Magical Peach Arugula Salad from Eating Clean
Serves 6 to 8
Here’s a dish that provides a big payoff for very little effort. It takes about five minutes to throw this salad together, and the combination of peppers, peaches, and arugula is simply beautiful. Serve it in a wide bowl to show off its good looks.
In a large bowl, combine the arugula, peaches, bell peppers, and walnuts.
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.
Drizzle the dressing over the arugula mixture, toss, and serve.
- 10 cups arugula
- 5 medium ripe peaches, pitted and diced
- 2 yellow or orange bell peppers, diced
- 1⁄3 cup finely chopped raw walnuts
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
—from the Foreword by MARK HYMAN, MD, nine-time #1 New York Times best-selling author
“I admire and respect Amie’s healthy approach to clean eating and love the recipes and photography in this book! A huge help for people who want to live a healthier lifestyle, but don’t know where to start.”
—GINA HOMOLKA, creator of Skinnytaste.com and New York Times best-selling author of The Skinnytaste Cookbook
“Eating Clean is filled with delicious anti-inflammatory recipes and practical solutions to help reset your body and reclaim your health. Amie has the courage to share her authentic journey from chronic illness to vitality: She’s an inspiration. Her contagious enthusiasm, passion, and glowing energy come through on every page. This book is a must-have in your anti-inflammatory kitchen.”
—FRANK LIPMAN, MD, New York Times best-selling author of The New Health Rules
“In Eating Clean, Amie Valpone nails the simple truth that food is at the heart of our well-being. As someone, much like Amie, who has struggled with conventional treatment of an auto-immune disease, I can attest to the healing power of food. In this age of overly processed food, excessive prescription medication, and so-called quick fixes, it’s so wonderful to hear Amie’s courageous voice inspiring us to return to a cleaner, more natural way of taking control of our health!”
—SEAMUS MULLEN, award-winning chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and wellness advocate
“Everything is changing when it comes to the health of our families. The escalating rates of food allergies, asthma, autism, diabetes, obesity, and cancer are changing how we view food. Eating Clean is a cookbook for a healthy life! With resources, tools, and a strong and gentle hand, it is a valuable resource for those on the road to recovery.”
—ROBYN O'BRIEN, analyst, mother, and author of The Unhealthy Truth
"Persevering through a battery of physicians and restructuring her food intake totally, Valpone achieved complete relief from chronic illness that had dogged and debilitated her for years. Causes of her poor health appeared to center on systemic accumulation of heavy metals and Lyme disease, among other disorders. To blaze a trail back to good health, Valpone successfully cleansed her body of toxins and jettisoned dairy products and gluten. She also rejected processed foods and anything pulled from a can. This sort of diet demands home cooking for virtually every meal. In the process, Valpone became expert at finding foods that met her requirements for both good health and satisfying flavors. She sought out obscure, nonstandard ingredients that promised anti-inflammatory benefits. The hundreds of recipes she advances may repudiate whole classes of edibles, but she is meticulous to keep her cooking flavorful and appealing by including many carefully sourced nuts, seeds, oils, fruits and vegetables."
"While most Western doctors doctors treat symptons, Amie Valpone believes that many diseases can be cured simply altering your diet and eliminating toxins from your environs."

***Edit as of Aug. 2017***
I decided this book was a gateway drug for orthorexia and I never did reference it again. A few months ago I got rid of it.
Be aware that the recipes are heavy on nuts and grains so if you're suffering from autoimmune conditions that require the temporary elimination of these foods to heal, you might want to look for an alternative cleanse that focuses more on high quality proteins and vegetables only i.e. GAPS, SCD or paleo. I try to limit consumption of brown rice based products (rice pastas, wraps, rice flour, etc) due to high arsenic levels and this book does have quite a few recipes that call for these products, however all are easily substituted with things like cauliflower or coconut flour wraps and quinoa or lentil pastas.
I always read a lot of negative reviews on cookbooks that contain "unusual" or "hard to find" ingredients, and to that I would say open your mind, experiment with new ingredients and flavors, and don't be afraid to source ingredients online these days! We do not have to limit ourselves to the ingredients at our local grocery stores, the internet has made it very easy to bring the seemingly endless flavors of the world into our kitchens. If you're looking for a cookbook that only contains inexpensive, easy to find ingredients there are cookbooks that cater to this and shouldn't be hard to find (the Whole 30 cookbook is a good example). But opening our mind up to new ingredients within our budgets is a great way to introduce a wider variety of both flavors and nutrients to our diets. All in all I'm very happy with this purchase and I'm excited to continue cooking.
