The Clean Slate Day 21 and a Recipe


2014/01/28 by nikkiledford


Savasana in the Sun.

It’s been 3 weeks! Only nine days left 🙂

As I mentioned yesterday, my gym is starting a 30 day Fitness Challenge today! During the kick-off meeting, I got a lot of questions about SNACKS.

For those who feel stuck on what they should eat between meals, I’ve compiled some great suggestions and pics of good clean snack items! Click on some pictures for recipes. Also, check out a past post I did about snacks.

Clean Eats

Breakfast: Lively Smoothie (haha, that’s my name for it because it gives me crazy energy; mental and physical) See below for recipe.

Lunch: 4 oz. smoked pork butt with guacamole, plantain and cucumber chips

Snack: Cracked Pepper Real Stick jerky, Pineapple chunks

Dinner: 1 Chili Lime chicken patty (trader joes) with 1 c. shredded parsnip and sweet potato, 1/2 avocado


Lively Smoothie

1 banana, frozen
1/2 c. frozen wild blueberries
handful spinach
1 c. almond milk, more if needed
1 inch chunk of raw grass-fed liver, frozen
1 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of salt

  1. When you purchase the liver, make sure it came from a grass-fed, organic cow. The liver is the body’s main filtration organ for toxins… healthy cows = healthy livers. Wash the liver thoroughly and freeze in chunks or freeze whole and cut off a piece for the smoothie.
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Drink! (I PROMISE it does NOT taste like liver… or anything meat-related)

One of the highlights from #blueberryparty weekend was this Almond Butter and Blueberry Bread Pudding.
Gluten free Almond buttter and Blueberry jam sandwiches, chopped up with banana, fresh blueberries, eggs, and coconut milk. Easy! 💙🍞💙🍞💙🍞💙 #unreal #somanynoms #glutenfreebreadpudding ☮️❤️🌿
Peace, Love, and Kale... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me and sweet baby Atlas. I got out of the house this morning and went straight to yoga and then to get my fav smoothie from @projectjuice Let the birthday festivities begin! My little man turns ONE on Monday and we are celebrating with a blueberry picnic tomorrow. Complete with Mango Blueberry Salsa and blue corn chips. The first of many yummy Blueberry-themed noms. 
#blueberryparty #atlasjacobledford #yearoneofatlas MOTHERHOOD// I'm a little embarrassed at the lack of impressive food posts lately.
As Atlas has begun to eat more food, I find myself just munching on things while I prepare his meals, never really sitting down to my own. Breakfast is some eggs and berries. Lunch, some deli meat and @primalkitchenfoods mayo with a banana and almond butter. Dinner usually includes a quickly grilled piece of meat atop some lettuce greens and any chopped veggies and quick dressing. It's not glamorous at all, definitely not "Instagram worthy".
It's just real life right now and I'm hoping to get into a groove pretty soon and get back to  creating mealtimes instead of surviving them. I mean "surviving" in the best possible way. My kid loves to eat real healthy foods and it's so fun to explore this new part of his day. My creativity is taking a big hit though and I long for some real thoughtful meals at my dinner table with my main man.
Until then sausage/salsa/lettuce wraps will do.
