I’ve Been Clean Eating

Hi guys! I am really excited to share with you about a new cookbook that I bought this week. The link to purchase it will be at the bottom of this post.

I have followed this lovely lady (blogger Katie Farrell) for sometime now and tried a few recipes here and there. Lately, I am feeling the effects of getting close to 50 (mostly mental) and decided that I want to try this “clean eating” thing.

I have been making one of her dinner dishes for the last three nights and eating a big salad for lunch each day. Starting the day out with three eggs and my cup of coffee.

Now let me tell you that I have been having headaches for the last month everyday! Not fun at all. Trying not to take many meds for it because that’s not good for you. I realized last night after dinner that I have not had a headache for the last three days! Coincidence? I am thinking not.

I have not had any refined sugar (using organic coconut sugar) and I think this has made the BIG difference. My stomach doesn’t feel all bloated and the family is LOVING every meal. That is huge for me.

I will share some pictures with you from my kitchen. Seriously, easy! My goal is to make it seven days in a row and then go from there. I will let you know how it’s going.

Strawberry Coffee Cake. Perfect timing for this recipe with fresh strawberries coming out. I enjoyed this even better after it had been in the refrigerator for a while and was nice and cold. Great with your eggs for a protein packed breakfast.

I need to get some white dishes to cook in. Please excuse this picture. It doesn’t do this beautiful coffee cake any justice at all!

One of the easiest recipes ever! Sweet and Sour Crock Pot Chicken. Put it all in and “fugget about it!” Leftovers are amazing on top of a big salad for lunch. I love recipes that make enough for the next day.

Fresh veggies are added an hour before you are ready to eat. I cut them all up and put them in a ziploc…then they were ready to go.

Look at all that protein and fresh veggies! We enjoyed ours on top of some organic brown rice. Quinoa would be a good choice, too. Did you know that as we get older our bodies need MORE protein? Will help you heal faster, too! I hope your mouth is watering and ready to try her recipes. Take the challenge with me! I don’t feel deprived or like I’m on a diet…it’s a lifestyle change. Let me know how you feel and which ones you tried. I have provided the links below for her website and the cookbook on Amazon. If you have prime you can get it faster and start right away!
