Yesterday was the first day of spring, and we’re getting rain here in California to prove it! I hope you’re starting to see warmer weather or other signs of spring. This post includes an invitation to join my Spring Clean Eating Challenge!
What is a Clean Eating Challenge?
My Challenge is not a diet in a strict sense, but a chance to re-focus your efforts on choosing real, whole foods over processed foods. I’ve decided to make this one a 3-week Challenge, and it starts on April 2nd, 2018.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider joining my Spring Clean Eating Challenge:
- You’re curious to try going gluten- or dairy-free, or setting some other diet-related goal for 21 days, such as going sugar-free or grain-free. (I’ll be sending out an intention and goal-setting worksheet for you to set your own clean eating goal based on how you want to feel at the end).
- You aren’t feeling as energetic or healthy as you’d like, and you have a suspicion that you’d feel better if you ate better.
- You’ve heard about clean eating, but you’re not really sure what it’s all about.
- Your doctor or healthcare practitioner has recommended that you try an elimination diet, but you just haven’t been motivated to do it yet.
- You find that you are more committed to making better food choices when you are in a supportive environment with accountability.
If you’re looking for a super strict plan, then this probably isn’t for you. I’m all about promoting an abundance of real, healthy foods, and I don’t shame anyone for their choices. I also know that real life happens and things don’t always go according to plan. I WILL help you stay on track, though, and you can find accountability and support in our dedicated closed Facebook group as well.
What if I am vegan or vegetarian?
That’s fine, unless you’re offended by my recommendations to include animal protein. I will be sending out worksheets with general nutritional information, and I include animal protein as a recommended protein. You can certainly adapt my Challenge to meet most any dietary restrictions, and I can offer suggestions as well.
How much does it cost to join the Challenge?
How does this Challenge differ from others around the web?
My Clean Eating Challenge is different because it’s meant to be flexible enough to meet your individual needs. If you aren’t sure what your needs are or what your dietary goal might be, I’ll be sending out worksheets to help with that. Once you join, you’ll be added to an e-mail list that I’ll be using to communicate. The other difference is that you’ll have an opportunity to interact with me directly on our weekly Facebook Live sessions (or on a phone session if you join as a VIP).
What precautions do I need to take before joining?
Since I am not a doctor or licensed healthcare practitioner, I ask that you consult your healthcare provider before making changes to your diet routine. I have a masters degree in public health nutrition and I am a nutrition specialist and health educator, but I won’t be offering specific dietary advice to treat a medical condition. I’m acting as a cheerleader/educator/supporter/guide for the 21 days. If you join as a VIP member, we’ll do a one-on-one consult where I can offer suggestions for meal planning and ways to overcome obstacles.
If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me! carrieATcleaneatingkitchenDOTcom. I so look forward to doing this Challenge with you!!!
I’ve decided to offer one free Basic level membership to one lucky reader. I’ll pick one winner at random on Friday, March 30th. Winner will be asked to sign a liability waiver. Enter here:
