Dear Kristina Would you please send me the old weight watchers programme information. February 4, at 9: So, I guess I will slightly modify the diet and follow it.. My favorite is pecan rolls and baguettes. May I please have a copy of your grocery list? Thank you for this. Or even a homemade version?
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!

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!

Thanks so much and God Bless! I love both your 2 week meal plans. Would it be possible to get the grocery list for both meal plans if you have them available? I love your blog and have been on a healthy real food kick for awhile now and this would be a great addition to our meal plan lineup.
Hi please could you email me the shopping list. Just found your blog and LOVE it. Thank you thank you! So looking forward to trying out your meal plan! Love the variety and simple ingredients.

I feel like we are kindred spirits. I saw a lot of people asking for a grocery list.
Are you still emailing it out? I would love it too if possible. We are at the end of week two and I wanted to post an update. With three dinners left to try, I have to say that this has been awesome! My family which includes a preschooler and toddler has loved everything so far! We have to be realistic. Are you in any type of blogging commenting group? Congrats on your weight loss too friend, your blog was so fun to read! I love this post!! I love your attitude!
This is sensible and REAL! Keep up the good work. Thanks for the comment, totally made my night! I found this blog via pintrest. So thanks so much!!! I will be following your blog for sure. Loved your comment about your homemade cookies vs the sugar free jello…a million times yes!! Such great comments Chrissie! I was just reading an article about an emerging eating disorder when it comes to limiting so much of ones diet and being obsessed with clean foods.
It was so sad. Moderation in all things right?! Thanks for writing, it made my night! I want to try this healthy meal plan for me and my family. What a beautiful philosophy on eating and life! Please send the grocery list for eating clean spring summer menu. I am ready to make changes in my life this will be awesome and fun thank you.
I love this post! I think where I get stuck is that I think the food is clean and healthy and so I eat what I want. The truth is though, real clean healthy food still has calories and you can still over eat, even the good stuff.
Hope that helps, good luck Dani! May I please get a grocery list as well??? Can I get a copy of the shopping list too? I have some questions, though. My husband is diabetic and can only have 70 grams of sugar per meal. He must take medication before eating as well. Does anyone think he would be ok eating clean following these recipes, or would he be in danger of exceeding the 70 gram per meal limit?
Oh, and he is possibly the pickiest eater I have ever met! I would love some opinions and guidance on this if anyone would like to share. They are pretty hit and miss. Some of the whole wheat pasta and such would still be quite high in sugar because of the carbs but on the steak canrnita night, if you turned it into a salad or something you might be ok.
Thanks for such a great wealth of information! Could you send me your shopping list please??? My mother n law to be and I are doing this pre my wedding. Are we able to get the menu plan? I just happened upon your blog thank you, Pinterest! I try to follow the same approach because it is really important to me that my kids have a healthy, well-balanced relationship with food. I am so excited to try some of your recipes, thanks for sharing! The recipes look yummy! I would appreciate a copy of your grocery list.
Is your e book out yet?! I would love to buy it or be sent your grocery list along with the million others on here too haha keep up the great work! The book is so so close Lauren! Love both of your eating clean plans! I love your take on it. I would be so very grateful if I could get both plans grocery list emailed to me. Just found this blog. I think less processed foods will help him to feel better. Would it be possible for you email me the grocery list for the two week plan? Hello, new at this clean eating thing and my family and I really need it.
I just had a baby and started working out again but I never get the eating clean part so I end up starving myself. It helped me feel better about eating. Could I also get a copy of your grocery list? Congrats on the baby Sandra! Food makes the biggest difference for me when it comes to loosing weight! I have to workout a million hours or decide to eat well.
This is such an amazing post! I have spent literally hours online researching clean eating meal plans and recipies and most of them seem so costly and unrealistic! Truely great post, thank you!!! Love your site and love this post.
Been clean eating for a year now and I love the way I feel. Whenever you get a chance may I get a copy of this shopping list? I have never seen such a detailed plan anywhere before. You have not only included daily menu but also recipes for each of them. Best part I like is this is clean meal, perfect for health conscious.

You can find the shopping list here! Thanks so much for asking: I just found you recently on Pinterest. But yours are actually logical and practical for life. My only concern is to find recipes I can make that have no preservatives and would be good for my family! Just good food not freaky food! And that you are a woman of God is super incredible to see!
I look forward to trying so many recipes! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Kind words are so powerful. We eat organically, but have not yet managed to be sugar free.
I intend to try your two week menu, and I also would love a copy of your grocery list please. The book is new and different and better in my opinion! I spent almost a year working on it!

