The easiest first step to clean eating is to simply add in more fruit and veggies to every meal and snack. When I grocery shop I try to hit the produce section first and load up. A good goal is to add 2 –3 veggies to every dinner meal and eat one fruit and one veggie as a snack for each member of your family. This will immediately add in nutrients to your diet.
What about organic?
This was a question I asked myself too.
Below is a list of fruits and veggies. One side is called the Dirty Dozen and the other is the Clean 15. This list is from a report from EWG (Environmental Working Group)
The truth is….some fruits and veggies are safer at the grocery store than others because of pesticides added.
By choosing to buy organic from the Dirty Dozen list, you are choosing a more clean product.
The Clean 15 is considered safe and clean to purchase non-organic.
If this is overwhelming for you, remember that clean eating is a lifestyle. You don’t have to change everything overnight!
Focus this week on simply adding in more fruits and veggies to your meals and pick one or two from the dirty dozen side to swap out to organic.
