After reading my first few posts about the cleanse, the publicist for Clean Start contacted me and asked me to review Terry Walters’ new book. It sounded wonderful from the description she provided, and I thought it would be the perfect book to follow up my Clean cleanse.
It’s fabulous. Really fabulous.
It’s a beautiful cookbook full of recipes that are vegan, gluten free, and pretty darn simple.
Really, this is the perfect book to follow a cleanse, helping me take a short detox and turning it into a new lifestyle. It is also a perfect book for those of you who are not quite ready for a full-on cleanse yet. You know who you are!
The book walks through how to set up your pantry in terms of tools, foods, and spices. It also lists the many personal benefits I’ve listed for moving toward a clean diet, as well as the environmental benefits.
In her own words, Terry Walters writes, “Clean Start is about enjoying healthy, delicious food every day. It’s about having a relationship with food that’s not based on living up to somebody else’s ideal, or following a strict regimen. It’s simply about making healthy choices, one at a time, and doing the best that you can do.”
“Clean food is whole, minimally processed and close to the source for maximum nutrition. This is the food that allows you to live a healthy life, and to accomplish what you want without the limitations that result from compromised nutrition and health.”
Organized by season, the recipes are accompanied by a small personal story as well as great photographs. I just see a lot of you out there really loving this cookbook!
