Keeping it clean
Monday, February 07, 2011
This is the beginning of week three of cleaner eating. It's getting easier to remember to plan meals and keep the fridge full of fruits and veggies. My experiments cooking with tofu are going great. There are a million recipes out there for really good meals using clean foods.
The benefits of eating this way are really evident. I feel so so much better. I'm sleeping all night, which is a miracle and I feel rested when I wake up. That hasn't happened in so long that I had almost forgotten what it felt like.
Yesterday I had brunch with one of my sons at our favorite place and was able to order a salad that had pears, raisins and veggies and asked for no cheese and no dressing. It was really filling and I felt fine to run an hour later. If I had ordered my usual omelet (with hash browns and toast) I wouldn't have been running I can tell you that.
So, I'm looking forward to what week three has in store. I've been looking at juicers and may pick one up this week.
