Celebrating with a Giveaway!

After months of putting my heart on the page, making like the Muppets Swedish Chef in the kitchen, and sharing one screen for hours, days and weeks on-end with designers and editors, it was completely unexpected that the arrival of my new book would take my breath away and reduce me to a puddle of tears.


EAT CLEAN LIVE WELL will launch in just one week, but already I can barely put this book down. Every time I pick it up I feel drawn to hold it next to my heart – perhaps because it just feels so good, or perhaps because this book comes directly from my heart, reflecting my passions for healthy living and delicious nourishing food.

There are more than 175 recipes in Eat Clean Live Well and I hope you’ll soon come to agree with me that each one is a winner! In this book you’ll find year-round inspiration and recipes for a bounty of seasonal produce, vegan and gluten-free baked goods that will satisfy your every craving, healthful cooking techniques that will have you sprouting and fermenting with ease, and seasonal lifestyle tips that will leave you feeling connected to your community and environment.

But most importantly, it’s time to get this book into your hands, and what better day to launch a giveaway than today, National Food Day. To be entered into this random drawing, simply share a comment about eating clean and living well. Then, on November 1st, in conjunction with the book’s official launch, I’ll announce three winners who will each receive their own signed copy of EAT CLEAN LIVE WELL! Winners must live in the continental United States, but all are encouraged to join the conversation.

Until November 1…

Eat clean live well!

    I believe that cooking our own food its the first step to a better life. I am trying to educate my family about making healthy choices one at the time. Eating what its on season its not only healthy for your body but for your finances as well. You inspire us

    Clean Food is what launched me into much healthier eating- I use so much of what I learned from that cookbook in my everyday cooking now. We are not exclusively vegan, but choose to eat vegan most of the time. Many of the recipes and ingredients from Clean Food and Clean Start are regulars in our family. Your books introduced me things like kombu and adzuki beans and to cooking dried beans from scratch instead of using canned. I look forward to the new book and what new things I will try next!

    I started changing the way I eat after being diagnosed with a rare cancer at a young age. I didn’t have a terrible diet, but there was so much I didn’t know. Terry’s cookbooks and classes have taught me I can have a wide range of tasty foods that are nourishing and healing.

    Terry makes eating healthy and clean so much fun!

    I have been vegan for over 15 years now but that did not always mean making healthy choices. I got into the junk food rut even when I couldn’t buy more than french fries at a lot of restaurants. The last few years have been a huge difference, and the two things that have kept me eating clean and healthy are 1) inspiring cookbooks! and 2) joining a local CSA. With a fridge full of great produce and recipes I just can’t wait to try, it’s a winning combination, and has made me feel so much happier and healthier.

    Yesterday, my new doctor recommended an elimination diet. As I am desperately trying to get my brain around this, she also gave me your name and suggested your cookbooks. After looking around, I am more hopeful that I can do this. Thank you for that!

    Eating clean is an important component to living well. Creating meals that are nourishing and delicious for myself and my husband helps to achieve that goal. Thanks Terry for creating another book that I am sure will be informative and inspiring in our quest for sustained health. Happy day to everyone!

    Eating in a way that nourishes my mind and body gives me such joy. Your first two books are always on my kitchen counter. I don’t even bother putting them away since I use them so much! Thanks for your passion and commitment.

    My school’s environmental studie theme is defined by nature, health and quality of life. Terry Walters’ work inspires and connects us to this educational goal.

    I have heard so many great things about your books and am now hoping to get them all! Thank you.

    A big fan!!! Congrats on the book. I feel so much better when I eat clean. I find eating clean at breakfast and lunch pretty easy especially when eating at home (or bringing lunch). By doing this I feel better even if I might not eat that clean for dinner etc. Starting off much of the day with good food choices really helps.

    i feel so much better when eating clean but often run out of new cooking ideas.

    It’s important that we teach our kids to skip the fast food and learn how to cook at home.

  14. Posted October 25, 2014 at 4:13 pm | Permalink

    I am always looking for new recipes since I have a very limited diet (food intolerances). I hope this cookbook helps me do just that! 🙂

  15. Posted October 25, 2014 at 7:08 pm | Permalink

    Terry…this is the best cook book ever! Not only are the recipes fantastic, the photographs are scrumptious as well. Wishing you a wonderful launch! Xxx

    First let me say how super excited I am for you. Congrats, congrats, congrats!!

    You have over the years really taught me how to “eat clean” and I cannot wait to continue my journey with your newest book!

    I thank you, my family thanks you and soon all that will read and become inspired by your new book will thank you. Keep doing what you love to do, as it truly shows how much you believe in eating clean and living well!

    Love to eat locally and seasonally and clean! Sending healthy wishes for your book success!

  18. Posted October 27, 2014 at 5:18 am | Permalink

    I try very hard to make sure we are eating clean and healthy foods. I like buying fresh as often as possible and I’m always trying to find new and exciting ways to prepare the food!

  19. Posted October 27, 2014 at 1:29 pm | Permalink

    The single most important thing anyone can do to improve and maintain their health is to learn to cook. By preparing your own food, you know exactly what you are eating. If you can read, you can cook!

    Years ago when I was living in Germany, one of my German hosts said that they wanted to eat something “fresh”. I didn’t know what they were talking about, as my diet consisted of a jar of peanut butter and a can of beets. YUCK!! I have a lot still to learn, and hope that your book will keep me away from that Hallowe’en candy!

    Enjoyed your talk this evening and I am looking forward to making a few of the recipes in your latest book.

    Loads of fresh veggies, swimming, yoga, nature and healthy relationships keep me feeling GREAT!!!

