A week of…Clean and Lean

A week of, Clean and Lean, James Duigan, Clean Eating, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacksI know, I know, you want to lick the screen right now.  Please refrain, it’s won’t work and when was the last time you cleaned that screen?

Ok, yeah, I’ll be your best friend 🙂 Cook for you everyday? Hmm, that sounds more like a personal chef than a best friend…

Yep, I’ve been eating WELL using my new Clean and Lean books as a guide – oh yeah, it’s good!

I’ve followed recipes, adapted recipes, and used James’s guidelines to cut the C.R.A.P (that’s caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol, processed foods), and here are some of my favourites from the week 🙂
