Raise your hand if you ate your lunch this week in front of your computer or behind the wheel of a car? Yup, ditto ditto. We’ve all been there. I’m not sure when we as a society started to look at eating as this annoying thing we need to cram into our “busy” schedule.
If your calendar looks like a multi-colored hot mess (like mine used to) and you forgot to eat, or didn’t eat well, this episode is especially for you.
My guest today is Harriet Morris, and she’s going to help us simplify clean eating.
In this episode, you will learn:
- How to eat cleaner and how it can affect our mindset
- What complicates our efforts to eat clean?
- What does it mean to have a “heart-centered approach” to eating healthily?
- Simple things to keep in mind when clean eating
Let’s be clear, clean eating isn’t about sacrifice or punishment. It’s about making tiny, daily choices that nourish your body, mind and spirit. Harriet shares her experience on how to get off ‘The Sugar Rollercoaster’ and stop feeling so darn guilty about food.
I think you’re going to LOVE this interview!
My challenge for you this week:
Set yourself a challenge—at the right level for you—to help you eat cleaner.

Favorite quotes from this episode:
[02:08] “Clean eating is a diet where the only (or the overriding) consideration is health. So that might be physical health, mental health or emotional health.” – Harriet
[11:59] “For one person, giving up [for a detox], sugar, alcohol, coffee and gluten for example, they might be able to deal with that. For lots of people, that is too much.” – Harriet
[12:37] “We are wired to eat for pleasure. That is just something that we are – it’s innate to us. And the problem is, is the, all of these processed foods give us this pleasure, but they give us it far too much and far too quickly.” – Harriet
[15:22] “If you don’t actually slow down and read the label, you realize – this is just packaging. This is just marketing. It’s not actually good, wholesome food for me.” – Mary
[24:46] “I think that it’s much better to have an 80/20 approach where you say 80 percent of my diet is clean, but I’m going to allow that 20 percent because I’m going for a meal next week because it’s my birthday and I want to go out and have a drink. And I think that way, cleaner eating is sustainable.” – Harriet
[34:42] “We have this vision that, oh, well once I lose that 10 pounds, 20 pounds, 50 pounds, my life will just be sorted.” – Mary
