Healthier Mexican Style Stuffed Mushrooms

Day # 4 of my Cleaner Healthier Eating and it's still going really well!  I'm feeling so much better and I can't even hardly believe it.  Well, yes I can believe it.  I've cut out all the unhealthy stuff from my diet and I've really been committed to eating cleaner healthier foods.  What does that mean exactly?  I'll tell you what it means to me....  I want to have more energy.  I want to be able to stay awake and not nap.  I want my clothes to fit better! It means that I've cut out all processed foods as much as I can.  I'm eating more fruits, vegetables, cheeses, healthy dairy, meats & vegetarian products.  I'm trying to eat as much organic as I can and just trying to be overall healthier in my food choices.

No Bake PB & Banana Oat Energy Bars

I've made through day's 1, 2 & 3 of my Cleaner Healthier Eating... Yay!  Overall it has gone really good with the exception that we don't have a huge variety of clean healthy things to eat in the house, and I don't know about you but we don't have a lot of money to just run to the store and stock up right now.  So, I've been trying to be as creative as I can with what we have. 

This afternoon I started getting stressed out, really bad.  We took the baby on a walk this morning and he just cried and cried.  Then we can home and he cried some more because he didn't want to nap.  Then he finally napped and woke up and cried.  Then he didn't get his way and cried again... you get my drift.  I was stressed and then it hit me... I needed something sweet.  Yes, I'm totally an emotional eater (it's pretty bad) and all I could think about was a McDonalds Ice Cream, the pop tarts in the kitchen and the bag of Hershey's chocolate chips that I could go to the store and buy.  Yep. I almost broke down.  I was so close.

Skip the potatoes... Zucchini Breakfast Scramble!

I'm only on day 2 of my Cleaner Healthier Eating and already I feel so much better!  I just can't believe how much the food I've been eating has been affecting my body.  When I woke up this morning I knew I wanted to make day #2 successful so I decided to start it off with a good breakfast.  It's amazing how good food can taste when you keep it simple and cut out the crap!
