Eating free…

Who doesn’t like eating? Who doesn’t like FREE?  And as my friend and actor extraordinare Steven Smith says “Food is even better when it’s free”!

Now that I’ve got you all excited, I’m not exactly talking about FREE FREE like $$ -cost- FREE, well, kinda, but I’m talking about eating free from junk you can’t pronounce… free from the guilt of eating something you will soon regret…eating free from toxic stuff disguised as flavor or creamy sauce once you add water and food with a shelf life that could outlive the last tube of lipstick you bought…(that’s another story).

Anyway, we’ve been talking about celebrating freedom this month and it dawned on me that we need to take advantage of eating free a.k.a. Clean Eating.

It is eating the way nature intended. You eat the foods our bodies evolved to function best on, and that makes you feel – and look – fantastic. When you Eat Clean you eat more often. You will eat lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. These practices keep your blood-sugar levels stable and keep you satisfied. The best part is that if you need to lose weight it will happen almost without you having to try. And yes, you can have a treat now and again.

Best of all, Eating Clean keeps you feeling great and full of energy. In fact, you can forget all about the days when “dieting” meant feelings of hunger, lethargy or deprivation.

Eating Clean is not a fad; it’s a way of life

Listen to this interview with Tosca Reno, author of the Eat-Clean Diet.

The best most effective way to increase energy, speed up your metabolism and manage your weight is by eating healthy.  I try at best, to eat a consciously clean not just for me, but my entire family. Clean eating doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive or boring. With a few really great resources, you are only one meal away from recharging and literally changing your life!

And if you are thinking “there’s no way my kids will eat this stuff”, Eat Clean diet has a cookbook for kids and recently released a Eat Clean for men,  but many of the recipes available on the website kids (the big kids too) will enjoy!!!!
