What's Cookin': Clean Eating
Clean eating isn't about sanitizing your food. On today's program, we'll explore the multitude of health and nutritional benefits associated with the "clean eating" lifestyle. Our resident foodie, Patrick Evans-Hylton will join us to talk about how clean eating is all about consuming whole food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible. We'll also talk about other holistic eating habits, including veganism and vegetarianism. Call in live at 440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240. You can also e-mail the program at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/hearsaywithcathylewis.
