I am so glad there's now a cookbook for anyone who wants to eat "clean". After I read Tosca Reno's first book I felt like clean-eating made so much sense, but I was a little panicked, thinking, "Ok, but what CAN I eat??". I've tried lots of recipes in this book, and they have all been good and the plan is simple:
Eat 5-6 small meals daily, every 2-3 hours. Combine lean protein and complex carbs in each meal. Drink a minimum of 2 liters/8cups of water daily. Don't skip meals, especially breakfast. Carry a cooler loaded with Clean-Eating foods for the day. Avoid all over-processed, refined foods (white sugar, white flour), all trans and saturated fats, alcohol, calorie-dense foods with no nutritional value, sodas, colas, and juices. Eat fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Eat proper sized portions.
I hope she writes another book with another batch of them! My wife and I have been eating clean for almost a month now, and we feel so much better, our clothes fit better, and we've each dropped a few pounds. Eating this way is very time-consuming, but so worth the effort!
