My favorite "clean" eats!!

Eating clean isn't as hard as I thought it would be! I would say i eat clean 90% of the time. Most ingredients that i use for my home cooked meals are clean. All my meat, cheese, fruits,nuts, and veggies are clean. As well as my whole wheat breads, pastas, etc.. 

The hardest part for me was finding clean pre packaged items! But you know what!? They are everywhere!! You just need to know what to look for! My #1 rule of thumb is first read the list of ingredients. If there is BHT, BHA, or Monosodium Glutamate(MSG), put it back. These are the three most common preservatives. You will find them in frozen dinners, most cereals, granola bars, crackers, etc.. 

Rule #2, typically if you can pronounce/recognize everything on the ingredient list then its safe. If there is an ingredient that you're not sure of, google it!! 

Rule #3, try and look for short ingredient lists. Have you ever seen the lists that take up an entire side of the box of food? yuck! 

My local grocery stores have great health foods sections, that's where i find most of my snacks! But I've also found a lot of great items in regular isles as well! Like Triscuits, Stacy's pita chips, Mama's Best cereal, Kashi, luna bars etc...

Here are some of my clean favorites right now, they are all SOOO good i guarantee that you won't miss the processed crap.....

Oh Annie's......I LOVE anything they make!! I have yet to find something that i don't! Their grahams are way better then Teddy Grahams, and their Cheddar Bunnies are way better then Goldfish! And how CUTE is their bunny logo! On the top of the boxes they have a bunny bum!! CUTEST BUNNY BUM ever...

 Back To Nature has amazing Granola! Super short ingredient list too!

I really like Kashi anything as well! I like their cereal, breakfast bars, etc..
Mom's Best Brand cereal, it tastes amazing, is made with whole grains, and super cheap! I can normally get a box for $2.50!! 

You will be so mad i told you about this one!! Stacy's Pita Chips!! I am OBSESSED with the cinnamon sugar ones!!!! They are divine!! Heaven in a bag!!!

Full Circle has a lot of great products! I love these fruit strips! They give me a sugar fix for only 45cals a strip!
And LaraBar, don't eat one expecting something super sweet. Eat one expecting nuts and dates and they won't be disappointing! These are a great source of protein for on the go meals!

There you have it!! What are your favorite clean foods??!! And please let me know if you try any!!! I hope you guys are doing great! I am soo thankful for every single follower i have! You guys give me such motivation, i hope i can return the favor!

My favorite Larabars are peanut butter cookie and peanut butter chocolate chip. Yummy! Love Stacy's pita chips and Annie's cheddar bunnies too. Can't wait to try the rest. Thanks for this list, Meggan. For whatever reason, when I think of clean eating I think only fruits, veggies and meats. Glad to hear I am wrong! :)
