A little while back I mentioned some goals that I was going to try to work on. The one that I have been focusing on the most is pack a healthy lunch at least four times a week.
How have I been doing? Well, I have been really concentrating on clean eating and making sure I have a "clean" lunch has been working well. I been having turkey wraps with mustard, cut up carrots and celery. I will either have an apple or a clementine to go along with it. My Mom also made this really good lentil soup so I was able to pack that a few days. I haver been having smoothies for breakfast. I usually mix in protein powder, spinach or kale, chia seeds, flax seeds, yogurt, and either some store bought green juice or some water. It usually keeps me full for several hours.
I've been setting time aside on Sundays to cut up veggies for my snack and to also put some aside for my daughters lunch. I have been drinking plenty of water and I have also cut out the cream in my coffee. I am still using splenda, but I hope to get rid of that soon also.
I have lost 2 lbs since last week and I am pleased with that. I haven't been exercising much at all, but I know I will get back to it.
I have been searching the internet for lunch and dinner ideas and have found some really good recipes. I think as long as I plan ahead and prepare, I will be able to continue on my healthy journey.
Its a struggle, but I feel like its one that will be well worth it. So, I plan to keep this clean eating going and hope to incorporate it into more meals and snacks as the time goes on.
Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.
Any ideas or suggestions for clean eating?
