clean eating menu 4

I was thinking today that I haven't shared with you guys some great news...
We've decided to keep up whole food, clean eating, unprocessed diet
(Whatever you want to call it!)

In this post I explained my goals and reasons why.
Here are the results from goals.
1. I did lose (most of) the baby weight,but that could be because I am breastfeeding and chasing a toddler!       :)
2. I didn't get to exercise as much as I wanted to. I started doing yoga again but no running yet.. sad day. So I can't really give you a result for this one.
3. I BLEW the budget by $300! Eating healthy is seriously expensive! On the positive side I did have to pretty much recreate the fundamental cooking ingredients in my kitchen all at one time, so I don't think it will be as expensive every month. 
We shall see.
So far this month I have stayed in the boundary- keep you fingers crossed for me :)
4. I am SO much more aware of food labels now. I mainly shop the perimeter of the store. And if I can't say all the ingredients on the label or don't know what they are, I don't buy it.

Brent and I both agree that we feel so much better physically (ironically the whole family is SICK as i write this!) and about how Zadie eats.
So on this road we will continue. It has definitely  not been a simple  change but the more I learn the more   passionate about it I become.

So without further ado
here is our menu for the next bit.


and fruit

whole wheat crepes



Steak, veggie kabobs marinated in teriyaki sauce
and roasted homegrown red potatoes

This was a good dinner. I not a huge meat fan so steak night is never my fave.
I do LOVE roasted rosemary and lemon new potatoes though.

Quesadillas with the leftover veggies from the kabobs
Guacamole and chips

These were so very good.
I even made my own tortillas.
(Pictures/ recipe coming soon!)

garden vegetable casserole

Two positives:
1. It tasted WAY better than I expected.
(I am not generally a casserole fan)
2. I used up the leftover veggies that did not fit on the kabobs
(yay! for no waste!)

Greek fajita with tzatziki-sauce

(because we are addicted!)

whole wheat pizza packet


dark chocolate whole-wheat brownies

Apple slices with peanut butter dip
apples with peanut butter dip

This was a tonight sweet tooth recipe addition! It definitely fulfilled my desert craving. I already decided that this is my new baby shower go to finger food. It is seriously delish!

Wanna came for dinner? I would LOVE to feed you and have a nice chat.
As always if you wanna join me or have some good recipes to share, let  me know!


Linking to these great parties!


  1. We were kinda forced into clean eating when I had to give up eating gluten. You've got some recipes posted that look pretty tastey! I'm totally gonna snag em! Thanks for sharing.
