About Me

Hi! My name is Bryony and I am a Freelance Marketeer, Health Blogger, Amateur Triathlete and coffee addict!  I am passionate about the benefits of keeping fit and eating healthily, and living proof that you can fit it into a busy lifestyle. I am a firm believer that clean eating needs to be affordable.  My ingredients come mainly from Tesco and everything I post I eat!

I am not a nutritionist or a personal trainer but I am both a fully qualified chef and fitness instructor!  Although I haven’t worked in either of these industries for quite some time now, it gives me a pretty good background for writing healthy, delicious recipes and talking about health and fitness.

I swim, run, cycle, orienteer, hash and love heaving weights around when I can fit it in! I have competed in all distances and my proudest achievement is completing Ironman Austria in 2013 with a time of 13hrs and 5 mins.

My dream is to be a professional writer and to publish a recipe book.

cleanleanbean is a blog for people who are looking for ideas and information on realistic and affordable healthy living. A lot of healthy living or eat clean websites are very middle class, shop at farmers markets, expensive and prescriptive.  cleanleanbean is about quick easy, inexpensive recipes and down to earth, training advice.

Every recipe has adaptations to fit different ways of clean eating:

Grain Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, High Fat, Low Fat, High Protein, Vegetarian, Low Carb, Need Carbs

There are handy tips on how you could reduce the cost of the meal even further or how to make it more delux if you want to treat yourself.

There are Life Hacks on how to make it even quicker to prepare and ways to use up left over ingredients to reduce wastage.

cleanleanbean is realistic and affordable living, your way, your budget

This is not a “look at me and my perfect life” blog.  This is a “real life, being healthy can be difficult in this busy world, but this is how I manage it most of the time” blog. And its how I eat.  This is what I actually do. Over the years I have refined my practices to make being healthy possible whilst working full time, having a time consuming hobby, a busy social life and not being a millionaire!  I am delighted to share those hints and tips with you.


My Promise to You

This will be an honest account of what I do, unless stated otherwise.  If I receive payment to promote a product this will be made clear on the post.  I will also make it clear whether it is a product that I currently use, will start to use or don’t see a need for it in my life.

The recipes posted will be meals that I actually eat myself but where possible I will provide adaptations to suit other diets.

I will try and answer all your questions and queries and would love to hear your feedback and suggestions for topics and recipes that you would like covered on the blog.

This isn’t my blog it’s ours – lets make it as interactive as possible.  I would really appreciate your shares onto social media so that we can create and grow our community. Thank you so much for reading.
