What are whole foods?
Foods that are as close to their natural state as possible, meaning they’ve been minimally handled, processed, and refined (“processing” refers to adding colours, sugars, preservatives, or really any additives to the ingredients to create a final product). As you can imagine, this cuts out a lot of food!

6 COMMON CLEAN EATING MYTH YOU SHOULD STOP LISTENING
Clean Eating Myth #1: You Don’t Have Time
Would your whole attitude change if you could improve your lifestyle and health through clean eating with just fifteen minutes per day?
That is all you need, around fifteen minutes.
Take a day or two to empty your kitchen of all toxic and processed foods. Anything that is not on your good list, you’ll need to throw away.
Now that you have cleared out your kitchen, your shopping list will be simple and won’t take you as long.
Clean Eating Myth #2: You Need To Be Gordon Ramsey
Gordon Ramsey, the chef, loves preparation but you don’t have to be a chef to prep the easiest meals to cook within 15 minutes.
Prepare as much of your food as possible, such as cutting your carrots into sticks, removes stalks from sprouts, adding portions to containers and anything else that will make cooking simple.
Clean Eating Myth #3: You’ll Make A Start Soon
Just ask yourself the question. Can you commit to making small changes in your routine to live a healthier lifestyle?
You don’t have to restrict yourself to drinking kale and spinach juice every day or even counting calories. All you need to is stock healthy wholesome foods and eat those instead of processed foods.
The benefits of eating healthy now are that you don’t have to worry about your health further down the line.
Clean Eating Myth #4: Putting Yourself Down
If you fall flat and fail seven times, get up and do it again eight times. Thinking you’ll fail because of previous failures is the wrong mindset and not good for motivation.
Stick to clean eating for at least a week and weight yourself. You’ll find that you’ve lost weight, feel better, and that should be your motivation to move forward.
Clean Eating Myth #5: Will My Family Help Me?
If you’re the person in the household that makes all the meals, then your family will have no problem supporting you and may even join you. They’ll see a difference in themselves within a month.
Keep them active. Instead of the kids sitting down playing video games after a meal, get them for a little walk. Eating clean will cause them to feel motivated and get things done around the house.
Clean Eating Myth #6: It Costs Too Much Money
If you think eating clean is expensive, then you are entirely wrong. It costs more money to buy processed food. Instead of eating the chicken carbonara processed meal that costs $6, buy all the ingredients for around $10, and you’ll find you can make four meals in total. By shopping with a clean eating mindset, you’ll be able to make your money go much further.
There are many more myths or negative things people think about when eating clean which simply aren’t true. You just need to make a start.
HOW TO MAKE CLEAN EATING EASY?
When you think of clean eating, you’re probably thinking of a diet that is restrictive. Eating green leaves every day? Throwing away the foods you love. It doesn’t have to come to this as by eating clean your kitchen pantry will be filled with new wholesome foods.
When you first start eating clean, it can be difficult to give up your favourite foods such as pizza, burgers, and chips. You have seen other people make the transition from enjoying junk food to eating clean, but you cannot get there yourself.
Below are a few tips that can make your life a little easier.
1. Get Rid of Unhealthy Food
Go through your kitchen cupboards, your pantry and get rid of any unhealthy foods. There are plenty of other foods you can still enjoy through clean eating. When looking at the different types of foods, you want to keep, ask yourself if you really need it in your life and then bin it.
2. Go Shopping
Your next step will be to go shopping and grab wholesome foods but before you add anything to your shopping basket, read the labels.
If there are words you don’t like the look of on a particular product, look for another similar product with less than five ingredients. Think of it like this… If you’re able to make the same product at home using the ingredients on the list, then you’re onto a winner. Avoid processed foods as much as possible as they contain many toxins that aren’t healthy for you.
3. Research before you Dine-Out
Thinking of going out for food, it’s probably the best idea to go online and download the menu of your favorite restaurant. Fast food restaurants will have ingredients on their menus, but local traditional restaurants may need a little more digging.
Ask restaurants for replacements, such as replacing burger buns for lettuce, replaced fries with a salad, ask that vegetables be cooked in olive oil instead of full-fat butter.
4. Fight your Cravings
There are temptations all around but before you give in, take a minute and align yourself with your emotions. Think about why you have these cravings? Is it due to bad habits, lack of activity or are you eating because of stress? There are many ways to deal with these issues such as meditating or talking to a friend.
5. Don’t Give Yourself a Hard Time
If you fall for your cravings and give in, don’t get upset. It will take time to go through a change, and it doesn’t always work out. Look at why you slipped up and think of ways to avoiding it. Did you slip up due to lack of preparation or was all based on emotions?
If you could go back in time, think about how you can go through the day differently. By investigating why you slipped up can usually show you how to remedy the problem.
Clean Eating doesn’t have to be difficult, get organized, be fully prepared, and develop the right mindset. You’ll have a much easier time going through the clean eating process.
