2014 Clean Eating Challenge

Saturday, December 28, 2013

So it's almost 2014- when did that happen?? Man what a year, huh? I don't really do resolutions per say, but every year I make a to-do list and set one challenge (which is actually a goal but I'm really competitive and more likely to do it if it is called something that involves winning). My to-do list is extremely Type-A and not very interesting or relevant, so for now let's discuss my challenge. Or goal. Or whatever we want to call it. Choal? Goallenge? Anyway my goal/challenge for 2014 is an entire year of 80/20 Clean Eating- aka 80% of the food I consume in 2014 will be completely clean. The other 20%, for me, is cheat days but that 20% means something different for different people.

So anyway, who's with me? We doing this or what? Let's CLEAN UP 2014! Here are some resources I have pulled together:

    2. Ooh that's tough, I only really have to worry about myself. wholefoodsnewbody.blogspot.com blogs about clean eating with her family, maybe that could be helpful? Or at least some good family friendly recipes to try!
