A Clean Attempt at WIAW

It’s Wednesday! We are halfway through the week my friends.

Let’s get right to it and talk about some of my amazing eats from this week.

A week ago, I decided to drop refined sugars for a while. I know how much inflammation refined sugar causes to my body, and I wanted to give my body a rest from that madness. Check out this post about how I kick the sugar addiction. I still enjoy sweets but in the form of fruit and natural sugars like organic honey.

Besides the sugar thing, I have really cleaned up my diet again. I’m limiting my processed food intake, going crazy on the fruits and veggies, becoming more aware of my protein intake, and overall just trying to keep my food intake very balanced. It’s amazing what even a week of good clean eating can do for a person! I am feeling great and less bloated.


Those banana almond bars that I made for Valentine’s day are already gone! They were definitely enjoyed if you cannot tell. This is why I can’t keep any type of sweet in the house! At least they were healthier than a pan of Special K bars (oh how I love Special K bars–-Katie).

This random stir-fry I threw together last night turned out AMAZING! It was sautéed onions, red bell pepper, and mushrooms with a cooked veggie burger and quinoa thrown in the mix. I topped the dish with hummus and was one happy girl.

This salad that looked a lot prettier than it tasted. You win some, you lose some. I couldn’t figure out why it didn’t taste good because I’ve made a nearly identical salad before and absolutely loved it. I guess I wasn’t in the right mood.


Thai lettuce cups with peanut sauce and mom’s homemade chicken wings!

I went through three napkins and really did a number on this dinner. So good!

Homemade almond crackers. I made two different kinds: salt and pepper and rosemary and garlic. They both turned out great!

As always, smoothies are still my go-to breakfast choice. I’ve been going through quite a few brown rice tortilla and peanut (or almond) butter wraps. Organic raw carrots. Cashews. Raisins. Dates.

LOTSA good food!

What have YOU been eating my nutty friends?

Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW!

      I think it might be my least favorite food group. I tend to gravitate towards peanut butter and almond butter or beans, but I am trying to incorporate more eggs, meat, and kefir!

    I can’t believe that salad didn’t taste that good. It looks amazing, I’m going to try it soon. Perhaps even today!

  3. There isn’t much that is better than Special K bars – for some reason they are a super staple and I hardly ever make them in the winter. Those banana chocolate bars look pretty yummy. I am pretty much trying to eat my body weight in fresh pineapple every day while I am here in Maui! Looking forward to getting some fresh coconut today too.
