What to do after an unclean eating episode…

Well, I eat clean MOST of the time.  But then there are the occasional times that I just need to eat those carbs to reset my system.

What do you do after a meal of unclean foods?What to do when you don't eat clean

Here are a few tips to help you get back on track.

1.  Don’t overly stress about it.  There is nothing you can do once the food has gone down the hatch.  You just have to move forward.

2.  Drink some peppermint tea to settle your tummy as you will feed a bit of indigestion set in.

3. Drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins you just ate.  Also, since you probably just ate a ton of carbs…it will flush out that extra water associated with them.  Carbs hold water, don’t forget!  Carbs will make you bloat don’t forget…

4.  Wake up the next day and eat a high protein breakfast.  It is important that you don’t skip this step as that will cause you to only go into “starvation mode.”

5.  Go light on the carbs, drink TONS of water and get some exercise in.

6.  Try some gentle yoga poses.  These yoga poses will aid in digestion and overall increase your comfort level.

So, don’t worry.  A meal or two will not wreck your clean eating work.  Just get right back on the “horse” to minimize the meals.

What do you do that helps with recovery from an “unclean eating” episode??

Another one hit chicken wonder from the land of the Crockpot!

Hey all,

What can I say…I hate to cook.  I mean really.  You wake up at 4:15 a.m., get your workout in, get ready for work and out the door by 7 a.m.  Work all day and then head home at 5 p.m.

Who really, really feels like cooking at that time?

Do you?

I know that I don’t.  But, yet, I do want to eat clean.  I have had some amazing weight loss results in the last few months and I feel so good.  The one thing that can jeoporize that feel good feeling is ruining my nutrition.  So that must stay constant.

And, a crockpot makes it all so easy.  Prep the ingredients ahead of time, stick them in the crockpot the morning of, press high (or low), and then walk away.

I am always on the prowl for new recipes.  Rarely do I ever make the same dish twice.  Thus, the title of this blog…”Another one hit chicken wonder from the land of the Crockpot!

I came across this great recipe…not sure who needs credit but someone does.  I can’t say that I was the brainchild behind this one.  Rarely am I ever!

But, I do know that I am going prep this baby over the weekend so on Monday morning, I just hit “play!”

Here it is:
