Clean Eating: The Detox Diet That Works

Clean-Eating

Throughout 2016 and into 2017, the term “clean eating” has been thrown around left, right, and centre. However, many are unaware of the true meaning of clean eating and how it works as an effective detox diet. Below, we look at the definition of clean eating and how you can embrace it.

 

WHAT IS CLEAN EATING?

In simple terms, clean eating is a commitment to eating less processed foods and, generally, more whole (or “real”) foods instead. This includes cutting out added sugar, salt, and fat, as well as preservatives. When you choose a clean eating detox diet, you’re choosing foods that are natural and fresh rather than those processed in a lab – consequently, you’ll be benefitting from foods packed with nutrients rather than eating for the sake of eating.

Though nutrition is key to a proper detox, what is equally important is whether you are digesting your life or not. Is life nourishing you or eating you alive? Are you satisfied and fulfilled with the life you have created? If the answer is a repeated negative, then perhaps it’s time for deeper type of detox diet.

 

Advices to start a good spring detox diet

Fresh spring greens such as watercress, baby spinach, and spring onions. Leafy greens contain several crucial nutrients, like pyridoxine, folic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin, and raw watercress leaves’ digestive enzymes help the body absorb nutrients during digestion. The vitamin K in spinach may contribute to a healthy nervous system and brain function, and spring onions are plentiful in B-complex vitamins as well as essential minerals like copper, iron, manganese, and calcium.
