, and family approved. The Wellness Mama Cookbook is a compilation of all that she has learned, with 200 simple, delicious recipes using all-natural ingredients; meal plans; time-saving tips; and advice that will take the guesswork out of dinner.

The recipes and practical advice Katie offers will help you eliminate processed foods and move toward more healthy, home-cooked meals that are easily prepared—most in thirty minutes or less. The recipes focus on whole foods that are free of grains and refined sugars and without harmful fats, but are still delicious and full of flavor. With a variety of slow-cooker and one-pot meals, light lunches, dinners, and desserts, you’ll be eating better in every way in no time at all.

Recipes include Sesame Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas, Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche Lorraine, Beef and Zucchini Stir Fry, and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, as well as recipes for bone broths, fermented foods, and super food drinks and smoothies. Katie also shares pantry-stocking advice, two weeks of meal plans for at home and on-the-go, shopping lists, and more. This is the ultimate cookbook that readers need to incorporate healthy eating knowledge into their daily practices.

Here’s a sneak peek into the cookbook to give you an idea of what kind of recipes you can expect to find…

Tons of great kid-tested and approved breakfasts and smoothies including my kids’ favorite Apple Cinnamon Muffins and Gorilla Green Smoothie:

Tons of awesome one-pan meals (because who likes doing dishes?), including many slow-cooker meals which save me all kinds of time in the kitchen.

Moroccan Stir Fry

All-time favorites like stuffed sweet potatoes, the easiest and best Slow-Cooker Fajita Chicken ever and so much more:

There are over 200 recipes total and in all seriousness, my family could eat just these recipes for the rest of our lives and be completely happy. Some of my personal favorites from the new book (and not featured on the blog):

  • Wedge Salad with Avocado Green Dressing
  • Bacon Guacamole Bites on Sweet Potato Chips
  • Swedish Meatballs
  • No-Bake Meyer Lemon Bars
  • Gorilla Green Smoothie

This new cookbook is even better than the original and I think you’re going to love all the new recipes.

  1. If we pre-order now, will we receive the bonus when it ships in December? Or do we need to wait to order to get the bonus? SO excited to get this cook book!!! I love your blog and It looks amazing!!

    • I will definitely make sure anyone who preorders can access bonuses when they are available. Just save a copy of your email receipt 🙂 Thanks so much for reading!

  2. Since I’m a single I’m wondering if you mention if recipe leftovers can be frozen or would I need to guess which ones I can do that with? I really need to start eating better to see if it will help my health problems.

  3. Will this have the wire in where it lays flat when open? I wish I would have bought the other one when it was still available 🙂

    • It will not be spiral bound but will be able to stay open for using with cooking.

  4. Congratulations Katie, so happy for you! Not certain if I’ll pre-order, but if not I’ll keep a look out when your cookbook hits the shelves!

  5. So excited to get your book of easy kid friendly and most imporantly healthy good food! I would love for you to have a section that would give easy substitutions. Nothing more frustrating than thinking you are going to make somehting to realize you don’t have a missing ingredient. ie, no arrowroot powder could use ——,
    Another bonus I would really appreciate would be CRAZY fast meals, like you just got home from soccer and everyone is starving…go to chapter 10 and find 5 minute or less meals, would be super helpful! I so adore you Katie and thank you for sharing so much with us!

    • Oh, I would also so appreciate you having a section of your most needed supplements for yourself and your kiddos. It would be so nice to have that all in one spot. Our motto over here is…”thy food is thy medicine” so seems like it could be really fitting to have a bonus of natural remedies along with go to supplements.
      And personally I hope their are lots of pictures of your adorable cutie pies!
      Thanks so much Katie, you Rock!!

      • Yes, I agree! It would be wonderful to see a list of supplements you take and recommend, including ones for pregnancy, nursing, and for kiddos!

  6. I love your blog and can’t wait for your book to come out. I tried to find a way to contact you but this seems to be the only way. Have you even done a post about vaccines or pregnancy tests you did or didn’t do? You seem to research so much and I (and I’m sure many people) would love to know what you have found.

  7. Congratulations with your book!

    I watched your “live book reveal” a little belated and noticed that several people asked you abourt your wooden high chair. It’s a Norvegian Tripp Trapp chair from 1972 and it has recieved several design prices for form and functionality. It’s hugely popular in Scandinavia and is being passed on through generations.

  8. If I purchase the book, will there be a way to import the recipes into Real Plans?

    • You can definitely manually add them, but I’m working on getting them added automatically for you 😉

  9. Hi, As a male single parent (Cassie 10 / Taylor 8) I too am excited to try some of those Quickie Nutritious Meals you were talking about …. getting my children interested, involved in cooking and eating healthy foods is a daunting task …. especially in our American Cultures (unhealthy/ fast food) ways of existing in todays up-tempo lifestyle. Here’s hoping your new Cook Book reaches the hands of those that seek knowledge realizing that, a healthy diet, pays off producing longer more productive lives!!!

