Matt and I are trying a new 'diet'.
Not a salad only, starve yourself diet.
We are eating clean...eating things the way nature entended.
1. We are trying to get back into shape. We need to feed our bodies with the proper nutrition so that we are healthy inside and out. It will give us energy and make us feel better all around. We will eat to make our bodies thrive, instead of filling them with garbage because we have a craving or because we are just bored.
2. Eating Clean is easier. The fewer the ingredients in a recipe, the better. This will definately help me out in the kitchen!
3. It's about choosing fresh, whole foods with all of their nutrients intact. This means no boxed meals or processed food While they may be conveinient, they are also detrimental to your health.
Here is list of typical processed foods:

So far, our grocery list has been pretty darn good. But we are still going through the rest of food that was bought before the clean eating began. I admit I had two regular cokes-not even diet, and I had some no so good for me meals-out this weekend. But today is a new day and it's back to the gym for some serious work.
