Warm Chicken Stir-Fry Slaw
What is clean eating?
In a nut shell, clean eating is eating food in its natural state. Clean eating is avoiding all the processed and refined foods we have come to depend on. If the typical American diet is no longer working for you, then you might just try clean eating. No more white flour, sugar, trans fats and fried foods. Instead, choose lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats. It is good for you, and it is good for the environment. So wipe your slate clean, and start clean eating.
Sucrose and starch tolerance vary. Individuals may need to modify the recipe to meet personal diet goals.
