Blog tour: ‘Crave, Eat, Heal’

Annie Oliverio and Cedar Fort Publishing & Media are pleased to announce the release of “Crave, Eat, Heal” blog tour, which will run from April 6-May 31, 2015.

If you’re interested in participating in this blog tour, please email us or leave a comment below.

About the book:

After struggling for many years with a raging sweet tooth and emotionally-driven cravings, author Annie Oliverio began the journey back to a healthy, balanced palate. This is a cookbook focused on plant-based foods that protect, nourish, and heal – yet satisfy “cravings” that can easily trip one up when striving to eat healthier foods or when feeling lonely, stressed or in the need of comfort.


About the author, in her own words:

If there is an unnamed, undiagnosed condition where one suffers from planning, thinking about, and anticipating future breakfasts, lunches, and dinners while eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner, then I have it. And I don’t want to be cured. But I wouldn’t be opposed to having this ailment named after me.

I was fortunate to be raised in a home with two excellent cooks: my mom and dad. Mom covered the basics of breakfasts, lunches in brown paper bags, and a square meal at night. She also covered Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. Dad took over on Christmas Eve or whenever an ingredientbe it a stinky cheese or olives or eggplant or artichokes or polentacaught his fancy. Sauce splatters and piles of pots and pans in the sink were guaranteed. Between mom and dad, my three siblings and I ate eclectically and well.

My own culinary journey got off to a rocky start when I began living on my own post-college. I went for convenience and speed (and sugary, fatty, salty) rather than quality. Slowly, however, I began buying more fresh and whole foods to make my own meals. At the same time, I was learning about what foods are best for our bodies. Long story short, my plodding and indirect journey led me to plant-based eating. I no longer rely on packaged, frozen, or prepared meals, and instead make everything we need right here in our own kitchen.

What about the non-food part of my life? Before escaping the mean city streets for the wild, windy plains of Oklahoma, I was an administrative assistant and office manager at a subscription fulfillment company in Boulder, at a think-tank in Santa Monica, at a university in Cambridge, MA, in the Green Zone in Baghdad, and at a non-profit in Washington, D.C.

I now spend a good deal of time walking the pastures trying to identify different types of grasses and insects, feeding hummingbirds, writing and reading, struggling to solve crossword puzzles (with a pen and a lot of Wite-Out), and blogging at An Unrefined Vegan and Virtual Vegan Potluck. I live in blissful satellite- and cable-free isolation with my husband, Kel, and our only son, Ike (part dachshund, part Labrador).

    The 11th would work great for me.

    • March 10, 2015 at 6:48 am

      Yes. I have you for the 11th of April.

  • March 8, 2015 at 9:13 am

    I would love to do this on May 23. Thanks!

  • March 8, 2015 at 1:57 pm

    I’d like to take May 1st. Please mail a copy to me. Thanks!

    • March 10, 2015 at 5:37 am

      Hi Melanie, we put you for the first. Thanks.

  • March 9, 2015 at 6:15 am

    I would love to review this book! It looks WONDERFUL! I can do any day. Please send a hard copy! Thank you!

    • March 10, 2015 at 5:19 am

      Great Mindy! I have added you on for May 5th. Thanks!

  • March 9, 2015 at 6:28 am

    Lots of new participants have been added – please update :-)! Thanks!

    • March 10, 2015 at 4:52 am

      Got it! Thanks Annie.

    • March 15, 2015 at 4:14 am

      Thanks Tressa. I have you down for the 25th of April.

  • March 15, 2015 at 10:08 am

    FYI Eternal Principles Simplified is now posting on April 24 and Mel’s Shelves is now posting on May 22.

    Please note that Mason Canyon had already chosen April 28 to post. Can we move Thoughts in Process to another day? I’d rather not double up posts during the tour since there are still so many open dates.


    • March 16, 2015 at 3:25 am

      Hi Annie,

      I have updated Eternal Principles Simplified and Mel’s Shelves to the new dates. Do these reviewers already know these are their new dates?

      Also, the URL for Thoughts in Process is — so I am guessing this is Mason Canyon’s blog. When you visit the URL the title says Thoughts in Progress, does the name listed on the blog tour page need to be updated to Mason Canyon?

  • March 24, 2015 at 5:28 am

    Yes, Eternal Principles & Mel’s Shelves have their updated dates.

    I guess let’s go w/ Thoughts in Process. I had it on my list as Mason Canyon, but you’re right – the title at the top is different. Thanks for pointing that out.

  • March 24, 2015 at 5:29 am

    Oh – and I’ve added some more blogs 🙂

  • March 27, 2015 at 1:35 pm

    Just added another blog for May 24 :-). Also, I just noticed that the intro still has the old dates of the tour. Please update to say April 6-May 31. Thanks!

    • March 27, 2015 at 1:46 pm

      Hi Annie! Thanks for the heads up. I have update the blog tour to reflect these changes and have sent the new blogger a digital review copy in the mean time.

  • March 29, 2015 at 5:11 pm

    I heard from one of the bloggers participating in the book tour that some of the links do not work. Also, can you correct “Cow Girls” to “Cowgirls” on the May 24 date? Thanks!

    • March 30, 2015 at 11:56 am

      Hi Annie. With the links I actually noticed that same thing this morning. WordPress has generally automatically inserted teh “http://” preface to any URLs, but for some reason a portion of the links were missing the http portion of their address. I have updated them so they all have the full address listed, and I have manually checked all the sites to make sure they link out correctly.

      As well, I updated “Cowgirls” to be one work.

      Got it Annie. Thanks.

  • April 22, 2015 at 5:07 am

    I’d love to review the cookbook and join the blog tour. Please let me know if it is too late. 🙂
