Clean eating support?

I know there's a bunch of mamas who eat clean. I'm hoping for meal ideas and hopefully support.

I have done no carb and it just not a long term diet for me. I need some sort of carbs.
I can't eat sugar because it makes my skin go nutso. Wheat (especially on an empty stomach) makes me tired and does a number on my tummy.
So i am hoping eating clean will be the answer.

Re: Clean eating support?

We've been working on this. We actually did a 10 day juice cleanse- well kind of. It was modified so it was some juice with a lot of mostly raw fruits and veggies- no meat, grain carbs, eggs or dairy. It got us off sugar and significantly decreased the amount of eggs, cheese and meat we now eat. And decreased the amount of grain carbs- we love homemade bread in this house so that is saying a lot. I feel like I spend over half the day in the kitchen- in addition to regular kitchen time. But that has more to do with cutting the meat and carbs way back then the clean eating. I do a lot of chopping these days. We're are cautious to much back in and end up spiraling down again.

Re: Clean eating support?

I eat clean and would be happy to help with meal suggestions or ideas. When I plan my meals I usually just think protein + veggie + starch.

For example, a dinner might be baked chicken breast, sweet potato and roasted brussel sprouts. Or I might make a turkey or vegetarian chili and throw in lots of veggies and serve it over quinoa.

If wheat makes you sleepy but you like pasta, explore non-wheat options like quinoa, corn or brown rice noodles, or use half spaghetti squash + have pasta. If you want to invest in a spiraler, you can even make "pasta" from zucchini!

I just use my veggie peeler to make long strips of zucchini for pasta - works great and I dont need another thing cluttering my kitchen!

I used a mandolin at one point to make veggie noodles. That's another great way to do it!
