Eat Clean With Faith Family Fashion

Happy Sunday!!!!
As I'm starting week 12 of Clean Eating and slowly approaching the 30lb weightlost mark I thought it would be great to share with you all how I got started . First things first you have to find a plan that works for you ... Next do your research !!!!! Google, by books , ask friends etc...  Now that you have done your research lets get started . If you're like me and have chosen Clean Eating as your new plan great !!! Here are a few tips to help you along the way .
Go into to the plan thinking positive ... Focus on the foods you can eat rather than focusing on the ones you'll be giving up . Now it's time to shop . You will only need to shop the perimeter of the grocery store (outside the aisle) meaning fresh poultry & fresh produce ONLY!!!! eggs (NO Cheese) the only thing you need to shop the aisle for is Mrs Dash seasoning, Olive Oil ,Rice and Peanut butter (Peanut butter & Co white chocolate wondeful is yummy and Natural)
Now it's time to prep your meals for the week (Lunch ) choose a lean protein (4/oz No red Meat) choose a veggie choose a grain (1/2 Sweet pot, 1/2Bake pot, 1/2 cup Brown rice , 1/2 cup Quiona) portion control is key just because it's healthy doesn't mean to over indulge . Breakfast (oatmeal-whole grain waffles, toast ,eggs fruit etc..) and Dinner (No grains Only protein and veggies) is usually prepared fresh . Dessert (Strawberries, Grapefruit are my Favs)
A One Day  Sample Menu
2 slices of whole wheat cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter and 4 grapefruit slices
2 1/2 hrs later
boiled egg 1/2 banana
2 1/2hrs later
Chicken Breast, 1/2 sweet pot. and green beans
2 1/2hrs later
pear slices with peanut butter and a handful of almonds
Lean Turkey patty, asparagus , broccoli medley
1 cup of berries or grapefruit slices  
This is just a Sample eat what you love !!!!! change up your meals weekly so you don't get bored . And remember when you feel like quitting , remember why you started :)
Good luck on your journey !! Thank you all for the love and support on Faith Family Fashion . For meal ideas hashtag #Eatwithfaithfamilyfashion on Instagram

Happy Friday!!!!!
As of late I've been a bit obsessed with Kim Kardashians style - from her ripped jeans and t-shirts to her elegant yet effortless dresses and pencil skirts  her new look screams "Simplicity". Todays look was definitely inspired by the star .

The Forgotten Trench

trench coat (Ny&Co) frames (Jessica Simpson) booties (Ebay)

Happy Monday!!!
How could I forget this trench !!!??? Well there's a reason, when I purchased it 2yrs ago this fab coat wouldn't button  - it was on sale so I bought it anyway hoping that one  day it would . So there it stayed hanging in the back of my closet sad i know.  The forgotten trench not only buttons now, but  will be on heavy rotation in 2014 and for many years to come. So I encourage you to buy that one item that may not fit now but trust me one day it will :)
