My Review

This is a new favorite cookbook of mine for many reasons. I got it in the mail surprised at how big of a book it was! There is a lot packed into this cookbook! The first part of the book is about eating healthy and clean. There is a 72 hour detox schedule you can follow and then there is a 21 day action plan where you follow the organized meal list. I like the meals because there aren't many where you have to buy weird random food items.  There are some great smoothie recipes that aren't all kale ( I've tried that and I'm not a fan). 
Another great part about this book is it lists if things are dairy free, gluten free, nut free, or vegan. For me the dairy free items are really helpful and I have a lot more options on different meals from this book. 
The pictures are great, there is one for each recipe so you know what you are making. The index is amazing and handy and I find this an all around usable cookbook!

I love Martha Stewart's recipes and magazine and this cookbook is just as great!
