Celebrating the new CLEAN FOOD!

More than a cookbook, CLEAN FOOD to me represents a journey like nothing I could have ever imagined. I remember clearly the cooking class in 2003 when someone inquired innocently, “Would you ever consider binding your recipes so that I could purchase them to share with my friends.” To that person and so many others who asked and asked for years until I finally self-published CLEAN FOOD in 2007 I owe thanks.

In 2003, I would never have believed that some day my community would include agents, publishers, editors… Nor would I ever think that words such a bestseller, James Beard Foundation and “award winning” would ever appear in the same conversation as my name. And through it all, I have been most nourished by the connection with you and so many others who share this passion and value what’s good, clean and fair.

While today is the launch of the new revised and expanded edition of CLEAN FOOD – with photographs throughout, variations to make every recipe gluten free, a new section dedicated to clean snacking and 20 new recipes – it is also five years to the day since I launched that very first self-published edition. I have much to be grateful for, and to show my appreciation I’d like to say thank you by giving away two signed copies of the new CLEAN FOOD. Simply comment on how CLEAN FOOD nourishes you, and you’ll be entered into a random drawing. Eligibility is limited to those in the United States. Winners will be announced Friday, October 12th.

Thank you all for your support, your friendship and helping me celebrate this milestone.
Eat clean live well!

    CLEAN FOOD gives me easy, nourishing, and energetic meal ideas and information that keeps me youthful and full of life. I am able to reach my full potential because of the diet that i discovered by reading CLEAN FOOD.

    I often take out my Clean Food cookbook, and flip through the pages licking my lips and saying yummmm!

    I didn’t answer the question about how Clean Food nourishes me, but your book(s) changed the way I approach food. I learned so much about proper preparation of beans and grains in just the first few pages. I’m especially grateful for the recipes for snacks and sweets that are free of white flour and sugar, because experimenting with healthier alternatives can be tricky. Thank you for taking the time to test and retest recipes until you’ve gotten them right. From the red lentil, turnip, and parsley soup to the peanut butter teff cookies, all of your recipes are delicious!

    Congratulations, Terry. Our first edition is dog-eared from use. Looking very forward to the new edition. Very happy for you and wishing you astronomical sales.

    Thank you, Tim! “Astronomical” – now there’s a great word! It should only happen…for us both! And just in case any of you are wondering what Tim writes about… http://timfrick.com/books/
