Clean Eating

In an attempt to make the most out of The Challenge, Brandon and I have been eating clean.
For those of you who aren't really sure what eating clean means...basically it is eating foods in their most natural state.  It's less about dieting and more about avoiding processed foods, foods with loads of preservatives, foods with lots of added sugar, and foods with high levels of bad fats (some saturated fats/all trans fats).  You want to avoid foods that have been stripped of their nutritional value and/or have been injected with large amounts of chemicals that you can't pronounce. 
If you are wanting to go a little cleaner with your diet here is some information that I found helpful.
Now, let's be real here.  We aren't eating clean 100%.  But the gradual changes we have made really make a difference in how we feel.  I can tell a difference on days that I don't eat as well.  And just so you know-greasy fast food doesn't even taste that good anymore!  

As you make your grocery list filled with clean foods take into account the chemicals used on your produce.  
Try avoiding the dirty dozen...or at least go for the organic version. 
 If you have any clean eating tips I'd love to hear about them. 
Have a clean day-
