What is Eating Clean?

Eating “clean” has a few simple principles behind it, with small differences depending on who you talk to.   Actually the main differences I have found from one source to the next is just the preciseness that one follows the essential principles.

Here are the mane tenets of this way of eating:

– avoid processed foods

– eat often, and smaller meals (5-6x/day or every3-4 hours)

– avoid or eliminate alcohol

– eliminate refined sugar

– eat lean proteins

– avoid colas and juices

– avoid saturated and trans fats

– eat fresh fruits and vegetables Read More

Tomorrow I will define what EATING CLEAN is.  Its not necessarily a vegan way of eating, but as I have already discovered, it is easily possible to be vegan and not “eat clean”.  This is a necessary distinction for my purposes in this project and though I will be trying some products that arent considered clean, I am doing so to explore peoples options in transition from non vegan to vegan. Its not always easy, and sometimes, some of the meat and dairy mimicking products can ease the way.

Cheers

Joey
