Hey! Look what I made (with some help from my talented husband)!



It’s a tiny cookbook featuring the ten most popular recipes on the blog! Would you ever buy anything like this? I feel like there are so many cookbooks out there, but I just love leafing through the pictures, getting inspirations, and having my recipes on PAPER instead of a screen. I can’t be the only person who feels this way…

Well, since you’re stuck with The Clean Plate on a screen (for now), here’s a super fun and incredibly easy Paleo version of a lunch-time favorite.

I often hear complaints that it’s difficult to comply with a paleo diet when you’re
“on-the-go”. Well, I have a great solution for this problem! This is a fantastic way to have your typical lunch-time sandwich, without the bread. Just use your deli meat as the wrap and hold it all together with some parchment paper!


Italian Sub Wrap

1/4 lb. each of your favorite deli meats like:
roasted chicken

Other Fillings:
Roasted bell pepper
sliced tomato

Dressing/Dip for each wrap:
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
sprinkle of dried oregano and black pepper

  1. Layer and stagger the meats on a large square (have a point of the square facing you … like a diamond) of parchment paper.
  2. Add fillings on the meat, leaving room on the margins to roll (see below)
  3. Using the corner of the parchment paper, lift up the long edge of the meat and roll the meat over the filling like an enchilada (don’t roll the paper into the meat roll.
  4. One the meat is rolled up, fold the parchment over and tuck the sides in like you’re rolling a burrito.
  5. Using a sharp knife (do not use a serrated knife if you don’t want paper pieces in your wrap) slice diagonally down the middle of the roll.
  6. In a small bowl, mix oil, vinegar, and spices. Pour over wrap when ready to eat!

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 🥑🍋🌶🥒
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. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ 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!
