She has some amazing recipes and tips.

However, my advice. Continue eating what you like, but just chose appropriate porportions. More veggies, less pototatoes! Voiding preservatives and processed food will do amazing things as well. Cutting out the obvious like chips and refined sugars. 

I did a seven day cleanse, and it was fantastic. I lost 7 pounds in one day, and that was backed up stuff, you  know? And i felt fantastcis. I try to do this one a month or every two months, just to get that extra boost of health. Here is the link:

I have tried different cleanses before, for health purposes not weight and this was by far the best one! I actually enjoyed it!

@Katie918:  Fiance used to be a meat and potatoes guy.. We’re down to one red meat meal a week and up to 3/4 meatless ones. It’s possible to convert them ๐Ÿ˜‰

I started small and worked our way up. Meatless crockpot chili was the first meal I convinced him was good enough without beef. And then I taught him all the things we can do with chickpeas. And now we go wild. Quinoa, lentils, beans galore. The only thing I haven’t sold him on is tofu haha. I don’t even like it much anymore so oh well!

Here’s a list of staple go to meals for us:

Chickpeas: 1. roasted chick peas, beets and sweet potatoes. 2. No butter chickpea (like butter chicken but with chick peas and no butter!) 3. Falafels 4. Chickpea stir fry 5. Chickpeas annd rice

Chicken: 1. Baked chicken and fried rice 2. Chicken with teriyaki sauce(homemade(and wild rice and vegetables 3. Whole chicken in the crock pot (use leftover bones for souP) or stock!) 4. BBQ (homemade) chicken with sweet potatoes.

Beef: 1. Tacos (homemade seasoning!) 2. Homemade hamburger helper (its sounds to good to be healthy but it can be!) 3. Homemade burgers 4. Meatloaf

Other stuff: orange teriyaki fish, curried lentils, quinoa pilaf. 

Theres more where that came from! One day I will digitize all my recipes. It’s on the list ๐Ÿ˜›

@Katie918:  Top sirloin with the fat trimmed off, try to keep it around 6-8 oz each, I grill these and serve with baked sweet potato fries and peas with pearl onions.

I also like to prepare 1/2 cup rice (uncooked) in chicken broth, steam broccoli and cook two boneless skinless and cubed chicken breasts in chicken broth, a half clove of minced garlic, ginger, 1/4 of a cup of low sodium soy sauce and a tablespoon of honey.  Put it all together and you’ve got a stir fry bowl!

If your husband is a “meat and potatoes” kind of guy, I would transition slowly! My husband used to eat fast food and all that crap, and now he loves tofu and eats vegetarian with me a lot. Some of my go to meals are pasta with veggies and chicken or soy sausage, light-on-the-cheese veggie and bean quesadillas on whole wheat tortillas, baked sweet potatoes with fish and a veggie, lentils and pita bread, etc. Basically just try to get some protein, whole grains (carbs are not your enemy!), and lots of veggies!

@Katie918:  I bought some small (baby) potatoes, those roasted in a little bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt is a really good side dish. I actually had some for breakfast with my egg whites…I sometimes use them as a side dish with baked salmon (drizzled with olive oil, lemon, salt). 

Another staple of mine that I like is stuffed bell peppers. I use ground chicken (but ground turkey or beef work too), add some onions, season to taste and bake them with cheese. Really tasty.

Hope that will add somewhat of a variety into your menus. I think a lot of it has to do with portion control too.

One of my very favourites is a cabbage roll recipe from Martha Stewart. Google it!  It’s made with pork and beef, but you can make it with turkey and pork or even all turkey. Seriously, my favourite thing to eat!  I also always swap out the white rice for either brown rice or quinoa!

Katie918:  for the last 2 months, our house has been 100% paleo/clean eating with the exception of 1 cheat meal a week. we eat a ton of meats and veggies. the only potatoes we eat are sweet potatoes. one of our favorite meals is taking large mushrooms and wrapping them with bacon and baking them in the oven. so yummy! we usually eat those with a side salad. we do get bored from time to time because i feel like i eat chicken all the time!
