I get it. People hear “eating clean” and they automatically imagine depriving themselves of all the foods they love, starving themselves or becoming some kind of freaky hippie (I love freaky hippies, by the way) but whoa, whoa, whoa......slow your roll.
Dramatic, silly declarations (ahem, excuses) like “I’ll WILL NEVER PUT ANYTHING IMPURE IN MY BODY EVER AGAIN!!”are passionate and while we admire your gumption, you’re not going to do that thing you just proclaimed.
Nope. You won’t. At least not long term. Because we are human and food is delicious and nobody is perfect. And sometimes you need a frigging cookie, ok?
Ok, deep breath. Let’s back it up.
Clean eating gets really easy when you start thinking like the smart grown up you are, and just dial it back to eating actual food. Try to scale back the process stuff aka most things with more than 5 ingredients or a bunch of stuff you can’t pronounce. Just keep it simple. Eat food, not boxed and preservative filled things that look like food, probably taste ok and have ZERO nutritional value! You need to eat real food. So let’s keep it clean.
2 Meyer Lemons
1 Chopped Sweet Onion
Black and white pepper
Lotsa (that’s a proper cooking term) garlic
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Make a foil pocket, roast in the oven at 400 degrees to your desired crispness.
Tastes like sin, but not bad for you at all.
It’s ok to have a little starch and some carbs are good for you ( the right ones, duh)
