Slow and Steady Road to Eating Clean

In college eating clean is something students struggle the most with. With hectic schedules and crazy bills having the time and money to eat healthy can be a huge struggle. For me I also lacked motivation and was lazy.

This past semester going along with graduating and having to be a “full on grown-up” I decided if I was going to learn how to cook now is as good as a time as ever. My first move was to start by cooking foods that I liked. I soon learned that continuously adding cheese to various foods was not being good to my body and realized I need to learn to make healthier choices as well on this track towards being a grown-up.

I have never been a big vegetable person and although I know they are good for me from childhood till now have always been very picky about eating them. Although I felt a certain way about them I realized in order to eat healthy they needed to be included and I had to just find a way to prepare them in a way which was appetizing to me and find the vegetables that I found the most adaptable.

After finding the veggies that I liked the most I decided to find recipes that I could meal prep  and make enough of for the whole week so when my schedule gets more hectic it is not something I have to worry about. So far I have around 3-4 recipes that I will alternate with to make for myself. I find my favorite food and learn how to make a healthy twist, for example I love pasta. So, I made a recipe with whole wheat noodles, and veggies mixed with turkey meatballs which were not as fatty and made enough to last me a whole week. Having foods that I enjoy is in my opinion one of the most important things about eating clean as one of my biggest weaknesses in the past is missing the food that I like eating when swapping it with healthy foods. Now I am able to do both! Its definitely a long journey ahead of me but at this rate I have high hopes for the future to continue eating healthy and living healthy.
