I managed to get a copy of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind a few days before the release date. This is the new book of deliciousness from Vanessa Barajas. I admit I have followed her Instagram posts for a long time and was excited to see this new book!
Now, I have to admit that I tend to pick up all of the new Paleo cookbooks as they come out, particularly the ones from the well respected bloggers in the Paleo community. I have shelves full of these books. Most of which I manage to pull 3 or 4 strong recipes from, and maybe only one or two I cook regularly. Only a very few of these books come out on a regular rotation and I use the recipes regularly…examples being Nom Nom Paleo Food for Humans by Michelle Tan, Practical Paleo by Diane San Filippo, Well Fed 1 and 2 by Melissa Joulwan to name a few of my favorites.
That being said, Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind kept me flipping the pages! The photos are just breathtaking and the recipes not only seem dee-lishus but also not overly complicated! I spent two evenings thumbing through trying to decide what to try first and the movie Julia & Julia came to mind, I kept thinking, I want to try every recipe in this book! There is literally only a couple of recipes I would not normally mess with, only because just not a favorite dish to me, but still looks appealing!
So, like some crazy fan I sent a message to the author, Vanessa Barajas, and told her my though on Instagram! I think i heard a giggle in her response, but decided then, I am going to do this!
Ok, so I am not going to commit to a crazy time frame, but I am going to work my way through this book and post about it as I go! I will keep posting other foods, but you will know when it is an Every. Single. Recipe. post. So get ready, her book is fantastic! 152 delicious recipes are on the way…get ready! Let me know your thoughts…!
