    Introducing Keto-Friendly Alaskan Pollock Noodles!

    Introducing Keto-Friendly Alaskan Pollock Noodles! | Clean Eatz Kitchen

    Clean Eatz Kitchen introduces a new, keto-friendly fish noodle to their menu for May. The Alaskan pollock noodle is a keto-friendly noodle that’s made with wild-caught, sustainable Alaskan pollock and egg whites. The noodle is featured in their Keto Sweet Chili Stir Fry meal.

    “It’s the craziest thing, I was very skeptical at first”, recounts production manager Ben Mitchell, “The idea of a noodle made from fish sounds like it’s going to taste fishy and have a strange texture, but when it’s in the dish, it tastes just like any other noodle - no fishy taste or smell”. 

    The Alaskan Pollock noodles are the latest keto innovation from Clean Eatz Kitchen. “Keto is our second-most popular diet and we are always looking for new ways to serve those customers” says CEO Jason Nista. The keto noodles have 10g of protein to only 7g of carbs per serving. They’re also gluten free and made using only 8 ingredients.

    Clean Eatz Kitchen is a market-leader in direct-to-consumer meal plans and meal prep. For their diet conscious customers, Clean Eatz Kitchen cooks and ships pre-made meals to customers’ houses, ready to heat and enjoy. Their model takes the thought and effort out of having to meal prep to reach your diet goals. 

    Eliminate All Carbs?

    Vacation's around the corner, and you're still working to get swimsuit ready. "Eliminate all carbohydrates!" is what goes through most of our minds, but this is not the solution.

    Here's why...

    This is not a good look on anybody. Your body first feeds off of carbs for energy. They're so important for energy, in fact, that 90 percent of your brain's fuel comes from carbs. So when you cut them out, it affects your mood. Making you super hungry and angry (“hangry”) which prompts you to lose self-control around food and eat everything in sight. A balanced diet in whole grains combined with lean protein and healthy fats will help stabilize your mood and ward off hunger.

    YOU EAT TOO MUCH PROTEIN AND FAT Getting enough protein in your diet can help you lose weight, and it's an important macronutrient that will help you build lean, fat-burning muscle mass and keep you full. But when people cut out carbs, that leaves only two macronutrients: Protein and fat. And as good as protein is for you, it's not a free-for-all. Healthy fats such as omega-3s are anti-inflammatory and help you feel satiated, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing also.

    YOU HAVE NO ENERGY Exercise is important for heart health, longevity, and can help accelerate your weight-loss efforts. The problem when you give up carbs, however, is that you have no energy to hit the gym. Because carbs are your body's preferred source of energy, when they're gone, so are your energy levels.

    IT'S NOT SUSTAINABLE Individuals who cut out carbs completely feel miserable most of the time. The moodiness and lack of energy that comes from eliminating this important macronutrient group, is no way to live.

    The reason why giving up carbs can be so effective for weight loss is because people tend to eat the wrong types of carbs to begin with. Foods like refined carbohydrates (white bread, white rice, white pasta, sugar, etc.) spike your blood sugar more than the healthier complex carbs that come from whole grains and fruit. Sticking to portioned servings of those healthy complex carbohydrates is key; depending on your level of activity, your diet should be anywhere from 40 percent to 65 percent carbohydrates.

    Sure, cutting carbs can help you drop pounds in the short term. But overall, it's not a healthy or sustainable way to lose weight and keep it off.

    Suck it up, eat right, and get yourself to the gym!

    New Healthy Trends 2019 Edition

    The new diets trends (carnivore), crazy workouts (6-pack abs in 6 days), and huge weight-loss gimmicks (drink lemon water with maple syrup for 10 days to lose up to 20 pounds) are in full marketing mode.

    We all start off with high goals and extreme plans. I want to lose 60 pounds and workout 7 days a week. That may be great for some, but making smaller more obtainable goals make us stay committed longer. My signature on my email states, "take it 5lbs at a time." It gives you a great feeling to hit a 5-pound goal than the pressure of making the 60-pound goal. It becomes a lifestyle and not just a 2-week New Year's resolution.

    Check out these 12 tips:

      1. Set small, measurable goals that will help you get to your overall large goal. For instance, I will eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, incorporate leafy green veggies into 3 meals a day, drink at least 68 ounces of water daily, etc.

      1. Keep a food and exercise journal. This is extremely helpful to track how much you’re eating; sometimes you don't realize how many small bites here and there add up. You can do a hand-written journal or go digital and log your food/fitness from the computer or your smartphone. MyFitnessPal is a great resource for this.

      1. Remove processed junk food out of your diet by adding in nutritious whole foods. Skip the pantry and head to the fridge. No one really keeps a lot of processed foods in their fridge because they're usually self-stable. When looking for an afternoon snack, I tend to stick with something from the fridge (non-fat greek yogurt, fruit, veggies with hummus, edmamae, boiled eggs etc.)

      1. Try new foods. Eating steamed broccoli and baked tofu every night can get old. Look for new healthy recipes online or in magazines so you don't get bored with eating healthy. I know a good place for recipes: Red's Kitchen😉

      1. Enlist support from your friends and family. Whenever I realize I need to get back to my roots and clean up my eats, the first person I tell is Don because he then knows not to offer me sips of beer and chips. Team up with a friend and hold each other accountable for eating healthy.

      1. Eat something every 2-3 hours. This keeps your metabolism running and also makes sure you don't get ravenous and end up eating whatever is in sight when you get home from work.

      1. Keep nutritious foods on hand and ready to eat. Preparation is the key to eating healthy! Life is busy and prepping your own food sounds fun in the beginning, but by week 2, it's exhausting. Reach out to your Clean Eatz for help. With our weekly changing menu, you don’t get bored and stick to it longer.

      1. Keep tempting foods that trigger you to overeat out of the house. For me, this is chips, cereal, mini chocolate chips, and other packaged foods. If the tempting foods are already in your house because someone else bought them, I've found that putting them away in a (high) cabinet is helpful. Out of sight, out of mind.

      1. Always bring a healthy snack with you when you leave the house for more than a couple hours. Apples, bananas, carrots, bars, and a scoop of protein are very portable.

      1. Eat and enjoy your favorite foods in moderation. Deprivation tends to backfire, so if you really want a treat, then eat and enjoy it.

      1. When going out to eat, look at the menu for the restaurant online. Deciding beforehand what healthy option you're going to get can be helpful so you're not tempted by unhealthy options once you're there.

    1. Don't let one set-back keep you from working toward your goal. Don't get down on yourself if you slip-up; just make sure your next meal is a healthy one!
