Last week, we talked about clean eating and the various definitions people can give of it and how it might be misunderstood. Today, let’s take a look at the idea of chemicals in our food. I read a post recently where the author pointed out that everything we eat is made of chemicals, even our blood and tissues are made of chemicals. Well, right. But I think there’s a pretty big difference between chemicals that are found in nature and chemicals that are made in a laboratory, so when I’m talking about avoiding food like products with chemicals in them, I’m referring to those chemicals that were made in a laboratory. While the human body is pretty freakin’ amazing, and it can take a lot of the crap we send it, I don’t think it was really designed to process those chemicals. My rule of thumb is: if you can’t say it, you probably shouldn’t eat it. To keep things really simple… If you focus on eating real, whole, food, then there’s pretty much nothing to worry about.
And if you want a kick-start in doing that, have I got something for you! Later this week, I’m rolling out a FREE 5-Day Clean Eating Challenge.
