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. It’s about eating real food, for a healthy, happy life. 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…

letters & advisory board

Q/ Can eating clean help me age more gracefully? A/ As my grandmother used to say, “Couldn’t hurt!” Many bodily processes, such as detoxification by the liver and numerous markers of aging, are diet-dependent. Your ability to fight oxidative damage depends on dietary antioxidants. Vitamins essential for optimal functioning in old age like B12 and D can be found in whole foods like eggs and fatty fish. Many cases of insulin resistance – the single marker most predictive of degenerative conditions of aging, such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity – can be prevented, treated or reversed by diet! Is there a particular diet conducive to aging well? Yes. And it can be summed up in three words: Eat. Real. Food. Food your great-great-great grandmother would’ve recognized as food. Food that will…

the dutch art of doing nothing & the norwegian love for nature

First, there was hygge, the Danish concept of mindful, comfortable conviviality – think warm fires, fuzzy slippers and overall contentment. Now, two similar concepts, from the Dutch and the Norwegians, respectively, are gaining traction: niksen and friluftsliv. The Dutch art of niksen is the mindful practice of doing nothing… with intention. To truly do nothing but experience your own existence is deceptively difficult, but, once mastered, the benefits are impressive. Studies link meditation practices like niksen to a greater ability to let go of negative self-thought, enhanced cognitive ability and more attentiveness. Olga Mecking, author of best seller Niksen: Embracing the Dutch Art of Doing Nothing, tells CE: “We don’t have to guide our thoughts any certain way; they just have to run free, and that’s usually when our best ideas…
