Clean Eating for Beginners

I have been learning so much personally about clean eating and have been making baby steps, so to speak, about food choices in our pantry and fridge.  Clean eating is a lifestyle that can lead to preventing diseases, remove icky toxins from your body, lose weight and just feel better. The biggest challenge is just getting started and knowing what to replace with food items you have always used.

 

Simply put, clean eating is eliminating processed foods and sugary drinks and base your food choices on whole foods and pure water.

Sounds simple right?

 

Uhhh…actually, it can be a hard switch if this is opposite of what you’ve always done.

 

For me, many questions came up like…

Do I buy only organic?”

Can I still eat dessert?”

What about baking?”

How do I start?”

Will it be expensive?”

How do I get my kids (even teenagers) to like it?”

How do I meal plan?”

 

Maybe you have asked these questions as well?

 

I invite you join me on the journey to clean eating.  Let’s grocery shop together.  Let’s make healthy food swaps together.  Let’s learn to budget and save money together.  Let’s meal plan together.  And let’s be leaders in our home with healthy food choices.

  1. Thie is definitely something I need to do.. I’ve had a hard time keeping my food bill down when I buy fresh and healthy foods! Would love to learn some more

  2. I really need to start eating more “clean” I am far too addicted to sugar. I try to follow the 80-20 rule, but I know I should really cut back even further on the junk.

  3. Hi Claire! Thanks so much for linking this up! I have been working towards clean eating in our home too. Should be so easy, but it’s not! Takes hard work and commitment. Thanks for some much needed motivation 🙂
