It has great and easy clean recipes.

It's a perfect guide if you are just getting started with the clean eating lifestyle or if you just need new recipe ideas.

The recipes are great and I like the fact that the majority of them have pictures of the finished product.

Being a subscriber to Clean Eating magazine and having all their back issues, I was looking forward to getting the book, thinking that it will be much easier to find the recipes, and that the recipes will be organized in a categories either by ingredient (i.e. poultry, meat, fish, grains, salads) or by course (appetizers, salads, second course, soups).

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!).

This book is written well, nice photos and so far every recipe I have tried has tasted great. My only issue with this book is that in some recipes it calls for things like '98% Fat Free canned condensed soup'. This is not clean eating. These soups contain MSG, sugar and many other ingredients that should not be included in a cleaning eating recipe book.

I am so happy Clean Eating magazine came out with this cookbook - now all of my favorite recipes are in one place! I lost 50 pounds in two years by eating this way and I've never been happier! I am NEVER going back to my old way of eating again.

Clean foods are natural, healthy and delicious - the editors of this cookbook know food that tastes good! Those almond butter cookies ... ddddaaaammmmmnnnn!

I have made several of the recipes in this cookbook and have enjoyed all of them. For that reason I would give it 5 Stars. The one thing I don't care for is the way it's organized, for which I would give it 1 Star. (Hence my average of 3 Stars).
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.

Although this book DOES have some wonderful recipes, the ingredients many of them call for are so difficult to find (only at specialty stores), or so dang expensive, making them requires a massive search about town and a home equity loan to pay for it all. Please keep in mind that a number of these recipes are NOT low cal...this isn't a DIET cookbook...it is a cookbook for a major lifestyle change (although weight loss CAN be an added plus). I'm keeping the book because there are some recipes in there i like, but for the most part, i can't afford to eat like this.

So far from this cookbook I have made 2 meals. However, I am also a user of the Tosca Reno cookbooks. Compared to those, this one has many more easy to find ingredients. (not that she doesn't have great recipes also).

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.
