“The soul of clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life – one meal at a time.”
Clean Eats & Treats Rule Book
Avoid processed and refined foods
- This includes white flour, sugar, bread and pasta. Enjoy complex carbs such as sweet potatoes and whole grains instead.
Shop with a conscience
- Consume humanely raised and local meats if possible.
Choose organic whenever possible
- If your budget limits you, make meat, eggs, and dairy your organic priorities.
Make it a family affair
- Food is a social glue that should be shared with loved ones. Improve the quality of your family’s life along with your own.
When buying organic stick to this list…
Dirty Dozen (foods I highly recommend to always buy organic)
Sweet Bell Peppers
Also: Green beans and kale are moving up on the most sprayed list as well
Clean Fifteen (foods you can enjoy conventionally because they are not sprayed as heavily with pesticides)
Sweet Corn (watch for GMO)
