I haven't read any of the Clean Eating anythings; I've just always heard the term 'eating clean' used for healthy food, but maybe I need to check out the books! I also recommend Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and The Omnivore's Dilemma. AVM is one of the main books that got me eating animal protein again.

Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels is a good one too; she really goes into everything else in the environment that affects our health.

The Becoming Vegan/Becoming Vegetarian series is excellent if you want to stop eating animal products, and books like Mad Cowboy, Slaughterhouse, Skinny B*tch, and The China Study are good to read if you're hooked on commercial animal products. Overall I think if you're going to eat meat and dairy you'd best read up on what goes on behind the scenes as much as you can!! Factory farming is pretty gross.

The Kind Life by Alicia Silverstone. She talks about vegan diet and more!

I think that most of us have had some exposure to Tosca's Clean Eating series of books and Clean Eating Magazine. What other readings have you enjoyed that have lead you on the path towards the clean eating lifestyle?

I would like to recommend a couple of books:

1) Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - the true story of author Barbara Kingsolver and her family's one year adventure of eating locally (basically what they grew or raised on their farm). It's a great read and starts to introduce the shameful practices of the commercial food industry. Very humerous and filled with some great recipes. Cheese making anyone?!

2) The Omnivore's Dilemma - A more in depth look at the commercial food industry practices.
