Giving up your favorite junk food isn’t easy. Who doesn’t love pizza, cake and ice cream? Sometimes we all need a little extra motivation to make the switch to eating clean. Here are three good reasons why you should give it a try.
You Feel Better and Have More Energy
Clean eating is all about eating real, unprocessed foods that are good for you and your body. It’s not easy, but the results will be almost immediate. You’ll start to feel better and have more energy throughout the day. You may even find you’re sleeping better and don’t have to rely on those 3 cups of coffee in the morning to get you out the door. I made the switch to clean eating about 18 months ago, and I discovered I COULDN’T drink more than one cup a day, or else I started to get really jumpy and jittery – unpleasantly so. Note: I have been a caffeine addict for a couple of decades.
Why does this happen? It’s because you’re finally giving your body the nutrients it needs to run at its best. Instead of going on a sugar or caffeine high and subsequent crash, you’re getting what you need to feel great and have as much energy as that Energizer Bunny.
You Look Better
Real food is much better at providing you with the vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients you need than anything in pill or cream form can. Don’t be surprised to see thicker, shinier hair and clearer, firmer skin.
Processed food is designed to trigger us to eat more than we should. Add to that the fact that it is not very nutrient dense, and it’s no surprise that most people on a “Western diet” are overweight.
Going back to a more natural way of eating will help you lose those extra pounds, which will not only make you look better, it’ll help you be a lot healthier, as well. That, of course, is much more important than looking good.
You’re Setting a Good Example for Your Loved Ones
Eating better and getting healthier doesn’t just impact you. You’ll also be setting an example for those around you. Your spouse and children will be much more likely to grab a healthy snack if you lead by example. Just think of the impact this could have on your family. Not only will you make sure you’re around and healthy for a long time, but you’ll also be influencing them to make healthy choices now and for years to come.
That’s some pretty good motivation to help get you started. Give clean eating a try, and see these benefits and more for yourself. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is and how great real food tastes.
It’s time to change things and take back control of what we eat and where that food comes from. It’s time to change our eating habits and give our taste buds a chance to recover to the point where they can experience the subtle flavor of a plain potato that isn’t deep fried and/or covered in salt. We need to get back to enjoying food that’s nutrient dense and gives us what we need to stay healthy and happy.
That’s what Clean Eating 101 is all about. Give it 30 days… 30 days of nothing but real food that’s good for you. Think of it as a way to reboot your system and finally kick the junk food habit to the curb.
Fifteen years ago, I went to a party a friend was hosting and bought a stoneware mini loaf pan. I still have that thing today, and it’s just as awesome.
When I got married almost 13 years ago, I let the friend of a friend do a Pampered Chef bridal shower for me. I still have all those things too!
I’ve been buying Pampered Chef products at various parties (mostly online now) ever since. I have never been disappointed by a single thing I’ve bought with Pampered Chef.
So, when I recently attended yet another online party and saw that there was a $19.80 join special, I took the plunge. I’ve been enjoying Pampered Chef myself for decades. Why not share that love with others?
I’m so excited to start my Pampered Chef journey. I would be thrilled if you would consider joining me. Pampered Chef has so many tools that can help you as you seek to eat cleaner. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on my Facebook page.
