What does clean eating mean to you?

I'm just curious those of you who eat clean- what does that mean to you? I'm newish to the clean eating movement. I'm sort of following the eat clean diet but my work schedule doesn't completely allow me to do that as I would like(getting the snacks in at the right times and what not) but I try to follow the principles. I also try to buy whole, organic, and free range type foods. I was really proud of my trip to the store today, the only think I got from a middle aisle was some pasta and peanut butter! So how to you apply the principles? I'm looking for ways to make it work better for myself and dh. thanks ladies! Oh, and I already follow GRkater's blog:)

Re: What does clean eating mean to you?

  • Right now, I'm just trying to stick to the "eat whole, natural foods" part of eating clean. I don't eat at the intervals suggested, but I have been eating mostly unprocessed foods. Before that, I'd been struggling quite a bit with sugar binges; eating clean has helped a ton with that particular struggle!
  • To me, clean eating is eating right 90% of the time. This also means staying away from processed foods and eating 90% natural foods. I allow myself the occasional cheat day, but overall, since I have started eating clean, I really like how it makes me feel and what it does for  my body.
