    Interesting cookbook. Perfect for the start of a New Year when everyone is set to loose weight, eat healthier, exercise more, yada, yada yada. It's well organized, very positive to keep you motivated, and clear colorful pictures with every recipe. However, most of this food is not my normal way of cooking. Surprise! Now, if someone came into my kitchen and cooked for me every day, I would happily eat every single dish. (Except tofu, can't do it.)

I've eaten most of the foods in this book, but not in the combinations they're presented in this book. Too much thinking for me. Now, my daughter loves it, but she's twenty-five. 😊 She’s very encouraging though! So if you're looking to change your diet and start eating healthy foods, this is the cookbook for you! Enjoy and good luck!

    Eating clean: "Start with fresh produce, whole grains, and lean proteins; prepare them simply; and take the time to share them and enjoy them." As with anything from the editors at Martha Stewart Living, this cookbook is filled with beautiful photos, delicious-sounding recipes and great advice to change your eating habits for better health. My daughter and son-in-law have done the 21-day detox cleanses twice with good results.

    This is another book I instantly fell in love with the first time I flipped through it. Saw lots and lots of easy recipes that looked yummy, with avocados, oranges, simple salads, etc. Then as I slowly made my way through the book I realized with dismay that many of these recipes call for ingredients that I don't normally keep in my kitchen. Cardamom, quinoa, watercress, farro.

I know, these are not hard-to-find items, and this review actually says a lot more about me and my horrible eating habits than it does about the book, but if I were to try to follow this eating plan, it would take a lot more time and effort than I can put in just now. Really, I was just looking for an easy, healthy sandwich I can take to work for lunch. Or something spectacular yet simple that I can pull out as a side at Thanksgiving. But one day, when I work less than 48 hours a week, when I have only one job, I will come back to you little cook book. One day....

    when I first saw this book I thought it would just be filled with flavorless low calorie recipes to detox your body, on the contrary these recipes not only made you feel fantastic but were flavorful and delicious. this will be one of the cookbooks I keep in my collection for a long time. the book not only was filled with recipes but interesting health information that is beneficial to staying healthy and living long.

    The recipes seemed reasonable but 'detox' doesn't really mean anything in the context of this book. The recipes seemed reasonable but 'detox' doesn't really mean anything in the context of this book.

    This is a nice cookbook with some good information and recipes, but not really much new. There are your classic juices and smoothies, salads, chicken, roasted veggies, and so forth. Don't get me wrong, there's some good stuff here. It just doesn't feel groundbreaking to me. Overall, the book feels like more effort went into presentation than content. I mean, do we really need an entire page that all it says is, "Golden Rule No. 8 remember to stay hydrated" followed by a page of how good water is This is a nice cookbook with some good information and recipes, but not really much new. There are your classic juices and smoothies, salads, chicken, roasted veggies, and so forth. Don't get me wrong, there's some good stuff here. It just doesn't feel groundbreaking to me. Overall, the book feels like more effort went into presentation than content. I mean, do we really need an entire page that all it says is, "Golden Rule No. 8 remember to stay hydrated" followed by a page of how good water is for us and how much we should drink along with a little information on other healthy drinks? The book is in two parts; Reset and Recipes. There is some good information in the Reset section along with some that makes you wonder how stupid they think people really are. It ends with a 3-day action plan and a 21-day action plan. From there it moves to recipes. As I stated above, there's a lot of basic recipes you find in most cookbooks of this type (kale chips, anyone?), but there's some good stuff, too. I make what we call "cold oatmeal" and the book calls "Fruit and Almond Alpine Muesli", but I never thought of using yogurt in place of half of the milk. I'll definitely try that next time! I'll probably pass on the Sardines and Cream Cheese on Rye (for breakfast!?!), but I definitely want to try the Cardamom Quinoa Porridge with Pear. Overall, this is a good cookbook. If you have a pile of these already on your shelf, it may not be anything new, but for someone who really wants to start eating better and get healthy, this is a great cookbook for them. I received a copy of this book through Blogging for Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I was really hopeful about this cookbook but it wasn't quite what I was expecting based on the description.

There are a lot of resources in the book that can help clarify and educate the reader on all things whole foods. The book itself is well made with nice, heavy pages and contains great photographs of the food.

    My problem is many of these items my local grocery stores do not carry-Azuki beans, Serrano Chile, cotija cheese etc. So unless I travel out of my area to a bigger grocery store or a specialty shop, these recipes are not ever going to be made by me. Few recipes I would make. (main reason for 2 stars) The info is common sense but I do not think I can give up my coffee!

    Although I am a firm believer or that we do not need detox diet since our body does a good enough job on its own, this book did have some nice recipe ideas that were vegan and gluten-free.

    I admit it - I love to read cookbooks. But this one was special - I wanted to learn more about healthy eating and I wanted a guide I could count on. Martha Stewart to the rescue! This book provides it all; information about food, herbs, and mindfulness. And of course the recipes (though I only paid attention to the non-meat ones) were perfect. My only regret is that I'd have liked to see a bit about how we, as practitioners of mindful eating, can pay it forward. A last chapter devoted to "making I admit it - I love to read cookbooks.

