Love It

Hi Eat-Clean Bloggers....

It's been another busy week and I LOVE IT!!! I've had such a great time at the various appearances I've attended. On Tuesday night I was at Nella Cucina Culinary School in Toronto, where the lovely Joanne Lusted (head chef) hosted about 24 of us in a cooking demo and family-style dinner. It was a night I won't soon forget and a great way to get to know a lot of the people following the Eat-Clean Diet. Men and women alike came out to try their hand at cooking a bunch of recipes from The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook including Pad-Thai Clean-Eating Style, Tuna Burgers, 5 B Salad and more. We were also treated to Apricot Chicken Curry a la Rene, Pumpkin Hummus, Tuscan Bean Dip AND.... Pomegranate Fizz... yummy!!

I took the video below. It is of my assistant, Vinita, my daughters, Rachel and Kiersten, and their cooking partner, Tony. They were in charge of Pad Thai for 30:



Here are a couple of pics from the night, too:

Enjoying some lovely Pad Thai (cute presentation, eh). Leanne kept our glasses full all night long:

It was a great night and I hope I can do it again soon!

Why not try a new recipe from your favorite clean cookbook.... You might be in for a surprise!

Have a great day!

Yes, it does look like fun.
I'm going to have to try some of those recipes.

The clean eating is so different from what I'm use too. Don't get me wrong, but some of the foods you use just wasn't a part of our diets.

Wish me luck!
