MCK Turns 1!

My Clean Kitchen Turns One!!!

Wow, we can’t believe it’s been a year since we started My Clean Kitchen. It all started in Sara’s little kitchen with the idea of writing a cookbook, that quickly evolved into a food blog. Little did we know when we got started that we’d be joining a unique and sophisticated group of people. Food bloggers are dedicated, creative and fun. We are honored to be a part of that community. Over the year, we have tried hard to create recipes that are not only delicious but also healthy, fresh and local. It’s been an exciting and challenging journey.

Listening to that […]

How I Eat Clean Throughout the Week

For me one of the biggest challenges I had when I first started eliminating processed foods from my diets was figuring out how to properly use food prep to my advantage. It takes practice, but over time I have been able to figure out how to cook some things ahead of time to make my […]
