Join us for our 28-Day Clean-Eating Challenge. Spring clean your diet with clean-eating dinner plans, recipes, inspiration and tips.

You can greatly improve your diet and clean it up in a snap by cutting back on processed and packaged foods, which can be full of sodium, added sugars and ingredients we can’t pronounce. Certain packaged foods, like plain yogurt and pre-washed salad greens are a healthy part of a clean-eating diet. It's the foods with a long-list of ingredients or that you could easily make yourself at home that you should think about cutting down on. Try cooking up a stir-fry at home instead of getting takeout, or making homemade pizza instead of using frozen.

Recipe to Try: Clementine & Five Spice Chicken
