What sets this book apart are it's easy to prepare recipes for those seeking to eat real food, not processed, supermarket, WalMart faux food that comes in a box. It also allows you to dip your toe into changing your eating habits thus increasing the odds of success. With knowledge comes change but neither has to happen all at once. This book allows for smaller steps.
We evolved from buying deals at local supermarkets to changing to free range beef, then getting veggie shares from a local organic farm to going "no added sugar, no wheat flour" and that is pretty much were we are now. 100% (well, 98%) organic veggies, free range poultry (and their eggs) and free range beef. The same goes for the garden. No pesticides and vermiculture (worm castings) is used for the for the soil. What is interesting is that when you get here you'll see that you are far from the first. There is quite a ground swell, grass-roots movement that has figured out that real food does NOT come in a box. Kraft, Kellogg, and the like should take notice.

Net result for us.....lost weight, we don't diet, we feel cleaner and stronger and real food, locally grown, organically grown tastes so much better.

I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about real change.

Clean Start is the second most beautiful cookbook on my bookshelf, second only to Clean Food, Terry's first cookbook. For those new to clean eating, this truly is a great start. Terry Walters starts with the basics of what clean eating is and why you should chose clean eating. Then, she goes into the perfect amount of detail on what items to stock and why. Everything about this book is logical and easy to understand, rationalize, and follow. She includes gorgeous pictures and tasty recipes, organized by season. I love that every recipe is extremely health-conscious. If it's in this book, it's good for you. End of story. You won't regret this purchase!

I actually checked this out from the library and after checking out a few recipes bought it from amazon. I was surprised at the $12.99 price from Amazon for a good hardcover version.

Walters spends a few pages in the beginning explaining some of the benefits of a plant based diet as well as including some helpful tips for stocking a nice vegan friendly pantry. If you have been vegan for longer than a few months, much of this is basic. If you are someone interested in moving towards a plant based diet, then this section is full of great information.

The recipes are all vegan and gluten free. They are not all intended for the 'Clean Program' so don't mix the titles up. The Clean program doesn't allow nightshades (tomatoes, eggplant, cashew) but it is a completely different program. Walters uses 'clean' to indicate farm fresh, organic, and whole foods without animal product or gluten. Just wanted to point that out in case you are on the Clean Program and thought this might contain recipes allowed while on the program (some recipes in this book may be used, others can't).

The recipes are brilliantly sorted by season. Not only does this mean that the recipes are geared towards a particular weather (warmer and heartier dishes in winter, cooler and lighter dishes for summer), but this is also great because of what produce is in season. Currently I have four go to cookbooks and one amazing online blog that will soon become a cookbook:

I've loved everything I've made from this book. I have a lot of food sensitivities and miraculously this book avoids almost all the foods that I avoid!!!! It's like she made the cookbook just for me! She avoids gluten, soy, eggs, dairy, etc. I'm not sure if that is 100% true for all the recipes, but so far I've not come across a recipe that I wanted to make that I couldn't because of the ingredient list. Additionally, she is so approachable in her writing style. She seems to give exactly the right information you need and nothing more, I find it very informative and empowering. I also like the way the book is set up in the beginning. I took it with me to whole foods - bought everything she said you needed for the pantry - which was great, because from then on I've been stocked and can cook from this book freely - although I think only one recipe calls for amaranth - so maybe that didn't need to be listed as a "staple"

I can't get enough of the banana date cake - made with almond flour and chick pea flour! amazing, packed with protien and so good for you - another fave is the red lentil soup and the minestrone soup - I've gotten to the point that I make these items in giant batches and still manage to eat them so fast I don't have enough to freeze!

If you're looking for a truly simple, delicious approach to eating HEALTHFULLY - without a lot of preaching or yucky substitutions for GF ideas, you will LOVE this book!
