Sara Dickerman: Author Talk: Bon Appetit: The Food Lover’s Cleanse
Reboot your eating habits with Bon Appétit’s wildly popular online plan, created by local food writer Sara Dickerman, now expanded for the whole year with four two-week seasonal plans and 140 recipes. What began as an interactive post-holiday plan that puts an emphasis on home cooking and whole foods, the Bon Appétit cleanse has now been expanded for the entire year. Inside you’ll find four different two-week cleanse plans, one for each season, and 140 fabulous recipes that use fresh, flavorful, unprocessed ingredients. High in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains—with no refined flours, very limited dairy and saturated fats, little to no alcohol or coffee (and a small serving of dark chocolate!)—the program emphasizes eating mindfully, controlling portion size, and curbing grazing impulses. Empty calories are replaced with filling protein- or fiber-rich snacks.
We're thrilled to welcome our dear friend Sara to our kitchen, where she'll answer your questions about adding flavor to your everyday cooking, share tips on making weeknight cooking doable, and of course, sign copies of her fantastic new book. And here's a Holiday Gift Idea: Pre-order the book, choose "instore pickup," and swing by between December 22nd-24th so you can put a SIGNED COPY under the tree, then come to the event in January.
