Clean Eating 101

 

You’ve probably heard of clean eating, but you may not know what it is exactly or how to go about cleaning up your diet. Eating clean is a good way to refresh your eating habits: it’s about eating more of the best and healthiest options in each of the food groups—and eating less of the not-so-healthy ones. That means embracing foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, plus healthy proteins and fats. It also means cutting back on refined grains, added sugars, salt and unhealthy fats. And since you don’t have to count calories or give up whole food groups, it’s easy to follow.

The heart of clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible. Eat five times a day,three meals and two small snacks. You want to include a lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and a complex carbohydrate with each meal. This keeps your body energized and burning calories efficiently all day long. Set yourself up for success and meal prep, including snacks.

Remember clean eating is a lifestyle, not a fad or restricted diet. It’s a healthy approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life – one meal at a time.
