Chit Chat: Clean Eating

Chit Chat: Clean Eating A couple of weeks ago Tracy and I decided to do the Clean Eating 7 Day Challenge. It was Tracy's bright idea to give it a whirl and I was up for giving it a go. Secretly though, I had my doubts about whether or not we would make it. I thought it would be too drastic of a change from our normal eating habits and that we both would be lucky to make it a couple of days. I mean, we were willing giving up chocolate, sweets, and fast food. I did have faith that Tracy would outlast me though.
I learned several things during our challenge though. It is very difficult to find clean foods in the small town that I live in. It is impossible to get clean bread here and unless you know what you are looking for, it takes a lot of time to scan labels for foods you can have. It took me like 20 minutes to find a pasta sauce that is clean. There are just so many foods out there that have sugar or chemicals in them, even foods you wouldn't think would.
During our week of clean eating, it came much easier than I thought. I was able to eat meals that I normally would, like lasagna, I just had to make clean choices when it came to ingredients. Tracy and I ate as much food as we wanted, we just ate clean food, and without even trying we both lost several pounds each. This really makes you wonder about the foods we had been eating. Have you tried clean eating before?
Tracy and I have decided that we want to continue eating healthier. We are going to try to eat clean 80% of the time. Living here, we can't buy all our foods totally clean, but we want to make the healthiest choices possible.

  7. I love the idea of clean eating, but I'm not perfect! Sometimes the preservatives are calling my name... it just gets hard for us to keep produce fresh when my boyfriend and I are both so busy! I always make sure we have fresh veggies and fruits available though :)

  8. Oh clean eating is something that we love to live up to! Living in California really helps. We totally indulge when we eat out but eating at home most of the time, using organic, healthy ingredients keeps us on track. I was attracted to your post because it keeps me inspired!

  9. What exactly is clean eating? It sounds difficult- I'm not sure I would make it!

  10. I should try this too! Nice inspiration. :)

  11. mmmmm che buono !!! Kiss

  12. It sounds interesing, I should try this too!

  13. that's why we succumb to fast food, because it is convenient! it takes more time and money to eat healthy, but i would certainly love to. good job, guys!

  14. I make my own pasta sauce, so I don't know if it's clean. Do they have a recipe book to amke the things too?

  15. I haven't done a clean eating before but when I was doing insanity workout and diet. I could get over the fact at all the calories I used to eat.

  16. Good for you ladies! It surely makes you feel better. Along with exercise it's great.

  17. Way to go! I would love to try doing this.


Thank you for your lovely comments. They really make our day.
