Your Dinner Plan to Eat Clean for a Week (Page 7)

6. Know What You’re Getting with “Convenience” Products

Sometimes we have to rely on convenience products when we’re in a time crunch. And the good news is that not everything in a box or a can should be off limits if you’re trying to clean up your diet. Read ingredients and choose products with short lists. Check sodium numbers and choose products that have little or no added salt. Worried about BPA from cans? Beans and tomatoes can be found in aseptic packages and some brands have ditched BPA from their cans altogether. Check the labels or refer to websites for information pertaining to BPA in your favorite canned products.
