A Quick Guide To Clean Eating

Eat Clean & Give Your Body A Boost

You want to eat for your healthiest body, but you are likely sick of every fad diet that is popular for a few months, then fades out. Is there a solution that is sustainable for the health-conscious person? Fortunately, the answer is yes! Clean eating skips the hyper-processed, minimally-nutritious food on which so many of us rely today for whole, nourishing food. After you eat clean for a time, you will find that your taste buds are retrained to want this healthy food instead of junk. To help you on the path to clean eating, here are a few guidelines.

  • Au Naturel: Try to eat things in their most natural state. That means skipping on processed grains and sugars in favor of whole grains and natural sweeteners. Look for fruits and vegetables, grass-fed and free-range meat, and unflavored nuts to fill out your diet.
  • Box Out: If food comes in a box, odds are high it has been processed to add in unnecessary artificial flavor, which strips out some of the nutritional value. Try to get away from eating pre-packaged foods.
  • Read Up: If you cannot pronounce one of the items on the ingredient list in your food, odds are it is not naturally occurring and your body is better off without it.
  • Shop Smart: When you are in the grocery store, there are a few items you should absolutely avoid: high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, food coloring, artificial sweeteners, nitrates, and nitrites.
