Eating “clean” means basically eating as close to natural as possible. Clean foods are foods that have little to no processing. If you are concerned about not eating clean enough, a good rule of thumb is to stick to the outter rim of the supermarket, where the produce and meat is typically kept. Below is a mini article I found about clean eating that I think sums it up pretty well!
“Clean eating is different for everyone. Everyone has their own interpretation. Here are my basics:
Nothing white. No sugar, no white flour (bread, pasta, etc), no white rice. If it’s white, and it’s not a vegetable, I don’t eat it. (This requires lots of ingredients list reading!)
Lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean meats. If you really think about it, this is a HUGE variety of foods. You should NEVER feel hungry or deprived while eating clean. If you’re doing it correctly, you’ll constantly be satisfied, and you won’t get all those bothersome cravings that you used to get. (Although, occasionally a treat is nice.)
No Alcohol. This was not a big sacrifice for me, since I’ve never been much of a drinker. But I add that to the list because alcohol is pure sugar.”
