Eating Clean: The Beginning

As is the same every year, July held host to a wealth of Christmas Press events which officially put me in a festive mood. It made me think about how full my fridge and cupboards would be filled with fudge, cheese, cured meats, artisan bread and lots of cookies. Add mince pies to the mix and you have a recipe for disaster when it comes to healthy eating.

So, how am I going to stop myself from completely de-railing as we head into the Autumn season?

 It’s tempting to say, “What the hell. I already blew it with that Hoagie from New York Deli, so why not continue inhaling everything with butter and sugar that’s in sight?” Tempting, yes.

But is it necessary to be an all-or-nothing kind of gal? Of course not. I have a plan!

It involves starting the day with a healthy breakfast and  focusing on eating whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins the rest of the day. This will help me to balance those decadent dinner parties and piles of seasonal treats.

Here’s a snapshot of my first week of clean eating!

Stay tuned and follow me on my healthy living journey…

  1. Hey Jess, hope you’re reaping the rewards of your clean eating efforts. Those brekkies sure look really great. Would be brilliant to get the clean eaters of Cardiff together some time. Keep feeding your body and mind kindly. Ruth
