    Clean Eating magazine defines clean eating as enjoying food in the most natural state available. Clean eating is not a diet plan; it is a lifestyle that aims at improving life one meal at a time. The basic guidelines the magazine emphasizes are eating five to six times a day; selecting organic foods whenever possible; drinking a minimum of two liters of water every day; being label savvy and buying only foods with one or two ingredients; avoiding processed and refined foods; and steering clear of toxic additives.

    People who are into clean eating focus on healthy fats, eat reasonable portion sizes, and keep a small carbon footprint. They buy humanely raised local meats and sustainable harvested seafood. They don’t rush, but east slowly and savor their food. They take meals to go rather than leaving their options to chance, and they prefer eating in community with the people they love.

    Clean eating begins with your grocery list. To be successful on your healthy eating program, you have to be prepared. You want to know you can open a cabinet or your refrigerator door, and have healthy food on hand. A basic grocery list template can be your best tool.
