10. Farm-to-Table and Raw Restaurants
With people becoming increasingly conscious of where their food comes from, what’s in it, processing procedures, and the environmental impact of transporting and packaging food, it’s no surprise that restaurants who cater to the clean eating crowd are popping up more and more. The idea is that they buy directly from the source, cutting out all the middle-men and serving food that is straight from the farm to your table. These places support local producers and are essentially committed to clean eating by serving patrons meals that are natural and fresh, and consist of locally-purchased food.
There are also raw-food cafes that serve lighter meals and offer raw vegetables to patrons, since clean eating includes consuming a lot of fresh produce. Vegetables are probably the easiest and safest foods to eat raw, lending themselves perfectly to the clean eating crowd. If you’re really focused and committed to eating clean, you can make your kitchen follow the farm-to-table trend by growing your own vegetables and buying from your local butcher, or joining community/shared plots.
