One of the most difficult parts of my day-to-day is eating right and healthy. I’m constantly on the run, and it’s truly such a challenge, plus – I must confess that – I’m highly indisciplined when it comes to feeding myself properly. I always try to find affordable, on-the-go, tasty, healthy meals that I can keep with me for a more balanced nutrition, but I’m a skeptic when it comes to programs, weight-loss means or anything that involves losing weight but that isn’t related to just eating well. Diet pills and diets; I’ve done them all.

Then I found out about Eat Clean LLC, a company that provides you with on-the-go healthy meal options all week long. Depending on the plan you choose, from a variety of options such as vegetarian, paleo, vegan and more, they deliver the food straight to your door, in plastic tupperware, so you can eat well while you move – like me, because I never stop moving.

So, I decided to try a paleo meal plan with them for a week and this is what happened:

I saved so much time

Within preparing meals, driving around trying to find a meal, or thinking about what I’m going to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I spend a lot more time than if my meal is just ready and prepared. The food was delivered to my door early in the morning, in coolers, where I would have a full breakfast, lunch and dinner that I could pack up in the cooler and just pop into the microwave for a couple minutes when I was ready to eat it.

I learned how diverse heathy food can be

Never had I ever thought that jerk burger & cauliflower coconut rice or blueberry pancakes and bacon would taste so delicious when made completely clean with fresh ingredients and the seasonings were insane. So savory, you could taste the freshness in the meals, and I learned how to diversify clean eating for my lifestyle.

I lost weight 

I lost 3 lbs in one week. That’s almost impossible for me. Now, to some, that’s not the goal, but to me, losing weight is always amazing. Part of the reason why I have issues losing weight is because I don’t eat five times a day, healthy foods that will keep me full and will feed me the proper nutrients.
