My book is self-published and is only available through my blog, not in other physical or online stores like Amazon or Barnes & Noble. It’s hosted, printed, and shipped through a self-publishing service called BookBaby. Books are printed and shipped on demand for each order, so they take a couple of weeks from the time of ordering to the time of receiving the book in the mail. Thanks for your patience! <3

A Sneak Peak Inside:

A few of the recipes you’ll find in the book:

The recipes in this cookbook are written to support Bright Line Eaters and compliant with the female BLE food plans unless otherwise noted (see above). While my content is not officially approved or supported by Bright Line Eatingβ„’, I am an experienced Bright Line Eater and take great care to make sure that my recipes are BLE-compliant and adhere to the quantities prescribed in the BLE food plans.


  1. I got an email indicating there was a 20% discount if ordered prior to 9/27 with coupon code foodfreedom2019. However there was no field to add the coupon code. The order number is SO90804113.
    The customer id number is CT91990238

    • Hi Holli, when you’re on the BookBaby checkout page, you’ll want to checkout as a guest. There’s a place for a coupon code on the same page you put your shipping address and such.

  2. I did check out as a guest and did not see that there. I actually backed out of it and tried again because I didn’t see it. I have already made the purchase. What do I do in this situation?

  3. Trying to order book, but it us not computing my 20% discount..

    • Hmmm. The coupon code spot is on the shopping cart page before you go to checkout. Did you enter the code foodfreedom2019? It all seems to be working fine from my vantage point. Are you using a computer? A few folks have had trouble trying to order using a phone or tablet.

  4. Hello Katie, there is no link that brings us to BookBaby. All links point to or The url is missing at Click HERE to register.

    My Dearest Katie, from the minute I found Katie’s Bright Kitchen -YOU made my BLE journey possible. I started October 2, 2017, have lost all of my excess (45 lbs) weight and kept it off. I’ve ordered all of your cookbooks and just ordered the hard copy of Joyful. I could not have done, nor continue doing, this journey without your delicious, BLE compliant recipes. I also want to thank you for your insightful posts about your journey. I feel like I’m about 2 years behind you. Like you’re a graduate student, and I’m still a sophomore! :)) As a 10, I’ve found my research and experiments rarely serve me. :(! I still need to keep coming back to squeaky clean. I’m hoping as I learn more I might have a little more freedom like I see you do. No matter what ; I LOVE YOUR RECIPES and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for continuing to give us new ideas. With much love and respect, Jenny

    • Aww, what a wonderful message Jenny. Thank YOU so much for your kind words! Your journey is perfect exactly as it is! I hope you love the cookbook as much as I loved making it! <3
