Foodie Friday: Food Lover’s Cleanse

, , Leave a comment

One of the fun things about doing this blog with Linz is that we do not often coordinate our individual posts and they are a surprise even to each other. I am just as excited as the next person to see what Linz is going to be talking about for Foodie Friday. I quite enjoyed when we coincidently posted two Foodie Fridays in a row about our love (mine!) vs. hate (Linz) for pie crust. Anyone who regularly reads the blog knows our love for soup can get a tad out of control in the winter. It seems we are once again on the same page and Spring has awaken us to a focus on healthy eating. I have been making many of my meals and snacks from Bon Appetit’s 2012 Food Lover’s Cleanse. It is a two week challenge to eat tasty, healthy meals. But here’s the thing I really love about it, you can just pick and choose the meals you want to cook. I’m not doing the cleanse in its entirety (this is not a diet folks), it is just a nice tool to get me back on track to eating more of those veggies and whole grains I know are so good for me. Plus, I’m always looking for better snacking ideas (string cheese, we have been friends for too long). Above I tried day 7 dinner of braised greens with leeks and orange-scented bulgar. This bulgar dish would also make a great alternative to oatmeal for breakfast. What healthy dishes for Spring have you discovered?
