Few cookbooks can satisfy a crowd of vegans, omnivores, and every other stripe of eater – if your household has three different people eating three different diets your shelves are probably overloaded by now.
Enter The Clean Plates Cookbook by Jared Koch with Jill Silverman Hough.
Jared and I both graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and run in the same “we like healthy, yummy food” circles.
His first book, Clean Plates Manhattan, demystified “clean eating” and gave us all a map of the healthy, organic and sustainable options all over NYC.
His cookbook is a treasure trove of delicious recipes that guide the home cook who wants to gain clarity around the topic of nutrition and what works best for their unique bodies.
Whether you’re eating a plant-based, gluten-free, low-carb, or combination diet, it should be delicious and healthy.
Filled with tips on eating out, traveling and shopping, Clean Plates Cookbook also includes a variety of “secret recipes” from the best healthy restaurants out there including Real Food Daily and Candle 79.
I know it’s winter, but I can’t WAIT to try the Watermelon Gazpacho recipe! For now I’ll stick with the Sauteed Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Shallots and Almonds, Grilled Salmon* with Strawberry Avocado Salsa (I need some great fish recipes – I haven’t cooked it in a while!) and the Buckwheat Crepes with Oranges and Gingered Agave.

* When buying fish, make sure you’re getting sustainable seafood. Use the apps found at www.seafoodwatch.org and www.blueocean.org to search for any fish or seafood. These updated programs will tell you if a fish is a good bet for health safety and sustainable fishing practices.
