Welcome to Day 2!
One of the things that was most challenging for me when I began my own fitness and wellness journey was learning to say NO!
It’s my goal to help everyone learn how to say “No Thanks” and move on.
I know it’s hard, and at first you may feel bad, but understand the reason BEHIND why we can’t eat foods like that.
We need to treat our bodies like a temple.
Our lives DEPEND on our fitness/health!
Not to mention… This isn’t only about us.
It’s about the people in our lives that we love and care about.
Do it for them.
No more… I’ll start tomorrow!
The time is now, right now.
One thing I have realized is when we embrace this new path in life it’s very important to be clear about our intentions.
Gawww… I was so guilty of this for years.
I knew right from wrong, BUT I could never seem to get my… You know what straight!
So… Be very clear about what you want and do not self-sabotage!
Trust me, it gets easier with time.
So here is your clean eating tip for today:
Eat less CRAP:
C – carbonated drinks
R – refined sugar
A – artificial sweeteners or colors
P – processed foods
Eat more FOOD:
F – fruits and veggies
O – organic lean proteins
O – omega-3 fatty acids
D – drink water
What CRAP have you decided to stop eating (or cut back on) since beginning this group?
Did you say “NO” to something today?
If so, what was it?
How did it make you feel?

Chia pudding is all the rage these days and there’s a good reason why.
Not only is chia pudding one of the most photogenic, effortless healthy breakfasts in existence, this Raspberry Chia Pudding also doubles as a filling snack or a sweet dessert.
To make it, mix chia seeds together with almond milk, honey, and fresh berries, then refrigerate and wait.
Seriously, it’s that simple.
But, if you really want to get the most of the raspberry flavor… mash those berries before adding them to the mixture.
As the chia seeds rest, they’ll absorb up to 12 times their weight in moisture and plump up a texture that resembles pudding.
Pudding packed with five grams of protein, 13 grams of fiber, and plenty of antioxidants!
