Yesterday was day 1 for me of The 30 Clean. I have to tell you that while I was having a very stressful day at work, I was thinking of going home to have a glass of wine. But, that did not happen. Instead I prepared my dinner & was so happy that I stuck to day 1 as outlined! Here’s what I ate yesterday ( I promise I won’t do this daily):
Although it took me loads of time for all of the prep for the 1st 3 days of The 30 Clean, it was worth it! Breakfast was blueberry chia pudding. While it was quite tasty & did the trick until noon, it wasn’t my favorite thing for breakfast. Lunch was a Costa Rican Inspired Cabbage salad=delicious! Dinner was zucchini noodles & balsamic marinated tomatoes with almonds = another home run! Absolutely delicious! These meals were all quick & easy to prepare & didn’t require any cooking. I think this is really going to be doable!
My mantra for the next 29 days will be 1 day at a time!
I wasn’t very clear with information regarding The 30 Clean, so let me share a little with you now. Clean eating is eating simply.
That means fresh, whole, natural and non-processed foods free from hormones, chemicals, preservatives and pesticides. No grains, No dairy, No sugar, No soy, No gluten! You may think, what’s left… Well, my friends, whole foods are left & those are the foods that are really so good for you. I’ll continue to keep you posted along my journey. I’m doing this b/c I’ve fallen into some bad habits (such as coming home to snack or have a glass of wine). This may be a challenge to do with my family, but honestly, I typically prepare foods differently than them anyhow. They’re carnivores & I’m certainly NOT! So, here’s to new challenges & feeling great & clean!
