After leaving Hills Road in 2007 Pippa went to the University of Reading to read History. She then lived and worked in London in public relations, firstly in the food industry and then for the Department of Education.
Following surgery for a double lung transplant in April 2017 Pippa now needs to take medication for the rest of her life. Pippa's diet is therefore limited by immune suppression, which means that she is unable to eat rare meat, blue cheese, runny eggs and unpasteurised or live products to name but a few.
She decided to compile a recipe book called 'Now What Can I Eat?' The book will contain recipes suitable for people suffering from immune suppression and many of the recipes are being donated by well known chefs, restaurants and foodies, including Tessa Ward, Alice Living and Lili Vanilli.
However, the book will not just be aimed at people who have had transplants. The dietary limitations are the same for people undergoing certain types of chemo and for those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s Disease or any other auto immune conditions. The book could help thousands of people as well as their friends and families providing healthy recipes to suit their condition.
Pippa is looking to raise funds for her book to be published as none of the large publishers have shown an interest. She has set up a Kickstarter donation page and has until 20th May to achieve the total funds required. If you are interested and would like to make a donation, please go to her fundraising page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/nowwhatcanieat/now-what-can-i-eat-the-book
where you will find a variety of pledge options available. Should you wish you can also find more information in various news articles online but please do get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.
Pippa would not ask if she didn't believe that this book will really help thousands of people. Thank you in advance.
