BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Clean Food: A Seasonal Guide to Eating Close to the Source with More Than 200 Recipes for a Healthy and Sustainable You is a mostly vegan cookbook that provides a simple approach to healthier cooking. Containing more than 230 recipes, Clean Food allows you to prepare amazing foods using local, seasonal ingredients.

The cookbook categorizes recipes by spring, summer, fall and winter so that you are aware of which produce is available during certain times of the year. Clean Food does focus mostly on using unprocessed foods, but takes an occasional shortcut using prepared ingredients to save time.

This book includes menu items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert. Some of the prominent ingredients used in the various recipes include whole grains, vegetables, legumes, sea vegetables, nuts and seeds. Clean Food includes an anytime section along with the seasonal sections so you’ll always have something convenient to cook no matter what time of year it is.

Clean Food is authored by Terry Walters who is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor.
