Meal plan and clean eating

Meal planning is something that has made the biggest difference for me staying on track. Failing to plan means planning to fail! I truly believe this. Make a plan and it makes it so much easier to stick to clean eating.

What is clean eating?
Clean eating is eating five or six small meals a day made up of lean proteins and complex carbs. NO sugary, starchy or processed foods. It is NOT a fad diet- it is a lifestyle. It is not just to lose weight, although that's a perk. It is to get and stay healthy so you can be around for the long haul and feel good while you're on this earth. It keeps your metabolism revved and your body running as it should!

It means eating every few hours to keep your metabolism up and your sugar levels steady. When I first started, it was about getting rid of the processed foods. The key is to continue making PROGRESS. Little steps in the right direction will help with weight loss and overall health.

Here is my meal plan for the week. I'm new to this so just took a pic of my printed plan- a little ghetto I know! :/ Next week will be better! I'll learn how to export a document into a photo file. Anybody know how to do that?

I hope this helps some of you. We finished our prep work for the week today so it's not as stressful during the week. I'll be posting recipes as the week goes along. Stay tuned!
