Back at it again with the CLEAN EATING

food, Green, Lifestyle, Natural, simplicity, Uncategorized

Ever since I’ve gotten back from Miami, I’ve been eating not so clean. I haven’t been eating extremely bad either just not as clean as I normally do. I’ve been going out a whole lot more than usual since the weather is warmer. What can I say? I love rooftop bars!

It’s no secret that alcohol isn’t great for you and neither is most bar food. So, today I took it upon myself to go to the grocery store and buy whole foods. That’s not to say I won’t be going to the rooftops anymore, but I am going to be a whole lot more mindful of my intake of well anything again.

Before Miami, I was eating more salads, drinking more water and eating frozen and canned vegetables. Now, I’m taking it a bit further and I plan on eating fresh veggies that I can eat raw, steam, or sauté. Of course, I’m still going to be eating salads, but I want to start eating more of them more often.

As for meat goes, I’m already a chicken and seafood girl and only indulge in red meat very rarely. As I’m typing this I am eating a salad that has lettuce (duh,) green onions and cucumbers with some salt and pepper and homemade honey mustard dressing.

One cool thing I noticed while shopping today, the vegetables (lettuce, green onions) smelled extremely fresh like they were pulled straight from the dirt earlier this morning.  I am very much here for that!

Also, it might as well be Summer now because I found a really fresh watermelon that is so sweet! Look for black spots on the melon. This shows that bees have pollinated the watermelon, which gives it that sweet flavor! Fun fact!

Well, that’s all for today. I wanted to get back on my clean eating game and include you guys in it. So, I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading.

  1. Never knew that about pollen and watermelon. So cool!
    Also, clean eating has changed my life so much. I hope you experience the same benefits I have!

    1. Yes it is so cool! I recently found out from a friend who is studying plant science!
      I have to say it is life changing. The times that I’ve eaten clean, I feel so much more energetic..and the food tastes 10x better!

  2. Glad to see you’re going back to a healthier lifestyle! It’s important to remove foods that don’t serve you. One thing that always sticks in my mind is: Think of that one food you crave. Chances are that food is doing the most damage to your body. 🙂

  3. Good luck to you on your journey to eat clean! I’m sure you will find that once you begin, you’ll get the hang of the meal prepping, food shopping, etc. rather quickly, as most people do. I am a dietetics major, and I truly believe that clean eating is the best “diet” to follow, rather than all the diet fads which currently exist in the nutrition world. If done properly, it can truly be a sustainable and healthy way to eat. Feel free to check out my blog for clean eating recipes as well as tips for eating healthfully as a college student. Best of luck to you!
