Do you know the New Year’s Resolution that’s made most often? If you guessed “losing weight,” you’re probably right. And there are probably as many weight loss gimmicks as there are people trying to win the battle of the bulge!
This past year, there has been a tremendous focus on vegan and vegetarian diets, as well as the concept of “eating clean,” which focuses on only eating natural, organic foods that have zero chemical additives, zero hormones, zero anything that isn’t natural. You can eat meat, but only unprocessed meat that’s been raised organically and has never been treated with antibiotics or hormones. Just make sure you choose wild over pastured and pastured over grain-fed. Fish should be wild caught, not farm raised. And the same applies to dairy — you only want to consume hormone-free dairy and cheeses. The goal of eating clean (or clean eating) is to detox your body from all those years of eating dextroWhatchaMaCallit, and red dye #30485! Basically, if it comes in a box or a can, it’s probably not part of the clean eating principal.
Not being a dietician, practicing vegan or clean eating aficionado, I’ll make it easy on those of you who want to eat healthier in the New Year, and perhaps make a lifestyle change for the better. It can start with a simple box of organic food, delivered right to your door.
