Reinventing Detox by Eating Clean

arugula salad in large bowl on white backgroundAmie Valpone—best known as The Healthy Apple—healed herself from a decade of chronic illness by resetting her eating habits. Along the way, she became a professional chef, culinary nutritionist, recipe developer and author. I became obsessed with her new book Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body, especially after I discovered recipes like this ridiculously delicious Magical Peach Arugula Salad, which is gluten-free, vegan and paleo. Want to try? I scored the recipe!

Amie says: Here’s a dish that provides a big payoff for very little effort. It takes about five minutes to throw this salad together, and the combination of peppers, peaches, and arugula is simply beautiful. Serve it in a wide bowl to show off its good looks.
