Sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free, fat-free, low-glycemic…yup, there are a whole bunch of health buzz words out there, in terms of your diet. It all seems to go in cycles, people adjust their diets, and gladly pay the extra $7 for specially baked gluten-free, no carb, no sugar, non bread, bread. I understand there are genuine food allergies, and necessary dietary restrictions people have, which makes people have no choice but to eat a certain way. But if that’s not you, really, there is one health buzz word that’s time tested, tried and true, really makes a difference, isn’t specially labeled, and really shouldn’t cost you any extra money because of it’s trend status….
The word? Clean.
Yup, that’s it.
Eat clean. Aka, food that’s not processed, filled up with a bunch of gunk, flavor enhancers and preservatives, or (typically) out of a box. It works, it’s great for you, and pretty much anyone who I’ve ever asked how the heck they look like that…it was their answer (in regards to their diet).
It’s not easy (yes you may have to cook, and wash fruits and vegetables), and it’s not very trendy. But it’s simple, quite delicious, and has amazing results.
