Instagram Giveaway: That Clean Life Memberships!

Big news! We’re super excited to announce our first ever giveaway. We’ve teamed up with That Clean Life to give away one-month memberships to 5 lucky peeps! Full details ahead.


- Our story in a nutshell -

We’ve been struggling to eat healthy for a long time with our conflicting and ever-changing schedules, bad habits and lack of motivation. Over the past year, our saving grace was monthly clean eating challenges by That Clean Life which we’ve chronicled through several photoseries (check these out to see what the recipes look like!). But between challenge weeks, we often fell through the cracks and found ourselves running out of food or even worse, wasting food, resorting to takeout and making unhealthy choices.

- Why we love That Clean Life -

With the newly launched That Clean Life platform, we’ve been equipped with the tools and support of a community to successfully plan healthy meals at home. I love that I have access to a growing database of clean (and surprisingly yummy) recipes that can easily be slotted into weekly meal plans. I love that my grocery list is automatically generated. I love that I can be lazy and use pre-made meal plans. Oh, it also helps to be part of a positive and motivated community. The two of us have never cooked more consistently at home than we have over the last two months.


We want to spread the love to people like us who’ve been through the same struggle. I have total admiration for those who can do this all on their own. But for people like us who need that extra push, this is worth trying.

That Clean Life – Onward & Upward, Day 3

You know that feeling, when you come downstairs looking for snacks, open the fridge a few times but it seems like nothing will satisfy your craving? You’re surrounded by fruits and nuts because it was strategically stocked in plain view by your past self but you really just want a family-size bag of the nastiest chips. You quickly realize your first world problems and pretend you aren’t deeply disappointed.

Kale chips and popcorn on the stovetop have been my heroes in this all too familiar scenario. Kale chips made with a little olive oil and sea salt are already so good. But when you dress it up like this? Just stellar.
