Why go out to eat? Cooking at home is easy, healthy, delicious, and affordable— and with the right techniques and ingredients, preparing a home-cooked meal can be quicker than picking up take-out. The Naked Foods Cookbook, the anticipated follow-up cookbook to Margaret Floyd’s Eat Naked, shows readers how they can create whole, organic, and fresh “naked” meals that maximize the natural nutritional value of food. Unlike commercially available prepared foods     and restaurant dishes, naked meals contain no harmful additives, preservatives, or empty-calorie fillers.


Readers who seek to control the quality of ingredients and nutrients in their food will turn to this cookbook time and time again for affordable, naturally delicious meals they can feel good about eating and serving to others.

EatNaked New Cover

Eat Naked is the genesis of years of learning, reading, seeking, and teaching about nutrition, cooking, and health.

No matter your dietary preference—vegetarian or omnivore, raw or cooked, macrobiotic, traditional, or modern—eating naked will only enhance the health benefits, simplify the process, and help you look great, even without your clothes on!

It’s time to enjoy “naked” foods—whole foods that are fresh and organically grown, prepared in ways that allow each food’s naturally delicious flavors to shine through. Margaret Floyd shows you how to choose the nutrient-dense foods that will make you look and feel so gorgeous, you’ll want to take it all off.


What people are saying:

“Eat Naked is full of convincing arguments and practical tips for cutting the junk out of your diet and replacing it with real food—which is exactly what needs to happen.” —Mark Bittman, columnist for the New York Times and author of How To Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food and The Food Matters Cookbook.

“Eating naked is not The Next Diet. It is The Last Diet. Purge your pantry and strip the junk from your shopping list, but beware: you will doubtless have to face the facts about your rotten little food habits. Mine was surimi.”
Nina Planck, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why

“Margaret Floyd’s Eat Naked is a clear and passionate call to nourish ourselves in a more simple, natural, and beautiful way. With just the right mixture of science and sass, Eat Naked delivers wise nutritional information that’s easy to practice. In a world overloaded with conflicting dietary facts and systems, Margaret Floyd gracefully distills some of the best strategies for vibrant eating and living.” —Marc David, author of The Slow Down Diet and founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating.

“Eat Naked is wildly intriguing. For all time, our ancestors ate food that was caught wild, grass-fed, fermented, unprocessed, whole, and natural. In the last hundred years, these necessary, nourishing human traditions have been lost, and we’re largely at the mercy of Big Agriculture and the food industry. Eat Naked is a food revolution book that sets you free and also sets you on fire—free to live a long, fertile, healthy life of personal responsibility without disease, and on fire, because real access to whole foods is the newest civil rights movement that affects us all. Eat Naked and thrive!”    —Mark McAfee, founder of Organic Pastures Dairy

“In Eat Naked, Margaret Floyd has created an easy-to-follow guide to optimizing your health. Drawing on basic principles, Floyd teaches her readers how to cook and eat for health, healing, weight loss, and for the pure love of food. Everyone should Eat Naked.” —Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of Integrative Nutrition

“This is a user-friendly, well-written book with sound and sensible nutritional information. The recipes are good, and easy, too!” —Annemarie Colbin, PhD, founder and CEO of the National Gourmet Institute in New York, NY, an author of Food and Healing and The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones

“Empowering, and simplified to a doable matrix, Eat Naked gets rid of the fluff and complexity surrounding locally sourced, home-prepared eating and puts it within reach of anyone. What a wonderful contribution to this movement.”  —Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms
