Clean eating. What is it? In a nutshell, clean eating focuses on eating whole, unprocessed foods. Ancient East Indian philosophy classifies this type of food as “Sattvic”, or freshly prepared, and not overcooked, spiced or salted.
Clean eating is meant to reduce the toxic load placed on our bodies by not overwhelming it with high amounts of salt, sugar, fats and chemicals found in so many foods in today’s grocery stores. To achieve this sort of diet, we often have to prepare meals at home. For some of you, perhaps the thought of time-consuming meal preparation comes up.
