Clean Eating: Day 2 & WIAW

2 days down and 12 to go.  And I’m feeling good so far.  Hungry…but good.

But honestly, I do feel clean.  Very clean on the inside :)  I don’t feel weighed down or foggy.  I don’t feel full and lazy.  I feel energetic, healthy and great!  Just a tinge hungry…

Since I am documenting my eats for the next few weeks, I have decided to participate in a blog link up called What I Ate Wednesday or WIAW.  It’s a fun and exciting link party thrown by Jenn of Peas and Crayons where bloggers from all over the blogosphere share their delicious eats for a day.

This month’s theme is Summer Staples.  When I think of summer, I think of fruit (surprised?).  And drinking a nice cold smoothie filled with fresh and juicy fruit is a great way to stay cool in the summer heat.  Enter today’s breakfast…

Breakfast:

Green Berry Shake:  Blend 1 cup mixed greens, 1 cup blueberry, 1 cup milk (I mixed cows milk and almond milk), 1 tbsp flaxseeds, dash of cinnamon and 6 ice cubes.

1 egg, hardboiled

Snack #1:

2 organic lightly salted brown rice cakes, 1 tbsp unsalted peanut butter, 1 banana and 8 oz organic low-fat milk

Lunch:

2 sprouted corn tortillas each topped with 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1 1/2 oz turkey and a handful of mixed greens

1 cup organic black bean vegetable soup

Snack #2:

1/2 grapefruit and 1 tbsp flaxseeds

Dinner:

3 oz chicken, seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika

3 oz sweet potato, baked

2 cups spinach sautéed in 2 tsp olive oil with 1 clove garlic, minced

Biggest success of the day…

Hardboiled eggs.  I made perfect hardboiled eggs.  I have made hardboiled eggs before, but this hardboiled egg was the best I have ever tasted.  It has been a while since I hardboiled an egg so I googled a how to and follow this “recipe”.  It was perfect!  I highly suggest giving it a try…unless you have your own magical way to make hardboiled eggs, in which case…Please share :)

Since tomorrow is my weekly CSA link party, I won’t be posting my eats.  But I will make sure to post Wednesday’s meals on Thursdays post.  Double the pleasure, double the fun.  Can’t wait until Thursday?  If you want a sneak peek, follow me on Instagram (inherchucks).

    OMG!! I thought my mom and I were the only people who ate rice cakes with peanut butter and banana!! It’s one of our favorite snacks!

    Your grapefruit looks awesome, I’ve never thought of adding flax, but now I totally want to! Thanks for the sharing and suggestion!

  3. That looks like a really well balanced meal plan. 5-6 smaller meals are perfect, and once you get used to that you won’t be hungry any more. I also like that you are sticking to some go-tos every day. I find when I eat similarly every day it’s harder to fall off track.

  4. Yay! It’s great being able to cook a hard boiled egg without that yucky ring that makes it taste so ashy. :D I actually didn’t know how to PROPERLY boil an egg until several months ago. I’d been boiling them way too long for years! I stumbled across “http://its-fitting.com/2012/01/good-enough-to-eat-do-you-know-how-to-boil-an-egg.html”.

    I’m glad to hear about your hard boiled egg success! I must say, grapefruit and flaxseeds seems like an interestin combo, so I guess I’ll be testing that out!
