We had this meal for supper tonight and today was a very long day.  I suspect that I’ll be much faster at making it next time but it was relatively easy to prepare and most of the items I have on hand on your average day so it works out well.  I did catch myself short though – I forgot to buy kale at the grocery store yesterday so I used spinach instead (the chopped frozen kind) and it turned out just fine.

Clean Eating 1Sorry – no picture of my own finished product this time.  But check out the cover of the March/April 2010 issue of Clean Eating and it looked just like that!

It was all rush rush rush tonight and we ate dinner in shifts.  It didn’t take too long to throw together at all – which is great!  Even better, my son enjoyed washing the veggies for med – which is ok by me since it tends to be ‘two for the pot, one for him’.  It’s a win win situation.  For the second week in a row, I had all of the ingredients on hand AND this time I don’t even have any substitutions to list either!  Look at me go!

Ingredients:

I have to admit, I’m not exactly sure what puts the ‘Island’ in these Island Paradise Bean Burgers but I was really curious to see how these would turn out as I’ve never even had a veggie burger before!

Hopefully I’ll impress you when I say, I actually had all of the ingredients on hand this time!!  The only situation I had this time around was the beans.  I had beans in my cupboard, sure, but it was a bag of dry beans.  I have a confession: I’ve never cooked dry beans before!  I know, it’s killing you – you want to ask, why, then, did I have a bag of dried beans?  Even more odd, I also have a bag of white beans in my cupboard.  Uh huh.  Yup.  Makes all kinds of sense, doesn’t it?

I figured all you had to do was cook the crap out of them so, Read the rest of this entry »

I got this recipe from the March/April issue of Clean Eating.  It is so easy to prepare!  Since I decided to prepare them at the last minute, there was no time for me to go to the grocery store so as per my usual lately, I had to make some substitutions, which I’ve noted below, and I did let my husband check to see if they were done while I was feeding my daughter.  The problem with this is that his version of done is quite different from mine – so they were a little over cooked.

I served it with simple roasted potatoes, green beans, broccoli and grilled red pepper.

The picture below is what it was supposed to look like – the picture from the magazine.

Ingredients:

  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/4 cups whole-wheat panko
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 flank steak about a pound, trimmed of visible fat
  • 3 oz spinach leaves
  • kitchen string

Tonight was the night to make this weeks’ recipe.  I have to admit that I was pretty upset with myself for not having read the recipe thoroughly before picking it however it all worked out in the end.

My husband, on the other hand, is not fond of tomatoes (go figure – he likes tomato sauce, chili and even salsa) and there is what he would call a whole pile of tomatoes in these recipes.  It wasn’t hard for me to make sure that they would be easily pick-out-able.  Yes, that is a technical term.

Planning for this meal was somewhat lacking.  Ha … ‘somewhat’ might be an understatement.  I think my head was focused elsewhere and I ended up having to read the recipe like 7 times to get it straight – and even then, well read on. Read the rest of this entry »

Sweet Potato Oat Bars

Well.  I did it.  I completed the recipe for week one From The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged! book..  I have to admit, I was expecting something more granola bar-esque.  You know, as I know a granola bar.  And these were … well, not the traditional granola bar.  But then, I guess that’s why I decided to try the Clean Diet recipes, right?  They are more of a breakfast bar than a granola bar – which is how they are listed in the cookbook, I just noticed – duh!  Now, don’t get me wrong, as I tried a piece and was listing off my likes & dislikes and what I would consider changing for next time, my husband, who usually smiles and nods, looked at me and said, “I wouldn’t change too much about it.  It was pretty good!”  I’ll have to test them on my son in the morning – I’ll be sure to let you know how that goes.
