Clean eating: Getting real food back in your diet

Clean eating: Getting real food back in your dietfrom Clean eating? Barbara Mintz thinks the term is silly. Real food? Who comes up with these phrases? But regardless the trendy buzz word you want to use now, Mintz and fellow registered dietitians and doctors are rejoicing that Americans are now finding it cool to do what they've been telling us for years to do: Eliminate processed foods from our diets and replace them with an array of vegetables and fruits, whole grains and lean proteins. "It's like, 'OK, now you're finally getting it,' " said Mintz, vice president of healthy living and community engagement for Barnabas Health. Clean eating continued its spread throughout the masses last year, but health experts say it's not just a flashy fad that should be discarded for 2015.
