It seems the last month all I keep hearing and reading is, “I ate a clean lunch”, “There is only clean food in my house”, etc. but no one explains it well. Some say they eat only a few ingredients, organic, or not eating anything from a box.
The nitty-gritty is eating “clean” is choosing to eliminate all processed foods and extra additives, artificial flavorings, artificial colorings, sugar substitutes from their everyday eating. Basically, you are choosing to eat food that has not been messed around with. Eat whole, unrefined foods as close to their natural state that can be purchased. Some of these things can come in a box. Wellness Today says, “Simply put, whole foods, which can include dairy, soy, and gluten, prepared with few added ingredients and very little processing”.
