How Exercise Goes Far Beyond the Calories Burned

Posted by cleanteam

 

Many of us consider exercise as a good way to lose weight. While calorie burn and weight loss have deeper health benefits, it is easy to get caught up in their superficial side effects. The benefits of exercise go much farther than simply the calories burned. Exercise positively contributes to a high quality of life. Just to start, it helps keep us young, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and helps promote fresh oxygen to our brains, keeping us clear-headed and energized. We recommend starting your day with a protein-filled Daily Shake to make your work out even more effective.

Try These Coconut Macaroons for Good Healthy Fats

Posted by cleanteam

Craving something sweet? Coconut macaroons are the way to go. These tiny treats are a great filling snack or dessert option. Yes, you can buy a similar recipe in the store, but they contain way more sugar (and likely some ingredients we can't pronounce). These macaroons are lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. We also love this chocolate sauce, especially when made with raw cacao, and it's 100% cleanse-friendly!

As you progress through your Clean Program journey, we want to help you discern which fats and oils are best avoided, and those that are helpful for the cleanse and your long-term clean diet. Here are the options we think are your best choices, and why.

This Low-Sugar Smoothie Bowl Is Awesome for Immunity

Posted by cleanteam

We all know we’re supposed to watch our sugar intake. Eating too much sugar (especially refined sugars) can lead to some serious health problems like insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, obesity, heart disease, and even cancer. It's also very addictive and can damage our gut health by promoting the growth of unhealthy bacteria. 

Probiotics help replenish intestinal flora and restore balance to the gut. They can help tip the scale back towards good bacteria and away from bad bacteria, fungus and yeast, reducing sugar cravings. It's also important to make sure you have some enjoyable recipes like this low-sugar smoothie bowl.

The Importance of Eating the Rainbow

Posted by cleanteam

We have come a long way since being reluctantly coaxed to eat broccoli as children. We've developed palates that appreciate a succulent mango or a peppery radish, and we understand that these foods are our primary source of vitamins and minerals, and ultimately, energy. For those who are extremely short on time or travel a lot, we recommend supplementing with a good Greens powder. The phrase “eating the rainbow” refers to consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables of different colors. But when you look at your diet, are you getting enough variety?

Why Quality Animal Protein is Good for Your Hormones

Posted by cleanteam

Here at Clean, we believe a variety of diets can work well, as we are all different and have different dietary needs. The aim of the tool-kit of our 21-Day Clean Program is a way to find out what works best for your body. Some bodies do very well with a largely vegan or vegetarian diet. Other people do better adding animal protein and cutting a lot of grains, or any number of blends of these diets. We highly recommend going the 21 days (or even 42, two back-to-back cleanses) to figure out what makes you feel good!
