Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

Beef & Snow Peas...YUMMY!!!

So last night I did a repeat...I made Pioneer Woman's Beef w/Snow Peas...DELISH!!!

Most of this meal is clean...I did replace the cornstarch with arrowroot & the soy sauce with Bragg Liquid Amino and I omitted the chili peppers and the wine since this is not allowed with Feingold.

Let me tell you...this sauce is so to die for, I am in love with it.  We served it with organic wild rice & green beans!!!

You must try this recipe!

Apricot Glazed Shrimp w/ Snow Peas

So tonight's yummy dinner was from the new copy of Clean Eating Magazine and I adapted it a bit...This is a ST2 Feingold friendly meal also.

Apricot-Glazed Shrimp w/ Snow Peas
Serves 4

6 oz chinese noodles
1 tbsp olive oil (original recipe called for Safflower oil)
1/2 cup minced white onion
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs shrimp (original recipe called for scallops)
1 1/2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup all-natural apricot preserves
2 cups fresh snow peas
salt & pepper  to taste

1) cook noodles according to directions and set aside

2) heat oil in skillet, saute onions, garlic & ginger for about 2 minutes.  Add in shrimp (or scallops) and cook until pink.

3) in a small bowl mix soy sauce & preserves

4) when shrimp are just about done, toss in snow peas & sauce and cook all the way through.

5) serve over noodles

VERDICT: very nice...the shrimp & apricot are a nice combo.  I can see this also being good with chicken.
