Clean Eating for Busy Families Cookbook Giveaway

Clean Eating for Busy FamiliesOne of our favorite colleagues, Michelle Dudash, RD, is a Cordon-Bleu-certified chef as well as a dietitian. We’re thrilled to feature her new cookbook, Clean Eating for Busy Families as a giveaway today.

Busy families who strive to eat clean but don’t want to spend tons of time planning now have a simple guide to help them put nutritious and delicious food on the dinner table. Win one of five copies of Clean Eating for Busy Families (a $20 value) in our Weekend Cookbook Giveaway.

Dudash explains the basic concept of the book this way: “…eating whole, minimally processed foods made with natural ingredients that are good for your body and good for the planet.” She gives guidelines for purchasing these ingredients at mainstream stores and tips to help you “go green” and “go clean” sprinkled throughout the book. It’s a very practical book with recipes that families will enjoy—and most of her recipes take only 30 minutes or less to prep. This book is centered on dinner, which is what most people want help with when it comes to cooking.

For those of you who like to see photos of the recipes (and who doesn’t?), you’ll be pleased to know that many of the recipes have full-page photos alongside. I happen to love the way that so many veggies are worked into the recipes. That’s a smart strategy that goes a long way toward saving time, improving nutritional content, and cutting down on dishes to wash! In general, filling out a recipe with more veggies is a good thing, and Dudash uses some creative and delicious ways to make that happen.

    Make a big pot of begatable soup that lasts for days. I keep it out so that when I am looking for asomething to nosh on it is right there and ready to go.

  3. alison harvey says

    I like to wash and prepare all our veggies so you can just go to the fridge and have a quick healthty snack … also sneaking veggies into meals is a great way to get them to eat healthier without knowing it :)

  4. Jennifer says

    Eating real foods. No processed snacks like granola bars. Eating fruits and nuts for snacks instead.

  5. says

    Prepping my veggies and meal ideas over the weekend helps me eat clean and make clean meals for my family!
    I love healthy cookbooks and this sounds like one that I would be using on my everyday cooking!

  6. Jonathan Buffington says

    I eat cleaner by eating fresh and simple; seasoned baked potato cubes, steamed veggies, and fresh fruit. This cookbook would be awesome for me to get new ideas on quick, clean, and fresh meals.

  7. Kim Heater says

    I eat cleaner by trying to shop mostly on the outer edges of the grocery store and purchasing more simple foods.

  8. Pamela says

    What a great site! John B. referred me here, glad he did! I am working on drinking green smoothies every day, they are so simple to make and really taste good!

  9. amie pepper says

    I try to feed the Kids as much fresh fruits and veggies as Possible when i can get it.

    Would love some new Ideas on how to feed a busy family of 6

  10. Carol Belanger says

    Roseanne M. Shannon sent me . . . I have begun reducing the amount of packaged foods that I buy, and try to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables each day.

  11. Hannah F says

    We threw out all of the refined sugars and processed foods a few months ago. We snack on nuts & veggies instead of junk. Biggest “clean” help: I use chocolate stevia drops instead of Nesquik for the kids :)

  12. Nicole says

    Favourite way is reduction in fats and salts… more food made from scratch and out of home grown veggies.

  13. says

    By eating healthier – I always include at least one fruit and one vegetable at lunch and dinner and always fruit with breakfast. I a posting this on FB and hope one of my fb friends comments that she saw my entry

    “Eat Real foods!” Skip the processed food! DRINK WATER! And more water…dump the sodas. The only bread I eat now is Dave’s Killer! Add brown rice, chicken, fish and lots of vegggies! Sweet potatoes are the ‘wonder’ food. I don’t really like them so I buy the fries and bake them really , really crispy!
