Clean Eating

Clean eating, or eating clean, has been a phrase that most of us are hearing almost daily. Does that mean you wash your food before you eat it? No. It is simple eating with cutting out all processed foods, fried foods, and foods high in sugar, salt and fats, and eating things that are found in their natural state, like fruits and vegetables. It may sound impossible but it’s not. Our bodies are made to be healthy and our bodies are at optimum health when we eat simply and live active lifestyles. Below are tips to help you change to clean eating mentality for your overall health, body, and skin.

Drink Water – Cut out all unnatural drinks including juices from concentrate, soda, caffeinated drinks, etc. Sugary and caffeinated drinks are not good for you and will cause your skin and body to look and feel distressed and dehydrated. Opt for water. If you need some flavor, slice up a couple lemon slices and add it to an ice cold glass of water. It will also help your skin color even out and minimize acne.

Avoid Salt – Salt is not good for the body in high quantities and most of us consume too much salt and don’t even realize it. Salt is in everything that is processed so it’s important to read labels before purchasing food. Even organic soups and such can have a high level of salt (sodium) so beware. The daily intake should be less than 2,300 milligrams of salt per day.

Whole grains – Eat whole grains. Many foods say that they are whole grain or whole wheat, but if you read the ingredients label, read enriched wheat flour. If it says enriched, put it down! Only purchase foods that say whole wheat (not processed). Other delicious grains other than wheat include quinoa and brown rice.

Eat foods In Their Natural State The less processed foods you eat, the better you will look and feel. Eat foods that are naturally ready to enjoy, that aren’t sweetened or tainted with artificial color and flavor. This includes whole grain breads and crackers, quinoa, brown rice, fruits and vegetables. If you want to add flavor to your food, avoid condiments like barbeque sauce, mayonnaise, and ketchup and instead choose natural herbs and spices to give your food more flavor.

Eating clean is not difficult but does take some getting used to. If you are proactive about taking care of your body and health, it will take care of you and exude through your skin. We are lucky to have Google so any of your questions can be answered at a few clicks on your computer or cell phone.
