why EAT IT ?

I’m creating EAT IT because it’s been over a decade of growing hot for food into a brand and community and I want to grow. Plus I really want to get back to what I love… creating and photographing recipes! I want to spend time in my kitchen dreaming up the best of the best and that means I can’t churn out weekly videos all year long. With themed, curated and well-thought out quarterly recipe releases I can really hone in on my talents and give you my best work. 

The most valuable way to get on board and support this endeavour is to subscribe annually ($10.46 in savings) and eliminate hot for food FOMO entirely! With the annual subscription you’ll get access to livestream events throughout the year and be added to my close friends group on Instagram. This way you can see behind-the-scenes of making the recipes you’re getting and be involved in shaping EAT IT.

Annual subscribers will get plenty more perks too and I imagine I’ll likely dream up some extra stuff to give you as this project evolves. The annual subscription is the whole buffet, for those who want it ALL! You’ll also be able to buy single serving collections as they’re released too, but you’ll miss being part of this growing community of hot for foodies. Either way, this is going to be one heck of a tasty ride!


EAT IT reviews!

I am super pumped to be a part of Lauren’s next venture! I’ve followed hot for food since 2015, and I love everything that Lauren does. So far EAT IT has introduced me to her Pickle Cheddar Biscuits and an awesome giveaway plus several other recipes I wanna try. Can’t wait for the live hangout and behind the scenes on Instagram! It’s important to support your favorite creators, and I think what Lauren is doing is gonna change the game.

I have all your books and have loved every recipe I have made so it makes perfect sense to subscribe to Eat It!

The hot for food blog/YouTube channel has been a staple in my kitchen since I went vegan 6 years ago. When the Eat It membership was announced, I knew it would be just as amazing! Lauren’s recipes on this new platform are delicious, comforting, easy to make and perfect to share.
happy member
the hot for food blog helped me go vegan nearly 8 years ago! Lauren and all of her recipes are simply amazing and never fail to satisfy. Her videos encouraged me to get creative in the kitchen and made me fall in love with cooking. Join her members site, it is so so worth it!
