One of the things I like about the book, so far: it doesn't have the non-vegan bashing talk that some of the vegan books have. (Skinny Bitch series, for example.) Don't get me wrong, I love my Skinny Bitch books; however, they really bash dairy and meat eaters. Although I've been vegetarian for almost 39 years, I am not radical about it. Clean Food is a book that a meat-eater could read and choose to incorporate as a part of her diet without giving up meat. I like that more universal approach.

Thanks for the book review. I'm always looking for good books to have on hand. I think it's cool that you reading the book in a restaurant would get the proprietor involved in a conversation with you.

So I had a 25% off for Barnes & Noble Bookstore. Intended to buy my daughter or myself a good vegan cookbook for Christmas. This one is very interesting... giving it to her, yet going back with the next coupon to buy myself a copy, too!

Clean Food by Terry Walters

After shopping, I went to a local ristorante, Pane Bianco, on Central Ave in Phoenix. As I was eating my vegan bean soup, I was reading the book. The proprietor came over to talk to me asking about my book. Turns out they have their own organic garden and buy as much locally grown as possible for what they don't grow. My lunch fit right in with the book's advice. :D
