Low carb food list options?
February 6, at 5: Thank you for all these great ideas and information. Available applications now include identity, travel documents, drivers license, health information, an electronic wallet, ATM bank-card, public toll-road and transit payments, and public key encryption infrastructure. If this is your first introduction to the Atkins diet, then you may be asking yourself, what is this diet? Target made the decision on April 30, that it would try to implement the smart chip technology in order to protect itself from future credit card identity theft. It would make you my favoritest cousin in the world!
So why choose the Atkins diet plan over all the rest?

Trying to get my family to start eating healthier and make it a habit for us. Just found your blog! Could you please email me the shopping list for this? Thank you so much!! Could I get a copy of the grocery list as well, please?
Can you email me the shopping list? I would love a copy of the shopping list also. I really need to kick my behind in gear and this is the perfect start!! This will be my very first EVER attempt at clean eating! Would you mind emailing the grocery list to me?
Thanks for all of the hard work! Hi, I am new to your blog and would love to get a recipe list as well! Also, did you ever get an ebook done? I have been reading your blog for awhile! You are so fun! Can you Emil me the list? Old habits die hard! Thank you so much for sharing all your knowledge. I live the clean meal plan! Could you please email me the shopping list? I am new to this and think your blog is great. I feel the same way, but am struggling to get started.
May I have a copy of your grocery list also? Could I get a copy of the grocery lost also? I love your blog! Thanks for keeping it real! I would love a copy of the shopping list, please! Hi, can you email me the list as well! Could I get the shopping list too? Just saw this on pinterest!! Love the concept of clean eating. I look forward to trying these recipes for my family. Can I please get the shopping list as well.
I wish I had found this site before and hope that I am not too late and that this site is still active and current. Thanks for what you have shared on here Melissa, I greatly appreciate it. I would love to be on your mailing list if you have one.
The blog is totally alive and well! Hope you keep in touch lady! I just mailed you that shopping list. This meal plan looks great! I am enjoying your blog.
I too cannot afford to buy much organic, but I feel like if I am making bread, muffins and cookies from scratch, that is much better than store bought products. Thank you for making me feel I am making good choices for my family.
I love this and all the effort that you have put into it. I would of loved it in an ebook that I would be happy to pay money for, so that everything is all in the one, instead of having to get the recipes from different areas. I have just found you, and feeling very selfish! Curious… what would you pay for a lot of info and maybe 30 killer healthy recipes in one place? Do you have any thoughts?
It would be awesome to have these recipes and grocery list and your comments! All in one place. Thank you for all your hard work and caring for your children and our world! My sister and I just turned 50 twins and we are re-committing ourselves to eating more wholesome foods. We both do gardens and my husband and I raise a couple of beef cows each year. This is the first place I have found that takes a more realistic approach to healthy eating so thank you very much for that.
I have found that if no one in the house including yourself is going to eat those whole wheat, greek yogurt muffins that taste like dry cardboard, then why are you making them? So trying to tweak my old recipes just enough to make them more healthy but still eatable. Thanks for the great comment! If we get a little more land they are first on the list for sure!
Can you please send me list too? So do you want to come and move to the real desert and be my cook? Cause I hate cooking. It would make you my favoritest cousin in the world! I needed this post today after falling off my healthy eating bandwagon! I think we are so similar in so many ways and I love that I found your blog!! We do the best we can, when we can. And my son likes to use that on me when asking for doritos at the store. The price for organic is nuts!!
And in this house we eat a lot of peppers! I tried to grow my own in our garden, but of course, all the pepper plants died. Everything else is happy and healthy, growing strong, but every single pepper plant died! Another thing…we are getting backyard chickens soon! I think we would be friends if you lived near me. Sorry for this long post, but I just had to share. I looked it up though and someone already has that name. I just followed you on Pinterest. I am still alive and pretty well….
All are pretty well also… I am not saying that we do not have the occasional chronic illness strike back in the day people did too and they lived shorter lives and I am not negating the impact of GMOs and toxic chemicals in our foods… But get real there is no way with our population numbers and living arrangements that everyone could eat perfectly…. Some are thankful to just eat… I am of the generation that was told to clean our plate , there are children starving in other countries….
This is so true. I love how you all think. My motto is very similar…Do the best you can with what you have and be thankful. Besides, we live not by bread alone…. The truth is, with the average American diet, our children can expect to have shorter life spans than their parents. But eating smart doesnt have to be incredibly difficult or time consuming.
