Why eat clean?

Do you struggle to lose weight? Struggle with maintaining a healthy weight? Sick of feeling tired, low energy, depressed and bad about yourself? Do you have issues “eliminating” daily (sorry if TMI)!! Do you want brighter skin and more energy? Do you want to anti-age daily and be fit for life?? Then you definitely need to join the “dirtclean” lifestyle.

Listen, I have SO been there before! Yo-yo dieting, stepping on the scale and being depressed, the strict calorie-deficit diets, eating “health” bars and “diet” shakes for a meal, never being full, etc. Y’all this isn’t the way to live or to do it! The BEAUTY of eating clean and following what I call a “dirtclean” lifestyle is that you can eat so much (clean) food and you are not deprived. Eating clean is about COMPLETELY ELIMINATING chemicals from your food choices: No fried food. No fast food. No soda. No candy. No processed food. No donuts (gross!) No dairy (occasional grassfed cheese, organic creamer, organic yogurt in moderation-ok). No vegetable oils (coconut oil, grassfed butter is it!) No artificial sweeteners (yep-cut out the Splenda, sweet n low, etc. That stuff is poison). No sugar (besides organic maple syrup, coconut palm sugar, raw organic/local honey, etc.). Get it? I promise this is easy once you get used to it and begin to reap the benefits.

“Oh gosh so what am I going to eat?!?!?”,you may be asking. SO MUCH! I enjoy eating organic oats/oatmeal, eggs, fresh fruit and veggies (dirty dozen = buy organic, always), sweet potatoes, organic rices, quinoa, almond butter, organic peanut butter (limited amounts of this…peanuts are a legume i.e. still somewhat inflammatory but I do love peanut butter and life is too short to give it up 100%), grassfed beef, lamb, chicken (clean meats from quality farmers) etc. etc. ! Once you start cooking your own food and learning HOW to shop in a grocery store and how to read labels, you will start to feel amazing and see results, and this all becomes second nature. The weight will start to fall off. You will become more “regular”. Your skin will be healthier. YOU will be healthier. You will feel better and look better and live longer.

Our bodies are not designed to digest and eat chemicals. Step away from the aisles of processed junk in the grocery store. Refuse the donuts and the cake (it’s pure sugar and bleached flour! YUCK). Stop eating fast food. Stop eating candy. You are basically eating chemicals and AGING yourself every step of the way. Not to mention that all those chemicals in processed food cause cancer and lead to other diseases as well.

So, are you ready? Are you ready to FIND and BECOME your best self? Are you ready to improve your life, both inside and out? Go clean out your pantry and your fridge. THROW IT ALL AWAY (my motto). Start fueling your body with the nutrition it needs! Gain self-confidence. Treat your body like the temple it is-stop abusing yourself with poisonous junk in the form of food. Be #dirtclean
