Baby steps are key. It has taken me almost a full year....10 solid months of baby steps. I am there though. I am at about 90 to 95% clean, not sure if I will ever get 100% clean but I'm very happy at 90 to 95%. Little by little things were taken out of the diet...no more boxed mixes, no more frozen lunches (huge thing for me)I make pretty much everything from scratch. I still will buy certain items for the kids...but I will only buy certain brands....Kashi, Annies and Back to Nature are our primary brands. As far as Rice-a-roni or Kraft they don't have a spot on my shelf anymore.
As far as Tosca book why don't you go check it out at the library. There are so many recipes in the book that are so wonderful and so easy. My kids have enjoyed nearly every recipe...even tofu mousse!!! which I never thought I would get them to eat.
Good luck and best wishes Tracy

I find all the clean eating material almost overwhelming! I am trying to eat clean for one meal a day. Then I hope to add a second meal...my snacks are clean, for the most part. I think baby steps is the key!
me too. I have always loved cooking from scratch and I'm a bit of a health freek too so almost everything has always been converted to low fat, high fibre as well. (you notice I say almost everything!)

Hey, i thumbed thru Tosca's books about a month ago, yet didnt get any. No real reason for it. Just thought i wouldnt enjoy the food. Its hard for a newbie! I have been making small changes, like cooking much more from scratch, and my body has already appreciated it. My family's better as well. I could use some everyday advice about some of the foods that may suit a newbies taste!! Thanks, and looking forward to meeting you all. Amy
