The Healthy Chicken and Mushrooms Recipe for When You Are Busy

Posted by cleanteam

Sometimes we want a really great meal without all the hassle of a complicated recipe. A simple, yet fantastic recipe like our healthy chicken with sauteed mushrooms and spinach, can be the most enjoyable meal. It’s super easy to make, has very few ingredients and tastes delicious, what more could we ask for? We topped our healthy chicken with a vegetable medley full of Phytonutrients, creating a cleanse-friendly and delicious grain-free dish.

What Makes Our Healthy Chicken so Healthy?

We bake our chicken in this recipe, which is a great way to ensure that all the spices and natural flavors will absorb into the chicken. Baking also makes it moist and flavorful, without having to add any extra unhealthy dips or sauces to the chicken. Chicken is packed with essential nutrients that our bodies need, without most of the unhealthy qualities of other meats, such as red meat (which isn’t allowed on the cleanse). Chicken is packed with protein and phosphorus, helping us to build stronger bones and muscles. It also contains vitamin B and vitamin D helping to boost our immunity and increase our calcium absorption.

We Topped Our Healthy Chicken With a Nutrient-Rich Vegetable Medley

Our vegetable medley pairs well with our healthy chicken and adds an extra kick of good-for-you nutrients. We use spinach as a rich source of iron, which helps in the production of red blood cells in our body. Along with being a great source of iron, spinach is full of vitamin A and vitamin C.

Mushrooms have some amazing health benefits and are even used in some holistic medicine practices. Mushrooms contain beta-glucan, which is  great for your immune system, helping to protect us against  colds and the flu. Along with being filled with antioxidants and nutrients mushrooms add texture and savory flavor to our healthy chicken dish.

The Best Baked Salmon and Asparagus You'll Ever Have!

Posted by cleanteam

I’ve been happy beyond words to see wild sockeye salmon and local spring asparagus at our neighborhood market recently. This means there’s very little discussion about dinner lately — baked salmon and asparagus. We’ve been feasting on the most incredible melt-in-your-mouth salmon, loaded with healthy omega 3’s and antioxidants. Local is always best, but with fish it can be tricky. I prefer to buy wild salmon from Alaska than farmed fish in my own area, and when I make that choice, I’m sure to source everything else locally. When the salmon are running here in the Northeast, then of course we’ll choose that. I suggest weighing the pros and cons and making the choices that feel right for you, in all things.

This recipe works well with any fish or whatever vegetables are in season where you live, but this this baked salmon and asparagus combination is a true winner, and I highly recommend trying it at least once!

This Is What Healthy Chicken and Waffles Looks Like

Posted by cleanteam

Incorporating last week’s gluten-free waffle recipe, here’s a complete meal that shows just one of the many ways you can use those versatile (and yummy) waffles. Our healthy chicken and waffles recipe is a Clean twist on the classic Southern meal. Usually served fried and covered in syrup, we’ve made this version entirely suitable for lunch on the Clean Gut Cleanse, by baking the chicken instead instead of frying and using coconut for the breading. And of course the waffles are gluten-free. This meal is packed with tender and juicy protein for some seriously healthy chicken and waffles and incredibly delicious grub. Hope y’all enjoy.

Vegetable Fries Made Easy With This Quick Recipe

Posted by cleanteam

One of my favorite foods are these baked root vegetable fries. They’re a wonderful alternative to regular french fries, since carrots and parsnips are less starchy than potatoes and are loaded with extra nutrition.

Fun fact: did you know that carrots were not originally orange? They were purple, white, red, yellow and black. The Dutch began hybridizing red and yellow together in the 16th century to make them the orange that we all think of now. But those original colors have more antioxidants and are generally less sugary than the newer orange ones, so I recommend finding heirloom varieties at your local farmer's’ market for the vegetable fries recipe. You can also look for your own heirloom seeds when planning this year’s garden.

You can use any color carrot in these vegetable fries, just be sure to include the parsnips; they make the perfect combination.

These are deliciously addictive, and as a bonus, because carrots were also viewed as aphrodisiacs in Middle Eastern countries, when you share them with someone you love, they’re even better.

A Soup and Sandwich Combo That Will Make You Happy

Posted by cleanteam

These two recipes together create a unique twist on the classic soup and sandwich combo. Parsnips come with a variety of nutritional benefits, including fiber, vitamin C, and folate. The vegan-friendly chèvre sandwich uses macadamia nut cheese, which is soft and with a texture similar to goat-cheese. The nut cheese doesn’t melt like cheddar, but this is no loss — it’s absolutely delicious. Prep the sandwiches while the soup is cooking. Wait until you’re reheating the soup before you grill the sandwiches, that way everything will be warm and ready to serve at the same time. The soup is perfect to have on the 21-Day Clean Program, but this soup and sandwich combo is great anytime. Enjoy.

The Best Lamb Taco Recipe for a Clean Lunch

Posted by cleanteam

Spring is the season for local grass fed lamb, and for omnivores this is one of the healthiest cuts of meat you can find. We offer this cleanse and allergy friendly version of a favorite meal — tacos! Local high quality lamb is the best for these tacos (yes, it does matter where our lamb comes from and what it was raised on!). In replacement, we can also use organic chicken, turkey or even fish (although I’d hold on, as we have an amazing fish taco recipe coming soon). Vegetarians can make these with sauteed mushrooms or your choice of beans. Endless possibilities, all of them delicious and nutritious, so dig in!
