Never fear, though, I knew at some point I would have to go to the store, and we would have to eat, so I finally got this done! You may recognize some of the recipes from recent weeks. Seems that I didn't quite get them made yet, so I just keep pushing them to the next menu! One of these days, Alice!
The Southwest Quinoa Wraps are actually a quinoa salad that you can eat with chips, by itself, or in a wrap. I like the idea of a wrap, and am looking forward to this dish! (I also promised a Facebook friend that I would include a vegetarian option with lots of protein... and the quinoa salad is it!) The brisket also looks extra yummy (although not at all vegetarian), and I am anticipating there will be plenty of meat left to make sandwiches another day.
I met a new friend today and was sharing with her about clean eating. Speaking with her reminded me that I like to challenge people who think this is hard or restrictive to tell me a food they like to eat, and I will do what I can to find a comparable clean recipe. Because of that (and because my most popular recipes seem to be desserts!) I have also included the recipe for MR's Oatmeal Awesome Cookies and my current favorite Raw Thin-ner Mints. These thin mints are very similar to Girl Scout cookies, but are clean! And best of all, you can make them in just a few minutes. I am totally not kidding!

Besides cookies, here's what we plan to eat this week!
Onion Potato Soup and pita bread - When will I ever get this soup made? Maybe this week.
Shepherd's Pie - MR makes this. He still hasn't shared his recipe with me (he works more hours than I do!) but the one from our friends at The Gracious Pantry looks yummy too... so just use hers for now!
Black beans and rice - This recipe is listed in the blog linked. Good stuff! And so fast, if you remember to make the rice ahead of time!
Southwest Quinoa Wraps - I haven't made this yet but it is full of ingredients I love, so pretty sure it's a winner!
Beef Brisket au Jus and roasted potatoes with truffle salt - Did I tell you I bought truffle salt this week? Well, I did! And I am trying to find ways to use it. It's kind of expensive, but just use it to finish a dish, not to cook with like you do regular salt.
Roast beef sandwiches - That brisket should made some amazing leftover sandwiches! I love repurposing food into something we really want to eat. Although you know me... I don't mind eating leftover anyway!
What are you eating this week? Whatever it is, Keep it Clean!
