CLEAN EATING

People who eat clean focus on whole ingredients,mostly homemade,ideally organic or sustainable,without any additives or preservatives.Unlike Whole and Paleo,no food gorups are off-limits.

“My grandmother has type 2 diabetes and she won’t hear anything bad about Splenda,”says 29-year-old food writer Cara Strickland.
