“Jared’s nutritional advice in Clean Plates has the power to transform your individual health and our collective well-being.”
– Deepak Chopra, M.D.

At Clean Plates, our mission is to make it easier and more enjoyable for you to eat healthy, sustainable food without sacrificing an ounce of taste. Whether you’re a conscientious carnivore or vegetarian, or you’re going gluten-free — we’ve got restaurant reviews, news and tips to help boost your health and keep your taste buds happy.

Available on Amazon.
