How do you prefer to eat, clean or dirty?
For the past several months I have been investigating the whole “eating clean” thing. Aside from doing to standard Google research, I follow several “healthy living” blogs in which I see on a daily basis the progress that people make from eating healthy and clean. A few of my favorites are:
- He and She Eat Clean
- Butler, Party of 2
- Peanut Butter Fingers She is not necessary clean, but many of her meals are and she is so healthy.
If you aren’t sure what “clean eating” is, basically it is eating foods that are natural to the earth like fruits and veggies in combination with lean meats, eggs and better for you carbohydrates and fats. I am so not a professional, in fact I just decided a few days ago to give it a try.
My mission is to be healthy. I’m not trying to be drastic or try a fad diet; this is not a diet, it’s a choice to eat better overall. I’m tired of feeling crappy after a meal and want to feel full and satisfied without feeling guilty or gross afterward.
If you don’t know me, I am not a professional in food or exercise. I am just a regular person who is tired of being tired. This is not my attempt at a New Years resolution either. I haven’t joined a gym, and probably will not.
With that said, I am hoping this blog will help me to keep my motivation and get some tips and advice on being healthier. Along the way I will share things that I learn and hopefully change my view on food.
I am a HUGE food lover, and this is going to be a challenge. I am looking to eat good food that is also good for you.
Wish me luck, I will need it!