That is why it is inspiring to see Blogs like this: Love your blog, and do ot be disheartened by nasty individuals who just have to be know it alls …. I have seen people who are supposed to be eating clean and healthy post toxic recipes full of pre packaged condiments etc. I also recently went to a Natural Health Food Store opening and found them stocking Atkins products among other pre packaged food products it is all about money.
I just got done yummy ideas for recipes. This is awesome and very practical. Melissa I love this!!! I am going to look into this more as it is something I really want to do and I love that you have a meal plan figured out with the recipes — awesome! I just stumbled upon your blog and will definitely follow you. Look forward to reading more! Your comment made my day!
You are exactly what I have been looking for! Someone who gets how I feel about artificial and processed foods. Thanks so much for the love!
I am really enjoying your menu so far! I needed help incorporating more vegetables and whole grains into our meals, and your recipes do just that!
Thank you so much for the recipes!! Thanks for being real and using real ingredients! I have three young daughters. I never knew there were so many chemicals in foods. My mind set is the same as yours and now that I found your blog I have motivation to stick with clean eating. We are on a very tight budget and its crappy that the foods I want to feed my family tend to be more expensive.
We do have our own garden but this is the first year and we are still learning! So anyway thanks for your blog and for being real about life!!!
Any particular brand you would recommend? Thanks again for the post! Thanks for the post! I really appreciate this idea of clean eating. I have thought others are just too time consuming, costly, and not practical for my family. But thinking old fashion the way grandma used to cook I can do! Thank you for all your hard work and vulnerability in putting this together and making it available to strangers on the web out of the goodness of your heart!! Thanks also for bringing grace and a budget friendly perspective to clean eating.
Got here from your first post, via pinterest. This post is amazing. We are a family of six with 2 picky eaters in the family. I just have one question for you. What is the average food bill for the two weeks? So I think in the end it all comes out in the wash. What do you think? Thank you and congratulations on the pregnancy. Melissa, is there an easy grocery list or do you just go off the recipes as far as what you need?
As a full time working mom I try to do the best i can. Some time the ratio is higher on the not so good end but that is okay. I would like to start grinding my own flour and making bread at home. Is this the recipe you always use? Do you have a link? Thanks so much for pointing that out! Found it on Pinterest when looking for clean eating recipes. I also have a lot of game meat in my freezer and plan on trying your chili recipe. Im super excited I found your site. Woohoo for game meat!
So there should be some other recipes for you too. It takes dedication, planning and home cooking. I really like your approach to eating healthy with kids. My dad decided I needed to lose weight when I was a kid and he refused to buy peanut butter. So thank you for sharing how you balance and shape healthy eating habits. It is absolutely impossible to have a child and not allow for junk.
Thank you soooo much for your post!!! Thank you for this post! I am almost 8 months pregnant and I never cook! Your recipes are nice and easy to follow! I cannot wait to begin trying these and sharing with my husband! I do try to buy organic especially with the recommended produce, meat and dairy. Thank you thank you thank you for these meal plans! Thank you for these meal ideas and encouraging posts! We are so in the same boat! You just have to do the best you can where you are and it sounds like you are doing just that!
Thanks so much for the kind comment, it made my morning! What is your weekly or biweekly budget? I love this blog. Aksi did you ever get the grocery list done? A woman after my own heart! I feel like those things make me destined for failure or feeling bad about myself. I am excited to try your plan AND eat real cake on my birthday!
For my family this is something that can be totally attainable. I just know that this will work for my family much better than trying to go cold turkey. I need backup meals and snacks ready.
I appreciate all the effort that you shared with us. Hard to imagine people wasting time leaving rude comments. If I disagree with blogs, I just close the browser and move on. Keep on doing your good work and know many are thankful for your gift. I am looking for something other than sugar to cook with. I have tried Agave and Coconut sugar. Hey, I just found your blog via Pinterest and it really intreages me. My son was diagnosed with type one diabetes last year and I am always looking for a better way to feed my family.
I am so happy I found this! Easy and budget friendly recipes that my whole family can enjoy. I feel like people get so wrapped up in what they believe about food that reading posts like this is often unpleasant but yours is realistic and welcoming. Its nice to find blogs like this.
Thank you so much for sharing all this information! There is no way eating clean involves eating any form of product that comes from an animal!!!!!!! This is the very first clean eating menu that I will actually eat most of the meals!
So excited I found your page!! We live in western KS so not many health stores and what we do have is very expensive!! Just popping in to say how much I love your blog. I have tried some of your receipes and they are great. Your comment totally made my day… I called my husband just to tell him about it! Just came across your blog and wanting to get into eating clean and would love also to have the grocery list emailed.
