First off ~ WELCOME and CONGRATS!!! Eating clean is wonderful. It can be a bit daunting at first, but you can do it.
What I did when I first started is made a meal plan for the week and it was basicaly the same thing for breakfast, snack, lunch, pm snack and dinner. It may seem a bit boring. But I learned portion sizes and was able to create a small, simple grocery list and learn my new way of eating WITHOUT being overwhelmed.
My usual produce list for people for 2 weeks looks like:
1 head of romaine lettuce,
a container of Fresh Express Spinach,
a bunch (4 - 5)of tomatoes on the vine
a bunch of bananas
7 - 10 oranges,
7 - 10 apples
a bunch of celery
a pound of carrots
Start off buying for a week. See what you run out of, what you have left over. Over a few weeks, you'll figure it out.
Have you bought any of Tosca Reno's books? Robert Kennedy's (Tosca's husband) Clean Eating Magazine is another incredible source of information and recipes.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I'll help out however I can.
Do what you can - focus on what you can change, do not dwell on what you can't change.
