Clean Kitchen 101: Start Small
Read the labels and start replacing foods that fuel a healthier you. Start by cutting back on sugar, alcohol, desserts, chips and replace it with things like natural fruits, herbal teas, kombucha and real food that grew on the earth. Try the Salted Almond Protein Squares.
HOLD UP… take a good look at your kitchen, the fridge, what’s hiding in your cupboards, the packed pantry – and replace things that might tempt you with better and more fuelling foods! This is a process and we can do it together. Jump into my Free Facebook Group for Support and let me know how you are doing using #Fit4Females,
Ingredients be Warned
To name a few, artificial sweeteners, OSE additives (glucose, fructose), MSG: mono sodium glutamate, added salt or sugar to canned and pre-packaged items, trans fat, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sodium Nitrates and Sodium Nitrites. Go for ingredients you recognize the majority of the time.
Protein Powders can be an issue: Take a look at this Ingredient list for The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
Soy (AVOID!): soy protein isolate is added to a TON of vegan fitness products, especially protein bars (read the labels!). Beyond being one of the most common GMO foods, soy is highly allergenic and can have negative effects on thyroid health with steady use. For these reasons and more, I HIGHLY recommend avoiding this ingredient at all costs.

6 Clean Kitchen Challenge Tips
- Have a homemade juice, soup or salad daily to curb hunger
- Choose oil and vinegar dressed salad as opposed to caesar or creamy dressings. Experiment with different dressings
- Choose fish, turkey and chicken over hamburgers and heavy red meats
- Reduce the amount of unhealthy snack options in your house. Fuel up with healthy options like Salted Almond Protein Squares, *which can be frozen
- Have a cheat meal. Splurge on something and decide ahead of time
- Find a new veggie, fruit or food to bring into your house that you haven’t tried. I love endive!
Drink 1 glass of water for every alcoholic beverage you consume. Replace alcohol with kombucha or Perrier / San Pellegrino in a fancy wine glass
