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....

Quick Shrimp Curry
I had these ingredients on hand, so this is what I came up with for dinner tonight. Quite yummy!
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined (mine were pre-cooked)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, sliced
5.5 oz can coconut milk
1 TBS Green curry paste
Saute pepper and onion in a small bit of olive oil until just beginning to brown. Add shrimp, season with S&P and cook until pink. Add coconut milk and curry paste and stir well. Simmer for 5 minutes.
I served mine with Roasted Curried Cauliflower.
