Eating Clean is Surprisingly Easy!

Well, I not only completed the weekend but have been inspired to continue the project I mentioned in my last post, supported by Takeyah Young of or @CoreConnection on Twitter.

It's amazing how easy it turned out to be.  Although, it wasn't the main goal, I actually lost 6 pounds!

Let me begin by patting myself on the back.  Takeyah provided a shopping list for the long weekend's meals and I actually had everything already, excluding the fresh produce, even quinoa and the Bragg's Amino Acid! (googleit)  As I wrote her, turns out I was on the right track, apparently.  I just wasn't disciplined enough to USE everything regularly. 

I'm used to making veggie-only meals for my husband, who could EASILY be a vegetarian except for the occasional pallomillo steak sandwich from his favorite Cuban restaurant.  Here I am the family carnivore who can't resist, well...MEAT.  For this weekend, though, I had no thoughts of it. Crazy, right?

I love to cook and love to chop veggies and fruits. I like my knives, okay?  I don't know what a doctor would make of that and prefer not to ask.

Having the support and comments of the others on Facebook was a definite plus.  When you know you are not alone in your struggles it makes a difference.  We were provided with instructions that were extremely easy to follow, additional information regarding cravings, praise for what I did and encouragement when needed.

All in all, I can see myself continuing this lifestyle.  Hey! Whaddya know? A new reboot! 

I WILL have that occasional steak sandwich but will pay attention to how it makes me feel afterwards.

Gee..who knew that I would actually start paying attention to my body's health at this point? 

Color me pleasantly surprised.


  1. Thank you for sharing your experience, Donelle. It was such a pleasure to have you in the group. I often share that people have some idea of what to do/eat. However, they just don't make it happen. I am SO glad to have had the opportunity to help you make it happen.



    1. Thank YOU for the opportunity! It was so less complicated than the many books I've invested in over the years! Wishing you much success!
