This rhubarb compote recipe creates a delicious and versatile summer spread, and it is especially perfect on the 21-Day Clean Program, where we can’t have strawberries, the usual companion to rhubarb.
This compote is uniquely spiced and perfect as both a sweet and savory accompaniment. I’ve used this rhubarb compote recipe on waffles, ice cream, chicken, and lamb. Don’t be afraid to experiment in the kitchen. Using what’s available at different times of the year can make us come up with some amazing flavor combinations that we might not think to try otherwise.
Summer is in full swing, and that means the kids are out of school and enjoying beach adventures, road trips, visits from friends, and celebrations. There are lazy summer mornings as well as jam-packed days. This means we need fuel for these unpredictable summer days, and these almond flour waffles are my absolute favorite solution. These almond flour waffles are fun, celebratory, and are perfect for family brunches, breakfast for dinner, unique desserts, and you can even freeze them to use as needed for snacks on-the-go. They only require a waffle iron (available in many different sizes and prices, I’ve seen them for as little as 20 dollars), and they hold a variety of toppings. You can put the toppings right inside the waffles as we’ve done in the recipe below.
Our chocolate mousse is a crowd pleasing sweet treat that’s also packed with nutrition. It’ll be a hit wherever and whenever you serve it. If you keep the main ingredient secret, almost no one will guess that it’s avocados that give this chocolate mousse body and creamy texture. Watch kids scarf it down and ask for more, not realizing there’s actually green goodness in it...and plenty of healthy fats to keep the body energized and metabolism fired up. This chocolate mousse is a perfect dessert or snack that’s great for the skin, nails and hair too. All around yummy.
This broccoli salad recipe makes a perfect light meal. It’s a quick and easy side dish that’s easy to digest due to the marinating process. You can also steam or saute the broccoli too. Anyone with thyroid issues will want to cook these vegetables first. I tend to like my broccoli steamed, which makes this nutritious powerhouse bright green and soft. The method for this broccoli salad recipe is totally up to you. Either way, we know you’ll enjoy this antioxidant packed salad.
Everyone loves burgers, whether they are beef burgers, chicken burgers, or made out of another animal protein or vegetable. Juicy and flavorful, there aren’t many foods that satisfy quite like they do. But many of us may be trying to cut back on overall red meat consumption, or we might be cleansing on the Clean Program and are avoiding red meat for a certain amount of time. Do we have to give up burgers? Heck no! This chicken burger recipe (make them with turkey if you want) makes a crazy delicious meal that is also healthy. These chicken burgers provide our bodies with necessary protein and healthy fats, while making our taste buds really happy. Top with caramelized onions and we have a meal that’s sure to satisfy the whole family.

Try this steamed fish recipe for lunch while cleansing on the Clean Program. En papillote is the French term for the method of preparing food by steaming or baking it in parchment paper. You can also use aluminum foil, but I love how pretty and crinkly the parchment paper is; it gives the meal an aesthetic that is pleasing to the eye and it creates a beautiful presentation when serving. I love how many possibilities this method of cooking gives you for this steamed fish recipe. I’d love to hear what other meals you prepare en papillote, so feel free to leave your comments at the end!
No need to deny a craving for nachos while cleansing on the Clean Program. This healthy nacho recipe is quick to make, works as a filling lunch, and has a delicious bite that’s hard to resist. The cashew cheese gives you lots of protein (and is a great alternative to dairy cheese), but if you want more, try adding shredded chicken. When we’re not cleansing, these nachos make a great healthy snack, especially if your family loves eating gluten and dairy-free snacks for movie nights or for watching the game on Sunday afternoons. No matter what the occasion, these healthy nachos are a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
