Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the peppers, onion, garlic and cumin, and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Mix in the crushed tomatoes and chile peppers. Pour in the broth, and season with salt, pepper, paprika, coriander and cayenne pepper. Add in the juice of 1 lime and stir to mix. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer at least 25 minutes. Place your corn out to thaw and rinse your black beans thoroughly. Then add in your corn, black beans, cilantro, green onions, and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove soup from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes before serving. I served it with crushed tortilla chips, extra cilantro, green onion, avocado, shredded cheese and greek yogurt on the side. That way we could pick and choose from the toppings depending on what each one of us likes!

Leftover Carnitas Salad

Carnitas Salad Recipe

Leftover Carnitas Salad

Leftover Carnitas Salad, yes I said leftovers hahahaha. Maybe you never have leftover carnitas but since we are a small family we always have leftover carnitas. I am always looking for ways to use them up besides just my regular tacos or burrito bowls. We love to cook our carnitas in the slow cooker. Check out the recipe here: Clean Eating Slow Cooker Carnitas. The slow cooker carnitas recipe is probably the most popular when I run my Slow Cooker Groups. People love it and so do we!!

Ingredients for Salad:

  • Leftover Carnitas
  • 1 cup of frozen corn
  • 1/2 a yellow bell pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 1/2 a red bell pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 poblano pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 4-5 cups of romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • Cilantro to garnish
  • lime wedges to garnish

Ingredients for Dressing:

  • 1/4 of olive oil
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tsps of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp of adobo
  • 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp of plain greek yogurt


  1. Warm up your left over carnitas under the broiler to crisp them up.
  2. Put frozen corn in a pan and cook until toasted. A little char on it or burn as I like to call it.
  3. While toasting the corn put all dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl and top with dressing. Toss your salad and serve. Enjoy!!

We had this last night and my hubby loved it!! We will definitely be doing this salad again. If you need something a little more hearty or CARBS…. add some quinoa or brown rice to ice. Or why not eat some tortillas or make this salad into a tostada! Sounds yummy right?

Sugar Free Oatmeal Pies

Did you know that the average American breakfast can have anywhere from 10-55grams of sugar or artificial sweeteners in it?

Think about what you normally have for breakfast:

  • cereal and milk
  •  muffin
  • pop tarts
  •  donuts
  • granola bar
  • coffee shop pastries
  • caramel latte

Here’s the deal. When we start our day off with that much sugar, we are setting ourselves up for a crash later! Literally, we eat a breakfast that contains lots of carbs and sugars, which gives us a kick-start of energy, but that doesn’t last long. There’s little to no nutrients in some of the items listed above, which means there’s nothing there to fuel our body long-term. Instead, we are running off of the sugar, until we burn that off, and hit a crash which is where our body says…”Hey, I need more sugar so I can keep going throughout the day!’

And that’s how we get into the addictive sugar cycle.

It’s not totally our fault though. The food industry has created these foods. Marketing them as great ways to start your morning. And don’t think for one second they don’t know what they are doing. They are educated and aware of the fact that sugar is highly addictive. That’s why it’s in so many items. They know that you will come back for more because your body will want it!


We choose foods that contain good sources of protein and healthy fats. These items give our body fuel to slowly burn off, plus they create that feeling of satiety, which means we are staying full longer.  Some of my favorite things to have for breakfast are a full of nutrition protein shake, or an egg scramble with lots of veggies added in. Let’s admit it though, many times we are barely getting out the door on time, and that’s without feeding ourselves or the kiddos breakfast. That’s part of the problem isn’t it? Those items listed above are all quick and easy! Grab-n- go is ideal for our busy lifestyle, especially when it comes to morning time.

That’s why I’ve added this amazing Oatmeal Pie Recipe to my Simply Sugar Free Cookbook that is on sale for pre-order right now. Full of 30+ recipes that are Sugar Free and delicious! My goal is to provide people with recipes that will make the idea of living a sustainable sugar-free lifestyle a reality!

Not only does The Simply Sugar Free Cookbook feature some yummy sugar-free recipes that you and the family will love, but I also share my own sugar-free journey with you.

One Pan Dinners Meal Prep Group

One Pan Dinners

Hey everyone!!

I am so excited to be running this new 5 day group idea that I had. Do you spilt up the household duties in your home?

In our home, I do the meal planning, my hubby does the actual cooking (he is amazing) and I do the dishes. I do not hate doing the dishes but I always love when there are less of them, especially pots and pans. We have started to become obsessed with one pan dinners and for a good reason. They are easy, quick and there is less mess!!

I have been running 5 Day Free Clean Eating Groups for a while now and love them. I have met so many fantastic ladies and made genuine friendships in them. But I love switching things up and this seems like a fun way to do it. The group will start on August 15th 2016 in a private Facebook Page.

  • 5 One Pan Dinner Ideas
  • Recipe Sharing
  • Meal Prep Tips
  • Shopping List
  • Health Tips
  • Motivation

Here is a quick One Pan Dinner (serves 2) that we love to do:


  • 2 Salmon Filets
  • 1 Lemon
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 Bunch of Asparagus
  • Garlic Cloves (as many as you like!)
  • Olive Oil Spray


  1. Pre-Heat oven to 400.
  2. Get a sheet pan and spray with olive oil spray. Place Asparagus on the sheet pan and add as many garlic cloves as you plan on eating!
  3. Put into the oven and cook for 25 minutes.
  4. Take out of the oven. Move asparagus to each side to make space in the center of the pan. Place salmon in the center of the pan.
  5. Season salmon with salt and pepper and place 2 lemon slices on each filet.
  6. Put back in the oven for an addition 15-20 minutes depending on how you like your salmon cooked.
  7. Take out, plate and enjoy!

I love teaching other women how to eat clean and carry that over into their family life. I run clean eating groups as well as fitness and nutrition groups in order to do this. I believe that a healthy and happy Mommy will produce a happy and healthy family!

To be in the group message me on Facebook or email me at joannebjung@gmail.com

I can not wait to work with you!!

Sofrito: The Perfect Seasoning for a Clean Eating Lifestyle

Clean eating is a concept that stresses eating healthy, wholesome and unprocessed foods. While the idea of clean eating may be easy to comprehend, things may become a little dicey when you are unsure of what to use to season your food. Unfortunately, many seasonings have added ingredients that are chemically processed.

I like to use my own seasoning, so I know exactly what I am eating. Sofrito is my favorite food base. It is a seasoning base that is used in Spanish cooking. The flavors are bold and powerful, without being spicy.

I make this recipe in bulk so I never run out! It is also a versatile recipe as it can be used in soups, sauces and with beans, meats, fish and vegetables.

Sofrito Recipe


4 peppers (green, red, yellow and orange are preferable, but red and green work as well)

2 bunches of cilantro (oregano can be substituted)

2 onions

3-4 heads of garlic


Prep: 45 minutes Special Equipment: Food Processor

1. Rough chop all ingredients.

2. Using a food processor combine all ingredients. Process to the consistency of a salsa.

3. Once processed, divide up into mason jars or glass jars. Store extra portions in freezer.

Note: I process the ingredients in small portions. Once each portion is processed, I add it to a large bowl, mixing occasionally.
