It is true. You are what you eat. If you eat processed foods, your body has no idea what to do with it because it isn’t food! Bit by bit (or rather bite by bite) you can change this. Start with 3 things that you will change for three days.
Here are a few ideas:
1. I will not add any sugar to any of my food or eat food that has sugar in it for three days (you can have 2-3 servings of fresh fruit).
2. I will not eat any potato chips or crackers of any sort for three days.
3. I will not drink any form of soda, sports drink, etc. for three days.
Then, evaluate how you feel. If you like how you feel, stick to it. With practice, you will end up loving how you feel so much, that you will not WANT those things again. Seriously, they will seem disgusting to you because you will remember how horrible they made you feel. On this page, I will provide ideas to help you get into the groove of y.o.u. (your own utopia)!
Just try it to make changes. At first, it will be hard but I promise you will be ok! What’s great is that you will be more than OK. You will feel great and love it.

SAMPLE EATING PLAN:
Smoothie: Blend ½ cup frozen blueberries, ½ banana, 1-2 tablespoons almond butter or coconut oil (or a little of both), handful of spinach and kale, your favorite vanilla protein- preferably as clean as possible meaning no added sugar or ingredients that you do not understand and forget the yogurt. You may use some ½ cup of almond milk. Ice is optional. Top with chia seeds and a few nuts! enJOY!
Tip: Make a little extra (about 3-4 ounces) for your snack later if you think you will need one. Also, perfect pre-workout.
Wrap filled with hummus, quinoa, bell pepper, raw carrots and cucumber drizzled with a ginger tahini and carrot dressing served with a fresh leafy green salad
Optional: add chicken
Tip: Regarding the wrap: go to the frozen food section (health food area may be your best bet) and look for gluten free, non-gmo and/or sprouted wraps. Look for these brands: Ezekiel and Engine 22 both make great options and can usually be found at Kroger, Whole Foods and natural food stores among others.
4-6 ounces Grilled Salmon or Chicken served on a bed of fresh greens of choice topped with avocado, mango and chopped grape tomatoes and a side of lightly steamed asparagus drizzled with lemon juice and topped with cashews or sliced almonds.
