Are you new to clean eating and wondering what to eat? Or, are you feeling like you’re in a healthy food rut? I’m so delighted to offer a solution to both of these problems! Today I’m announcing my very first professionally designed e-book, Clean Eating Every Day. The book includes 55 gluten-free and dairy-free recipes using all real food ingredients.
All of the recipes in Clean Eating Every Day use seasonal but widely available ingredients. Here are a few recipes from the book that are perfect for any time of year (clockwise, from top left: California Style Vegan Sushi Rolls, Sriracha Cauliflower Fried Rice, Ropa Vieja, Pan Seared Salmon with Macadamia Pesto, Quinoa Crust Veggie Pizza, and Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins).
As mentioned, each of the 55 recipes is listed as paleo or vegan, and all are gluten-free and dairy-free. I included recipe recommendations based on each season. The book is also organized into the traditional cookbook categories, including:
- Main Dishes
- Soups & Stews
What is clean eating anyway? It’s actually not as restrictive as you might think. Clean eating means choosing as broad of a variety of real foods that work for you! This includes fruits, vegetables, beans, meats, fish, and whole grains. I did choose to make this book all gluten-free and dairy-free, so many of the recipes are either paleo or vegan-friendly. In addition to all the great recipes, Clean Eating Every Day has sections for describing a clean eating diet, recommended pantry items, other resources. You can download it as a PDF and enjoy it at your leisure. Print it all or just the recipe pages that call to you.
I wrote more about my clean eating journey in the introduction of the book, too. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I’ve been on quite the health journey. If only I had known how close a role my food choices affected my health over the years, I would have saved so much pain and suffering. I spent most of my adolescence and young adulthood living with hormonal imbalance (PCOS), acne, and a poor self-image. For too many years, I looked in the mirror and hated what I saw. It sounds harsh, and it was. I didn’t have a menstrual cycle, I had horrible acne, and later I had chronic migraines and debilitating anxiety. The worst part was that I had no idea that the answer to almost all my problems wasn’t in a pill or unfixable because I was broken, but simply was in the food I ate.
But, thank goodness, I consider myself healthy now with a much more positive and loving mindset. And, I know enough to fuel myself with real food as often as possible. I’ve let go of unnecessary food restrictions while respecting my specific sensitivities. By eating whole foods most of the time, my cravings have disappeared, my weight has normalized, and I go about my daily life without an unhealthy focus on food.
That said, I love to eat and I love to find ways to make healthy food taste good! That’s one reason why I’m a food blogger, so I can be part of the amazing virtual community of other people who want to eat well and feel well. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to create and share this book, and hopefully to be part of the solution.
The majority of the recipes in Clean Eating Every Day come from me, but I also rounded-up some of my amazing food blogger friends to share their favorite healthy recipes (not to mention the cover beautifully drawn and hand-painted by one of my best friends, Shoshannah).
