Clean Eats Lately

Frozen yogurt made of peaches and banana

This is a little bit of a random post.  A few things compiled into one.  Remember that frozen yogurt made from bananas?  Well I told you I would share if I came up with any good combinations.  Banana and peaches is pretty spectacular.  Find out how to make it using this strategy I shared.


I have also been preparing all my vegetables in advance.  I cut them up after coming home from the store and they are ready to snack on or use for meals all week.  I have also been adding a quarter of a cucumber, two cut up pieces of celery, and spinach into my shakes (like my protein shakes or my Crystal Light, yogurt and fruit shakes) now that we have a Vitamix.  It is really helping me get more veggies into my diet and the Vitamix does such a great job at pulverizing everything into a wonderful smooth treat!

Cut up vegetables so they are ready to eat!

I am doing the same with chopped veggies that are used to cook with.  My favorite combination right now is butternut squash, zucchini, carrots, and onion.  I chop it up and roast half of it and freeze the rest for later.  For roasting I toss them with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and roast at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  I then top with some cooked chicken for lunch or add chicken and quinoa for dinner.  I like a little dash of cumin on it too.  Sooo good.

Easy recipe for roasted vegetables.

So that is what I have been eating lately.  Any good clean eating tips or tricks you want to share?

  4. I always try to stock up on veggies like this for the week. It's always so much easier when you can just reach in the fridge and grab a baggie instead of having to prepare something in the morning!
