If the term “clean eating” is relatively new to you, then it can be overwhelming to think about just where to begin.
So not only do I want to make your life healthier, but I also want to make it easier.
Clean eating is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle that has many rewards. In a nutshell, clean eating means eating more whole, real food from mother nature and less processed food that is created in a lab. Eating food without additives, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners or preservatives and eating organically when possible to avoid pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Consuming nutrient-rich foods is the cornerstone of a good clean eating plan.
So why do I eat and encourage others to eat clean? Because the health benefits outweigh the temporary satisfaction you get from a sugary, deep fried donut. Clean eating helps you lose weight and have clearer skin, as well as reduce the risks of asthma, allergies, ADHD symptoms, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more.
