I have such passion about clean eating; it’s hard to contain my enthusiasm. When I share my eating plan and theories about why it is healthy, and why at almost 47 (2 weeks till my birthday) I feel stronger, with more energy and drive than ever in my life.
If you read my daily food blogs, you saw a consistent list of fresh, seasonal vegetables, lean protein, complex carbohydrates, whole grain breads low-fat dairy and water. I don’t write it every day but I drink about 90 ounces of water and 2-3 cups of green tea per day. I enjoy seasonal fruit and fresh vegetables every day and I cook 94% of my weekly meals myself. We eat at home a lot, and I often pack my lunch and keep it in a refrigerated sack.
I take daily vitamins, but I monitor not to go overboard with that since my diet is well rounded.
I enjoy my occasional treats, but keep the portion reasonable.
I enjoy red wine periodically, but in moderation.
I enjoy cooking with my kids, educating them about healthy choices, and having family time while I prepare meals.
