Day 6 - Eating Clean Mini Challenges

Day 6 Eating Clean mini Challenge:  Try two new whole foods that you have never had before!

Whole foods are considered a food item which only has one ingredient and is not processed or refined.  For example:  Peach, Potato, brown rice, broccoli these are all whole foods. 

Here are some whole foods which is less common to give you some ideas:

  • Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”)
  • Barley
  • Parsnips
  • Kale
  • Collard greens
  • Steel cut oats
  • Papaya
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Black-eyed peas
  • Chickpeas
  • Bok choy
  • Swiss chard
  • Radicchio (pronounced “rah-DEE-kee-oh”)
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Watercress
  • Dates
  • Kiwi
  • Eggplant
  • Pomegranate (and having the juice in a martini does not count!)
  • Fava beans
  • Lentils