    Hi Terry –
    I was catching the train in New Haven this morning and as I entered the station I saw your beautiful smile on the cover of Women X change magazine Fall/Winter2014. Congrats on a great interview article and of course the new cook book. Cant wait to see it! Valerie

  24. Posted October 30, 2014 at 6:26 pm | Permalink

    It so refreshing to read a book that is inspiring cooks everywhere to prepare food that is good for all of us to eat. Terry’s cookbooks make me want to go get that vegetable that I never tried before(daikon, arame)and learn how to cook with it and the reap all the health benefits.
    My son was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 4 years ago.
    Dietary changes have been the main focus of controlling his flare ups. I am always looking for recipes that I can prepare and keep mealtime exciting. A little more time in the kitchen preparing good, real food has been the best for his health as well as our own. Thank You for recipes that get me excited about spending that time in the kitchen when I fall into my old grind. I can’t wait to get cookin’recipes from Terry’s new book “Eat Clean, Live Well”

    I am trying to start eating better. Time for a change. Looks like I NEED your book.

    I stumbled across your website and I’m very interested in your book. I’ve been struggling with autoimmune issues that are affecting my daily life. I’ve been gluten free for five months, but know there is more I could be doing. I think your book could be helpful in taking the next steps!

    Clean eating and living a healthy lifestyle are a part of my every day life. I eat as close to nature as possible because my energy is increased and I feel at my optimal best.
    Can’t wait for your book to launch. I’m always eager to learn new idea’s

    My teenage daughter and I have been eating clean and are always looking for new ideas!

  31. Posted November 2, 2014 at 2:26 pm | Permalink

    I have Been living with Multiple Sclerosis for two decades. The fatigue and other symptoms have decreased my quality of life. This year, I began eating fewer processed foods and incorporating more plants into my diet. I couldn’t deny the increase in energy I experienced. Then, a month ago, I began to embrace an “almost” vegan diet and began searching for recipes, blogs and cookbooks to help me on my quest to eating a clean, plant-based diet. My goal is to become vegan by the end of this year, though it’s a harder transition for other family members. I am having fun with new recipes and feeling so much better. My energy level has increased and I’ve had no progression of the disease in several months. That’s enough right there to keep me eating clean!

    Thank you for gathering your recipes and sharing with the world.
    A lot of people don’t even know where food comes from.
    I have been working for an organic vegetable farm for a few years. Bringing food to the markets to inspire people is a wonderful feeling. It makes me smile when I can get someone interested in cooking something they are unfamiliar with and then they come back for more!
    Thank you for making it even easier to spread the word….

    Terry, you have been an inspiration in so many ways. Not only have you provided my family with many nutritious and easy to make recipes but you have helped me to realize how easy it is to eat clean. I have become a more creative cook and now enjoy experimenting within my kitchen. I have all of your other books and would love to add to my collection.

    I just made your lentil walnut pate from Clean Food for a dinner party and it was so delicious and enjoyed. Thank you. I’m looking forward to more yummy recipes!

    Cooking clean food with mindfulness is a meditation and therapy for me… cooking clean AND delicious food…well that’s exquisite!

    Eating clean is something I am growing in and learning more about and certainly believe it is essential to Living Well! As a caterer I try to cook as fresh and simple as I can, anxiously awaiting your recipes to incorporate into my cooking – for myself and others!
    Look forward to your book Terry – congratulations!

    With an 1 year old at home eating clean has become even more important. Since she started solids I expose her to a variety of real food and allow her to explore. How many 1 year olds eat lentils, broccoli, kiwi and even wild caught sardines? Terry, your books are inspiring and because of you I now use mirin.

    Dear Mr. Walters,

    I just read a snipit of an interview you did and thought you may need a little help with the definition of the word Vegan.

    Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.

    Fish are sentient animals and are amongst the most exploited species on our planet. Our oceans, seas, rivers, bays, esturaies, lakes, and varous other water bodies are dying.

    I kindly ask that you no longer refer to yourself as a vegan. Veganism is an ethical stance against any form of animal cruelty. Veganism is not a diet. You have the ability to influences the masses – misinformatiom is not education.

    Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

    15 yr Vegan

    Dear Mel,

    Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concern and well-stated definition of veganism. As I do not cook with animal products, many are anxious to label me and my books vegan. I have never, however, referred to myself as vegan, and even in this interview stated outright that I “do not subscribe to the vegan label.” My clean food approach is to empower people to eat a bounty of foods that come from the green kind of plants, to reduce the amount of foods they consume that come from processing plants, and to understand where food comes from in general so that they can make healthy choices. In the end, I think it is possible we are working towards a very similar goal.

    With respect,

    I read through your book today in the bookstore and it made all the choices I’ve been making over the past 3 weeks seem so appetizing and simple. Sometimes without support it’s hard to make a change like this, but all the recipes from your book made this lifestyle approachable and along with a couple friends who have made the switch, I think this is the start of loving life again. Thanks for the encouragement and sharing your life 🙂

  41. Posted November 17, 2014 at 9:09 am | Permalink

    Thank YOU, Lindsay. It’s always easier to make changes when we do it together. Looking forward to sharing the clean food journey from this point forward. Don’t forget to check out the Clean Food page on Facebook as well!

    Eat clean live well!

    I just attended your seminar in WH this past weekend. You are a great speaker and your knowledge of food – good and bad is amazing. I have been staying away from dairy, sugar, red meat and white ‘stuff’ for about a year now. With your affirmation, I will continue on this journey and hope to try some of your recipes soon. (I actually threw the chia pudding in the fridge this a.m. Can’t wait to try it). Thanks again for your wealth of knowledge and sharing the locations of some of our local farmers.
