what is clean eating?

The soul of clean eating is consuming food the way nature delivered it, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life – one meal at a time. Eat five to six times a day – three meals and two to three small snacks. Include a lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and a complex carbohydrate with each meal. This keeps your body energized and burning calories efficiently all day long. Choose organic whenever possible. If your budget limits you, make meat, eggs, dairy and the Dirty Dozen ( your organic priorities. Drink at least two liters of water a day, preferably from a reusable canteen, not plastic; we’re friends of the environment here! Limit…

Q: What is the New Nordic Diet? Does it offer any benefits to the clean-eating lifestyle? – Lauren Wilcox, LOS ANGELES, CA A: There’s a lot to like in the New Nordic Diet (NND), which lays out the basic commandments of healthy eating, with one or two caveats. It focuses exclusively on whole foods and makes the case for buying local, seasonal and organic produce. On the NND, you avoid packaged foods and chemical additives in favor of whole grains, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits such as berries and lots of omega-3s from fish. What’s not to like? One quibble I have with the diet is that it limits meat, which, if grass-fed – as the diet recommends – is perfectly fine to consume as part of a healthy, balanced diet. (To…
