And so the -- clean diet is actually something.
That is really popular among celebrities.
And athletes body builders people like that they know that it's really important -- clean.
You can keep your food minimally processed but.
I mean most of Americans are not particularly familiar with that because we're so used to being fed food.
That just has so much stuff on it has been so processed in factories and that's really honestly what's -- that sort of talking about essentially.
-- -- -- No this is not about raw foods got a raw food diet it's more like about eating the foods like a real -- supposed to say apple chips something that's process -- Or when you have your chart apple wouldn't offer on the well that technically a snapple is raw food on this but what I mean by that event is coming of -- everything I know I didn't that I -- about making the point that you're not on direct about that one.
But what guarantee that we don't eat chicken raw but we could eat chicken drowned with tons -- stop in heavily fried and all that and this is to sort of more about.
It's roasting -- -- steaming the chicken or doing something minimal to it and then adding lots of flavor but not flavor that is.
So thick and -- piled on that you can't find chicken.
-- have you ever -- to places like that where there's so much stuff on it.
Summit's chief and I used to itself Lanka he didn't albeit on any markers now look like you're in great shape are -- -- alone pop artist -- Perhaps some sort of chicken and -- -- seriously process steps.

You know well it's that sets one's opinion.
Most definitely there -- certainly a lot of protein sources in the world of vegetarians and that you can get it and it's great I -- I actually.

It is so people can -- -- -- people like -- -- example anybody fish sold most of those -- -- him.
Whether processed chickens.
But if you think about which -- actually doldrums.
So are your proponent of vegetarianism.
Organic organic raw fruits organic profits well I'll tell you something about organic -- -- -- delicious and they're actually couple restaurants scenery in the city that are raw food restaurants they're great here's the problem with that it's.
And why I.
Per I am per bruising -- critically died as opposed to -- is it's very very very complicated to prepare if you want to have.
A lot of variety he could certainly you know live your life on eating apples and raw carrots and -- celery and all kinds of raw foods but -- as you would know because you -- very obviously in to this.
Getting all the -- -- the and all the different sauces that they make in in the raw eating discipline.
Takes a lot of effort it's very very good -- -- sheets beyond expensive.
It is not cost effective for the average American but it is fantastic and certainly very much for treat and I I like it.
Very much but I just don't think it it's particularly practical for the working person every single day so that's what this is all about the is all about being easy this is also not about having a fad diet -- is about and as you would know this because of the way that you look.
If you each well.
You'll look forward to verify product order to avert a breakfast.
Okay it's a typical breakfast for instance would be some service movie.
You can have a -- need from Greek Joker which is high in protein and you can add some.
Offer to it and if you need to have a little bit this week -- -- a little bit of the god they unit capital of trivia and it's.
And -- splendid up and it's very easy it takes two minutes or less to do and that's what really this is about convenience for American families because that's what we're really need to think of.
So a lot today and -- apple -- perfect marks another it's not really happen.
That's not really happening and that's expensive too now that that cost you money when you walk out I mean that's expensive are we're talking and.
-- some -- stalled accord can claim why doesn't make sense about it.
All the factors the room to room to recommend -- Should criminals constantly and so that's what that's what most people -- listeners are okay.
Well but you know what if you choose a good sources I mean then you have to kind of be your own food detective who we wanna talk about that.
But I mean you're talking about a difference in philosophy now.
I mean I don't know that it's more common sense but while -- don't -- -- necessary practical you know to tell all of America to a lot of raw food diet on blonde -- fantastic and it's something to try.
I love it but little or -- to torment and it's -- drilling one takes on the karma so old little chicken civil casuals and -- -- about free range.
Well over -- -- you can trust them so if you contrast from the what about arrangements in place -- the animals were ethnically treated listen you're you're talking to somebody thinks about this.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Frank I don't and I'll -- the union rigs.
Because adoption of -- -- among.
Others have wanted someone to -- object -- bought.
It couldn't so what was your typical content or hundreds of okay let's talk hello my breakfast okay could have visibly -- -- -- -- How.
How about a a white beans salad with vegetables.
That would be totally empty belly beans -- navy beans.
That's a good source of protein right and you could have a mixed field greens.

On brags menos which is a liquid -- It comes from the sultan -- comes from soy protein.
And you could squeeze a lemon in there man and a half teaspoon of olive oil and if you need a little was sweet -- -- -- about half teaspoon of about face her arm that work for you and nobody was murdered in that process unless you -- to cook protest now like a B I'll I asked at a time for little -- gonna help.

Fish I could do salmon with a little bit of dill.
And fresh still that would be learn how to -- sauce with lots of cream that you could make until sauce say out -- a yogurt.
And I would say some steam snow peas.
Which -- which is really really good feature and it's very very clean -- -- the idea of eating is to be -- the idea is to get the food in to take the nurse human and get it out.
-- -- -- -- -- -- not only help but it.
-- -- -- But the was white right precisely.
