It’s come to my attention that I haven’t really given you guys a definition of what I mean when I say this is a clean eating blog and I’d like to apologize for that!
So here we go:
Clean eating is hands down one of the best gifts you can give yourself. What I mean when I say that this blog is about clean eating is that it is focused on creating a diet that focuses on eating whole, healthy and fresh foods. I try to stay away from processed foods and if I look at a label and can’t pronounce what is in the ingredients I don’t buy it.
The focus is not to lose weight but to improve health. The majority of my diet is plant based along with grains and sometimes I’ll even indulge in meats but only if it’s completely organic!
I try, and want to emphasize the importance, to eat the rainbow everyday. The only things I count are colors, never calories. And I don’t punish myself or skip meals for occasionally over indulging in something delicious. Because let’s face it, I LOVE food and I’m sure you guys do too!
The benefits of eating clean are endless. Your energy levels will sky rocket and your body and skin will thank you almost immediately that you won’t want to eat anything that isn’t clean. The phrase “you are what you eat” is very much the truth.
Clean eating can be a bit overwhelming at first and you don’t need to jump in headfirst. Baby steps are better than no steps at all! So let’s get healthy the right way together!
