It’s My Pleasure to Give You this Free Book!
Why am I giving away a book that I’d sold for many years and that has helped so many people? The answer is simple, I’ve found a program that is more up-to-date, Whole30 and that you can implement using only their free PDFs. For the science behind Whole30, see It Starts with Food.

The Value of Clean and Free
Since the first Clean and Free edition over 20 years ago, I’ve successfully used this material as a workbook with many hundreds of students and clients. You’ll find it–and the 37 Recipes–an invaluable aid. It is about relishing real foods that meet your specific needs.
The first recipe I made from your book was the Honey-Fried Asian Pears. It tasted so good—like a desert from a nice restaurant! This was very inspiring for me. Since then, I’ve been gradually trying your other recipes. I realize that I am able to make them—and they all taste amazing. Now I’m really enjoying both cooking and eating. —Jane R., Massachusetts
Honey-Fried Asian Pears
Here’s a lush treat that’s ready in under 10 minutes. Simply sauté Asian pear slices with a little honey. While the fruit softens, the honey caramelizes, making an exquisite sauce—with only one pot to clean! Red palm oil turns the pear into a beautiful golden color.
1 large ripe Asian pear
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive or palm oil
1 tablespoon honey
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon grated lemon or orange zest
Freshly grated nutmeg
Cut the pear in half and remove the stem and seeds (and the peel, if desired). Cut into ½-inch slices.
Warm the oil, honey, cinnamon, and lemon zest in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring to blend. Lay the pear slices into the oil mixture and cook for about 4 minutes, until soft on one side. Turn and cook until soft on the other side and the honey thickens, turns a shade darker,and lightly caramelizes.
Divide the pear slices and their sauce between 2 dessert plates. Garnish with nutmeg.
Variation: Use apple, pear, or fresh pineapple slices or a firm fruit of your choice in place of the pear.
