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, 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.
