Hot Health Trend: Clean Eating

Hot Health Trend: Clean Eating

One of the top health trends of 2014 is clean eating. Despite how it sounds, it’s not washing your food.

Instead it's avoiding processed foods and eating healthy, natural foods.

While this might not look like your kid's favorite meal, three-year-old Hope and one-year-old Jami don't know anything else.

"Parents ask me all the time how you get your kids to eat healthy and how do you get them to eat vegetables. It's really simple. You do it, and once you do it, it's so simple. They just want to follow your own lead," Hope and Jami's father, Neil Rohe, said.

For around five years, the Rohe family has been practicing clean eating.

"If God made it, chances are it's really good for you. If man made it, there's always stuff added," Neil said.

The Sioux Falls family says the number one obstacle to clean eating is time. That's why they plan out all their meals for the week during the weekend.

"When you plan out your week of food, it actually becomes very convenient and easy, and you save a ton of money at the grocery store," Neil said.

"Making out a plan at the beginning of the week and cooking in double batches and things like that are big time savers," Sanford Registered Dietitian Jocelyn Johnson said.

Registered Dietitian Jocelyn Johnson also recommends eating plenty of foods without a label, like fruits, vegetables and fresh meats.

"Reading the labels and the ingredient list. The things with the fewest ingredients are the most natural," Johnson said.

While clean eating might take a *little extra time, this Sioux Falls family says there are a *lot of health benefits.

"It's the most important thing we do. Our daughters are our motivation for eating healthy because we know they don't eat healthy unless we eat healthy," Neil said.

As part of his chiropractor business, Neil Rohe teaches classes on healthy eating, including clean eating.
