Once You Go Clean

I feel like I've been introduced to a whole new level of taste since eating clean. I didn't really notice it until this weekend though. Not only have I been eating clean, but I've also been pretty committed to buying Farmer's Market fresh and organic produce. This has been my way for almost three months now. But this weekend the kid went to the grocery store and bought some food, including apples. I was hungry, and an apple's and apple, right?


One bite into that grocery store, non-organic apple and I wanted to spit it out. It tasted almost plastic, fake. I couldn't believe that a poor apple could really be so tasteless. But I was hungry, so I ate that plastic, fake tasting apple. But half-way through it, my stomach turned into a knotted, cramped mess. I was so sick! I mentioned something to the kid tonight at dinner about it and she looked at me and admitted that she had gotten a stomach ache from eating the apples too!

It just goes to show you how desensitized our bodies become to the crap, the wax, or the sprays or whatever. But after you rid your body of all that junk, it doesn't want it back, not in the teeniest tiniest bit.


Salmon and Spinach Pasta

yummy! super easy and super fast...

2 salmon fillets (i buy the individually packed/frozen fillets)
1/4 pound whole wheat pasta
1/2 bag fresh baby spinach leaves
2 tsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. McCormick Perfect Pinch Mediterranean Herb Natural Seasoning
1 clove garlic, pressedPrepare pasta as suggested on package.
  1. Sprinkle herb seasoning on both salmon fillets. Grill salmon or cook in skillet in 1 tsp. olive oil until done. Remove from pan
  2. Add another tsp. olive oil to skillet and add pressed garlic. Add spinach leaves and saute until wilted.
  3. I usually get 3 meals out of this. If you want to do the same, cut up salmon fillets and add spinach and salmon to pasta and separate into equal portions.
