Good Eats

Another by-product of feeling great on the SGN trial has been the energy (and interest) to cook again. We have been trying out some new recipes from Clean Eating magazine which use a lot of ingredients I like. Though, I think I secretly want to be a food stylist. I like the "plating" part better than the actual cooking.

Halibut and Cabbage "Tacos" on Organic Sprouted Wheat Tortillas

Coconut Lime Chicken with (too much) Citrus Mango Salsa

Grilled Steak with Green Beans and Yams

Turkey and Cilantro Sandwich with Heirloom Tomato Salad

Caprese Pasta with Toasted (aka burnt) Pine Nuts and Basil

They're not all winners, but it's been fun trying out the recipes. This week we also test drove Raspberry Mint Mojitos on Catherine and Stefan who gave them the thumbs up (we've been making them since you guys left). It'd be a cryin' shame for all that mint to go to waste.
