Terry Walters’ first book, Clean Food: A Seasonal Guide to Eating Close to the Source with More Than 200 Recipes for a Healthy and Sustainable You, caused a sensation and fueled a nationwide movement about nourishment and clean food that’s been embraced all the way to the White House.
Cooks, foodies, and anyone in search of a healthy and sustainable approach to eating and living well embraced her philosophy: eat minimally processed foods for maximum nutrition. Clean Food taught us the benefits of eating locally grown, seasonal, and fresh.
Now, Clean Start: Inspiring You to Eat Clean and Live Well with 100 New Clean Food Recipes makes it even easier for everyone-from the kitchen novice to the seasoned chef-to eat clean. Clean Start features 100 exciting new recipes for the foods we all need more of, featuring Terry’s signature quick, easy, and delicious preparations. Clean Start inspires you to take the next step no matter where you’re starting.
What sets this book apart are it’s easy to prepare recipes for those seeking to eat real food, not processed, supermarket, WalMart faux food that comes in a box. It also allows you to dip your toe into changing your eating habits thus increasing the odds of success. With knowledge comes change but neither has to happen all at once. This book allows for smaller steps.
We evolved from buying deals at local supermarkets to changing to free range beef, then getting veggie shares from a local organic farm to going “no added sugar, no wheat flour” and that is pretty much were we are now. 100% (well, 98%) organic veggies, free range poultry (and their eggs) and free range beef. The same goes for the garden.
No pesticides and vermiculture (worm castings) is used for the for the soil. What is interesting is that when you get here you’ll see that you are far from the first. There is quite a ground swell, grass-roots movement that has figured out that real food does NOT come in a box. Kraft, Kellogg, and the like should take notice.
