I am the only one in my household who eats clean, so I understand where you are coming from. If you are a subscriber to the clean eating magazine, there is a 2 week meal plan in each issue that serves only one person. I usually pick and choose which recipes I like a just make the same thing each day of the week. Or I cook a regular sized recipe and portion is out by serving size for the entire week. Then all I have to do is throw it in the microwave and I've got a good clean meal! If you do choose to eat clean, do all of your cooking on one day, otherwise you are going to be in the kitchen all day every day. My husband is constantly saying "you're cooking again!?"
Proverbs 3:7-8 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
1 Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.

@HERETIC_COY How are things going? I am interested in clean eating as well. I have been for awhile now but kinda have gotten off track. I read this book called Clean Food by Terry Walters last summer and it is really good to have on hand. Great recipes and also sorts things by seasons (that's important too! To eat with in the seasons) And gives tips on how to take the enzymes out of beans that make them make you gassy. I'd love to make little challenges, baby steps, and then once I've incorporated those into my everyday move on to new one! Send me a message! Lets do this together!
Welcome, I am new to clean eating as well and have a family that isnt very interested in it. But for now I am concentrating on myself and when I cook family meals trying to make them clean. Luckily my children are young enough that I get to say what they do and dont eat!! Husbands a different matter LOL

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome Rosie! This is a great team and we have a ton of good tips for you. It can be tough trying to start anything health related when you're not living in a supportive environment. However, start making some good changes for yourself and people around you might get on board when they start seeing how good you feel!
I like to invite you to browse our threads, and if you are interested, join us for a mini 2week challenge (right now we are food journalling). Just look for the thread under "general discussions".
Good to have you! TG

My name is Rosie and I'm a total newbie to eating clean. So new in fact I haven't started yet. I've always wanted to try eating clean because it makes total sense. My issue comes from the fact that I live with a family that is NOT interested in their health. Does anyone have any tips on doing this while working around what other people in my house and eating.
