Week of April 15th, 2013

This week we are doing the advocare cleanse again (we did one last year at this time). We like doing it once a year to get rid of toxins and waste, jumpstart our metabolism, get back to better portion sizes and break our sweets addition. My good friend Emilie sells it if you are interested in getting your cleanse on! (

So our meals were simple:

Taco Salad (ground turkey, black beans, over lettuce)
Salmon (Lemon, Rosemary), Grilled Zucchini, Brown Rice
Grilled Chicken/Onion/Pepper Kebabs (Cilantro,Lime,Cumin), Asparagus, Brown Rice
Turkey Chili (Black Beans, Diced Tomatoes, Turkey, Veggies)
Chicken Stirfry (Liquid Aminos), Brown Rice
Sliced Turkey Breast, Grilled Veggies, Quinoa
Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps (onion, peppers, green beans,spices)

Week of March 25th, 2013

Shredded Mexican Pork

Community Group

Mark and Jessie out to eat with Laramas, kids had quesadillas. Toulouse Petit was amazing. We will have to go back again. Gumbo, jambalaya, homemade gnocchi, cauliflower truffle soup with fresh crab, beignets....mmmmmmmmmm

Fajitas (with steak from double d meats)

Baked Potato Soup- made this for meal swap this month. Gotta have one more hearty soup before the cold weather is officially over!

*Smokey Bean Soup with Ham- Emilie's soup from last month's meal swap

Easter dinner- ham, mashed poatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, rolls, and cake!

*Dave's Killer Bread Sin-Dawgs- SO good. Chrisse made one of these for us when I had pneumonia last year. I've been thinking about them since and decided to try to make them myself. I found vital wheat gluten in the bulk section at Fred Meyer. It is a multi-step process so I would recommend making them on a weekend :)
