Amie Valpone, best known as The Healthy Apple, healed herself from years and years 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 Peach Arugula Salad, which is gluten-free, vegan and paleo
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.
