Cooking up a Bitchin’ New ContestNovember 27, 2010
I first met Kim Barnouin a little less than a year ago at the Los Angeles Go Green Expo. She was with a former PR colleague of mine and together, they had launched www.healthybitchdaily.com, a savvy, straight talkin’ blog for the babe who gives a damn. Kim couldn’t have been more cordial and endearing, and having already been an afficianado of her two-years-on-the-NY-Times-bestselling-Skinny-Bitch-series, she had me at vegan. If you haven’t read the books, don’t think it’s a shallow wade about stupid fad diets or the Real (puh-lease) Housewives of LA. As a former model, she started suffering from a myriad of health issues, living on caffeine, nicotine and thin air. Her journey to find her own path to wellness took her straight to food, and a degree in holistic nutrition. The book is eye-opening and sharp as a machete, cutting through the crap of CAFO’s, chemicals and suggestions on how can take responsibility for what we put in our mouths, dammit.
So, when Kim shared she was working on a new cookbook – Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook: Crazy Delicious Recipes that Are Good to the Earth and Great for Your Bod – we couldn’t wait to dig in. And she lived up to the hype of the SB phenom, producing a gorgeous, down-to-earth compilation of real food (not just vegan faux meat) that honors nature’s gifts, written in straight-up tongue. With almost 150 recipes, full-color photos, complete nutritional breakdowns, and simple “switch-outs” for quick variations, the sassy commentary and real insights make this read more like a resource guide than just a cookbook, so this is one you’ll always go back to as a reference.

N.B. Eat Cleaner was fortunate enough to host a book signing with her and our green goddess galpal Anna Getty at our Natural Products Expo booth last March.
We also did a killer giveaway of a juicer package a couple months ago. While we’ve already given away the prize package, you can watch the video here and listen to us dish about green juice and how her 3 1/2 year old has a better palate than most adults. http://www.youtube.com/user/Eatcleaner?feature=mhum#p/u/5/pOoMWH5wfEc
