It's about to real on the blog today people. Real complicated. Ok, maybe not so much complicated, but I just really felt the need to post about this, because the words "healthy" and "clean" are so abundant around the blog world now a days that I was just wondering...do you guys think there is a difference? What is healthy food? Is it the same as clean food? If you are eating healthy does that mean you are a "clean eater?" And if you are not eating "clean" does that make you unhealthy? Here's my two cents. And again, this is ... Continue Reading...
