clean eating june

This is completely accurate.

For the rest of the month of June I am going to try my hardest to eat clean 80% of the time. I cannot commit to 100% because there’s a couple weekends I’ll be traveling and will have to rely on healthy, yet processed snacks to get me through the weekend.

So Monday-Friday I will be choosing to eat clean and be a little more lenient on the weekends.

What does this mean I’ll be eating?

  1. Focus on foods that give you the biggest bang for your buck: fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, legumes, whole grains, and essential fatty acids (EFAs).
  2. Lean protein sources: skinless chicken breast, salmon, tilapia, cod, mahi mahi, tuna, shrimp, turkey breast, elk, bison, grass-fed beef, egg whites + eggs, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, kefir, organic milk, nondairy milk, tofu, tempeh, protein powder
  3. Whole grain/Strachy Carbs: oats (groats, steel cut and rolled/old fashioned), buckwheat, quinoa, teff, farro, whole grain barley, whole grain cream of wheat, millet, sweet potatoes, potatoes, corn
  4. EFAs: salmon, extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil, coconut oil and butter, flaxseeds, chia seeds, almonds, cashews, walnuts, grass-fed beef, nut and seed butter
