Slimdown for Summer Honest Fridge

OK, my friends. So, I have been a really good girl these past 3 weeks – I cut out wine, added sugar (including maple syrup and honey) and bready carbs from my diet. You are probably tired of hearing it from me – my jeans suffocate me. So, something has got to give. And it is not my jeans. It has to be the food. Since I can’t duct tape my mouth, I better learn to control my hands that move food into that same mouth. So, I thought…

Do We Really Need That Much Protein?!

Join iFOODreal Facebook Group – Clean Eating Recipes, Affordable Organic Food Finds, News about GMOs – Anyone is welcome to post! Would you be surprised if I said we eat too much protein?!

But…

120 Affordable Clean Eating Organic Food Items

I thought I would share my Organic Ingredients Shopping List because everyone is curious what I buy. Besides eating clean and real food, we eat 90 – 95 % organic. Majority of people think eating organic is expensive. We are a family of 4, not rich and we can afford it. Truth is once we ditched all processed foods, gazillion of toxic cleaning supplies, paper towels, tissues, picker-uppers and 150th napkin invention for every move you make, we suddenly had so much money left to spend on real…

14 Facts I Didn’t Know About GMOs and GMO OMG Film

I am not against a certain industry or corporation – I want to know what is in our food and if it is healthy. Because GMOs have been proven to be harmful for our health and ecosystem, and even worse – the long-term effects are somewhat unknown, I’m choosing to stay away from GMOs. My common sense tells me if something is unknown – stay away. Makes sense, right?! We put on seatbelt while driving and buy life/home/auto insurance because we want to protect what matters to us most. And yet we…

4 Tasty Plant Based Clean Protein Powders

A few months ago I thought I’m done with protein powder – it prevents me from losing belly fat. Just a guess based on nothing. After speaking with a holistic nutritionist, it became clear I need to eat less meat/animal protein and make our diet more plant-based. Regardless whether this switch will make me fat or not (which nothing even close like that has happened or I doubt ever will). A norm is about 2 lbs of meat per week/person. So, plant based clean protein powder is back in…

How to Make Lemon Water

I recently started drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning. I have been buying a bag of organic lemons for Alex for a few years now and wouldn’t join the club because I was too much of a coffee addict – I had to have a cup as soon as my eyes have opened. There was no way I would drink a glass of lemon water before caffeinating my blood stream. Since I quit coffee back in August, which felt similar to quitting smoking a few…

Surviving All Inclusive Buffets Without Breaking the Scale

Last month I went on a vacation to all inclusive resort in Mexico for a week. I worked out every day, ate healthy, soaked up lots of sun and came home skinny and happy. Not only didn’t I gain any weight, I also got a flatter stomach. How? By eating healthy foods and treats in moderation, by working out on a regular basis. I just want to share with you what worked for me and show what you can eat on a vacation without coming home and bringing…
