what is clean eating?

Eat when hungry, stop when full. Find out what macro values reflect your health goals and strive to eat within them. Experiment with various ways of eating, and when you find a diet your body responds well to – be it a clean take on high fat/low carb, Paleo or flexitarian – stick with it. Choose organic whenever possible. If your budget limits you, make meat, eggs, dairy and the Dirty Dozen (ewg.org/foodnews) your organic priorities. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day, preferably from a reusable canteen, not plastic; we’re friends of the environment here! Limit your alcohol intake to one glass of antioxidant-rich red wine a day. Get label savvy. Clean foods contain short ingredient lists. Any product with a long ingredient list is human-made and not considered clean. Avoid…

Q/What’s your secret to making never-boring salads? A/I can’t abide eating just a bowl full of leaves! Rather, I take the “Elaine approach” from Seinfeld: I make salads “with lots of stuff on it.” (That was always her order at the diner where they hung out.) I start with a simple protein – grilled salmon, smoked trout, baked tofu, gigante beans, pulled chicken - usually over a base of arugula because I love that peppery bite! I always season salads with salt and pepper, a restaurant trick that goes a long way. I also like to focus on balancing textures: a little crisp, a little creamy, something pickled, something dry-crunchy (tortilla chips, nuts, breadsticks). That way, every bite has an interesting mouthfeel. – IVY MANNING Mailbox Be social! We want to hear from you! Take…

counter weight gain during menopause

CE: How can menopause affect your weight? DR. AMY LEE: During menopause, a common symptom is weight gain. A decrease in estrogen can cause the body to store fat in the abdominal area and decrease muscle-mass maintenance. This results in fewer calories burned. CE: How does menopause affect food cravings? AL: Changes in hormones can disrupt other hormones, like the hunger hormone, ghrelin. In a University of Michigan study, ghrelin was found to be higher in perimenopausal females, along with a decrease in muscle mass due to aging. The body is then set up for weight gain. CE: What are some practices to help counter these effects? AL: Be prepared for the inevitable process of aging. Learn what to eat and what exercises to do – it’s not just about cutting out sugars. Focus on…

You’ve been in the industry for over two decades. How did you get started? One of my first jobs out of school was as a marketing manager at a place called Alfalfa’s Market, one of the early retail locations featuring natural products. I had my hand in food styling, recipe creation and all aspects of marketing. This was when I began to develop an appreciation for the origin and nutrition of food. Then, 15 years ago, my father developed cancer and had to have his bladder removed. This changed his whole lifestyle. We were told by his doctor to avoid all raw foods to reduce risk of foodborne illnesses caused by bacteria. I thought, “How are we going to do this?” Salads and raw foods are the cornerstones of a nutritious diet!…
