Clean Eating is simply consuming food in the most natural state possible. This is not a diet area or a quick weight loss system, more so a way to have a better lifestyle - one meal or snack at a time.

I used to work at a diner in New Jersey and they had the most wonderful spinach w/garlic side. I have tried many times to duplicate this, I get close but it just isn't the same. I steam my spinach then transfer to a baking dish with olive oil and garlic and bake in the oven. Would putting the dish in a water bath help to "meld" the flavors?

Also, plant a few window herb gardens or lettuce gardens. A little bit will go along way, so enjoy some fresh air and plant some good health!
What are your thoughts in preparing for fresh, healthy, sustainable fruit and vegetable meals this spring and summer?

I know my starches and carbs are very limited, and it has caused me to lose a lot of weight. I've also got more energy than I used to have, and my cholesterol and other labwork are so good I'm off all my medications, including blood pressure and cholesterol meds.
The book says the obesity epidemic began with the use of refined grains and sugars and has escalated ever since. This author has dietary recommendations near the end of the book, so when I get there, I'll share some of those. I think most of them will fit well with mediterranean foods, except maybe the amount of pasta usually served. Not that whole grain pasta is bad, but the quantity we eat needs to be decreased.
