Clean Eats

Hey guys!  Whether you are already maintaining a healthy lifestyle or are just getting started with  the new year, Alton Brown is on to something.  I saw Mr. Brown on the Dr. Oz show and was in awe of his 50 pound weight loss with his handy list system.

For me, I am better when I have a list.  It gives me something to check off(even if its only mentally) and pushes me to get through the task at hand.

List 1: Foods to Eat Daily

  • Dark leafy greens
  • Nuts
  • Carrots
  • Green tea
  • Whole grains
  • Fruit

List 2: Foods to Eat Three Times a Week

  • Yogurt
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • Sweet potato
  • Avocado
  • Oily fish
  • Tofu

List 3: Foods to Eat Once a Week

  • Red meat
  • White starch
  • Desserts
  • Alcohol

List 4: Foods to Never Eat / Foods to Avoid at All Times

  • Soda
  • Processed meals
  • Canned soups
  • “Diet” anything

Alton's lists make clean eating a no brainer.  Although I am not sure I could follow the never drink soda again rule because sometimes you want one but everything else seems to be legit.

Happy clean eating!  xoxo, Kate :)
