I made the spiced protein bars from EC Family yesterday and I really like them. My 7 year old likes them too which is a bonus. It's always good to find new healthy snacks to send to school with him.
Just looking to be the best me I can be!
Oh my! GETTINGSTARS, that sounds delicious! Will definitely have to try.

I thought this recipe sounded really good (it's from Clean Eating magazine's recent newsletter):
Chicken Sausage Pitas with Grilled Peppers and Onions
You’re going to love our clean version of a stacked chicken sandwich, but what you’ll love even more is that one serving contains less than six grams of fat!
Hands-on time: 15 minutes. Total time: 20 minutes.
Here’s a quick and delicious recipe that can be served for lunch or dinner. The ingredients cook best on an indoor grill, but a regular pan will work just fine. The pitas are perfectly paired with our Napa Cabbage Slaw.
* 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
* 1 tbsp nonfat Greek-style yogurt
* 2 tsp agave nectar
* 3/4 small red onion
* 1/2 red bell pepper, cored and cut into 1/2-inch strips
* 1/2 yellow bell pepper, cored and cut into 1/2-inch strips
* 2 3-oz precooked chicken sausages, cut in half lengthwise
* 2 whole-wheat pitas, cut in half
* 4 cups arugula, loosely packed
ONE: Prepare an indoor grill to medium-high.
TWO: In a small bowl, combine mustard, yogurt and agave. Store in refrigerator.
THREE: Cut onion into 8 wedges.
FOUR: Grill onion and peppers until softened and lightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Grill sausages until lightly charred and heated through, about 2 minutes per side. Grill pitas until warm, about 30 seconds per side.
FIVE: Spread mustard mixture into open pita halves. Cut sausages in half and arrange in pitas. Add peppers, onion and arugula, dividing evenly among pita halves. Serve warm.

Could you post the recipe Heatherhusker for those of us who don't have the books? Or any recipes that might be posted here?
I just thought I would start a thread about recipes others have tried from any of the 3 Clean Eating books.
What have you tried? Liked, not liked?
I made the Friday night Chili last night from the Family/Kid friendly book and had it for lunch today...it is AWESOME!! I paired it with Kashi 7 grain crackers and iced tea...what an awesome lunch.
