How can you stay healthy in a simple way? Eat clean. What does that mean? Clean eating is consuming whole foods which are near as possible to their natural state. In other words, it is eating only foods which have undergone minimal processes of refining, processing and handling, making them as close to their natural state as possible. It does not involve eating a specific amount of food or less of something, but being mindful of where the food comes from, its process and how you finally put it on your plate.
Nowadays, it is difficult to find foods which have not been refined or processed in some way. This becomes a challenge for clean eating enthusiasts. Clean eating emphasizes raw food options such as fruits and vegetables while eliminating refined grains, sugars, salt, unhealthy fats and proteins.
Who should be eating clean?
Anyone aspiring for a healthy diet (lifestyle, not actually a diet) should go for clean foods. Eating clean is very easy to follow and does not require any strenuous effort apart from being mindful of your food choices. Unlike dieting, you are not restricted to any specific amount of food and hence calories. You can eat as much as you would like to, or less for that matter. What is important is to ensure that you make healthy food choices.
How to Go about Eating Clean Food and Why it is Important to You
Clean eating has a lot of dietary benefits that comes along with it. Knowing how to make the right food choices is only the beginning. With the challenge of not knowing which food is to be considered clean, it is vital that you follow these steps to be able to eat clean.
Clean eating requires an effort on your part to consciously choose what to eat and be mindful all the time. It is not difficult once you are aware of what you should be eating and what to avoid. Avoid or cut back on anything refined or containing unknown ingredients which form a lengthy list on the label. These are most likely processed and ultimately unclean foods.
