I'm pretty sure every CE magazine has a 14 day sample menu, recipes and shopping list.

Most certainly! sub in as needed.

I use almond milk all the time. It's totally interchangable with regular milk and has fewer calories GREAT!
I RARELY eat red meat. Depending on the recipe (recipes that use ground beef/pork) you could substitute lean ground chicken or turkey. Recipes that use SLABS of beef or pork, I would either just find a new recipe, or if possible... let's say in a stir fry for example, use chicken and chicken or veggie broth, rather than a recipe that called for beef and beef broth.

Watching your carbs; simply eat fewer complex carbs and less fruit

I would recommend Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet book (get the ReCharged version). There are sample menus for vegetarian, vegan, families, gluten intolerance, and low carb (cooler #1). Also, if you have a better understanding of the Eat Clean philosophy, it will become a snap to make your own menus.

Vacation and travel is also covered in the book. Take a small cooler with you; pack with nutritous, clean foods. hard boiled eggs, fresh and dried fruit, fresh, raw veggies, nuts & seeds, energy bars (homemade if possible).

Eating out and ordering should be done carefully. Order grilled, poached and baked. Avoid fried (especially deep fried). Avoid creamy sauces. Always order sauces, dips and dressing on the side. Croutons on the side. Get sides of veggies (preferrably raw) instead of fries. Baked potatoes, with the fixings on the side or none at all. Steamed brown rice over a rice pilaff (you never know what they have put in there) I try to order chicken or seafood, grilled or poached.
When travelling, I now just simply bring my own small, purse size vials of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and packages of stevia...

Stay on track by remembering how great you feel just by simply getting through a meal without caving into the pressure around you. In the end YOU will come out a WINNER!
Good Luck and WELCOME to the team!

So i now subscribe to the CE magazine and LOVE IT.
14day trial of clean eating intrigues me,however,

*I am lactose intolerant and drink rice or almond milk
* I don't eat red meat (beef/pork) and
* I am watching my carbs

Can I modify some of the recipes in the 14 days ?

I am going to be on vacation for 5 of the 14 days...
I started today and will have 5 days clean eating before my trip
--tips for vacation and clean eating?
--tips for staying on track?

Thanks
