Hi Jewel and Agoal
@ Jewel-I am certainly no expert in this forum but you can try soy or almond milk as a substitute for cream in your coffee. They can be a bit richer in taste and Vanilla soy milk is also an option. emoticon
@Agoal-I have found that by browsing through the posts in this forum and on the Vegetarian/vegan forum I have learned a lot. I picked up a copy of Clean Eating magazine at the store and am finding it very informative. emoticon

HI, I just starting reading the Tosca Reno books and have been visiting some other 'eat clean' sites. I am slowly easing into the eating clean..i have a 9 year old daughter and husband so i think going slowly is best. i went to the grocery store today and bought a few eating clean products (whole wheat pasta, organic brown rice cakes, organic spaghetti sauce and agave nectar which i read is a handy product to have on hand as a sugar substitute in recipes).....i am wondering what some of the staple meals are for those of you that are already practicing eating clean and if you have any highly recommended websites or books?? thanks!

Hi everyone. I too am new here. I am trying to get off the sugar and artificial sweeteners. I figure fresh fruit, fresh veggies and fresh meat. I do drink one cup of coffee in the morning. Because of acid refux I use half and half. What a shock a couple days ago as I'm reading the ingred. Half and Half lists corn syrup as the 2nd ingred.Wow... I guess I can use skim milk but that isn't quite as nice.I did get off the Coffee Mate though so was proud of myself for that.

What does everyone use in their coffee if anything?

Hi Lynn,

I'm with you on your quest/ions.I'm looking for as much info,.and advice as I can get.

I pretty much completely transformed my lifestyle in Oct. after reading The China Study. Principles are similar with the exception of the issue of eating grains. The jury is still out on that for me.

I just joined this team and am looking forward to making new friends and learning lots of new information to help me on my journey to a healthier life.

Hi everyone! I'm new to this team and wanting to learn more about the eat clean principles. I'm looking forward to others opinions and suggestions. I once in a while will pick up a copy of the eating clean magazine and I have looked at Tosca Reno's books as well as the websites. Just trying to constantly keep in my mind to not to eat processed and to head for whole foods.
