That’s where clean eating recipes come in! Add these 12 best clean recipes for faster weight loss to your healthy menu.

Clean eating recipes are dishes that focus on whole or minimally processed foods. It’s the difference between choosing store-bought applesauce with added sugar or a fresh apple. Many processed foods are notoriously high in ingredients that harm your body. From excess sodium to refined sugar to artificial flavors, these additives are incorporated to make food look and taste more appealing and, in some cases, increase shelf life.
