Clean Eating is simply the practice of avoiding processed and refined foods and basing your diet on whole foods. But there’s more to a Clean Eating plan. You can structure your diet to get proper nutrition, help manage diseases, avoid developing diseases in the first place, lose weight, remove toxins, and just feel better.


“People who live in neighborhoods with a higher density of trees on their streets reported significantly better health, and less cardiometabolic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity, and more.” – Nature.com: Neighborhood Greenspace and Health in a Large Urban Center


“Sunflower seeds were considered sacred by certain Plains cultures and were left on gravesites to nourish the dead on their way to the Happy Hunting Grounds.” – The Sunflower Project

Green Tips!

Bee proactive!

A few things you can do to help keep bees healthy:

  • plant different flowers that bloom throughout the season for the bees;

    • native plants and other perennials

    • bloom colors of yellow, white,  blue, and purple

  • watch for neonicotinoid-free note on plant tags- some tags will claim that insecticides were used for ‘your plant’s health’ (but NOT for the bees!)

  • leave the blossoms until they expire

  • plant plants with fragrant flowers with a long bloom season

  • consider early blooming plants for bees that have had little nourishment over the winter
