Why go out to eat? Cooking at home is easy, healthy, delicious, and affordable--and with the right techniques and ingredients, preparing a home-cooked meal can be quicker than picking up take-out. The Naked Foods Cookbook, the anticipated follow-up cookbook to Margaret Floyd's Eat Naked, shows readers how they can create whole, organic, and fresh naked meals that maximise the natural nutritional value of food. Unlike commercially available prepared foods and restaurant dishes, naked meals contain no harmful additives, preservatives, or empty-calorie fillers. Because cooking naked is well-suited to people who need energy for busy lifestyles, this cookbook is organized around the time it takes for readers to prepare each type of dish: in a rush recipes take ten minutes or less, every day recipes take twenty minutes or less, and an impress the neighbors section offers more time-intensive recipe selections. Readers who seek to control the quality of ingredients and nutrients in their food will turn to this cookbook time and time again for affordable, naturally delicious meals they can feel good about eating and serving to others.
‘I cannot say enough about the positive changes that have come my way since switching over to the naked lifestyle. My meals are fresh and delicious and I know I am only putting the healthiest and purest foods into my body. Not only do I feel amazing, but I was also able to lose all the baby weight I gained after the birth of my second child. I see no reason to eat over-processed food when there is a simple way to feed myself and my family nourishing meals.’
- Kerry Armstrong, busy mother and producer of The Moth StorySLAMS
