By  |  0 Comments

Clean eating is a lifestyle devoted to being mindful about eating a whole, plant based diet. It is important to eat foods as close to their natural state as possible and avoid processed foods the best of our ability. Since 80% of our country’s food is processed foods that means they are made using GMOs, which are harmful to our bodies and even banned in countries in Europe! Make sure to read my blog post on GMOs here!

While shopping it is important to purchase organic produce when possible to avoid pesticides and harmful chemicals that are sprayed on conventionally grown produce. I know it’s time consuming to go the extra step when it comes to our health, but I assure you..your health and happiness is IMPORTANT! And- after the first few times of playing grocery store detective it becomes second nature and quite fun!
