Giveaway & Book Review of Clean Slate from the editors of Martha Stewart Living

I’m giving away copies of this book to two lucky readers this week!  The book retails new for $26.  Enter to win at the bottom of the post.
What makes a great cookbook? I’m sure there are about as many answers to that as there are people reading this post. For me a great cookbook is made up of delicious recipes that are easy to recreate and fit well in my family’s eating style. The spark that makes a cookbook great is a personal thing.

This month I reviewed Clean Slate from the editors of Martha Stewart Living. The cookbook was billed as a healthy cooking recipe collection that focused on high protein eating. Most American’s don’t eat enough protein and I have been trying to make sure we are getting plenty in our diet. It just makes me feel better and stay full longer which means I eat less overall. Win – win!

I want to make sure my review is helpful to you so let me be very clear. Clean Slate was not the right fit for our household but it might be perfect for you. We just don’t eat like this and the recipes I tried from the book did not inspire us to shift our eating style in that direction.

This book is perfect for you if:
• You are not feeding children with it or your children are willing to eat unusual health foods.
• You are willing to purchase some higher end specialized kitchen equipment (i.e. a juicer).
• Simple flavor combinations with minimal seasoning appeal to you.
• Learning more about “detox” style eating is on your to do list.
• You care about having a plant based diet.
• The Anti-Inflammatory Diet is useful for you.
• Expensive groceries are not prohibitive in your budget.

We are a household of dedicated carnivores and focus on a balanced eating lifestyle that does not include any focus on the specific eating patterns the book is suggesting.

My hands down favorite thing about the book was the beautiful, engaging photography. This is one of those books you can curl up in bed with or leave on the coffee table for guests to enjoy.

If you want a copy of this book for your very own you can check out the Amazon link below. OR…you can enter to win it from me! The publisher was kind enough to send two beautiful copies to me and I will not be keeping mine so I have two copies to give away to some lucky readers!

    • Goodness – I just looked it up on Amazon and it looks amazing! I’m totally adding that to my wish list. Thank you!

  1. I want to see pretty pictures of food! I am always curious about different types of eating, I pick and choose and try to find something that works for me.

    • The photos really are beautiful! And I think they do a good job of promoting ingredients that are less common.

  2. I’m not sure what my favorite is since I usually just google recipes as I need them, but I love the sounds of this one! I’ve been struggling to adopt a clean eating diet to get fit for summer and my husband likes his food bland so this sounds like just what we need! Thanks for doing the giveaway 🙂

    • I used to be such a cookbook hoarder but in the last few years I keep fewer around. There are just so many great blogs and cooking resources online. This book sounds like a great fit for you both!

  3. I’ve been loving The Vintage Tea Party Cookbook and the other books from the same author. I think it’s important for a cookbook to be visually engaging. I want photos of the finished recipes but it’s nice to have other cute little drawings and diagrams in there as well.
