The Leaner in Cleaner

April 19, 2010

For us, diet is a 4-letter word. It conjures up visions of starvation, sacrifice and self-induced torture and ultimately, sabotage. When you have to find excuses to cheat no other than your own conscience, you know there’s something broken. If you’re a fan of word puzzles then you don’t need to look much further than our very own moniker to shedding unwanted pounds. 

Get Lean by Getting Cleaner. 

Our very own sales and marketing manager extraordinaire Ninfa is living proof. Just like a beautiful banana, she peeled off 15 pounds just by making a few small changes in her diet. Cleaner fruits and vegetables. Fewer chips and soda. Nutrient denser, Less processed foods. She looks great and feels more energetic and she’s getting her family on board. It’s a formula my 4 year-old can recite: Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables + lean protein and plenty of alkaline water = happy, healthy physiques. 

The ‘er’ in the everyday goes a long way to empowering yourself and everyone around you. Lean back, lean back. 

  


 Junk Food Confessions

When you’re about to say something you shouldn’t, you might bite your tongue. The fact is much or your ability to control your entire body lies in that little pink bundle of muscle. Your natural ability to sense sweet, sour, salty and bitter are there but sweet and salty are heightened by your sense of smell, making foods that fall into those categories that much more difficult to resist.   

Don’t despair. For every ‘vice’, there’s a delicious alternative that will satisfy your cravings and your wagging tongue’s need to feed. It may just require a little retraining for your tongue. Even kids have to try something new 8 times before they give them the boot.  

Here’s just a few of our EAT Cleaner solutions that deliver sounder nutrition with every guilt-free bite. Just don’t eat the whole bag.

An ode to one of our favorite green holidays, we’re found this ANDI-friendly, nutrient dense kale patty that we’re sure you’ll flip for – whether you’re Irish or not. Pinch me, I’m in green heaven!  

 

We love Anna Getty for so many reasons. She’s an heiress, chef, and rock-steady chick with a sustainable vision who happens to be a great friend of Eat Cleaner. Her new book Easy Green Organic is a visual feast with real recipes that will become mainstays for your family.  

To call it a cookbook would not do it justice. Anna takes the concept further, explaining how to shop for organic, seasonal, and local ingredients; how to keep an eco-friendly kitchen; and how to cook meals that are as scrumptious to eat as they are healthful for the earth.  

Our favorites are the Quinoa Croquettes with Cilantro Yogurt Sauce for dipping and the Strawberry Arugula Salad. Sweets like Coconut Custard with Fresh Mango and Mint Chutney and Pear and Blueberry Crisp with Brown Sugar Sour Cream are just two of the functional favorites on our menu.

FrankenFood Makes You Fat

March 2, 2010

Each American is exposed to about 10 to 13 different pesticides through food, beverages and drinking water every day. And nine of the 10 most common pesticides are endocrine-disrupting, which have been linked to weight gain.* In his book, “The New American Diet,” author Stephen Perrine talks about “obesogens” and how they play a role in the American obesity crisis. From pesticides to growth hormones, antibiotics and plastic pollutants, to name a few. Bad for the environment, bad for us, here’s what to avoid. 

In your refrigerator: 

  • The Dirty Dozen: Non organic peaches, apples, sweet bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, kale, lettuce, imported grapes, carrots, pears.
  • Farm raised fish: (e.g. Farmed salmon are up to 10 times higher in pesticides like PCBs as wild salmon)
  • Corn/soy-fed beef and chicken
  • Non organic dairy products

In your pantry:  

  • Plastic compounds (in particular BPA)
  • Lining of canned foods such as canned tuna, soup, beans and tomatoes
  • Lining of canned beverages such as energy drinks, baby formula
  • Sports drink bottles

THE CLEANER PLATE CLUB TIP:  Wash with EAT CLEANER All Natural Fruit + Vegetable Wash or Wipes to effectively remove pesticide residue from the surface of fresh foods. 

PEAS OF MIND:
  Rest assured that all EAT CLEANER products are made with BPA-free plastic, including our Wash + Dryer Kit Spinner and Scrub Brush.

Are Pesticides to Blame for Belly Bulge?

July 5, 2009

If the hundreds of sit-ups, crunches, ab rolls and plank tucks you’ve been sweatin’ over everyday aren’t managing to melt off that extra bulge around the middle, you may want to take a second look at what’s on your plate. 

Our bodies are a finely tuned machine when it comes to disposing of toxins and waste through the skin (sweat it out!), liver, kidneys and lungs.  Studies show that chemical toxins in our food – especially pesticides, preservatives, artifical color and flavors – can overload our metabolic systems and cause a sort of ‘break down.’  Excess waste is often stored in the liver (causing mid-section belly bulge – aha!)

While it’s a great idea to implement a detox cleanse every once in a while, why wait until it’s too late?  By using preventative maintenance, you can clean up your mealtime act.  Catch some of these easy-to-follow ideas:

1)  Eat Cleaner.  Avoiding pesticides and hormones in your produce, meat and poultry is a great way to ditch the damage.  Don’t forget to use Eat Cleaner Food Wash & Wipes (www.eatcleaner.com) to wash away surface toxins along with potentially harmful chemicals and agricultural soils from your foods.

2) Avoid artificial sweeteners.  Steer clear of diet sodas and foods and opt for natural alternatives, like stevia and agave, which actually help to balance blood sugar. 

3) Drink more water.  Keep your system flushed and flowing with the clear hydrator.  Water flavored with freshly-washed strawberries, cucumber and melon are a great, calorie-free refresher. 

4) Brown is down.  Avoid processed white flour and opt for the darker varieties, richer in nutrients and healthful benefits.  Whole wheat tortillas, sprouted grains (Ezekial bread is the bomb!), whole grain pasta and rice.
