Pinterest has introduced me to many things, one being clean eating. I had never heard of it before, but basically it’s about putting only natural, nutrient-rich foods into your body. You eat lots of fruits, vegetables, lean meats and grains and rid artificial ingredients (including anything genetically altered) from your diet. This article from the Huffington Post provides a great intro to what clean eating is. The Gracious Pantry is a great blog resource as well.
I basically have three concerns with this decision.
- I don’t think I could completely give up milk chocolate.
- What would I do when traveling and visiting others?
- What would I do when eating at a restaurant?
I’m looking for some input from people who have made the commitment to clean eating. How do you handle these situations? Do you still incorporate your favorite treats into your diet once in a while? Thank you for your comments!
