Clean Eating: Round 2/ Day 14

I did it!  I finished :)  I succeeded in 28 days of clean eating.  I feel fantastic and am super glad that I decided to embark on this journey.  I would be lying if I said I didn’t’ want a large piece of dark chocolate right about now, but I have a pantry full of goodies that will help me create a clean eating dessert.  My goal is to whip something up tomorrow.  Stay tuned for a recipe.

Just because my meal plan is finished, doesn’t mean my clean eating journey is over.  I have learned so much these last 4 weeks I plan on carrying over the recipes, tips and tricks into “real life”.  But first, I am going to combine all of the leftover meal ingredients and create some of my own combos this week.  No wasting around here :)

But before I go raiding my fridge, here is a final look at today’s delicious eats…

Breakfast:

3/4 cup Greek yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp unsalted peanut butter topped with 1/4 cup Muesli, 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds and 5 grapes, halved

Snack #1:

1 bottle coconut water

1 cup sliced pineapple

7 walnut halves

Lunch:

Banh-Mi Style Sandwich:  Asian Slaw mixed with 1/4 cup Greek yogurt and juice 1/2 lime.  Top 1 Ezekiel Burger Bun with slaw and 1/2 cucumber thinly sliced and 3 oz cooked ground turkey.

Snack #2:

2 cup mixed sliced strawberries and blueberries

10 raw, unsalted almonds

Dinner:

Chicken and Sweet Potato Toss:  3 oz chicken, cooked, 1 sweet potato, peeled, baked and chopped, 1 cup broccoli, chopped and steamed, 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced, and 1 sprig of thyme sautéed with olive oil.

Highlights:  There is nothing more delicious than a bowl of fresh berries.  Tastes so good it almost seems naughty.  Add a little protein with a handful of nuts and it’s a perfect way to curb your hunger in the afternoon.  Yum!

Lowlights:  No lowlights today.  Went out with a bang!

Thank you to everyone who supported me through this journey.  I appreciate your encouragement.  It always feels good to have people in your corner :)  This will be the last of my clean eating posts.  However, I have had so much fun participating in Jenn’s WIAW, I am going to continue to post my eats on a weekly basis.

Hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day!

    Am just getting the chance to catch up on blog posts now. Looks like you have had an amazing summer!

  4. Congratulations!! You should be so proud of yourself for this accomplishment. I’m trying to go gluten free and seeing your dishes has given me some ideas for eating GF.

    Congratulations! Looks like you did a great job with your clean eating. Lots of yummy healthy foods!

  6. This is an amazing accomplishment. I know it is very hard to eat clean all the time. It can be quite a process. I think I missed the beginning of your journey, so were you doing this for health reasons or just something to try? If you don’t mind me asking. Also, did you find that you dropped a lot of weight by eating this way or did you do a lot with exercise too? Do you plan on continuing eating clean or doing a easier version of clean eating?

      Thank you :) I have been wanting to do some sort of clean out since I had my daughter. I usually do some sort of cleanse once a year but since I am still breast-feeding that wasn’t an option. So I settled on an elimination diet and it did the trick. I was just feeling bloated, icky and mucked up. I might have lost weight but I don’t have a scale. I know my clothes are fitting differently but that might also be due to the fact that I don’t feel bloated anymore. I don’t have the time to exercise now, unfortunately. I have always been an active person but am finding it hard to fit it into my work schedule on top of being a full time mom. As my daughter is getting older I am finally beginning to take some time for myself and exercise is next on my list. I intend on continuing to eat clean to the best of my ability. For me, it is all about being aware of what I am putting into my body and how it makes me feel. Doing the plan for 4 weeks, I was able to collect some good ideas for future eating (which I have already put into action today). Let me know if you have any further questions. I am happy to help in any way I can. Thanks for reading!
