Clean Eating Challenge: Day 40!!

Saturday, June 30
Day 40

 

 

 

Breakfast – Green Smoothie #29 – Strawberry Banana – today was the last day of the Green Smoothie Challenge – I had 29 smoothies in 30 days…not bad! I will definitely be continuing with the Green Smoothie – I totally loved them, and to believe 31 days ago, I had NEVER had one…Thanks Amanda for organizing this challenge and introducing me to the Green Smoothie!

Lunch – McDonald’s Breakfast Burrito Combo – no drink – on our drive north to visit my parent’s for the weekend, we stopped at McDonald’s to grab lunch – totally not clean:( and was kinda surprised at just how unhealthy a breakfast burrito could be…totally shocked to find out one sausage mcmuffin with egg has less calories and fat than two breakfast burritos. As you can see, my meal was a whopping 760 calories and 43 grams of fat…can you say d.i.s.g.u.s.t.i.n.g!

Well, today was a bit of of a Clean Eating roller coaster! It started out pretty good, but quickly went down hill, only to get back on track for dinner, and then totally off track for dessert.

I’m feeling like I probably should have stopped this challenge after day 30…I seem to have really been struggling since then! Oh well, 7 days to go…I can do it!

Anyways, here’s what I ate today…

Breakfast – Refrigerator Oats I got his recipe from my sister. If you are interested in a delicious, no hassle, healthy breakfast, click here for the recipe. It definitely tastes a lot better than it looks!

20120624-202332.jpg

Dinner – Corn on the Cob, Grilled Chicken and a Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Habanero Cheddar Cheese. I actually forgot to take a picture of my plate…these were the leftovers. Oops!
