For The Clean of You

For The Clean of You

Delicious and fresh grapefruit 🙂

To be clean or not to be…
Not the most simple question
We want health
We need health
And yet we are tempted by the bad
But the “Oh so GOOD!”
The convenience
The thrill of the smells
The watering of the mouths
The perfect first bites
We crave these moments
The flavor
The taste
We need these moments
But while we do have these moments
We tend to forget the simple joys
The makings of a new a fresh dish

The simplicity of a piece of fruit
The crispness of a fresh veggies
The warmth of fresh baked bread
The smoothness of a hot cup of tea

To be clean or not to be…
Is this your answer?
With busy lives
No time to think let alone breath
Strangled by the thought of freedom
Can we take control in what we eat?
Let alone how we eat
Commitment can be a thought of fear
For failure can be an option
But forget perfection
Focus on the thought
Of freshness
Of peace

To be clean or not to be…
That is my question
Struggles of the past
Grief of the present
Will no longer be my future
Taking control can feel like deprivation
But the end goals taste sweet
To be clean is a goal I will always strive
To indulge in the process of fresh
Creating from inspiration
Beginning life from scratch

To be clean or not to be
That is my answer
For simplicity will be a way of life
To lose I will gain
But fear not
Simple will lead to clean
And clean will lead to well
And well will lead to free
This journey is mine
Is it yours?…

I wanted to write a poem about my on going journey of trying to eat clean. It all started because of weight loss but the more I research and eat the more I love the idea of it. I hope to share lots of recipes and stories about this journey and hope I ignited the thought in anyone about eating clean 🙂