  10. Hi there 🙂

    I ‘s love to see portable lunchbox ideas for kids and adults – either quick to prepare or prepare in bulk in advance – either the beginning of the week or to freeze.

    Thanks 🙂

  11. I’m excited for the book. I ‘d love toddler breakfast ideas!

  12. Katie
    First of all I think your amazing. How do you find the time to do everything you do? Here at our house there’s only my husband and I and I was wondering about a chart of making the recipes in smaller quantities. Sometimes its hard to figure out how to do it. If you could add that that would be great!

  13. Since I can’t have dairy, I’m curious – do the recipes include the use of dairy? Thanks!

  14. Just preordered from Amazon. I’m wondering how you decide which of these comments to reply to as I still don’t see a reply to mine asking if there are any single serve recipes. I clicked on your survey link but it won’t let me post anything when I clicked “other” nor will it let me post anything in the second section, not good customer service since you actually ask people to comment.

    • So sorry for your trouble and thanks for the preorder! Most recipes are geared toward a family of 3-4, but can easily be reduced. Another option would be to make the regular size and refrigerate or freeze the extra portions for future meals.

  15. Hi Katie,

    Is your book based on gluten and sugar-free recipes?

      • Thank you Katie – sending congratulations & thanks on your website and all the great info you share with us. xx

      • Katie,
        Congratulations on your latest endeavor…you Amaze and Inspire me! I bought your original cookbook and am very curious how the new one differs. I am trying to be very wise with my spending. What does your new cookbook contain that the original does not? You mentioned it is a re-release, so I am just wondering if I would have 2 of the same cookbooks? Thank you for all you do and all of the free online advice. I am writing a book too and have an infant and 2 other young children. I haven’t written since my baby was born. How do you make time to write? God’s Blessings on you and your precious family!
        ~ Heather

        • There are over 100 new recipes in this one that were not in the original one…

  16. Hi, is there a link to preorder the book from amazon uk? Would I get the bonus if I preorder the book from amazon uk not using a link from your blog? Thank you

  17. I preordered your book when you wrote your first post about it a while back. Do I have to wait until December to see the recipe for the muffins?

  18. Hi there,

    I pre ordered your book and got the email to access the bonuses. Super cool! However when I contacted Grove, they said that I cannot have their bonus because I am already a member and the bonuses only apply to new members. So is there an alternative bonus I can get since I cannot take advantage of the Grove one?


  19. Wondering if there are any Instant Pot recipes or instructions on how to with recipes? Thank you!

  20. I’m purchasing the cookbook! However, I would love it if you included your kumbucha, elderberry syrup, acv drinks and many other of your healthy daily supplements. I’m always on your website to make these drinks and I would love to just flip through a book! Congratulations on your new cookbook!

    • Thanks Mary-Kay. Unfortunately since I went with a traditional publisher for this book, they had final say on what recipes to include.

      • So am i understanding right that not all the recipes on your blog/website are in the new cookbook?

  21. So excited about this! Can’t wait to buy my copy! It’s already in my Amazon cart! Yay!

  22. I try to feed my family healthy foods, but so often we just go for what’s quick and easy, so we end up eating way too many grains. I just read your posts about remineralizing teeth, and if that’s not a motivation for changing my diet, I don’t know what is! So I’m wondering–how WAPF/remineralizing friendly is your cookbook? Thanks!

    • Very 🙂 It is grain free and has minimal almond flour or coconut flour even. It focuses a lot of foods like broth, healthy fats and vegetables.

  23. Hi! I just ordered your book from Amazon, but when I go to the bonuses page, there is nothing there for me to submit my information to. I went to the link you post above. Just trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong.

    • We made a few site updates today so you might need to refresh your browser a couple of times and/or delete the cache so it will load correctly…

      • Got it. Thank you!

  24. Hi Katie,
    I just received your cookbook today & I am so excited to start trying the recipes out. I have been reading your blog for some time and I have wanted to return back to “real food”. As a working mom, sometimes your goals can need some serious consideration. Beautiful book with thoughtful commentary. It is great inspiration. I just wanted you to know I appreciated it.

  25. Just wanted to say that I picked up your cookbook yesterday at Barnes and Noble and I am excited to get off work today so I can go read it! I just recently got into your blog and have already made drastic changes to my families diet. I have two boys. One of my own and one I inherited from my husband lol
    They’re both awesome and unique in their own way. My older son loves vegetables and my younger son would rather starve than to eat anything besides mac and cheese. SO hopefully your recipes will add some spark back into our cooking routine. Especially, because the younger boy has such awful ear infections. (bought garlic oil yesterday)
    I’m Active Duty USN and so is my husband. I can’t say we don’t get good medical care, but we don’t get a lot of choices. I’m pregnant again, with a girl and due in April, and your blog has helped me make more informed decisions on how i WANT my body to be treated during labor. The birth of my son was almost a traumatic experience and I don’t want that for either of us this time. I don’t really have access to a midwife. They have very few in the Navy and unfortunately I wasn’t given that option and I wasn’t allowed to pick my OB. That’s just how it goes here.
    Anyway… I wanted you to know that you ARE inspiring people. That’s really awesome and sometimes nice to hear positives instead of all negatives. Good luck to you and your family! Keep up the great work!

  26. Just picked up your second book at Target. I squealed when I saw it! I’ve been a fan for years and I’m so happy of all the progress your business has made. Much love!

  27. Just ordered! Can’t wait to get it! Bless you and your family in 2017 and beyond!

  28. I just recieved my copy of your new book. It’s great and my 3 kids are just as excited as I am. I preordered on July 21, it has been a very exciting wait. Well worth it!

  29. I can’t figure out where to submit proof of purchase to receive the bonus. I purchased in September. Can you post a link, please? Thank you!

  30. Hello,

    Love your blog and purchased five cookbooks to which I gave as Christmas gifts! The information you provide in the begin is excellent and very helpful. It contains information I’ve known and try to adhere to with my family of six. It was so easy to just give my friends and family the cookbook than trying to collect all the information it contained, it’s all in one place!

    My children have nut and seed (one child -no sesame or sunflower but can have nuts) allergies. Which flour would you suggest using as an alternative to almond flour?

    • Thanks so much! Can you guys tolerate coconut flour? If so, it is a good option, and cassava is another good one to try that is also nut free.

  31. I just got your cook book a couple weeks ago (a gift from my mom) and I’ve made about a dozen of them so far. My family is really enjoying them! But I do have a question on one of your recipes, Cottage Pie-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. In the ingredients it has 1/2c beef bone broth listed, but no where in the instructions does it tell you when to use it. Also, the pictures with the recipes looks like you added spinach to the meat mixture and I would love to try it with it. Do you just add the spinach when you add the seasonings? Thank you so much!

    • Yes, just add spinach when seasonings are added, and I add the broth after the meat and veggies when sauteing 🙂 So glad you are enjoying it!

  32. Hi Wellness Mama,

    Your cookbook looks awesome and I’m in need of a healthy, easy cookbook.
    How adaptable is your cookbook for a kosher diet?
    I saw on amazon the image of one recipe-seafood bisque – and thought id better find out if most recipes combine dairy and meat or include seafood other than fish with fins and scales, because then it wouldnt be practical for me.

    Many thanks!

    • Great question… I don’t have a lot of experience cooking for a kosher diet, but will answer as well as I can… There are probably 10-15 recipes that contain seafood from sources other than with fins/scales, but the majority do not. Many recipes contain meat but in almost all of them, the dairy is optional or on the side and can be omitted.

  33. Is the bonus still available with current book
    orders and with the Kindle version?

  34. Hello Katie,
    Thank you so much for this resource, I am very interested in getting your cookbook as we have often used your recipes in the past and enjoyed them. However, on amazon I am unable to see sample recipes and this makes me uncertain to buy as our family of 6 is preparing to move as missionaries in Honduras. Do most of the recipes require special items ie) gluten free flour, etc?

    • Some of the recipes (but definitely not the majority of them) require nut flours or more uncommon ingredients, but the majority focus on whole real food ingredients like meats and vegetables and should be easy to make in most places.

  35. Hi Katie,
    I recently ordered your cookbook and I am enjoying it! I keep looking at the “tortilla looking things” 🙂 on the front cover and wondered if you have a recipe for those somewhere. Did I miss it in the cookbook?

    • Yes, that was a last minute recipe that made the photo shoot but not the book. I’ll try to post soon 🙂 Thanks so much for ordering and for the support!

  36. Where do I go toorder?

  37. Just picked up your book from target, I’m so excited!!! One of the things I was excited about was the tortilla shown on the front. Since I’m gluten free, it’s hard to find a suitable tortilla that stills taste good. The recipe doesn’t seem to be anywhere in the book….am I missing it?!
    Thanks Katie for all you do!!!

    • Funny story. That was a recipe that didn’t make it in the cookbook (I was still perfecting it at the time) but the publisher decided to use the picture anyway. Don’t worry, I’ll be posting the recipe on the blog very soon 🙂

  38. This the best cookbook I have ever owned and I have so many cookbooks!! The recipes are delicious and we have already put many of them on our monthly meal rotation! Thank you so much!

  39. I just made the Energy Gel. Is there a misprint in the liquid quantities because it never gelled.

    Thanks for your help!
