Episode 49: How to Eat Clean

Cutting out packaged + processed foods is the KEY to restoring, maintaining and building health.

We call this “Clean Eating”!

The best and only way to know how clean your food is… is to make it yourself. 

Listen. You don’t have to be Martha Stewart or Chef Boyardee (wait, please don’t be Chef Boyardee)…. but you do need to know how to cook a simple and healthy meal for yourself.

Cooking is a basic life skill. It’s relaxing, healthy and even saves you money💰!

Since WWI (100 years ago, wow) processed foods began with the need to feed our soldiers overseas and those at home with food that wouldn’t spoil and took little or no preparation.

People saw how convenient these products were and now, decades later, we’re seeing the terrible toll it has taken on our health.

Many food preservatives, sweeteners, dyes, flavor enhancers (aka chemicals) are affecting our health through weight gain, heart conditions, autoimmune conditions, cancers, brain degeneration and even ADD, ADHD, depression and anxiety! 

It’s time to go back to basics and eat food- REAL FOOD aka Simply Seasonal
