While many may think that this would make for really bland meals, I am finding what I am now going to call PURE DELIGHT in the rich, but simple, pretty much, unadulterated flavor of clean food.
I really have trained my taste buds to uncover this Pure Delight. If there is even a smidgen of salt, my taste buds (and many times my head--headaches) get overwhelmed.
Finding this Pure Delight makes it super simple to stick to my eat-clean lifestyle AND enjoy my meals! Shay Shay is and has always been (since the days in my grandmother Omia's kitchen) a FOODIE!
To give you a sense of this Pure Delight let's look at my lunch out with my colleagues yesterday to Miller Union--www.millerunion.com. I was tempted to pass because I wanted to get back to my tighter clean eating after about 7 days of vacation, but I enjoy getting out of the office with my group. Passing--especially on a beautiful Friday afternoon was not really going to happen. I had to make it work.
I contemplated eating at my desk prior to leaving and just getting tea--maybe a salad--at Miller Union.
Instead of "being weird" I decided preview the restaurant menu and determine what I could work and then called the restaurant to ask if they would be able to accommodate me.
Of course they could!
I chose the trout from on entree, the green beans from another, and the farro (after being told the butternut squash already had been prepped in butter)-- ALL with NO BUTTER, NO OIL, NO SALT!
I absolutely enjoyed it AND stayed on plan!
