Hi everyone, did we all survive the blizzard?
The amount of snow that hit the northeast this weekend was absolutely crazy. Hopefully this is a “one and done” kind of winter, and there won’t be any more snow storms to look forward to for the rest of the season. If you couldn’t already tell, snow and I have a love/hate relationship.
Now that the storm is in the past, I am finally ready to go back to basics with my eating regimen. Homemade pancakes, pizza and cookies definitely got the best of me this weekend, and I am certainly feeling the after effects now.
Once we become accustomed to eating overly processed foods, it is easy to forget what natural foods taste like. Instead of trying to commit to a 100% clean diet off the bat, start by incorporating just one clean eating basic back into your life at a time.
Making the transition back to clean eating can be difficult, but it is an obstacle that we will all have to face at some point. The quicker we realize this, the quicker we will be on the road to living our best life!
Back to Basics
- Drink A LOT of Water
- Load up on Fruits, Veggies, Lean Meats & Whole Grains
- Limit Processes Foods
- Stop Mindless Eating
- Cook More, Order Less
- Eat Food in It’s Most Natural State
- Avoid Artificial Sweeteners
- Read Labels!
Clean eating does take some extra thought, preparation and creativity, but it’s not rocket science. Everyone is bound to fall off the bandwagon every once in a while, but what’s important is hopping right back on!
Happy Clean Eating!
