Who will be next to make a CLEAN START?

I’ve just returned from a jam-packed weekend in Austin, Texas! First stop in my Texan adventure was at the Fox Network where I was a guest on Good Day Austin. Thanks to my great food stylist and city tour guide, Johanna, my next stop was at Whole Foods Market’s corporate office where I personally delivered a CLEAN START cookbook to company CEO John Mackey (okay, so this picture shows about how far they let me get, and yes, this is the front lobby!).


Of course, as a cyclist, I had to make a stop at Lance Armstrong’s bike shop, Mellow Johnny’s, but I’ll spare you from those pictures as I realize I’m getting further and further from my point! And finally, I enjoyed the incredible offerings at the Lake Austin Spa and Resort including mouth-watering meals and a deep-tissue massage that I’m sure did me a lot of good and that I’ll appreciate once I am more able to move again!

IMG_1773Most importantly, the real reason for this trip was to teach a CLEAN FOOD/CLEAN START cooking class as part of the Spa’s Culinary Week and what a thrill that was. Special thanks to Tina, my assistant, and Robbie, who invited me in the first place and made sure my stay was fantastic (which it definitely was)! Just walking the grounds of this magnificent resort is a treat, not to mention their incredible organic vegetable and flower garden, and to-die-for teaching kitchen. I’m hoping this won’t be my last visit!


Now that I’m back home again, I’m feeling rested, renewed and recharged! So, in an effort to help you all jump on the CLEAN START bandwagon with me and feel the same way, I’ve decided it’s time for a give away!

The first copies of my new book, CLEAN START, arrived on my doorstep just the other day and it is scheduled to hit the shelves of bookstores around the country starting 11/2. Before they do, I’m going to give away three books! All you need to do to enter is share a comment about how you’re going to make a clean start this fall – no matter where you’re starting from in your journey. Winners will be selected randomly and posted next Tuesday (10/26). Please share this with your friends so we can get as many ideas shared as possible for having a healthy, balanced and inspired clean start!

Eat Clean Live Well!

    You are such an inspiration. I’m looking for healthier breakfast options…that is my next step. Now that we are approaching winter I just need some fresh ideas. I am trying to be gluten free but noticing the breads are not so good for me either. I’m concerned about the yeast and a lot of unnecessary starch so I’m trying to either find a healthy gluten free alternative or just do without bread altogether. I also need to get my child to eat more vegetables! That’s my biggest challenge of all.

    As a fairly new Vegan, and a new, however HUGE fan of Clean Food, I will make a Clean Start by trying at least 3 new recipes every week and by exercising on a regular basis. On the menu today, Kale with Pine Nuts and Currants!

    Trying very hard to eliminate sugar, eat more greens and enjoy nature. Can’t wait to get your new book!

    Luckily my library had a copy of your book, but I had to return it! ugh! I renewed it as many times as I could, but, well, it had to go back. I made some of the salad dressings and would love to try more! Thank you for writing such a wonderful book!

    This fall I plan to make a clean start by cooking at home! I work near a vegan/raw cafe and find I’m always just picking someting up there or at whole foods in the prepared foods section. Well no more! Im going to make the effort to cook at home using fresh whole ingredients!

    Thank you Terry for all the ideas, we are not vegan… but adding a few of the Clean Food recipes a week is an easy transition! Looking forward to CLEAN START! The WF President should have definitely invited you into his office. Maybe next time in Austin! Great work and keep churning out the books and recipes!

    Wow! I got my copy of CLEAN START today, and I am so happy! Everybody, there is a BROWNIE recipe! I hope it is as fantastic as the peanut butter cookies in the previous cookbook! Can you tell I’m excited?
