Ever since I had my daughter, I have become conscience about the products I use in my home and the food I put into my body. I strive to keep as many chemicals and artificial ingredients out of my home as possible! I try to eat a primarily clean eating diet, preferring to make most of my food from scratch, whenever possible.
Eating clean to me means using ingredients that come from the earth. Wholesome recipes that include meats, dairy, whole grains and nuts, and plenty of fresh veggies and fruit! If you’re new to eating a clean diet, you’re in for a treat! Clean eating tastes wonderful and fresh, and it makes you feel great.
I have put together a free clean eating menu plan for you to try out your first week. You can also check out my clean eating snacks to go along with the menu plan. Over the next few weeks, I will be adding more clean eating recipes for you try! Today is the first of them, and I have compiled 24 clean eating breakfasts. I hope you’ll try them and make a commitment to eating a cleaner diet.
