The Family Spring Cleanse

family spring cleanse

Are you tired of your children begging for junk food?

Does processed packaged food always seem to find a way back into your kitchen?

Are you feeling like you need to do a diet clean up?

Now is a great time to clean things up a bit. That’s why I am participating in The Family Spring Cleanse. I am super excited about this program because I have not seen anything like this before. Most cleanse diets are created with an individual person in mind but this program was created with the FAMILY in mind. It is safe for everyone to participate, has delicious kid-friendly recipes, and has a simple step by step get started guide.

Let’s face it, we’re moms, and we don’t have time to make separate food for everyone. That’s why this program is perfect for busy moms and their families. All recipes have been kid-tested so you don’t have to worry about trying to negotiate with your children to eat “weird” food.

Imagine your family happily eating nutritious whole foods and feeling satisfied with their new choices.

Here’s What People are Saying About Past Programs from The Holistic Mama

Getting Your Family On Board:

“I’ve been dabbling with real foods for a few months now, but your challenge has given me more focus. I could eat this way with no problems whatsoever; I was raised mainly on a real food diet. However, the rest of my family…not so much. I really wanted to show my daughter that there are many yummy options other than junk. Thanks for your daily guidance!” – Lisa Belles

Trying New Things:

I believe that this challenge has led me on a road to more discoveries. I plan to purchase only real foods from now on, at least the majority of the time. I will incorporate some items I already have in the cupboards (that are not real) until they are used up. A couple of new purchases that I have never tried before were coconut oil, chia seed and brown rice flour. There are so many new choices out there and I plan on continuing to try new items to see what I like and what I don’t. – Jodi Cooney

How I’m Using My CSA Box {Week of 8.1-8.8}

This week’s box was filled with many of the same things I’ve been finding in my box all summer: corn, tomatoes, lettuce, basil, green beans, summer squash, peaches, plums, and melon. Along with some things I haven’t seen for awhile like: beets, potatoes, and avocados!

I also added on a 20 pound box of peaches! So one of my main goals is figuring out how to use all of them when they ripen all at once! In the past, I’ve ended up freezing a bunch of them for use later in the year and I imagine I’ll do that again, but I also plan to have lots of peach filled goodness for the next couple weeks.

My recent plan has been to do my meal planning for the week after I pick up my CSA box on Wednesday mornings so I can plan my meals around what comes in the box. I like how it’s working for me. So here’s the plan for this week:

Tonight (Wednesday 8/1): Baked Pesto Chicken and Grilled Corn (Using: Corn)
Friday 8/3: Chicken with Rice and Green Beans (Using: Green Beans)
Saturday 8/4: Summertime Peach and Chicken Salad (Using: Lettuce, Peaches)–Recipe can be found here: Fresh: Nourishing Salads for all Seasons.
Sunday 8/5: Zucchini, Black Bean and Rice Skillet (Using: Summer Squash)
Monday 8/6: Gingery Chicken with Peaches with Roasted Potatoes (Using: Peaches, Potatoes)

And for the rest of the Bounty:

Avocados: A favorite lunch for my kids is avocado toast so I imagine that’s how the avocados will be used. But I also know I will have some leftover corn, so I might be tempted to make this Grilled Corn Avocado Salad, which will use up some of the basil as well.

Or, we could end up using the leftover corn with the potatoes on Saturday morning to make this Sweet Corn Hash.

Peaches, Plums, Melon: We’ll end up eating most of this fruit throughout the week–my daughter eats fruit like crazy!

20 pound box of Peaches: As I mentioned, I’m sure I will be freezing some of these peaches for using later in the year in smoothies and other dishes, but I also have dreams of making at least a couple of these delicious looking peach recipes:

Meal Plan Monday {10.10.11}

Once again, I had to switch things around last week…partly because I needed to use up some produce that was reaching the end of the line and partly because I got to go out with the girls one night (yay!)…so I didn’t end up making the Coconut Chicken Soup or PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps–you’ll see them on the line up again this week. I did make (again) the Autumn Herbed Chicken with Fennel and Squash (because I needed to use up the fennel and squash before it went bad) and a new recipe, Pakastani Kima, that I was dying to try.

MondayCrock Pot Chicken Taco Chili (never ended up making this last week)
Wednesday-Today’s my baby’s birthday! We’re making pizza and I’ll also be making these Carrot Cake Cupcakes. (My friend Kara made the ones pictured above for Isaac’s 1st birthday last year and they were so good I decided to have them again this year!)
Thursday-Dinner Party with friends! I’m bringing dessert…not sure what yet.
Friday-Coconut Chicken Soup from Nourishing Traditions (originally planned for last week).
SaturdayPF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps (originally planned for last week).
SundaySausage Zucchini Bake (a new favorite around here!)

I’m participating in the Plan It-Don’t Panic Meal Planning Challenge over at Keeper of the Home.

Meal Plan Monday {10.3.11}

Monday-Leftover Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup (frozen from last week)
Tuesday-Omelets and Potatoes with Magic Sauce
WednesdayRestaurant Style Meaty Marinara Sauce (pictured above)
ThursdayGrilled Rosemary Buttermilk Chicken
FridayPF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps (This is a new recipe for me but I’ve been wanting to try it for awhile…I love PF Chang’s Lettuce Wraps and I’m hoping these will turn out just as good!)
Saturday-Coconut Chicken Soup from Nourishing Traditions (another new recipe I’m trying)
SundayCrock Pot Chicken Taco Chili

I’m also planning on trying out these Pumpkin Muffins for breakfast one day this week.

Meal Plan Monday {9.26.11}

This week I’m taking it easy on myself and doing lots of crockpot recipes…we’re going out of town this weekend so I know it will be a busy week preparing to leave. I love my crockpot!

Monday-Leftovers from last night (Autumn Herbed Chicken with Fennel and Squash)
Tuesday– Omelets and Potatoes with Magic Sauce (This is a new recipe I’m trying for the first time this week, but I’ve always loved everything I’ve tried from this website.)
WednesdaySkinny Crockpot Chicken Wild Rice Soup
ThursdayCrockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup (I’ll freeze half of this and have it next week when we get back from our trip, so I won’t have to worry about making something on the night we get home.)
Friday-Out of town until Monday…so no more meals planned until next week!

Meal Plan Monday 9.12.11

I’ve been meal planning for a while now…because that’s the kind of girl I am. I love planning. I love list making, etc. etc. I’ve been toying with the idea of posting my meal plans here and since Stephanie at Keeper of the Home is doing a 6 week Meal Planning Challenge, I thought now would be as good a time as any. I use Plan to Eat and love it. I have almost 250 recipes on there, so if you’re on there too, be sure to add me (kjeldy) so we can share! Or try a free trial for 30 days. I’ve included links to all the recipes on this week’s meal plan. Enjoy!

Monday: Mango Salsa Chicken (pictured above)
Tuesday: Black Bean Tacos
Wednesday: Grilled Rosemary Buttermilk Chicken
Thursday: Gnocchi and Sausage
Friday: Dinner at Mom’s (Thanks Mom!)
Saturday: Out
Sunday: TBA (My husband’s out of town for the weekend…that’s why the weekend looks a little bare.) Next week we’ll have a more complete meal plan!
