I started with breakfast. My favorite breakfast when not on my cheat day is eggs, cottage cheese (low fat, no salt) with blueberries or 2 TBSP of cream of Brown Rice ...it used to be eggs, oats with blueberries, but I'm sensitive to grains so I don't eat oats often. Or sometimes I'll just do eggs with a large green salad with cherry tomatoes.

The best way to go about it is any way that makes it easiest for you. You are making healthy lifestyle choices, so this is something you will want to commit to and feel comfortable (not overwhelmed) doing.

Breakfasts for me are usually:
1) whole grain (but gluten free or spelt) toast with some spinach and/or sliced tomatoes, poached eggs and maybe a slice of nitrate free ham or bacon
2) oats with fruit and almond milk. Sometimes I add some whey protein if I'm doing weight lifting
3) on Sundays I like to enjoy some buckwheat pancakes, French toast or some kind of egg breakfast like Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine. Sunday is a splurge day for me, but still a CLEAN day. Just more calories. he he

Lunch:
1) some kind of a soup with a chicken salad or egg salad wrap and some veggie sticks
2) some broiled chicken tossed with veggies and buckwheat or other GF noodles or rice
3) grilled cheese using my sandwich maker with fresh veggies and dip

(I make my chicken and egg salad using Greek yogurt mixed with a very small amount of mayonnaise. I also like to make my own mayonnaise), mixed with some smoked paprika or some chopped fresh dill

Dinner:
I have tons of favorites that I use, but here are some quick and easy standbys
1) personal pizza made with a whole grain pita or homemade (or storebought frozen) GF crust. I add whatever is on hand. I had one tonight topped with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, red peppers and a bit of cheese
2) lean steak stir fried in a bit of coconut oil, toss in some fresh broccoli, bean sprouts, slivered carrots, mushrooms, water chestnuts.... whatever you got. I don't use soy sauce, but I would have used lite Tamari sauce until I found "coconut aminos" (which is very hard to find but is a great substitute for soy sauce.) Throw in some cooked brown rice, noodles or quinoa
3) Hmmm... seasoned, cooked chicken breast goes good with just about anything. I like to sometimes serve up a sweet potato with the "fixins" like sour cream, chives... tossed salad on the side drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.




Hope this helps!

I'm new to this team, and am going to try and incorporate clean eating. I am going to try breakfast and lunches first, then maybe next month do dinners. Does this sound like a good way to go about it?

What are everyone's favorite breakfasts? Lunches? I think If I can find 3 good ones for both lunches and breakfasts, I can just rotate them.

Any suggestions?
