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....

Crock Pot Pork Roast with Apples and Onions

Another Crock Pot meal!  I just wish that the apples hadn't fallen apart so much.  Maybe I'll try bigger pieces next time. I think some golden raisins would also be nice.

4 lb Pork tenderloin, trimmed
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp sage (I used dried)
2 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
2 onions, sliced
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup chicken stock

Combine garlic, salt, black pepper, ground mustard, and sage in a small bowl.  Place sliced apples and onions in the bottom of a crockpot.  Place pork on top of apples and onions and rub pork with the spice mixture.  Pour vinegar and chicken stock around the pork.  Cook on low for 6 hours.
I served mine with roasted Brussels sprouts and mashed cauliflower.
