Fitness Friday-Clean Eating

***Disclosure-Sample product was received to review.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

I was at a plateau that I could not break, stuck on the scale no matter what I tried.  I know it is suppose to not matter but it mattered to me.  I wasn't really seeing any difference on my clothes or inches falling of either.  I guess that is what happens when you don't let your body rest.  Someone suggested I start clean eating or Paleo.  I am not good at cooking or recipes.  But I do like to learn and once I get it, it becomes my new dish.  My sister in law, Christy (My Timeless Blessings) has been clean eating and has dropped a significant amount of weight.  So I said why not give it a try?  We went shopping for groceries from the list she made.  You need to be prepared.  Clean eating requires clean products.  Once we were done, we got in the kitchen and started making some clean recipes.  One of the recipes we had for a breakfast dish is for waffles.

Clean waffle recipe-
1 cup of sprouted spelt flour, 1 cup of almond meal flour, 1/4 cup of flax seed, 1 tb baking powder, 1 tb agave nectar
 One Degree Organic Foods-Organic Spelt Flour

Make bread, cookies, and some new friends with pure flour made from this ancient, heart healthy grain. Our organic spelt is a great plant-based protein source, and is grown without any animal fertilizers.

We paired 2 pieces of waffle (half) with grilled chicken to make our Chicken and Waffle dish.  It was yummy!  Remember I am allergic to yeast so I am not able to indulge on many things because of this.  Yes, sometimes I still have a bite of something I am not suppose to but with this organic product now I can enjoy making recipes and not have a reaction.

I am starting to enjoy the clean eating thing.  This entire week I ate clean dishes and lost another 2 lbs!!!
