Clean eating is a spectrum. Everyone says “I have pretty good habits”; one always feels “normal” wherever one is on the spectrum. However, a 30 day challenge to eat clean is about sliding a little over on the spectrum to help you set a NEW NORMAL, and maybe you’ll keep some newfound habits with you!
Did you try a new food or learn something new? As a result, have you made any lasting new habits? Lastly, maybe you’ve dropped some bad habits. Let me know, I’d love to hear from you.
This holiday season I slowed down on exercise but my organs worked overtime on desserts and drinks! Time for a reset with 30 days of whole foods and clean eating. Who’s with me? Starting Jan 9 we’ll have more good stuff, less “iffy” stuff, and cut the bad stuff.
This is not a diet. Therefore, eat as much as you want, whenever you want. Load up on veggies, meat, fish, eggs, fruit, nuts, and healthy fats… in other words, foods that need no labels because they never saw the inside of package. DETAILS AND SIGN UP HERE!

You’re training hard. If you want to get stronger, leaner, and keep making progress, then your body needs to start the recovery process immediately post workout. Therefore, your best post workout option contains carbs and protein. The hard part is finding a healthy option without yucky ingredients.
Meet MaxSnax. I’ve collaborated with Cynthia of Cynergie Fait Maison to develop a post-workout protein bar exclusively for clients of MG Personal Training. Cynthia makes and packages each bar by hand with top-of-the-line ingredients and lots of love.
Base recipe: oats, dates, raw honey, whey protein, roasted almonds, banana. Now in two flavours: espresso and coconut-lime. Each 50g bar contains 11g of protein and NO additives.
Here’s the best part: No fumbling for change! Simply pre-pay 10 bars grab a fresh one whenever you need a post-workout snack.
RAW . ALL-NATURAL . GLUTEN-FREE . SUGAR-FREE . MADE WITH LOVE
Nutrition, and what is considered clean eating, is a spectrum. We’re all comfortable wherever we are, assuming we’re “normal”… and as we learn more, we shift a little further until that becomes the new “normal”.
Some think I’ve gone too far to want homemade kefir for breakfast, to pack kale soup for lunch, to put coconut oil in my coffee, and to say “no thanks” to most stuff from a bag or box. Others are scandalized to learn that I eat loads of dairy, red meat, and salt. (Not to mention I am a sucker for potato chips and ice cream).
Ninety percent of the time, I WANT to eat food I’ve made myself from ingredients that don’t have ingredients. For example, fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, fish and nuts. The other 10% of the time when I feel like a dessert or a cheeseburger, I just go for it because–hey–it’s only 10% of my diet!
How do you get to the point where you want to eat this way? Part of it comes from reading labels diligently… even on products your mom used to buy and brands you’ve trusted forever. Even seemingly identical products like canned tuna or canned tomatoes can differ wildly. Make it a point to read and compare ingredient lists and nutrition tables.
The more you read labels, the more you’ll choose products with fewer additives and minimal ingredients. And you might even leave products with an ingredients list on the shelf. Whether your objectives are to build muscle or shed pounds, sleep better or simply feel better; putting better fuel in the machine will make the machine run better.
