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....

Thai "Satay" Sauce

I used this to bake a mahi mahi fillet in (sorry I don't have a better photo!), but I think that there are probably a plethora of things that this could be used for--chicken, beef, shrimp, even a dipping sauce for vegetables.

Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp fresh grated ginger (I like to keep a nugget in my freezer and use a micrograter to grate as needed)
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 shallot
2 TBS almond butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup coconut milk
cumin and curry powder (maybe 1/2 to 1 tsp of each, depending on your taste)
Combine in an emersion blender (or any blender) until smooth.
