So i’m eating… Not much but I’m eating at least something.
I have been reading up on eating clean, which basically involves eating foods which have not been processed and are so better for you, it includes cutting out alcohol too. So basically the rules are if you cant pronounce any of the ingredients, and theyre not something you can buy or have at home, its not really a clean food. Thats the short version! It’s basically eating whole foods. The less processed the better, So for example, eating an apple, thats clean, apple juice cleanish, and apple squash – not clean… DIRTY!
Home made soup – clean, tinned soup, not so much, cuppa soup DIRTY
You get the idea! for me the biggest struggle is going to be cutting sweetener out of my diet. Better get used to bitter coffee!! So i’m going to try and eat clean from now until Christmas, I’ve recently been craving fruit and nuts and potatos instead of sweets, so i guess my body is trying to tell me something at least!!
Today I went to the store and spent my last food money on foods I consider to be healthy and most importantly clean… So things like vegetables, fruit etc etc. I bought some foods which are not on my safe list at the moment – like potatos, and swedes – mainly carby vegetables. And I hope to be able to eat some of these this week!! Especially with my recent discovery of Shirataki Noodles. hashtag BULK BUY THOSE!
So thats this, I plan to eat clean till Christmas! Its not a diet, its a lifestyle choice I guess. although my issues with food are obviously going to impact on what clean foods I eat.
Also – I managed to get all the below for under £15 – something I consider an absolute bargin, I got some bits at the greengrocer, but most of it came from Lidl! Proof that healthy eating doesnt always have to be expensive! I’ll be aiming to post 1 recipie a day now so I can show you ways I’m eating clean!
