By popular demand, I finally created a meal plan based on my daily eating habits. It’s specifically formed to incorporate all nutrients from the food pyramid, and is a guide to eating clean, lean, and green without cutting out any specific food group. A lot of moms ask how I stay in shape and “diet” as a nursing mother. Let me start by saying I’m not on a “diet;” just living a healthy lifestyle.
My #1 biggest success tip is cut out alcohol.
Being a breastfeeding mom, my max is always one glass of champs [my drink of choice], and I only have that on special occasions or once and a while when I want to celebrate something; hitting a goal, a life event, or just a reward after a long day of mama hood. I’ve followed TIU’s 7DSD, 5DSD, Whole 30, Advocare’s 10-day calendar, 24-day challenge, Weight Watchers, sporting nutrition guidelines, and all sorts of other “diets” that incorporate one common goal; eating fresh fruits + veggies and eating clean, lean, and green. The focus on my calendar is to eat! If you’re hungry, eat! Just eat something healthy and not processed! If you’re looking for meal ideas, or somewhere to start, consider joining in our Ten Day Trim, which can be found here.

CHEERS TO YOU AND CHEERS TO A WONDERFUL WEEK AHEAD!
