Lately, I’ve been really into the whole “Clean Eating” phenomenon because I really do think that eating “cleaner” foods (i.e. foods that are not processed, made with artificial ingredients, etc) is not only the way to serious weight loss, but also to much better health. I’m not perfect…and I still enjoy some junk food, some fast food, and some foods that are just down right awful for you. But now, I do it very occasionally, and I real labels on EVERYTHING. Feeding my two children has made me an advocate for their healthy eating habits, as well as my own. So, I’ve been trying some new clean eating recipes and working on creating my own Weight Watchers Clean Eating Recipes. The first I tried was this Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Portabella Mushrooms from The Gracious Pantry. I altered it just a tiny bit to give it more flavor, and I have to say, I was blown away at how tasty this turned out! It was so simple, and yet so delicious. My picky husband enjoyed it too, and I loved serving such a healthy meal for the family. And each serving was just 4 Points +! This will definitely be made again and again. I highly recommend giving it a try. Enjoy!
