Clean Eating Link Up

Clean eating isn't always easy.  It takes some dedication, planning and sometimes a lot more prep time.
I was so excited  to see that Mama Laughlin and Skinny Meg were hosting a link up!  I could use new recipes to my clean eating mix!
And to show that clean eating doesn't always have to be difficult, I have a few recipes we use that are delicious and simple.

Here are a few I love

- The no-brainer TACOS.  You guys all know the drill, lean ground beef, whole wheat tortillas (someday I will make my own, on my list of things to try) and your favorite veggies.  I use the following recipe for my taco seasoning. The recipe is for 1lb of meat but I just make a bunch at a time and keep it in a big shaker.

1 Tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper





Okay I know not everyone believe you should eat potatoes, but if you are a potato eater, these are delicious!
Crash Hot Potatoes


Stuffed Pepper Soup
I don't even like Stuffed Peppers but made this for the hubs and tried some and actually really liked it.  I left out  the sugar and used brown rice and it was still delicious!



Slow Cooker Chicken and Broccoli (no cream of whatever soup)

Chicken Stir Fry 
Here is my favorite clean eating website as well if you haven't ever heard of it.

There are so many recipes and even one for clean Chocolate bars!  I didn't know those two things could ever belong in the same sentence.  I haven't tried them yet but hoping to get a chance to make them in the near future!

Good luck to all of you on the cleanse!
