UPLIFT YOUR SPIRIT WITH THIS ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CLEAN EATING

 

Did you know that everything in this world including humans is energy and everything that is made up of energy has its own vibrational frequency? Since we live in a vibrational Universe, it means whatever we eat, think, believe, and do play a role in our overall vibrational state and our well-being. 

 

It is this vibrational frequency on which a lot of things depend on. For instance, our health, our moods, our relationships, our actions and so much more. The higher our vibrational frequency is, the better opportunities we attract in life. While we may not always be able to control our surroundings, we can always control ourselves and raise our frequency to live a healthier and happier life. 

 

“You are what you eat”.

 

Yes, you must have heard that a lot in life. We are what we eat because whatever we put in our body, directly affects how we feel and our overall energy levels. In order to raise your spirit, you can take care of your diet by clean eating.

 

Yes, by clean eating, which includes cutting out processed stuff and incorporating nutrient-dense, fresh and natural foods in your daily diet. This will raise your vibrational frequency and make you feel more energetic and also enable you to attract the best in life. 

 

Clean eating has become quite a trend in the past years. The reason behind this is simple: in search of ways to lead a healthier lifestyle, people inevitably go back to nature. 

 

If you’d also like to try it, but you feel overwhelmed by all the information available online, you’re at the right place. In this article, you’ll find all you need to know about clean eating, processed foods, and how to apply the main clean-eating principles to your everyday diet. 

 

What is clean eating?

 

Most of the popular diets support the idea that you have to change your eating patterns so that you consume more or less of something – for example, more protein or fewer calories. But clean eating is not a diet; it’s rather a way of life. 

 

When eating clean, you pay attention to only one thing: consuming foods that are as close to their natural form as possible. This means that if you want to eat clean, you should avoid processed or refined foods, but you should also pay attention to the way you prepare your meals. So each step of the food’s journey to your tummy matters.  

 

Therefore, you can make sure you apply the clean eating principles in your life by just eating whole foods, right? Well, yes and no. Eating whole foods is easier said than done. Nowadays, the food industry processes or refines most of the foods. Therefore, it can be quite a challenge to change your life in this direction. But it’s totally worth it!

 

Why is clean eating important?

 

Eating processed food, using a lot of plastic goods, drinking alcohol, and taking medications… Imagine all the toxins your body has to cope with daily! All of them go straight to your liver, whose primary function is to detoxify the body. Unfortunately, it has a certain capacity and once overloaded, it can’t perform its function properly.

 

This is when anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, brain fog, or mood swings hit you. All of these issues are the voice of your body, trying to tell you something. 

 

The clean eating lifestyle minimizes the risk of being in contact with substances that interfere with your body’s normal functions. 

 

What is processed food?

 

The first step to eating clean is being able to recognize when a particular type of food is processed, and also up to what degree. 

 

Processing is not always bad – for example, sometimes it includes removing toxins, or preserving a certain product so that we have access to it even outside the season. Actually, even steamed broccoli is a kind of processed food as cooking something is changing its natural form. 

 

If you want to eat clean, you should avoid ultra-processed foods, such as:

 

– foods which look like other foods (for example, vegetarian chicken made of soy proteins) 

– ready-to-heat meals

– foods partially made in a lab – instant meals, sauces, fast food. If there are too many ingredients that remind you of your chemistry class, it can’t be natural!

– foods with additions – salt, sugar, fat, preservatives, vitamins

First steps to clean eating

 

Like any change, switching to clean eating might seem almost impossible at first. As I want to help you with this endeavor, I prepared three steps that will help you adopt this new lifestyle within no time. 

 

 

  • Listen to your body

 

Among the biggest challenges is to stop snacking. If you want to eat clean, you should forget about eating chips, donuts, microwave popcorn, and chocolate. One way to be more mindful of your meals is to acknowledge the signs that your body gives you. For example, eat something nutritious when you’re hungry, and stop eating when you’re full instead of finishing your portion at any price.

 

 

  • Eat whole foods

 

Do you feel like eating a blueberry muffin? Eat some blueberries and oats instead. If you still want to buy packaged foods from time to time, always check out the label. Does this product contain mostly “real food” ingredients, such as eggs, milk, fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, or whole grains? Then you’re good to go.

 

 

  • Simplify your meals

 

Be aware of the ingredients and methods which you use when cooking. It’s best if you include a source of lean protein, whole grains, and healthy fat every time you eat. 

 

 

Clean eating meal plan

 

You have to be aware of your eating habits to change them. That’s why planning your meals can also help you in your clean eating quest. When trying to figure out what you’ll eat throughout the whole week, you become more mindful about it, and it’s easier to see the big picture. 

 

How many times do you eat takeaway or instant meals? What do you snack on? Do you often skip meals? Answering these questions can be an eye-opener.

 

Here are some tips on what to include in your clean eating meal plan. 

 

Unprocessed foods: raw nuts, farm-fresh eggs, dried legumes, fresh fruits, and vegetables.

 

Minimally processed foods: cold-pressed oils, unrefined grains (quinoa, brown rice, whole-wheat bread), hormone-free dairy, unprocessed meat, frozen fruits, and vegetables.

 

However, something to add here is that apart from the diet, don’t forget that you are also what you think, so just eating high vibrational foods is not the answer. If you maintain clean eating and take care of your diet in the best way possible but on the other hand, you do not work on clearing your negative and limiting beliefs, you’ll still find yourself in the same low vibrational state of yours. 

If you want to find out which foods worsen your well-being or maybe it’s just your negative thinking patterns that are holding you back in life, book a free discovery session now. We can discuss your eating habits so that you can focus on the foods which benefit you the most or work on improving your mental diet as well.
