She also became a published author with the release of Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways To Love Your Body, in 2016.

In her book, Kate shares simple ways to live a healthy and happy life. "Meditation has saved my sanity," Kate says. Meditation is one of the best ways to find balance in everyday hustle. Studies have shown that it helps you lose weight and reduce stress. In the book, she also addresses how our bodies are constantly changing. She suggests finding an exercise you love and commit to it. “Exercise really comes down to moving in a way that makes you feel good,” she explains.

Kate stresses that eating healthy is important but not to overstress if you are at a birthday party and want to have some cake. She also suggests embracing selfishness. That means, focusing on yourself when it's hard to balance work and life. Also, she suggests remembering that situations might be out of control but you can remain calm. Lastly, listen to your body, what does it want to eat or feel.
