What is clean eating anyway? The term “clean” makes me chuckle when relating it to food. It wasn’t a term used in my southern family’s meal-planning vocabulary. They grew fruit and vegetable gardens and canned and froze the foods for later use. Chickens and beef eaten were grass-fed and hormone free like the kind from Black Diamond meats.
Clean eating doesn’t necessarily mean washing fruits and vegetables though that makes good sense. Cleaning produce thoroughly helps kill bacteria. A vegetable and fruit spray for raw foods can be easily found at your local health food store. Some prefer just using vinegar.
Clean eating is all about consuming the most nutritious whole foods, free of artificial ingredients, and not GMO or processed and refined foods.
