Why Clean Eating is Good for Lazy People

I had an epiphany….clean eating is good for lazy people.  Stay with me here…

How difficult is it to keep up with the latest diet trends – low fat, high fat, low carb, no meat, all meat, Mediterranean, South Beach, this supplement, that pill, fasting, this cleanse, that vitamin.  Of course you’re going to be confused (and probably lose interest), there’s a lot to follow!  On the flip side – you know fruits and vegetables, whole grains, unrefined oils, unrefined sugars, and organic dairy is best for you, right?  BINGO, you understand clean eating.  The basis of clean eating is using REAL ingredients….from the earth, minimally processed (obviously something like cheese has to be processed), not made with ingredients you can’t find in your own kitchen, etc.

Your body will thank you, and you didn’t even have to put in that much effort – great, right?!  Here are the benefits I’ve reaped from clean eating so far – energy (more of it and more consistent), less migraines, healthier hair, clearer skin, and a more stable mood (I think this is associated with the energy peaks and valleys I used to experience).  My blood pressure is also back to normal after a minor scare.  When you’re putting nutrients (including healthy calories) into your body, your body will respond by functioning more efficiently and even letting go of some of that fat it’s been storing for a rainy day.

Afraid of missing out on pizza, creamy pastas, dessert, or bacon?  Don’t be, it’s all still here for you.  This is the easiest “diet” on the market and the most valuable thing you can do for your body.  Something to think about…

    You’re so right! I always cook from scratch but I have two issues that aren’t on the clean eating list. Tortilla chips and red wine. I think I’m going to eliminate both for a week and see where that takes me.

      Not a bad idea since they’re both processed, however, I still eat Garden of Eatin’ tortilla chips and since I work for a winery I must keep up with my industry research 🙂 If you want to get away from corn chips have you tried Beanitos? They’re tasty!
