Of course, working with two boys, I knew it would be a challenge, and something that I would have to slowly incorporate into our meals, mixed with our standard goto favorites.
My initial plan to ease us into the complete food overhaul, was to make a clean dinner once a week.
I chose either Sunday night dinner or meatless Monday. My first dinner was grilled chicken, green beans with almonds and roasted sweet potato. But my secret ingredients were lots and lots of fresh herbs, mango and coconut oil.
Over the course of the last two months, I have managed to almost completely change our breakfast (Smoothies), lunch (Salads & lean proteins) and dinners into clean meals. Sure, we have Chinese takeout sometimes, but for the most part I enjoy cooking at home. I know what I'm making is healthy, clean, and really very tasty.
I was also really surprised to see how many great things you could make and still be, "clean".
From appetizers to soups, of course salads, standard dinner favorites and even desserts, all can be made very clean.
I just can't recommend enough trying out clean eating. Try one meal a week at first, and then go from there.
