We have put together lists of ingredients that you can stash in your pocket as your to go list when picking up your groceries! There are two keys to clean eating. The first in eliminate all refined sugars, white bread and pastries, preservatives, color additives, fat replacers and toxic binders.

Clean eating really just means eating the best and healthiest options in every food group! Do not be afraid of fats, by eating healthy fats, which are found in olive oil, avocados, salmon etc.  They are good for your heart, brain, balancing moods, helping relieve symptoms of ADHD, depression and bipolar disorder, shiner hair, weight loss, better sleep and increase your energy.