Thank you for putting this all out there! Thank you so much for taking the time to type this out for other mommies who want to feed their families whole, natural, and yummy meals. I know I really appreciate it!! Take Care and God Bless! Thanks for all of your hard work of putting together these recipes for all to consume and enjoy!
You might want to read the Wheat Belly Cookbook, it seems that whole wheat is not as good as we all thought.
Will try some of your recipes that are wheat free though. However, I was wondering if there was a good shopping list for all this?
I want to try it, and would be fine with searching through to find all the ingredients needed, but calculations are hard and it would be a ton of tabs. Thank you for sharing. We raise pigs, rabbits, and even had two emu we raised and butchered up. Raising your own meat is great and taste so much better than store bought. Thanks so much for all your suggestions and encouragement, for a beginner at eating clean. Three months in and I am a little weary.
Your blog really gave me a pick up and offered hope. Can I have a copy of the grocery list please??? Thank you soo much. My husband and I have four children, two boys, two girls. The boys both have autism- one very high functioning and one low functioning. The behaviors are what get us, and I hear just cutting out all the junk really helps with that.
Hi I saw your 2 weeks clean eating plan. And I find it interesting. Can I have you a copy of the grocery list pls? I am new to all this and I need some guidance to start cos I am so clueless. I want to start eating clean and staying healthy. And thank you for your time, hard work and for posting to help people like me eat clean.
If you created a grocery list I would love to have a copy. I would love a list of shopping items. New to this, and going to try to get my family into it. I absolutely love your philosophy on food. Thank you for all the fantastic looking recipes that i absolutely cannot wait to try!
I have been meaning to try a clean meal plan and you have so kindly laid it out for all. Would you mind also emailing me your grocery list? I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome ideas, I will be making more then a few of these recipes! Secondly, it is mind blowing that people feel the need to send you nasty comments regarding the clean eating part of your post. Whoooooooo gives a shit. Your intent I am sure is to help those who need it and give a few of your ideas.
What is wrong with that? Keep going girl, thanks for the recipes! Thanks to Pinterest I stumbled on your blog. I just started a business 2 weeks ago called Clean Bites and like you I promote clean and practical eating. I make meals for my customers who do not have the time to make clean meals. I make everything from scratch if possible. The meals you share here is a big help in my meal planning. Do u have a grocery list? Thank you so much for sharing! Just tried Paleo and it was next to impossible.
Clean eating and this plan specifically seems more of a lifestyle change vs a 30 day crash diet. Great job and again thank you! What a pleasant surprise! I saw this post on Pinterest and just pulled it up while doing my menu planning. Thank you for sharing! These recipes look great and my new years resolution was to try to eat clean without being crazy about it. Thank you, thank you thank you for posting this! I absolutely loved this post.
My interest in eating healthy is a result of my desperation to find an ease to both my crazy digestive system and my bad skin. I have a love for herbal medicine for preventative measures. I want to teach my children that someday, too.
Like you said, everything with a balance. I love your philosophy. Some people go overboard and its just not practical for most families. Sounds like you are doing a great job. Good luck and thanks for sharing. Just found you through pinterest and I super excited to give this a try. I feel like we are on the same page with our thoughts on eating clean.
Thanks for both of your posts. Thanks for letting me know! Thanks so much for all your hard work! I appreciate it greatly. I think anything that is not processed, no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, sweetners… is clean. I stumbled upon your blog through pinterest. I would like a grocery list as well if you have one!! Everything in moderation and keep those veggies coming!
Great work, keep it going! Thanks Brooke… I have my own food issues too, so this has been such a happy middle for us. I hope you love it too! I also would like a copy of the grocery list. I make as much of our food as I can myself — no processed or frozen, pre-packaged foods for us except as an occasional treat.
Thanks so much for sharing! I look forward to visiting often. Thank you for sharing your take on cleaning eating. Some things that have been a huge turn off for me are the cost and the idea of all or nothing. The cost is a huge one. I live in a small town with limited options. I like the idea of we all do what we can in the stage of life we are in.
We need to support one another, not tear each other down because we think we are superior because of our eating standards. I love your positive outlook on this. Looking over your recipes, I have decided to re-evaluate mine and keep the ones that fall in line with how I view clean eating for my family, then slowly add new ones to see what they think.
My favorite is pecan rolls and baguettes. All that sugar and white flour. But I agree with you, I would take that stuff homemade with ingredients I trust over processed foods. Thanks again for this post.
