Photos from the Joyous Health Book Launch

Jan 25, 2014 BY Joy McCarthy

Hello Joyous Readers!

This past week my publisher Penguin Canada hosted a private book launch party for me at Hotel Ocho. It was an evening of celebration, great conversations and gratitude for everyone who supported me along the way. The organic wine was flowing, my popcorn was popping and it was a very joyous vibe all around.

Here are some special photos from the evening and a gallery below.

My friends from Tori's bakeshop -- Tori and Marcella who brought their delicious cupcakes and donuts.

Mmmmm, cupcakes from Tori's Bakshop.

We had all the photos from my book projected on to the brick wall at Hotel Ocho.

My sweet man Walker, my amazing designer of my book Carol and my super-talented photographer!

There were many books for signing!

Michelle, my best friend from grade school and her gorgeous daughter Eleni.

Speech time! My editor from Penguin Canada Andrea.

My joyous thank yous: Andrea, my editor, the entire Penguin team, my food stylist and designer Carol, my photographer Nick, my book agent Rick, my favourite nutrition nerd Kate, my parents and of course, the love of my life Walker. Each and every one of these people made JOYOUS HEALTH a reality!

Pretty PR ladies Patricia and Veronica.

Lots of hugging.

Looks like a swanky party! You have so much to be proud of Joy - I've been slowly working my way through the book over the past week and it's pretty great. You've put a lot into it. And as a fellow nutritionist, I learned a few things here and there too!

Loving your book and all the joyous recipes. I saw your book in the Super Centre in Whitby this weekend, I stood a copy up so it would draw more attention to it :-). You worked very hard on this and those of us who are enjoying the book are truly proud of all your hard work. Cheers

HI Joy - I ordered your book online from Indigo and have really enjoyed your approach and am excited to try some of your lifestyle/eating tips and the recipes. One of the things you mention is a glass of Greens+O daily to start the day - do you recommend the flavoured kind (I think it's acai mango) or the kind with no added flavour for a newbie to daily greens supplementation. I'm just not sure what to expect in terms of taste or whether it can be combined with other foods or just water. Thanks!

Hi Nadine! Either the natural flavour or mango acai are both good. The latter is much sweeter. I prefer the natural in water with a squirt of lemon. If you just want to sample it before purchasing a bottle, you can stop by my office and grab a small sample sachet (assuming you are in Toronto). Just send us an email at hello at joyoushealth.ca when you want to come by!

Hi Rachel! My book comes out in the US in May. You can pre-order the US Kindle version here: http://www.amazon.com/Joyous-Health-Joy-McCarthy-ebook/dp/B00H4H5UO8/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=8-1&qid=1391644237 I'm not sure if you would be able to download the Canadian version.
