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.

meet our experts

Q: How can I ensure that the packaged food I'm buying is clean? – Miranda Smith, CALGARY, AB A: If you’re anything like me, you try to make as much food at home as possible, but even the most committed clean eaters still need to rely on packaged foods from time to time. The key is to be conscientious about the products you choose. Before putting any product into your cart, scan the ingredient list first. Check for added sugars; many go by names such as dextrose, maltose or fructose. Avoid products that have additives, preservatives or other chemicals that you don’t recognize, and watch out for hydrogenated, modified or fractionated oils – this indicates they have been chemically altered. Note the order of the ingredients, as they are listed in descending…
