Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflamma- tion, and Reset Your Body by Amie Valpone, TheHealthyAp- ple.com, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (March 2016), $25
Get ready to eat better, feel better and maybe even look better! How about starting with Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice Cream? Sounds great, doesn’t it? You will find the recipe for the delicious healthy treat in Amie Valpone’s “Eating Clean,” which shelves this spring.
Best known as the founder of TheHealthyApple.com, a site dedicated to detoxing and clean eating based on personal experiences, Valpone’s book is a well-written, easy-to-follow guide with more than 200 recipes.
Following a decade of frustration and suffering from a range of digestive disorders, Val- pone took charge of her body and her life, healing through de- toxing and a clean eating lifestyle. By incorporating processes such as yoga, meditation, herbal medicine and acupuncture, along with a diet of organic, fresh, unprocessed foods, the culinary nutritionist shows others how she now lives symptom free.
In “Eating Clean” you will learn more about Valpone’s work with integrative and functional medicine physicians to address her issues, includ- ing lyme disease, heavy metal accumulation, hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue. In addition to vegetarian recipes that are free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs and refined sugar, you will find a 21-Day Elimination Diet, instructions for food reintroduc- tion, a two-week meal plan and an extensive grocery list.
Whether you are suffering from digestive and inflammation issues or just want to reset your body, Valpone’s suggestions can help you feel better without feeling hungry. Be sure to try that coconut ice cream or learn how to make carrot fettuccine.
