I have been following the calorie intake from Spark, however, I notice that with the Eat Clean diet I have been under calories a few times so I just find a snack to reach my calorie intake.
Milk, you can drink skim milk, almond breeze or the soy milk, it's your preference. I use skim milk for recipes (because it's cheaper by the gallon) and if I want to have a smoothie or something, I will drink the either the (light) almond milk and/or (light) soy milk. The choice is up to what you like.
Avocado, yummy, I love them too. I will actually use my avocado and make the guacamole recipe in the eat clean diet cookbook, I also put it on top of my turkey burgers and/or veggie burgers, on top of salads, it's a great thing to add, because yes, although it's high in fat, it's a healthy fat for you.
Protein powders, I had a tough time with this one too, because when I looked in the stores, most of them had things I couldn't pronounce and also had the added sugars we are trying to avoid with eating clean. What I finally did was go to GNC and they have a 100% Whey Protein (Lean) that is all natural things in it and no added sugar. I don't mind that it's unflavored, because it picks up the flavor of the things I put it in. I have used it in smoothies, in my oatmeal when I want a "power" breakfast, and even in chili - the options are endless. I would be interested in what other people are using for their protein as well...because I am always up to looking for other options.
4. What protein powders do you recommend?
