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.
