    but i know that when i do "eat clean" i feel markedly better and i can totally notice the difference!

    yea me too. I've tried cheat meals here and there and feel horrible. The worst stomach aches and bloat of my life!

    I've never tried Clif bars before... Will def pick one up tomorrow.

A easy way to make the transition is by finding foods and recipes that you like. Eating clean and healthy does not mean boring and plain. For example today I has sesame mango salsa chicken with brown rice for lunch and fajitas for dinner. They were both amazing!
    Wow, your meals sound delicious.

    I'd love to eat like this, I'm just not sure I have the knowledge or discipline. Do you have a good website for more information?

    It's a type of diet, more like a lifestyle of eating than a diet... eating healthy, small portions, whole grains, etc.

    I have the cookbook but it's too expensive to eat that way when it's just me. When K comes home, I'll start it up again.
    Next time you shop on Amazon, click through this link to help an amazing veterans' organization!

    yup you are right, it is a lifestyle change, my whole family eats like this. and we will never go back. I have yet to buy the book since I subscribe to the magazine and I look online for my recipes.

    LOL. You can get more info by searching clean eating in google. Or even I think Tosca Reno has a clean eating book along with her cookbooks.

    Here is the recipe for the mango chicken if you want to try it out

    Ingredients

    Rice:
    2 1/2 Cups Water
    2 Tsp Salsa (Add as much as you like I did more like 3 tbsp)
    1 Cup Brown Rice

    Chicken:
    2 tbsp Sesame Seeds
    1 tsp Olive Oil
    1 Lb Boneless, skinless Chicken Breast
    4 Cloves of Garlic, minced
    1/4 tsp Ginger
    1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    1 mango, peeled & diced
    3 medium on0the-vine tomatoes, chopped
    Juice from half a lime


    Directions

    1. Prepare rice according to pacakge directions, adding salsa at same time as water

    2. Toast sesame seeds over low heat for 2-3 minutes over low heat until golden brown. Move to a plate and allow to cool

    3. Pour olive oil into pan, swirl and add chicken . Sprinkle w/ garlic, giner and black pepper. Increase heat to medium and cook about 4 minutes, stir ocasionally.

    4. Add diced mango to pan, spooning evenly over chicken. Saute mango for about 2 minutes stirring ocasionally. Add tomatoes and squeeze lime juice over top. Simmer for about 5 minutes, until tomato is hot and mango is juicy. Stir in sesame seeds and serve over rice.

    Number of Servings: 4


    Try eating "clean" for a couple of weeks and you'll feel amazing!

    I've had to cut down on some of my meals and sticking to stuff we keep on hand at home more. I still experiment with new recipes every time I get a new Clean eating mag though. You can always freeze, or save what you don't use

    Since my surgery I have been kind of forced to "eat clean" so to speak. I can only eat say 1/4 a cup of food at a time, sometimes less. I cant eat a whole lot pf sugar. I HAVE TO drink a crap ton of water otherwise I dehydrate within a day or less. Also, I have found that when I "snack" on granola bars and crap, I feel like poop!!!

    All I eat really is protein and veggies...
