Eating Clean and loving it!

I am so excited about the eating clean lifestyle and how it can change your life!  I have been able to motivate my friends and be an inspiration to them!  That feels so good!  I want to encourage anyone out there that is struggling with weight loss, to try Clean Eating… it really works. 

Here are a few recipes to get you started…

Eat-Clean Egg Salad

1/4 c. fat free cottage cheese

1 T skim milk

1 t. mustard

4 hardboiled egg whites, diced

1 hardboiled yolk

2 T. celery

Dash of sea salt & curry powder

Whip cottage cheese and milk until smooth in medium sized bowl.  Blend remaining ingredients except egg whites, with cottage cheese mixture.  Add diced egg whites and mix well.  Serve on toasted whole grain or Ezekiel bread.

Smashed Potatoes

1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

1 parsnip, peeled and cut into chunks

1 c. cauliflower, cut into florets

3 T. plain, low-fat yogurt

1/2 to 3/4 c. low sodium chicken (or veggie) broth

sea salt

 

Bring potatoes and parsnips to a boil.  Add a dash of salt.  Remove from heat once cooked and drain, reserving cooking liquid for later use.  Place cooked vegetables in large mixing bowl.  Steam cauliflower until tender.  Once tender, add to potato/parsnip mix.  Using a potato masher (or hand mixer) mash the vegetables well.  Add the yogurt, seasonings and chicken broth.  Continue to mash until smooth.   Enjoy!

Eating Clean is not a fast solution to weight loss, but it is a permanent one.  Start today!!  You won’t be sorry!  =)  Eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink water and green tea, give up sugar and sodas!!  (It isn’t that hard) Eat lean meats, egg whites, oatmeal, whole grains… no artificial stuff.  No preservatives… eat as natural as possible.  Get motivated!!
