I’m so excited about my 30 Days of Clean Eating Challenge.
Be sure to check out what I ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner today over on Facebook.
Remember, eating food in it’s natural state is clean! With no added sugars and fats. If you are trying to lose fat, limit sugar and fat so your body will burn the fat. I will be drinking ONLY water (lots of it), milk ..and my usual cup of coffee in the morning.
Now it’s time to go shopping. Preparing these meals is really simple because you are not adding a lot of additional ingredients. Read your labels. I look for less than 5 ingredients and you want to be able to pronounce them.
I will be grilling, sauteing, roasting foods and using my handy crock-pot too.
Here is a list of what I will be buying and eating. This is where you have fun. Try new things!
Fat Free Milk
Lean Meats and Poultry (Chicken and Turkey)
Lots of fresh and frozen veggies
Lots fresh and frozen fruits – Smoothies
Dried beans and lentils
Old Fashion Oatmeal (NOT instant varieties…too much sugar)
Block Cheese (to shred myself)
Plain Low-fat yogurt (NO fruit flavors..too much sugar)
