EATING CLEAN: KU WELLNESS COMMITTEE
There has always been a myth that eating clean is a diet, but it is not. It is just a habit of choosing the right food and nutrition for your overall well-being. The fundamentals of eating clean encourage you to consume more whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats, while limiting highly processed snack foods, sweets and other packaged foods. Once you create a habit of clean eating, the preparation time is much shorter. Take it slow by gradually alternating basic things, like having an apple instead of apple juice, or having grilled chicken breast instead of chicken nuggets.
