So, I started this whole "clean eating" thing back in February 2011, after being really intrigued about a plan called the Whole30 . I decided to give it a go, but quickly realized that I needed to make it more adaptable to the way that our family eats and lives. I like my glass of wine at night. I don't think a piece of gum is going to sabotage me. I think that a DQ Blizzard is a good thing every once in a while. If my friend makes the most awesome jalapeno poppers you've ever had, you know I'm going to have one. But I also know that I feel pretty darn good when I'm eating quality proteins, fats, veggies, fruits and nuts, while leaving out dairy, grains, legumes (including soy and peanuts) and the big one, sugar, at least most of the time.
Here are some of the ways to do just that....

Shallot and Caper Vinaigrette
This is really good as a salad dressing or a dip for veggies.
2 cloves garlic
2 TBS capers
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 TBS mustard (any kind without sugar)
Blend (preferably with an emersion blender) until smooth.
