The Art of Thanks
“Clean Food has been my go-to source for recipes ever since I received the book almost three years ago.” Holly the Healthyeverythingtarian
Emailed comments like the one above make me take pause and give thanks for the opportunity to do this work, and for the inspiration and nourishment that comes from this amazing clean food community. With Thanksgiving just days away, I thank each and every one of you for sharing this journey with me and for making my life so rich as a result.
Just a few days ago, I nearly fell off my chair when Holly (the Healthyeverythingtarian) posted this picture on Twitter. I can’t thank her enough for allowing me to share it and her clean food story here on my blog.
“When my graphic design teacher assigned our class the task of remaking a cookbook cover in an artistic and unusual way, I knew immediately I wanted to use Clean Food. Because Clean Food is such a great source of natural, from-the-earth foods, I wanted to incorporate that organic feel in the book cover and decided to cover the jacket in a variety of grains and seeds. Using a mixture of red quinoa, millet and flaxseed, I hand-designed the Clean Food type in a classic, script font and added flourishes of faux grain on the actual cover. I added a bookmark made from a clip that’s covered in flaxseeds and faux grain – it also keeps the book open quite nicely!”
“My journey to clean eating has been exactly that – a journey. As a healthy food blogger, freelance writer and soon-to-be-graphic designer, I find myself drawn to food in many different ways. Eating cleanly and healthily is an ever-progressing journey that has given me the energy and fuel to enjoy and appreciate life each and every day. Clean Food has been a part of that, so in many ways, this book cover is a thank you for that.”
Thank you Holly and all for giving me so much to be grateful for. I hope you’ll share what you’re thankful for this holiday season, too. All who do will be entered for a chance to win a copy of the newly revised CLEAN FOOD! Winners will be announced December 4th. Until then, may this Thanksgiving find you blessed with good friends, good health and delicious clean food.
Eat clean live well!
