The internet and the lovely Tosca Reno, author of The Eat Clean Diet, always have plenty for me to choose from.  Lately, I have been having SO much fun in the kitchen converting potentially “bad” recipes into “clean” ones! <<note my exclamation point…super excited about this.

Here are some conversion ratios I am putting into practice lately (I’ll be posting recipes soon as well):
