2 Week Clean Eating Challange

I tried out this 2 week Clean Eating Challange on Buzzfeed and loved it. The meals were yummy, I was never hungry and my energy and motivation picked up. Shedding a few pounds, that snuck on with long days at work, was an added bonus. Definitly a good one to get you back on track.

Clean Eating

The meal plan was disigned for spring/summer, so there’s a lot of salads in there. I’ll be creating my own plan this week for more heartier, comfy recipes to warm the cockles.

I was’t the most strict on myself but I’ve learned a little more about portion control and I’m off the coffee again – yaaay!

Yes prep and effort is involved but it’s all there in the plan, it couldn’t be easier. Give it a go, you’ll feel awesome especially in the run up to the biggest eating event of the year. Christmas that is.

Now to keep it up.

This dish is amazing for the cold wintery days. When you fancy something soupy but with a bit more substance – this is your man!

It looks kind of just like eggs, tomato sauce and a bit of greens but oh boy is it so much more.

You can switch the greens out for kale, spinach or anything you like really. It has a long ingredients list – don’t let this scare you. It’s so good.
