The Clean Plates Cookbook Giveaway!

Monday, March 25, 2013 at 02:03 PM - Posted by Megan - (4) comments

We can all use a little spring cleaning in the kitchen. And no, I’m not talking about organizing your pantry, but incorporating clean eating as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Nutritional Consultant and Clean Plates founder, Jared Koch, makes it easy with his newly released, The Clean Plates Cookbook, which continues his mission to educate people on how it can drastically pay off to eat cleanly. “Clean eating, as I define it, means eating high-quality real food as often as possible, based on what is right for your body and what stimulates your taste buds.” Jared shares. “In other words: healthy, sustainable, and delicious.”

It’s a truly incredible resource packed with tons of inspiring information and simple, healthy, delicious recipes—from meat- and seafood-based dishes to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. There’s really something for every body and every palate. Here’s a taste of some the recipes you’ll discover.

Meatball Mania

Tuesday, January 11, 2011 at 02:01 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, co-owners of The Meatball Shop, sure know how to grind up some great meatballs. Their Lower East Side meat-centric hotspot dishes out a fresh twist on a tried-and-true classic dish—certainly not an easy feat—and has gained a cult following since opening in February 2010.

The longtime buddies started the ambitious joint venture based on the notion, “who doesn’t love a good meatball?” Within less than a year, their laid-back Stanton Street meatball mecca has garnered a loyal fan base, steady stream of first-foray success and quite the media buzz. Brooklynites can get on the ball soon too—an expansion to Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg was announced recently.

Last Friday, the dynamic duo hit up Late Night to teach Jimmy Fallon a thing or two about making their famous meatballs. Click here for the funny, innuendo-filled (boys will be boys) demo segment and recipes. While balling it up with Fallon, news dropped of plans for a third location in the West Village—a Greenwich Street shop is set to open this summer. There’s even a cookbook in the works.