It was just what I was looking for when searching cleaning eating!!! I just stumbled upon your blog, and I am very impressed with your efforts to be self-sustaining and to eat clean. We are in the market to buy a home soon, and I would love to have a hobby farm as well. Can I have a shopping list for this too plleeeaasseeee? Thank you for making it real!!
This was a very good read. Could you please email me your grocery list as well? Love your blog; thanks for the recipes! I found you via Pinterest…Applause to you for healthy eating and buying local foods. Thank you so much for this post! Like so many others have said, I am encouraged by your plan and life philosophy also.
My 19 year old daughter has encouraged me to join her and eat cleaner food. Thank you for your post, we are off to grocery shop and get started today. After this 2 week plan, we are moving on to your original post. I would also like the grocery list if one is available! I would love to have your grocery list as well: I eat more paleo and try to cut out all grains, but my family is not on board with that.
This looks like a happy medium for all of us! Do you have any tips on sneaking them into some foods? I look forward to your email. Thank you so much! I have a good, better, and best smoothie post you can find it on the sidebar and it is a great place to start.
Let me know if you need a link! This is such a great post!! I am definitely wanting to try this out. Do you have a grocery list for your meal plan?? Will let you know how it goes! I just had to brag on you.. I have been meaning to try the pizza recipe but keep forgetting that I have to prepare the dough 24 hrs in advance..
But I finally remembered to do so yesterday. I made two pizzas out of it.. One cheese thin pizza — baked on an upside down cookie sheet and the other I made in my cast iron skillet thick crust— rolled out on foil then turned over in the skillet and folded down excess and tapped with a fork..
Loaded with tons of veggies.. I cooked it at for 20 mins.. The kids loved theirs and we loved ours!! We will never buy another pizza — I even used your recipe for the pizza sauce.. I love your definition of clean eating and agree with it percent! I am looking forward to making some if these awesome recipes.
Thank you so much for doing this! I wrote a lot about it in the comments so if you scroll down you will find the details on what I spend. Hi, This all sounds wonderful. I would love to receive the shopping list as well. I would love an email of this please and a grocery list. Thank you for posting!! Love new healthy food ideas for me and my family. The chicken salad looks so delicious. This blog and recipe list is awesome!
My husband and I are using Advocare products, and this will be a great addition. Also, will you please send me a recipe list? Will any of these recipes freeze well? I too would love an ebook recipe book. Thank you, Melissa-what a super caring person you are!
PS — I would also love an email of the recipes as well as the shopping list if possible. So hard to get my family to eat healthily. I would also love an email with a shopping list.
I was just searching for a quick link for a friend about how I make lunches and whatnot for the family. I love this meal plan, my kids 3 and 6 will definitely eat this kind of clean dinners. Thanks so much for posting. I can i get a grocery list for this. Love your blog and the yummy recipes! My family is much like yours, we love to eat clean but we are also realistic and enjoy unfortunately sugary treats. We also live in the middle of no where and are on a budget, but we found a great website called greenpolkadotbox.
Just thought I would share! Thanks again for the recipes! That site is great, it was new to me, but the prices seem really great, especially on the nuts. Looking forward to looking more into it! Thank you for making it look so simple!!! Thank you, Pinterest for leading me to this blog! Thank you for being budget and family friendly! Thanks so much Amanda. You just made my day and helped me to remember that not everyone wants to give up everything but kale in the name of health.
I cannot imagine some of the comments. Unnecessary, in my thoughts. People need to appreciate your help more than bash it. Have a great rest of the day, Melissa! Melissa, thank you for this, I adapt it to Scottish seasonal food but my 1 yr old eats everything I give him from this and my husband too and soldiers are hard to please when it comes to healthy food! I want my son to know the joy that is great cake as well as the excitement of in season strawberries and peas — and so far he loves all of those!
How would you edit some of these meals for a single person? So if you are cooking sweet potatoes make enough to mash for a veggie burger for the next day. It will stand you in good stead for family life as well when prepreparing is the only thing between you and a takeaway sometimes!
Could you send me the grocery list as well! Trying to get organized before the school year begins! Thanks for the blot post!! Great for my family— trying to be clean without being neurotic about it; enjoying healthy food without fearing the other stuff; being healthy and budget friendly at the same time- all the good stuff!!
Can I I bother you for a grocery list please. Maybe to both plans. I appreciate this more than you know. It is such s blessing that you share all of this. I would buy your book in a heart beat. Thank you so much. I want affirm you!!! I avoid any artificial sweeteners and rather have real butter or coconut oil instead melted plastic.
Can you please send me the grocery list. Do you have an email that I can send or can you see mine? And yep, I can see emails from my end without anyone else being able to see it!
