An Inside Look at The Clean Plate’s Seasonal Cooking Class plus a Recipe!


2014/11/16 by nikkiledford

Book Club Fun!

I had the pleasure of teaching a Paleo and Seasonal Cooking Class to a gorgeous group of women. We talked a lot about autoimmunity, the importance of healthy fats, how to get the best value out of grocery shopping, ingredient alternatives, supplementation, “fad” diets, the “cholesterol myth”, how to make the holidays food healthy AND simple. So many tips, tricks, and delicious dishes!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
