April 15, 2021

Eating clean is an integral part of maintaining a healthy weight. Even more, eating clean and lean is a key part of energy improvement, restfulness and overall well being. At first glance, ridding your body of excess weight might be the main benefit gained from a clean and lean diet. It also might seem that sticking to clean simple eats is a rigid, hard to maintain way to eat. 

Fortunately, that's not the case. A clean simple eats lifestyle can make you toner. It's also not as hard to pull off as you might think. Keep reading to learn about clean simple eats tips, recipes and advice. Above all, be patient with yourself. After all, if you've spent years eating sugary meals, processed food and food high in carbohydrates, it  may take several weeks to grow accustomed to eating and drinking clean and lean. But, after you see the rewards of your diet change, don't be surprised if you start to absolutely love clean simple eats. In the next section, we'll cover easy ways to get started with clean and lean eating. 

About Better Eating

Although food labels, like the detailed labels on HerbalGoodness super fruits, plants and herbs, offer an insight into ingredients, vitamins and minerals contained in food, reading labels isn't the only way to achieve better eating. To begin, stock your refrigerator, pantry and cabinets with organic foods and foods that have not been processed or that have been minimally processed. 

Also, add more fresh fruit and natural vegetables to your diet. This may be one of the best clean simple eats tactics. For example, instead of munching on potato chips, snack on a banana, apple or papaya. While making salads with HerbalGoodness plants and herbs, try a homemade fruit dressing instead of a heavy processed salad dressing. 

Reduce the amount of refined carbs that you eat. White bread, sugar, pizza dough, many desserts, pasta, soda and a lot of juices are types of refined carbs.1 Not only are these foods low in vitamins and proteins, refined carbs can cause sugar spikes. In fact, a diet of refined carbs could find you feeling hungry an hour after you eat a meal, not what you want. The good news is that there is help. You have much better food options here at HerbalGoodness and at home.

Clean Recipes for Family and Kids

The sooner that you start clean and lean eating, the earlier you may see the evidence of your efforts. Even more, if you're a parent and you start eating better, you can influence your kids to prefer clean simple eats over sugary, high calorie foods and drinks. Another fact that you may appreciate about cleaning cooking is that this lifestyle change doesn't always require more money or more time. 

In fact, some clean simple eats take less than 20 minutes to prepare. As a tip, to maintain a clean and lean diet, keep fruit and raw veggies in your kitchen. Also, consider stocking up on organic, non-GMO HerbalGoodness herbs, plants, extracts and Matcha and MCT powder. It's these super foods and supplements that you can add to shakes, baked recipes and breakfast, lunch and dinner meals. Here are a few clean simple eats recipes that you can try at home.
