Oh my, it's been entirely too long since my last clean eating post. My apologies to everyone who keeps up with this blog series (it's my most viewed series of post, by far). Over the holidays, I wasn't at my place much which really threw off my clean eating routine. But for the past few weeks, I've been back on track and my 18 pounds lost is now 19 pounds loss, yay for consistency! I'm sticking to at least 2 clean meals a day.
Check out some of my recent meals
I've been alternating between blending bananas and ice & just grabbing a banana for breakfast before heading to class or work during the week. Since it's so cold, I prefer coffee or tea as my morning drink as opposed to an icy smoothie every single day.
Ground chicken is my favorite meat to add to veggies. I ate ground chicken with green beans, sprinkled with black pepper and drizzled with lemon juice - yum!
I ate a banana for breakfast and packed this salad for lunch. The salad includes (spring mix, tomatoes, green tomato salsa, and raw mushrooms, topped with lemon juice)

I love brussels sprouts! A restaurant in Atlanta makes the best brussels sprouts I've ever had, but I tried to copy them. I make them softer by boiling them in water first and adding in some chopped onions to the water. Then I bake them in the oven for 10-15 min.
My mom made turnip greens for us and added onions and some pepper sauce - so good!
I cooked some mango chicken using ground chicken, onions, green peppers, red peppers, and mangos, and mango juice. Seriously one of the best chicken dishes ever!
I cooked ground chicken with spinach, onions, and mushrooms in the skillet. Then baked some sweet potato fries (sprinkled with black pepper) and brussels sprouts (after boiling them).
For dinner one night I ate leftover sweet potato fries, brussels sprouts, and salad with green salsa!
I keep washed, cut up fruit in a container so I can snack on it during the week. It's so much easier to eat heathy when it's convenient and looks appetizing. Strawberries and blueberries are two of my favorites!
How is the healthy lifestyle going for you?
Have a great weekend!
