As a new year begins, many of us think about bettering our health, especially by improving the way we eat. Clean Slate: A Cookbook and Guide: Reset Your Health, Detox Your Body, and Feel Your Best from the editors of Martha Stewart Living seeks to help you do just that. This is simply another great book from Martha! It is a very well organized book with great recipes including Whole-Wheat Waffles with Strawberries and Yogurt, Trail Mix with Toasted Coconut, Grilled Chicken with Cucumber, Radish, and Cherry Tomato Relish and Poached Eggs with Roasted Tomatoes. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to eat right or simply looking for more great recipes to try, this book is a must have. If you are looking to lose weight, my suggestion is The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. I bought it three months ago and was able to lose eight pounds and it stayed off.
I bought this book after watching Shira Bocar on Martha Stewart's website whip up some delicious and nutritious dishes. The recipes are very simple to make. One of them I changed the seasoning on and that was the brown rice and mushrooms in parchment. I added a little bit of gluten free tamari and a drizzle of sesame oil to each of the packets before putting them in the oven. The mixture of the brown rice, mushrooms and that seasoning was really good. I have tried other recipes and liked them just as they are in the book. This is a good way to start eating better and a lot of useful information inside as well.
I love this cookbook. I've been making my way through the recipes and almost all are spot on and delicious! I just had the alpine muesli for breakfast and last night I made the salmon, asparagus and mushrooms in parchment. So good. The recipes are easy and most don't use complicated ingredients. I am OVER counting fat grams and carbs and so far eating from this book I have lost several pounds without trying. I also feel really good
This is a nice cookbook with some good information and recipes, but not really much new. There are your classic juices and smoothies, salads, chicken, roasted veggies, and so forth. Don't get me wrong, there's some good stuff here. It just doesn't feel groundbreaking to me. Overall, the book feels like more effort went into presentation than content. I mean, do we really need an entire page that all it says is, "Golden Rule No. 8 remember to stay hydrated" followed by a page of how good water is for us and how much we should drink along with a little information on other healthy drinks? The book is in two parts; Reset and Recipes. There is some good information in the Reset section along with some that makes you wonder how stupid they think people really are. It ends with a 3-day action plan and a 21-day action plan. From there it moves to recipes. As I stated above, there's a lot of basic recipes you find in most cookbooks of this type (kale chips, anyone?), but there's some good stuff, too. I make what we call "cold oatmeal" and the book calls "Fruit and Almond Alpine Muesli", but I never thought of using yogurt in place of half of the milk. I'll definitely try that next time! I'll probably pass on the Sardines and Cream Cheese on Rye (for breakfast!?!), but I definitely want to try the Cardamom Quinoa Porridge with Pear. Overall, this is a good cookbook. If you have a pile of these already on your shelf, it may not be anything new, but for someone who really wants to start eating better and get healthy, this is a great cookbook for them. I received a copy of this book through Blogging for Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Another health cookbook review for you guys! This is by the editors of Martha Stewart. Read on to find out more! I really liked this cookbook but I don’t think it was the best one I’ve had the opportunity to review. I thought some of the recipes contained ingredients that just wouldn’t be “normal” staples for an average home cook and just the average budget for a family. Also, some recipes were really high in calories and fat when it’s suppose to be a healthy cookbook. Maybe it was just me, I don’t know, but I just wasn’t too crazy about this one. However, there were some recipes that I would like to try and I will try in the near future. Everything about this cookbook isn’t bad but it has flaws. Can we just talk about that cover for a second though. I mean, look at it, it looks delicious. The cover does make you want to look inside the book, they did a really good job at making you curious. The photographs inside the book were also really showcasing and I felt it did show off the food. Don’t get me wrong, all these recipes sound and look deliciously amazing, I just don’t think they fit the theme of this cookbook. Overall, I would recommend this book to people, but I wouldn’t for someone who is trying to lose weight or watch what they eat. If you think you’d like this book then by all means get it and judge it for yourself. I’m just speaking for myself on this review. I wouldn’t rate it 5 stars. That is about all for this book. Thanks for reading! I received this book for free from Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my honest review.
