Cleaning Up

It seems that a lot of us are cutting back on sugar and cleaning up our diets for the start of the new year.  Count me inspired and on board!  It’s great to read your posts and comments and your dedication has helped me make these last few days my CLEANEST days of the year.

Florida 2004


With our trip to Florida only 1 month away, I have bathing suits on the brain!

So…I was thinking that it would be good to go look back through the LWYD archives and find some of my favorite clean and satisfying meals to share.  This will hopefully inspire me to get going with meal planning in the new year.

  1. My husband must NEVER see your blog. He will realize what an incompetent women he married!! Now if I could somehow slip these recipes under his nose and get him to make them, I will be sitting pretty!! 🙂

  2. Ooh, I LOVE this roundup of clean eating meals! I especially love the veg stuffed peppers. I was a HUGE fan of stuffed peppers growing up, + I’ d love to try a new, healthier twist on the traditional meaty version. Excellent idea!

  3. Ohhh these recipes look excellent. Will definitely be stealing a few of these for our house! I agree though… after the holidays we were eating a veggie / tofu stir fry for dinner and both of us were just like, “OMG it just feels SO GOOD to eat normal food again!

  4. Love your blog! 🙂 Those look like some awesome meals. I have a trip coming up in a couple months that I should totally start to use as motivation to eat healthfully. My favorite clean recipes are broccoli with a little cheese, asparagus, sweet potato, and salmon!

    • Thank you! I didn’t even know I had it but thought it was perfect and positive when I came across it this week. It’s from a family vacation a few years back. I hope you are having a nice start to your year!

  5. Baked pumpkin oatmeal – yum!!
    I’ve been experimenting with baked oatmeal a lot lately, that will definitely be my next attempt!
