Healthy 'clean eating' challenge

I'm finally done with diets. It's only taken me about ten years to come to this conclusion. I've counted weight watchers points, Slimming world syns, weighed and measured things, counted calories, eaten cabbage soup, lived on slimming shakes and everything else you can think of. Now I'm tired of it.

I've finally decided it's time to just be healthy, cut the junk food and cut the emotional and boredom eating. I won't be weighing, measuring or counting anything but I plan to cut out refined sugar, processed food, additives and white pasta, rice and bread. Any big change to your diet is never easy but I'm determined to finally be healthy. Recently I've had a bad run of eating junk food and I feel like my body is begging to be treated better. I was constantly feeling lethargic, having stomach upsets and just generally feeling awful and decided enough is enough. It feels like
the right time to make real changes and I really want to feel a difference in my overall health and well being. Losing some weight would be a nice side effect too :) I'll still have the odd treat from time to time as I want to be realistic and for this to be a permanent change rather than a 'diet'

Here's a quick pic of my first breakfast. Greek yogurt, rude health granola and strawberries

I've been looking for recipes to make alternatives to all my favourite foods and I've come up with some ideas that I can't wait to try. I'd love to hear from you in the comments if you want to share ideas or stories on health, healthy eating, weight loss or anything you want to share :)
