About the Book
Go green, eat clean
In Clean Green Eats, chef, health journalist, and healthy-living expert Candice Kumai offers more than 100 recipes that make clean eating easy, inspiring, and delicious. Her food philosophy is simple: Eat more plants, fewer animals, less dairy, low-sugar, low-gluten, and zero processed food. With an emphasis on eating fresh, seasonal greens, whole grains, and clean protein, Candice shows you how to create meals you can feel great about eating and sharing with your family and friends.
Candice starts off with an overview of wholesome ingredients—including a guide to the most nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, whole (and gluten-free) grains, and healing herbs and spices. Next, she offers an optional two-week cleanse—which includes fresh, low-sugar juices, smoothies, and clean, green meals—to detox the body and kickstart weight loss. And then, the best part—mouthwatering recipes for every meal and every occasion:
- Wake up to Creamy Coconut Oatmeal, Blueberry Bliss Flax Zucchini Bread, or Clean Green Kale and Mushroom Frittatas.
- Reinvent your salad with Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad, Superfood Coconut Curry Salmon Salad, and Macrobiotic Hijiki- Avocado Salad.
