Oh! I also wanted to mention these books by Mark Bittman. I browsed a couple at the store the other day. His KITCHEN EXPRESS is wonderful! The recipes are not written out like traditional recipes. In the TRUE SPIRIT of CLEAN eating, there are absolutely NO MEASUREMENTS! LOL! He says to take a little of this, add a lot of that.... etc. It's great!
Sounds like a good book. I did know about the flax and water= egg substitute (i think it's in one of the threads) Always looking for another great CLEAN cookbook! So, the name of the book is CLEAN FOOD? Is this the book? booksandcooks.blogspot.com/2009/09/c le an-food.html It also looks like a great book for those with wheat, soy, dairy and corn sensitivities.
Hey All, I finally got this book and have had a chance to look through it. I'd say that this is not a cookbook for a beginning cook, but it would be good for someone transitioning to cleaner eating. The recipes are organized by seasons and the index is according to ingredient. I like this idea, since often I have something and go looking for ways to use it. I can't see whether its absolutely clean, as she uses some ingredients that I'm not very familiar with. However, its pretty darn clean (good thing when the title is Clean Food, huh?). I was about to come on here and ask about liquid aminos, since they're in a bunch of recipes, but once I started looking around she does a good job of explaining what they are and what can be substituted. See, I'm learning already - didn't know that you could use ground flax seed and water as a sub for eggs, either. Haven't made anything yet, but so far I'm interested!
