One of the most important aspects to clean eating is grocery shopping (duh, no brainer, you say). As this new take on eating is very new to me, I am still slowly getting accustomed. Freshness is a word almost synonymous with clean eating, as you should keep in mind to only eat things that have the ability to spoil quickly. I formerly would grocery shop weekly, however I have found that it is much easier to split my grocery shopping in half to ensure that I have the freshest of foods and that they will be consumed rather than sit and rot before I get to eat it!
In short, when you go grocery shopping, make sure you're only purchasing foods that have a "BEST BUY: insert date" stamp on it. Any food with a shelf life, you do not want. This does not include frozen fruits and veggies and some whole grain products, of course!
I have a few big things I want to try this week:
(1) Incorporating pre-packaged frozen fruits into my clean eating regimen (I swear by frozen veggies, and often times I put my fresh fruit in the freezer to make it more of an enticing snack!)
(2) Create a super awesome July 4th dinner that the fiance will enjoy (could be a difficult task.. but I am doing my research and through the Eat-Clean Diet cookbook, as well as other recipes from eating-clean websites, I have found some keepers to try)... TO BE CONTINUED....
