Clean for a Day

9 Nov

So . . . clean eating. What the heck does that even mean?

Think whole foods. No brightly colored packages, no preservatives, no artificial sweeteners, etc. Read labels. Ingredient lists should be recognizable. For meat, avoid the pre-ground pre-packaged stuff!  A butcher will grind any cut for you and, believe me, a whole bird is SO MUCH CHEAPER than pieces. For more in-depth information, Tiffany over at the Gracious Pantry does a beautiful job explaining what it means to “eat clean.”

I’m good at providing examples. I’m my own lab rat.

My Eats Today (for real):

First thing: french press, little splash of half & half (WHAT), teeny tiny grind of that cinnamon sugar grinder in the background.


Smoothie. Exactly as yesterday. Exactly.









Post-Workout: 1 (toasted) slice Dave’s Good Seed, 1 Tbs Almond Butter, Honeycrisp apple.

Lunch: Trader Joe’s Greek Salad (half dressing).

Dinner: Ribs (bbq’d with Bone-Suckin’ Sauce), garlicky chard and sweet potatoes, small slice of Great Harvest Garlic Cheddar loaf.

Real food. Simply simple food. Ta-da.

Before bed: hot peppermint tea to aid digestion.

TMI? Maybe.

True? Totally.

    Awesome!!! I am reading “Eating Clean for Dummies” (fitting, huh?) LOL and it says basically label-less foods. That’s a really quick and simple way to remember it when at the store and you realize you don’t have your friend Jess’ number to text and ask questions! LOL
