Review

"With everything from easy, fast recipes for the kitchen newbie to complex recipes for the advanced healthy gourmet, The Naked Foods Cookbook has something for everyone who prioritizes health and still wants to eat delicious food."
—Mike Dow, PsyD, author of Diet Rehab: 28 Days to Finally Stop Craving the Foods That Make You Fat



"The Naked Foods Cookbook is filled with delicious recipes and creative ideas for how to take charge of your health in your own kitchen. It’s mandatory reading for all of my patients. Healthy, conscious eating never tasted so good!"
—W. Michael Carragher III, DO, medical director and founder of The Body Well in Los Angeles, CA



"James Barry and Margaret Floyd have forever altered what happens in our kitchen, as well as our eating choices when we dine outside the home. Their recipes are both delicious and nutritious and offer novel and unique flavors for the senses. The information and recipes in The Naked Foods Cookbook have helped eliminate years of mild gastritis and acid reflux. Thus, I no longer have the need for antacids and blockers. My ten-year-old daughter loves the food and always asks that we prepare more kale chips! She also eats delicious vegetables at every meal."
—Ashton Smith, voice-over artist



"I’ve been eating these meals for the last few months and I love them. I’ve lost weight, I feel lighter, I have more energy, and I feel better overall. Who knew eating well could actually taste this good?!"
—Glenn Howerton, actor/writer/producer



"I cannot say enough about the positive changes that have come my way since switching over to the naked lifestyle. My meals are fresh and delicious and I know I am only putting the healthiest and purest foods into my body. Not only do I feel amazing, but I was also able to lose all the baby weight I gained after the birth of my second child. I see no reason to eat over-processed food when there is a simple way to feed myself and my family nourishing meals."
—Kerry Armstrong, busy mother and producer of The Moth StorySLAMS



"Life-changing in terms of my health and fitness, this book has shown me how healthy eating can positively affect my quality of life. I have never had a healthier or more positive relationship with my body! I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy, delicious, unprocessed way of eating that ensures higher energy and constant satisfaction."
—Jeanine Mason, dancer and actress

Format: Paperback
If your primary concern in your kitchen is nutrition using organic and unprocessed ingredients, The Naked Foods Cookbook fits the bill very well. Written by a nutritional therapist and a chef, their emphasis is invariable obtaining the best nutritional value. The cookbook is not vegetarian or vegan though many of the recipes are. Yet the authors, Floyd and Barry, also stress flavor.||The 33-page introduction provides everything you need to know on the "naked food" principle; how food is grown, processed and prepared, your kitchen equipment and appliances ("Naked Fridge"), your pantry ("Naked Spice Rack") and cooking techniques. The recipes are good and most not hard to prepare but a good health food store in your neighborhood is essential. Even so, some ingredients will be difficult to find (young green coconut, umeboshi paste). The authors emphasize scratch cooking, making your own butter, buttermilk, mayonnaise, cream cheese, and so on. They designate each recipe as In a Rush, Everyday or Impress Your Neighbors, also whether vegan, vegetarian, pescatorian or omnivore. Unfortunately, errors slipped in here and there (wrong referred page numbers). This cookbook was inexpensively produced with occasional black-and-white illustrations. Well cross-referenced index is excellent. (As reviewed for Sacramento/San Francisco Book Review.)

I purchased the kindle edition of this cookbook. I love the content, the first chapters were very informative in regards to preparing yourself and your kitchen to go naked. My only reservation thus far are the multitudes of typos in the recipes. For instance, the recipe for Quinoa says to use 1 cup quinoa and 12 cups water. I don't believe that is correct. Hopefully they will fix the typos before more people attempt the recipes.

I've been working at Eating Naked since January, and have lost 27 pounds (even with a few detours). I've been anxiously awaiting the new cookbook. I made the peanut butter cookie recipe last night and it was awesome! I love peanut butter cookies, and this gluten-free recipe was one of the best I've tasted. And it has the added benefit of actually providing nutrition while being a great occasional snack. Took one to my trainer and he was also SOLD!

But one of my favorite chapters is about what a Naked kitchen looks like. What is in the fridge, what is in the pantry, how to store things. Even what to cook with (not a microwave!). Trash day is next Tuesday and I'm hoping to purge another layer of non-Naked foods. It's a process, but Eating Naked is a sustainable way to eat and I'm getting better every week. Soon, I'll be soaking my raw nuts....

I never thought I'd buy sorghum or gorgonzola flour or ghee. But thanks to this cookbook, I understand what these foods are and how to use them. I am embracing the journey. Can't wait to try the marinara sauce, the chocolate chip cookie and the caesar dressing. Everything is gluten-free, which a family member requires.

Can't say enough great things about the book!

I was first "met" Margaret Floyd while following a recipe trail via several food blogs: I landed on EatNakedNow the day after she posted a video clip on how to crack open a young Thai coconut. I had recently seen the white shrink-wrapped white things whilst roaming the produce section at my local New Seasons market (I was looking for fresh dates, if you must know, for a sugar-free-raw-vegan-ice-cream) and I stood in front of them for a while, wondering what the slightly unearthly things were. Call it Jungian synchronicity that I stumbled upon her wonderful site about 24 hours later.

That post was my first introduction to Margaret Floyd's writing, and two lines from that one post, since then, have stuck in my head, resonating like a kind of mantra. I found myself reciting the first one aloud the other day while stuck in traffic to one of my friends: "Those tetra packs of coconut water that are all the rage don't hold a candle to fresh coconut water straight from the source." Having consumed a lot of those tetra packs this summer to stay hydrated, now that I have switched to fresh, I keep marveling at this simple truth, expressed so eloquently. The second line I recite to myself every time I open a coconut (which is at least three times a week now): something along the lines of how opening a coconut is "no gentle act," and if she can do it-- well, I (you!) can too! Cracking open a coconut DOES take courage-- it took me about a week to work up the nerve. I credit Margaret Floyd for giving me the gentle push I needed.

I get crushes on artists (witness my obsession with Richard Brautigan in graduate school.

I think it is good in the basics but should be more well rounded with other types of recipes in it. I do like the ability to now make my own fermented foods.

The Naked Food Cookbook has a new place on go-to shelf for handy choices. Not only is the cover friendly (my counter wasn't clean) which is easy to wipe off and stain resistant -- the recipes were a great mix of things I have tried, and those I have not. It is packed with information about healthy methods of cooking and how to make your own ingredients like ghee, coconut butter, salad dressings! I'm about to clear the cookbook shelf of those that have processed foods as an ingredient and fill the empty space with ingredients for Naked Eating! Mrs. "Game Gary" / Cyndi
