It's been over 3 months since my first clean eating post. Now, we're on part 8 and I've lost 14 pounds since then. The weight loss is exciting, but my digestive system and overall body feeling great is even more exciting :)
I've also pretty much eliminated coffee from my diet (I used to drink several cups a day), I don't drink soft drinks, and I limit desserts to one or two times a week. I also do cardio at least four nights a week and squats and/or sit-ups every night.
It's difficult at times, but having a roommate, friends, and viewers who support my altered lifestyle make clean living a lot easier.
Here are some recent meals:
Breakfast: strawberries, blueberries, carrots
Dinner: spinach salad w/ mushrooms, cucumber, onions, tomatoes; the next day I had the salad inside of a 98% fat free wrap
Lunch: sautéed onions, mushrooms, spinach in olive oil
Lunch: spinach salad w/ carrots, mushrooms, and onions
Breakfast: 2 bananas, spinach, carrots, grapes
Breakfast & dessert: 2 bananas, strawberries, blueberries, carrots
(this was so yummy!)
Strawberries and spinach - you can't really taste the spinach,
so it's like a strawberry smoothie with lots of fiber!
Breakfast: Grapes, carrots, spinach, banana
Lunch: Mushrooms, carrots, onions, spinach, avocado
Breakfast: grapes, strawberries, blueberries (one of my favorites, so sweet!)
Breakfast: grapes, strawberries, and spinach (also really great)
A repeat breakfast - grapes & carrots are cheap and come in large bundles!
Another delicious blend: strawberries, blueberries, grapes and a banana
Besides bananas, I cut up fruit and veggies after buying and washing to quickly make fruit blends before work. Just toss in the fruit and blend! It takes about 4.5 minutes total :)
My favorite blend -- grapes, carrots, blueberries, strawberries :)
