So I have read through some of the posts and figured that I would start off by creating a short basic list of clean foods.
Nearly all veggies are clean. Eat veggies all you like! The exceptions are those which are starcy and are calorically similar to grains (potatoes, corn, lima beans, etc.) eat these in moderation.
All fruits are clean, however dried fruits have high concentrations of sugar in them and are not free foods.
Olive oil, canola oil, flaxseed oil, etc. are all healthy oils and you need some each day to make sure that your body is absorbing nutrients and is working properly. Pass on the vegetable oil and oils that you are not sure what they are. Butter is not clean. No way. No how.
LEAN meats, poultry, and fish are all lean. Processed meats (fish sticks, etc.) are not the best choices. Go for whole products when at all possible.
Extra lean beef (96/4, 97/3, etc.) is good for you and better than regular ground turkey. Ground turkey breast is best overall - but some people prefer red meat. Chicken is good as well. White fish is less calories than say Salmon, but fish is good all around.
You want to stick with egg whites instead of the yolks for most of your preparations.
Whole wheat is best if you opt for grains - brown rice, whole wheat pasta, etc. are much better choices than the refined bleached counterparts.
These are just some basic guidelines! Please feel free to add your own!
