The Clean Slate Day 30!

The Slate is Clean!

Day 30 has come and gone, at Disneyland no less. Sure, there was a bit of dark chocolate and some celebratory red wine, but all in all, the healthiest trip to an amusement park I’ve ever witnessed. Yet again, the folks at The Blue Bayou were incredibly accommodating with my gluten-free and dairy-free request. The chef came out and took my order. I had some tasty short ribs with veggies. They even offered me some gluten-free rolls, but I declined.

Tips for Eating Clean at amusement parks:

If you are ever at Disneyland and need a great resource for gluten-free friendly foods, check here!

If your digestion is sensitive, I recommend bringing some HCL or digestive enzymes to help with any meals that may cause “problems”.

Ask questions! Many attractions are committed to keeping their customers happy which means they want to anticipate and accommodate your needs. Don’t be afraid to speak up!

Use Mr. Google. Unsure about the safety of a particular item? Look it up!

Plan ahead. This cannot be stressed enough. If you do not have your own safe choices, then you’re more likely to make poor choices and justify them out of desperation.


The Clean Slate is finished so I will no longer be recording my daily food here on the blog, but I will be resuming our regularly scheduled recipes and encouragements for healthy eating and living. I’m also committed to kicking the phone habit and starting the meditation habit. I will prevail!

Clean Eats


Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs, a plethora of fruit

Snack: Paleo Trail Mix, some 86% dark chocolate

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
