About Clean Plates
Clean Plates NYC ($13.95) is a food-lover's guide to eating well when eating out in New York City. It's a great resource for finding restaurants that let you indulge in a delicious meal out without checking your ethics (or your top button) at the door. Since this edition only covers Manhattan, The Daily Green asked author Jared Koch to prepare these tips for the rest of the country.
"A major Clean Plates principle is that eating out doesn't have to derail your desire to eat food that's good for you and the environment," Koch said. "The trick? Make smart choices after asking a few questions and taking an educated look at the menu. Eating healthier while dining out should be easy and enjoyable."
