Clean Eats: Found Recipes

First world problem: Too many recipes to try, only one person to eat them. :)  You guys, there have been a plethora (ooh, fancy word) of new recipes lately by some of my favorite bloggers that I’m looking forward to trying! But alas, I am one girl with one tummy and only so much of a tolerance for leftovers.  Looking forward to my guy getting here, so that he’ll be my guinea pig!

Here is the short list of some that have caught my eye lately. If you try any, let me know!  They should also all be pinned on my Paleo & Clean Eats Pinboard, but if you click on the pictures it will take you to the owner’s site and recipe.

New Hotness Recipes to Try, ASAP! 

PaleOMG – Thai Chicken and Mango Fried Rice  I miss Thai food. More accurately, I miss Chicken Pad Thai. That sweet/salty sauce with all the noodles and bits of perfectly cooked chicken, tofu and fried egg is my idea of heaven. Going gluten-free/Paleo has been hard on my love of noodles. But I’m willing to try Juli’s version of fried rice with fingers crossed.

CarrotsNCake – Ultimate Post-Run Smoothie. I don’t know why I keep trying, because every smoothie I have tried to make with anything green has been a big, fat disappointment that tastes like feet. Yet I keep coming back for more. Tina of CarrotsNCake wouldn’t lead me astray, so I’ve marked this one as next to try. With only 7 ingredients and using frozen spinach instead of fresh, maybe I’ll have better luck in avoiding the feet flavor? We’ll see.

Civilized Caveman – George’s recipe for Pumpkin Pancakes may have been posted in 2011, but it’s new to me and sounds perfect for these upcoming Fall mornings.  Can you tell I’m SO ready for all things Fall and Football???  Must try these, soon!

Tried and True – Peach-approved recipes 

Kirsten Oliphant, AKA Kikimojo – Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps. Gotta say, I hadn’t really been a fan of ground turkey before this, but I think that’s because I was seriously under-seasoning. But DUH, Peach… As with any lean meat, you’ve got to season the crap out of ground turkey. Kiki’s blend of mexi-spices is not overly complicated and very tasty! Happy to report that ground turkey is now a regular for me and so are these turkey tacos.

Civilized Caveman – This recipe for Banana Bread is perfect for: bringing to parties, Fall days, making good use of turning bananas, or just because a warmed slice is SO good in the afternoon with a cup of coffee. Not to sound like THAT girl, but you really can’t tell it’s gluten-free. It’s amazing.

Clean Eating Magazine – This recipe for Curried Apple Chicken & Sweet Potatoes (below, with credit to Clean Eating) was hidden way down in a corner of the page in an article featuring ways to use unsweetened applesauce. I almost skimmed over it, but the curry and sweet potato caught my eye. I already make a Chicken Curry Crock Pot dish, but this one’s use of unsweetened applesauce and chicken thighs intrigued me. YOU GUYS, it was really, really good. I actually preferred the thighs to chicken breasts and I couldn’t believe how few ingredients there were, yet it made an amazingly flavorful dish. I devoured it, meal after meal and it didn’t get old. Two thumbs up from me!!

Thai Curry Coconut Shrimp with Broccoli  – This is a recipe I adapted from SkinnyTaste.com. It has very few ingredients, is super-quick to make and tastes deeeelish! My only blunder with these was buying wild-caught (good), frozen (because I have trust issues with my market’s seafood) vein-in (BAAAAADDDD) shrimp.  It took me for-f***ing-EVER to de-vein the little suckers and I now have a newfound respect for all Top Chef, Master Chef, and Food Network contestants who have to de-vein 200 shrimp in 30 minutes. Maddening, I tell you.  However, bitch-fest aside, this recipe is comfort food for me. Slighty sweet from the coconut milk, a jazzy kick from the curry (with which I am liberal), paired with broccoli and the shrimp? I was sad when it was all gone.

    • I love the Bacon Chicken Alfredo too, but haven’t tried the buffalo chicken yet! Yay. :)

  2. I am, admittedly, not the cleanest eater on the planet. My love of pizza, Mexican food and french fries prevents me from getting anywhere close to Paleo anything. BUT I make dinner at least 4 nights a week, and am always looking for interesting recipes to spice up our normal routine. My go-to lately has been anything I can do with grilled chicken (think, caesar salad, chicken fajitas) to take advantage of the grill/deck while summer is still around…

    • Isn’t having a grill wonderful? It’s on my list as one of the first purchases when my guy and I get settled in! With of course, him at the helm. This girl can obliterate some meat. 😀

  3. I’ve been trying to give up my take out habit, but while also not spending my entire evening in the kitchen cooking and cleaning. I’m going to try those chicken curry recipes and maybe the banana bread (not that it will help the dinner thing, but maybe my kid will eat it). AND I just stated following your Pinterest though I think I’m the worst Pinerester ever.

    • Then the crock pot is the way to go! And not to worry… you’ll soon be sucked into the black hole of Pinterest. 😉
