I did it! I finished :) I succeeded in 28 days of clean eating. I feel fantastic and am super glad that I decided to embark on this journey. I would be lying if I said I didn’t’ want a large piece of dark chocolate right about now, but I have a pantry full of goodies that will help me create a clean eating dessert. My goal is to whip something up tomorrow. Stay tuned for a recipe.
Just because my meal plan is finished, doesn’t mean my clean eating journey is over. I have learned so much these last 4 weeks I plan on carrying over the recipes, tips and tricks into “real life”. But first, I am going to combine all of the leftover meal ingredients and create some of my own combos this week. No wasting around here :)
But before I go raiding my fridge, here is a final look at today’s delicious eats…
3/4 cup Greek yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp unsalted peanut butter topped with 1/4 cup Muesli, 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds and 5 grapes, halved
1 bottle coconut water
1 cup sliced pineapple
7 walnut halves
Banh-Mi Style Sandwich: Asian Slaw mixed with 1/4 cup Greek yogurt and juice 1/2 lime. Top 1 Ezekiel Burger Bun with slaw and 1/2 cucumber thinly sliced and 3 oz cooked ground turkey.
2 cup mixed sliced strawberries and blueberries
10 raw, unsalted almonds
Chicken and Sweet Potato Toss: 3 oz chicken, cooked, 1 sweet potato, peeled, baked and chopped, 1 cup broccoli, chopped and steamed, 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced, and 1 sprig of thyme sautéed with olive oil.
Highlights: There is nothing more delicious than a bowl of fresh berries. Tastes so good it almost seems naughty. Add a little protein with a handful of nuts and it’s a perfect way to curb your hunger in the afternoon. Yum!
Lowlights: No lowlights today. Went out with a bang!
Thank you to everyone who supported me through this journey. I appreciate your encouragement. It always feels good to have people in your corner :) This will be the last of my clean eating posts. However, I have had so much fun participating in Jenn’s WIAW, I am going to continue to post my eats on a weekly basis.
Hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day!
