When it comes to doing what’s best for our bodies and our health in general, clean eating is at the top of the list. Each and every day, the cells in our bodies are growing and changing rapidly. If we fail to eat cleanly our cells become confused, which can lead to excess weight, illness and depression.
At its simplest, clean eating is about eating whole or “real” foods — those that are unprocessed or minimally processed, unrefined, and minimally handled, keeping them as close as possible to their natural form.
Although life tends to get in the way, sometimes making it difficult to practice clean eating, try to make the time to eat clean and healthy and savor your meals as often as possible. This can include simply picking up a few fruits and vegetables at the grocery store and eating them on the go, or carrying a water bottle full of purified water with you at all times.
The reality is that clean eating is really not as difficult or challenging as one might think. But eating clean on a consistent basis requires commitment. When a high priority is placed on eating clean, it becomes easier to refrain from consuming unhealthy foods. So, do yourself a favor and eat clean. Your body and mind will be eternally grateful.
