Book Review: Eat Clean Cookbook

Initial Thoughts:

Photos:  Beautiful photography throughout the book.

Recipes:  The recipes use a lot of ingredients that I don't typically cook with such as kefir, flaxseeds, Sucanat, rapadura sugar, wheat germ, spelt, kamut, etc.

The Eat Clean Cookbook by Tosca Reno is full of healthy recipes.  I'm more of a fan of moderation rather than completely changing the recipes and ingredients, but maybe that will change when I have children.  My friend Kitty does cook with these types of ingredients and loves it.  Some of the recipes that sounded really good were the eat clean egg strata and the pear and black walnut salad with fig vinegar.  I would even use the J.D. Gourmet Fig Balsamic Vinegar for the dressing.  There are also some cool sections about things like coconuts where Tosca explains why they are healthy and gives tips to use them.  If you are into healthy cooking, this book would be a great choice.  Perfect for a holiday gift.
