  1. Now day by day what did you make and eat with these groceries. Breakdown meals and snacks and shakes time table, please. Thx Lisa

    1. Hi! You can find that information on our "The Lifestyle" Tab - feel free to take a look!

    2. Also, the book listed at the top of the post has meal ideas, meal times, etc.

  2. I see that you guys do in take sugar with your shopping husband and I have been trying a no sugar challenge, but I have found since I started I get dizzy and shaky. I eat clean and workout for 1.5-2 hrs a day. Is it really necessary for me to cut out sugars completely? I am no longer in a weight loss phase, just trying to build muscle and tighten everything. I eat 3-4 servings of fruit a day so I do get those sugars but I have cut out all others.

    1. Hi Kasey! It's a personal choice, but sugars that are unprocessed, like sucanet or demerara sugar can actually be good for your muscles. Just make sure it's in moderation!

    2. Thank you for the advice! Thinking I will add a little back in my diet. I am not a huge sugar person to begin with but not sure I want to completely cut it out!

  3. YES!!!! Please break down what you use the food for as in meals and snacks. I NEED to be spoon fed on all this or I won't be able to stick to it like I REALLY want to. THANKS :)

    1. Hi! You can find that information on our "The Lifestyle" Tab - feel free to take a look!

    2. Also, the book listed at the top of the post has meal ideas, meal times, etc. It is a great resource to have!

  4. In another post on this website, you said that you drink Almond Breeze, but how can you classify that as "clean"? I've been looking for a clean almond milk and have yet to find one. Here are the ingredients for Almond Breeze's unsweetened vanilla almond milk, definitely not "clean" - INGREDIENTS: ALMONDMILK (FILTERED WATER, ALMONDS), CALCIUM CARBONATE, NATURAL VANILLA FLAVOR WITH OTHER NATURAL FLAVORS, SEA SALT, POTASSIUM CITRATE, CARRAGEENAN, SUNFLOWER LECITHIN, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D2 AND D-ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL (NATURAL VITAMIN E).

    1. I drink almond milk, too. I get that the ingredients are not 100% clean, but they are close. Sometimes it is hard to be perfect without giving up everything. I would much rather have the Almond Breeze than go back to cow's milk.

    2. I agree with Joy. The ingredients aren't perfect, but they also aren't artificial or synthetic. It's a healthier option than cow's milk.

    3. The ingredients added to the processing of Almond Breeze are natural and should not be considered "unclean". You shouldn't avoid it just because it has a few extra ingredients added to it.

      If you have a good blender and some simple kitchen tools, you can make your own if you are unwilling to consume the natural ingredients added to almond milk.

      Here is a good recipe for homemade almond milk:


    4. I made a litre of almond milk today using 120g raw almonds soaked in filtered water overnight, drained rinsed and added to a blender with 1 litre of filtered water and processed in a high speed blender for about 1-1.5 minutes. Easy and WAY cheaper than buying it from the supermarket (here at least...)

  5. Hi there!

    I saw that you have Veggie Protein Powder on your list and was just curious as to why you choose this over Hemp Protein Powder, which is what I use.


    1. Hi Tiffany - the veggie protein we use contains hemp protein. We mostly use the MRM Veggie Protein.


  6. what about just plain brown rice as a carb choice

  7. Are Quest protein bars considered Clean?

  8. How much can I expect to spend per month on groceries to eat clean? I realize it will vary, but a ballpark?

  9. Do you have any other suggestions for a quick grab protein bar that may be less in price than quest bars? Thanks!

  10. My favourite whey protein for training and losing weight, is Whey Protein Singapore. Great for overall fitness as well as slimming down!
