Janet Podleski

Bestselling Author Looneyspoons | Award-Winning Entrepreneur | TV Host Eat, Shrink & Be Merry


How did two sisters with no formal culinary training, no publishing track record, no food industry experience and — most importantly — no money, end up writing and publishing one of Canada’s bestselling cookbooks of all time? Janet Podleski’s captivating (and often hilarious) against-all-odds success story illustrates the power of passion, perseverance, and possibility, even when everyone around you thinks you're absolutely nuts! +

Janet Podleski is the author of four #1 national bestselling cookbooks: Looneyspoons; Crazy Plates; Eat, Shrink & Be Merry; and The Looneyspoons Collection. She’s also known as a co-host of the popular Food Network TV show, Eat, Shrink & Be Merry!, along with her sister, Greta, and together they are the co-creators of a successful line of healthy, prepared foods. Janet is also a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and is currently studying for her Doctorate in Natural Medicine from Quantum University of Integrative Medicine in Honolulu.

Janet and Greta's first cookbook, Looneyspoons (published with the help of David Chilton, of Wealthy Barber and Dragons’ Den fame), became one of the fastest-selling books in Canadian publishing history, with an astonishing 850,000 copies sold. It spent an incredible 85 weeks on the national bestseller list, and eight months at the #1 spot. Not bad, considering the sisters self-published the book out of their basement.

The sisters' inspirational success story has been featured on countless media outlets throughout North America, including on The Today Show, CNN, QVC, Cityline, Canada AM, and in People magazine and Reader’s Digest. Fixtures on many a Canadian kitchen countertop, their books and recipes have been the subject of Trivial Pursuit questions and their famous entrepreneurial story is even studied in university marketing textbooks.

Today, Janet’s on a mission to help people create transformation “from the inside out,” so they can experience their best health and their best lives ever. --

–The Business Centre Nipissing Parry Sound

I thought Janet’s talk was personal, stimulating, inspiring and challenging – she would say one thing and my mind would engage in different thought processes and then, before I could capture the essence of my own thoughts, she would be on to something else equally as thought provoking and interesting. Not many guest speakers can claim that kind of attention from the audience I feel.

–Heart & Stroke Foundation Halifax

Janet proved to be a wonderful keynote speaker for our International Women’s Day event. She delivered a very impactful message with humour and intelligence, appealing to a varied audience. The reviews from attendees were incredibly positive. I can’t wait to have her back!
