Starting the New Year Fresh: Clean Slate Cookbook Review

Chris and I have tried to start the new year out eating healthy.  We always try to get back on track after the holidays, especially with Spring Training quickly approaching.  We have to get that pitcher of mine ready for a long season and starting the year off with clean foods is the best way I know how.  Now we aren't perfect, the craving for Mexican food and cheese dip hits me often, but we are trying our best! Nobody is perfect, right?

So in our effort to eat fresh, I was so excited to get my latest cookbook from Blogging for Books, Clean Slate.  It is a cookbook full of clean recipes that look absolutely delicious! It also is full of great tips on what foods to buy, nutritional information, and general clean eating guidelines!

One of my favorite sections in Clean Slate is the breakfast section.  I can't wait to try the recipe for whole-wheat waffles with sliced strawberries and yogurt one morning! I also love that there is a section called "reboot" that is all about juicing.  Juicing is one of my favorite ways to get back on track and incorporate vegetables that I wouldn't normally eat.  I am always looking for new juice recipes, and  Clean Slate has some great juices for detoxifying! I love that they include the nutritional information for each juice for when I am counting calories. 

One of the main reasons I love this cookbook s that the recipes aren't boring.  I can only cooked baked chicken and stir fried vegetables so much before I get completely bored.  I love recipes that have fun ingredients and that challenge me in the kitchen.  It keeps me occupied and interested.  Clean Slate meets those needs with healthy recipes that are full of flavor and ingredients to keep me interested.  

And to top it all off, this cookbook has beautiful pictures.  Which as crazy as it sounds is a must for me when it comes to cookbooks.  I know it should be all about the recipes, but I love a pretty cookbook that has pretty pictures.  I guess I'm just a child at heart and love picture books! 

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.  All opinions and photos are my own.
