Daily Recipe: Roasted Honey Glazed Carrots
Nearing the New Year has inspired a lot of us to pledge ourselves to a healthier year. That may mean you decide to go on a strict juice fast come January, or you may decide to be a bit more mindful, and try to eat a little bit cleaner.
What exactly does clean eating look like?
To us, clean eating means getting back to food that is real. Avoiding processed food, and trying to eat things that you recognize (and can pronounce). Clean eating involves a lot of vegetables and fruits, sticking with whole grains and organically raised protein. The whole purpose of eating clean is to let your body take a break from trying to process refined sugars, saturated fats and foreign foods that are abundant during the holidays.
If you follow food blogs, are on twitter or are generally interested in food, you will start to notice people’s pledges to get healthy in the New Year. Many people take the leap and dedicate themselves to doing a cleanse at the start of the year. If that isn’t your cup of tea, just consider being more mindful about what you eat. Resetting your body with healthy foods will make you feel unstoppable for 2013.
