Cooking up a Bitchin’ New Contest

November 27, 2010

One signed copy for our lucky Eat Cleaner winner.

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.

Kim has been kind enough to give us a signed copy of The Ulimate Everyday Cookbook for one lucky Eat Cleaner follower.  Get one entry for each of the following:

Contest ends Monday, December 6th at midnight ET.  Enter today, don’t delay.  This is bitchworthy, so pass it on.

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

Skinny Bitch digs Eat Cleaner…and we heart her, too!

February 18, 2010

We inhale every book we can get our hands on that dishes the dirt on the food we eat.  And there’s one that we’ve fallen in love with for its straight up, trashy talkin, no b.s. approach and that’s Skinny Bitch, the New York Times Bestseller co-authored by Kim Barnouin.  I had the wonderful fortune of meeting Kim at the Go Green Expo in LA last month with a former colleague of mine, Julie, co-founder of healthybitchdaily.com – a fortunate twist of fate!  After sharing our products, Kim provided us with this amazing testimonial on Eat Cleaner products, below.  If you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend it for its honest look at the food on our plates. Don’t let the title fool you!  It’ not about getting skinny, it’s a wake-up call served up like warm revenge against GMO’s, soda and artificial anything by a couple of sassy sistas.  The theme here is all-around health and consciousness around what you stick in your mouth. A slick guide for eating cleaner, which is right up our alley.

You can also get Kim’s mouthfuls daily on her blog @healthybitchdaily.com.  Sign up and getit delivered to your inbox faster than a (vegan)pizza.

“As a health nut and neurotic mother, I am a diehard fan of EAT CLEANER Fruit + Vegetable Wash. With the number of pesticides and harmful chemicals farmers spray on our produce, rinsing with water just doesn’t suffice anymore. EAT CLEANER gives me the peace of mind to know that safe, fresh and healthy food for my family and I, is just a quick wipe away.”

Kim Barnouin, New York Times best selling author of Skinny Bitch weighs in on Eat Cleaner.
