Clean Eating Challenge Week | WIAW


I really enjoy participating in Clean Eating Challenges with friends on Facebook…this week isn’t much different! I prepped like crazy this past weekend and I SHOULD be set for the week… I am human, I do steer from the “straight and narrow”, but I am trying to eat clean to the best of my abilities this week! While this is a snip of a day, this template of eating will hopefully represent most of this week (minus the craziness of dinners…)!

[workout] 4 mile interval run + 3 easy miles

[breakfast] bulletproof coffee (9 oz coffee + 1 tbsp coconut oil)

[lunch] 4 oz chicken (cooked in the Instapot) + 1 cup roasted broccoli + 1 cup roasted sweet potatoes + 1/4 avocado

I was quite surprised how long my morning bulletproof coffee lasted in my tummy today! It is a mixed bag whether my morning joe satiety will last a couple hours or until lunch… Today, it lasted until almost noon! That is a record or something for me! Due not being hungry or bored enough to eat, I didn’t get a morning snack… But it might be made up later in the day!

[afternoon snack] homemade kombucha – While I haven’t been hungry today, I sure have been thirsty! I remembered that I put a bottle of kombucha in my mini-fridge at work and now is as good a time as ever to drink it! Oh so good! 

I just brewed my second batch last weekend…I am excited to see if I can get this batch to carbonate! You can check out my Weekend Happenings post to see a couple images from my process…maybe I’ll post about it overall sometime…? Would you be interested?

[dinner] fried eggs (2 whole + 2 whites) + fried onions + roasted sweet potato

While my dinners may change day to day, I have plenty of options at home! Tonight, I really wanted to have eggs…then I added the onion because we have a ton of them…and I really wanted some more sweet potatoes (so I made fries!). Paisley just watched me eat, whining at me the whole time… 


Just another day in the life! Check out the other WIAW posts with Jenn and her gang of foodies – Arman and Laura. I enjoy checking out the other link ups for meal inspiration! 

How do you like your vegetables? I LOVE mine roasted…the best!!
Have you tried kombucha? Like it? LOVE IT?? Ever want to make it at home? 


I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment and start a conversation!

  1. I really want to try making Kombucha at home! It can get expensive at the store, depending on the brand and where I buy it from. It looks like you had a pretty good day of eats though 🙂


    1. Yes! I know! A local kombucha brewer let me purchase a SCOOBY so I could start my own…theirs is $10 per 64oz with a used growler – so pretty cheap in the long run compared to the store…but it is still so much cheaper to make at home!