I like your thoughts. I am the same.. Hi Melissa… I am so happy to have found your blog… Wonderful blessing that it is! So much good information and wonderful recipes.. And I would like to comment on something you stated: Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful thoughts, recipes, lists, etc. Thanks for this and your other menu. I want to eat clean, but we are. This will be more. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom, it is truly a blessing!
I usually never comment on anything but after reading this I have to try it. You have made it easy and practical. Thank you so much for putting this together. This is just what I needed to start in getting my family on the right track. Definitely gonna give it a try!! No whole foods store here for miles! Then I saw pizza, and waffles and food I can get at the local grocery! This is real life that we can go with! I printed the 2 week plan! My goal is just to reduce sugar and add more veggies.
Thankful for the time you put into this! Thank you for this. Thank you also for the shopping list- makes it totally do-able! Awesome, so glad I found you on here! Thanks for all the awesome recipes, we are planning to garden this year. Thanks for sharing your guide!
I appreciate how real you are. I help a lot of people with their overall health and fitness. Food is meant to be enjoyed, we just need to use wisdom in our choices.
I appreciate the economy version. Thank you so much for posting this. I appreciate your realistic view of eating to live and also enjoying what you eat. Sometimes I am really ashamed by myself because I eat a lot of junk food. I want to start eat clean and your blog inspired me! I will start with this menu right now! I Love this blog, it states exactly what life is really like and how it can be a process that is do able.
Thanks for the insight and blessings you have sent through your dedication. Thank you for this!!! I love this post and your candid honesty. Thank you for that breath of fresh air! I am super excited that I was checking out a pin on pinterest butternut squash lasagna rollups and I discovered your blog.
I would have to say that if I was to write down the things that I try to do with my 2 and 4 year old, it would look a lot like what you do. Also, thanks for the honesty. I love the idea. This is what I try to do at home.
I also have four children. I just wish there was a list of things to have in the kitchen on a regular basis. I have tried 5 of your recipes and my family has loved all of them! Especially the Honey Lime Tilapia. I look forward to trying more of them!!
Thanks for sharing your yummy recipes. That tilapia is good! Thank you for sharing all of this and making it sound easy! I love your post. I got a great 8-week paleo meal plan for free when I bought the Paleo Recipe book. It really helped me stay on track with my clean eating. I love your common sense approach especially about letting your kids be kids and making sure they eat healthy at home and establish good habits but letting them participate with others when they are out.
Wish this was gluten-free as well, then I would definitely try this meal plan. As it is, I would poison myself. I do not have the time nor the funds to test these recipes with alternative ingredients and methods. Thank you for letting me know!

