Eating clean

Eating clean.. what in the world is that?  Well it is about eating healthier options, from each of the food groups, and less of the bad options.

You need to limit the processed foods (I know, I know, easier said than done). In today's world it is way easier to pick up something already fixed, or put together to make life easier when you get home. A great way to limit those processed foods, is to go to a farmers market and get all of your fruits, veggies, meats and bread for the week.  Then come home and portion things out in containers so when you get home, all you have to do is throw it all together and let it cook, or throw it in the crock pot in the morning and come home to a delicious meal!  You want to make sure you are increasing your veggies/fruits and decreasing anything with saturated fats. Limit your alcohol intake (don't binge drink), Stay away from sugars, use honey, maple syrup if needed (fruit is a good way to get that sweetness taste), but stay away from refined sugars, its super addictive. Decrease your salt intake. Eat less red meat, stay away from refined grains,

Not too difficult, just takes a little adjusting. If you eat salads, think about making your salad dressing at home, store bought is full of sugar! Making small adjustments at a time, help you to adopt a clean living lifestyle, that can last a lifetime!

Have a very fit day!
