Why Healthy Eating Shouldn’t Depend on Your Address

What’s the dirt on “clean eating?” The trendy phrase that has gained popularity, spurring many people into a ‘lifestyle change’ that adopts less processed, more organic, and ‘clean’ foods. This is generally okay and may encourage people to adopt a healthy lifestyle and incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diet. That’s awesome!

But… unfortunately, there are some complicated impacts of this trend that warrant a serious conversation. The expectations for clean eating may be impossible to achieve for families who struggle to afford groceries - and that’s a lot of people in our country! When it comes down to it, many of my clients in lower socioeconomic communities tell me they’ll skip over produce if they can’t buy organic… because it’s not ‘clean’ or healthy. This begs me to ask: Is there something dirty about clean eating?

I am THRILLED I could share more about this with you. Learn more in my article posted on Healthline HERE! Leave your comments so we can continue the conversation.
