The Clean Slate Day 21 and a Recipe


2014/01/28 by nikkiledford


Savasana in the Sun.

It’s been 3 weeks! Only nine days left 🙂

As I mentioned yesterday, my gym is starting a 30 day Fitness Challenge today! During the kick-off meeting, I got a lot of questions about SNACKS.

For those who feel stuck on what they should eat between meals, I’ve compiled some great suggestions and pics of good clean snack items! Click on some pictures for recipes. Also, check out a past post I did about snacks.

Clean Eats

Breakfast: Lively Smoothie (haha, that’s my name for it because it gives me crazy energy; mental and physical) See below for recipe.

Lunch: 4 oz. smoked pork butt with guacamole, plantain and cucumber chips

Snack: Cracked Pepper Real Stick jerky, Pineapple chunks

Dinner: 1 Chili Lime chicken patty (trader joes) with 1 c. shredded parsnip and sweet potato, 1/2 avocado


Lively Smoothie

1 banana, frozen
1/2 c. frozen wild blueberries
handful spinach
1 c. almond milk, more if needed
1 inch chunk of raw grass-fed liver, frozen
1 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of salt

  1. When you purchase the liver, make sure it came from a grass-fed, organic cow. The liver is the body’s main filtration organ for toxins… healthy cows = healthy livers. Wash the liver thoroughly and freeze in chunks or freeze whole and cut off a piece for the smoothie.
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Drink! (I PROMISE it does NOT taste like liver… or anything meat-related)

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
