When we eat cleanly we are giving our bodies the best nutrients possible, and we’re still able to enjoy the foods we love. Why give up tacos or burgers, or our favorite desserts? It’s all about finding healthier ways to make these delicious treats so that we can have our “cake,” and eat it too!
Here’s what I mean. If you love burgers for example, why not start with a whole-grain bun? Use organic, grass-fed lean beef, baby spinach, tomato, onion, avocado, and top it off with a slice of low-fat cheese?
You can also make your own dressing to spice it up. How about low-fat mayonnaise, ketchup, and finely chopped dill pickles? Mix it up, and voila, a tasty topping!
Add a fresh salad made with lots of goodies like cucumbers, carrots and celery, and a side of baked sweet-potato fries, and you’ve got a really delicious meal that’s good for you, what a concept! A take on fast food that’s actually chock full of nutrients.
If you have a sweet tooth, how about chocolate banana bonbons? Check out the recipe in the April/May issue of Clean Eating Magazine.
Also take a glance at page 24, where I’m quoted in their “New Uses for Nut Butters” feature.
As the magazine says, “Clean Eating…Improving your life one meal at a time.”
