Ok so I have been trying very hard to control what I put in my body, after being diagnosed with a gluten and casein allergy about a month ago I've been very conscience about what I eat. But I must admit that it's hard! Then I came across Tosca Reno's Eat Clean diet. It was like she made this book for me, not a diet really but a totally different way to look at food.
After reading the book, her latest 'Eat Clean Recharged', I was a little nervous. You basically have to plan out your entire day before leaving the house, since eating out is not recommended. So I made out my Monday meal plan, and with the help of the book, packed my cooler.
I know it is just the first day but WOW! I feel amazing! Not one digestive flare up all day (this is huge for me!) and I actually have energy after a full day of work. That hasn't happened in ages! So much energy I'm actually thinking about doing Jillian Michael's 30DS after I finish posting this blog!
Here's what I ate:
Breakfast - Millet with strawberries flaxseed and maple syrup
lean protein - Millet
Complex carb strawberries
Healthy fat - flaxseed
AM Snack - celery sticks with almond butter
Protein - almond butter
complex carb - celery
Lunch - Chicken salad
Protein - chicken
Complex carb - Romaine lettuce, spinach, zucchini
Healthy fat - olive oil
PM Snack - Almond & fig bar
Complex carb - fig
Healthy fat - almond
Dinner - Protein shake
Looking forward to another clean eating day tomorrow.
