What Is Clean Eating?

Increasingly more people are starting to realize the benefits of clean eating. This lifestyle approach puts emphasis on the consumption of whole, natural foods. A clean diet is based on fruits and vegetables, lean meat, nuts and seeds, unprocessed grains, dairy products, and herbs. It’s recommended to avoid processed foods and artificial ingredients.

Food is the key to good health. If you drink sodas and eat junk food, your body will show it. For lasting energy, choose whole, fresh foods in their natural state. Steer clear of refined sugar, breakfast cereals, processed meat, white bread, and pasta. Clean foods contain no more than two ingredients. Cook your own meals and use natural spices instead of salt. Whole foods are delicious by themselves don’t add additional salt or sugar.

They also promote better sleep at night and keep your brain functioning at top capacity. A natural diet will help you keep your weight under control with minimum effort.

Salad

When we think of good, clean eating, think, ‘a salad’, it should be one of the first things that you think of to eat. And rightly so, for there is nothing unhealthy about the greens and veggies. Try to make it your goal to eat at least one large salad a day. Don’t load it with fattening salad dressing, use Italian or a lighter oil based dressing.
