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....

Hide the Veggies Meatballs
I am hoping to get my girls to eat the clean stuff that I make--other than broccoli, green beans and carrots, veggies are hard to get into them (well, at least my older one). Let the great disguise begin!
1 lb organic ground beef
1/2 zucchini, shredded in food processor
1/2 shallot, shredded in food processor
1 baked (super soft) sweet potato, mashed
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper
Combine ingredients and shape into balls. Place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until cooked through. I served mine over spaghetti squash and marinara.
