When you see an ingredient list that long, it does not fit into a Whole Food, Clean Eating way of life.  Steer clear.

What is Clean Eating?

“The soul of clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible.  It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life–one meal at a time.”  Here are some of their tips.

“Get Label Savvy.  Clean foods contain just one or two ingredients.  Any product with a long ingredient list is human-made and not considered clean.

Avoid Processed and Refined Foods such as white flour, sugar, bread and pasta.  Enjoy complex carbs such as whole grains instead.”
