Sara Dickerman. Morrow, $35 (352p) ISBN 978-0-06-239023-3
In the foreword, Bon Appétit editor-in-chief Adam Rapoport explains that each year the magazine shares food writer Dickerman’s cleanse (developed with nutritionist Marissa Lippert) with their readers. The plan doesn’t dictate overly strict, hard-to-stick-with detoxing, but focuses on resetting after overindulging. Now in book form, the title includes four two-week cleanses, one for each season, and 140 inspired recipes. Readers are primed with a “Prepping for the Cleanse” tips, and Dickerman provides options for substitutions, as well as troubleshooting issues such as what to do when a birthday party hits midcleanse or if your spouse isn’t participate in the eating plan. It’s hard to imagine going hungry with hearty breakfasts such as bulgur with dried apricots and pistachios, or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, chives, and rye crackers. All of the four-season dinner options include plentiful fish and seafood recipes, such as lemongrass shrimp with mushrooms, and clams with white beans and gremolata. Snacks think outside the chip bag with low-fat options such as blanched cauliflower with chickpea and hazelnut dukkah, and roasted beet and tahini dip with crudités. Menu planners and detailed shopping lists make it easier to follow the full eating cleanse. (Dec.)
