The publishers went with another way of thinking, combining the recipes into the following categories:
1. Quick and Easy Meals
2. Budget-Priced Meals
3. Five-Ingredient Meals
4. Seasonal Foods
5. Healthy Snacks
6. Recipes for One or Two People
7. Holiday Meals
8. Delicious Low-Fat Desserts
9. Summer BBQ
Also they provide 4 Weeks of Meal Plans and shopping list, give explanations to basic cooking terms and provide very approximate conversion table.
The index in the end of the book is an extremely big help, since this is a cross reference to all of the recipes and that's how you can see all recipes with, say, beef or squash. Although I just notice that there are no categories in the index for "lentils" or 'Soup", although there are recipes for both of that categories. Some room for improvement there.
In addition to recipes, they have information on whole grains (covering quinoa, couscous, bulgur and teff), tips on how to slash your grocery bill, herb pairing guide (1 page), basic info on fish (how to shop prepare, cook and store - 2 pages), seasonal spices, the guide to flours and quick flour substitution guide (3 pages) and also give ideas for clean snacks on the go. Some step by step instructions are provided (turkey prep guide, for example).
Overall I am happy that I've got the book (and for that price, too!).Read more ›
Clean foods are natural, healthy and delicious - the editors of this cookbook know food that tastes good! Those almond butter cookies ... ddddaaaammmmmnnnn!
For the price of this book on Amazon, it was totally worth it. Most of the ingredients I can find at my local REGULAR grocery store. Some I have to go to another location that has a larger organics department.
I would love to see more pictures. I would gladly pay a little more to see a picture of each dish.
After ordering this book I am also going to renew my long lapsed subscription to the magazine. So for the person who has had this in their basket for a while and can't decide, I think you should purchase it. The recipes are easy to understand and even for a person who isn't a gourmet chef, I think I have done a pretty good job with the help of this book. Go ahead and order it :)
3/19/12- I have been using this cookbook quite a bit and find the recipes easy and tasty. I will admit some of them take more prep time than I normally like to give, but the results are worth it. I can recommend the Lemon Artichoke Chicken and the Turkey Chickpea Burgers.
The chapters are divided by categories, #1: 'Quick and Easy', #2: 'Budget-Priced Meals', #3: 'Five-Ingredient Meals', #4: 'Seasonal Foods', #5: 'Healthy Snacks', #6: 'One or Two People', #7: 'Holiday Meals', #8: 'Low-Fat Desserts', #9: 'Summer BBQ'. It's very inconvenient to browse through because similar foods are scattered throughout the book. For example, you'll find a chicken recipe on the same page as a fish & chips recipe, or a salmon recipe on the same page as pancakes! I don't know about you, but when I'm looking to make a meal, I'm not thinking 'Budget-Priced' or '5-Ingredient'. I'm looking according to the main ingredient. I know I can use the index for that and sometimes I do, but seldom do I get inspiration for a recipe just by the title. I look at the ingredient list for that.
If they ever do a reprint, maybe they will group similar recipes within each chapter. That's all this cookbook really needs.

I am a picky eater, but everything in the book I've tried tastes great and is healthy too. What I like most is that the recipes are light on things like butter and salt. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jason Gorman
