Eating clean does not have to be difficult OR overwhelming.
Pick a protein: chicken, fish, lean pork, lean beef, beans, and tofu
Pick a veggie: the list is wayyyy too long here, but they can be steamed, sauted, nuked, poached, raw….etc.
Pick a good carb: quinoa, brown rice, sweet potato, whole grain pasta, steel cut oats, etc.
Pick a fruit: again the list is astronomical and they can be prepared in a variety of ways or raw.
Pick a good fat: olive oil, canola oil, avocado, nuts, low-fat dairy, etc.
Use herbs, seasonings, & good fats to add taste, texture, and variety to your dishes. I particularly love onions, peppers, chiles, celery, lemon, lime, garlic, and fresh cilantro, basil, and rosemary in a variety of dishes and concoctions. Experiment with the freshest ingredients with the least amount of processing.
Serve your meals the traditional way: each has a spot on the place all its own; in a mishmash: piled upon and mixed together; or some combination of the two.
