Eating Clean15 in 2020
Eating Clean15 in 2020

New year, same old pressure to pick a resolution and stick to it. Easier said than done, right? This year, do something you’ll actually enjoy doing. Something sustainable, achievable, and — may we add — delicious.

Your New Year’s resolution shouldn’t feel like an empty gesture driven by guilt or shame — it’s an opportunity to set yourself up for a happier, healthier year every single day. You might cook at home a little more, try out new ingredients, or eat more vegetables. It’s up to you. This is your year.
 

Healthy Meals for a Happy New Year

 
If eating healthier is on your New Year’s resolution list this year, we’d like to introduce you to our low-carb, high-protein menu: Clean15. Although low-carb diets details vary, they tend to limit foods rich in carbs (primarily simple carbs) and embrace protein-rich and healthy fat foods.

As Goodfood’s Nutritionist Olivia Menzies, R.D. advises, it’s best to take any dietary trend with a grain of salt and focus on eating a healthy, well-rounded diet. “Instead of thinking ‘low-carb’, we should be lowering our intake of simple sugars and eating more vegetables every day.” And that’s exactly what Clean15 promotes.

Olivia explains, “Clean15 is great for anyone looking to increase their veggie intake and reduce simple sugars like white rice, white bread, and white pasta. The plan replaces traditional carbs with salads and vegetables, vegetable “rice” or “noodles”, or unrefined grains like quinoa. The extra protein in the meals helps you feel fuller longer so you can achieve your personal goals and an overall healthy lifestyle.”

If you’re craving a little healthy comfort food one week, it’s easy to switch things up in just a few clicks on your selection page. All of our plans are built with our members’ health and happiness in mind.
