While eating healthy has been a lifestyle or trend for years and years, a relatively new way to stay healthy and look great is clean eating. Clean eating means eating only healthy, unprocessed or minimally processed, and whole foods. This means not eating foods that come in bags, boxes, or cans as they likely contain preservatives or added salt, sugar, or fat. Even organic foods aren’t necessarily considered clean foods since they aren’t always in their natural form and can still contain preservatives (jarred pasta sauce, for example). Basically, the idea is to eat foods that are as close to their natural form as possible. Eating clean isn’t about counting calories or adding protein to your diet, it is about being healthy. Processed foods can contain GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) which have been linked to various health issues such as cancer and infertility.
Beauty Benefits of Clean Eating
Clean eating doesn’t just benefit your physical health, it can also improve your skin and appearance! Eating too much sugar can elevate your insulin levels, affecting oil glands causing oily skin and acne. Processed foods and foods with unhealthy fats and sugars can cause an imbalance that effects skin, hair, and nails. A clean diet can improve complexion and reduce acne and wrinkles. Here are some popular clean foods that will benefit your health and appearance:
- Berries- they are packed with antioxidants that can help clear skin!
- Pumpkin seeds
- Brown rice
- Avocado- helps skin stay moisturized!
- Sweet potatoes
