Today, a friend from my elementary school days messaged me about wanting to eat “cleaner”. And that got me thinking…
What does it really mean to “eat clean”?
It certainly has been a buzz word as of late. But what does it actually mean?
Well, to me it means eating whole foods. Foods that are rich in nutrients. Foods that are unprocessed. Foods that make me feel great!
Take these cinnamon rolls for instance!
Yeah, they definitely DON’T qualify.
How is your body suppose to process that junk?
Well, it can’t. At least not very well.
But it definitely could process these!
While these may not be completely unprocessed, they are definitely nutrient dense! And they are made with real food! And I can eat these (okay…several of these) and feel great!
And sometimes, for me, that is more than enough.
It’s funny, but once I started eating whole foods, and avoiding foods filled with chemicals, I lost my taste for all things highly processed.
Plus, I love finding healthy alternatives for not so healthy foods.
Case in point…these yummy cinnamon rolls! And they are so simple to make! Really…if I can make them, you can make them.
