Helpful Hints & Tips!

Interested in eating clean?  Read this post first and then come back and read these helpful hints & tips!

We will be posting more hints & tips along the way but here are a few to get you started!

  • Get a Costco or Sam’s Club Membership (we have found that Costco sells more “clean” food than Sam’s but check out both in your area before you purchase a membership).  Click here to view our shopping list for Costco.
  • Utilize your Amazon Account!  Check out their Subscribe & Save discount for items you purchase on a regular basis or for items that are hard to find where you live.  Click here to view our shopping list for online retailers.
  • This was mentioned in a previous post but it is important to point out again…as soon as you get home from the grocery store, wash, chop & divide your vegetables otherwise you may not eat them!
  • Buy multiple sets of measuring cups (and spoons) & leave them in the containers of the food you eat oftenThis makes portion control very easy!  We leave measuring cups in our rice, beans & oat flour!
  • After you have weighed & measured everything, pack your meals in BPA-free containers the night before so you can just put them in your cooler in the morning.  Grab & Go!

Remember, this is a lifestyle and not a diet.

  1. I need a lil help in portion sizes like how much complex carb in each container how much oz of chicken. And how much veggies. I'm 5'1 and 120 lbs looking to lean out a bit.

    1. Hey! Thanks so much for commenting on He&She. Hopefully we can help you out a bit - Whitney may add her thoughts too.

      This is what I suggest - about 4-6oz lean meat (chicken, turkey, fish, etc), as far as complex carbs (brown rice, sweet potatoes, etc) you will want to stay at about 6oz or the suggested serving size on the container. Veggies, not fruit, but veggies, you can eat as many of as you wish!

      Hope that helps!

    2. I would agree with Tiffany on her portion size recommendations. The link I am including has a good list of clean foods & approximate portion sizes! Let us know if you have any other questions!

    3. Thanks for posting that link, it's great. When she gives the portion sizes for carbs, are those for cooked or uncooked?

    4. Lindsay,

      They are cooked portions!


  2. Hey,

    This may sound like a dumb question, but I just wanted to know what you think is the best way to cook vegetables so as to retain the most nutrients


    1. Hello! Great question!

      Here are a few rules:
      Minimal cooking is best for all.
      If it has skin, keep it on.
      Steam instead of sautee.

      Hope that helps!
