Are you thinking about engaging in clean eating? Want to improve your diet? If you are considering clean eating, there are quite a few things you need to know. Let’s review three key rules for this diet now:
Go Organic When Possible
More often than not, organic produce is the best choice for your new clean eating diet. This helps to ensure they are as free from chemicals as possible. With this said, however, some non-organic produce may still be just fine to include in a clean eating diet. All you really need to do is check the standards around where you live to help you determine what your specific options are.
Be Able To Pronounce Ingredients
Looking at some packaged food options is fine for clean eating, but only if you do so carefully. Some of this will come down to your judgement about what you are looking at, but the golden rule is asking yourself if you are able to pronounce and recognize the ingredients on the list. If you can do this, chances are this packaged food is fine if you are eating clean. If you cannot, however, we would almost always rule it does not fit the requirements of clean eating, regardless of anything else.
Cook At Home
The best thing you can do for your clean eating diet is to cook as much of your food at home as possible. This helps ensure you truly are eating clean. When you go out to eat at a restaurant, chances are there is at least one part of the meal that does not meet the standards of clean eating. This is raised even more so when you are at fast food restaurants. On occasion you can find suitable options, but this still makes your choices limited, which is why cooking at home is the best choice.
