More than just a cookbook, Clean Food is a guide to making healthy choices. Terry Walters teaches readers about the benefits of choosing living plants, not processed food, and eating close to the source — meaning food travels fewer steps to get from where it was grown to your table. She’s passionate about making a commitment to naturally grown foods, not only for ourselves but also for the environment.
With Clean Food, Terry provides a road map to preparing delicious, nourishing meals.The cookbook is organized by season, which makes it easy to choose recipes that feature fruits and vegetables in their prime and readily available — mango salsa for summertime, for instance, or roasted squash with fennel and asparagus for fall. Clean Food also shares year-round recipes, like Terry’s decadent peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. (Most of the recipes are vegan, but you can add a little protein if you want.)
It’s not easy to break the habit of eating processed foods — let’s face it, they’re convenient. Fresh foods can seem harder to find and more daunting to prepare, but Terry makes it easy to enjoy the rewards of better eating.
