Clean eating diet

Firstly apologise for a months silence, had a few things going on that took up alot of my time, still a little on going but promise i’ll make time for the blog again.

So what have i been upto on the diet front?

I’ve left Weight Watchers behind. Too hard doing the weight of everything i used, with 3 kids it’s just not suitable for me. So what am i on now? Nothing as such. If i want crisps i will eat a pack, what i have changed is the way i ate, i have started to eat more cleanly. What does that mean? I will explain..

Clean eating; trying to cook everything from scratch, no jarred sauces, packet sauches. For example spaghetti bolognese, instead of using the dolmios sauce i now use passata, which is sieved, pureed tomatoes. If i use pasta/rice i try to use wholemeal and if possible organic.
I have cut carbs ALOT. I used to get stomach cramps and IBS (Irrital Bowel Syndrome) since cutting out carbs as much as possible i haven’t suffered with this. During the last school holidays i gave myself a break from it all and eat bread/pasta/potatoes as i used to. I noticed the cramps came back and  night i needed my IBS tablets as i was hunched on the floor in pain. It seems i can’t tolerate carbs much. So sometimes where i would have pasta like the spaghetti bolognese i am having salad with the bolognese poured on top. Yes it actually tastes nice! Also the left overs then goes into my omelette for dinner the next day, which is delicious! I rarely have chips/potatoes, i substitute them for again salad/roasted vegetables/peas/sweetcorn. It has been hard but now i am used to not buying potatoes and finding an alternative, i have carbs maybe twice a week.

I try and get everything fresh/frozen, my vegetables is usually frozen veg as i find it easier to fit in with my lifestyle as i don’t have time to be going to the supermarket every 2/3days for fresh vegetables. Sausages/ham/meat is from butchers as much as i can get to one, the other plus to this is the meat is nicer to eat and i am using local butchers for this so supporting the local businesses.

If i am having a lazy day or just don’t have the energy then i do cheat and use jarred/packet sauces for ease, but i have cut right back on this.

Exercise i am doing what i can, if i have a minute to myself i then do some crunches/planks, where i can.

The good thing is, you can have as much meat as you want, portion size doesn’t have to be shrunk straight away and can be gradual as what you are eating is clean and healthy. What i have found difficult if no sauces, only balsamic vinegar. For most meals i can do this, but Sunday Dinner just isn’t the same without some gravy! So i haven’t completely took out all the good things, that are bad for you.

So that is the diet i now follow, which i don’t necessarily class as a diet more a change in the way i now eat. Before this i thought it was ok to eat rice, potatoes and some meat, but now i see how wrong that is, having rice and potatoes together. It took sometime to get my head around things but now i notice more of food.
