clean eating. i'm doing it people. and by "doing it", i mean like 90% of the time. i'll indulge in some chocolate, a piece of delicious cake, a cookie made with white flour, and alcohol on occasion. but the rest of the time? clean it is. i just got done reading The Eat Clean Diet Recharged by Tosca Reno - let me just say this lady is all out. in a good way! i won't be so hard core, but the core values of this lifestyle change are being put to use as of 6:30 this morning. this was a really good book, brought to a light a lot of things that should be common sense. eating real foods, meat, nuts, lots of water - that'll change your health, who knew?! now again, i'll indulge in one or more diet sodas this weekend i'm sure, but as all things in life - moderation is key.
after reading the book i realized that i already eat pretty clean, so this shouldn't be too hard to implement the rest. just a matter of cutting out some of the junk i eat. i'm all about natural stuff and being green anyway, so this is sort of just the last step. i'm also going to get max on board as much as possible, although most of his eating happens at daycare.
clean eating is not a raw food diet, it's not macro, it's not vegan. it's not even a diet. it's a lifestyle change, and one that i think is not impossible. eating zero carbs for the rest of your life? no thanks. eating real, unprocessed, fresh, healthy food? sign me up. again, we don't eat much processed food to begin with, so this won't be too hard for us(i say that now...). i'm going to do a post at least once a week with "what i ate" to show the amazing foods you CAN eat while eating clean.
happy (healthy) humpday!
p.s. i'm considering subscribing to the clean eating magazine - anyone already a subscriber? love it? hate it? let me know!
