Clean Eats in the Oven

It’s been a little over a week since we started avoiding processed foods & ingredients we couldn’t pronounce.  I wish I could say that I have more energy, but I don’t.  It’s not the foods fault though…my son doesn’t sleep.  Apparently it doesn’t matter how well I eat or how much coffee I drink, I’m constantly in a zombie-like state.  Oh the woes of motherhood lol

Anyways, I’m excited to share some easy, clean recipes that my family has fallen in love with!  When we first started this clean eating journey, my husband & I were most worried about our snacking habits.  Potato chips were and still are our go-to snack of choice.  Making our own chips was so much easier than I imagined; time consuming, but easy.

I literally just sliced potatoes with my mandolin, let them soak in water for 20 minutes to remove excess oil & lined them on a baking sheet.  I brushed them with melted coconut oil & sprinkled them with sea salt.  I let them bake on high (400 degrees) until they started to brown, about 20 minutes.  I can’t wait to try this with sweet potatoes!

I love to bake & I’ve found some pretty tasty, all-natural recipes for breads & muffins that my family has fallen in love with!  Click on the links below to try them out for yourself!  When making the muffins, I substituted almond milk & vanilla Greek yogurt rather than nonfat milk & plain yogurt.  The texture was a little drier than the muffins we’re use to, but they tasted great & there was no guilt!  I also doubled the recipe, since 6 muffins would not have lasted long in our household.
