As I sit back and reflect on the past week, I realized that I really need to get myself back on track with eating. Have you ever felt this way? Holidays always throw me off my game because I have a hard time throwing out perfectly good food. One of the ways that I help myself not get terribly out of control, is to make better options for appetizers and sides. For example, I decided to make a cleaner version of spinach artichoke dip, with cauliflower puree as the base instead of sour cream or mayonnaise, or whatever is used to typically make spinach artichoke dip. I also made a greek yogurt dip for fresh fruit, and put out hummus with fresh cut veggies. As a side dish I made clean sweet potato home fries. I also planned to make green beans with almonds but never got around to it. The other way I try to keep myself in check on holidays is to watch my portions. Don't let me kid you, I partake in dessert and the traditional ham, but I keep control of the amount of food eaten.
Now, the tough part is getting back on track. So, as I start my next challenge I am going back to eating as clean as possible. Clean eating is a lifestyle not a fad or diet. It is fueling your body with the good stuff to get you through daily activities and workouts. So who is ready to take this journey with me and get ready for summer?
If you are interested, I have a 7 day trial group starting May 4th, so submit your email to me and I will contact you to enter this group. You can only do one 7 day trial every 3 months.
Here is my meal plan for the week, what is yours?
