2014 Food Lover's Cleanse: Week 2 (New American Theme)

Roasted vegetables with green tahini sauce

As a follow-on to Week 1 of the Bon Appetit Food Lover's Cleanse, we did a New American-focused menu. Again, we really only incorporated a few of the cleanse recipes, but those we did were really delicious this week! Also, by the end of these two weeks, I have taken off the ~4 pounds of holiday weight I had gained. Hooray!

Sun: Grilled Rib Eye with Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Mon: Roasted Root Vegetables with Quinoa and Green Tahini Sauce (vegetables roasted ahead on Sunday with the sweet potatoes)
Tues: Roasted Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Oregano (not a cleanse recipe, and really not a winner…)
Wed: Root Vegetable Salad (with leftovers from earlier in the week)
Thus: A somewhat decent pasta dish (a recipe of Audrey's creation) made from leftover chicken thighs
Fri: Out to Table to finish off the week
