Going low carb right before the holidays can be a brilliant plan for avoiding holiday weight gain. I recently shared my Clean Eating Eggnog recipe on Facebook and that got me to thinking about how I would enjoy this drink without all the carbs for Christmas. If you have a thermometer, the temperature you are looking for to kill Salmonella in the raw egg is 155 F for 15 seconds, according to the FDA Food Code.
And the fun part for college students is, you don’t have to have a stove to make this. And for those of you cooking at home, this is an easy way to feel good about the food you are putting on the table. Spread the cheese over the tortilla, then layer on the onions and corn, and finally the olives and any other filling you wish to add. Return the quesadilla to the pan you sauteed the onions in and cook over low heat, flipping once or as needed, until the cheese is fully melted.
Transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board, cut like a pizza, and serve with toppings of your choice. And just think… some people believe that clean eaters munch on raw spinach and cabbage all day. If there is one recipe that would help somebody become a believer in clean eating, it’s this one. Also note that the sharper your processor blades are, the easier time you will have achieving an almond butter consistency, and the less oil you will likely need. I was feeling pretty domestic last week with the weather looking more like fall or winter than like summer.
I have to tell you that the number of servings below is a big guess on my part because Mini Chef dived into this before I could measure it.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, buttermilk, cinnamon, sucanat (if using) and lemon zest (if using). Whisk well to combine and pour the mixture over your bread, being sure to cover the bread as evenly as you can.
Just recently, Trader Joe’s opened a location near my home, and having never been to one before, I had no idea what to expect. In a large mixing bowl, combine prepared kale, cabbage, onion, edamame, strawberries and blueberries, mixing thoroughly.

In a small mixing dish, whisk together dijon, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and honey until smooth. Hi, I'm Danielle, and I am the author, photographer and recipe developer behind The Lean Clean Eating Machine. There is very little that I enjoy more than making amazing food for a small group (I don’t feel the same when it comes to big groups!) of friends and family. I was just looking in my cupboard and found a tin of red lentils, and once I saw this recipe, my excitement grew!

It can also be an overwhelming challenge because you still want to enjoy all your holiday favorites with family and friends.
Christmas is a big holiday at my mom’s house and usually comes with a buffet of delicious, not-so-clean foods that could tempt the gods. Please note that all opinions are my own and I will only endorse items which I truly feel are of value to my readers. Leave out the pumpkin spice and it would be like smearing peanut butter cups over your toast in the morning. The older I get, the more I appreciate eating food that is easily cooked from scratch instead of made by some factory.
He will love something the first time he eats it, and then it’s all downhill from there.
It’s done when you cut into the french toast to the bottom of the crock and there is no liquid left. Trader Joe’s is a colorful and quirky atmosphere, full of unique products you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere. The combination of fresh strawberries, blueberries, red onion, purple cabbage, shelled edamame and kale really compliment one another, providing you with an abundance of antioxidants and vitamins all in one dish.
I love this, I have been craving berries on my salad but I am not willing to give up kale yet! I’m gonna do it a little differently with purple kale, edamame, sweet onion, green onion, strawberries and a few pear slices. Here you will find my natural, whole food recipes that I have created for those who are looking to leave artificial foods behind, without sacrificing taste in the process.

A And I love how the cold weather brings everyone together for big family dinners and warm nourishing meals. A Serve it with a hunk of high quality, beautiful, homemade sourdough bread and a simple salad of arugula and onions and you’ve got yourself a Sunday meal to swoon over.
I tweaked it a bit by adding garam masala and stirred in chopped kale and a tin of chickpeas at the end.
I am trying to eat meat only once a week for all kind of reasons, and to find something vegan that is so delicious is just great.
In fact, I’m still not sure if going this route at this time of year is a sign of pure genius, or pure insanity. Simply saute the corn and onions with the oil in your coffee pot (it won’t be as thorough as a pan, but in a pinch…) and then finish the whole thing in a microwave! So I got all excited when he loved the bread, warm out of the oven with a little bit of peach butter on it, but then got a little less excited the next day when I realized his love affair with this bread was over.
Since I had errands to run that day, I just popped it into the slow cooker and let it cook. I just cut what was left while it was still in the crock (with my spatula), and I think I got a pretty good guesstimate.
While we have only been less than a handful of times due to the large crowds that seem to accompany any new store, there is one particular buy we found that just can’t be beat.
I'm a Health & Weight Loss Coach, Founder of Clean & Delicious TV (on YouTube) and a Mom of two. Maybe it was the smell of it baking that got him into it, but either way, once it was a day old, he was completely over it.
But because I had to guess, I didn’t feel comfortable sharing nutrition data on this one.
Trader Joe’s Organic Tuscan Kale is pre-cut, pre-washed, ready to eat and a total time saver. Thanks for the idea, I really like that your dishes are uncomplicated and realistic for busy Mums.
