Can you believe it? Summer is almost over! Time sure flies! Fall is just around the corner. Do you know what that means? Fall Detox time!!! Since July, it has been so hot here…100-113 degrees. We had a couple wild fires near us…the biggest one being the Holy Fire, on the border of Orange and Riverside counties, that I didn’t feel like cooking anything. So, we ate out a lot. So, now that it is finally cooler, it is time to get back on track.

Why Clean Eating
When I first changed my lifestyle and began eating clean foods, those first few days of eating clean were like a total revolution to me! I couldn’t believe how good the food tasted, how satisfying it was, and how much better I started feeling, almost immediately. Within just a few weeks, I could already notice the difference in that bathroom mirror. My skin was looking less saggy, my eyes were brighter – oh, and that long, slow, shuffle, feeling worn out after a full night’s sleep? Nope, I was walking proud and feeling well rested.
So many people think eating clean is just a weight-loss program, but they don’t realize it’s so very much more than that. It’s a total lifestyle shift that not only helps you get your weight under control, but also does amazing things for your health.
- Your immune system gets stronger.
- Your gut starts functioning properly.
- You start sleeping better and getting more efficient rest.
- Your energy levels remain constant throughout the day.
- Your hair, nails, skin, eyes all look and feel healthier.
I couldn’t believe how awesome I felt. Not too mention, my reflux was gone. It was such a total revolution for me that I couldn’t keep it to myself. I wanted to sing it from the rooftops and shout it to everyone I could find. But since that might get me locked up, I figured I’d do it the sane way, and create a three-week program that helps people discover, learn about and implement the clean eating lifestyle for themselves. And you know, it’s been working. I’ve helped my friends and family discover a whole new way to live, and they’re loving it!
My 21-Day Clean Eating/Reset Your Life Program starts in 16 days, Monday September 10 and I’d love for you to join me on an exciting, delicious and life-changing journey to discovering your health. Oh, and the best part? This is the first program of its kind that works for omnivores as well as vegans!
I’m so excited to share the benefits of clean eating with you, that I want you to give this incredible recipe a try – it’s delicious, nourishing and 100% healthy!

Very informative post. I try to eat clean 95% of the time and I can see a dramatic change, I have more energy to do the things that bring me joke. My health has also improved.
You’re absolutely right about clean eating and I’d recommend taking it a step further and getting rid of the fish. In my case I’m a vegetarian going on vegan. Of course not everyone goes vegan but as a vegetarian, my body feels cleaner, I feel less heavy and I got extremely creative with food 🙂
Hi Kate! I agree. When I first began eliminating foods from my diet, I tried going vegan. Since my family has a history of hemochromatosis, I have to watch my iron intake i.e. limiting my intake of beans, lentils, etc.
Great post. Also try to eat clean. Makes me feel so much more alive.
