What's Cookin' at My House

In nine months, my family is moving back to the USA from Germany. 

I'm so sad that we have to leave Europe. I love it here. 

What's not to love? The food, for starters. Take a look at a few of the reasons I love Germany:

Do you see why I need to watch what I eat so I can lose some weight before I move? This and so much more is everywhere! So I announced to my family that we're going back to eating clean and ditching the gluten. 

My oldest (a high schooler) doubts me. She said, "yeah, right. I've given up on this family eating clean. We've tried so many times."


But she's right! We do. We start out strong and finish weak. Usually, our healthy eating ends with a quick run through the McDonald's drive thru line. 

Something about her doubt fuels my fire. I'm determined not to give in, and not to give myself a reason to. I'm determined to find easier, tastier, clean eats for my family and me. 

Here goes week one. 


Grab & Go Egg White Bites
Egg & Avocado Toast
Oats with berries and honey
