January/February 2014 Issue
A few months back, I got married. Not unlike most brides, I was in complete and utter overdrive leading up to the big day, working a couple of different jobs, freelancing, squeezing in workouts and spending more time in malls than I’d ever like to again. It was a complete self-inflicted chaos, and not surprisingly, I got quite sick just days before my destination wedding. The pendulum then swung in the other direction and I began to really enjoy nights on the couch and tons of sleep, and in crept the habit of eating out (and ordering in). Luckily, one morning leading up to the holidays I bounced out of bed with a refreshing desire to cook a giant batch of clean eats. I was ready to get back to my old busy-bee self, and remembered what truly energizes me: Preparing clean meals makes me feel productive. Productivity makes me feel purposeful and fulfilled. Eating nutritious, balanced, whole foods elevates mood and immunity, keeps the noggin’ alert and the body energized so I can keep on producing! From our kitchen to yours, the entire Clean Eating team wishes you an inspired and motivated 2014 bursting with energy and good health!
