eating clean

So several people have commented, emailed and tweeted asking questions about this new clean eating I'm doing.

The idea started last year (I just like saying that..really November) when my mom and I were talking about eating healthy again after the holidays. She mentioned to me that a friend of hers had done this. So we talked about this for a couple months. Really getting ourselves pumped up to start in January. What we are following is The Eat Clean Diet.

It's amazing how great I am feeling after only a few days. And I love knowing everything that is going into my body. I love being able to read and pronounce everything going into my body. Nothing artificial (read: no sodas, diet sodas, splenda, sweet n low, etc.) To sweeten stuff, use honey or agave nectar. Everything is clean and natural.
John is enjoying it also. He doesn't follow to a T like I do, but he's doing great. And the yummy food we are enjoying helps. Last night we had salmon, roasted broccoli and whole wheat couscous with cranberries and almonds. And for dessert...spice broiled grapefruit.

Yeah, pretty good stuff.
You will start seeing some of these recipes popping up over at Lindsay's Kitchen. And a few holiday treats that I have not posted yet from November and December.
Check out the Eat Clean website. Also, the book is on sale at Target right now (my mom had to get it for me because our little Target here in Victoria did not carry it). But they did have the cookbook and I'm using that as well.
If you have any questions or comments email me or leave a comment.


  1. Well what a coincidence! I have had Tosca Reno's books for probably a year now and refer to them often. I am not the best at sticking to it 100 percent, but I've come a long way. My Zumba instructor friend, who used to be big into body-building, introduced me to clean eating. She's way better at it than I am! Congrats on your new venture. I can't wait to get my hands on your clean eating recipes!

  2. That sounds great! I have been doing WW and love it...LOVE it (of course it helps that it has worked for me). Last year I lost weight and this year my goal was to get fit and start training for the 2011 Houston Marathon. Right before I started my training, something popped up that is going to keep me from getting FIT this year. But, I'm still watching everything that goes in my mouth! Can't wait to try the recipes.

  3. lovely blog and great goals for 2010. sending hugs!