I would also love a copy of the shopping list! We are not all city folk or health nuts. I love your way of thinking and am so grateful that you put this out for all to enjoy……thanks love. I am so enjoying reading your clean eating methods.
So excited to try some new recipes! Hey Melissa — we are going to try your plan — I love that it is more realistic than most. Can you please email me the shopping list as well? Just also subscribed to your fb page! Love your food philosophy! This is the first clean-eating meal plan I think I can realistically use with my family. Thank you, thank you! When you get a chance, could you please send me a copy of your shopping list as well? Is there anyway you could email me the grocery list for this as well, please?
Would you please send me the shopping list for these recipes? I love this idea but become very overwhelmed when it comes to figuring out what I need. I have trying, unsuccessfully, to get my kids on board with healthy eating. This will be a great way to start! Thanks so much for this! ALS o could I have a copy of the grocery list, too? Check back in a few weeks and it should be available! Thank you so much for a down-to-earth, basic plan that a regular mom like me can truly attain…without a degree in nutrition or a health food store.
You have made clean eating a real possibility for me, rather than a pie-in-the-sky dream! Hello Melissa I would love a shopping list and have you done an Ebola yet? All the best Catherine near Stonehenge UK. If you are emailing a grocery list please add me to your list. Could I have the grocery list too?? Hi, I am really looking into trying to cook clean meals my whole family might enjoy and would love to try this plan.
Will you please send me the grocery list. Thanks for putting this together. How much on average do you spend a week on food for your family using this meal plan? I also keep a well stocked pantry though. I buy grains and things in bulk and store them in 5 gallon buckets with lids.
Her post on it was really interesting. You might want to check it out too. Let me know what you think! Could you please send the grocery list to me as well?
May I please have copy of your grocery list when you get a chance? I would love a grocery list as well. May I please have a copy of your grocery list? I just got back from vacation, and am in desperate need of some clean eating!!! Could you please send me your grocery list? I just got back from vacation and am in desperate need of some clean eating!!! A grocery list would be so awesome!
I vote yes on the chickens, seriously the best pets ever! I just mailed that shopping list to you Cassie! Love this post, came across it on Pinterest. Above it says recipes included, where so I find them?
Also a shopping lost as suggested in most of the comments would be fantastic! This is fantastic, honestly! So refreshing to read, no fads, and unrealistic lifestyle changes. It makes my heart sing as I finally feel like it something I can achieve. The only time it works is when I make natural choices and changes to my lifestyle which only makes me feel better about everything rather than deprived.
I love your approach and this is something that is manageable for my family. My goal is to teach them to make sensible food choices and thus not create any food issues. Job well done and I would love your 2 week grocery list!
Wish I would have seen this before I just went grocery shopping! This is awesome and inspiring thank you! Would you mind emailing me the grocery list by chance? Hi Melissa I just found your blog and I am extremely intrigued. I have been looking for Something fast and easy to get my family on the right track. Could you please send me a grocery list so we can get started right away.
I absolutely love this post! Can I please have a copy of the list too please?! Just found your blog love it! I am new to clean eating. Found your clean eating post on pinterest.
Am wondering if you ever got your ebook up and ready and where Id be able to purchase it? I am keen on having all these recipes in one spot! Im loving your ideas, the foods look amazing! Im on a clean eating plan now and am desperate need of variety for myself and my four kids!
Thank you so much for sharing this! This was a great post. You are an inspiration. Thank you SO much. That was just the comment that brightened my day!
And after some family heartbreak this weekend I needed a little sunshine. I have been looking for something like this for months. I am about to start my journey into clean eating with my family of 4. LOVE your philosophy and recipes.
Would absolutely love your shopping lists for both plans. I am excited to start ASAP! How soon until your Ebook comes out? Would you email me the grocery list please? I would love to try this with my family. I would also love the grocery list please! I feel tired, cranky, and my food intake has been terrible. I love all your knowledge and most especially how you encourage people to do better…cause when you do better you are better. Look forward to going to the grocery store withyour list!
Hi Melissa, Very nice blog and great points about clean eating perspectives. I have a question about your ww overnight pizza dough recipe. It gives the yeast a little something to eat. The food sounds delish! I appreciate not only the clean eating but also an actual meal plan. Now all I need is the Grocery List!! Would you please share it with me? I cannot tell if my comment posted or not so just to be sure, can I get the shopping list as well please? Can I get the grocery list as well please?

These are actually foods I think I can eat and enjoy without feeling so deprived!!! I would love a copy of the grocery list. I want to start eating clean and want to see if it is in my budget. Such a good idea and plan.
