Eating clean is eating real food from nature. Avoiding processed food. What is real food? Food that spoils. The old adage says: "If it doesn't spoil, you shouldn't eat it." There are more clean eating food choices than the list below but the list below is a good start. 

You can say with some certainty that if the food you want to eat grew on a plant, tree or in the soil and it looks the way it did when it was harvested, it's clean eating. 

With respect to eating animals: We've always heard that "We are what we eat." This is true. The fact that many overlook is that rule applies to animals too. Many times the animals we eat (fish, cows, pigs and chickens) are fed a diet that doesn't consist of their natural food choices and a diet that is filled with injected hormones and drugs to make the animal grow bigger. Keep that in mind when shopping. The best choices are always the ones that have been tampered with as little as possible from the farm to the table.
