WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN: • Green bean casserole vs. green beans? • White bread vs. brown rice? • A hamburger vs. beef tenderloin? The latter in each of the above, represent foods that are in their most natural state, or as close to it as possible. Clean eating is a lifestyle approach to food and it’s preparation. Eating and appreciating food for not only how it tastes, but also what it does for your body leads to an improved life - one meal at a time.
TIPS FOR EATING CLEAN INCLUDE:
- Avoid refined, processed foods such as white flour, white sugar, white bread and traditional pasta. Instead, enjoy complex carbs such as whole grains.
- Steer clear of anything high in saturated and trans fats, fried or high in sugar.
- Look for foods with just one or two ingredients and made from the earth rather than created in a factory.
- Eat three meals a day with two snacks. Include a lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and a whole grain.
- Shop with a conscience and look for meats raised by farmers.
- Consume healthy fats like omega 3 fatty acids everyday.
- Cook and pack healthy meals to take on the go and share with your family.
- Drink lots of water.
