Clean Start Cookbook {giveaway} – New Year

Clean Start Cookbook
Clean Start couldn’t be a more perfect giveaway to “start” this week of giveaways here on TasteSpotting. We’re focusing on New Year’s resolutions and think that Terry Walters’s Clean Start cookbook will help you stick with whatever New Year’s Resolution you might have made, whether it’s to cook at home more, eat more seasonally, or get healthy.

We also think this cookbook is so awesome that it could help you drink less, stop smoking, run a marathon and call your parents every day.

I’ll be honest, when I received the book during late autumn, I just wasn’t in the right mindset to even look through it, let alone cook anything “clean.” I set the book aside.

Come early December, as we began preparing in advance for the onslaught of “get healthy! get fit!” New Year’s resolutions, I picked up Clean Start, started browsing, and kicked myself for not opening it up sooner. The dishes are beautifully simple, the photos are gorgeous, and the recipes are easy to read and follow. I love how the chapters are divided into seasons, a subtle reminder in and of itself of one of guiding principles of clean eating.

I’ve made a few of the recipes here in the TasteSpotting HQ Kitchen from both the Fall and Winter chapters and am trying a few more before we have to ship this off to a winner: Curried Cauliflower with Chickpeas, French Lentils with Roasted Root Vegetables and Caramelized Onions, and Pan Seared Tofu with Ginger Lime Glaze. While I won’t have the book for Spring and Summer, I’m looking forward to someone else making Asparagus with Miso Lemon Dressing and Marcona Almonds and Polenta with Portobello Mushrooms, Greens, and Tomato Vinaigrette.

To Enter This Giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment on this post with one of your food-related New Year’s resolutions. Don’t worry if you “dont’ do New Year’s Resolutions” (yeah right). This is a random drawing so it doesn’t matter what you say. Just make something up.
  2. Make sure to enter your email address in the box provided so we can contact you
  3. Share this giveaway post with your friends on facebook and twitter! (not required, but we’d love the help!)

You have until Wednesday January 11, 2011 at 5 PM PST to comment. Everyone is welcome to comment to enter, but we can only ship this stuff in the U.S. (So if you’re outside the US and win, you just need to provide us with a US mailing address to send!)

Good luck!

Also, come back every once in a while, since we’re giving more than a few things away this week at totally random, unspecified times because that’s how spontaneous Sarah is.

I started off the year with the food goal of getting my diet aligned with the old Mayo Clinic pyramid, but right now it’s just not feasible. Maybe by the end of the year it will be? lol

Other than that, I’m working more on watching calories, figuring out how to deal with the munchies, and exercising more. Hubs and I have gradually brought our serving sizes down and made our food healthier over the past few years, and I think that trend will continue through this year as well.

To incorporate clean eating into my family’s lifestyle. My youngest daughter has juvenile arthritis and my eldest is getting self-conscious about her body and I need to get healthy as I turn 40 this year! Our number one resolution is to eat better and cleaner!

One of my resolutions pertaining to food in the new year is to add good things into my diet, rather than focusing on the things that I consume that are less healthy. But, speaking of less healthy, I have resolved this year to learn to cook the three things that my husband loves most: an egg dish (can’t recall the exact name, but it involves several eggs, cream and butter), a chocolate raspberry layered cake, and perfectly fried chicken.
