What do we mean by, ‘Clean eating’, such a marketing and buzz phrase? Clean eating is a term often used to describe eating wholefoods, with minimal or no processing, as close to their natural form as possible. It usually involves a diet with wholegrains,plenty of vegetables and fresh fruit, lean meats, seafood, nuts, seeds and minimal or no added sugars, alcohol or highly processed foods. That is fantastic, and the way we should be eating.

Some products market as 'clean' but are they really? What about gluten free, no added sugar? Have we moved happily onto, 'plant based diet'?
