Welcome to Clean Eating Chelsey! My name is Chelsey, and I am a twenty six year old with a love for living a healthy lifestyle. I started this blog in June of 2010 with the hopes of sharing my experiences and lifestyle with readers who have similar interests as me.
I married to the love of my life, “The Husband”, on July 30, 2010. We live in a small suburb of Chicago about 30 minutes outside of the city.
We have one baby, our Pit bull-Terrier Mix dog, Charlie, who is two years old.
We are also currently expecting our first HUMAN babies – twin girls – set to arrive in September 2013. We are thrilled and so excited to meet our baby girls.
I am a fifth grade teacher who has a passion for teaching and children — I can’t imagine doing anything else for my career. I enjoy running, cooking (obviously), spending time with family and friends, taking pictures, and snuggling on the couch with a good book.
So what’s this whole “clean eating” this about, you ask? When it comes to food, I try to eat whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible. I check all of my nutrition labels on my boxed foods to ensure that there are no artificial ingredients lurking in my food. It’s hard to know these days just what’s in the food you’re eating, and I believe that being educated about my food choices is the responsible thing to do. I also became a vegetarian in 2010. A large part of that decision was because I had a hard time eating mainstream meat that has been treated with antibiotics or hormones and eating organic meat is quite expensive. Growing up, I was never too fond of meat to begin with, so I took the plunge a few years ago.
At Clean Eating Chelsey, you can be sure to find tasty recipes (gluten free and vegetarian!), some life stories, and a lot of fun. Thanks for reading — I hope you come back soon!
