What is 'eat clean' or 'clean eating' anyway? Colleen defines it as eating a varied and balanced diet, which contains: healthy fats; high fibre and wholegrain carbohydrates; lean proteins including oily fish and plant-based proteins; plenty of fruit and vegetables; and minimal amounts of free sugars, salt and saturated fat.

Here's a small sample of some of Colleen's favourite healthy recipe and meal ideas, as featured on her lifestyle blog and personal Instagram page.
