Clean eating is the buzz phrase of the last few years, the trend that encourages you to replaced processed foods with nutrient-packed meals.

Kale and trendy alternative sugars such as agave nectar and maple syrup have come to symbolise this craze.

But what other foods would you need to buy in order to change your lifestyle and become a clean eating fanatic?

A healthy lifestyle website has put together the ultimate grocery list of everything you could ever need to stock your cupboards full of goodness. But be warned: buying everything on the list will set you back a whopping £230. 

FEMAIL worked out how much it would cost to buy everything on this ultimate clean eating grocery list, adding up the sums for every food 'category'. The total came to more than £230 FEMAIL worked out how much it would cost to buy everything on this ultimate clean eating grocery list, adding up the sums for every food 'category'.

The list was put together by healthy lifestyle website 'Healthy. Happy. Smart.'

It breaks down foods by category, such as beans and pulses, dairy, and protein. By far the biggest category on the list is fruits and vegetables.

The grocery list is only a guide to the kinds of foods a clean eating fanatic should be stocking their cupboards with.

But when FEMAIL did the sums, we worked out that it would cost a grand total of £230.51 if you bought all the ingredients on the list.

To buy all the fruits and veg you'd need for clean eating recipes, it would cost you £61.31, while buying healthy fats such as coconut oil and every type of nut will set you back £61.81. 

The high cost of the list is down to the large number of obscure, and expensive, items on the list, many of which can only be sourced from specialist food shops, such as safflower oil, tempeh and adzuki beans.
