Clean eating is the best thing you can do for your body. It is more important than exercise! Your body is your closest ally, and feeding it well is an investment. Different people may define “clean” eating differently, but the main idea is to eat as close to nature as possible. No packaged, processed foods, no scary lab creations (Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce, anyone?), no added sugars or hydrogenated oils.
I’ve been experimenting with clean cooking for many years and have managed to keep it interesting, but there are always staples I can fall back on if I’m feeling kitchen-lazy.
I prep all my labor-intensive foods for the week on Sundays. Protein shakes and quick breakfasts can be thrown together in the early morning. It all depends on your schedule. This is a sample menu of a normal work-day for me.
