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....

What's in the Fridge One Dish Chicken
Last night I couldn't decide what to make with the chicken breasts that I had bought. I had a bunch of veggies, but wasn't in the mood for a stir-fry (and I knew my kids wouldn't eat that anyway), so this is what we had. You could do this with a variety of vegetables and seasonings...whatever's in your fridge!
3 or 4 chicken breasts, cut into 1-2 inch chunks
2 handfuls baby carrots
1 bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 onion, cut into 1 inch chunks
2 zucchinis, cut into 1 inch chunks
garlic and onion powders
Preheat oven to 350 and toss all ingredients into a large roasting pan. Toss to coat. Roast for 15 minutes, stir and roast for 15 min more. Take pan out and carefully pour out juices. Turn up the oven to 400 and roast for 5-10 minutes more, so that it gets more "roasty".