    I like that on each recipe at the bottom it would dairy free, nut free, etc. It would also give out facts about how many calories etc. I think more cookbooks should have that feature to them. However I found some of the recipes unappealing.

    What doesn't Martha know? Now she is telling us how to eat healthfully. The recipes look delicious and the photos are beautiful. I don't agree with the wellness tips 100%, but most of them are spot on. For those looking to "eat clean," this cookbook fits the bill. What doesn't Martha know?

    What better way to start the new year than with a clean yet delightful diet? I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this cookbook! In keeping with Martha Stewart Living's clean and fresh style, this book is a pleasure to the eyes. It makes a great coffee table book. But it goes much, much further than that of course!

In keeping with Martha Stewart Living's clean and fresh style, this book is a pleasure to the eyes. It makes a great coffee table book. But it goes much, much further than that of course! To my great surprise and delight, this cookbook is packed with incredibly healthy, very inspiring and too delicious to be true recipes! I am extremely rigid with my rules in healthy living, and usually have to ignore half the recipe in even a ''healthy'' cookbook. This book, however, overwhelms me with it's thoroughness and attention to health concerns. Happily, the reader/cook can rest at ease concerning the foods presented in this book. Martha Stewart Living has long provided healthy and absolutely delicious recipes; this cookbook continues with that tradition. Contained within this new large paperback cookbook are dozens of exciting recipes which follow the mantra of the cookbook: Reset your health, detox your body and feel your best! I must insert a note to fellow extreme nutritionists: this book doesn't include soaking or sprouting the grains used in the recipes. On that note, it does include many recipes involving grains (quinoa, etc). However, I am assuming we can simply prepare the grains as we normally would, while following the recipe for the remainder of the preparation. The desserts don't seem to incorporate stevia, but use honey. A couple of the recipes include brown sugar. But they seem simple enough to play around with according to each cook's level of ''fanaticism''! I would say that this cookbook's strong point is in the vegetable dishes and snacks! For those of you who are curious as to how many new recipes this book presents...I can't answer you precisely, but I did recognize many recipes from the Martha Stewart Living magazines. However not every recipe is a double. Helpfully, this book also includes guidelines for restocking your pantry with whole grains, beans and legumes, lean proteins, and healthy fats; glossaries of the best sources of detoxifiers, antioxidants, and other health-boosting nutrients; and menus for a simple 3-day cleanse and a 21-day whole-body detox, with easy-to-follow tips and strategies for staying on track. Clean Slate is organized into sections as follows.... Replenish: Get off to a good start Whole-Wheat Waffles with Strawberries and Yogurt; Poached Eggs with Roasted Tomatoes Reboot: Drink to your health Grapefruit, Carrot, and Ginger Juice; Green Machine Smoothie Recharge: Load up on vegetables Roasted Mushroom Tartines with Avocado; Steamed Vegetable Salad with Macadamia Dressing Reenergize: Choose your snacks wisely Warm Spinach-White Bean Dip; Trail Mix with Toasted Coconut Restore: Make meals with substance Wild Salmon, Asparagus, and Shiitakes in Parchment; Grilled Chicken with Cucumber, Radish, and Cherry Tomato Relish Relax: Have a little something sweet Dark Chocolate Bark with Hazelnuts; Berry-Almond Crisp I am excited about using this cookbook, and hope you will as well!

    Well, it sounds good, doesn’t it? This book starts out with 11 “golden rules” Why 11? Anyway, they mostly sound good and include eating whole foods, not processed food-like products, mostly plants (sounds like Michael Pollen here), staying hydrated, getting enough fiber and exercising. I do think that establishing smart meal-planning which is golden rule #9 is important because that is one area that I tend to fail in.

I do think that establishing smart meal-planning which is golden rule #9 is important because that is one area that I tend to fail in. I look in cookbooks, make a list, shop, can’t find all the stuff on the lists, buy the ones I can find, then get home and have an odd assortment and I can’t remember which recipes the ingredients were for and when I figure it out, I am missing some key ingredient and then I put it in the pantry or eat it with something else and fail to follow the plan I started out with. Then the book has 3 day and 21 day action plans to first reboot and detox you and then clean the slate (which I thought would be cleaned out from the first 3 days), focus on “awareness” and form healthy habits. The big huge problem I have with this plan is they rely on juices and smoothies. I do not like juices and smoothies. I would much rather eat my food. Plus, the juices have way too much sugar in them. The pineapple spinach juice – made in a juicer – contains 5 cups chopped romaine, 1 cup baby spinach and 3 cups of chopped pineapple. OMG. I cup of pineapple has 14 grams of sugar so 3 cups has 42! How on earth can that be good for anyone? I need to watch my sugar intake and that right there could put some people into diabetic shock or something. Not to mention that drinking lettuce juice sounds gross. I would be fine eating the lettuce and spinach as a salad with maybe a half cup of chopped pineapple on it, but the juice sounds too sweet and very unhealthy. I like drinking water, tea, coffee, and wine. I sometimes will drink kombucha and this week I tried a chia drink. Chia seeds in a drink have the consistency of tomato seeds so it is like drinking a cup of juice with tomato seeds in it. Not really pleasant to me. So, while I can’t follow the plans in this book since I don’t do juices or smoothies, I do think that some of the other recipes look good.

