7/9/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 10. July 2012 09:20

Hi.  Everyone can achieve a higher energy level by integrating 'clean eating' and exercise into their life plan.  When making choices about nutrition, it's really important when you are choosing foods for 'clean eating' to pick different colored fruits and vegetables.  I mean this literally.  Don't eat veggies that only green, fruits that are mostly red...you get the picture.  If you have variety in the colors of these foods, and pick from these foods that are 'in season', you will be getting foods with the most flavor. Think about how much more delicious summer tomatoes are, or fall apples.  Anymore,  you can get most any fruit/vegetable during its 'off season'.  But, by getting the most flavor and nutrition per bite, it helps you achieve what is important to having an eating plan that you enjoy and can stick with. 

I prefer to budget my money for organic veggies such as broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, sweet peppers ( fruits and veggies with thin/no skin).  They have really improved the longevity of these products, and because I eat them so frequently, I don't want to put a lot of  chemicals into my system.
