Clean Eating Recipes

Happy Summer! We have been on vacation the past couple of weeks to Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. We had a blast seeing family and friends. We also got to see my sister get promoted to Captain in the Army - we are so proud of her! We had a wonderful week in Florida at a Marriott Vacation Club in Orlando for a week and got to experience Disney World for four days and LegoLand for a day. What a blast we all had and really focused on staying cool in the pirate pool at the hotel in the afternoons when it went up to 100 degrees! So hot! I must say my favorite part of our FL vacation was seeing our kids' faces light up when they watched the performances or while riding a ride. The Magic Kingdom Electric Safari Parade and the light show on Cinderella's castle were amazing and ended with fireworks! We have made such nice memories.

Well, as with most vacations, we did not eat as healthy as we could have. So, once we got home I have placed us all on a clean eating diet! Here are a few recipes we have tried. I hope you enjoy them - they have simple ingredients and are very flavorful, and healthy!
