eating clean

Well, yikes this has been a week. And it's not even over yet! Agh!
I'm too tired to type. Too tired to think straight. 
So, this not a complete blog about our new diet/exercise regime but it's a partial. 

We're eating clean, small portions all day. Like five-seven times a day, woosh - that's a lot of cooking & preparing but it's nice to know we're eating healthily & I love having all my food ready at the beginning of the day. 

Here are some things I'm loving eating, all 300 calories or under. 
  • English Muffin Chicken Pizza. Two halves of a multigrain english muffin with a little tomato sauce, 1/4 cup of mozzarella, and 2 oz. of chicken. Throw some spices on that mug & 10 minutes in the oven and you're in healthy eating heaven. 
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, 2 tblspoons of nonfat plain yogurt, a squirt of agave nectar and 1 tblspoon of kashi cereal. Crunchy, refreshing, & sort of sweet. 
  • Turkey Bacon BLT. Two slices of wheat bread, tiny tiny bit of organic ranch, 3 slices of turkey bacon, two pieces of lettuce, and a big whooping slice of tomato. 
  • What Nick and I call 'proatmeal'. I think the eating plan we're doing called it that because you're supposed to put protein powder in it, but we don't have any yet so we're not doing that:). Proatmeal, however is fun to say & eat. 2/3 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 of blueberries, 2 tblspoons of walnuts, tblspoon of flaxseed & again - some agave for sweetness. I like it. 
Ok, that's about all the words my mind can handle right now. 
Any other healthy, under 300 calorie meals you guys want to suggest?

Hey Jessi! I got a fab book called Hungry Girl 200 under 200, it's 200 recipes under 200 calories - divided into appetizers, snacks, dinners, desserts, breakfast etc. It's great, they also have a website hungry-girl.com with blogs that have recipes, what to eat when you eat out and stuff- it's a great resource. I have such a sugar addiction and I'm trying to cut it out...so I love a lot of the suggestions I've found through hungry girl. Hope it helps! Sounds like you guys are going a wonderful job :) Take care

I'm totally struggling with dieting over here! But the eating clean thing sounds like I could make it work. Especially cause it seems like it uses real food and not just low fat stuff I can't buy. Is there a website where I can get more information?
