Concise Guide to Clean Foods and Eating Clean,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Eating Clean in a Dirty World: An easy to follow guide to cleaning up your diet for life (Kindle Edition)
In a world of high volume industrialized food production and high fructose corn syrup, Jennafer Ashley's concise new book "Eating Clean in a Dirty World - An easy to follow guide to cleaning up your diet for life" is nothing less than a breath of fresh air.
Ashley is a registered Dietetic Technician who is obviously passionate about the field. She breaks down her healthy food choices into convenient sections like proteins, fruits and vegetables, grains, dairy, fats and oils and sugar and sweeteners. This makes for a handy reference guide for any person who is shopping and who wants to buy and prepare the healthiest foods possible.
She then moves on to other related subjects. For example section 2 is entitled "Steering clear of processed foods". In section 3 she tells the other side of the story, and that chapter is entitled "Surprisingly unclean food favorites". She concludes with "Super clean Super foods".
Prior to reading this short book I could not have properly defined the difference between eating clean and not eating clean. Generally it means using fresh, organic ingredients that have not been exposed to pesticides, avoiding genetically modified food products as much as possible, and purchasing meat and fish products from animals that have been treated humanely and have not been administered lots of hormones and antibiotics. There are cases, however, when conventionally produced fruits and vegetables, for example, are perfectly acceptable, and the author gives specific examples of these.
For people wishing to control their weight and to give their bodies the healthiest foods they can, this book should be mandatory.
