I like to think most of my meals look like guilty pleasures but in fact are just creative clean eating! This keeps things fun and interesting, making it easier to stay on track with eating clean.
Important note: I eat every 2.5 hours and drink a gallon of water everyday.
First things first, my early morning cocktail! Juice from 1 whole lemon, a few dashes of cayenne pepper mixed with a cup of warm water. Lemon water with cayenne revs up my system and gets circulation flowing. Lemon juice is an antioxidant and aids the kidneys and liver by flushing out toxins, while cayenne pepper helps to boost my metabolism and gets the blood flowing.
