Clean eating 101: Reset your health with Martha Stewart's tips, recipes

"Clean eating" is the hot new way to eat healthy, and proponents say you can feel better and lose unwanted weight by focusing on fresh, unprocessed foods and cooking at home as much as possible. Here, Martha Stewart shares four tips and four recipes from her new book, "Clean Slate."


1. Start with fresh produce, whole grains, and lean proteins; prepare them simply; and take the time to share and enjoy them.

2. Clean eating means making meals from scratch, whether a workday breakfast for one or a weeknight dinner for four.

3. Make your own snacks instead of relying on anything from a package.

4. Focus on every aspect of your meals — turn away from screens and devices and avoid other distractions so you can savor the process of cooking and eating.
