As someone, much like Amie, who has struggled with conventional treatment of an auto-immune disease, I can attest to the healing power of food. In this age of overly processed food, excessive prescription medication, and so-called quick fixes, it’s so wonderful to hear Amie’s courageous voice inspiring us to return to a cleaner, more natural way of taking control of our health!” —SEAMUS MULLEN, award-winning chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and wellness advocate “Everything is changing when it comes to the health of our families. The escalating rates of food allergies, asthma, autism, diabetes, obesity, and cancer are changing how we view food. Eating Clean is a cookbook for a healthy life! With resources, tools, and a strong and gentle hand, it is a valuable resource for those on the road to recovery.” —ROBYN O'BRIEN, analyst, mother, and author of The Unhealthy Truth "Persevering through a battery of physicians and restructuring her food intake totally, Valpone achieved complete relief from chronic illness that had dogged and debilitated her for years. Causes of her poor health appeared to center on systemic accumulation of heavy metals and Lyme disease, among other disorders. To blaze a trail back to good health, Valpone successfully cleansed her body of toxins and jettisoned dairy products and gluten. She also rejected processed foods and anything pulled from a can. This sort of diet demands home cooking for virtually every meal. In the process, Valpone became expert at finding foods that met her requirements for both good health and satisfying flavors. She sought out obscure, nonstandard ingredients that promised anti-inflammatory benefits. The hundreds of recipes she advances may repudiate whole classes of edibles, but she is meticulous to keep her cooking flavorful and appealing by including many carefully sourced nuts, seeds, oils, fruits and vegetables." —Booklist "While most Western doctors doctors treat symptons, Amie Valpone believes that many diseases can be cured simply altering your diet and eliminating toxins from your environs." —Marie Claire —
