Clean Your Plate
It’s not too late for us to make a clean start to 2022. Consider making a lifestyle change by practicing “clean eating.”
“Clean” food isn’t food that has passed the 5 second rule—and just to be clear, dirt and germs don’t know how to count to 5, so they latch on to dropped food as soon as it hits the ground. You might want to think twice before eating that! Clean foods are whole foods that haven’t been processed, refined or had ingredients added to them. Included on the list are fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, meat, fish and eggs.
Choosing whole foods over fast and other processed foods is a great way to increase nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber in our bodies and boost health benefits. Some clean eaters may also exclude gluten or dairy items while increasing raw fruits and veggies.
Today is a good day to make a clean start and practice a more thoughtful way of eating. Try making delicious whole food dishes on your own, with the family or with someone you care for. Let’s spread the health! iGrow Girl & Contagious Health 🫐🥕🍳
