Hi everyone! I know you are feeling the TGIF as much as I am! Today is the last day of clean eating month! I had written up a great post about this month on my laptop, but it is STILL not fixed :(. So here is just a quick summary:
I have really learned a lot this month about what more natural eating can do for your body. My tummy has been functioning VERY well and I never felt that "overstuffed" feeling after meals. I also (bonus) lost a few pounds. I think the biggest surprises for me were how easy it was to give up bars (which had become a very regular part of my diet), that Starbucks treats do not require flavored syrup to taste good, and that natural, healthy snacks are much more filling than their faker packaged counterparts. I am definitely going to be increasing the percentage of my eats that are "clean" and am hoping to have 85-90% clean days. I have been missing packaged pasta and a few of my other favorite "treats." To finish up clean eating month, I will be having a clean din din tonight of eggs, asparagus, fresh fruit, and potatoes!
Ok- I received two fun packages yesterday. First, POM juice- I can't wait to review this juice and use it in some recipes:
And....the BEST baked goods ever from Gina.
Macaroons, chocolate macaroons, and super charge me cookies!!! She also included a VERY sweet card. Let me tell you- I had a nibble of a macaroon yesterday and it is clearly the BEST cookie I have ever tasted! I plan to gobble another few tomorrow after clean month ends! Thank you so much Gina!
Today will be filled with work, teaching body step, enjoying my clean eating and relaxing! What is your Friday looking like?
