I have been hearing the phrase “clean eating” a lot lately. What exactly IS clean eating? I always knew it had to do with eating healthy and weight loss, but I never really knew exactly what it entailed.  Clean eating is simple. It is the concept of eating healthy, whole, unprocessed foods.  Here is a little more info on what clean eating is. Who knows, maybe you will want to try it out for yourself!

  1. Choose foods that are unrefined: This means that you eat more whole grains like quinoa and beans as well. Clean sugars are sugars like honey, agave, and maple syrup.
  2. Be aware of salt, sugar, and fat: When you cut out processed foods, it makes it a lot easier to do this! These are responsible for a lot of the extra calories we take in every day. Clean foods are naturally low in those three things.
  3. Don’t drink your calories: High calorie drinks like flavored coffee and soft drinks add an extra four to five hundred calories a day. Yikes! Choose water or green tea instead.
  4. Include carbs, fat, and protein in every meal: We usually get enough carbs and fat in our diet, but a lot of times we lack protein. Protein is important when you are trying to build muscle and can also keep you fuller longer.
  5. Minimize processed food: Try and focus on eating natural foods, not foods that are out of a box or can.

I am trying my best to eat clean, and if you want to live a healthy lifestyle, then you will too!

XOXO, Chels

Green tea is a sort of miracle drink. Many people don’t realize that drinking a cup of tea a day can improve your health immensely.  Some may even call it the healthiest drink on the planet.  After reading all the amazing benefits green tea has to offer, I hope you’ll be running to the store to buy your own!Chelsea Crockett- keep calm and drink green tea

  1. Green tea protects against various illnesses including diabetes, infection, and can even lower your risk of cancer.
  2. It helps improve brain function by protecting neurons. Drinking green tea everyday can reduce your risk of memory loss and Alzheimer’s at an old age.
  3. Green tea burns fat resulting in weight loss and better sports performance. If you are in a sport like cross country, having a low fat percentage is important to improve your running time. Green tea can help with that.
  4. It can actually make you smarter? That’s right! Combined with the subtle amount of caffeine, the amino acid L-theanine can improve brain function.
  5. Green tea kills bacteria in your mouth, which improves dental health.
  6. All in all, green tea can improve your overall health since it is full of nutrients.

Next time you’re at a café, coffee shop, or the grocery store, grab some green tea! I’m positive your body will thank you for it.

XOXO,