August 5, at 5: August 6, at 7: August 8, at August 17, at 3: I would love the list as well please! August 20, at 8: September 1, at September 6, at 8: Spain started issuing national ID cards DNI in the form of Smartcards in and gradually replaced all the older ones with Smartcards.
The idea was that many or most bureaucratic acts could be done online but it was a failure because the Administration did not adapt and still mostly requires paper documents and personal presence. On August 14, , the ID cards in Pakistan were replaced. The Smart Card is a third generation chip-based identity document that is produced according to international standards and requirements. The card has over 36 physical security features and has the latest [ clarification needed ] encryption codes.
Smart cards may identify emergency responders and their skills. Cards like these allow first responders to bypass organizational paperwork and focus more time on the emergency resolution.
In , The Smart Card Alliance expressed the needs: WidePoint Corporation , a smart card provider to FEMA , produces cards that contain additional personal information, such as medical records and skill sets.
Smart cards are also used to identify user accounts on arcade machines. Smart cards, used as transit passes , and integrated ticketing are used by many public transit operators. Card users may also make small purchases using the cards. Some operators offer points for usage, exchanged at retailers or for other benefits.
However, these present a privacy risk because they allow the mass transit operator and the government to track an individual's movement. In Finland, for example, the Data Protection Ombudsman prohibited the transport operator Helsinki Metropolitan Area Council YTV from collecting such information, despite YTV's argument that the card owner has the right to a list of trips paid with the card.
Earlier, such information was used in the investigation of the Myyrmanni bombing. The UK's Department for Transport mandated smart cards to administer travel entitlements for elderly and disabled residents. These schemes let residents use the cards for more than just bus passes.
They can also be used for taxi and other concessionary transport. One example is the "Smartcare go" scheme provided by Ecebs. Other schemes in the UK include period travel passes, carnets of tickets or day passes and stored value which can be used to pay for journeys. Other concessions for school pupils, students and job seekers are also supported.
Many smart transport schemes include the use of low cost smart tickets for simple journeys, day passes and visitor passes. Examples include Glasgow SPT subway. Smart cards can be used as a security token. Mozilla's Firefox web browser can use smart cards to store certificates for use in secure web browsing. GnuPG , the well known encryption suite, also supports storing keys in a smart card.
Smart cards are also used for single sign-on to log on to computers. Smart cards are being provided to students at some schools and colleges. Smart health cards can improve the security and privacy of patient information, provide a secure carrier for portable medical records , reduce health care fraud , support new processes for portable medical records, provide secure access to emergency medical information, enable compliance with government initiatives e.
Smart cards are widely used to encrypt digital television streams. VideoGuard is a specific example of how smart card security worked. The Malaysian government promotes MyKad as a single system for all smart-card applications. MyKad started as identity cards carried by all citizens and resident non-citizens. 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.
Smart cards have been advertised as suitable for personal identification tasks, because they are engineered to be tamper resistant. The chip usually implements some cryptographic algorithm.
There are, however, several methods for recovering some of the algorithm's internal state. Differential power analysis involves measuring the precise time and electric current required for certain encryption or decryption operations. This can deduce the on-chip private key used by public key algorithms such as RSA.
Some implementations of symmetric ciphers can be vulnerable to timing or power attacks as well. Smart cards can be physically disassembled by using acid, abrasives, solvents, or some other technique to obtain unrestricted access to the on-board microprocessor.
Although such techniques may involve a risk of permanent damage to the chip, they permit much more detailed information e. The benefits of smart cards are directly related to the volume of information and applications that are programmed for use on a card. Multi-factor and proximity authentication can and has been embedded into smart cards to increase the security of all services on the card.
For example, a smart card can be programmed to only allow a contactless transaction if it is also within range of another device like a uniquely paired mobile phone. This can significantly increase the security of the smart card. Governments and regional authorities save money because of improved security, better data and reduced processing costs. These savings help reduce public budgets or enhance public services. Individuals have better security and more convenience with using smart cards that perform multiple services.
For example, they only need to replace one card if their wallet is lost or stolen. The data storage on a card can reduce duplication, and even provide emergency medical information.
The first main advantage of smart cards is their flexibility. Smart cards have multiple functions which simultaneously can be an ID, a credit card, a stored-value cash card, and a repository of personal information such as telephone numbers or medical history. The card can be easily replaced if lost, and, the requirement for a PIN or other form of security provides additional security from unauthorised access to information by others.
At the first attempt to use it illegally, the card would be deactivated by the card reader itself. The second main advantage is security. Smart cards can be electronic key rings, giving the bearer ability to access information and physical places without need for online connections.
They are encryption devices, so that the user can encrypt and decrypt information without relying on unknown, and therefore potentially untrustworthy, appliances such as ATMs. Smart cards are very flexible in providing authentication at different level of the bearer and the counterpart. Finally, with the information about the user that smart cards can provide to the other parties, they are useful devices for customizing products and services.
Smart cards can be used in electronic commerce , over the Internet, though the business model used in current electronic commerce applications still cannot use the full potential of the electronic medium. An advantage of smart cards for electronic commerce is their use customize services. For example, in order for the service supplier to deliver the customized service, the user may need to provide each supplier with their profile, a boring and time-consuming activity.
A smart card can contain a non-encrypted profile of the bearer, so that the user can get customized services even without previous contacts with the supplier. The plastic or paper card in which the chip is embedded is fairly flexible. The larger the chip, the higher the probability that normal use could damage it.
Cards are often carried in wallets or pockets, a harsh environment for a chip and antenna in contactless cards. However, for large banking systems, failure-management costs can be more than offset by fraud reduction. The production, use and disposal of PVC plastic is known to be more harmful to the environment than other plastics. If the account holder's computer hosts malware , the smart card security model may be broken. Malware can override the communication both input via keyboard and output via application screen between the user and the application.
Banks like Fortis and Belfius in Belgium and Rabobank " random reader " in the Netherlands combine a smart card with an unconnected card reader to avoid this problem. The customer enters a challenge received from the bank's website, a PIN and the transaction amount into the reader. The reader returns an 8-digit signature. This signature is manually entered into the personal computer and verified by the bank, preventing point-of-sale-malware from changing the transaction amount.
Smart cards have also been the targets of security attacks. These attacks range from physical invasion of the card's electronics, to non-invasive attacks that exploit weaknesses in the card's software or hardware. The usual goal is to expose private encryption keys and then read and manipulate secure data such as funds.
