Clean Eating and Gluten Free Diet

Clean eating means to eat food the way nature intended. It is not a diet, it is consuming and preparing food in its most natural state. By consuming clean food, your body will stay energized and keep burning calories effectively all day long


For those that suffer from gluten sensitivity or have Celiac Disease it is vital to follow a gluten free diet, unfortunately, most gluten free prepared food products are loaded with starches, refined sugars, and unhealthy fats to make them taste better


Three rules of clean eating are, choose unrefined over refined foods, whole natural foods over processed foods and eat healthy fats such as cold pressed oils, avocados and nut butter over margarine and vegetable shortening
