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 downright awful for you. But now, I do it very occasionally, and I read 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!

sweet bacon wrapped chicken breasts

A while back, I remember that Paula Deen once made this Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken recipe, and I tucked it away in the back of my mind as something I needed to experiment with. I made a few healthier changes, and the recipe turned out fantastic. It was so quick and easy to prepare, and it requires just a handful of ingredients – all of which you probably have on hand at any given time.

pumpkin black bean soup

I cannot even begin to express how delicious this Chipotle Pumpkin Black Bean Soup Recipe was! I know it’s officially spring, the weather is getting warmer, and the last thing we want is a hearty pumpkin soup to remind us of the cold weather season. BUT…this soup is absolutely worth it

cilantro grilled chicken

We’ve been having some lovely weather over the past few weeks, so I convinced my husband to bust out the grill and cook up some of these Thai-inspired Cilantro Grilled Chicken Breasts for me. This is such a simple low calorie marinade recipe that adds such tremendous flavor and moisture to the chicken.

spinach mushroom lasagna

Spinach and mushroom lasagna is one of absolute favorite dishes. It’s loaded with good for you ingredients and is so cheesy and creamy. But aside from the fact that this dish is made with healthy vegetables, most traditional Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna Recipes can be loaded with extra fat, calories and carbs.

baked taquitos

If you love crisy, fried taquitos or flautas, then you are going to LOVE today’s low calorie Baked Taquitos Recipe. Recently, I came across this Baked Chicken and Spinach Flautas Recipe at Healthy Delicious, and thought this was amazing idea. Why have I not thought of this myself!?

goat cheese and shrimp pasta

In yet another effort to get my kids to eat more vegetables and to try new foods, I whipped up this Shrimp and Goat Cheese Pasta Recipe last week and was overjoyed at how delicious it was! At just 6 Points per serving, you get a mouthful of wonderful flavors that combine so perfectly. The goat cheese, basil, and garlic combination is absolutely delicious.

Tilapia has always been my favorite fish to eat. It’s very low in Points, and it is so delicate and mild tasting, which makes it a great canvas for lots of exciting toppings and sauces.

This Artichoke and Parmesan Tilapia Recipe is very simple and takes just minutes to prepare. Yet, it is so flavorful and light.

This is a great healthy fish recipe to make when you are having a busy day and not much time or energy is left to put into cooking dinner.

Each delicious serving is just 3 Points, which leaves plenty of extra Points on hand for dessert, or maybe a more carb-heavy side dish like roasted/mashed potatoes, or a pasta salad.

This is definitely a great tilapia recipe to keep on hand for when you need dinner in a pinch. Enjoy!

ground beef and cheddar casserole

When you want something beefy and cheesy, look no further than this Ground Beef and Cheddar Casserole Recipe. It is excellent. And 7 Points per serving is quite a bargain for what you get. I also feel like this casserole is really filling and satisfying…probably because it addresses all of the things I crave most: meat, carbs and cheese.

chili glazed salmon with siracha cream sauce

I haven’t always been a big fan of salmon, or any other fish that, well, tastes like fish. But it many instances, I have had salmon prepared a certain way so that the fish flavor was barely there, and the sauce was just so amazing, I would have eaten just about anything that was covered in. This Chili Glazed Salmon with Sriracha Cream Sauce Recipe is one of those instances.
