Our #Clean14 Challenge Is Back — and It’s Free! The holidays are on the horizon, and with them inevitably comes a little overindulging – and that’s OK! But before the party starts, this is the optimal time to get your body prepared for the extra stress, calories and alcohol that go hand-in-hand with the celebrations. Consider this your preholiday health cleanup: We’re giving you a 14-day, dietitian-designed meal plan that focuses on antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory foods to boost energy, improve mood and ward off excess weight gain. The plan is free of processed foods, alcohol, gluten, sugar and dairy; it’s Paleo-friendly; and each day is brimming with delicious, nutrient-dense foods. We received incredible feedback from our first installment of this challenge in 2017, so don’t miss the chance to join this round, starting…

superfoods for every foodie

What is a superfood anyway? These days, it’s such a ubiquitous term that you probably can’t help but wonder, “Is it really that super? What makes it so?” And it’s a fair question. I can’t speak for all publishers or food brands that employ the term, but I can certainly speak for Clean Eating. The process for proclaiming a food “super” first starts out with our team consulting our advisory board and gathering responses on what they consider the most nutrient-dense and of-the-moment foods. We then take the most overlapped suggestions from panel to research and distill the short list until we have a tight crop of nutritional heavyweights that the science simply can’t deny. Every fall, we round up 10 of the most healing and preventative foods of the…

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…

cheat your way to lean

Being a health and nutrition correspondent means that companies frequently send me their products, and ask for my stamp of approval. Most of the time I dive into research, give the product a try, and send the company honest feedback about what they’ll need to change before I’ll recommend it. Plus my hectic job and my determination to stay fit means I’m always hunting for a quick and nutritious way to fill up on nutrients my body needs. So I can confidently say, “I’ve tried it all”. Last Tuesday work was especially hectic, but I’d booked with my $200 an hour personal trainer, Tony, a triathlon winning, organic-to-the-bone fitness guy with a ten mile long track record of whipping the “who’s who” into shape in record time, so I had to…

Q/ What’s the difference between almond meal and almond flour? A/ Both almond flour and almond meal are made from blanched, ground almonds. The real difference is in the texture: Almond meal is the consistency of cornmeal while almond flour is more finely ground. They are interchangeable in most recipes; however, if you require a finer texture, for example, in a loaf or a pancake recipe, it is best to choose an almond flour. Almond meal’s coarser texture is ideal to give chew to baked goods like fruit crumbles or as a replacement for bread crumbs when coating chicken or fish. In a pinch, you can pulse almond meal in a small food processor until you get a finer consistency. – MARIANNE WREN We goofed! Editor’s Note: We sincerely apologize for misspelling the…

3 ways with mighty miso

Probiotic Paste A common Japanese condiment, miso is a fermented paste made from cooked soybeans and koji, a rice starter culture. Packed into fermentation crates and left to culture for weeks or years, miso contains beneficial bacteria, also known as probiotics, that can improve gut health and strengthen the immune system. Miso also contains an enzyme known as Aspergillus oryzae, which has been shown to improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis). Due to its soy content, miso is a concentrated source of isoflavones, the regular consumption of which may help prevent liver and breast cancers. Restuffed Sweet Potatoes SERVES 4. 2 large sweet potatoes2 tbsp white miso paste (TRY: Eden Foods Organic Shiro Miso)2 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce2 tsp peeled and grated ginger2 green onions, thinly sliced +…
