This question arises when following the media over the past couple of years.
An endless information flood likely drives one or two to completely swearing off the whole „healthy eating“ thing. Let´s take a closer look at why a Clean Eating Diet or better said a Clean Eating Lifestyle (we´ll talk about that a bit later) is so important and how to easily incorporate to your daily life.
These days, that we are more than ever before exposed to all kinds of harmful, environmental influences (think of GMO, pesticides, antibiotics, WiFi and cell phone radiation, „enriched“ tap water – just to name a few) and all kinds of stress (at work & during leisure time, lack of time, burnout) is on our daily agenda, our human body has to work to capacity on a daily basis in order to put up with all this.
(Hidden) Food allergies and intolerances, inflammatory bowel disease and all kinds of other disorders of the digestive tract have become quite a common thing and have been on the rise in our so called industrial nations over the past 20 or so years (source: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/756899 ).
That is why it should be a priority to keep ourselves as healthy as we possibly can – getting started with a Clean Eating Lifestyle is the first step towards taking over some responsibility for our health.
You will often read about the Clean Eating „Diet“, but to me, it´s a lifestyle, not a diet. (Read my 11 tips on how to get started here)
It´s not a trend either – balanced wholefood nutrition was just given a fancy name. Instead of googling „Clean Eating Grocery List“ you might just ask your grandma about what they used to eat when they were young 🙂
Living the Clean Eating Lifestyle is easier than you might think and its benefits clearly outweigh the efforts. I´m here to help you out with easy and delicious Clean Eating Recipes and motivation for the rainy days.
All the best – stay healthy & happy <3
