Clean Eating

what is it? – a lifestyle centred around eating mainly unprocessed foods, fresh fruits & vegetables, lean meats and whole grains.

so what should I eat – all fresh fruits and veggies, organic lean meats (beef, turkey, chicken, salmon etc) nuts, natural nut butters, greek yogurt, whole wheat bread, tortillas and pasta, whole grain (quinoa, brown and wild rice etc), Rolled oats, hummus, omega-3 enriched eggs, almond or soy milk, coffee, tea and water.

what should I avoid? – soda and other sugary drinks, fast food, fried foods, white: bread, pasta and rice. Foods with added preservatives, dried fruits, choose fresh fruits and vegetables over canned ones, products labeled “reduced fat” or “low fat”, chips, juice, candy bars and cereal.

the 80/20 rule – eat healthy, whole & minimally processed foods 80% of the time, indulge 20% of the time!
