I have been incorporated the idea of clean eating into my diet as of late. Still can't commit to eating this way every single meal but want to keep it a minimum of 3 meals per week while enjoying regular/yummy food. It is a baby step. I appreciate the concept of consuming minimally processed , seasoned, cooked ingredients in order to receive the full benefits/vitamins/nutrients. It does take some adjustments going from eating flavorful, highly seasoned food to natural flavors bland.
It is difficult to deny that once you hit a certain age, it is incredibly easy to gain weight. I used to be the type of person who stayed skinny and had a hard time gaining weight when younger. However it is not that way at this age and time and especially after having a child. Due to the lack of exercise (laziness that is), I heavily focus on what I am to put in my mouth. Not always the healthy stuff but it is a work in progress.
Chis seeds have become my new addition. Can't believe these little seeds pack so much good stuff like fiber, Omega, protein and other awesome vitamins/minerals.
