Good vs bad food

Eat this, not that; How to clean up your diet

Clean eating doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Here's a list of the basic do's and don'ts. You can meet most of your needs shopping at Target or Walmart, or even your local bodega.

Note: A plant-based diet doesn’t mean giving up meat. It just means shifting your emphasis from meat, fish poultry as the heart of a meal to give veggies, legumes, and whole grains a starring role.

The Mediterranean Diet is a great place to start if you’re looking for recipes and meal plans. But diet plan aside, keep the following list top of mind and start with a few simple changes to your current diet: 

Eat this:

  • Fruits & Vegetables (eat the rainbow)
  • Green Tea
  • Legumes, lentils & plant-based protein (tofu)
  • Fish (wild caught / sustainable)
  • Organic/free-range chicken and turkey
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Whole grains
  • Olive Oil

Not that:

  • White rice, white bread, white potatoes (skip the white stuff)
  • Soda and Sugary drinks
  • Foods with added sugar
  • Fried foods
  • Processed meat
  • Potato chips and candy
  • Processed foods (with lots of ingredients)
  • Margarine
