Yours truly, Wendy Battles, the Clean Eating Coach, has a week’s worth of healthy meals planned and I’m already loving what I’ve made and it’s only Tuesday.
After a few weeks of eating more than I normally would during the holidays, not to mention being out of my usual routine with family and friends visiting, I’m happy to be back in rythym with my meal planning efforts. For me, meal planning has everything to do with practicing clean eating, day after day, and week after week, in a way that’s inviting and delicious.
Although I didn’t totally overindulge during the holidays and go crazy, I did eat more meat and cheese than I normally would which has me feeling a bit congested. All the more reason for some simple recipes and clean eating meals this week.
Here’s a look at what I’m whipping up:
- Tuna burgers — I love this recipe from Tosca Reno’s Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook. They are super simple to make and so delicious!
- Quinoa with sundried tomatoes – also found this in the Eat Clean cookbook
- White bean and kale soup — I adapted a recipe I found in Vegetarian Times years ago and gave it my own creative spin. First time making it and it’s delish. Yesterday my husband was wowing about it as he ate it for lunch (and truth be told, I was too — lol)
- Moroccan spiced turkey meatballs — I found this recipe on the Clean Eating Magazine site and it looked easy and delicious. I made the sauce already and it smelled divine while cooking. I’m a big fan of Moroccan cooking and the mix of cinnamon, cumin and ginger in the sauce just makes me smile. I’m going to whip up the meatballs tonight
- Sauteed collard greens with sea vegetables. I’m sauteing the collards with some wakame, one of my favorite sea vegetables, chock full of important minerals that our body needs
- Broiled salmon to round out the week
I love that everything I’m making is simple, uses fresh ingredients and is satisfying. Breakfasts are focused on raw, green smoothies that include kale, spinach, bananas, avocado and berries, just to name a few. Lunch always includes a salad along with soup. All these whole foods means boundless energy and are helping my body re-engage with clean, light eating.
What’s on your meal plan for this week? What are you making that’s simply irresistible and is supporting your clean eating efforts, post holidays? How does planning meals support your clean eating efforts?
