28 Day Motiv8 Clean Eating Challenge!


28 Day Motiv8 Clean Eating Challenge!

Motiv8ers welcome to October's Motiv8 Food Challenge.  Will you take on this challenge with me?

Motiv8ers trying to figure out what to eat and which type of diet to go on can get overwhelming in a hurry. Well, it is about to get a lot simpler because the key to a clean diet that will help you stay strong, lean, and make you feel awesome comes basically down to these simple words: “less is more.”

As a busy person, and as a coach who is around busy people all day, I understand the difficulty in always having fresh food on hand. You can’t always run to the grocery store, and sometimes you want to just reach into the cupboard/freezer/fridge and have something almost make itself. I get it. That’s why Motiv8 is here to hopefully make creating a healthy clean diet much easier and I want us to work together to make this happen.

So the challenge is this.  For 28 days I want you to try for one or two meals each day for 28 days to only eat the foods on the shopping list below.  If you want to try the whole day for 28 days that would be even better but I know how hard a sudden change can be. You can make any recipe you like but the foods have to fit into the list laid out.  This might seem very challenging at first because many of us are so used to buying packaged goods but if you stick with it you will be so surprised on just how great you will start to feel.  Also every meal you make from the list below, take a pic and share it on your SETs facebook page.  Lets start helping each other stay Motiv8ed!

So what exactly is a clean diet? It may vary from person to person, but for Motiv8 it is one that contains unprocessed, whole (mostly plant) foods minus chemicals or other strange ingredients. Here are some tips for “going” clean, as well as the list of foods that Motiv8 recommends for the challenge to have on hand for quick meal prep. Use it as your guide next time you go shopping.

By the way, if something sounds unfamiliar to you, do a little research. I’m constantly learning about new, interesting, good-for-you foods. You, too, will be amazed at the options out there!

Clean Eating Tips

1. Start by saying goodbye to a few main "evils."

This includes all white stuff (including sugar), plus caffeine and alcohol.   Coffee and Tea is fine but any caffeine coming for sodas, sports drinks, or processed foods is a no go.  Processed sugar is a no go as well but fruit sugar is fine.  I know you are freaking out about the alcohol but try it out for 28 days.  You can do it!

2. Know that this will not break the bank!

Switching to 100 percent clean foods can be challenging and even costly at first.   But pay attention to the prices in the produce section.  The foods that are the cheapest are usually the healthiest foods to eat in bulk like potatoes, bananas, greens, beans, rice, etc.  Foods that are more expensive like some vegetables, meats, nuts, and pricy fruits have in moderation and eat in small amounts.  You will learn over time which foods to buy in bulk to make sure you are fitting your calorie needs each day and which foods to limit in order to not spend your whole pay check.  Last October when i did this challenged I saved over 300 dollars.  No joke.  I was amazed by just how much I was spending on packaged goods.

3. Remember: less IS more.

The fewer ingredients an item has, the “wholer” it is, as in less processed. Try to make or purchase items with five or six ingredients at the most.   The less ingredients the easier it is on digestion and the faster your body will process the meal and start allowing your body to enter into the healing process.

4. Plan to create meals with just a few items.

Try mixing and matching from the lists below.  For example, boil quinoa and sweet potatoes then toss in some black beans, cilantro and 1/2 sliced avocado. Then put in some cumin, cayenne pepper, and any other seasoning you find tasty. Fresh, clean, fast and delish! Once we are in the challenge post up the recipes you make and lets start helping each out eat healthy!

Happy Shopping!

Motiv8ers I want you to challenge yourself.  Can you do this challenge for 28 days?  Doing this challenge for every meal is ideal but if you want to take it slow and use this challenge to create some healthy habits for one or two meals then that is great too.  As you can see that dairy is not apart of this shopping list.  Motiv8 believes that dairy is not necessary for a complete whole natural diet and if eaten should only be used every once in a while.  

Motiv8ers this is going to be Motiv8’s biggest challenge to date and we know that if you adapt this challenge you will start to feel better, have more energy, and see the results you are looking for.  And remember don't take on this challenge alone.  If you make a meal based off the list take a pic of your meal and post it on your Motiv8's SET Facebook page.

Lets support each other and get crazy healthy in the process.

Stay EPIC and Don't Forget to Be AWESOME!

Coach Ty Out!

    1. Am Angela, thanks to Dr Osaze who cured me of HIV. I contacted HIV on my
      struggle to get a good education for my self. The symptoms were already
      showing in me, due to my incessant failing health. Until a friend saw
      Dr osaze's recommendation online, on how he has helped so many people,
      and we decided to reach him. And he applied his herbal medicine on me,
      and I bounce back to my previous heath status. In case you want to reach
      him for a similar issue you can call him at +2347089275769 or email
      him at drosaze39@gmail.com.
