What does it mean to “live clean?” Does it mean having a clean house, or eating less processed foods, or connecting more with nature?
How about a bit of everything?
While there’s no one way to live a cleaner lifestyle, we can think of a few fun ways to start! Read on in today’s blog to learn more.
Make clean eating, fun
The best way to ensure that you stick to a clean, healthy diet? Make it fun!
Clean eating focuses on returning to natural foods, whole ingredients whose history and condition is clear and easy to see. Of course, even with those parameters, there’s plenty of room for delicious flavors to shine through.
Take, for example, our Superfood Breakfast Salad. Made with a variety of fresh fruits (including delicious blueberries), the salad is topped off with organic chia seeds in a pudding that makes these clean ingredients as healthful as they are tasty.
As always, with any of our Peach Valley menu picks, we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about ingredients or how a dish is made.
Spend more time outdoors
Sometimes, living clean means getting a little dirty by heading to the great outdoors. Surrounding yourself with greenery can help you stay refreshed, alert, and at ease—plus, it’s just a lot of fun. Hike around a nearby park, go fishing, or pick some flowers for a friend or family member. It’s a great way to embrace the summertime season and get back to the simple pleasures in life.
Rethink your workspace
In the pursuit of living clean, why not clean up your workspace? Doing so can lead to a stylish, more organized space—but it can also make it easier for you to stay productive and get more accomplished in a day.
Opt for a minimalist look by keeping your desktop free of stacks of paper, trinkets, and junk mail. Focus on what matters and what’s necessary to do the task at hand for a cleaner, easier-to-maneuver space.
Grow your own food
When you’re not dining out with us at Peach Valley, you can work on growing those same deliciously fresh ingredients at home! Start a small herb or vegetable garden so that you always know the history of every dish you put together.
Get back to nature and rethink your route to work or your local grocery store. Biking around in place of driving can help keep your environment at least a little cleaner—plus, it’s a great way to save on gas and enjoy the simple, reflective atmosphere of a ride past your favorite local sites.
With fresh natural ingredients serving as the foundation for all of our favorite dishes, we here at Peach Valley are happy to help you “live clean” this summer!
