I would also add to the above eating organic wholefoods where possible as our crops are sprayed with a concoction of pesticides and chemicals therefore creating toxic and deficient produce which goes on to create toxic, deficient consumers. Organic farming methods ensures you are eating the most highly nutritional clean foods!

I would say I follow clean eating principles although I’m Vegan. I eat mostly if not only organic foods and I try to stay as far away from processed foods as possible which means I eat A LOT of veggies, fruits, and whole grains. I’ve been eating this way for awhile so when I do have something overly processed it’s not very tasty to me. Going out can sometimes be a challenge because certain foods will make me sick now because there are so many yucky ingrediants in them – it really is a lifestyle change but it makes me a much happier and healthier person. I also recommend juicing, I am at a point where I couldn’t live without my juice!

@Mochabarbie26:  NO! I believe it’s one of the biggest myths that eating healthy is expensive. My husband does not follow my same food plan as me and he spends far more at the grocery store. My most expensive purchases are usually seeds and oils but they last for months! I think organic veggies get a bad rap too. Compare some organic celery/cuccumbers/kale to a bag of lays potato chips or cookies, the price is way less – at least at my stores. Staples for me are brown rice, quinoa, and beans which all can be purchased in bulk and for pennies (realistically less than 10 dollars for a lot!). I do go to the grocery store more because whole foods don’t last as long as over processed items and there is more time put in for food prep as opposed to opening a bag and hitting 3 min. on the microwave, but as far as money. No it is not more expensive to eat healthy. Now if you’re currently existing on Ramen Noodles and McDonald’s it might be more pricey but I think it’s worth it.

@Mochabarbie26:  Nope! Eating clean is pretty inexpensive! 🙂 Since I started eating clean, I’ve actually had a lot more extra cash.

One good trick I’ve learned: Buy chicken breast with the bone in and learn to de-bone it yourself. Saves a LOT of money!!
