What is clean eating?

eat-real-foodClean eating has become my ‘food philosophy’; it has totally changed my relationship with food.

Clean eating is not about dieting or counting calories, there is no guilt and no pressure. It’s all about enjoying real foods in their most simple form;  vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. It’s a rainbow of colours and flavours on your plate every day! Needless to say that it provides great sources of vitamins, nutrients, healthy fats and proteins (yes, that too!). It’s a very healthy and happy way of eating; you don’t feed your body, you nourish it with the best that nature has to offer!

Clean eating bans all kinds of naughty refined foods such as white flour, refined sugar and oil. Last but not least, and it might not please the bacon-eaters, but it also limits the consumption of meat (chicken and fish included), eggs (Omega-3 or/and organic are fine though), and dairy products.

Diets simply don’t work

eb8a8126639aadbfe252e93ec2c3092fDiets are destined for failure. Everyone should know that. They might work on a short-term basis, but then what?

The ‘egg diet’, the Atkins diet, the ‘carrot diet’, the ‘low-carb diet’, the ‘I only eating in the morning diet’, the ‘500 calories a day diet’; none of them work because none of them are sustainable. Of course you’ll lose weight, but you’ll regain it really fast if you don’t make a real life change. Let’s see why. Continue reading

The SweetBeet Juice

Beetroots (and most vegetables really) are best eaten raw since cooking might destroy most of the nutrients they contain. Or – my favourite of all – you can just juice them up. I find beetroots a bit too “earthy” though, but combined with some carrots and oranges, it’s perfect!


  • Beetroot, 1 large or 2 small
  • Carrots, 2 large
  • Lime, 1
  • Blood orange, 1
  • Fennel, a big piece (take a look at the pic)
  • Ginger, 2-3cm

The Spinach Wrap

Forget about food supplements or multivitamin tablets, eat your greens! They’re packed  with antioxidants, minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese), dietary fibre, and nutrients such as Vitamins A, C, E and K (especially found leafy greens such as kale, spinach or lettuce).

The Spinach wrap is a cool and easy alternative to a regular wrap or even bread. You can see from the picture that I made it a little thick (it’s more of a pancake really), but you can make them thinner and smaller if you want to.


With this recipe, you’ll make 2 thick wraps and about 4 thinner ones. And for the record, it’s also full of protein thanks to the egg white (11 gr / egg white)!
