Nicole, I've seen the term "clean eating" before ... what is that exactly? (I could probably look it up!) ...

Lisa, Clean Eating is at it's simplest form, eating things in there closest to natural state. No preservatives, additives or chemicals. If you look up her cookbook on Amazon and check out some of the recipes you'll get a good idea of what it is. It's the closest thing to Raw but there are animal products in it. I think it's a great way to eat!
