F04889 - "The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook" by Tosca Reno
I love this book~!! Most of the ingredients are easily available from super markets. "Preparation" is quite simiple. Most of dishes require 2-3 steps, no more than 5 steps. I LOVE it~~!!
Lengthy and Costly Ingredient List
I browsed through this cookbook and was amazed at the lengthy and costly list of ingredients. Most need to be purchased at a health food store or a specialty store. I doubt the grocery store carries many of these ingredients. Also, the price of these "specialty ingredients" called for in many of the recipes will be astronomical to purchase. As for me, I'll just exercise more and use portion control. In today's economy purchasing the ingredients listed is not economical for me.
Absolutely the Best
For years I have tried to eat healthy, striving to eat the things that have been put on this earth for us to consume, not the things of man. This cookbook has kicked that up a notch! I would never have thought to put together the things that Tosca has put together in this book. These recipes have truly been a blessing to me, encouraging me to continue to eat healthy because they are so incredibly tasty. I just can't say enough good things about this book. I have now purchased every book and magazine created by Tosca and crew. It is now my favorite cookbook (and I have a LOT).
5 Stars and THEN SOME!!!
This book is simply amazing. I've used several recipes already. And WAIT A MINUTE...my kids actually liked them!!!! I'd highly, highly recommend her other books as well. Especially the Eat Clean Diet for Family & Kids. Great stuff. Way to go QVC for adding Tosca on your show! It's great that there is another venue in which she can spread her great word!!!!
Fabulous book - great results!
I have owned this book in conjunction with the Eat Clean Diet Book and really love them both!
The cookbook still gives you a good overview of the Eat Clean principles, but I suggest choosing the "Diet" book if you are only going to get one.
The cookbook has really fabulous and creative ideas. I love eating the "breakfast cookies" on my way to work!
Get this book - you will be glad you did!
Gotta get it!
This is a great book. I have been eating clean for 7 months now and it has totally changed my life. I've lost 35 pounds, with no pills... just good food. It isn't a diet... seriously... it is a life style change that is easy to to stick to.
As a triathlete I have to eat a lot of food to keep up with my training and racing. Also as an athlete what I put into my body is extremely important. VERY LITTLE JUNK! It is a complete fallacy to assume (I get this all the time) that because I work out so much I can eat whatever I want (translation: junk). That is simply not true.
We all put stress on our bodies in one form or another (whether from training or from sitting all day or from life stressors) and it's imperative that we make healthy food choices to remain healthy, vital and productive.
The Eat Clean recipes in Tosca's book enable me to make nutritious meals that also TASTE GOOD. She has tons of tips in there on how to plan meals and how to make quantities of things at a time so that you can have good stuff on hand to eat whether you want a full meal or a snack.
With the nutrition information Tosca provides with each recipe I know how many calories, carbs and proteins I am getting, which, again, is very important for me as an athlete. And there are recipes in there that satisfy my sweet tooth!
I cannot recommend this book enough -- it represents a wonderful rewarding and fun lifestyle to live through eating well and being active!
Only real way to stay healthy
This book is great and I would highly recommend it. I've been eating clean for 14 years. Diets don't work and this book should be called The Eat Clean Book instead of the Eat Clean Diet. Easy to follow plans and great recipes too. Thank you Tosca for putting it all down in writing for us.
I have tried several recipes out of this cookbook and LOVE THEM!! Eating Clean is so easy to do...my family doesn't even realize the changes I am making in their foods. The recipes are yummy and the entire eat clean concept is awesome! I feel so incredible and have so much energy - an COMPLETE MUST for everyone!
