What is Clean Eating

As you know, or at least I've stated before, you may be new and not actually know… whatever! A few years ago I read Dr. Terry L. Wahls' book Minding My Mitochondria after I had dealt with tingling in my face and hands that just didn't seem to go away. That was the first time I had ever thought about the correlation between MS and what we eat. Now I have always loved to eat healthy, but Dr. Wahls book helped me understand more why I wanted to eat healthy.

At the time this line of thinking was revolutionary. But I am now starting to see more and more doctors embrace the notion that perhaps if we started with a healthy lifestyle, perhaps we won't need to prescribe so many pills?

Really, that's what eating clean is all about. It's a lifestyle. It's knowing exactly what you are fueling your body with. Trying to consume our food in it's most natural state. Am I the next Fully Raw Kristina? Well, maybe, but most likely not. She is awesome though, and I love her blog, instagram feed, and Facebook pages.

So what have you got to do to eat clean?
