Culinary nutritionist Amie Valpone battled unexplained illness for 10 years. She's finally healthy and more energetic, and she says it's due to removing toxins from her diet and lifestyle. In her new book, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, March 2016), Valpone provides a plan to help you start eating clean, by detoxing your diet and lifestyle. "Detox is getting the bad things out of your body and removing from your body the burdens of toxins,” Valpone says.
That’s why Valpone partnered with NOW®, which has a variety of clean and natural recipe staples, such as nuts, seeds, and ancient grains. She wants to show people you can create amazing flavor without all that junk, you just have to train your taste buds to do it. These five healthy summer recipes are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The organic ingredients will keep you feeling healthy and at your best during the pitta months.
