Eat clean – day 25!

Can’t believe I’m almost there.  Day 30 is so close!  That being said, I am not stopping there.  Just going to continue this lifestyle.  Once you get rolling it’s hard to stop.  I have felt so great these past 30 days!  I have not been perfect but I am definitely close.  I have had 2 cheat meals in 25 days and a third one on its way this weekend.  I also treat myself to coffee with a little cream everyday.  It is my lifesaver.  OK, enough of the rambling, let’s talk menu.  I have had super great feedback on chicken fried rice, jambalaya, kung pao chicken and turkey breast in the crockpot.  What have you liked?  Need some feedback.

Meal 1:  Black bean soup (add shredded chicken) – revisions to this recipe are as follows:

1.  Use frozen corn (no sugar added) instead of canned corn

2.  Use organic black beans

3.  Use organic/clean tomatoes (Krogers had these on sale this week!)

4.  Add shredded chicken if you want some meat (my husband cannot eat soup without lots of meat!)

Meal 2:  Spaghetti with meat sauce – I made up my own recipe for this sauce.

1.  4 cans organic tomatoes

2.  2 lbs ground Jennie O turkey

3.  1/4 chopped fresh basil

4.  1 pepper – diced

5.  1 small onion – diced

6.  Olive oil

7.  salt and pepper to taste

8.  Garlic – 2-3 cloves

Pour oil into pan and saute the peppers, garlic and onions.  Add turkey and brown in pan until cooked through.  Puree tomatoes in food processor then pour into crockpot along with the meat mixture.  Add basil.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Serve over whole grain spaghetti noodles.

Meal 3:  Thai Coconut Shrimp


Snack idea:   Cranberry oatmeal and chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies – both are awesome!  The first recipe calls for Chia seeds.  You can find these at whole foods in the bulk section.

Time to get cooking!  Give me some feedback!
