Eating clean is the most fundamental step of all. We begin by cleaning our diet. Every little thing our body has become stemmed from what we had consumed up to this very point. We really are what we eat and our colon has become what it is now because of us. We all have to trace our roots and go back to eating cleaner food.
What is a clean diet? In the simplest sense, a clean diet is a diet consisting of food with as little to no preservatives and has not gone through industrial means to be produced. You can say that a clean food is something that we can grow in our own backyard like apples, bananas, oranges, carrots, lettuce, and basically what you define as fruits and vegetables. A clean diet doesn’t have to be all vegetarian, though. A clean diet can also mean limiting fatty meat and focusing on eating the lean parts instead. A cleaner diet will always consist of having a lot of vegetables and fruits on a daily basis.
Aside from having good cleansing properties, these fruits and vegetables are also capable of much more benefits than they seem. They have a multitude of nutrients that can nourish the body in ways junk food can only dream of. What’s even better is that they’re natural and they never have to be dangerous for us. We can always find ways to prepare them ourselves and we can be creative about it. The perks of eating cleaner far outweigh the certain hike in food budget.
A good diet will never be too expensive. If anything, it doesn’t even have to be. It can even get cheaper. Focus on eating common fruits and common vegetables and they shouldn’t have to have a bad impact on your budget.
Most fruits and vegetables are pretty cheap for the benefits they give you and you don’t have to eat those specially prepared steaks just to eat steak. It’s all about how you budget your money with your health in mind. It will be good practice for you too since you’ll then know the different benefits of eating healthier while keeping more money in your pocket. Never forget: The best investment is your health. In the end, you won’t have to spend so much money on medicine or hospitalizations due to the cleaner diet you start now.
