Hey Everyone! Welcome to the Greenleafgoddess 30 day clean eating challenge! I wanted to do this because I see a lot of “clean eating challenges” with false information or just telling you what you cannot eat but not outlining what you can which is A LOT! Food is not your enemy and I think that a lot of people do not get that you need to eat to live and be healthy the best way to do this is by eating 4-6 smaller meals throughout the day to keep your metabolism up or eat 3 really well-balanced meals you just have to find what works for you. On the list I made I put all the foods you can eat, foods to avoid, and foods to eat moderately that are CLEAN or cleaner than most. The only thing I have on this list that is mixed is Soy which has mixed research about its health benefits so I added it to the moderate category. Also, I want to stress that this challenge is NOT A DIET I do not believe in diets I believe in changing your eating habits for a healthier lifestyle. Eating clean makes you feel your best so that you can live your best life and that is what matters. Since my journey of losing 130 pounds my eating has gotten cleaner and cleaner right now it is as clean as it gets and I feel great every day so I wanted to share this clean eating list for everyone. On my blog, you can find recipes that are clean for this journey and you also can change to make vegan or vegetarian if they are not already. Eating clean is a lot easier than you think if you focus on all the great things you can eat and create with the healthiest ingredients possible. Many “dirty” dishes can be made into a clean version i.e my Vegan chili cheese fries 😉 . So try this for 30 days and share this list, let me know how you feel !
One thing I always hear people say is it is so hard and expensive to eat healthfully and I am here to tell you that it is not! It is actually very easy if you know what you are doing. Check out the infographic below to learn some tips on saving money on healthy food at the grocery store.
