***Updated September 2018 to 50 Clean Eating Recipes!!!***
Every year millions of people resolve to lose weight starting on January 1. And every year most of those folks feel like failures around February 1 because they couldn’t stick to their new diet routine.
I totally get it.
I know a little something about losing weight. I’ve lost close to one hundred pounds over the past two years. Let me tell you-it wasn’t easy. I had to change the way I looked at food. You know, stop eating because I was stressed or emotional, when I wasn’t hungry or just because Scandal was on. I researched every diet known to man.
A clean eating diet helps you lose fat and weight while increasing your energy and overall well-being. Other benefits include skin clarity, hair strength, and sleep quality. As a thirty something year old with three kids I needed help with all of those! Especially sleep!
Clean eating is more of a lifestyle than a diet. Nothing is strictly off limits, which is probably one of the reasons the clean eating diet is so popular. Simply put, clean eating means choosing to eat more natural foods and less processed ones.
Clean Eating Basics
- Eat 6 Small Meals Per Day
- Always Eat Breakfast
- Eat Lean Protein & Complex Carbs in Every Meal
- Eat 2-3 Servings of Healthy Fats Every Day
- Drink 2-3 Liters of Water Every Day
Ok! Ready to start living clean eating style? Here’s a few of my favorite healthy recipes to help you start!
Most of these are easy to prepare with ingredients that can be found in any local store. (Since I’m living it up in a small town I don’t even consider recipes that call for specialty items. My apologies to the foodies. My three-kid lifestyle prevents me from traveling for groceries!)