The book is well designed and definitely has some tasty recipes. My one word of caution is that it is not your normal “Diet book,” so do not purchase it with that in mind. The recipes are definitely plant focused and following this diet plan is a lifestyle change not a dietary change. For those already eating a plant heavy diet then you will definitely love some of these recipes. For those interested in adopting a vegetarian themed meal lifestyle change proceed with caution. Following the cleanse and detox plan will take discipline and care should be used if you choose to attempt them. I highly recommend you consult with your doctor and nutritionist before beginning any new dietary adjustments such as a detox. The recipes however are doable on your own and should prove to be very tasty. Each recipe comes with an ingredients list, directions, and illustrations. The book can serve as either a cookbook or coffee table book with its wonderful design.

If you’re interested in cutting out the extra sugar and unnecessary fat (but not all the fat, by any means) and getting back to cooking from scratch, the editors of Martha Stewart Living present Clean Slate, which is so much more than a cookbook. It begins with a list of guidelines for eating well and includes three-day and twenty-one-day meal plans for cleansing your palate and getting started. The recipes in this cookbook are simply amazing: breakfasts like Breakfast Vegetable-Miso Soup with Chickpeas and Banana-Apple Buckwheat Muffins; eighteen delicious juice and smoothie recipes, including a Spiced Papaya Smoothie; plenty of meat-free entrees, such as Roasted Squash with Grains, Grapes, and Sage; healthy snacks, like Roasted Cauliflower Yogurt Dip; protein-packed dinners, from Grilled Tofu with Chimichurri on Toast to Wild Salmon with Lentils and Arugula; and desserts, of course, full of healthy ingredients and plenty of fruit but still so indulgent (give Fig and Walnut Biscotti a try). With delicious ingredients, easy-to-follow instructions, and gorgeous pictures, Clean Slate deserves a place on your bookshelf. Originally written for San Francisco Book Review.

    This is a new favorite cookbook of mine for many reasons. I got it in the mail surprised at how big of a book it was! There is a lot packed into this cookbook! The first part of the book is about eating healthy and clean. There is a 72 hour detox schedule you can follow and then there is a 21 day action plan where you follow the organized meal list.

I like the meals because there aren't many where you have to buy weird random food items. There are some great smoothie recipes that aren't all kale ( I've tried that and I'm not a fan). Another great part about this book is it lists if things are dairy free, gluten free, nut free, or vegan. For me the dairy free items are really helpful and I have a lot more options on different meals from this book. The pictures are great, there is one for each recipe so you know what you are making. The index is amazing and handy and I find this an all around usable cookbook! I love Martha Stewart's recipes and magazine and this cookbook is just as great!

I found chicken and fish and several side dishes I want to try. One thing I always look for in a cookbook anymore (I am dairy, whey & soy intolerant & Baby is Gluten Free) is whether the recipes are labeled vegan, dairy, nut or gluten free. I found plenty of anti-inflammatory ingredients & recipes that will help with the pain and discomfort of a Chronic Pain condition. =D Read the rest of my review @ http://givingnsharing.blogspot.com/20...

    4.5 stars Filled with good general healthy eating information, nice photos (from what I could tell on my small B&W Kindle), and recipes that look yummy. There are different detox plans to choose from: a 3-day or a 21-day menu; or you can do just the first week or so of the 21-day plan. You don't even need to follow the detox to make reading Clean Slate worthwhile - the recipes I've tried are healthy, easy and tasty. Some of them are marked - Vegan, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, and/or Gluten-Free.

I detracted 1/2 a star because there were no substitutions provided for those with dietary restrictions (of which I have a few). FYI, all recipes are available on MARTHASTEWART.COM

    Quite possibly the very definition of "basic" in the cookbook sense, but I loved this book so much that I *bought* it, which rarely happens. The design is just really appealing, and the recipes work together so well--perhaps because they're ostensibly part of a cleanse program, so ingredients are repeated quite a bit, which makes recipes easy to shop for and cook (got watercress? great, 12 recipes feature it). The photography is lovely, the typefaces are judiciously chosen, I did the 3-day clean Quite possibly the very definition of "basic" in the cookbook sense, but I loved this book so much that I *bought* it, which rarely happens.

The photography is lovely, the typefaces are judiciously chosen, I did the 3-day cleanse, what is wrong with me. (The recipes in the 3-day cleanse are delicious, btw…especially that strawberry drink, damn.) So yeah, do it if you want a "healthy" cookbook, whether or not you actually believe in the power of cleanse.
