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....

Ellen's Easter Potatoes

For some reason, I had never thought about adding sweet potatoes to my mashed cauliflower until my friend Ellen recommended it.  The result takes care of that slightly watery thing that can happen with just cauliflower.  It was delicious!

1 large head of cauliflower
3 sweet potatoes
1 tsp coconut oil
S&P to taste

Bake whole sweet potatoes at about 400 degrees for at least an hour (or until nice and soft).  Steam cauliflower until very soft as well. Place both (peel the potatoes first) in a large bowl and add coconut oil.  With a hand held blender, puree until smooth.  Add S&P to taste.
