Clean Eating Cleanse Wrap Up: Eating Clean On The Go

All right!  The 10 day Clean Eating Cleanse ended yesterday, and for the last four days of it, I was on the road.  No kitchen and no farmer’s market-stuffed fridge to grab meals from.  How in the heck did I do it?  

Well, I made sure I stayed plenty hydrated.

I also went to fresh-friendly places, like Mongolian BBQ!  I picked out all fresh veggies like snap peas and broccoli and sprouts, and had the grill masters whip up a delicious stir-fry of vegetables!

I also made sure to get my work out in!  Running and lifting with old friends was the perfect way to switch up my routine!  A couple runs at the park, and of course a stop by Planet Fitness to get my Lunk on!

I spent quite a lot of time in the car this weekend as well, and my favorite healthy “fast food” is Chipotle!  I wasn’t mad about it!  Black beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes, salsa, and a big hunk of guacamole! yummmmmmmm.

I can’t tell you how refreshed I feel after 10 days of unprocessed, homemade meals.  Yes, it was a bit more time-consuming, but I’d do it again in a heatbeat!  Our bodies need to be nourished, and the closer we can get to natural, fresh, REAL ingredients, the better.  As I found out this weekend, those foods can even be found on the go.  I even was able to get fresh juice at a Jamba Juice at the mall!  I can’t wait to incorporate these delicious whole-food recipes into my regular meal plans, and continue experimenting with more!

Stir-Fried Juice

You know how sometimes you open your fridge and there’s nothing to eat?  Same thing happens with juicing, and it makes me so very unhappy!  I have all these recipes, but not all the ingredients for even one of them!  This was the situation I found myself in after my daily workout this afternoon.  The juicer was ready to go, but I had nothing to put through it.  What to do?  

My mom used to make stir fry growing up when there was nothing to eat in the house.  She pretty much just emptied the fridge of whatever was left and threw it all together in the frying pan.  I don’t remember those meals being too bad, so today I tried the concept for myself.  I made a “stir-fried” juice!

Here’s what I could russel up from the fridge:

Doesn’t look all that appetizing together now, does it?  I would never throw this group into a frying pan on the stove, but in a juicer this strange combo works magic.  

  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 2 nectarines
  • 1/2 lemon
  • hunk o’ ginger
  • broccoli stalk
  • dinosaur kale (4-5 leaves)

Hellooooo deliciousness!  There was about 1/2 cup of juice that didn’t fit into this glass, but look at all that nutrition!  All those fruits and veggies in one tasty glass.  Not bad for a seemingly empty fridge!
