|Eating Clean? Look at Your Trash. If your trash looks more like the picture above, than the one below you may have an issue with what you are eating.|
|Think about it. Highly processed foods come in fancy packaging from companies that dedicate money to make it designed to sell.
Meat (from the meat counter or butcher) comes in paper, fruits/veggies and healthy fats come in a bag or simple aluminum can. Oils (like olive oil and coconut oil) come in a bottle and you only have to buy them every so often. You also may find that if you are buying fruits and veggies from the produce section and you wrap them in a bag, you may even recycle that bag. We do… we have two dogs! All of this is reducing your trash output considerably.
|If you are eating real food you will find that instead of having to throw away packaging you may even be able to compost the waste. I will be the first to admit, we have not taken the time to start a compost pile (largely because we are renting), but in the past we have grown gardens and it was one the coolest experiences I have ever had, to grow my own food.
Back on topic… this is not some radical free loving hippy approach to say “save the earth”, but you big dummy SAVE THE EARTH! It is the only one that we have, and we can’t keep pumping crap into landfills or our body for that matter. Take a look at your trash can and think about if your guts look like an full trash can that needs some fruits and veggies composting in it, instead of a overflowing landfill.
