Special Thanksgiving Message from Clean Eating Weight Loss Meal Plan
Hi there. Welcome back!
It's Thanksgiving week, and you're celebrating with mouthwatering food: savory meats cooked to tender perfection, rich sauces dripping with oil, and mouthwatering desserts oozing with cream and chocolate...
It's feasting time, and you most-definitely deserve to enjoy yourself.
Please don't forget to eat clean!
You can eat healthy during Thanksgiving.
Indulge on the holiday, but eat sensibly for the rest of the time. Practice clean eating as much as you can, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. Also, if you need a break from family and guests, exercise. Not only does exercise offset extra calories, it takes away stress too.
Remember: Clean Eating is a lifestyle, so do as you normally would, even if there's a big meal planned ahead.
Good luck, and Happy Holidays!
Today's Clean Eating Weight Loss Meal Plan
Organic 8-Grain Cereal Topped with Trader Joe's Jumbo Seedless Black Raisins
This was a simple breakfast, but it was wholesome and filling. For natural sweetness, I originally wanted to add real maple syrup, but switched to Jumbo Seedless Raisins the last minute. The raisins tasted just as sweet while adding texture.
Have you tried Trader Joe's Jumbo Black Raisins? They are awesome. I love adding them to oatmeal, cereal and such, but love snacking on them too.
For cereal, I recommend Earth's Best Organic Whole Grain Cereal. It's made with grain oat flour, and contains an abundant amount of vitamins, iron and zinc. It doesn't have any additives or preservatives. Plus, it's quite tasty.
Mid Morning Snack
Sea's Gift Korean Seaweed Snack (Kim Nori)
Love roasted seaweed. Love Korean flavors.
This healthy, delicious packet offers flavor, crunch and few calories. It's (pretty much) the perfect clean eating snack.
Stir Fry Pork Slices and Tofu
I marinaded pork slices in corn starch, Tamari soy sauce, agave nectar, Vegetable oyster sauce, and Organic Rice Wine. Then I cooked it over stove top, using extra virgin olive oil, with organic tofu slices.
You can eat the dish alone, or top it over organic grain such as brown rice or quinoa. I personally prefer brown rice for Asian meals.
I like San-J Tamari Soy Sauce very much, and use it in most of my cooking. It's reformulated to be gluten-free, and is certified vegan and non-GMO. It has a rich, savory flavor that adds fantastic taste to meals.

Trader Joe's Cocao Dark Chocolate
Not much to say about this except that it was HEAVEN ON EARTH!
Garlic Spinach Chicken Stir Fry (get recipe here)
Plump chicken slices sauteed in garlic and extra virgin oil, with healthy, richly-green spinach--this meal was delicious, healthy and fanfastic!
I think you'll enjoy it. I know I did.
