Clean Eating Challenge: Day 12


Saturday, June 2
Day 12






Breakfast – Green Smoothie #2. This recipe was one listed in Oatmeal in my Bowl’s 30 Delicious Green Smoothies list. Created by Ashley at (never home) maker, it contains

1 frozen banana – which I nearly froze my fingers off trying to peel!
2 large handfuls of spinach
2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

It looked disgusting, but tasted pretty good. Maybe a little chocolatey for my taste – did I really just say that? What is the Clean Eating Challenge doing to me??


Morning Snack – just a Timmy’s Peppermint Tea. We were outside this morning watching Daddy rig up a Land Rover for a commercial shoot, and I needed a little something to warm me up afterward.


Lunch – leftover Eat Clean BBQ Chicken Deep-Dish Pizza


Afternoon Snack – one Eat Clean Chocolate Walnut Brownie and one piece of Eat Clean Caramel Pudding Cake… couldn’t resist, both still warm from the oven!


Dinner – Eat Clean Spicy Sausage Hash Brown Pie from Clean Eating Classic Comfort Foods 2012. This is another first for me, time-wise this one was ok, taste-wise…yummo! I love the spicy sausage!


Evening Snack – Kashi Roaster Almond Crunch Bar 1 package


Water Consumption:
6 glasses – need to drink more!

7.5 hours with only a slight interruption to feed Tanner. I am definitely falling back to sleep a lot quicker after nighttime feelings. Yay!

  1. Awesome blog 🙂 I’ve been reading about clean eating, but have been trying to find someone who has actually incorporated it into their daily lives. Can’t wait to try some of the recipes.

      Thanks! Glad you are finding some useful info! I’m surprised sometimes a how easy it is to eat clean…just need to be organized and make time to cook it! Planning is key! I look forward to hearing what you think of the recipes you try and reading about your quest to eat clean. Have a great day!

  2. Haha. I found that the longer I ate “cleaner,” the less chocolate I wanted in my smoothie too. Strange, huh? A tip on the bananas (which my sister just shared with me). Peel before freezing and freeze in a container. Makes the frostbite thing less likely. 🙂
